Reg: "If you want to join the People's Front of Judea, you have to really hate the Romans."

Roman Head from Mexico

Roman Figurine Found in Mexico: Studies in Archaeological Context

That little "roman" head from precolumbian mexico

The Roman Head from Tecaxic-Calixtlahuaca, Mexico: A Review of the evidence

The "Roman Figurine" Supposedly Excavated at Calixtlahuaca

Tiny Roman Bust Shows Pre-Columbian Contact With Mexico


The determination that it is specifically Roman from circa AD 200 therefore relies entirely on the artistic evaluations of Heine-Geldern, Boehringer and Andreae, since the TL age range is consistent with many other pre-Columbian possiblities. (A more precise TL date given in the Hristov and Genovés article, viz. 1780 ± 400 B.P., was based on a preliminary calculation made from the same test results, but should now be disregarded in light of Wagner (2000) and Schaaf and Wagner (2001). See Hristov and Genovés (2001) for further details and a reply to other objections to the find.)

Even granting the possibility that a Roman ship might have reached the New World 1800 years ago, how could a relic of such a visit have ended up in a barely pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican burial? Hristov and Genovés cite two dozen instances in which clearly older Mesoamerican objects appear in later burials. The most dramatic of these is a 3000-year-old greenstone Olmec mask that was found in a 500-year-old Aztec burial offering inside the Great Temple of Mexico-Tenochtitlan.


What a relic was doing in an ancient ship bound to the American continent? It had no business there. If you are going to make long trips you certainly don't take unnecessary things with you especially if you are aboard a ship made with insufficient ancient technological means.

It was probably not aboard a ship. It was probably made there, a self portrait, or either picturing someones beloved relative, like his father. He wears a hat belonging to the native fashion of Delian fishermen. This fashion predates even the Roman era.

Reality must be even more stranger than we can imagine.

It seems that peoples settled North America far earlier than the general public believes. Read AMERICA, BC by Barry Fell and check out America's Stonehenge [Mystery Hill, NH]. The Newport, RI Viking Tower? Likely nothing to do with Vikings who were not much for building anything worthwhile except their slave trade [ what, you thought they raided farmers to steal sheep?]. It was built much earlier. Cloumbus, Brendan, Vikings....all late comers.

Brian: "Have I got a big nose, Mum?"

Brian's mother: "Stop thinking about sex!"

Brian: "I wasn't!"

Brian's mother: "You're always on about it. "Will the girls like this? Will the girls like that? Is it too big? Is it too small?""

----------------------------------------------

Brian: "Excuse me. Are you the Judean People's Front?"

Reg: "***k off! We're the People's Front of Judea"

Thats what it looks like to me.

Actually he was referring to THIS:

Brian: Excuse me. Are you the Judean People's Front?

Reg: ***k off!

Brian: What?

Reg: Judean People's Front! We're the People's Front of Judea! Judean People's Front! Cuh!

Francis: Splitters.

Brian: Can I... join your group?

Reg: Nah, **ss off.

Brian: I didn't want to sell this stuff, it's only a job. I hate the Romans as much as anybody!

Judith: Are you sure?

Brian: Oh, dead sure! I hate the Romans already!

Reg: Listen. If you really wanted to join the P.F.J., you'd have to really hate the Romans.

Brian: I do!

Reg: Oh, yeah, how much?

Brian: A lot!

Reg: [brief pause] Right. You're in. Listen. The only people we hate more than the Romans are the ***king Judean People's Front.

Stan: Yeah, the Judean People's Front.

Reg: Yeah. Splitters.

Stan: And the Popular Front of Judea.

Reg: Yeah. Splitters.

Stan: And the People's Front of Judea.

Reg: Yea... what?

Stan: The People's Front of Judea. Splitters.

Reg: We're the People's Front of Judea!

Stan: Oh. I thought we were the Popular Front.

Reg: People's Front!

Francis: Whatever happened to the Popular Front, Reg?

Reg: He's over there. [points to a lone man]

Reg, Stan, Francis, Judith: SPLITTER!


PS: I wonder which will come first: The mods close this thread or I quote the entire movie

Brian: I'm not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand? Honest!

Girl: Only the true Messiah denies His divinity!

Brian: What? Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right, I AM the Messiah!

Followers: He is! He is the Messiah!

Brian: Now, ***k off!

Arthur: Er, how shall we ***k off, O Lord?

I'm still looking for the one you referred to, but for now this should tide you over.....

Sir Bedevere: There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.

Peasant 1: Are there? Oh well, tell us.

Sir Bedevere: Tell me. What do you do with witches?

Peasant 1: Burn them.

Sir Bedevere: And what do you burn, apart from witches?

Peasant 1: More witches.

Peasant 2: Wood.

Sir Bedevere: Good. Now, why do witches burn?

Peasant 3: ...because they're made of... wood?

Sir Bedevere: Good. So how do you tell whether she is made of wood?

Peasant 1: Build a bridge out of her.

Sir Bedevere: But can you not also build bridges out of stone?

Peasant 1: Oh yeah.

Sir Bedevere: Does wood sink in water?

Peasant 1:No, no, it floats!... It floats! Throw her into the pond!

Sir Bedevere: No, no. What else floats in water?

Peasant 1: Bread.

Peasant 2: Apples.

Peasant 3: Very small rocks.

Peasant 1: Cider.

Peasant 2: Gravy.

Peasant 3: Cherries.

Peasant 1: Mud.

Peasant 2: Churches.

Peasant 3: Lead! Lead!

King Arthur: A Duck.

Sir Bedevere: ...Exactly. So, logically...

Peasant 1: If she weighed the same as a duck... she's made of wood.

Sir Bedevere: And therefore...

Peasant 2: ...A witch!

I think this is the one you are talking about....

Dennis: What I object to is you automatically treatin' me like an inferior.

Arthur: Well, I am king.

Dennis: Oh, king, eh? Very nice. And how'd you get that, then? By exploiting the workers! By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society! If there's ever going to be any progress--


Dennis: We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as sort-of-executive officer for the week--

Arthur: Yes.

Dennis: But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting--

Arthur: Yes, I see.

Dennis: By a simple majority, in the case of purely internal affairs--

Arthur: [getting bored] Be quiet.

Dennis: But by a two thirds majority, in the case of more major--

Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!

Dennis' Mother: Order, eh? Who does he think he is?

Arthur: I am your king!

Dennis' Mother: Well I didn't vote for you.

Arthur: You don't vote for kings!

Dennis' Mother: How'd you become king, then?

Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, [Angel chorus begins singing in background] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. [Angel chorus ends] That is why I am your king!

Dennis: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Arthur: Be quiet!

Dennis: You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

Arthur: Shut up!

Dennis: I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Arthur: Shut up! Will you shut up?! [Grabs Dennis and shakes him]

Dennis: Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system!

Arthur: Shut up!

Dennis: Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being repressed!

No, no, no. He means this one:

Dennis (who is 37, not old and not a woman): "Listen, mush, strange women lying in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not some farcical aquatic ceremony. I mean, if I went round proclaimin' myself emperor 'cause some moisten bint had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away..."

Constitutional Peasant.

But from Brian:

Brian: "Look, you don't need to follow anybody, you're all individuals."

Crowd: "YES, YES, WE ARE ALL INDIVIDUALS"

Lone man: "I'm not."

edit: beat me to it. Just.


edit again: and you forgot the kicker...

Deins: "Now we see the violence inherent in the system, come and see the violence inherent in the system!"

Arthur: "Bloody peasant!"

Dennis: "Ooh, what a giveaway. 'd'you hear that? Did you see him repressin' me? You saw him repressin' me, didn't you.
