The Killing Death

This movie has an interesting premise; to create the ultimate pizza topped with human body parts! A meat lover’s delight! So yeah, it’s a comedy horror and did the fine people pull it off? Listen in (with guest host, the boy!) and find out:

And now, more;

Ancient Rome!

The Roman legionaries carried a javelin (Pilum). As they were closing with the enemy, they’d hurl the javelin at the enemy. Now, you’re probably thinking, well, why didn’t the enemy just throw them back? If it didn’t get anyone, why wouldn’t they pick up the javelin and use it against the Romans?

Well, because the Romans made the head of the javelin out of soft metal. If it went into a person, it would be tough to pull out and the head would be damaged and blunted. It would diminish its use. If it went through a shield, the metal would bend and the shaft would drag on the ground. The enemy wouldn’t be able to remove it and it would render their shield useless.

Damn! Clever Romans!

Ancient Rome Fun Fact: 

The city of Rome was a maze of haphazard buildings and streets that ended abruptly. People were crammed on top of each other in apartments and tenements. Some of these buildings were five to seven stories high. The closer to the ground that you lived, the more affluent you were. A ground floor family would have separate rooms, glazed windows, running water and an indoor toilet. The top floor family would have to share one room, would have to use the public toilets outside and could be evicted at any time. People in these buildings were in constant fear of fire. There was no real firefighter unit at the time.

Crassus, reputedly the richest man ever, rushed to a building fire and negotiated to buy the place from the owner while his army of slaves stood behind him with water buckets. Once he purchased the place for very cheap, he sent his slaves in to put the fire out. Crassus was kind of a jerk.

This movie is what you get when you force a bunch of ancient vampires to be roommates and film it as though you were watching a reality TV show. A cross between Housewives of Orange County and Real Life. Needless to say, this was very entertaining and well worth your time.
