Vagalinski noted that the discovery was made in the Cloaca Maxima sewer, where archaeologists hardly expected to find anything.

Ahh, the husband of Incontinentia Buttocks!

Kind of a long name, do they shorten it to a word or two in daily use or go by the full sentence?

In 2000 years, people are going to be excavating New England and wondering why there are so many Christopher Columbus and Robert E. Lee statues resting on old lake beds.

From wiki: "Most scholars derive "Hermes" from Greek ἕρμα (herma),[14] "stone heap."[3]: 177 "

This is for strictly mildly interesting material. If it's too interesting, it doesn't belong. If it's not interesting, it doesn't belong.

This is obviously an objective criteria, so the mods are always right. Or maybe mildly right? Ahh.. what do we know?

Just post some stuff and don't spam.
