I've been meaning to post this for quite a while,
but I've been lax in doing so.
for my D&D buddies a few videos:
one that asks the age old question,
“can you go to the toilet in medieval armor?”
The second one covers misconceptions about inns, accommodations and taverns in medieval times.
These are interesting,
but I'm not sure if I'm going to do that level of detail when running my “every-two-week” D&D game.
This last video is mind blowing (at least to me)—fast food in ancient Rome.
It's odd to think that “fast food” is as old as Rome—MCROMVLVS anyone?
Roman Empire fast food.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
