ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS- Seeing as how some fuckers just treat us as storage alts thinking “Nah, they’ll hold the loot forever!”, the former Chief of Staff cyclone_43 of the Spookyfest 2017 Coalition has warned those who have not picked up their Spookyfest loot by the End of November will have their items confiscated by the UTC.
So pick it up you lazy bums. We ARE NOT YOUR storage alts.
Irishkaiser - When people quote studies or when people refer to a graph and it looks all scientific, they like to just believe in it because it looks professional. I never realized just how they form up a lot of common misconceptions and are just accepted as “facts” until recently in my life. It really hit me when I saw a picture of obvious bullshit that everyone seems to just accept. A global map of Lactose Intolerance:
I already know that my own countrymen consume dairy products everyday. Cheese and milk products are a staple of what we would consider a “feast” but somehow we’re listed as lactose intolerant? I eat and drink milk products A LOT. I love it. I barely know any native countryman that chafes about taking milk and in fact, I know zero Filipinos personally in real life who are lactose intolerant. The only complaint from the non-milk drinkers is most probably milk is just boring to them and most are willing to drink it only because they’re told it’s part of a “healthy diet”(which I will debunk as well later).
Then there is the issue of Brazil in that map. The South of Brazil is hugely populated by people of German descent, the same people who came from a country that is apparently… In that map… NOT LACTOSE INTOLERANT. Amazing.
Argentina as well has huge European populations oh and… The Falkland Islands off the coast of Argentina… POPULATED MOSTLY BY PEOPLE OF BRITISH DESCENT… ARE LACTOSE INTOLERANT? VAS?
I also find it difficult to believe the Middle East-Indian subcontinent area has high rates of lactose intolerance..? Vas? The lands where the term MILK AND HONEY combination came from has high rates of lactose intolerance? Are you kidding me? The Turkic peoples themselves subsisted on horse’s milk. Are you joking.
I looked it up on the internet and apparently, a lot of people believe the same damn thing. I find it ironic I know more Dutch and American people who openly complain about being Lactose Intolerant saying it will literally kill them than I do most of my Oriental brethren but everyone and the scientific community says otherwise..? Something probably went wrong with the testing.
This map of Lactose Intolerance is not the only example of a lie taken as scientific fact. The most common lie everyone believed and taught in schools was the FOOD PYRAMID - taught to each and every child and passed on. It was later discovered that “Hey, that wasn’t really exactly the ideal.”.
Then I think there’s also the myth of dairy products making people grow taller. I personally think that’s a myth. When asked, people say it’s the calcium in the milk. Why aren’t seafood heavy countries the tallest? Don’t they get more calcium per day from a seafood heavy diet? How come they’re not surprisingly tall?
Don’t people ever find it… WEIRD that people who probably have more fish everyday than they do milk aren’t as tall? I think dairy making people grow taller was a marketing scheme like a ploughman’s lunch being sold as “old timey food” when it was only concocted in the 50s . However, that marketing scheme also had some link or basis such as calcium content in milk and connected it with bone growth. I think that it does make bones stronger, but taller? If you were genetically designed to a certain height, I don’t think your bones would go against their programming and just maybe make what you have healthier.
I’ve seen certain growth formulas and vitamins work, but those are drugs that are designed to stimulate bone lengthening and drugs do affect parts of your body.
I’d like to know your opinions and what you believe to be true. Are Oriental peoples more prone to lactose intolerance or do you know more European peoples who are lactose intolerance?

A very eventful trade run that started off with a fight North where the caravan encountered and destroyed elements of a premium group that hopped on. The captured equipment was quickly absorbed by the caravan to include other pieces of armor and or weapons to sell. The premiums that were encountered were respectful and preferred to buy back their equipment when the Company went South.
As the caravan covered Grimdale, the premium group re-acquired some of their equipment but of course not all of them, as their leftover equipment had to be absorbed and or abandoned. Other local leathers acquired equipment from the UTC stationed at Grimdale as well. Following the caravan closely, the premium group now joined by their other compatriots were only kept at bay as a game of maneuver was being played out with both sides seeking to ensure a superiority of striking power. This went on until Portsmouth where the Caravan was rejoined with Northern reinforcements to tip the balance of power directly into the UTC’s favor. A stroke of fortune as Discord went down for most, with the exception of the UTC force(sans one member) which delayed any proper communication between the premium group from having to strike early and giving the UTC time to organize contingencies and a defense.
During this time, Irishkaiser called on for extra reinforcements and cyclone_43 set up a redundant communication backup and to re-establish communications with the UTC member that disconnected.
Before the big fight broke out, the Company preferably sold equipment to nearby friendlies who were familiar with the UTC and would undoubtedly assist them in any ensuing fight.
The premium group, wanting to just bandit, thought that incoming geared UTC reinforcements were not UTC and understandably thought they were “fair game”. This gross miscalculation provided the needed excuse for the UTC to break out and start killing the premiums and ending their threat for good.
Incoming third party premiums and or leathers came in and helped cause more confusion for the enemy as UTC forces maintained communication, they were able to tell who was with who. Equipment was rescued from fallen friendlies and members were told to rally to Irishkaiser.
Some douchebag called Dynath also thought we didn’t know who he was - an obvious premium alt. He kept at it but UTC combat power was overwhelming at this point, so it didn’t matter for the most part. Plenty of other obvious premiums thought they could trick us with certain other alts but were very miserable when they tried.
Company Forces rallied North with surviving friendlies and told dead friendlies to meet them at other locations to give back their stuff.
It is to be noted that Taiga is a moron when it came to formations and could not follow orders properly or wasn’t instructed properly on the meaning of intent for most other orders, as orders had to be repeated multiple times to him with exact explanation on what to do.
The one that really grinded my gears was Taiga’s squirming at a time when Company forces adopted a Square Formation. That nigga just moved around individuals sneaking trying to protect himself when the purpose of a square was to protect each other. IN MY EYES, HE LOOKED LIKE A BITCH READY TO BE FUCKED. ANIME SKIN DIDN’T HELP HIM TOO. Other than that, everything else seemed to go smoothly.
Most of the regimentals who made up the entirety of Light Infantry seem to want to hold on to their equipment and preferred to keep chain sets, iron swords and other gear above leather-stone when they see them. It had to be explained that it is discouraged to picking these up because it would provide the enemy with weapons to fight back if they fell, which is highly likely since Light Infantry has intentional high mortality rates. Do your duty in your proper role and I will compensate you handsomely, gentlemen. You want 12-15 Splash IIs and an iron armor set? No problem. So as long as you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours. When I want Light Infantry, I mean I really want Light Infantry. Not this hodge podge of iron-chain armor without any potions and only given with a stone sword.

Whatevuh. Kaiser Arsenal. No Golden Apples. Just 12 Splash IIs.
I heard I was appointed to drill the 93rd regiment in fighting and formations, but that it was cancelled. So close yet so far.
The 1st Regiment deployed its 2nd Carrier to support Company operations in the Emerald Sea.
Seeing the strategic(let’s be honest though they only see the tactical) potential of the Carrier, the 501st decided to adopt its own Carrier design to augment its combat power. It is not yet decided what Zone of Responsibility the 501st shall choose as most likely, in the prediction of Irishkaiser, an expert on 501st studies in the University of Hitler Did Nothing Wrong that..
“Most likely it’ll be used as some kind technical or whatever real poor armies use for striking power. Imagine a bunch of blacks armed with AKs on the back of a Toyota. That’s how they’ll use it. They won’t have a zone of responsibility. They’ll just take it wherever.”
Irishkaiser reminded Cyclone with the Rudyard Kipling poem Recessional
For ^heathen ^heart ^that ^puts ^her ^trust
^In ^reeking ^tube ^and ^iron ^shard,
^All ^valiant ^dust ^that ^builds ^on ^dust,
But Cyclone didn’t read. Regardless, Kaiser Arsenal was given the contract to produce and supply the Carriers. However, the design for the Carrier’s own hull will be suited to the needs of the 501st.
The Bank of the Unknown [?] Clan, though it has finally opened to setting up bank accounts turned away most investors or at the very least warned them of what they were getting into, insisting that they think real hard before deploying their money. A small snippet of the conversation below:
**Spyware - Last Saturday at 3:44 PM** Yeah but let's say in your paypal **ArgoArcher - Last Saturday at 3:44 PM** In case you take a hit or something Alright **Spyware - Last Saturday at 3:44 PM** I can't be assed Or bothered So I convert it to dollars, right? Cause I don't give a shit **ArgoArcher - Last Saturday at 3:44 PM** Alright **Spyware - Last Saturday at 3:44 PM** And it becomes 97 dollars **ArgoArcher - Last Saturday at 3:45 PM** So I just take a 3 dollar hit? **Spyware - Last Saturday at 3:45 PM** Then I send it Again It becomes 95 That's just an example
The main concerns were transaction fees and currency conversion costs. Wanting to get 100USD would result result in getting less money than what was asked for.
Someone who sets up a bank account with the Bank of the Unknown [?] Clan must be fully aware as well that due to being small, the Clan Bank may freeze someone’s assets for reasons such as needing that money to be recovered or that the current bank operator is away/AFK, or even that someone’s cash is currently deployed in an investment that is maybe physical(setting up a business venture) or abstract(shares). Basically, it would be a hassle to get your money back unless you’re willing to wait quite awhile to gain enough interest to get a nice tidy profit in your return.
It is not recommended unless you knowingly would wait for a long time because your money, being transferred overseas will take forever to be re-acquired. Especially if you use PayPal as the Clan Bank would put all charges of transfer and conversion fees on you.
Any willing investors must be sure that they won’t need their money back for quite a long time. At least, long enough that maybe they’ll break even when they take it back.
- FINANCE PAY-GRADE ABOLISHED. REWARDS IN PLACE.
Due to concerns mostly about working for money, instead of the heart, ideals, king and country what not tally ho pip pip - pay grades have been abolished and the Bank of the Unknown [?] Clan is only willing to give money on individuals who have been deemed worthy of monetary compensation for efforts.
People might fuck each other over for money. Oh and transaction fees. We really hate transaction fees as well. The Bank of the Unknown [?] Clan has deemed that people in MineZ that make up the majority of the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company are too immature to respect funds or the system of welfare established by its mother organization: the Unknown [?] Clan.
