Roman Religion

The Ancient Romans fascinate me. They had a God for every activity that they had to bargain with to gain favor. A wealthy merchant going on a sea voyage would first visit the Temple of Neptune, sacrifice a bull and bathe in its blood. Now you can believe what you will and think what you want about these ancient religious practices, but I think we can all agree on one thing: Religion being ridiculous bullshit is no recent phenomena.

I was expecting some kind of bull's blood, bull's shit, bullshit pun. I don't know what it would be. I can't come up with it. I was just expecting it.

Good reason not to have it.
