    Fortunately, due to the complicated 100-200 years, the chances of another mini-union alike Visegrad group or Benelux on the Balkans is literally impossible.

    Election results:

    Blue is right wing, red is left wing, so mind that

    EDIT: I should also specify that left wing is socialist and social democratic. Liberalism is mostly right wing, but frankly on both parts of the devide.

    Pigmentation of Europeans during the last 8000 years:

    Spoiler :



    So Western European hunter-gatherers were dark-skinned with blue eyes. Which is a confirmation of findings from the previous study on this subject.

    But this one also confirms that the further increase in light skin during the Late neolithic / Bronze age can be attributed to light-skinned Steppe immigrants:

    "R1 populations spread genes for light skin, blond hair and red hair":

    http://www.eupedia.com/europe/Haplogroup_R1a_Y-DNA.shtml#pigmentation

    "Light skin was spread by the Indo-Europeans (R1a + R1b haplogroups)":

    http://www.eupedia.com/forum/thread...ne-was-spread-by-the-Indo-Europeans-(R1a-R1b)

    ================================

    Hair pigmentation and Y-DNA of people from three Indo-Iranian Steppe cultures (Andronovo + Tachtyk + Tagar cultures):

    Hair pigmentation, when known (10 individuals):

    blond or light brown - 60% (6 individuals)
    brown hair - 30% (3 individuals)
    dark brown hair - 10% (1 individual)

    Y-DNA haplogroup, when known (10 individuals):

    R1a1a - 90% (9 individuals)
    C (not C3) - 10% (1 individual) -----> individual with C had dark brown hair

    Sources: http://www.ancestraljourneys.org/adnaintro.shtml

    Tachtyk: http://s28.postimg.org/yk0dq7659/Tachtyk.png

    Andronovo: http://s2.postimg.org/kz2vhilpl/Andronovo.png

    Tagar: http://s23.postimg.org/fc9z8n1kr/Tagar.png

    ======================================

    Immigration from the Steppe is also what made Europeans taller, according to this new paper.

    Proto-Indo-Europeans of the Yamna culture were much taller than Neolitihic Europeans:

    http://biorxiv.org/content/biorxiv/early/2015/03/13/016477.full.pdf

    You may also google the following (or a similar) phrase: "Yamna culture men face reconstructions" / "Yamna culture man".

    And you will find out that those ancient Steppe people looked just liked many modern Europeans, especially northern Europeans.

    Which isn't surprising in the light of new findings (link) that they contributed a significant % of ancestry to modern Europeans.

    Some of you might know that I was a part of the 80s/90s/beyond "art scene", which produced ASCII and ANSI art, was connected to the demo scene, and other such scenes (lit scene, etc.). I was in particular a guy who was known for making interesting fonts.. and the thing about fontists was that we weren't respected as much - we were pretty much the bassists of the art scene..

    But either way, during this time I also organized a scene-spanning contest called the Blender. The Blender was the brainchild of my friend Hennifer. Hennifer was an amazing artist, unlike me, but couldn't draw fonts worth crap. So we made a pretty good team. Anyway, he asked me to host blender, and a lot of people in the scene already knew who I was, and they definitely knew who he was, so a lot of people ended showing up. And I sort of ran this thing for a couple years during the heydays of the art scene. All sorts of people contributed - ANSI artists, ASCII artists, musicians, people made demos, coded games, wrote poetry, stories, animations, RIP format art, "hi-rez" style art.. even maybe batch files. Each artist in the scene was affiliated with one group or another - so groups got points each week, and I kept adding them up.

    In any case, each week I put together an infofile with the winners, etc. and compiled statistics about the competition with very detailed information. I am not quite sure why I did this, but I think it belongs here.

    The first list is winners of the week - up to week 41.. and other totals. See if you can spot anyone you know on this list! Maybe an uncle? edit: it's slightly longer so I'll hide it

    Spoiler :




    Blender is actually being brought back for one last time - I've been asked to co-host, by a crazy guy from British Columbia.. He used to run the lit group MIST - which wrote a LOT of stuff. They were very creative people, but a bit eccentric. So now he's coming to me asking me to co-host this, which is eccentric, but I'm totally doing it. He's also informed me that aa Blender inspired a competition has sprung up elsewhere.

    Here's the info file from the very first blender, if you're interested

    My town had legal public drinking until a couple years ago. Everyone assumed it was on the books, and when news spread that it wasn't when it was discovered, it only took a year to ban it.

    I'm assuming he was estimating based on all bars being the same size, i.e. 25%. It's quite likely that there are exactly 4 data points in this case, as the probability of getting an equal split gets smaller and smaller the more data points you have.

    And according to the wikipedia article, there are indeed 4 post/apocalypse novels in the whole of the 1900s decade.

    Do you have a source for this? I.e. where/how was the data on gender split collected?

    I was surprised to see Carling as the most popular selling beverage in the UK.

    My research indicates that this is sadly true.

    I'm feeling very, very depressed now. :(

    I fyou ever come to Germany, don't drink this. It's just one of the cheapest ways to get drunk if you don't care about the taste.

    Yeah, that map is basically a list of "beers you should never drink"

    Then again France's top beer is one I quite like.
