  1. Re: French cops ask for Roma Gypsies to be evicted from France.

    How did Roma gypsies live in the ex soviet regimes?Did anynone manage to integrate this people?
  2. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    He had a few good scenes, but I think the main issue is not the actor but the way the character has been written.I think him and Cersei are the most clear examples of what is wrong with the series.
  3. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    I am sorry but even by modern time standards that is not rape, there is a reason rape was never mentioned for that scene in this forum or in the hundreds of threads back at westeros.org

  4. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Rape in the books?Definitly not, as I said before Cersei's only concern is that they might get caught.



    It doesn't sound to me as a woman getting raped...

    Re: SPQR 2767 aniversary of Roma

    Too bad I couldn't be there today.The real sad thing though, is Rome's state in the last few years, a city in decline :(
  6. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    The Thenns are disappointing because they made them too clearly as bad guys, really dumbed down/cheap.Considering this fact I suspect they will cut much of what happens in ADWD because it won't work...
  7. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    I think they want the Jaime/Cersei scene to be ambiguous, it was poorly done though and out of character for Jaime (as it was him killing his cousin) while it really wasn't for Cersei, at least the...

    Now that the purple wedding is done, will they ever address who was that put the hit on Bran in the first season?I think cutting the whole Tyrion figures it out, feels gravely...

    Fine...but come on...Cersei jealous of Brienne?That was soap opera tv.

    They definitely want to portay her as sneaky, considering all of her spies and fake smiles in season 1.Still the point stands with Oberyn, no one who plays the "game" should be so blunt and in this...

    Sansa is the exception, everyone else is older in the show.Anyway, that is the reason why the characters are growing up so much in the show, puberty, indeed the timeline is basically the same, a year...
  12. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Good episode.

    However I didn't get why they changed the motive for Florent's burining, IIRC in the books he was burned for treason.Perhaps they really want to make Stannis into a villain.
  13. Re: Game of Thrones: TV Series - Season 4 (Book spoilers in tags with warning)

    Good episode, I am still not conviced of having Jaime arrive before the wedding and Jon meeting Slynt and Thorne so early.
  14. Re: The most influential person of history..

    Rome was bound to be ruled by one man anyway, just considering this severly undermines Augustus over Caesar.
  15. Re: The most influential person of history..

    1)You have to understand that the campaign in gaul was a terribly hard campaign, if Caesar is defeated Rome could be very well incapable of conquering Gaul.Might be someone else conquers it a few...
  16. Re: The most influential person of history..

    Correct but Caesar paved the way for Augustus.Furthermore, Caesar's legacy is actually about getting Rome in central Europe, would the world be so influenced by the west if Rome stayed under the alps?

  19. Re: Direct Link Between the Roman Saturnalia Festival and the Medieval Feast of Fools?

    I believe so, I mean festivals and even figures passed on from pagan Rome to christian Rome, look at lupercalia.
  20. Re: Leak of Turkish attack plans for Syria prompts youtube blocking

    Agreed but in this case (Turkey vs Greece) the idea of war is very very ludicrous.

  28. Re: A forgotten holocaust ---- The Mass Killings of Halabja in 1988

    I wonder, Saddam had further plans to persecute Kurds or the community living in Northern Iraq was fairly pacified (subjected)?Did Saddam continue with the killings between post 1 gulf war and 2?

    Viking fleets had good swift ships excellent for raiding, even inland by using rivers, but they had no business fighting big naval battles.
