well yeah that's why i wanted to learn in the first place. surrealist stuff mainly, where translations are awkward and hard to find.

ugh i'm learning a language to read blatant nonsense. ;__;

The language itself is fun too, plus you get all the cool Roman history stuff with it.

That would probably help haha. I only barely care about Roman history.

I dislike Greek much more than Roman though. Socrates is cool though.

socrates was cool, he was a smartass punk, but people take him too seriously. plato was pretty lame. aristotle was boring as ****. what i like is the mythology, not the homer stuff, the really far out stuff with incest and spontaneous generation and psychoanalytical paradigms.

Should I go to a Phish show this summer for the purpose of science? Study the people that still go to Phish shows and all.

Rock and roll teacher talked about Rolling Stones today. Is it truth that Keith Richards is actually supposed to be called Keith Richard? Also, is it true that the Kinks think that god is from Venus or something? She also said that the punk movement of the 80s could be traced back to the Stones as well as heavy metal and rap.
