Interesting Fact of the Day...
Here’s an interesting fact of the day for you:
There was once a sadistic and evil teenager...who happened to be the Roman emperor.
At one of his dinner parties, an avalanche of beautiful, scented rose petals fell from a false ceiling.
What’s so horrible about that you might ask?
Well, he found it entertaining to watch his guests suffocate to death. Unable to crawl out, they basically drowned in the flower petals.
Needless to say, after being emperor for only four years, he was assassinated—at the age of sixteen.
