How is a power nap supposed to work anyway? If I fall asleep I'm not getting up for at least an hour.


A powernap lasts between 1 to 20 minutes, gives you the needed boost when you're utterly tired. You have to be in a situation when you don't have the choice and can't allow yourself to sleep more, if your subconscious knows you can permit yourself to oversleep without consequences it might take the upper hand.

Is that even possible? I thought people didn't dream in the non-REM stage.

it's possible if you're tired enough. lacking rem sleep means your brain takes it whenever it can. that's why you start having visual hallucinations with a lack of sleep/rem state; because your rem-stage is active while you're awake. your tolerancy for lack of sleep will affect how soon you start hallucinating while awake. the hallucinations get stronger the longer you stay awake.

Hey I've gotten those too! It was that day I fell asleep while pacing back and forth on guard duty. Prior to momentarily blacking out, I was seeing dark things swim before my vision. They were appearing all over the place which was kinda freaky.

yeah, i get the shadows out of the corner of my eye. usually bug-size, but the longer i'm awake, the bigger they become. i can't stay up for a long time anymore, so i can't remember what else i used to see.

because of my hallucinogen use, every time i move my hand in front of something dark or black, it blurs. and bright reflective lights pop out a foot from their original place of reflection. looks pretty cool in the snow. kinda screws with your depth perception though.

Wow I got the point of my essay writing where I'm randomly identifying sexual inuendos in historians' text.

I mean seriously am I alone in this? Here's an example and a direct quote from Davit Bate's book talking about William the Conqueror's marriage to Matilda from an esteemed house in Flanders:

'The marriage shows that William was now plouging his own political furrow'. This is the most obvious one, the rest were manufactured by the blurring of the text and reading between the lines.

Alright something else now:

Matilda was a four feet tall woman (tiny.... af,) and William was 5ft 10inches (60 inches to her 40). Now here's the best part.
'What Matilda lacked in size, however,she made up for in spirit.' According to a late tradition, her first reaction to the ambitious Norman was one of scorn. The story had it that, when she rejected his advances, the duke forced his way into her chamber at Bruges and, in his fury, beat and kicked her, so impressing her with his mastery that she declared she would marry nobody else.'

"Historically dubious", but still include it in the book for the kick of it.

I think in that medieval sense, mastery is exactly being able to beat her because of his physical superiority.  Simply put, being stronger like a master to a slave: I can do whatever I want to you. The past is seldom chivalric.

Apecrap in a positive or negative way?

From the little things I've picked up, Estonia wants to be part of Northern Europe, Latvia I have no idea about, Lithuania have strong ties to Poland I believe since they once were a kingdom united under a Lithuanian king.

Mostly in a positive way. Since the "prowest" dinguses are ashamed to be eastern european for some reason.

For a long time both Lithuania and Poland were ruled by the Jagiellan dinasty, a branch of Lithuanian Gediminid dinasty, untill the wife of king(emperor, since the grand duchy, and later the commonwealth fit all the criteria of an empire) Sigismund the Old, the fine product of house Sforza, allegedly began murdering the wives of her son, Sigismund Augustus, last of the dynasty(except for Barbara Radziwill, who died from ovary cancer)

since then, the Commonwealth didn't had a strong dynasty of rulers, except one or two that had some significant roles or achievements, such as Stepan Bathory or Jan Sobieski. The former came up with the famous winged hussars, and the latter used them to great extent to squash some of Artu's ancestors during Battle of Vienna.

Ultimately, the Lithuanian-Polish Empire was detroyed due to continuos wars with Tsardom of Russia, infighting and other things that befell empires. The decline of Jagiellan dinasty and the khokhol betrayal at 1648 were the first nails in this empire's coffin.

Then there was the infamous Stanislaw Augustus Poniatowski, who with his ilk pretty much sold out to tsaress Catherine of Russia and destroyed the Lithuanian-Polish empire. He's universally hated in both countries, but is actually more prominent in Poland, since the whole memory of the former union is stronger there.



But speaking from a geographical point of view, the Baltics always been a part of Northern Europe.
