Two fun links today

  • The financial crisis: explained very simply, but accurately!
  • What things cost in Ancient Rome: 1/3 of the population couldn't afford food -- sounds like New York! 3/4s of a pound of silk cost more than 10 people. People were considered a valid unit of measure! Ugh. Rome.
Enjoy! Or be horrified. Whatever.
