    [–] Why did England try to invade Scotland so many times throughout history ? ( reasons behind England's desire to invade Scotland and expand ) FriendoftheDork 1 points ago in history

    As a society it's not too bad, but as a population it is. Climate change was probably a main factor in wiping them out. There is no proof of genocidal Inuits, but it's not impossible either.

    I honestly don't know of any wars between Catholic Icelanders and protestant Danish/Norwegians. The Danish king just said "ya'll protestants now" (if the Danish king was a casual Texan dude. There was a battle involving about 200 men total)

    Yeah the end kind of ruins after a google search about that battle.

    One the plus side though, soldiers wear gambesons and riveted mail, so that's something. And the battle tactics involved was somewhat accurate.

    The only specified requirement is flechette ammo, but without a choke setting you can't benefit from the medium or wide spread tables, which makes it almost the same as Enhanced Suppression anyway.

    For actual full-auto shotguns it is heavily implied that the medium/wide tables apply to the actual suppression attack ("virtually unavoidable"), but sure they could have made it clearer of course.

    In everyday speech it might be used interchangeably, but they have seperate meanings: https://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/cemetery-versus-graveyard

    So now you can start using the right words and feel superior to everyone else :P

    Not that common compared to cemeteries I meant. It makes sense that the older European-style cities have them though.

    [–] How to make a simple jig to accurately set up a fence for your router FriendoftheDork 0 points ago in DIY

    I'm also confused on how dancing a Jig is going to help with anything. Actually I still don't understand anything about what that thing is for.

    Cemeteries are burial sites, graveyards are burial sites next to churches. I get the impression that graveyards are not that common in the US.

    Are you mixing up Suppressive fire with full automatic burst? The penalty to defense from bursts do not apply to suppressive fire, and suppressive fire uses 20 rounds. Where are you getting the -8 from?

    Yeah especially the price. I can picture star wars esque flying armored troop ships, but how smugglers struggling to get by can afford them or even earn enough to pay them off is beyond me. That's like starting a smuggling operation today with bought F-35s if you assume it had any carrying capacity.
