Or how to have a serious WTF moment while studying. :dummy:

So, here I was studying for the final exam of Ancient Classic History, about Rome. Chapter about the Gracchus...
And sudddenly, le wild EVIL ROMAN CAPITALISTS OF POTTERY APPEAR!!! TUN-TUN-TUUUUUUUN!!! :iconsupertrollplz: Yes, those nasty capitalists, bloody merchants, selling their Roman pottery and making money out of it! Those bloody burgesses!

When I read this I felt like 'Hu...?? o.O'
It's ANCIENT ROME! I mean... the author of that book could have called them «rich merchants» instead of... capitalists. No? 

Not to mention the 3-pages description of Sulla, the «fair haired man with piercing blue eyes». 

Anyway, reading about the «evil capitalists» (yes, the author says they're evil!) I couldn't help but recall all the lessons about the history of Rome and the banter between my friends Mateus, Diogo and me. And this makes so much sense now! :rofl:
Allow me to explain the exquisite imagination of Archaeology students:
-the rich/noblemen in Rome had this really, really big number of people around them, the clients, who depended on them, and who the rich/noblemen had to sustain. These clients repaid their lords with favours, such as working the land, supporting them in the people's tribune and going to vote with them.
-what is the first thing you think about Italy/Rome (besides pizza)?? MAFIA!! :la:

So, clients, mafia, evil capitalists...

Imagine a bling-bling Roman with a purple toga and sunglasses, surrounded by a large number of Roman peasents with machine-guns. The bling-bling Roman calls over one of the peasents and says (imagine a thick Italian accent):
'Gaius, I need you to make me a favour.'
'Yes, lord Gaius!' (because Romans were all named «Gaius» :iconmingplz: )
'Tiberius didn't help me in the senate. Go make him sleep with the garum.' (fish sauce :trollface: )
'Yes, lord Gaius. But... Gaius Tiberius, or Tiberius Gaius?'
'Tiberius Gaius!'



And this is why sometimes students use wikipedia... :|
