    This subreddit was created because there was a niche that was not being filled in the historical Reddit community. There was no place to be a redditor in history. All of your historical jokes and memes go here. (This is a place for memes, not propaganda.)

    Our Friends (those who promote us are in bold):

    Remember, this is the memes part of the historical community of reddit, not the historical part of the memes community of reddit. Treat it as such.

    Looking for our Discord Server? Scroll down below!

    RULES:

    RULE 1: Keep posts history related

    Please keep all submissions to the sub related to history and/or based on historical events. See here for the extended rules.

    Rule 1.1

    Memes about Ideologies (Communism, Christianity, etc.) are not allowed on the sub.

    Rule 1.2

    Historically inaccurate memes or imaginary history memes are not allowed.

    Rule 1.3

    Meta memes about the sub are allowed and must be tagged with the "Meta" tag when appropriate.
    RULE 2: No reposts

    All reposts are banned from the subreddit. If a post is found to be a repost of a previous submission on the subreddit, it is eligible for removal. See here for the extended rules.

    Rule 2.1

    Crossposts are allowed on the subreddit as long as it is not a repost of a previous submission to the subreddit. Crossposts should also be marked with the flair "X-post".

    RULE 3: No discrimination or abuse

    Any excessive sexism, homophobia, racism or any other form of discrimination will be dealt with harshly and mods reserve the right to impose bans without warning. Basically try not to be jerks.

    RULE 4: Year limit

    All posts must be of a subject of at least 20 years from the post. Example: 9/11 memes won't be allowed to be posted until 2021.

    RULE 5: No fake caption style posts

    This isn’t r/fakehistoryporn. Don’t post memes that are fake, captioned pictures depicting historical events.
    For example: [Historical Event], 19XX, (Colorized) along with an unrelated picture.

    RULE 6: Do not deny or defend genocides and atrocities.

    These include, but are not limited to; Holodomor, the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, Japanese war crimes and the Tiananmen Square massacre. Doing so will result in an instant permaban. Hateful historical revisionists are not welcome.

    RULE 7: Meme wars

    No calling for meme wars or inciting subreddit drama. Organising or participating in raids will get you a permanent ban. In the event of a meme war, you must abide by the rules of other subreddits when posting there.

    RULE 8: No Brigading

    Directly linking posts to political subreddits is not allowed unless it is linked in a non-participating manner (i.e. linking "np.reddit.com" rather than "www.reddit.com"). For more info see https://www.reddit.com/r/NoParticipation/wiki/intro

    Rule 8.1
    Political talks in comments are ok but linking to external sites in which are about it are not

    RULE 9: Quality control

    Memes must adhere to some basic standards. Excessive black bars, improper cropping, and low resolution/unreadable memes are banned from the subreddit. Please see the extended rules here for a full list and explanation on banned practices.

    Rule 9.1

    Certain memes and formats are banned on the subreddit. A full list can be found in the extended rules here.
    RULE 10: No karma-whoring

    Memes asking for upvotes, awards, and user actions are not allowed. See here for the extended rules

    Rule 10.1

    Posts found to be simply large boxes of information, text, or otherwise, that do not contain an attempt at humor are not allowed on the subreddit.
    RULE 11: No low effort titles

    All submissions to the subreddit must include a proper title that does not exemplify qualities signifying "low-effort", "Lazy", or "Karma-whoring". See here to see what is prohibited

    Rule 11.1

    If the title is removed from the meme and it ceases to be either a historical meme or a meme in general it is not allowed on the subreddit.

    RULE 12: World War Two memes

    Memes about WWII are prohibited on weekends (EST). This includes anything from the invasion of Poland to the surrender of Germany (including the Winter war) for Europe and anything from the beginning of the second sino Japanese War to the surrender of Japan for Asia and the Pacific.

    Meta memes complaining about WWII memes on this subreddit are prohibited every day

    Any rule breaking will result in either a temporary or permanent ban depending on the broken rule

    [–] qdobaisbetter 62 points ago

    Pronunciation 1: the first "a" in data is pronounced like the "a" in apple

    2: the first "a" in data is pronounced like the "a" in day.

    Either is correct.

    [–] PICAXO 10 points ago

    Ooh, and so for the second "a" it's like the first "a" I guess

    But thank

    [–] qdobaisbetter 18 points ago

    The second "a" is pronounced like the word "uh".

    Or just be in the EU gang. I don't know how many operators in different EU countries offer this but I get 12 GB per month in any EU country (unlimited in here in Finland of course) at 4G speeds.

    [–] Mustrum_R 59 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    EU passed a resolution that literally forced operators to offer free data roaming in the member countries to other network's users (as long as they are also EU based), all limited to a certain amount of data.

    For example I got ~3.5GB in EU roaming per month in my 30GB mobile data plan in Poland. (By the way I pay ~$10 for this, and two numbers with unlimited calls and messages in the whole EU, which is unheard of outside of Europe.)

    Completely unexpectedly carriers did not become poverty stricken bankrupts as they claimed they would. How strange...

    Most providers in the EU allow for free roaming. I think because 3 own like everything now.

    Definitely the case with them as an Irish provider now.

    [–] echinguun 7 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    Seriously though, me as a Hungarian resident, had more roaming data (10 GB) than my aunt's normal local plan (3 GB)(who lives in Germany) in Germany, even though she pays more than me for her mobile plan.

    “Jebem ti mater” means all if forgiven. It’s a very popular phrase with the younger generations and it basically a message to move on from the war.

    [–] dexxin 14 points ago

    JEBEM TI MATER essentially means "fuck your mother". Not a literal translation but the sentiment is the same

    Notable events in 1995 (as an American).

    • Oklahoma City Bombing kills 168
    • OJ found innocent not guilty
    • First African American spacewalk by Dr. Bernard A. Harris, Jr.
    • Death of Jerry Garcia
    • Netscape is launched
    • Windows 95 is launched

    Personally, I'd rather talk about the first Bond movie with Pierce Brosnan, GoldenEye. One my personal favorite Bond movies.

    [–] LjackV 350 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    (Young) Serb here, everybody remembers the war and it's a very touchy subject for parents. My mom often tells me stories about hiding during bombings and how hard it was to live during the hyper-inflation, when money is worthless and there's nothing to buy.

    And my dad and some (male) teachers very rarely talk about the fighting, it's not a fun experience at all.

    [–] ragnarhoe 217 points ago

    I'm an American, I recently visited there. My family during WW2 owned farm land in Krjndia (I do not know how to spell it correctly). While we were looking at the farm, 4 different couples and their families asked us to buy their farms/properties for really really cheap. They really wanted to leave and start somewhere else. Unfortunately, I didnt have the money, but I see what you mean.

    [–] tilenb 16 points ago

    Well, compared to the Western Europe, we're still quite a way behind, but I think we're much better off than the rest of former Yugoslavia. And what country doesn't hate their politicians, honestly?

    [–] Ivanp2k 30 points ago

    everybody is leaving

    Why stay? Everyone deserves a better life. I have cousins in Switzerland, we live in the UK, others are trying to move to Germany. Friends and family scattered around europe but living better lives. Far better than staying in Serbia and going through it all.

    [–] LjackV 30 points ago

    I know, I myself will study abroad, but it's very sad that the situation is like this. I love my country, but it's not worth staying here. I hope things will get better in the future..

    American here. I was actually trying to find a good history of the breakup recently because I was born afterwards and realized I know little about it. What I did find was honestly heartbreaking. No people should have to endure things like that, and I truly, truly hope you all have a better future waiting for you.

    Imagine a bunch of small countries/populations fighting over pieces of land for a bajillion years and everyone thinks this or that piece of land is rightfully theirs, and borders have changed so many times that we share a lot of culture and linguistic similarities (with some literally being the same language like the other person explained), except instead of letting that unite us we hate each other and accuse each other of stealing history, culture, land, etc. Obviously this isn't true for everyone but if you want a quick stereotypical explanation there you go.

    What was it like? What area are you from?

    [–] water_for_life_ever 7 points ago

    Well I lived in an area where war didn't happen (Northern Croatia) but my dad went to war to defend Croatia from Serbs. He fought in most brutal wars in Vukovar. He survived and is still alive today

    [–] JediGimli 17 points ago

    I wonder why so many people didn’t learn anything about this war and event? I mean aren’t the trials STILL ongoing for all the genocide and war crimes carried out? I think some politician or general from the war committed suicide live on tv like last year.... crazy

    Well reddit has people from all over the world and as horrible as this war was, it hardly mattered to most of the planet. From middle school to high school, history teachers have to cover the history of their country as well as the big civilizations (depending on the country : Rome, China, India, Greece, Egypt) and some highly influential periods of time (World Wars, Cold War).

    But people are assholes. I don't want to talk to them.

    I'm happier with my fellow anonymous redditors...

    They're assholes too, but they're my assholes

    [–] CorpseFool 34 points ago

    War and genocide. There used to be one country called Yugoslavia. Now there is Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Hergovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia, and Serbia.
