The pyramid one is true, to an extent. The pyramid workers were paid in five gallons of beer a day, Egyptian beer was different from modern brews; it was thicker with a lower alcohol content and was actually a staple of the Egyptian diet. Even children would be given a bowl of beer with their meals.

The beers brewed at that time period were thicker and had more protein and carbohydrates than modern brews, so had a much higher nutritional value.

In fact, beer was so important to ancient civilizations that the Sumerians had more than 40 times as many words for beer as the Inuit tribes have for snow.

The Roman Empire was usually considered to be two Empires; East and West (duh), so when our Roman Empire that covered italy and all that jazz fell, that East, being somewhat self sufficient, survived, with Greece's captial as it's own.

Dude, I know only one fact per empire. To push for more.

The Holy Roman Empire was not Holy, nor was it Roman, and it wasn't really an Empire, either.
(I know more HRE facts, they're just not very interesting)

That's a tad wrong, the partition into east and west only occurred in 285AD, more than a hundred and fifty years after the empire's greatest height in 117AD under Trajan.

And the Eastern empire survived in Constantinople, which wasn't Greece's capital. Greece didn't even have a capital at this point, nor did it exist as a political entity.

Tea making facilities. You mean a plug to put a kettle in. I'm sure every modern tank has plugs.

Also Baseball wasn't invented in Britain, rounders was. Its similar but different.

And the world population in 480 bc was around 190 million, divided by 44% that's 83.6 million. At the height of the British empire we had 458 million people under the empire. I'm not bragging because to gain an empire you have to murder a lot of people, which is bollocks.

Chavs do it all the time. Makes no ******* sense. But i've learned the stupider someone is the more likely they'll start copying people around them rather than form their own opinions. I hate people

Although that doesn't mean someone who has a popular opinion just copied someone else or that someone who has a controversial opinion didn't. Just making sure you know that.

Obviously. But we are not talking about normal rational people here. I've witnessed these morons laughing at anyone who says anything intelligent. If its not about weed or anything else seen as "manly" then they don't care

well that and russia would waste thousand upon thousands of men to capture or defend a single position weather it had importance or not (for instance they'd send penal batallions in on suicide missions. In some instances with supply shortages men would have to take positions without any ammunition. A good example is the brest fortress defence located in brest litovsk

The reason the Persian empire had a larger pop.control was because it was very densely [url deleted] reality it only had 3 million square miles of land which,in comparison to the British Empire's 13.01 million square miles and the Mongol's 12.75 million square miles,is pretty small.
