Have you ever looked at the past and thought it'd have been to cool to live then? First glance makes it seem like a simpler time, quieter, and cleaner. You could lounge around eating grapes in your long flowing gown. Reality says, oh, hail no.
It wasn't pretty.
I'm definitely all about the 21st Century. I'm right where I want to be, and nothing made that clearer than a day spent in the ruins of Ancient Pompeii. And my take has nothing at all to do with the volcanic ending.
- Streets doubled as sewers
- Pottery doubled as toiletry
- People doubled as slaves
- Slaves doubled as livestock and commodities
- Livestock doubled as a hookup in a pinch
