    I'm sticking to real estate and teaching hockey. No way am I getting in a classroom these days. Teaching kids the real stuff, is hard. ;)

    Hannibal's career is worth reading up on. Far more than dragging elephants across the Alps to terrify the enemy.

    Seeing this stuff reminds me of just how little history there is here in this country. We find Native American artifacts, but they're nothing like this stuff.
