I watched "The Dark Ages" this weekend too.  I had to turn my head a few 
times.  Even the flagellates were too much.  Horrible times.

I also watched the "The History of Sex"  this weekend.  Same 
channel.  Very, very amusing.

If you draw a circle in the sand and study only what's inside the circle, 
then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what is inside the 
circle and everything outside the circle, then that is an open system 
perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
