do you actually google any of your arguments to dobule check them?

Ronin: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C5%8Dnin
Japanese armour: www.pinterest.com/pin/499477414900108694/ (adopted by all in 15th century , but used even in 11th)

Samurai armour wasn't entirely steel nor was it covering the entire body unless you're speaking of the very early periods.

At this point you're just nitpicking my responses and looking for any sort of miniscule mistake. Which you're likely going to find, considering I've barely slept for past 3 days and instead spent most of the days staring in Visual Studio trying to finish my project for college.
But fine, I'll humor you.

> Wikipedia
'Nuff said. Ronin were more often than not simple mercenaries, although that stuff is a matter of some debate among historians, so I'll concede on that point, to certain degree.

Second, that Do-maru armor is just one type of armor out of dozen that existed in just that period, and one of dozens developed over the period of hundreds of years. And its also not a complete armor, as its wearer would also carry several layers of leather clothing, chainmail parts, et cetera.
Do-maru is also not what you'd consider a heavy armor. Its closest European counterpart would be scalemail or lamellar (could be wrong).
And guess what? Both Do-maru and scalemail weigh between 12 and 15 kilos.
Now compare standard plate armor to lets say, Tosei Gusoku, something widely considered as a standard Japanese heavy armor. Whoop-de-doo, both weigh between 20 and 25 kilos.

Japanese armors were NOT any lighter than European ones. They also provided less protection compared to European ones due to the fact that, well, there was less armor that you were wearing, but also because European metalworkers were pretty much constantly years ahead of their Japanese counterparts. There's also the fact that European armors were better at distributing its weight over the body of its wearers than Japanese ones do, although this could be debatable due to the fact that European armors were primarily made as defense again bladed weapon, while Japanese ones were made against piercing weapons, so its pretty fucking obvious that you're going to have design differences there.

User avatar #188 - warbob (06/22/2015) [-]
First of all , I know next to nothing about katanas , perhaps you're seeing what you want to see instead of reality?

Second of all, european knights' armour was heavier and covered the whole body as you said, but the samurai was wearing nowhere near 30-40kg of armour and his weapon would be lighter (altho he has multiple so in total he might have more weight in terms of weapons) which allows for faster movement. Samurai swordsmanship is based solely on dodging and missdirecting attacks.

As I said to someone already, knights aren't SLOW but they are not fast either. Samurai training requires specificly being fast, otherwise you can't dodge.

PS: I believe ronin are considered failure of a samurai , one who could not protect, lost the favor of, or betrayed his master.
User avatar #193 - securityexplain (06/22/2015) [-]
Again, thats bullshit. Iron doesn't magically weigh less in Japan than it does in Europe.

Not to mention that this whole fucking topic is completely nonsense. There's no such thing as singular European knight nor Japanese samurai. Over the course of hundreds of years, techniques, gears, weapons, armors, trainings changed constantly, so trying to generalize both sides and then compare them like this is just pure nonsense.

But in general, you're WAY overestimating how much mobility samurais had and relied on, and you're WAY underestimating how much mobility European knights had. Take it from someone who wore the damn thing, and who watched live sparring matches and follows the whole medieval weapons/armors topic pretty closely.

Samurais were heavily-armored combatants. There wasn't any substantial dodging nor rolling involved in their repertoire, nor any more gimmicks than equally skilled European knight would have used. If you don't believe me, just do a cursory google search yourself.

Its pretty obvious you are severely misinformed about the whole subject and you're going on nothing but pop-culture references here. I don't mean anything bad by it, its not like its a fucking important subject that everyone has to be well versed into, but why the fuck take that stance so vehemently when you're going with nothing but flat out false facts?

Also, Ronin are not disgraced warriors, as they are shown in pop-culture. They are simply warriors who are not in active service. That could be due to death of master, which can be considered as disgrace, but those were pretty rare.

SCIENCE =/= ENG

I'm a science student and becoming awkwardly aware of how useless my degree is. But engineering degrees are a different story.

Also: engineers almost never pursue PhD's, their undergraduate degree is more than good enough to be gainfully employed.

pick one nigger.

If you get a degree with the word "Engineer" in it, I can guarantee you will have a job. It is the most stable job in the history of the world, next to doctors, and other such shit (civil jobs)

No matter what society comes to, there will always be engineers, and people will always be hiring them.

As far as that link goes, its showing data for US only. And I'd rather not get in argument about US academics, as I don't have particular amount of kind words to say about their school/university system.

Rings a bell.

Don't work for anyone, I'm a student, so what I do is purely as a hobby.
To be honest, haven't been following the area much lately, the college is taking its toll.

Damn man. Well Securitas is a international contract security company. Ranging from armed guard protecting offices, to just regular unarmed guards guarding and monitoring hotel sites around the world. I just started working for them at the beginning of this month, so I'm basically a rookie, but I enjoy it. Over the memorial holiday I was working overtime + T1/2 already. 15/hr for just starting out was awesome!

Just google it if you want. And best of luck in your IT career!!!

can you explain ECC to a nub

User avatar #13 to #12 - securityexplain (08/24/2014) [-]
I'm not all that well familiar with cryptography when it comes to details, although I can understand it quite well, I'd say.

From what I know, elliptic curve cryptography is basically a way of setting up encryption of some kind of data (a key, for example) with a certain mathematical formula, and is based on concept in which it is possible in theory to brute-force it through mathematical equations, but it takes so long to do it so no one bothers with it.

Altogether, its a quirky concept. It works marvelously against any half-assed attempts by amateurs, but it generally doesn't stand all that well against attacks perpetrated by professionals with serious equipment.
User avatar #14 to #13 - securityexplain (08/24/2014) [-]
Addendum: After reading a bit more on it, apparently its more widespread and a lot harder to crack than I've anticipated. I'm gonna have to read more closely about it.

Hey man, I've just recently heard the news on this new hearbleed glitch (or whatever you'd call it). What on Earth do I do to protect myself and my important information? I've already deleted any sensitive information from my computer but is there anything else I should be doing?
Sorry to bother you again, but this seems like the kind of thing your profile was made for.
User avatar #4 to #3 - securityexplain (04/11/2014) [-]
No problem, thats why I'm here.

Well, here's the deal with it. The dudes making OpenSSL library kinda screwed up. Thats a bit of a big deal, since OpenSSL is used widely. Like, extremely widely.

Whats that got to do with regular people? Well, the major concern is that any server thats ran on Apache or Nginx (which is majority of Internet) is vulnerable, including secured HTTP part, which is almost always used for sites where you use credit cards and stuff. If the site is vulnerable, that means that people who wish to do so can gain large amounts of information about traffic between server and visitors. 99% of that is just incoherent gibberish with which you can't even wipe your arse. But every once in a while, they can obtain your personal info that you've used on that site.

So, what can you do to protect yourself?
Simple, wait it out. Sort of like what you do with hurricanes. The patch has been finished within days and is still being deployed all over the world, depending on how responsive site owners are. It kinda takes a while to cover like 50% of the internet.

Until some further notice, simply don't buy anything from the internet. If you're worried about loosing your personal info, you might also consider thoroughly deleting cookies.
User avatar #8 to #4 - atrocitustheking (04/12/2014) [-]
So where can I find this patch when they release it? On that note, where do I go to find out when it's released?
User avatar #9 to #8 - securityexplain (04/12/2014) [-]
You don't. The patch is already released and is being deployed world-wide. Its a server-side thing.
User avatar #10 to #9 - atrocitustheking (04/12/2014) [-]
Oh, so it's not me that needs the patch, it's the guy on the other side? The one running the site as opposed to users of that site?
User avatar #5 to #4 - atrocitustheking (04/11/2014) [-]
Excellent! Thanks man.
User avatar #6 to #5 - securityexplain (04/11/2014) [-]
