It's all about timing. The volcano hit the day before trash day.
Two days later and we would be marveling at their tidiness.

Also apparently the people of Pompeii apparently favored McDonalds over Starbucks, which is never a good sign.

First off, Pompeii hasn't been fully excavated. It is quite possible their garbage dumping site hasn't been located yet. Second off, if these are the same tombs I've seen then yea, you can see the graffiti on some of them. However, I wouldn't necessarily assume the trash found in these tombs implied Pompeiians were pigs, Romans believed in sharing their meals with their dead. Could explain why animal bones and broken pottery were found. Anyway, just my two cents.

In reading the graffiti from this site (new window), it seems Pompeii had a problem with people dropping deuces right outside other people's doors.

Here's a poem from Catullus, often called the greatest poet in the Golden Age of Latin poetry. Humans have been vulgar and fun all throughout history, even the boring parts you slept through in school.

I will sodomize you and skull-f*&^k you,
C*&ksucker Aurelius and bottom-man Furius,
You who think that I'm a pussy
Because of my delicate verses.
It's right for the devoted poet
To be chaste himself, but it's not
Necessary for his verses to be so.
Verses which then have taste and charm,
If they are delicate and sexy,
And when they can incite an itch,
And I don't mean for boys, but in
Those hairy old men who can't get their d$#ks up.
You, because you have read of my thousand kisses,
You think I'm a pussy?
I will sodomize you and skull-f$#k you.

I just a documentary on Pompeii. It might have been one of the Sex in the Ancient World series. One of the main thrusts (Hee!) was that Pompeii wasn't as sex crazed as we thought. Sure, there were brothels everywhere, but that was common for back then. They were also starting to return to the old Roman morals.

They showed the wall of gym/bathhouse where patrons would store their clothing in little cubicles. Above the cubicles were numbers, but then they discovered that the numbers were painted over sexual pictures. Each cubicle was a different sex position, and the guy narrating the show didn't know if it meant that prostitution also happened at the baths, or if it was just a clever way to get the customers to remember where their clothes were.

"Drusus, where did I put my toga?"
"Cato, you blind ass, it's under the picture with the girl on top!"

I have been trying to remember this from college for ages! I remember the professor pointing out how clever it was, because Catullus berates his critics for confusing the poem's speaker with the poet, while simultaneously threatening them as the speaker.

Also, skullf*ck!

Personally, I think Herculaneum is a much better site to see than Pompeii. If you're in the L.A area and want something cheap to do, go visit the Getty Villa. They are the only antiquity museum in the US and you can see artifacts from Pompeii and Herculaneum.
