Re: Hash

NatGeo now pubishes a magazine called National Geographic HISTORY. In the November/December2018 issue there is an article about the group which originated in Iran/Persia and filtered to Syria/Lebanon calling themselves the Assassins.

Re: Yule

I'm sure it is just some small thing I missed in my education over the years, but does anyone know why, despite the Winter Solstice the days are still getting shorter? Sunset is now after five pm and sunrise moving closer to 8 am (central time: usa). I've been really curious and would really like to...

Re: Epiphany

I've heard of pre-born twins wherein one somehow absorbs the other

Re: Colonel

Yup, your thoughts make perfect sense to me, exactly the
