Sex increases population. [Mar. 28th, 2008|11:58 am]

[music |conversation about war]

Ancient Rome became the first city to reach a population of one million in 5 B.C. It would be more than eighteen centuries before the second such city, London, would reach that milestone in 1800.

Brett_Dunbar has informed me that Wikipedia disputes this. I wish my fact sites would be a little more reliable. lol.

"That appears not to be correct according to this wikipedia article Modelski in 2003 estimated that Alexandria reached one million about 100 BCE Rome reached that figure about 100, Chang'an (now Xi'an) was the next city to reach one million in about 700 then Baghdad in about 1000. Chandler in 1987 estimated the first city to pass one million was Baghdad in about 925. "

And a deleted Star Wars sex scene. lol. Wow. NSFW at all.

Now, see, that was just wrong. :)

For some reason, I'm not getting sound with youtube lately. I'll have to try to find out what's wrong...

I haven't had an issue with Youtube sound recently. What kind fo computer do you have? Have you tried clearing your cache? Sometimes that seems to cure just about everything that's wrong with my computer. lol. Silly machines.

And it's definitely wrong, but funny none the less. ;)

And all I can think of when I see it is Mara Jade, and how she was the Emperors "hand" in the extended Star Wars Universe, and what she probably did with the Emperor. *shudder* Poor dear.

Tenochtitlán (the Aztec city that is now Mexico City) is thought to have had over a million people when the Spanish captured it, too.

Your fact is probably correct for Europe, but not globally. It's only been a few centuries that Europe was a major part of the world. It used to be something of a backwater, well behind Asia.

Lame! That isn't a real sex scene but just parts of the different films someone 'shopped together.

Still pretty lol-worthy though.

Just remember to not fully rely on wikipedia. It's user-made after all, who knows if those people are actually correct? :)

Interesting though.
