2000 year later and things haven't changed:

Ngl, I would give a few bags of flour ...

Has there been any serious research into 700 BCE buttock decorating? Asking for a friend.

[-] [email protected] 37 points 1 month ago

Here is his friend. Anything please?

Next week on: Ancient Incels

They "are totally not incels, you just don't know them, they go to a different planet, they abduct me on the regular, so much you wouldn't believe, all the probes" ...

Zeus can find what?? Leaving out crucial information here!

[-] [email protected] 13 points 1 month ago

What can't you read‽ Zeus can find 70!

[-] Iron_Lynx 4 points 1 month ago

I doubt he can find 1.198 × 10^100^

Bruh is a god, I think he'll manage.

Nah it's Zeus, he'll say "fuck it" after not too long.

Just 70, silly! Come on, get with the programme!

[-] Aceticon 1 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

From the whole paragraph, that would be 70 sons.

Makes sense as Zeus was well known for his affairs with mortal women using various disguises.

I’m wondering if Hesiod was referring to jewelry, fancy clothes, or tattoos.

[-] moistclump 7 points 1 month ago

Butt plugs. The kind with the jewels. Or tails.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

Something something sparta stuffing a fox under their tunic, I don't remember how it goes.

[-] [email protected] 24 points 1 month ago

What kind of buttock decoration methods did they even have in 700bc?

The words are ancient and clear: never trust a big butt and a smile.

[-] [email protected] 17 points 1 month ago

I always interpreted this as a willful mistranslation considering what a granary looks like.

[-] [email protected] 40 points 1 month ago

I think that's how they said "gold digger" ~2700 years ago

Back in the day being rich means owning lots of land and harvesting lots of crops from it. Grain means money.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

I don't think decorated butt means it's a big butt

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Wait a second.... were there even buttocks in 700 BC?

[-] [email protected] 20 points 1 month ago

Yes... BC stands for Butt Crack

Watch out! She's after your seed!
