Yeah, I told my son in that Gladiator fight that Crixus wasn't going to die unless they are going to re-write history.
I'm not sure history records why Spartucus and Crixus rebeled(other than the fact they are slaves) but having their women killed by the Romans in an underhanded way would be a good excuse to go postal.
Attempted troll/humor while discussing potential child abuse

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.
I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
