    Perhaps not the Mark I - V... but the Mark VI? It's a superior model.

    [–] Dang, the Timberwolves can now trot out a lineup including Luol Deng, Gorgui Dieng, and Deng Adel. fuckin_wot_m8 2 points ago in nba

    Yes, it depends on which tribe they come from (the Dinka and Nuer are the two biggest, and the two that are currently on opposite sides of the civil war), but yes, it was like that exactly, except everyone has 3 names and it goes back to their grandfather. I worked in Somalia for a while too, and it was the same. For example if one of my staff’s names was Mohamed Abdi Gabow, then that is: Given Name, Father’s Name, Grandfather’s Name in that order.

    I lived in South Sudan working for the UN for several years -- including in Wau, the town where Luol Deng was born. Lots and lots and lots of Dengs, Diengs, Dings, and Dongs. There is a town called Ding Ding. One of my staff was named Gatmai Dong. The list goes on.

    [–] Constantinople in the 13th C. by French Artist Antoine Helbert fuckin_wot_m8 5 points ago in MapPorn

    Actually the photo was taken in the 12th century using primitive drone technology, but then in the 13th century during a brief hipster period of artwork, an artist created this painting from the photo. Only this painting survives sadly.

    [–] Constantinople in the 13th C. by French Artist Antoine Helbert fuckin_wot_m8 -5 points ago in MapPorn

    The name was changed. In fact it changed 3 times! In antiquity it was named Byzantium, then when the Roman empire moved its capital there in 330 AD it was changed to Constantinople (because it was the Emperor Constantine who moved the capital to there), and then when the Turks conquered it in 1453 AD it was changed to Istanbul. So it's actually 3 different names!

    There is some debate over where the name Istanbul originates from. The book "1453" by Roger Crowley, as well as John Julius Norwich's series of books on the city can shed some light on this debate. I'm sure there are more scholarly books too but I don't know them. :)

    [–] Visualizing NBA 3 Point Shooters fuckin_wot_m8 2 points ago in nba

    I rarely post in r/nba although I lurk a lot. I just wanted to say that this was a fascinating post to read, OP. :) I sometimes shake my head at the amount of hard work that goes into these posts only to be stolen by some sports website. I don't know why you do it, but I appreciate the heck out of you for it. :)

    [–] Towers of Dubai breaking through the clouds fuckin_wot_m8 0 points ago in interestingasfuck

    It's about half-half. I just had dinner last night with a female friend who was in town from Dubai actually. Have you been to the Gulf or the Middle East?

    [–] Towers of Dubai breaking through the clouds fuckin_wot_m8 -6 points ago in interestingasfuck

    It's not just ultra-wealthy. Lots of my friends and colleagues work or have worked in the Gulf. It's a fun place to be in your 20s and 30s as well.
