1. Got into your stuff through HEMA channels on youtube and have come to enjoy a little bit of everything. I love following your updates on the Hannibal work and your other history videos, but I've come to enjoying your input on most other things. Very few days have gone by of late where I haven't seen a beige shirt and gotten a new perspective on life!

3. Samurai and suicide
"The particular favoured method of suicide was hara-kiri or “belly cutting” (the word seppuku refers to the formal ritual ceremony of suicide)"
You are correct about the word seppuku being formal than the word harakiri, but the two words actually mean the same thing. They do feel different though.

The two words are each written with the same two Chinese characters but not in the same order.

In harakiri, "hara" neans "belly" and "kiri" means "cut". This is the Japanese reading of the characters, and the roots of these words existed long before Japan adopted Chinese characters.

The word seppuku is formed from the same Chinese characters in reverse order. "Setsu" means "cut" while "fuku" means "belly". When an "f" is preceded by something, it often becomes a "b" or a "p" while when a "tsu" is followed by a something, it doubles the consonant. So setsu-fuku becomes "seppuku".

Because harakiri is formed from Japanese roots, it's a very dramatic, emotionally charged word. Seppuku is analogous to what a latin-root word feels like in English.

Keep the videos coming. Not so much a fan of fighting techniques and weapons, but very much a fan of strategy.

I really liked your video on rhetoric.

Cheers!

16. This place reminded me of a typical example of personal webpages from perhaps 20 years ago, and I'm rather astounded that such designs still exist and are updated. A reminder of simpler times to be sure.

18. I found your "Built for the Stone Age" pilot quite comical and it was similar to things I've been thinking of for quite some time. I wonder if you were ever considering revisiting it? I love the other videos as well.

20. I have very much enjoyed reading through the Opinions section of your site. I had a slight issue with the Holocaust one, because I felt like the headline was slightly attention-grabbing clickbait-style and perhaps slightly misleading, but apart from that I thoroughly enjoyed all the articles, especially the one on vegetarianism. I wondered if you could maybe give me a few pointers, seeing as you've been quite successful, for my young site, which can be found at UnorthodoxJasonReed.wordpress.com. (You can contact me on UnorthodoxJasonReed@gmail.com). I'd appreciate your advice.
