    I want to bring back the Gladiators.

    I think on Survivor, when they vote somebody off -- they should kill and eat that person.

    On The Apprentice, I think Trump should have defenestrated those he fired.

    On Fear Factor, there should be no safety nets.

    Sudden Death should mean exactly that.

    On American Gladiator, they should have carried edged weapons, not foam bats.

    And yes, I'm kidding. (If you're offended...)

    I was thinking for being arrogant, kinda along the same lines as that guy on Idol and that woman on Weakest Link, whatwever their names are

    Of course, when I think if fenestrations, I normally think of S. leucophylla.

    Take him on a ride in a car, I bet he's never ever been at the speed of 100km/h. Take hime on an elevator onto a skyscraper. Show him the television, cell phone, and other communication devices. Show him a plane, I'd bet he'd be freaked. Guns, scubadiveing gear, bicycles, sneakers, cameras ('it captured my soul! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] '), robitics, mp3s, electricity and how things can be transfered through a wire, lights, helicopters, and last but not least, todays recreational systems like video games. Lots of things we take for granted like showers would probably amaze him. Its true that their concrete has lasted quite a while, but we put an expiry date on ours due to safty. If the human race was to dissappear today, our buildings would last that same amount of time, if not more.

    Also, try showing him cps, I bet he would have never thought of carnivorous plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . Also, our knowledge of nature would also surprise him. I don't think an average Roman would have ever thought a Rainforest existed. Zongyi

    The Romans were explorers, and technologically advanced for their day.

    I think a lot of modern marvels would only briefly surprise him. I think somebody from the middle ages would be more likely to consider modern technology as witchcraft.
