The Circular Path

LeonidasAgain.jpg

Being asked why he had not made any use of written laws, he said, "Because those who are trained and disciplined in the proper discipline can determine what will best serve the occasion."
- Lycurgus, founder of the Spartan 'Constitution'

A series on ancient warriors considers the Spartans. They must have made terrible neighbours except, of course, when they made the best. More specific to our current travails is the Battle of Thermopylae, now fitting better into my head as the Hot Gates (love that Total War game-engine action).

If that is not enough 300 and, let's face facts, it isn't, some ancient Sparta resources will come in handy. Flea-readers with a masochistic streak might also consider this video diary, undertake the Circular Path and get buff; Spartan buff.

"Flea-readers with a masochistic streak."

Surely you jest!

I never jest when it comes to set theory.

I have to admit, I am actually taking part in a semi-300 inspired program now. I am supplementing my running with weights now that I have some in my basement.. Geeky and buff, thats my pointless goal.. I will be confident enough to buy some wife beater (I mean sleeveless) shirts and wear them while I play Ghost Recon and say things like "hoowah!"... Okay, no to the shirts.. but still, I could if I wanted to.

I had a brief, insane moment of suggesting a 300-style program so a select few Toronto-based Red Ensign bloggers... Though I admit if would be hilarious if a bunch of us turned up all buff for a blogapalooza.
