    [–] Ruins of ancient Sparta. In the background is an olive grove, followed by the town of modern Sparti, followed by the Taygetus mountain range. past_is_prologue 2 points ago in travel

    The ruins of the Spartan Acropolis is are kinda neat... But yeah, they don't take a lot of time to see. Looking at the theatre is cool. Seeing the scrape marks from the moving sets is interesting.

    In addition to Mystras, the helot city of Messine is worth checking out too.

    [–] Kofi Kingston Says Billy Graham Is Entitled To His Opinion, Doesn't Change That He's WWE Champion past_is_prologue 10 points ago in SquaredCircle

    I mean... He wasn't wrong. Dean was only really amazing when he was paired with someone amazing. If he had to carry the match with someone more vanilla than him it was a snooze fest.

    [–] Judge asks why Ottawa won’t leave Ontario alone as carbon-tax challenge continues past_is_prologue 12 points ago in canada

    Oliver Mowat was the Premier of Ontario for many years and John A. MacDonald's main antagonist when it came to federal-provincial jurisdictional issues.

    Mowat actually articled under MacDonald, and were pals before they eventually became bitter political enemies. Mowat was a brilliant legal mind, and served as Auditor General in addition to being Premier. If you're interested in Canadian constitutional history you'll get to know Mowat very well.

    I am actually of the mind that February's Family Day should be Oliver Mowat Day, but I digress.

    Yup. This is a story as old as Canada— in this matter who has jurisdiction? The Feds or the Provinces?

    Nah, it would be the other guys. Lead by the dude with the super hairy back.

    [–] What the interior attic space of Notre Dame looked like before the fire. Some of the oak beams date back to the 12 century. past_is_prologue 4 points ago in Firefighting

    The sanctuary in Notre Dame has flatscreens on the pillars so the congregation further back can see the front. Not to mention the hundreds of renovations on its history. Shit, the spire that fell was from the 1800s.

    Notre Dame wasn't finished in the 12th century and left at that. It has been evolving its entire life, and this fire is one more step in the evolution.

    [–] Canada's fighter jet tender competition (finally) takes off next month past_is_prologue 1 points ago in canada

    It is shocking to go back and read them. Imagine if someone with actual power had the mindset of, "Russia is no longer as threat, so let's buy Russian planes"

    Fucking yikes.

    [–] Why is conservative politics such a natural home for white supremacists? past_is_prologue -4 points ago in CanadaPolitics

    So she says things you don't like, so that makes her a useful idiot? Is she not allowed to have her own opinions? What a bizarre opinion.

    [–] 'This isn't a team sport': B.C. premier staying neutral on Alberta election race past_is_prologue 8 points ago in CanadaPolitics

    Honestly it might even give her a little bump if he denounced her as an "industrialists who only cares about oil" or some shit.

    [–] Ontarians don't support Doug Ford's anti-carbon tax campaign past_is_prologue 1 points ago in CanadaPolitics

    My fiancé and I were both fully prepared to vote NDP before watching the debates. Afterward we came away feeling that Wynne was the only adult in the room, and we were all fucked. Not to say it was a deciding event for people, but it was indicative of how things were gonna go.

    [–] Ontarians don't support Doug Ford's anti-carbon tax campaign past_is_prologue 3 points ago in CanadaPolitics

    It would have been much closer. I'm annoyed Singh went federal. I think he could have been a real influencer on the provincial scene.

    [–] Your favorite NXT tag team/superstar gets called up. What is their new name? past_is_prologue 181 points ago in SquaredCircle

    Then just "Patrick"

    He will wrestle in dark purple trunks, have no promos, and only wrestle on Superstars. Soon they'll start to wonder why this kid can't get over. He'll end up in a meaningless tag team with EC3 they'll call "PC3". They will job to "The New Bushwackers" (formerly Heavy Machinery) for eight straight months. Then they will be quietly released.

    [–] [Raw Spoilers] Tag Team moved to Raw past_is_prologue 2 points ago in SquaredCircle

    A cruise on Lake Minnetonka... Where you get drunk and watch football.

    [–] New name for [SPOILERS] past_is_prologue 181 points ago in SquaredCircle

    It's actually kind of impressive how sucky the name is.
