Dear Historum Forum Friends,

I have joined this forum a couple of days ago. And started to search forums, because I want to learn more about the history. I found a thread about dark ages, and in this thread I also would like to write something. And I'm adding this issue from that thread to here.

If we say that 'the dark ages all around the world in the same date, we will be mistaken'. Let me explain that.

A story

Posted August 25th, 2015 at 04:17 PM by The Imperial Russian

I will recount an interesting tale I had in my home village. Some necessary backstory is that kids (and adults) love a game called stalker [url=http://www.stalker-game.com/]S.T.A.L.K.E.R.[/url] and can get an abundance of toy guns shooting little plastic pellets (what do you call them?) and now to the story. These likely lads were of a wide age group (9-21 I think) and had bought lots, and lots, of these plastic guns. They had SVDs, Kalashes, Deagles, Barets, Revolvers, shotguns, et cetera. Now,...

In April, 2012 Nature published a report by Jeremy Shakun et al: Global warming preceded by increasing carbon dioxide concentrations during the last deglaciation. In essence Shakun found that at some point during the last glaciation, Earth's position in the Milankovitch cycle resulted in enough solar insolation to start melting northern ice sheets. Enormous amounts of water were released into the Atlantic. Because it was relatively cold and dense compared to the sea, that constant flow of fresh...

To each hirs own...

"to each (singular) their (plural) own"
and the accurate but awkward
"to each his or her own".

But I'm open to an elegant way to include all human beings when all human beings are being referenced. I wonder why we haven't yet made use of our usual resort when dealing with language change over...
