Why Russia And America Have To Involve The Entire World With Their Lover’s Quarrel?

Alfred stared at the newspaper in his hands, eyes wide with horror and surprise. “Wah, this is really scary,” he exclaimed. “What’s going on with the world? Why is this happening?” Cyrus, who was looking indifferent as usual, glanced over at Alfred and at the newspaper in the other’s hands. He noted what the headline proclaimed in very large font and rolled his eyes, exasperated. With such a headline, you’d think the world was ending right at this very moment; what a way to instill panic into some people, he thought with annoyance. He glanced back out the window;[...]

The Demonic Devils Bible?

Back in the late13th century, in Bohemia, there appeared a literary work of amazing quality, rumour suggesting that this iconic production first showed up at the Podlažice monastery, near Chrudim, from where it was pawned to Cistercian monks, and moved on Sedlec.  This creation has, throughout a long history, been known variously as the Liber Permonastery in grandis, the Codex Gigas,  or more chillingly the Devil’s Bible. 1295 is the date when first written reports appeared about a volume supposedly written in 1229, possibly by one of the occupants of the small Benedictine monastery where it was discovered.

Reason Why Tumblr’s Blog Pages Use The Same Codes As The Text Posts And Why That’s A Problem?

Trying to modify, edit and customize your Tumblr blog theme can be a complete and total nightmare if you’re not an expert at this at all (if you are, then you’d be making your own theme from scratch; I totally would if I could).
