General Chat, who was he?





chasbeen
He took armies further, motivated his men from the front of the line and faced the enemy on their terran but always on his terms.

They say he modelled himself on Tran Hung Dao, the Mongolian Empire general who led the strongest army there.

What other Generals do you admire and what do you most admire about General Chat?

Didn't you do this thread already?

2009 and I remembered it. Note to brain,stop filling my head up with stuff I don't need to remember and save some space for some important stuff. Wink

Yes correct Hi truespeed

Insanity

BigGeek
We are talking about Alexander the Great? Is that correct?

Lol nice job! I don't think you have the right to complain, I'm sure many people would love to replace their crashingly faulty memory with remembering too much Very Happy

There was a documentary about people with rare condition, which causes them to remember EVERYTHING. All that has ever reached their senses is coded and stays coded forever. And just like you, they don't enjoy it! They say it's like having a supercomputer that takes loads of energy always on and having a split screen in life - one part is what's happening, the other one instantly reimagines what already happened in super high-speed vision. They say it's like brain is constantly recounting past memories and recoding them without their knowledge. They say it's super-tiring and there's no way to mentally turn it off.

Napoleon.

He began his career as an artillery officer, and he maintained a love for artillery throughout his reign. He put enormous emphasis on the power of field guns to change the tide of battle, and his wars happened to coincide with revolutions in cannoneering technology that made his visions possible.

He favored lighter, more mobile cannon than his enemies, and he deployed him in independent companies that were not hamstrung in their actions by the movement of supporting infantry or cavalry.

His artillery commanders were therefore able to put more constant, reliable pressure on an enemy, helping with Napoleon's characteristic aggressive posture and maneuvering.

The thing is. It would be great to remember everything, but it's unpleasant when you can't remember what you want because you have lots of useless memories taking priority. It's as if you had a computer and you opened a folder called "Music" and it were filled with photographs of musicians, their birthdates and the musical theory they used to create their works, but none of it were musical tracks. It'd be quite frustrating, wouldn't it?

Was he Genghis Khan? If so, very beautiful report about humanity's most preeminent propotional genocidal leader ever.

No, it's a play on words you see. There's no "General Chat" really.
It was something I started in 2009 and everyone (stupidly) pretends and writes something stupid.
It's possibly the stupidest topic on the forum. The "General Chat" section of the forum is for topics that cannot be put in other categories and not solely about a fictitious character who never existed😜😜😜
spinout
But we had a General Chat in the Swedish army!!!!
HM, but when I Think of it his name was Tjat... meaning nag-talk.
He must have been from Gothenburg... everyone from there use the Word Tjat frequently.

Leave it!
spinout
hehe I can't ! My whole Life is now ruined looking for this general... I Think he had a cousin called "rally" - therefor the game "generally" was released Smile

Great game by the way Laughing

Its nice to read about him.

Yeah, I enjoy this General. For some reason he seems to be World wide. Hm, but in general he must be asian. What if he is a She??? An amazon!!

Marcuzzo
was he a four-star general? Twisted Evil
spinout
That question of stars is depending on in what army?!?! I don't Think we have agreed on that yet?
I am still going on the trail that she was an Amazon.
Marcuzzo
women tend to be chatty so in a way it does kind of make sense.

as far as which army goes, we would need to figure out the country.

The word 'Chat' could come from a lot of places. in fact, I'm pretty sure that the root of the word 'chat' is greek.

In fact, The greek word chat means 'hat' and what do you pull over your ears when women start to chat and nag... a hat... chat, hat, there you go.


let's look at a few more less plausible options:

France:

chat is the french word for Cat, so his name may have been Chartreux
So we could be talking about a 4-star General from France that goes by the name of Chartreux.

another possibility is that 'Chat' wasn't his real name but his nickname and we could be talking about François Louis de Rousselet, Marquis de Châteaurenault, ... Chateau, Chat...


I'm still putting my money on the greek. think of it... what do most generals wear...? that's right... a hat, coincidence? I think not
Josso
some say general chat goes back to the days of IRC
LxGoodies
This is the worse google search i EVER tried .. there's a Chatfield but he did't make it to general, he is captain.

French chat

Quite possible.. found a Cambodian reference from French-colonial times of a Général Chat-tri, must be half French (?)

"Le général Oanr-san expédia une dépêche au général Chat-tri, qui était
dans le Cambodge, pour l'engager à revenir à Siam avec
son frère, afin de conférer sur les affaires de ce royaume. "

Or.. a German name "Schatz" ? Cool I don't get any nearer than this man, alive and kicking..

If general chat existed he would be Googlybul.
I wish he did, wouldn't it be LxGoodies
Marcuzzo
Maybe General Chat was from the future.
Maybe... general Chat was John Titor's commanding officer.
spinout
Ah, didn't hear of that titor guy Before.... A time traveller.... But can't be, because that we would have terminators all over the Place...
