Message found among the personal effects of Joseph Stalin

To Joseph Stalin: Stop sending people to kill me! We've already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle... If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send a very fast working one to Moscow and I certainly won't have to send another.
- Josip Broz Tito

Of Hadrian | Of Antoninus Pius

"It's worth keeping in mind how Google Translate works, because it helps you understand why it is so bad at Latin in particular. Google translate basically looks for websites that have texts in two different languages and statistically compares all of them to determine what is statistically the most likely to be the given translation for sentences. This used to be how it did all languages, but it has been changing to neural networks over the last two years for many of them, but I believe Latin still uses the old method.

"The thing about the old method was that it kind of worked all right for a lot of modern languages. Think about English and Spanish. There are lots of websites, government documents, etc, that are available in both languages, so it has a lot of good data to compare. In particular, it has data where accuracy and equivalency is often of the utmost importance, concerning texts written in a broad range of styles, from the simplest to the most complicated styles.

"Now think about the situation for Latin."

Australia's Forgotten Islands (2018)

"A documentary chronicling the Cocos (Keeling) Islands - where Muslims outnumber Christians by more than five to one, and the Southern Cross and the Islamic crescent moon sit side by side on the islands’ flag. As Australian strategists eye up the value of the Cocos as a military outpost, the locals are forced to confront that their lives are in the hands of a government almost 6000kms away in Canberra, and they are part of a country that barely even knows they exist. The Cocos Islanders respond by formulating a plan that will ensure they have a voice in determining the future of their homeland. All it requires is for the man who expected to become the next ‘King of the Cocos’ to collaborate closely with the Malay people that his ancestors treated as virtually like slaves. What could possibly go wrong?"

Injury at track level

"Oddly enough, I was bored and sweating at College station today. Everything seemed sticky. The bottle of Selection Diet Ginger Ale I bought at the nearby Metro was sweaty, and sticky. I was sticky. The only thing that wasn't sticky were the stairs, they were just crusty. My phone just got a recent software update, and it was vibrating in my pocket as soon as there was no cell signal. Useless. In a fit of boredom I glanced at the payphone nearby... "

Terror! Robespierre and the French Revolution (2009)

"In 1794, French revolutionary Maximilien Robespierre produced the world's first defense of 'state terror' - claiming that the road to virtue lay through political violence. This film combines drama, archive and documentary interviews to examine Robespierre's year in charge of the Committee of Public Safety - the powerful state machine at the heart of Revolutionary France. Contesting Robespierre's legacy are Slavoj Žižek, who argues that terror in the cause of virtue is justifiable, and Simon Schama, who believes the road from Robespierre ran straight to the gulag and the 20th-century concentration camp."
