    Pompeii was an advanced city and con-tray to reports it was a sin city and that was the reason it was destroyed ,well to be truthful virtually the whole of Italy was the same. It also showed us their living conditions.There standards compared with other western countries was quite high and personal hygiene was heavily practiced.As for washing there clothes which was mainly white and stained quickly with wine and tomato stains,there urine was collected in wooden buckets each morning and brought to holding tanks where the white clothing was washed in it.The acid in the urine removed the stains and then it was rinsed in fresh water. The british produced a series called Pompeii.very interesting also i was in Italy last year

China owns us, we owe them that plenty money. each and every usa that has mixed socialism with democracy has crumbled. the two won't be able to co-exist because of the fact they're polar opposites. while the U.ok. began to undertake socialism it went from the final ability in the international to basically approximately no longer something. are you able to proceed to exist decreased wages at the same time as working 20 hours a week? if so, circulate to England. the comparable social regulations we are adopting have ruined the full economic device in Europe. We learn from the previous or we die.
