[quote]My little girl turns 2 in December. We were there for the birth and wife got to cut the cord (I wasn't allowed in the room, and gladly accepted that). I wouldn't change it for the world. As far as she knows I am her daddy and my wife is her momma. I always wondered what it would be like and i...

re: Ides of March: Caesar's Death Good or Bad? - donut
[quote]The chaos had to end, and Augustus was the one who realized what it would take to restore order. Unlike Caesar, he put full effort into his tyranny, without disguising it as something it was not. That was what was needed at the time, not Julius Caesar's contradictory fantasy of maintaining th...

re: Ides of March: Caesar's Death Good or Bad? - donut
First off the reason for the assassination was to "save the Republic", but all it did was seal the fate of the republic as they knew it. In reality the Republic the assassins were hoping to be restored had died hundreds of years before. By the time Caesar died Rome had endured at least 3 civil war...

re: Octavius (Augustus) Caesar: Cruel sniveling coward or great Roman (or both)? - donut
[quote]Incorrect. The Gauls were constantly threatening Rome and had invaded just a half century before. These were the wars fought by Marius. At the time Caesar invaded, there was a lot of fighting between Rome's ally states and those seeking to expand their territory, which at the time of the inva...

re: History question: how would the world had been different if Alexander had lived? - donut
What's really interesting is that it seems that some of his plans upon returning home were to look westward toward Italy. Since Rome was just a local power at the time it would have been interesting to see if they would have been able to stop his expansion. This theory is questionable since his or...
