regndoft: (Vestal {Ab Antiquo})
I blame the Greeks for a lot of things.

This is may seem like something of a no-brainer; there are a lot of things to blame the Greeks for. Scholars have dedicated their entire careers to examine what things we are to blame the Greeks for and how. But on a personal level, I do think ancient Greek culture has provided me with life-shaping framework for two things:

1. Stories. This cornucopia of myths, epics, tragedies-- it's something I've grown up with since I was seven years old. It's still something that continues to influence the way I interpret and re-interpret the myths themselves, how they are used in modern media, everything.

2. Sex. Ridiculous, abnormal, innumeral sexual encounters.

And now we enter the land of self-reflection )
