"Quite sure there was homosexuality, but it was far more accepted then nowadays. As some other guys said the Spartans easily aproved of it because of the better fighters they could be. Furthermore marriage was still kept between men and women, but it…"
"I do a agree with that thought. It's not beneficial to say that if we were there we would do X or Y. Things were done for different reasons back then. We have to know why they would have talked about something or not brought up anything at all.…"
"I realize that it is fashionable these days to say that homosexuality is and always has been widespread (and therefore should be given the same high regard and social and legal acceptance as heterosexuality), but it is simply not true.
"Cisco, I think that any good approach to history starts with finding out the attitudes, assumptions, and thoughts of the time period. I don't think it's fair to say that the Spartans, or Leonidas, were homosexual, because that category…"

"The 3H with Tritium illumination is pretty readily available. Not a bad price either, given what it offers. My old flat plate Silva is still plugging along though (20+ years on) - they are tougher than they appear. :)"
"The Cammenga 3H. I don't think this is available for civilian use, but rather comes with a different material for illumination. Other posts here indicate that I am incorrect about this and that the 3H is available for civilians.
Of course you…"
"I never buy a cookbook (unless it's dirt cheap at a jumble sale). Mostly I use allrecipes.com (be sure and look at the reviews --people will say, "This had way too much butter" or such). But I'll also browse cookbooks…"
"If want to go to the origin of most European cooking, I recommend Le Guide Culinaire by August Escoffier. He was the first chef to "write it down" in one big organized book. Seen the movie Red Dragon? The recipe book observed by the agent…"

"Thanks, they have gone onto my "to buy" list. I can see they are pretty versatile! I have been able to control the transition on negatives to a certain extent but have been struggling. I like the idea of the elastics to help build up the…"
"I am trying to build up and maintain some level of endurance. Nothing fancy, I think sets of 12 - 15 pull ups is a good middle ground. I'm not looking to go higher than that.
In my observation a mixture of low rep, high level (like a…"
"I can ask why you want to be able to do high reps of pull-ups? If your trying to build strength you might be better to try doing "L-sit" pull ups where you hold your legs horizontal and do pull ups that way. It makes them much harder!
"I have a set of bodylastics (http://www.bodylastics.com/) I use at home which are excellent, but when I was at the gym I just used whatever ones they had lying around.
I just found that with the negative I wasn't actually working the transition…"
