We’re creeping up on episode 50, aren’t we? The time flew by, that’s for sure. Enough of that! Listen in as we discuss an end of the world zombie film with scheming humans trying to out-scheme each other! And then join forces. And then become friends. Or do they?

Great film. Great acting.

Ancient Rome

Genius Engineering

The Romans had built Rome along the Tiber river, on the seven hills. Romans were very successful conquerors. Their population was growing very fast and the streets were getting cramped. It got so bad trying to walk in the streets that Julius Caesar made it a law that all wheeled transports and deliveries could only use the streets at night. Only foot traffic was allowed during the day.

 

All these people needed water. The Romans liked their public baths, their fountains, their gardens, and latrines. Some people even tapped into the aqueduct to bring the freshwater into their homes. The more wealthy people had to buy a license to do this, but the not so wealthy just did it themselves. As a consequence, not all the water made it to where it was supposed to go and a group of government employees would break up the illegal taps into the water supply.

Here is what the Romans built. Some of these ran for 57 miles and are still in use today.
