ITT: OP is a loser who doesn't check his facts, but instead has a wast knowledge of bullshit

With that being said, the things I added for him were based off a few sources, and everything seemed to be the same everywhere I looked. Some of it possibly was more exaggerated than others, but I was just going with what I found.
I'm not saying what you're saying isn't true, but I just wrote what I found and any inconsistency was based on the articles and not me. But either way, I'm keeping this comment stickied because it's interesting and for all I know, it's true.

Thanks so much for writing this, every time someone does a post like this on Caligula or Nero I have to explain just how badly represented these 'facts' are. As much as I love reading Suetonius, basically everything he says needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. And he was writing just under a hundred years later

That's an interesting case. Nero originally was very brave when he first came to power. He was mentored by the philosopher Seneca (NOT his mother) who taught him that executions were wrong and so he originally banned corporal punishment however shortly after the great fire happened (Which btw Nero did not watch and dance around, he wasn't in Rome at the time. His playing of music was more of a mournful exercise than an insane one) there needed to be a scapegoat.
You have to realize that at that point, Christians were seen as nothing more than a cult. a treasonous cult which already operated in violation of multiple Roman laws. Romans were already suspicious of any religion other than those the state had approved, and they readily accepted the Christians as a threat to the state. It was more a political move with imagination than anything else.

It's not about sources being wrong, its about them being misrepresented. If a young emperor is murdered then the sources have to prove him to be a monster in order to get public opinion to hate him and favour the new leader.
Look at Nero, half the shit he did was exaggerated so when he died people lost their shit but the sources were altered to make him seem like a monster. People were dressing up as him to try and incite a revolution shortly after he had died.
Act like a sarcastic dick all you want but I'm just saying what I studied and what I got a pretty decent mark in. Sorry if you disagree.

He did and didn't do it. He did it regarding his Eastern policies but not in his own home or city. He didn't like how Jewish synagogues didn't worship him like they did Augustus or every prior leader(Due to his age of only being 24 most likely) so he ordered that statues of him be placed in Synagogues. This caused rioting and as a result, he had all jewish statues heads cut off and replaced with his own. No idea where the replacing the heads things came from but it wouldn't surprise me, his family was so wholly obsessed with looking pure and godlike that stuff like this wouldn't be uncommon. He had incestruous relations with his sister(Only 1 of them) for the very reason of keeping the bloodline "pure".

I am biased towards the One M8, but I don't feel like any other phones offer the same balance between usability and looks.
#17736 - voltkills (09/26/2014) [-]
like istartedthewar said, dont go samsung, they are like the apple of andriod, their version of andriod, touchwizz, is restrictive, weak and slow. also ugly, depending on who you ask.
Then theres build quality, samsung uses all plastic, which many companies dont, even many budget smartphones have some metal in them now, samsung are all plastic.
there are more reasons, that should be enough though.
I would recommend the HTC one M8, its a great phone, lovely design and feel, and the OS is fast and easy to use. and no im not bias, i dont own one, i just know they are great.
#17741 - IrishRovre (09/26/2014) [-]
Money is kind of an issue(Don't know yet though) but what was the previous model to the M8? There's the HTC One that's the previous one isn't it?
This advice has been extremely helpful too. Sorry if i sound like a noob. I never really cared about getting a good phone until now and I've had the same phone since 2010.
#17737 - andriod (09/26/2014) [-]
While I agree about the One m8, You're wrong about the build quality.
The plastic is only on the outside. The frame and internal components are all top notch on most galaxy products. Samsung phones generally have great build quality, But look cheap.
Also yeah Touchwiz is terrible but on android phones you can atleast root jailbreak it and install either stock android or my favorite Cyanogenmod
