    Beware the Ides of March.

    The Ides of March comes; aye but it has not gone.

    I might need more luck on the "Ides of March" but I also hope to have some time to gather my thoughts for the two great events of History on this day...

    I think as long a you aren't Julius Caesar, you should be OK. Are there any other historical figures who have had really bad days on the Ides?

    Actually, may he really - I was born close to the Idus Martii (March 16th) and I will have a mission-impossible final attempt before terminal failure (3rd attempt, German uni can suck) at my math exam on monday (which happens to be March 16th also)...
    Without The help of Mars I do not see myself passing that exam. Failure means getting expelled from Uni. No more engineering...

    I was not bragging actually-I was joking*

    the point is merely that the Ides of march is just that: the ides of march. nothing scary about it, as it is just another day.

    But, for our own part, it was not Greek to us, and the Ides changed everything. As cowards die many times before their end, the valiant never taste death but once. Therefore we cried 'Havoc,' and once more, let slip the dogs of war!

    It is no matter, let no image be hung as trophies won. Now we'll all about, fit to drive away the vulgar from the streets, so do you as well, where you perceive them thick. These growing feathers plucked from mighty wings will make us fly no ordinary pitch. Who else would soar above the view of common men and keep us all in servile fearfulness? Rejoice, the Ides of Mars has come.

    Cool store, bro! I want some ham.
    No ham, pepsi.
    They make deli slices of frozen pepsi now? Awesome!
    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    Why, man, he bestrides the narrow world as a Colossus, and we but petty men walk under his huge legs and peep about to find ourselves dishonor. Men at some point are masters of their fates: The fault, dear friends, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are such underlings.
