Medieval Bias

I love watching movies and series set in medieval times. For some strange reason, it brings something out of me and always has me wishing I lived during that periods (as a free man, of course).

Homo Sapiens: The Walking & Thinking Labels and Tags

Some time ago, I went to the supermarket to get some provisions and to get jam for a friend I lost a bet to.
