Martians

You can watch this 1 hour video on the research that proposes there are/were living things in ancient Martian lakes.  I watched/listened to some of it.  It’s interesting, but I don’t have the time to dedicate to it’s entirety.  Unlike some of the scientific videos, this one is interesting, and the presenters know how to … Continued

The end of an Era

Earlier this month something unbelievable happened, StumbleUpon closed down.  I didn’t know it was founded in 2002.  I started using it in 2005, or 2006 I think.  I can’t remember exactly, I’m pretty sure that I started using the site well before that blog post, but who knows. Endless hours, nay, days were spent stumbling … Continued

If it weren’t for the brave men who stormed those beaches 74 years ago, the world as we know it would not exist.  I’ve detailed it before in alternate history thursday posts.  I will not explain it here.  Instead this post will serve … Continued

Once you can get past the terrible narration, you can appreciate the absolutely terrifying nature of this whistle.  It’s theorized that these whistles were used to strike fear in the enemies.  Or to send send the human brain into the next state of being. I guess when you don’t have metallurgy, or guns, or those … Continued

Remember Pearl

There is no Alternate History this year, just straight up remembrance.  76 years ago the world changed (for the better I would say).  It was a major event, and even now people are second guessing the circumstances that eventually led up to it.  But I have this much to say.  Don’t judge the past on … Continued
