The Crusades saved a large part of (if not all) western civilization/culture

It is often thought that the crusades were attempts by a growingly imperialist Europe to seize the Middle East for economic reasons as well as religious ones (namely conversion) . This however, is not the case. The crusades were intended to be a defensive campaign against a Muslim enemy (the Seljuk Turks) that had seized the holy land and were threatening Byzantium and the Byzantine empire.

In order to alleviate this boredom, I resort to these magical interactive pictures called "Video games". I have recently been playing a popular "moba" game called League of Legends.
