I could go on a long, long rant about a lot of this, but really it comes down to what we value as a society.Why is it that a man in the NFL (the top 0.001% of athletes) who is freakishly athletic, tall, and can jump high, is paid infinitely more than the prestigious professor (top 0.001% of education) who does research for X disease. Or even the orthopedic surgeon repairing the athlete knee? The surgeon gets paid 10% of the athlete. Why? Take away the entertainment factor from sports, and what do they offer to us as a society?

The “winner” was Julianus, who came up with a truly astronomical price: 250 gold pieces for every member of the army, which comes out to somewhere around $1 billion in today’s money. Unfortunately, the guards had sold something that didn’t belong to them, a classic, if simple, financial fraud.
Myth 2: Big brand loyalty is dead. The Internet killed it. While it’s true that the Internet is a great equalizer in many ways, in other ways, it has the opposite effect. Did Battleship Sink?The movie Battleship was “inspired” by a board and paper and pencil game whose origins can be traced back to the late 19th century (Wikipedia).
