Wear this t-shirt, look even geekier

Latin blogging t-shirt

ThinkGeek

This isn't a gadget, but I felt obliged to post it here on Crave for two reasons: 1) we all love corny blog humor, as much as we hate to admit it; and 2) I suffered through four years of high school Latin, right through that excruciating Aeneid-based AP exam. But in retrospect (i.e. once you're no longer getting graded on it), Latin really is kind of cool, especially since it gives you fun insider details as to what the stuff in that HBO series Rome is really about. Plus, the mashup of an ancient language with 21st-century Internet trends is always kind of neat. It makes you think: for example, with all those "letters" he kept sending to everyone, Cicero was kind of like a proto-blogger, wasn't he?
