Posted December 30th, 2017 at 04:10 AM by rrohit

Rome was a prosperous and powerful empire. With a very long history of the great civilization, there are still remnants of that history we can see even today. There are several Roman inventions still used in our culture. Some of them are

Hearing talk of global warming, I'm experiencing the coldest winter.

Posted December 26th, 2017 at 06:44 AM by Viperlord (Viperlord's History Blog)

I have written one long movie review before, for The Battle of the Five Armies, and prefaced it by stating I was an unabashed fanboy of Lord of the Rings, both Tolkienís work and Peter Jacksonís adaptation. I issue much the same warning here; I have been a Star Wars fan since I was a child, I have seen every Star Wars film, played numerous Star Wars games, read much of the Star Wars Expanded Universe (when that was a thing), and viewed some of the television series spawned by the movies.
