the war field

anonymous asked:

In plane field , how would a fight beetween roman legions and hellenistic phalanxes go ?

Well, I think Cynoscephalae and Beneventum are good examples of how that goes. Pyrrhus showed the Romans that the phalangite army was no small trifle, but to the Romans eternal credit (and one of the reasons why Rome lasted as long as they did) was that Rome learned from their mistakes.

Thanks for the question, Anon.

Those who can tap into the raw energy of the Fade and block the whispering temptations of demons are truly exceptional. When they turn that mental focus onto the field of war, they can be truly terrifying opponents. Rains of fire, walls of ice, or even the ability to heal allies make up a mage’s toolkit. Most employ considerable skills rendering foes not only weakened, but also vulnerable to physical attacks, setting up opportunities for their teammates to exploit.

Marie Curie:

After graduating from school at 15, she continued her education in Poland by going to underground classes (as women were not allowed to go to university) while she saved to go to Paris. Once she got there, she completed postgraduate degrees in both physics and maths in just 3 years and began her research into radioactive compounds, discovering 2 elements (radium and polonium), which were later used in treating diseases such as cancer through radiotherapy (something she literally created during the first world war for field hospitals, whilst at the same time running a platoon of mobile x-ray machines also for use on the front line).

She also won 2 Nobel Prizes (the first person and only woman to do so - she was also the first woman to ever win and the only person to ever win 2 prizes in different sciences).

I’m going to go and do my homework.

Jimmy Stewart and Burgess were close friends and even roommates circa 1940-41. Burgess staged a celebration at Mocambo in Hollywood for Jimmy after he returned home for a weekend leave from the war. This is a photo I found in the archives from that party. Franchot Tone, Lorraine Gettman, Frances Ford Seymour, Henry Fonda, Betty Field and Burgess.
