Get to Know the Weird Part of The Roman Ancient Life
Whenever a place is a mention, you will get to remember some special features associated with that place. Ancient Rome is not an exception as you will have several pictures about The Roman Guy and the whole place of Rome in the ancient time. We attribute such images to the several shows and movies that depicted how it used to be. However, the truth is, the shows and movies don’t tell all the story. You will realize that there are untold stories that you have never heard of and here are some of them.
A story goes that most Romans used urine valuable in their lives. Urine business was so common that even the government itself had placed taxes on any sale of urine. You could find The Roman Guy making a living by collecting urine at urinals in public locations. Most other Romans could go around collecting urine from various homesteads.
It was very crucial that Romans seek the help of magicians to keep surviving in bathrooms. Any case of constipation or diarrhea meant that death was staring at you. The Roman Guy knew that at any given time, one can face death in the restroom. One reason for this is that creatures that lived in the Roman sewage system were dangerous to those who were visiting bathrooms. Another theory was that methane would buildup and often ignite causing explosion underneath bathroom goers.
Whenever gladiators died, their dead skin cells were used by women as aphrodisiac. Their dead cells were collected by The Roman Guy and turned to facial creams to be used as aphrodisiac. The face cream would be used by women on their faces since they believed that they would then become enticing to men.
The Roman Guy and all the Romans used to be cautious about allowing their eyes to be bigger than their stomachs. The Roman Guy who attended any celebration would consume as much food as possible and goes to induce vomiting before embarking on eating again.
The dead of Roman gladiators meant that their blood would be collected by The Roman Guy and converted to useful medicines. The major theory here was such a fighter’s blood was the best medicine for epilepsy if consumed. Others could just eat the body parts of gladiators raw after pulling out the liver. You could find a doctor who held strong beliefs that drinking human blood was a cure for epilepsy and could even go ahead to make claims that they have seen an epilepsy patient recover after drinking such blood.
The ancient Roman women used to dye their hair every other time. Though this dye wasn’t packaged in a special box, it was good for hair dying and often could be prepared by The Roman Guy.
