THIS IS VERY URGENT AND NOT A JOKE! ALSO DON'T GOOF OFF!!!!

I really mean it! What would you be able to do if SOPA/TPP censors the internet? What would you be able to do if writing fanfics and drawing fanarts become illegal? What would you do if it's illegal to do a cover of your favorite song on YouTube? What would you do if downloading things from the internet (music, movies, TV episodes, etc) became illegal? What would you do if SOPA/TPP wins the war and takes away internet freedom? Net Neutrality is already dead so far, we can't risk the freedom of internet from getting killed by SOPA/TPP!


SOPA may have been stopped, but large companies with many copyrights are trying to re-institute portions of it under other names and policies. This attempt to limit protected speech in the name of copyright is unacceptable, and must be resisted.

Malia on Crete
Learn ancient history while Greek island hopping? Yes, you can truly experience structures that are over three thousand years old within a few minutes’ walk from full service tourist beaches with deck chairs, umbrellas and water sports.

Those with an academic bent or who want to justify the trip expense as educational can include visits to sites they have studied in school and view the still standing architecture of ancient Greece. These sites include the historical foundation of our western culture: art, literature, democracy, you name it and you can see its early development in Greece.

Throughout Greece it is easy to get to the major sites such as Delphi, Corinth and Olympia. An excellent web site that details each location with photos, maps and diagrams is www.Visit-Ancient-Greece.com

It is on the Greek islands that the concept of “something for everyone” reaches its zenith. The ferry hub of Paros in the Cyclades is a perfect example. It is popular with island hoppers for the combination of that true Greek experience and many sandy beaches. Its central location made it a focal point of ancient civilization as well. There are...

Golden Apple- "Gift" from Eris
The legendary epic battle, the Trojan War, is an amazing legend, explaining in detail the beliefs of the Greeks and how their gods were! My favourite part about the Trojan War is how it started which is not as well known as the other heroic and atrocious deeds! Here's how it goes:

Thetis, a nymph-goddess, was engaged to Peleus, a king and son of Aiakos. All the gods and goddesses were invited to the wedding, or at least almost all of them were invited. Eris, the goddess of spite was neglected and she made them pay dearly.

On the day of the wedding, all the gods and goddesses arrived with many generous gifts. Despite the lack of an invite, Eris showed up with a gift. She was stopped at the door by Hermes, forbidden from coming in. Furious, Eris threw her gift into the room from the doorway and disappeared before anything else could happen.

The "gift" was a golden apple with the words "For the Fairest" elegantly inscribed on it. Hera, Athena and Aphrodite all claimed the apple and bitterly argued as to who the apple should belong to. None of the other gods dared to interfere or favour one of them over the others, fearing they would earn enimity...
