    Germanic. Imagine scandinavian languages today. A mix between them and german would probably be the accent, if not heavier.

    This map was compiled in 1513 by the ottoman admiral Piri Reis. What makes it mysterious is the fact that it not only depicts Antarctica 300 years before its discovery, but also shows how the continent would have looked like if it wasn't frozen.

    One historian, Captain Lorenzo W. Burroughs, a U.S. Air Force captain with a background in cartography, claims that the depiction of Antarctica is accurate and that it looks like the continent before it was covered in ice.
    “The Princess Martha Coast of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica, appears to be truly represented on the southern sector of the Piri Reis map,” he wrote in a letter. “The agreement of the Piri Reis map with the seismic profile of this area made by the Norweigan-British-Swedish expedition of 1949 … places beyond a reasonable doubt the conclusion that the original source maps must have been made before the present Antarctic ice cap covered the Queen Maud Land coasts.”
    As for why Antarctica would be connected to South America, another historian has an answer.
    Dr. Charles Hapgood, the professor and historian that Burroughs had sent his letter to, claimed that in the past coastlines were exaggerated in size in order to make details easier to see. In the name of these details, coastal accuracies were often overlooked, resulting in continents that seemed more connected.
    The map was based on other maps previously drawn by greek, portugese or other explorers and was thought to be the most complete map in the world when presented to the sultan.

    Simo Hayha, The White Death. Wandered alone in the freezing forests of Finland sniping the soviets one by one. He killed 504 to 542 of them in less than 100 days and entire operations of the Red Army were organized just to catch him. He was wounded during the war, as a bullet went through his mouth leaving him scarred for life, but he lived to tell the tale and died aged 96 in 2002.

    The rhomphaia polearm, used by thracians as early as 400 BC. The romans had to add extra protective layers to their helmets, because it was so powerful.

    Neither had I. I knew it was an ancient weapon, but I thought it was an illyrian one, since its name is the origin of our word for thunderbolt, but I was wrong. Looks badass as hell though.
