Thought that was perhaps akin to cow tipping at first...
Having Ted back, that would be awesome. "The Internet isn't a truck, it's a series of
Well, a person from Alaska controlled my mind for a while back in 2008, not that I was swayed over to her cause. But it was definitely on my mind for months at a stretch. "You've got to be kidding. From a helicopter?"
Ozzy's longevity you can chalk up to his Neanderthal lineage.
As for why the Empire subsequently declined, here's a handy list: 210 Reasons for the decline of the Roman Empire. No concrete in there, the Republic being brought to an end by overzealous monument building would be covered by "Hubris" though, I suppose.
