sometimes i think i’m arrogant but then i remember that julius caesar was kidnapped by cicilian pirates and when they demanded a ransom of 620 kgs of silver he got mad because he thought he was worth more than that and made them raise it to 1550 kgHe has also recited his own poetry to them.
my dream is to start an inn in italy just like the one in ecce romani and a little ways up the road have a carriage in a ditch as a tourist attraction and the guests could all take picks of them sitting in the ditch and the inside of the inn would be decorated with framed portraits of the ecce romani characters and the rooms would be named after chapter titles so yah anyone want in on this action?
Things I wish more people knew: Ect. (or alternatively, &c, the ampersand being a ligature of “et,”) is pronounced “et cetera,” not “ex cetera.” It comes from Latin, meaning (most literally) “and others.” “Et” in Latin means “and.” “Ex” in Latin means “from.” Therefore, if you say “ex cetera,” you are saying “from others” which changes the meaning entirely. Check your pronunciation before you wreck your pronunciation.
