    Our timeline could be much shorter than we think...

    Today's Date "I can’t tell you exactly what year it is because we honestly don’t know," said Morpheus in The Matrix.

    Those things visiting my e-mail... I wish I had time to cover everything. Google Translated Link Arkhangelsk I wish I could find this building on Google Maps, but it's kind of hard, for I do not know what I'd be looking for. The article is a bit confusing as far as the address of this building...

    Noah's Flood and Russian Pineapple Trees

    1860s: Russian Ironclads including Monitors

    With as much time as I spent reading and researching things related to various iron hulled 19th century ships, running into these 1860s Russian Ironclads was a bit of a surprise. The history of the mentioned wiki page partially explained the reason I did not see this page prior to 07/31/2020...

    Novaya Zemlya: Russians Hiding the Remnants of the Old World?

    The City of Harbin or the Battle for Cambalu?
