12. What is Zoroastrianism?

A religion based on the Gathas& The Avesta , hymns written by the founder Zaruthustra, or Zoroaster. Respectable man to say the least.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

I'm half Greek, but whatever.

1. Did you ever study Ancient Greece in school? No.
2. Did you ever study Ancient Persia in school? No.
3. Where was Alexander from?(I know he was from Greece but where) Kavala, I'm guessing. I'm not sure. He had a castle there, though.
4. Name 3 kings or warriors of Persia. NEVER!
5. Did the Roman Empire come before or after Alexander? After, of course. Julias Ceasar cried because he couldn't accomplish as much as Alexander did.
6. What did the Persian Empire consist of? (land wise) Iran and something else, whatever.
7. Was Athens ever captured by the Persians? Who knows?
8. Who killed the Persian's king Darius III when the Greeks invaded Persia? Thom Yorke from Radiohead.
9. Was Xerxes Greek or Persian? Wasn't he Alexander's best friend? I'm guessing. Greek.
10. What was the capital of Persia? Babylon, right?
11. Who were the Trojans? I know who they were. I just don't feel like explaining. The Romans are descendents of the Trojans, though.
12. What is Zoroastrianism?  If I remember correctly, it was the Aryans' religion on which most of our modern day religions are based on (they started the whole concept of heaven and hell and such). I've been meaning to check out a book about it. If it's not that, you can all just point and laugh.
13. Which do you consider superior? I don't consider any of them superior or inferior. Alexander's army was a mixture of both Persian and Greek soldiers. Which turned out to be a powerful alliance.
