The 'parental guidance' sign is small, discreet and in the unlikeliest of venues -- not the foyer of a cinema, or a shop selling CDs by foul-mouthed rappers, but in the august splendour of the British Museum.

Take warning, this is EGGZACKTLY what is gonna happen, to the ENTIRE USA!,
when Gay Marriage gets "normalized".
Volcanoes all over are gonna start spewing poison gas, men are going to get married to goats {see Pompeian Statue}, gay couples' children will turn to ash in their beds. Sin City indeed!

Thanks Agnes. I have been to Pompeii several times and to Herculaneum once and read extensively on what happened to these cities and watched all the Nat Geo specials about more recent excavations.

This would make an interesting "home school" field trip.

Fascinating. I remember learning about the eruption of Vesuvius in my high school Latin class. The event was so sudden that people were literally frozen in time.

I was fortunate enough to visit one of the travelling exhibitions of Pompeii several years ago. I found it highly rewarding.
