    Sure, I'll just give Caecilius a ring.
    I would prefer to see the return of Caligula, and not just because he was a kinky git who knew how to have a good time

    But what did the Romans ever do for us?
    Your right!

    But apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    Romans were backwards compared to the progressive Greeks. Just look at Roman mathematics for example.

    A real philistine culture.

    Did they achieve a lot?

    I am not convinced. The more I know about the classics the more I see how they held Europe back - not propelled it forward.

    What do you mean?

    Holocaust.
    My great-grandfather always said the Russians where much worse than the Germans, as apparently the russians did not quite know what a watch was and also had a tendency to urinate in places where they later slept. He described them as animals. Meh.

    It's a good thing he never met the Nazis then.

    Oh he did. He said they were jolly fellows. Well not really, but at least they were human. Apparently. Also the Russians happened to steal half of our country, which is now in Belarus and the Ukraine. Most distressing stuff.

    The last time I checked the people of Belarus were Belarussian and the people of Ukraine were Ukrainian.

    Yes but half of Belarus and a third of the Ukraine belonged to Poland before the war, also the Lithuanian capital, Vilnius was 50% Polish before the war whereas Lithuanians constituted like 10% of the populations. Also Lviv, currently in the Ukraine is in essence a Polish city and was the 3rd polish city before the war. Russians stole it. Also they facilitated the holocaust, not really stopped it.

    Do you know where the Romans got the IDEA of a civilisation from?
    If anything, we should bring back the Egyptian Empire.

    I used to end my arguments like that when I was 12 too, so don't worry about it, as soon as you drop the absurd levels of ignorance you have, you'll feel better.

    Remember, you're probably part Russian(or East Slavic in general) due to the mass rape they commited in Poland - now wouldn't that be ironic? :rolleyes:

    Actually I can trace my ancestry back to the 16-17th century with relative ease. No russians really. Also russians aren't fully slavic at all they have high amounts of finnic and mongol admixtures.

    Also you're a 16 or so year old who idolises one of the greatest mass murderers in human history. You're clearly mentally unstable I simply refuse to argue with people like you anymore. Also you're probably a peasant.

    Don't let my UCAS application fool you, I'm far from 16,

    Yes, I'm a peasant, who happens to live in one of the biggest cities in Europe, I'd say I'm a pretty noble peasant wouldn't you? I idolise the greatest leader of the 20th century and one of the greatest of all time, who happened to save your joke of a country, I think you could make a little more effort by claiming that he's one of the greatest mass murderers in human history, wouldn't you say?

    Refuse if you wish to, it's simply a sign of weakness, however I'll let you get on with your trolling, you're not worth anymore of my time - am I not merciful?

    Knowing your comportment on TSR, your parents are very wise not to tell you the truth, or you'd end up cutting your wrists if they told you about your Russian blood.
