"socrates is the dude on the far left" No, that is Plato. He sits somberly awaiting his friendís unfortunate but ethically necessary death. If you don't believe me check: http://www.bc.edu/bc_org/avp/cas/his/CoreArt/art/neocl_dav_soc.html "Only Plato, at the foot of the bed and Crito grasping his master's leg, seem in control of themselves."

"you paid for it" Well, I feel that I enjoy this site a great deal so occasionally I like to give back to it. I might as well get something of mine viewed a few times in the process.

June 25th, 2006

"why the f*ck are they moving?" It keeps instep with the lol archetype. The hilarity of that particular fad is enhanced by a certain perception of mania and insanity conveyed through movement. I also thought that Socrates' pointing hand lightly resembled Ronaldís in the original lol the internet YTMND.

Nobody listens in class anymore, least of all in history or philosophy, so I'll give it a 4 because I actually know about this.

"who DOESN'T know all about this!?" Socrates was killed after willingly consuming hemlock in accordance with his ethical devotion to Athenian law. It would be what he is receiving in that goblet.

I like how if you don't upvote this, you're either or uncultured or uneducated. Nice logic people. The fact that most of you don't understand the meaning of this (and there really is none) while putting the others down that actually do see what the author is doing shows that you are psuedo-intellectual, hypocrital egomaniacs. He has done this once before with Immanuel Kant. Wikipedia's intellectual property is not garunteed.

lol, a stupid spinoff of a tired old fad. Before you call me an uneducated prick, I do get the reference, and insulting my primitive distaste for the finer arts does not change my opinion on this poor YTMND. Grow up.

Hey, UrbanSombrero and misspoptart I don't know what the hell is wrong with the both of you but no one is calling you uncultured. I am fully aware that there are a lot of people that don't get the reference. You can try and put yourselves up as some kind of down voting martyrs somewhere else because I donít give a damn whether or not you ultimately get the reference.

damn, if only socrates hadn't drank that hemlock he's still be alive toda-- oh, nm

"how did you do the moving background" It was done in Adobe's ImageReady C2 by a 4 quarter sectional rotation method (which I'm sure is unnecessary, but I know no other method at this time) that was then blurred using the "motion blur" filter.

Xenophon reports "Socrates is guilty of crime in refusing to recognize the gods acknowledged by the state, and importing strange divinities of his own; he is further guilty of corrupting the young."
