The Battle Of Chalons, A.D. 451

Editor’s note:  The following is extracted from The Fifteen Decisive Battles of the World from Marathon to Waterloo, by Sir Edward Creasy (published 1851) A broad expanse of plains, the Campi Catalaunici of the ancients, spreads far and wide around the city of Chalons, in the north-east of France. The long rows of poplars, through which the river Marne winds its way, and a few thinly-scattered villages, are almost the only objects that vary the monotonous aspect of the greater part of this region. But about five miles from Chalons, near the little hamlets of Chaps and Cuperly, the...

Beast Life: Incline Bench Press

The Incline bench press is a great shaping exercise. It’s great because chicks dig nice pecs. It’s also great because it can help you get over strength plateaus on your bench press. The trouble comes when gyms are limited on equipment. Most gyms will have at least one Incline Press bench. If not, grab an adjustable bench and bring it to the power rack. You will want to be careful with this press. It uses a lot more of your shoulders and can lead to injury if you go too hard. I suggest never going heavy. Stick to the...

Beggar’s Choice, Part III

Upon a jeweled chair sat the queen, who rose as they entered. Her large eyes shone with relief. Larvik was surprised...

What Makes A Good Firearm?

Editor’s Note: We have been after our buddy, Lupine Nobilis, to write us up his thoughts on finding the right firearm. He is a worldclass expert on the topic, and every single one of our MOTW regulars has learned a lot from him. He finally obliged us. After reading, I am sure you will be clammering for more from him. One of the biggest debates (aside from the dreaded 45acp vs 9mm) in the firearm world is what the definition of a good gun is.  If you ask 100 people, you’ll probably get 101 answers, and 90% of those...
