    I grew up thinking Napoleon was evil, but that was actually the fault of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. See, there was an episode where Shredder created four of his own mutant frogs to fight the Turtles, and he named them after his own personal heroes just like Splinter did. But while Splinter chose Renaissance artists like Leonardo and Michelangelo, Shredder chose histories greatest villains: Attila, Genghis, Rasputan and NAPOLEON. So I just assumed Napoleon was a monster.

    It wasn’t until university history class that I learned what a complex legacy he left behind, and how a lot of people think he was one of the greatest people to ever live. That’s what I get for basing my world view on a children’s cartoon show.

I think the problem, to be quite honest with you, is that you’ve never actually known what the question is.” -Douglas Adams, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

  3. I can definitely relate! I mean, I am usually surprised/suspicious if I understand what I’m taking about. Half the time, I’ll be contrary just for the hell of being contrary. And that seems to make perfect sense…to me at least πŸ™‚

    When you said that, you were probably subconsciously thinking about the napoleon pastry, which were sooooooo delicious, the French overate and became far too full to fight during the Russian winter.
