6.You may have read in the last post about human zoos — well, they still (kind of) exist. There was an episode of An Idiot Abroadwhere they visited a faux village of people with dwarfism who perform and interact with tourists.

7.The Romans were notorious for gruesome execution methods. Perhaps the worst (alleged) method was called scaphism, where a person was fed and covered in honey, put in a swamp, and slowly eaten alive by maggots and worms.

8.Another ancient Rome fact: "During the late Roman Republic, one of the richest men in Rome, Marcus Licinius Crassus, used to own a team of firefighters (there was no dedicated firefighter service at the time). If your building was burning, he would offer to buy the building. If you agreed, he put out the fire. If not, his team of firefighters just left and let the building burn."
