So when said horde did arrive, they saw the general sitting outside the city’s open gates, drinking tea. The horde sent a couple of emissaries over to see what was what, and the general greeted them cheerfully and invited them all to come and take tea with him. The horde decided that this was a scenario that had “MASSIVE FUCKING TRAP” written all over it in beautiful calligraphy and promptly fucked off.

The two were both regarded as tactical geniuses and recognized the other as their rival. Zhuge Liang had a reputation for ambushing the SHIT out of his opponents and using the environment to his advantage, thus destroying large armies with a small number of men.

On to the actual story: Zhuge Liang is all like “shit i gotta defend this city with like 10 men.” Literally if he fights ANY kind of battle here, he WILL lose; his only option for survival is not to fight. And that’s looking more and more impossible until he hears that his rival is leading the opposing army. And then he gets this brilliant idea. He basically opens all the gates, sends his men out in civilian clothes to sweep the streets, and sits on top of the gate drinking tea and chilling out and basically makes the whole thing out to be a trap When Sima Yi comes he’s all like “yo come on in bro” and Sima Yi is like “yeah he’s never been that obvious about his traps before. this is definitely a bluff” and he’s about to head in when he realizes wait. he knows that i think he’s bluffing. and so he gets it in his head that maybe, just MAYBE, Zhuge Liang has this cunning plan that will wipe out his army - recall that he has a pretty good handle on what his rival is capable of. And after a long period of deliberation (which is just like “he know that I know that he knows that etc.”), being the cautious man he is, SIma Yi eventually decides to turn his entire army around and leave. Zhuge Liang later points out that the plan was based specifically on the fact that he was facing his rival; if it had been anyone else, there’s no way it would have worked. A dumber or less cautious person would have simply charged in and won without breaking a sweat.  and that’s the real genius here: it was a plan formed entirely just to deceive one man, and it worked. Zhuge Liang is the most brilliant, sneaky-ass bastard in history. One time his side’s army was out of arrows, which pretty much meant they were screwed. So Zhuge Liang goes and does the logical thing, which is build a fuck ton of scarecrows and put them all on boats. Then he makes the men hide in the boats and sail them out on the river. Well, that day was super foggy (which Zhuge Liang had predicted. Did I mention he was also a freakishly accurate meteorologist?). So the enemy across the river sees a fleet of boats armed to the teeth with what appears to be half an army of men. They panic! and start firing arrows like crazy.  Zhuge Liang lets this play out for a while, then he’s like, ”Ok guys that’s enough.” They calmly turn the boats around and go back to base, where they dismantle the scarecrows and pull out all the enemy’s arrows. Zhuge Liang is legend. I love this post. It just keeps getting better. Like seriously, I would have adored learning about this in World History. If you want to see this in cinematic glory, watch Red Cliff. Especially since it makes Zhuge Liang look like this: Red Cliff is 50% bloody battles and 50% eye candy and about half of that eye-candy is due to Zhuge Liang I fully support watching Red Cliff; it’s gloriously silly entertainment during the battle scenes.

There’s another story that I like about a Chinese general who had to defend a city with only a handful of soldiers from a huge enemy horde that was in all likelihood going to steamroll the place flat within hours of showing up.
So when said horde did arrive, they saw the general sitting outside the city’s open gates, drinking tea. The horde sent a couple of emissaries over to see what was what, and the general greeted them cheerfully and invited them all to come and take tea with him.
The horde decided that this was a scenario that had “MASSIVE FUCKING TRAP” written all over it in beautiful calligraphy and promptly fucked off.
Whoever that general was, he was clearly the Ancient Chinese equivalent of Sam Vimes.


did he just invite us over for tea nah man i’m out

so this story is the Romance of Three Kingdoms, and essentially takes place between Zhuge Liang, resident tactician extraordinaire, and Sima Yi… OTHER resident tactician extraordinaire.

The duo of Osine Ikhianosime and Anesi Ikhianosime have rekindled 
hope in the future of nigeria as they entered their names in the 
catalogue of application developers when they built a mobile web browser
 that is already in use globally. Osine Ikhianosime 13, and Anesi 
Ikhianosime 15 who co-developed ‘Crocodile Browser Lite’ were born of 
same parents and both are Year nine and 11 students of Greensprings 
School, Anthony Campus, Lagos. While both brothers write code, Anesi 
designs the user interface.

Osine Ikhianosine and Anesi Ikhianosime
Osine and Anesi launched the mobile browser on the Mobango app store 
before moving to Google Play Store to try and reach a wider audience. As
 you read this piece, the browser currently has around 100 to 500 
downloads and they do not have ads in the app yet. They both began 
developing an Android web browser, which they named Crocodile Browser 
Lite, about a year ago out of boredom.
Due to their strong interest  in technology, they decided to create a
 functional, fast browser for feature and low end phones because, 
according to them, “We were fed up with Google Chrome.” Osine who told 
TechCabal in his pitch mail said: ‘’I write the code, my brother designs
 it.”
Born April 28, 2001, his interest in computers began at age seven. It
 was also at this age that he and his brother, Anesi Ikhianosime, who 
was 9 at the time, came up with the idea of starting a company.
Recalling how it started, Osine said, they first named it ‘Doors’ 
with Microsoft’s Windows, but when they discovered that the name was 
already in use, they had to change the name to BluDoors. Relating his 
experience, Osine said: ‘’When we decided to learn to code at age 12 and
 14 respectively, I didn’t let my uncle’s belief that it would be a 
tough feat to achieve deter me.”
On his part, Anesi said: “I learnt to code by myself. I started in 
2013, I used sites like Code Academy, Code Avengers and books like 
‘Android for Game Development’ and ‘Games for Dummies’,” said Anesi. 
Meanwhile their mother, Mrs Ngozi Ikhianosime, who is a Mathematics 
teacher said: “Osine could already use a PC before he could read at age 
three. It is all he does since he learnt to code.”
The mother who ascribed the success to Greensprings Schools, said 
students of the school have access to computer and internet facilities, 
just as personal laptops are made available to each of them at home. 
“After Anesi is through with his secondary school education, he will 
attend A levels, after which he will go to MIT in Boston for his first 
degree, because the university has the facilities he needs to learn.” 
She said.
Their father Mr Philip Ikhianosime, who is the Head of Management 
Services and Human Resource Manager at an Insurance Company says the 
boys developed interest in PC usage very early. He agrees as well, that 
his children’s school is very instrumental in their continued interest 
in programming.
Anesi says that he’d like to develop another app that solves real 
social problems, such as traffic and communication. The brothers are 
releasing a new version of Crocodile Browser Lite 3.0 this April.
