While I was eating I briefly took notice of a documentary comparing the gothic subculture to the Visigoths.

I didn't pay much attention but now I'm curious... How does a sub-culture of people who sulk and write poetry relate to a culture of people who ransacked Europe for years and years?

They both suck, that's how.

Visigoths?


Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmhmm.

I'm pretty sure it's actually related to the Eastern European architecture style originated in the medieval era, known as the Gothic style. Which is kinda dark.

Because of that. Not sure how, but I'm sure it has something to do with whatever you said.

They are nothing alike. Other than the name of the Germanic tribes, the word Gothic was first used as a derogatory term for medieval architecture during the renaissance. It's just used to describe a grim quality.

Cuz Goths kick ass and the Visigoths (and their cousins the Ostrogoths) kicked Europe's ass for a few hundred years.

How did goths make the transitions to Emo's?


They both wear black and talk about their feelings.

In fairness it was during the downfall of the roman empire that this happenend. Hell, I could have done it myself with my army of woodlice.

The Huns were alot more fearsome.

Why the hell am I talking about this?

Not really, the Romans were a bunch of Christian pussies at that point.

You didn't pay much attention, that might be way.
Also you're incredibly stereotyping the Goth culture. Many Goths are not sulky and are, gasp, happy. Some write poetry, yeah, but so do a lot of "normal" people too.

The term Goth was used to label Joy Division's and from that, and numerous other Batcave-era bands, came the Goth culture how it is (or isn't) today. Nothing to do with the Eastern Germanic tribe.

Wasn't an armies success usually inversely proportional to the number of elephants it had?

When Constantinople fell, there were no more surviving Gothic kingdoms...

The Visigoths fell to the Moors in the east long before then. By the end of the Byzantine Empire, the Reconquista had created a bunch of Christian kingdoms in Spain. The Visigoths in France were taken over by the Franks.

Yes

But I would always send out light infantry to counter them, and chase them back into their own lines.
