Yes. In fact the original day I was going to see it in theaters, I was pushed through a window resulting in 150 stitches and 56 staples.

How very Spartan.

How severe were the injuries?

I think the Spartan's civilization is quite interesting to read about, but considering the bigger picture I don't find them as intriguing as other militaristic groups such as France under Napolean and the Mongols under Genghis Khan. I did like the movie 300 as well as the recent sequel. I've seen each numerous times. I think that the Spartan model has become too romanticized over time. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to be a part of it.

How is that relevant to my study or the videos I posted?

You posted video from the movie 300. Deduction tells me that you are using this as history reference based on the OP

Not one video uses the movie the 300. One of them is a 3-hour long documentary from the History Channel that was produced in response to the movie though; can't blame them for capturing popular interest at the time.

Don't know exactly why, but I portray Spartans as the ancient North Korea lol Except with a super hot leader.
