Epik Fails – Season 5!

What Year Is It?! - Robin Williams (Jumanji)

Epik Fails of History returns!

History of the World Abridged

Yes that’s right, for those of you who are still actually reading my ramblings about historical failures and the absurdities of human existence, I am returning from a long absence to continue fighting the good fight – er, blogging the good blog?

For the two of you out there who are wondering why I haven’t posted since November, I actually have a very good reason: I’ve been co-writing a book series! (more details on that to come, stay tuned!) I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the years, if it wasn’t for you, I would’ve stopped blogging years ago – and if I had given up, I wouldn’t have had this amazing opportunity, so seriously, thank you.

I especially want to give a shout out to my Patreon supporters (Daniel Crews, Ashley Sgromo, Justin Ache and Ben Thompson) – your financial support has allowed me to afford to keep the site going when I was going through some tough times. I also want to acknowledge David Kowalski, Chris Carroll, James Lester, Neil Sindicich, and Damian Fox. – I never would’ve gotten here without you.

Erik Slader - self portrait in spaceAs for the blog, got some new articles in the works in the coming months: Presidential Pros and Cons – Part 4, The Wrath of Genghis Khan, Top 5 Viking Sagas, The Legend of the 47 Ronin, The Fall of Rome, Tulip Mania, The Opium Wars, The Peloponnesian Wars, the Crimean War,  Operation: Valkyrie, Spartacus, Richard the Third, Prohibition, the Great Depression, the California Gold Rush, Shootout at the Ok Coral, Alexander the Great – Part 2 and The Golden Age of Piracy – Part 3! – plus a lot of other crazy stuff you might not have heard of before.

In other words: Epik Fails of History will return…
