  1. People can be amusing

    I have blog that is dedicated primarily to my darker interests as it were in which I post articles about vampires, werewolves, historical witchcraft, and a variety of subjects relating to myth and lore, and both how they appear in folklore, history, and modern media sources and so forth and a while back I posted an article about Medieval torture devices that were used upon alleged witches and heretics. And someone posted a comment in which they mentioned warlocks. Which was basically the word used ...

  5. Similes

    by , 05-26-2010 at 08:36 AM (Rabid Thinking)
    While growing up I had always had trouble with reading, teachers never understood why, it wasn't that my comprehension level was low but that I could not spell, understand even the slightest law of grammar and read anything more then picture books.
