Re: Byzantium Novum

Long time no see y'all. There is another question I have that I would like to see our opinons on. We have all been micronationalists at some point, and some of us still are. What is, or what was the attraction of this for you? Looking back, I think a large part of it for me was having a symboli...

Re: If you could bring something back, what would it be?

Salvete, On the other hand, Roman roads saw traffic of a much lower intensity than modern highways. But some aspects for their engineering are indeed pretty sound, such as using cobbles and tiles rather than just paste everything with concrete. The problem with the latter solution is that it's harm...

Re: America vs. Rome, a hilarious comparison

Avete, Haven't clicked the link, but it seems to be quite crackpot-like. Or is it a parody? Anyway, I would liken the United States more to ancient Athens than I would compare it to Ancient Rome. But any such comparison will eventually be a form of Hineininterpretierung and serves little use other...

Re: Latin tips and tricks

Cn. Dionysius Valerio Claudio SPD, Salvete, Docti atque Indocti - Me indocto, until I see better proof this is my folk-rendition of the "Clovis" story - [x]lofis => [x]lovis (vowels either side working on the "f" and vocalizing it). Then, the Latin transcription: chlo...

Re: Latin tips and tricks

Salve mi Formose, Let me start off by saying I was once known as the dreaded "Latin Inquisition" here, although my Latin is mainly leftovers from secondary school (six years of Latin) and there have been/are socii whose Latin is much better than mine. The reason for this nickname is that ...

True, but as far as I know Frank Miller is also quite known for his reactionary political views.

Re: 300

Salvete, Late to the party here, but hey. My main gripe with "300" was not so much its historical inaccuracy or the fantasy element, which I can understand as a director's creative approach. My main problem was that Spartan society and violence are glorified to the extreme. We see endl...

Re: I Cruce Male !

I also saw that there has been some discussion about how the 'V' in the word 'salve' and similar ones should be pronounced : as a 'W' or as a 'U'. I've no authority on such subjects at all, but I do lean towards the 'U' pronunciation : pretty much as it is pronounced in present day French and Spani...

Re: NR's Sulla

I can't believe that I missed this topic before, since it's been around for quite some time, apparently. So that doughmonster is still alive eh. About a year ago I skimmed through NR's mailing list for old time's sake, and at one point I saw a post from either QFM or LSD which suggested they're not...

Re: Holy Smoke !

[color=#008080]I'm still an inveterate smoker myself. At least a packet a day. It's a filthy habit, I know, I've heard it a million times, no need to tell me again. But think of all the money I save on food. A packet of cigarettes and a pot of strong coffee and I can get bye pretty easily for a who...

Salve Valeri Claudi, How about you? What has kept you away from the hallowed halls of the SVR? (Aside from partying heartily!) Work, study, or - ? :shock: Well, I had a severe accident with a monster truck and a troop of genetically engineered gorillas, which left me incapable of indepen...

How have you all been doing?

Salvete amici,

It's been quite a while since I was last here. Gone is the pink board. What was the problem with pink? But blue is nice, too.

So, how are you?

Valete,

It's probably very late, but I'm going to butt into this issue anyway. It's an interesting question, but one that also raises the question of what we should consider a "Roman". Did Napoleon regard himself as a Roman? For sure, he drew a lot of inspiration from the Roman Republic/Empire,...

Salvete sodales, I do not post here often these days. In fact, almost never, even though I helped founding the SVR back in the olden days, and I was one of its most active members for its first few years of existence. Like Marius said - don't stop talking. It's what keeps things alive. The ...

Salvete,

Though I will not run for office, I wish all candidates the best of luck, and thank them for their consideration in serving the Societas. As I also said in a thread on the Curia, while I do not want any official duties, I will remain here to provide help when needed.

Valete bene,
