We occasionally get tired watching stories about your depressing view of the future or your giant robot comedies. So, we turn to something more educational. This time we felt a desire to become better acquainted with your history. Perhaps it was the hours and hours of curling that Klaarg watched during your most recent Olympics. Surprisingly, we find many of the same problems with your histories as we do with your futures. For example, we did not realize that Hercules and Atlas were related. As we watched these documentaries we were struck that they looked exactly the same. We also wondered at the creatures that inhabited your world during this time as we are sure the giant dogs, one eyed giants and huge lizards were from another historical time period. We are also not sure about the language. On the other gripping appendage we did so enjoy the spectacle and the costumes, or lack of them. (We are surmising that perhaps it was climatically warmer then which allowed everyone to run around in those leather skirts in apparent comfort.) Klaarg is thinking of getting one for himself but we wonder at this as he does not have the most attractive of appendages. We will be looking for more of these histories in the near future as we still have many wonderings about this time period and we are trying to figure out how you humans lost the ability to throw large rocks about. It was refreshing however to see that your political systems have not changed so much since then and that you seem to value corruption and abuse of authority as much now as you did then.
