Alexander the Great bio gives a human look to a classic conqueror

Jan 23, 2011 | Posted by: macedonian1 | Full story: www.boston.com

Though he died more than 2,000 years ago, Alexander the Great remains an irresistible subject for biographers. Every age, it seems, must wrestle with Alexander’s legacy. The outline of his life is filled with bold strokes, epic adventures, blood, violence, and daring. By age 30, he had conquered much of the ancient world, from Greece to the frontiers of India. If Alexander was a tribune of Hellenic culture — Aristotle was his tutor — he was also a bloodthirsty conqueror.

So, Ms.M, do you like him back?
Look my friend I keep telling these guys that here is not a date forum, they should go to a more sex oriented forum, but they stay.........

People who talk like this need medical attention, animals castration....

I think Ms M can deal with both situations succesfully.

Jealous? Don't be ridiculous,Ms.M!I was just joking. This individual is not fit to compete for a woman. Even a manky bum has a better chance with a Lady then he does.

You are a very very dangerous lady!

No man should lough in the sound of that name.

Your mind is more dangerous than your scalpel.

Those individuals are uneducated and illiterate.They are unable to say anything of value, therefore they insult.Due to lack of self confidence,their only means of gaining some state of satisfaction is bringing everyone else beneath their own level.I am not worried about people like that.They only hurt themselves.

I don't know about the "manky bum", but I would agree the dude isn't fit or even likable.
