    Good question! A lot of people in Rome in those hours was in your same condition .. not good moments for sure.

    After a brutal and pretty arrogant speech in Senate, where he had arrived surrounded by a lot of fully equipped & heavily armoured Praetorians, Caracalla .. "After making these statements at the top of his voice, in a towering rage, he glared balefully at his brother's friends and returned to the palace, leaving most of the senators pale and trembling."

    Now please don't tell me that you too are pale & trembling like those presumptuous old morons, trembling under their toga praetexta!

    No fear my dear Cookiegod, even the most brutal arrogant bastards need their moments ..

    Herodian writes:

    "At the halfway point he (Caracalla) stopped to relieve himself; ordering his escort to ride off, he went apart with a single attendant. All the horsemen (German Bodyguards, in practice, ancestors of the Waffen SS) turned aside and withdrew for some distance, respecting the emperor's modesty.

    But when Martialis (Centurion of the Guard, whose brother had just been unfairly executed by Caracalla), who was looking for just such an opportunity, saw Caracalla alone, he ran toward him as if the emperor had summoned him by a gesture to question him or receive some information. Standing over Caracalla after he had uncovered himself, Martialis stabbed the emperor from behind with a dagger he had concealed in his hand. The blow under the shoulder was fatal,
    and Caracalla died, unsuspecting and undefended.

    When the emperor fell, Martialis leaped upon his horse and fled. .."

    We may say that for once, even poo played a fundamental role in support of mankind and its freedom!

    Can I just mention how proud I am of that screen I just posted?
    He's got the freeze effect on him! That's like a 3% chance with my blade. He got it with the last hit right before surrendering. Does the "no cutscenes"-rule for GPOTW still apply in such situations? :O Cuz that's perfection.

    After seeing how fast people were to submit the last couple of times I decided I had to ninja it this time. No matter the cost. I would refresh constantly until this thread was up. I would set aside my life and dedicate myself entirely to this goal.

    ... Then I kinda forgot about it, until Derc alerted me that the thread was up.

    Well, if you can't impress with quality, coming first is better than not coming at all.

    It's a big mess!

    Do you know that old tale about those guys born in chains in a cave, who look at the shadows cast on the back wall by a light coming from behind them that they can't turn to see, so that they think those shadows are real and that what happens on the back wall is also all the real world they need? OK, this is more or less the situation in which we are involved here! But .. it's not that bad!

    Hey Cookiegod, going off your GPOTW submission and other Witcher memes, I figured you'd like this:


    I saw it on Reddit yesterday.


    Edit: Oh yea I'll write this down so i hopefully won't forget. I've gotta find my "stripper Geralt" screenshot, you'll like that as well. idk where I saved it.

    If someone has to give me bad news, I'd prefer it to happen with such a mask.
    Stripper Geralt probably made more money than as a Witcher.
