Playing “God” courtesy of our technological knowledge and “toys”. Do you know what’s considered the first science fiction novel ever? Frankenstein by Mary Shelley in 1818.

Well, I might have said the exact …

Is the Walking Dead Our Modern-Day Shakespeare?   Okay, after this blog post I will impose a one year ban on myself for using Shakespeare in any blog, but I had to. Today the reading of the works of Shakespeare is no longer a requirement in most American high schools anymore and in the original Elizabethan English of the late sixteenth …
