Tyrion's Favorite Wench: then why is there such a strong, common misconception of what we all believe to be true?


Same reason people think Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake" or that Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Has to do with what's presented as history, isn't always based on fact. Like Vikings wearing helmets with horns. Or that Attila the Hun was some bloodthirsty savage.

Tyrion's Favorite Wench: Oh, wow! Thanks a bunch!


No problem! I think it's one of the most interesting topics in antiquity.

The fall of the Roman Empire. Plunged us into the Dark Ages and dropped the advancement of man over a thousand years.

Don't fight the Civil War.

Yes there, are some serious possible repercussions, the non-retarded part of the US, aka, the North, West Coast & much of the Mid-West would have to deal with a farktarded South that would've likely mirrored South Africa.

Also, I would be the South would've thrown in with Germany in WWII, another possible disaster. But you know what, to be rid of the pathetic, sad, vicious, cruel, moronic, assholish, politics that I now have to deal with as a Federal Republic that includes the stupidest human beings on the face of the planet (ie, southerners), I'd take my mother farking chances.

namatad: Go back to the day before Jesus gets arrested and tell him to run for the hills!


According to the Book of Judas, Jesus asked Judas to turn him in in order to complete his teachings and free him from the mortal body he was trapped in so he could return to heaven.

But this gospel and many others didn't win the "Nazareth's Got Talent" contest and get included in the bible some guys wanted everyone to see.


If I had my pick, I would prevent the burning of the Library of Alexandria.

Ya I know, :) I just liked your post frankly, though it is hard to tell on Fark since there are so many pricks quick on the quote button.
