bronze nowadays costs too much to make into armour
They didn't use bronze, cause that was waaaaaay too expensive, only important people wore breastplates. Your average soldier wore a linothorax, which is basically a bunch of layers of linen glued together, so they form a hard, but flexible material, which they cut into the right shape. It's not as good as bronze, but it didn't really have to be. The body was already protected by the big-ass shield, the armor was mostly just a backup and to stop glancing blows.
You know, the scenes in 300, where the enemy's slashing and stabbing and the shield wall and a stray sword or spear sort of gets past and slightly cuts someone's shoulder or whatever then the spartan looks all pissed and stabs the fucker. This was meant to prevent that. Could also stop arrows somewhat reliably. Which would have made the end of 300 far less dramatic.
In defence of 300, the idea of having them mostly nude is to parallel
might not be the right word
the artwork on vases/statues and such of the time where pretty much everyone was portrayed as naked
Yes, yes, I've watched the Screen Junkies thing where they explained how 300 can get away with all of its fuckery, like the monsters and everyone being Fabio, because it's technically a story being told by a guy who's embellishing it. Still doesn't change the fact that they had the audacity to say it was based on a true story. That shit is based on a comic book, based on a book, based on greek propaganda, based on the story of a blind man, based on a true story.

Pretty normal. This is terrible behavior for a cop.
No, it means you have compassion, and therefore are a human being
You're not the only one.
