 I wish I could find the article about ancient Egyptians writing on their walls.  I read that and thought the home as your very on blog.  LOL.

"Perfect rhetorical skills to God-like levels" haha!

 

Then there's this. http://www.livescience.com/43265-ancient-school-discovered-in-egypt.html " For instance, The text referring to "The Odyssey" tells a legendary story of ancient drug use: Helen of Troy, for whom the Trojan War had been fought, gives her guests a drug (possibly opium) that "takes away grief and anger, and brings forgetfulness of every ill," the text reads. "Whoever should drink this down when it is mixed in the bowl would not let fall a tear down his cheek in the course of that day at least. Imitate." The word "imitate" appears to indicate the students should copy the passage in some way. Ancient records say that some people believed this passage had a magical quality to it that could calm young people."
