Rome,maybe,oldest profession(prostitution)second oldest surveying(defining boundaries so taxes could be leveed)! Its really all about monies isn't it? So those countries than had coinage were the first to find a way to enslave men to work,Mastercard or Visa will sure get your ass outa bed now! Bob [:D]

I agree with [b]Pogo[/b]! Iceland's [i][b]Althing[/b][/i], which is its governing body, has been in continuous existence since around 900 AD. I remember a Sixty Minutes program that was done on Iceland many years back, that claimed that if Leif Erickson walked into a home anywhere in Iceland and began watching television, he would understand every non-technical word that was used, so little has the language changed over the past millennium! The womenz are exquisite and represent the beauty pageant winners from 1,000 years of the rape of the womenz of Europe! Anytime Vikings overran a village they would rape and kill the ugly women but always bring the beautiful ones home as war trophies to marry! Ah, but my mind wanders a bit nowadays....
