A message from Erik Slader…
I started this blog in the summer of 2012 as an attempt to illustrate that history is chock-full of (hilarious) cautionary tales of (epic) failure. Since then it has evolved into a very passionate undertaking to educate the world through humor. I believe if we know where we come from we can chart a better course to where we’re going.
To date I’ve compiled about 40 articles between work and school. Each of which takes an average of 30 hours from conception to completion. Research for these articles often includes a trip to the library followed by many hours of reading, note taking and (gluten-free) beer drinking. These essays are written based on research cultivated from several unbiased sources, and then injected with a high-quality dose of hilarity. Each and every article is then subjected to extensive scrutiny by editing elves prior to posting onto the inter-webs. Once completed the article is then drafted onto a WordPress Scroll, rolled into a bottle and then thrown into the ocean of social media for all to enjoy.
