The residents of the ancient city of Pompeii weren't limited to street-level plumbing, a new study finds. In fact, many in the city may have headed upstairs when nature called.

Most second floors in the Roman city are gone, claimed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii in A.D. 79. But vertical pipes leading to lost second stories strongly suggest that there were once toilets up there, according to a new analysis by A. Kate Trusler, a doctoral candidate in anthropology at the University of Missouri.

The Romans mastered the pouring of concrete UNDERWATER.  Their civilization was built on engineering we still marvel at...awesome!  Too bad they were such a bloodthirsty lot.

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

You need to be a blood thirsty lot to thrive in those days (and these days too, to an extent). :o

Umm... Okay then...

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
