Actually before I read the books, that was my mental image of the arena
I thought that too, when my teacher described the books to me to begin with because the 2010 winter olympics were coming up

THE HEIR TO THE BRITISH EMPIRE
Government positions should be assigned based on the consent of the governed, not through birthright.
Also, the British Empire isn’t a thing anymore.
whenever I see it, I assume it’s from a Korean drama I know nothing about haha
Fun fact: There is a little corner store in the general area of my house where the woman behind the counter only seems to speak Cantonese and just enough english to have basic conversations with customers pertaining to their purchase:
“You have work today?”
“No, I’m just heading off to class.”
“Just pepsi today? No pretzel?”
“Thanks, not today!” (I’ve never bought a pretzel there before)
“No cigarette?” (I don’t smoke)
“No thanks, have a good day!”
She’s always got a laptop open and is usually watching Cantonese soap operas. Very often, she’ll be so engulfed that I’ll just leave the money for my pepsi on the counter and get a nod of acknowledgement.
I like that store because a 24 oz. pepsi is the same price as a 20 oz. pepsi.
ughh I hate the electoral vote
It is the worst. There’s really no reason for it now that there’s no longer a power struggle between free and slave states.
i think the electoral college should be based on the population of smart people instead of the general population.
If the people who designed the system knew how to identify smart people, we wouldn’t have an electoral college.
What dumb ass came up with the electoral vote?
I specialize in history, I should know this
