AbCation! [Jan. 6th, 2008|11:11 am]

YAY! LOLCat History. ;) Feel free to share your favorite macro so we can celebrate this internet sensation.

A young Julius Caesar was kidnapped by Pirates in the year 78 bce. He was held on the island of Pharmacusa for six weeks until a ransom was paid.

Ten Years later, Rome passed a bill allowing Pompey to stamp out piracy. He assembled a fleet of 270 ships and swept through the Mediterranean. The campaign climaxed in a major sea battle off the coast of Anatolia. Ten thousand pirates were killed, four hundred ships captured and many more destroyed.

This campaign resulted in piracy in the Mediterranean being effectively wiped out until the sixteenth century when the Algerian Pirate Lord Barbarossa united Algeria and Tunisia under the Ottoman sultanate and funded his regime by piracy.

That, as usual, is fascinating. I think you should write books (unless that's what you do already).

I love that video. It's all professional with "experts" testimony. Hehe. LOLCat history ftw. <3

I wish I had a fave to share, but there are just too many that are too funny. I couldn't narrow it down..

And for some reason, I think ancient Roman pirates would be really hot. I mean, if they could pull off a good looking guy a la Jack Sparrow-esque, plus the ancient's tendency to run around in little to no clothing consisting of thin (usually white, which we all know what happens to when mixed with water) robes....

Sorry, I got wayyy sidetracked there... xD

I thought it was hysterical. Glad you enjoyed it. ;)

And you know what? No apologies necessary. If one's gonna get sidetracked and take me with them, I prefer it's a route like that. hehe. Yumm..

I tried to post my two favourite lolcats- one a hamster, but the pix just wouldn't go, so i emailled them to you at your email address on the front of your user id page. Pls can you post them for me? I'd love to share them. ESPECIALLY the hamster, although the kitty is pretty damn funny.

hahah last night I was trying to explain lolcats to my sister and her boyfriend, who have very little to do with the internet. They just kinda stared at me and couldn't believe it could be a fad.
