[music |"Look No One Knows Yet".. but not in English.]

The Mongol conquerer Timur the Lame (1336-1405), whom Christopher Marlowe called Tamburlaine, played Polo with the skulls of those he had killed in battle. Timur left records of his victories by erecting 30-foot-high pyramids made of the severed heads of his victims.

And interesting. The Beatles, for if they had been born in India.

The translations are my favorite part.

LOL. Right?

I wonder what he used in place of cream and sugar?

Oh God. Why did I even let my mind wander there!?!

Now I'm in need of a massive mind cleanse.

Shiiit.

I guess there is no better way to be a conquerer than to have your slogan be "Give up now, or I'll play polo with your head!". I can only imagine how he would impress the ladies ("This is my favorite pyrimid, here, I made it when I invaded China. And this one is very dear to me, see how it tilts just a little to the right? Because of that, the skull on top belongs to the lead foreman - what a funny guy. And over here is my garden. I have the best fertalizer, would you like to know what is in it?"...)

The Indian beatles rocked. I loved their little guitar dance - I can only imagine how many old 1950 Elvis movies someone had to watch to come up with those dances...

You know, I think there's men and women that are like this all over the place, but luckily it takes a lot of factors to get to the point where they commit this kind of atrocity. I'm sure they're doing awful things on smaller scales.

He wouldn't mess his own hands up with it. He'd much rather take other peoples sons, husbands and fathers to do it for him..
