miss diminutive: But that haircut.....


And Angelina Jolie with that horrendous accent. She sounded like a god damn Romanian gymnast for crying out loud.

And Anthony Hopkins telling us what happened instead of showing us. Holy shiat was that movie terrible.

Really, Alexander's life can't be done in one movie. It really needs to be an HBO mini-series with a massive budget, because there's a lot of fighting.

StoPPeRmobile: JasonOfOrillia: I have this idea that the Macedonians were rubes at best, barbarians at worst, for all their Hellenistic pretensions.  I heard one definition of 'Barbarian' as someone whose culture doesn't survive contact with civilization and when Alexander the Great conquered Persia he, apparently, began assuming the trappings of the Persians.  The implication is that the Hellenistic culture to which he and his Macedonians pretended was weaker than Persian culture that they rolled over.

Anyways, don't judge me too harshly, I'm three pints in.

Oh look, this again.

You sound like you are from a broke country.


My country is flush.  But maybe that's because our pension obligations are covered.

Gunny Highway: Active introvert: Um.. this is not new news. It was long believed he contracted a bacterial infection that he got from drinking from a contaminated cup. Also, he may have drank it knowing it would get him sick because he was still not over the lost of his lover.

Read the article.


But, huff po...

the first time machine was powered by a blind three legged mule.

wouldn't be the first in that region/time to die via wine-related mishap. One thing on Caligula I was watching a while back hypothesized that he went all nutters thanks to the lead from their jars leaching into the wine.
