The fury of Mount Vesuvius!
In viis tuis respice finem (in all your ways, look upon the end)! Had he been a keen horseman, he might have lived another day. But, his intrigues proved his undoing! This ridiculous photo is of me with a dead "dude" at Pompei. Each tourist offers their customary courtesies with this guy by posing for nice photos with him. I guess it's a dagger blow to a man already on the ground, but at least we're all using a velvet glove as he's now all the more famous!
