  2. My understanding was that the writing started to keep tabs on the taxes. It was code that was kept "secret" for whatever purpose. The earliest texts were little more then Bob owes 20 sheep. Of course as is the case with anything, once the concept is out there others think of it too. It is thought that the Noah myth was actually sumerian in orgin and it was a flood of the Tigri and Euphrates. Of course there are other hypothosies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holocene_Impact_Working_Group The use of money however was not new. That concept has existed for a very long time before. The actual coinage though was first exemplifed by the sumerians. what also needs to be pointed out, is that the examples we have of art and writing and such exist because there was a concentration of them. Which implies a diversified economy, political stability, and a decently large population. Thus we generally see these items from the height of the civiliazation. Additionally, the desert environment helps. On of the difficulties of reseaching Norse civilization is they made their settlements from wood, which decays in wet environments like the Baltic. Similar is true for other celtic tribes, native americans, etc. The whole reason we know some of what happened to the Anazazi Indians is because they lived in Arizona. Anyway, just some thoughts.
  3. There is also the Exotic factor. An old college friend stated on day that a buddy of his from high school moved to miami. He was a skinny pasty white boy. Couldn't get a date in town to save his life. Goes to Miami, Hot latin girls were hanging off him. I got hit on more in Jamaica than anywhere else. Shanghi girls love American men. sometimes when you are in the culture you can see what others do from outside.
  4. I wouldn't exactly call it a translation. Peregrine is also the name of a falcon. So I....created a meaning from it that worked for me. Glad you like it

  6. she is AWESOME! and very high energy.
  7. Ooh, Latin scholar eh? It does indeed. "Night traveller" or "night wanderer" is how I translate it. See. I saw Nyx and thought this. http://www.eve-wiki.net/index.php?title=Nyx Then when I actually looked it up. I got something more like Night Falcon or Night Hawk. Which triggered this thought. http://eve.wikia.com/wiki/Nighthawk Stupid EVEonline.
  8. Church profits are up every time we raise this arbitrary number.
  9. that is a very candid and frank piece of work Heretic. Well said.
  10. banned in less than 5 responses.
  11. I actually wonder if in 1000 years they will still say the earth is 6000 years old.
