Awesomest History prof ever?

My Roman Civilization professor. He is just HILARIOUS! According to him, "That's what decline smells like."

I am inclined to agree.

That is a picture of the Roman Tetrarchs engaging in a little man-hugging. In statue form. (FYI, art at the height of the pax Romana and even before that back to the Republic, was WAY BETTER.) He said in class that some art historians would argue that this was just a stylistic development. He also said that while he likes art historians just fine...they're full of crap when they say that.

The newest member of the Google Wave family is...

Me. I have Google Wave and...I have no idea what to do with it. I mean, I kind of sort of understand it. It's like Gmail on steroids?

I do know that it's super-cool and I will have tons of fun exploring it! My inner-nerd is incredibly excited! :D
