Our Georgian and Victorian ancestors probably celebrated Christmas with more modest wine consumption than we do today -- if the size of their wine glasses are anything to go by. Researchers have found that the capacity of wine glasses has increased seven-fold over the past 300 years, and most steeply in the last two decades as wine consumption rose.

I finally figured out why Final Fantasy VII's music is so good

Added: 13.12.2017 20:56 | 1 views | 0 comments

Destructoid: "Final Fantasy VII is twenty years old, and I still love it dearly. I remember poring over the game's early hours in my parent's basement, entranced by Midgar's neon lights and cyberpunk stylings. One of the most embarrassing moments in my young life involved my dad walking in on me, red-eyed and crying, after Aeris' now-infamous death and laughing before he walked back upstairs. In third grade, I lifted parts of FFVII's train graveyard sequence and used it for a school assignment. I'm not proud of that last point -- plagiarism is lame and all -- but you bet your butt my teacher was blown away. Despite all of those memories, it's Final Fantasy VII's music that sticks with me the most. The game's soundtrack is a sonic triumph; a collection as varied as it is dynamic. What other game can go from orchestral chanting to mellow, beachy bossa nova tunes with such grace?"
