  1. Reenacting

    I've always wanted to do reenacting, and I never really knew what period I wanted to do. American Revolution? American Civil War? The list is endless, and I never thought I'd narrow it down. That is until a few years ago when I really started getting into WWI, and I decided then I wanted to do WWI Reenacting. I've watched countless videos on YouTube of various events - especially the one down in Newville Pennsylvania that happens every Spring and Fall, they have a Trench network set up there. ...

  4. IlluminatiRex's College Adventures - Freshman Year

    So, my Freshman year of College has finally ended. What a ride that was, and I really can't wait for what's in store for my next semester. Some background on me - I'm an Anthropology major who hopes to eventually go into Archeology. Especially Battlefield Archeology of the first world war. Oh, and I changed the names of my friends for this.

    It started back in August, well, even a bit earlier than that - June of 2014. June was Freshman Orientation. It was a hot day, and luckily my campus ...

  5. Beer contains female Hormones

    Last month, National University of Lesotho scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer.

    Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption.

    The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women.

    To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a 1 hour period.

    It was then observed
