Fusil Semi-Automatique Mle1949/56

Made by the Manufacture d’Armes de St-Etienne post-WW2 until 1965 at a total of 295840 units, including an initial production of 20240 MAS 49.
7,5x54mm 1929C 10-round removable box magazine, gas-operated semi-automatic fire, built-in compensator/Nato 22mm grenade launcher with sights.

This rifle’s had a long and tortuous development, in major parts due to a little historical event you might have heard of. First of all it’s important to note that its action is in fact based on Rossignol’s B5 prototype rifle of the French military rifle trials in the early 1900′s. This is in fact the direct impingement system that would later be used not only in these MAS rifles but also in the American AR series.

The Rossignol B5 ENT-1901 rifle.

In 1938, with a war looming and thus in the very same circumstances that saw France try to modernize its arsenal around the turn of the century, the Manufacture d’Armes de St-Etienne started development of a new semi-automatic military rifle. The resulting weapon was the MAS 38/39 and MAS 40 prototypes, both featuring a 5-round fixed box magazine like the bolt action MAS 36, but making use of the Rossignol system.

About 60 working prototypes were made during the early days of WW2, before being adopted in March of 1940. Unfortunately much like the A6 Meunier in 1913, there were no time or resources to implement a new military rifle during a world war. With German occupation becoming unavoidable, workers at MAS hid the plans to the gun as well as its prototypes.
They did their job extremely well, to the point that Free French forces in their now liberated country had to reverse-engineer the MAS 40 without blueprints to resume production, leading to the creation of the MAS 44.

Less than 7000 Mle1944 were manufactured for use by French Marine Commandos in the later stages of WW2. This is the first iteration of the design to introduce a detachable box magazine holding ten rounds.
Following the end of the war and the rebuilding of the country’s infrastructure, the rifle was very lightly modified and rolled out for mass production as the MAS 49. It was supposed to see service with all branches of the French military but only ended up in the hands of soldiers fighting in the conflicts of the Decolonization era.

It was finally after these experiences in the Indochina war, the Suez canal crisis in Egypt and the start of the Algerian war that the MAS 49 was refined into the Mle1949/56, with an overall shortened and modernized exterior more fit of a battle rifle. Before that it still looked very much like the MAS 36 bolt action rifle, which is fine if you’re into hunchbacked Lebels.

with the times we live in now, i think it’s important to note that this: 

is entirely different from this: 

The first one is a religious symbol used in multiple religions such as Hinduism or Buddhism. 

The term “swastika” comes from the Sanskrit word “ स्वस्तिक” which is more accurately translated as “svastika.” It means a particularly lucky object. The symbol is as old as history:

The second picture is a symbol co-opted by the National Socialist German Workers’ Party - the Nazis. Hitler, choosing this symbol, stated, “As National Socialists, we see our program in our flag. In red, we see the social idea of the movement; in white, the nationalistic idea; in the swastika, the mission of the struggle for the victory of the Aryan man, and, by the same token, the victory of the idea of creative work.“

The main difference? The second one is tilted at a 45 degree angle and used in the common white circle on a red background. 

clarification: most swastikas in western society are probably used for neo-nazi purposes. however, it’d be unwise to dismiss the true origins of the swastika, which is one of peace.

Christians refuse to bake a gay couple a cake. (Which is in their legal right.) "OH MY GOD, these homophobic, right-winged bigots! Let's show them what for and boycott their business!" Afghani Muslim immigrant who pledged allegiance to ISIS and has shown open hatred to gays shoots up a nightclub. "You guys, he was just repressed and mentally unstable. :) And you're just using this as a way to show your islamophobia in the guise of caring about LGBT people."

Perfectly summed up their logic. Watching feminists and the LGBT defend Islam is no different from watching blacks defend the The Ku Klux Klan or Jews defend the National Socialist German Workers Party. It’s hilariously sad. They don’t even realize they’d be the first ones to get wiped out if Islam took over the US. Thankfully not all of us are obsessed with riddling ourselves with guilt and shame and we aren’t afraid to take on the problem and keep these idiots safe. As undeserving of it as they are.

Asians in Germany. Deutsch-Asiaten (German Asians) are German citizens of full or partial Asian descent. Asians have been present in Germany in small numbers since the 19th century and originate primarily from Vietnam, China, Thailand, India, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Sri Lanka, South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines. Although Germany’s official census data does not collect specific data on ethnicity or “race”, the number of people with an Asian “migrant background” is listed in the statistics. As of 2011, there were about 1,890,000 people in Germany who descended from Southeast Asians, East Asians, Central Asians or South Asians. These numbers do NOT include Western Asians such as Turks, Jews, Arabs or Iranians, but do contain groups like Afghans or ethnic Russians from Central Asian countries.  

The first mentioned Asians in Germany were Chinese. In 1822 two Cantonese-speaking seafarers came to Berlin. They were employed as stoker on the ships in Hamburg and Bremen. During the 19th and 20th century, plenty of seamen and students resided in Hamburg-St. Pauli, forming a Chinatown. In Western Germany, a lot of Vietnamese people arrived in the 1960s or 1970s as refugees from the Vietnam War with the USA. The comparatively larger Vietnamese community in former East Germany traces its origins to assistance agreements between the DDR and the North Vietnamese government, under which guest workers were brought to East Germany, where they soon made up the largest immigrant group and were provided with technical training. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, many stayed in Germany. Since the early ‘90s there has been an influx of Thai people, South Koreans, Indonesians, and Filipinos coming to Germany as nurses, au pairs (babysitters), and other employees. In addition, illegal “immigration” from Vietnam via Eastern Europe is increasing significantly in the Eastern states. There are far more Thai and Filipino women than men in Germany, while the reverse holds true for Chinese and Indians. The Vietnamese community which now forms the largest group of Asians in Germany has a more equal male-female ratio. According to the “Mikrozensus 2011” there were about 1.8 million people with an Asian migrant background living in Germany. Of those, about 600,000 were of Southeast Asian descent, primarily from Vietnam and Thailand. People of full or part-Asian origin as defined above now make up about 2% of the population. Xavier Naidoo and Sabrina Setlur are 2 famous Asians in the music business.

Stereotypes of (nearly) every Italian region

These are just stereotypes, not my personal opinion.
I wanna thank all those followers who sent me suggestions.

  • Abruzzo: They serve to their guests huge meals that could go on even the whole day. Earthquakes.
  • Aosta Valley: Don’t you mean France? Very smol. Mountains and snow.
  • Apulia: Nice cheerful people, they are less “southern” than the other southerners. They love dancing and partying and they take everything easy.
  • Basilicata: No one knows anything about Basilicata.
  • Calabria: Extremely stubborn and irritable people with a funny accent and no sense of humour / self-irony. Their food is really spicy such like ‘nduja.
  • Campania: People are really loud, expansive, flashy and chatty but also dishonest. They are thieves and horrible drivers, even worse than Romans (three/four on a motor-scooter, no one stops at the traffic light, stuff like that) and do not follow any rule. The women are very touchy and unfaithful. They have tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala.
  • Emilia-Romagna: Communists, hospitable people, good sellers and hard workers. The women are easy and curvy. They eat la piadeina and say “ ve’ ” too much at the end of . They are the only ones who know the difference between Emilia and Romagna. Bless prosciutti, grana and parmigiano.
  • Friuli-Venezia Giulia: See Veneto but less rude than people from Veneto.
  • Lazio: There are Rome and er colosseo. People there speak a mixture of their dialect and Italian. They are bumpkins/yokels or tamarri (naff).Those who belong to the second group are from Rome. They think they’re the best but are loud, messy, chaotic. They are chavs. Horrible drivers that invent the most creative ways to park their cars.
  • Liguria: Ligurians are really avaricious and rude to tourists (especially those who come from Milan). They are really jealous of their pesto and focaccia. Too many floods. You’ll find Genoa one of the best cities in Italy or one of the worst, there is no between. Abuse of the word “belin”. Beppe Grillo.
  • Lombardy: Everyone is snob, finicky and was born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Half of them consists Northern League’s supporters, the other half is very ashamed of the Northern League, those pretty likely are vegan and eat only biological food.They think they’re better than anybody else in Italy.
  • Marche: “Better a corpse in your house than a person from Marche at your door” is all I know.
  • Molise: No one knows nothing about Molise. Some say it’s not real.
  • Piedmont: Piedmont is a lot like France. People are really nice but often false and are avaricious (not as much as genoese people though). They eat a lot of polenta. Everyone works for FIAT or is a farmer or makes chocolate. Gianduiotti good gianduiotti. 
  • Sicily: All Sicilians are members of Mafia and they are obsessed with honour. Men are really jealous and possessive and have. Sicilians take it easy. Their meals go on for hours. They either are almost black or pale with blonde hair, no between. Weird relationship with guns and shotguns. Oranges 10/10.
  • Sardinia: Underdeveloped. Everyone speaks like Yoda. All Sardinians are sheeps or old sheperds who fuck sheeps. Sardinian dialect is in comprehensible. Wanna be independent but no one actually cares.
  • Trentino-South Tyrol: German wannabes, hard workers who speak German. Mountains and snow.
  • Tuscany: They have the sexiest accent and like to remind everyone that they have “invented” the Italian language. Many comedians are from there. They are arrogant and shambolic people and boot-lickers. Communists. So many blasphemies in the air.
  • Umbria: Smol, baci perugina and Don Matteo.
  • Veneto: Racist people, boozers, so many blasphemies. They are narrow-minded people and often speak only their dialect. Everyone supports Northern League. They assert they have invented the Spritz (so do people from Friuli). To them everyone who lives to the south of the Po is a terrone.

anonymous asked:

what does nazi mean in german? was it a word before wwII?

It’s actually derived from the German word Nationalsozialist (national socialist), the name for supporters of the National Socialist German Worker party. Since this party hasn’t been around before 1920 the word N*azi hasn’t either. 

Some argue that since there isn’t a National Socialist German Worker party anymore and neither is the Third Reich you can’t really call people N*azi (hence the use of the term neo-N*azi). But since there are certain (political) beliefs connected to Nazism and some people these days share these beliefs I say that you can damn well call these people N*azis and you can damn well punch them in the face for it.
