The Ask Rom Thread

Dear Ask Rom:

Please explain the ancient Romans' fascination with gladitorial events. Do you consider todays Italians' rabid support of football teams to be the natural successor to gladiators?

But tomorrow is new day and new chance. -- Alija

Is Chuck Norris alive?

Da volim CRNO-BELE,
Ja ponosno kazem svima,
Ja volim to slavno ime,
I divim se samo njima.
Na svetu nista lepse,
Ne moze da postoji,
Nego sto je nasa ljubav,
Prema CRNO-BELOJ boji.

Ljubav prema klubu,
Ne moze da prestane,
Dok zivim klicacu njemu,
Volim te Partizane.

In a Finnish Sauna, the women are tall and strike-dead gorgeous. In a regular sauna, it's a crap shoot.
