The Weirdest Things People Used to Believe

Humans have believed all kinds of strange things throughout our short time on this planet. This is, in part, because humans (and our evolutionary ancestors) love stories. We gather around campfires and invent entire mediums, industries, and technologies to aid in their telling. But on the other hand, humans have always had a deep need to understand the world we inhabit, and the combination of these qualities can lead to very uninformed people believing some very strange things. From cold…

History's Strangest Ancient Rulers

The word strange is barely adequate for some of the ancient leaders described here, if the tales told of them are true. The ancient world had no shortage of outright butchers who practiced patricide, matricide, fratricide, and mass murders to consolidate and secure their positions at the head of their societies. They used brutal, though inventive methods to kill their perceived enemies and rivals, and exhibited a lust for blood and inflicting pain. Some of them appear on this list, including…

10 Places Where People Have Never Been

Through technological advancement and good old-fashioned human stubbornness, much of the Earth has been mapped and human boots have touched down on virtually every continent, island, desert, forest, and icy plane… or have they? It might surprise some people to learn that there are still vast areas of the Earth left uninhabited, explored, or even mapped properly. While it is true that much of the Earth has been surveyed, vast portions of wilderness in Chile haven’t been, a handful of mountain…

For instance, a number of very prolific killers ended up getting caught because of some remarkably stupid mistakes. 10. The Trunk Mistake It was back in 2008 when 22-year-old…

The Biggest Missteps in Military History

War is - more often than that - a numbers game. Unless something unlikely happens, it’s usually the side with the numerical advantage that goes home with the victory, which has been especially true in history. Many modern weapons - like nukes - can easily make brute force obsolete, though that wasn’t the case for most of our history. If you took a bigger and more intimidating army to a battle, you were almost-always more likely to return victorious. That is, of course, unless you happen to…

In modern times we commonly refer to the reign of Queen Victoria as the Victorian Era in England. That era stretched from the year 1837 until 1901. In the grand scheme of human history, it wasn’t so long ago. In the grand scheme of culinary history, it might as well have happened a million years ago on another planet.

Shocking Facts About the Russian Empire

When we talk about the mighty empires of history, we usually think of the more influential ones, such as the Chinese, British, or even the Mongol empires. The Russian empire, though, is often left out of those conversations, despite being one of the largest and longest-running empires in history. Now, the reason for that could be Russia’s traditional rivalry with leading and influential European powers of the time almost throughout its history, though it may also be because it was always too…
