1976 in Afghanistan

The year, 1976. The country, Afghanistan. A golden era for Afghanistan, according to Waris Ahmed Barak on YouTube.

To the surprise of many Afghans, Pakistan delivered aid to Afghanistan, despite tensions between the countries. The… Continue reading 1976 in Afghanistan

First one for F1 – 2017 eSports Series

But what I can do is tell you about the Formula One eSports Series 2017, which was the first ever official competitive gaming event for the F1 franchise. More than 60,000 virtually gifted drivers attempted to qualify for the… Continue reading First one for F1 – 2017 eSports Series

Santo Zago, or is it Titian?

Santo Zago was an Italian or a Venitian fresco painter - a technique to paint a mural on lime plaster - to be more precise, active in 1530 or 1550 according to Wikipedia until his death in around 1568. Zago, a shrewd collector of antiques, was a student of Titian, an arguably more famous Italian painter… Continue reading Santo Zago, or is it Titian?

Teen Killer – Michael Lee Lockhart

This blog may contain sensitive information and descriptions that some may find disturbing - I've been dying to write that on one of these posts, although I probably should have put this warning on all of my other posts for my attempts at humour. Right, let's start with the information over on Wikipedia before I… Continue reading Teen Killer – Michael Lee Lockhart

Click Random Preview – Murder Incoming

No blog post today, I know you're devastated. Much like the story of Randolph Churchill, I want to provide more information than Wikipedia, which means that I must do as much research as possible by reading articles or even watching documentaries.

Slow Interesting Article Day – Turbo Imperialis

The Turbo Imperialis is a sea snail, so they must have been having a laugh when they named this species in around 1791. You can find this green shelled snail in South Africa, New South Wales, and maybe even Madagascar. As part of the Turbinidae family - I'm imagining a mafia of snails now - the… Continue reading Slow Interesting Article Day – Turbo Imperialis
