No. Not even close. DeepL can't do it either. 〈孙盛杂记曰:初,姜维诣亮,与母相失,复得母书,令求当归。维曰:“良田百顷,不在一亩,但有远志,不在当归也。”〉 Google translate: <Sun Shengza Ji said: At the beginning, Jiang Weiyiliang lost his mother, and regained his mother's letter, asking for angelica. Wei said: "Hundred hectares of good land are ...

Re: Is Anyone Else a Pro-Wrestling Fan?

The Royal Rumble is tonight. It's usually the only WWE show I tend to watch because I have good memories of the Rumble match.

I barely recognize anyone in WWE anymore, but I'll always throw my support at some random no-name jobber to win for the lulz.

Great Muta Final "Bye Bye" is absolutely well worth the watch. Easily tops Wrestle Kingdom in Yokohama.

We also got the full card announcement for Keiji Muto's retirement at Tokyo Dome next month and it looks incredible.

Re: Is Anyone Else a Pro-Wrestling Fan?

Just finished Wrestle Kingdom Night 2 in Yokohama, New Japan x Pro-Wrestling NOAH. I'm a long lapsed New Japan fan, I haven't enjoyed the company fully since 2013. However I've loved NOAH since I first saw Marufuji vs KENTA in 2006, easily the greatest match to ever exist in my mind. So I get to wal...

Re: Hou Han Shu Translations

Correct. It was likely a later invention to explain her sudden death. Though it's not out of left field for a husband to put a wife to death for a number of reasons, but the reason given was not true. I don't have a good opinion of the Three Sima, and I firmly believe they never held loyalty to Wei....
