    We lost ours three years ago and it still hits me sometimes. Our new Dobie is just as much of a ridiculous love-bug, but he's not Spencer.

    If we're going to go by TV, and proportional populations, I'd feel a lot safer in NYC than in the English countryside.

    Midsomer? Fuck me! There's been like two or three murders a week there for the last twenty years or so. It's a wonder the place isn't depopulated entirely.

    One. One guy was shot after he tried to run a barricade then reached for a gun while FBI agents had the drop on him.

    Not coincidentally it was the guy who had repeatedly and publicly stated that he eoulldn't be taken alive.

    "The Dark Ages" was originally used as a catchall term for the middle ages, or the period from the fall of the Roman empire (~500 CE) to the beginning of the renaissance (~1500 CE, although more accurately the late 14th century). As more evidence was uncovered for the breadth and depth of cultural and technological innovation in the late muddle ages, the term began to be used (as you said) to describe only the early middle ages. Nowadays scholars avoid the phrase "dark ages" altogether as it is unnecessarily pejorative, but it is still widely used outside of academia to refer to the entirety of the middle ages.

    Like I said; we can do this if you want but it seems kind of silly to split hairs in this particular thread.

    Edit: and yes, this all applies only to western Europe. Because duh.

    Better to plan for living to 100 and not make it than to plan on dying at 70 and living to 100.

    Just sayin'.

    Unless you have some unhealthy habits living to be over 100 will probably not be uncommon for people in your age group. You should probably start planning for that.

    The height (or peak) of the Roman empire was during the period of the "Five Good Emperors" (Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius, Marcus Aurelius), or between 96 and 180 CE. The dark ages are generally considered to correspond to the period 500 - 1500 CE.

    But hey, what's the point of getting all didactic in a thread about 420 and 69, right?
