re: Did the British Empire have a net positive effect on the world? - DavidTheGnome

Hagia Sophia and Istanbul needs to be called Constantinople - DavidTheGnome
The minarets need to be removed, the building is perfect and doesn’t need those spikes added on the corners. I can’t imagine what it would be like to walk into such a space in the 500s and see something so incredible. [link=(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hagia_Sophia)]LINK[/link] The Hagia ...

The importance of the Brits adding the train system in a lot of these countries, especially India, can’t be overstated enough. It played a key role in their development economically as well as socially. The partition of Indian into Pakistan for example. ...

re: Did the British Empire have a net positive effect on the world? - DavidTheGnome
The difference in the British and Spanish approach to colonization would be an interesting topic as well. I wonder if the British did something right that the Spanish didn’t and that’s why they burned out. Spain had such a huge start and very well could have been what the British Empire was. What ha...

re: Did the British Empire have a net positive effect on the world? - DavidTheGnome
Which raises another question, do you think the European countries losing control of their colonies has been a good thing for the world?

Did the British Empire have a net positive effect on the world? - DavidTheGnome

re: OT opinion, Foxy Di vs Krystal Boyd NSFW - DavidTheGnome
Agreed. She was top tier in her profession and it’s interesting she chose that pursuit rather than just banging an oligarch which would have paid much more. [img]https://i.pinimg.com/originals/74/e5/50/74e5501cf7df686d013fb6f8ed3ea1f6.jpg[/img]...
