Explain the AH Quote

"Nevermore... Nevermore... Nevermore..."
The last words of Idaho nuclear plant Jacob Wasserman, who repeated to himself not to let temperature of the Langley Gulch nuclear power plant rise beyond a certain degree just seconds before the 1984 explosion.

"A rotten shark's tooth is the first to be replaced" - Micronesian proverb
A proverb reflecting on how when an institute is rotting, the first things fixed are offensive weapons, using it in comparisons to military operations. It saw more prominent usage when the United Communes of Micronesia underwent peacetime at the end of the Cold War and seeing the end of Japanese military operations (and thus not needing to rely as much as help from the Union of Socialist America.

"According to the religious migrations in history, Zoroastrianism spread from Iran up to Central Asia and into the Ural Mountains and Slavic states after the introduction of Islam"

An excerpt from an essay by an unknown High-School student for his report on the history of Zoroastrianism.

"When my father passed away, it was the happiest day of my life, he was a tyrant and psychopath who destroyed intellectual institutes and had prayers written to himself or forcibly rewrote the prayers of the religions which our people followed. Even today I'm certain that at the bare minimum, a quarter of our population still adhere to the Church of Winston, and they revere me as a prophet for Christ's sake!"

Starting in the 1810's, a new branch of christianity emerges known as Tenentism, founded by one Alexander Paul Winston (1796-1858), a bit syncretic with hellenistic beliefs. It gained high amounts of traction amongst the southern states, whom adopted it as the state religion of the Confederate American States's expansionist empire. Winston's son, George (1818-1871) was critical of the religion, and both individuals eventually disowned one another, and the quote came from a death bed interview.

"Many said my head was in the clouds, but that was only because I was the only one whose head wasn't up their damn asses."

A quote by Huey Long III, a politician similar to his father, the Kingfish. He said this in response to comments from most Congressmen over his democratic socialist ideals and how most of Congress was more obsessed over prestige or kowtowing to religious institutions, businesses or anything other than the common good of the people. Many dreamers would come to use this quote when he would win a landslide election in the 1960s, which led to the American Troubles, conflicts between the Long Presidency and reactionry groups like the KKK and other members. It would end in the 1976 with a new Constitutional Assembly to create the United Communes of America and lead the world into a second Pax Americana.

German paper Der Rote Fahne headline in late 1939. The Democratic Socialist alliance of Germany and France intervened in the Spanish Civil War; this intervention provoked a counter-invasion by Portugal, who expected Italian aid. Italy, however, decided against intervention, and Portugal stood alone as Britain retreated from involvement on the Continent. By the end of the Iberian War, Portugal and Spain were replaced by the Portuguese Socialist Republic and the Second Spanish Republic. The Canaries, along with the Azores and other Portuguese colonies, were seized by the British.

Anne Bonny, self-proclaimed First Consul of the Caribbean, shortly after the public execution of Gov. Woodes Rogers and final expulsion from the Bahamas of the Royal Navy. Soon after this proclamation, in early 1728, Bonny's fleet would capture the new French settlement of New Orleans and create the nucleus of the Piratical Republic of the Americas.

So you watched the documentary about Fátima yesterday! That was nice, and the bit where she was playtesting the game on the living room rug with the kids really cute.

It's a pity that she wouldn't give any release dates but hey, she's one of the best designers in the tabletop games scene here on Al-Andaluz, if he she says that the game could use some more polish, then I believe her. And I think it's going to be worth it, it's still using the usual hex and counters base but as usual with her it has a "little twist" added and the decision to got with the planning cards is really interesting, and we're going to have a Frankonian artist working on them.

Yes, Frankonian games tend to be a little random, well, they usually go with card games, so it's natural, and you got to admit the art on their cards it's gorgeous, and that's what she's bringing in. And you should try some of them, not easy to find on this side of the Pyrenees, I know, they usually come from small publishers and print runs are somewhat short, but the variety and ingenuity are worth checking out.

Or maybe you should give that new Tatar thing a look? The one about the Khan of Khans? The dice placement gimmick is tons of fun.

"Be aware that the Huns will invade and ravage at 15:00, for a better experience we recommend that you pick your spot some twenty minutes early, souvenir stands will be working on an extended schedule so you will have plenty of time for your shopping afterwards, with a special discount on the blue Attila tunics for today, don't miss them."

An announcement from Village of Earth, a theme park in Prešporok, European Federation. The theme park recreates historical moments from across the world, one of which being the Hunnic invasions.

"The Lidice Massacre was the final straw for quite literally everyone. The murder of all its citizens, simply because Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated, led every single neutral country to declare war on Nazi Germany. [...] In a cruel twist of fate, after the war ended in 1944, the Nazi leadership was trialed in the dead town. [...] Horst Böhme, the man who ordered the Lidice Massacre, was burned to death by a Czech mob shortly after his conviction, and his charred remains lay in the town since then, spat on by passerby, and now by visiting tourists."

Quote from the Lidice Memorial, a memorial for a destroyed town. This town was destroyed in World War II, and then its remains memorialized afterwards.

"The Judgment War... one of the disasters caused by the infamous Heartbreak Prince."
This quote refers to the hittite saga The Invasion of Wulion, chronicling the culture's war with Mycenae. The Heartbreak Prince likely refers to Prince Lyka.

"Growing up in China, I can confirm that taoists are indeed a very racist culture. My parents and extended relatives regarded multicultural as being a dishonourable thing that would bring shame to our ancestors, because it was not what they intended, and reduce time for our own traditions in favour of a bunch of stupid babarian hooligans. They scorned and yelled vietmanese and indonesian refugees, they would not sit where africans and muslims had sat, and would punch minyues if they got the chance. I myself had at best been scolded and even spanked just for suggesting such actions were bad, that our great grandparents would disapprove of wanton violence and hate fuelled by selfish narcissism of our cultures."

Mao Tse-Tung, leader of Red China, on his rationale for supporting the annexation of China to the World Soviet Republic. By this time, in the early 1960s, the WSR had adopted its 'Proletkult' policy, which prescribed the systematic 'withering away' and ultimate abolition of traditional religions and national/ethnic identities and their eventual replacement with a post-Capitalism proletarian culture. This had been largely achieved in some of the European soviet republics, where upwards of 60% of the population was self-identified as atheist and crash urbanization had done away with many of the peculiarities of rural peasant life. In the Asian republics it would be a much longer process.

The rumored last, and incoherent, ramblings of King Ludwig XI of the Kingdom of Bavaria. Communist revolutionaries had successfully entered the royal palace, and, according to the soldiers there, this was the last thing said before he was gunned down while charging the communist force with a broadsword. The Great War, and ensuing revolution (which had caused the Kingdom to leave the Great War in the first place) had unravelled any semblance of sanity the King had left. However, what's curious is the fact that the aforementioned King's sister, had passed away in infancy in 1887 while the then-Prince was only 6 years of age.

"Well, m'lady, it appears that the King has- well, vanished."

The Captain of the King's Gaurds informing Queen Catherine of her husband's mysterious dissaperence.

Unhappy with the confines of rulership and being trapped in a loveless marriage, King Henri of France switched clothes with a manservant and fled the palace, running away with his lover Diana to live as the pirates. Well at least that is one rumors, others included murder and witchcraft at the hands of the scheming Catherine De Mercidi who was Regant for her son and then for her grandson before dying at the ripe old age of eighty. Neither King Henri nor Diana's bodies have ever been found and their dissaperence remains the subjects of various legends, novels, movies.

"Your sister writes of her love for you, how much she misses you, how she hopes you are well, and that if you don't remove your arse from her throne this instant, she will knock you off it by any means necessary."

Said by a messenger from Mary, Queen Consort of France, daughter of King Henry VIII to her sister Elizabeth, Queen of England and Queen Consort of the Netherlands. Henry VIII had only two daughters, Mary and Elizabeth despite marrying six times. This message was sent to her after the death of Henry VIII in 1553. Mary's marriage to Francis II was made possible only after Mary agreed to give up her claim to the English throne in favour of her sister in the case her father did not have a male child. Elizabeth was later married to William of Orange Nassau, later William I of the Netherlands. The letter would put the English on high alert for the next few days as a second letter from Mary would be a formal congratulation and a small note saying the whole throne thing was a joke.

While the initial landing proved a success the American Indians were thrown off the isles. This quote comes from the controversial History.com which has made several mistakes in the past.
Comrades of the Revolution the reactionary republicans to the west and east seek to crush the workers of Europe under their boot. What do we say to this NO! The people of Europe stand united in the name of our God, our Kings, our countries and our freedom! So forward man rally around the red and purple banner the working revoultion marches on. God Save the King- Charles De Gualle.

Revolutionary Charles De Gualle, broadcast over radio to French, German, and Polish revolutionary forces. Europe had long been dominated by the Grand Alliance of the Commonwealth of England, the Most Serene States of Italy, and the Sovereign Republic of the Rus. De Gualle advocated for the establishment of what was termed a Working Monarchy, where an elected King would guide the State and people closer and closer to a true worker's Christian utopia through a life long service, freed from the exploitation of the capitalist merchants and the blasphemous and bloated churches. The Wars of Liberation would result in the establishment of a variety of new European nation-states.

And so now, as the greatest war in the history of the world draws to a close, we see another brewing on the horizon. A great wall seems to have been barred shut across the seas, between the New World and the Old. Here in the Old World, old nations have been reborn as bastions of liberty, democracy, and cooperation between seemingly disparate peoples. In the New, cruel, ambitious regimes made of cruel, ambitious men seek to mold the world to their image, and damn the rest of us. We can only hope that the same tides of liberty now seizing our homelands find their way across the oceans, and bring the people of the Americas the liberty and justice they so deserve.

The closing segment of newly elected Chancellor Franz Blücher of the Free Democratic Party, the winning candidate in the 1949 German Elections during his inauguration speech. While Europe has returned to democracy, liberty and freedom, the New World had fallen to a rising tide of Fascism, including the United States. The "Great Divide" totally seperated Europe from the Americas, ideologically and politically. The American Empire now wishes to expand the name of Fascism to the rest of the world, and support the rebuilding of Nazi Germany. It would last until 1991, when the Empire held it's first Democratic elections under support from the Russian Federation.

"I had been deceived by the military from the very beginning. No one dared to follow my orders. As we speak gentlemen, NATO is bombarding Red Square, and it will only be a matter of time before our remaining fighting units will desert our ranks, like everyone else had. How can I be a leader in these circumstances? How?"

"But sir, I think you should resort to-"

"I will not resort to politics and face them all on the Conference Table. I'd rather die with honor than in humiliation. There is no way we can turn this around now. So my friends, do what you want. I officially resign as your leader. I'm sorry."

Marshall Zhukov resigning from his possition as Soviet Union de facto leader after Brezhnev's death. After the death of Stalin, Malenkov, a puppet for NKVD head Beria, succeeded him as General Secretary and purged Kruschev. In 1955, Brezhnev would manage to depose the two and in 1958 would declare war on the Western Bloc, although by the time the URSS had lost it's influence and the other states in the Eastern Bloc didn't follow it . Marshall Zhukov, having been given back his old fame and possition in the military, took power in an intent to turn the situation around, but unfortunately it was too late.

What my opponent in the campaing is insinuating is that due to my enhancements I didn't suffered in the war as much as the common soldier and the voters only trust in a woman for the job because she, as some people claim, "was practically a propaganda figure " . I respectfully disagree: the women of the Amazon Brigade fought in the most dangerous fronts of the war and in some cases had to accomplish her missions in full enemy territory. Many times I managed to come gracefully of death or life situations, not by augmented strength or speed, but for pure intelligence, wit and faith. And if a woman can fight and stand against tiranny and totalitarianism, I dare say she can lead this country in the restless quest for freedom.
