Pipes are better than cigarettes but harder to maintain and acquire tobacco for (pipe tobacco is not the same as cig-tobacco)

Smoking a pipe or the tobacco?
A pipe is detached, no extra paper, leaves or filter in the mouth, just a literal pipe, sucking in the smoke. It's more a different feeling when breathing it in than a specific tangible difference.

Tobacco wise, finely grounded and very dry tobacco works poorly with pipes in my experience. Burns away too fast and you can accidentally inhale the ashes since they're so fine. stringy not fully dry tobacco works best (don't pack it down into the pipe bowl though)

This is an old film about a fictional black militant uprising. When it was released, it was immediately banned by the FBI, who attempted to destroy all copies of it. It's pretty relevant.

How important was it for the soviets during ww2

I already made a massive effort post about this so there is no thread to really be had.
Please read https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=921020

TL;DR: Lend Lease was barely 4-10% of the Soviet war-effort, and the majority of it was delivered after the Battle of Stalingrad. The first deliveries didn't reach the USSR before the Battle of Moscow halted the German assault and pushed them back.

On top of that the majority of Lend Lease tanks and planes were inferior to both Soviet and German tech used, only the Studebaker truck and Aircobra were worth a damn.

On top of that was the fact that the main reason the Nazis had the power to even begin the war was because American, British and Continental European corporations actively supported Hitler up until 1941, with Rockafeller's Standard Oil helping refuel German Submarines up until mid 1942.

>inb4 Muh 1939-1940 Soviet-German trade pact

Soviet exports to Germany were 5th place in terms of amount and were only even that high because they got embargoed from their usual sources. The amount of Wheat the Germans got in trade from the USSR wasn't worth even a month of bread for the army and was less than 1% of Soviet food stocks. The USSR received thousands of pieces of machinery, equipment and military vehicles including a semicomplete ship of the line, the Lutzow, which took part in the war against the Germans.

The Nazis were also politically supported by the West throughout much of the war and prior to it, with Poland being a major part of this.

Getting back on topic.

The biggest entertainment name in history would have enough resources to not recycle animation cycles nowadays. Particularly when it is entirely CGI.

I mean… back in the day? When you had to hand draw each and every cell of animation? Yeah, I can see being cheap, or at least not wanting to cramp you hand over and over again while drawing it all.

But Frozen is a question of base character design when you can make rigs and shit, right? I realize it is likely more complicated than it looks, but you still start with a base model that simplifies things greatly that you can just copy and paste between scenes.

European castles and palaces are pure bourgeois masturbation, or remants of the degenerate feudal aristocracy that still somehow persists after centuries.

Anybody else in the bunker enjoy cars and motorsport?

Discuss anything motoring related here.

To start I'll say I've spent the last few days doing the brakes on my own car, including new calipers. Fucking hard work on an old POS, nothing comes apart easily.
