Ya know. I actually drenched the gravel ground of a Roman gladiator's arena with blood once.
It's a true story. Happened during a school trip in Italy.
I fell down on my butt and cut my hand on the pebbles while my friend and I were charging at each other.
A Latin university class walked into the arena at this exact moment and laughed at me, which I personally interpret as Roman people cheering me on.
It was a glorious day indeed.
@A pet named Steve, a glorious day for APNS
@A pet named Steve, how long does it take to get to Italy? That's a dope school trip.
@sploot, if you'd go to the very top of Italy from where I live, it'd take like 9 hours by car. We went to Sorrento by plane from a bit further away, I think it took like 2 hours
@A pet named Steve, ah cool. I googled it, looks like a gorgeous field trip. My class went to a downtown museum once 🤣
@sploot, yeah we're lucky in Europe that the countries are so close together haha, we took a few trips abroad. For the last trip we could choose between Sylt (German Island), france or Sorrento/Naples, but tbh Italy seemed like the coolest of the three
As someone that spent a day in gladiator school when visiting Rome can confirm
Guys wait... This is illegal
I was just watching the hbo series Rome where this happens
At first I thought dude in the corner, Ponchius Laviticus, had a straight up peg leg :^] .....then I zoomed in =;(
