2.  The Mayweather vs. MacGregor boxing match appeared to be successful - where you able to fight anyone in a no holds barred match, who would you like the opportunity to punch most? Why?

I'd fight with some Antifa militant. Fuck them anarcho-socialists

i guess i should also give a question?

3. what is your top 3 mechas!

I've never been a connoisseur of those, as I prefer works set in past or something reminscent to past. That being said, I really love World of 1920+, presented in paintings of Jakub Różalski, which present a combination of rural life of Eastern Europe with Dieselpunk mechas and Polish-Soviet War I've presented you once in first page of my Polish History Thread. Maybe I should revive this thread.

https://www.artstation.com/jakubrozalski Here's his page

4. Which other planet in our solar system would make the best defense outpost to protect against the invaders? How would you equip this celestial body to serve as our first line of defense?

Only Mars. Mercury and Venus are too hot to build there anything, while rest of the planets are gas giants.

I'd build a fortress, with defense garrisons, spaceship bases, big kinetic cannons, laser guns and missiles able to reach Earth's orbit. Of course, storehouses would have enough food to last 5 years without any supplies, but the base would have munitions and small weapons factories and food farms. There would be several fortresses on the planet, connected with each other by net of underground tunnels.

Well, everything looks so nice and cool, but there's one problem - we're in space. Whatever fortifications we will build here or there, they can still be easily avoided. Also, planets move around Sun, and they move at diffrent speeds, so there might be a moment when Mars would be on the opposite side of the Sun than Earth. Therefore, there's no point in making one of the planets a fortress to protect the other ones - all planets should be able to defend by themselves.

5. Which kind of food describes you best, and why?
Bread.

Since dawn of the ages, it was with us, humans, the most basic form of processed food, the sign of functioning civilization. It was the result of people who worked in cooperation with each other. The farmer, who was taking care of his crops. The miller who processed said crops into flour by using his tools. The baker who used his knowledge and experience to form it into bread. And then many more. The merchant, who sold it to the people who couldn't grow crops on their lands. The captain who commanded the ship that merchant travelled on. The sailors who operated the ship. The soldiers who protected all of them, risking their lives. And the rulers who administrated them all.

Whenever it was lacking, civilization died. Savagery and primitive instincts took its' place. People were eating roots from the ground, rats, dogs, cats, they reverted to canibalism, eating bodies of their own dead relatives, or they just died on the streets from hunger. It was a result of someone's failure. The farmer failed to protect their crops. The ruler led their nation to a ruin. But most often, soldier failed to protect his brethren.

So let us be whoever we want. Let us argue with each other over the silliest of things. But let us remember that we are all one. And should the darkest hour come, let us unite under one banner! No matter who we are and what we believe, let us stand arm to an arm! And fight to death, theirs or ours, for our bread, for our families, for our neighbours, for our nation, FOR OUR FREEDOM! BROTHERS AND SISTERS!! WILL YOU STAND TOGETHER WITH ME?!

There's literally no story to it at all, I just found it somewhere on the internet, I thought it was funny and put it as my avatar here and on Steam.

7. As a history buff, I can appreciate your efforts in explaining Polish history to some of us who arent as famillar. Is there another time period or type of history you are into?

8. As a Virginian, a military service member, and someone who had ancestors on both sides of the American Civil War, I find your interest and participation in 61stVA  interesting. What lead you to joining and getting involved? What other games are you regularly active in?

Well, my favourite periods are "The Cavalier Years", which encompass more or less years 1610-1690 and Late Medieval, so more or less second XIV-XV century. I am also very interested in weapons and armour of those periods. I also have a soft spot for French Royal Musketeers and Scottish Highlanders.

Edit: Well, I am also a member of reconstruction group. Our times are Early Medieval, about IX-X century

8. As a Virginian, a military service member, and someone who had ancestors on both sides of the American Civil War, I find your interest and participation in 61stVA  interesting. What lead you to joining and getting involved? What other games are you regularly active in?

It's a long tale, so let's shorten it a bit.

I decided once to support one person on Mount & Blade, we became friends and one day he formed 61stVA. I signed on this project, mostly to see what's about this mod. Soon, we joined to Union Army, a group of regiments on North & South. He took control over entire brigade in the UA and I became his second in command, since he needed someone, who could speak English fluently, as his English is horrible, and I was the only person he could actually trust, since everyone else hates his guts after things he has done on Napoleonic Wars. At some point 61stVA fell into decline. This is when Koxxus ordered me to intervene. I lost my Brigade Captain rank and became Colonel of 61stVA. At the beginning, I hated this job. But then I just learnt to live with it, and then I hated myself for hating that job, since it led to some of the problems I have to deal with today. At some point, High Command of UA started to be fed up with Koxxus, or rather his long absence, so they decided to dispose him. He didn't like it at all. He gathered all reigments he could and left Union Army. he went to Dixie Army. And then he died again. He got back... 3 weeks ago? Something like that.

I play quite often on The Deluge mod, Day of Infamy, various TW titles and recently a lot of Hearts of Iron 4.

Fishing boat, map and book "150 techniques of masturbation".

10. What is your quest?
Either create a game on which I've been thinking about for a longer time, or become a politician.

Man, that was something.

Basicly there's a thing called "Euroweek" - volunteers from all around the world come to some shithole in Poland and hold workshops, lectures and shit like that. There were four schools on the Euroweek: our proud eagles from Surveyor Technical school, some fags from Lyceum nr 30 and them some kids from schools in some shitholes I had never heard of before, and you couldn't pronounce: that is, Polanica Zdrój and Ostrzeszów.

Spoiler

The town, or rather village, we stayed in was Kudowa Zdrój - a small location on a Czech-Polish border. We even met some Czechs when going to a market for snacks and drinks. Honestly, it was quite a good spot for one or two day stay, with termal waters and really good cafe, but if I was supposed to live there, then I'd prolly kill myself. We got there and came back via trains.

Spoiler

I landed in a room with some, well, annoying idiots that didn't even wash themselves. Fortunately, my teacher allowed me to move to room where my friends were, even if it meant sleeping on a matress on a floor. Hearing whom I landed with, and because they were my classmates, they accepted me.

There were like four volunteers: Tamara from Georgia, Stanislav from Ukraine, Angelo from Colombia and Melody from Philippines. Incredibly positive people, especially since they more or less treated us like equals and not like some stupid shitlings. Activities we've been doing were either workshops that forced us to work in a group, or we had lectures about countries that volunteers came from. Said lectures presented their countries in bit more positive light than they actually are, so if you wanted to learn about some nasty things then you'd either have to talk with them in person or just find it yourself. There were lot of dances, at least for a person like me who never dances. Being a volunteer on Euroweek is quite fun, according to one of volunteers from Italy that visited us once. In his words: "You get to meet amazing people, you fuck a lot, you party a lot, you drink a lot and you also have free food and accomodation". He was actually quite... disappointed? when we told him that our plans after school were either work, study, or both.

Spoiler

Alcohol was an interesting thing on that trip. Our school was one of the most liberal in that case, consindering we just fucking smuggled two crates of beer into our room. There was also whiskey, vodka and hooch that one of our guys made. The room next to us even smoked pot, to the point that once entire corridor on next floor smelled with it. When a teacher entered their room, she noticed it and asked about it, to which they responded "We're just making toasts". Lyceum didn't have that much luck. Their teachers were incredibly strict, constantly monitored them and at some point even fucking forbid them to meet with us, because we "drink too much alcohol". One girl almost got expelled form that school because of this trip. I've later learnt that this Lyceum is considered to be "elite" and "prestigious" so that might be the case. The two other schools were simply too young for such escapades, so there's nothing to talk about. In the end, we were the only ones who drunk together with volunteers, and I think I beat my record during the party that happened on last night. Luckly, I stopped soon enough to actually be able to come back on my own legs and not trip. Others didn't have that much luck. That being said, i woke up with a rather nasty hangover, topped with a cold that's holding to this day.

Overall, it was pretty fun. Too bad I got back at 9PM to my home, and next day had to do professional exam, which I sadly fucked up. Anyway, let me send you one song I've heard on lecture about Ukraine:
