Vegetarian gladiators


The protein deficiency could explain the aggressive temperament. That and the smart remarks about form-fitting armour.

Hollywood has portrayed them as muscle-bound and handsome, but Austrian anthropologists have found evidence suggesting that Roman gladiators were fat vegetarians who bore scant resemblance to Russell Crowe.

This is actually to comment on ur blog on Shotgun. I am not sure how you think "The Gay Agenda" is an election issue. The hate legislation once it passes the senate will be law, so there is nothing we can do about that except argue it in the courts and I think we know who would come out on top. The only other issue is Gay Marriage and its not just conservatives against that. There are also many Liberals and a few NDP. btw ur blog comment section is the only route I could find to contact you.

Hi Mike, there is an email address through my "fighting Quaker" link on the top left of the blog. I am trying to keep email spam to minimum!

I like to keep comments on topic with the post here at the Flea but will leave your comment as it stands here for now. It is early days at The Shotgun so we will see if there will be comments or some other function at that end so that readers can get in on the conversation.
