  5. Which Had the Superior Military: First or Second World War Germany?

    This is unadorned/unfinished audio of a Dan Carlin discussion about which German military was superior, the First or the Second World War version. Unlike the approach in traditional Hardcore History releases, brevity wins out over depth in this attempt at short-form content from a traditionally long-form creator (note that it is still 50 minutes!)

  8. 34C3 - Dude, you broke the Future!

    In this talk, author Charles Stross will give a rambling, discursive, and angry tour of what went wrong with the 21st century, why we didn’t see it coming, where we can expect it to go next, and a few suggestions for what to do about it if we don’t like it.

    http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2018/01/dude-you-broke-the-future.html

    We’re living in yesterday’s future, and it’s nothing like the speculations of our authors and film/TV producers. As a working science fiction novelist, I take a professional interest in how we get predictions about the future wrong, and why, so that I can avoid repeating the same mistakes. Science fiction is written by people embedded within a society with expectations and political assumptions that bias us towards looking at the shiny surface of new technologies rather than asking how human beings will use them, and to taking narratives of progress at face value rather than asking what hidden agenda they serve.

  9. U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS MISSISSIPPI RIVER DOCUMENTARY VALLEY OF THE GIANT 49794

    The United States Army and the Mississippi River Commission explain the importance of the Mississippi River as a major trade waterway in “Valley of the Giant,” a black-and-white from the 1940s. A map (mark 00:55) shows the Mississippi River and its many outlets as the narrator explains its importance and its reach of over 1 million square miles, draining water from more than 30 states and two Canadian provinces. We listen to the slap of paddle wheels on the river (mark 03:17) and see large freighters and ocean vessels make their way through the water as the narrator continues to explain its importance to shipping, linking the Great Lakes to the Seven Seas. The film shows how the river can overflow its banks during a storm (mark 06:06) damaging the surrounding land and endangering life as we see the massive destruction of the delta that resulted from the 1927 flood (mark 07:37).

    Starting at mark 08:40, the film explores the Army Corps of Engineers’ methods of maintaining it as a safe navigational channel and also details how the Corps has built countless levees, dams, floodways and other protective barriers in order to prevent a reoccurrence of the flood. We learn how engineers in the 1930s straightened portions of the river (mark 14:46) between Memphis and Baton Rouge to allow a straighter flow…
