Well, I figured I needed something more adult than my old one. Besides, I am no longer a junior member. :) And no, it is not really meant to make me look mean or angry. I really am a nice guy most of the time. I swear. :)

The picture is simply the face of one of my own personal heroes, King Leonidas. I clipped it from a movie poster from Warner Brothers big new epic action adventure movie: " 300 " , which is being released this coming March 9th. English actor Gerard Butler plays Leonidas in the movie, so that is his face.

Here is the full movie poster below, so you can better see the context of the photo. The movie is rated R, and was made by the same director and producers of the movies: "Dawn of the Dead" and "Land of the Dead". It looks like it is going to be one extremely bloody affair, due to both the story it is telling, and the background of these film makers.

Although this story is 2,486 years old, I think it still has relevance in today's world. It is said that the movie will focus closely on the subject of whether one should sacrifice one's life in the defense of their country and way of life.

No, that photo was taken at a restaurant's outdoor patio

it was not even taken inside a building. So you really missed that quite badly, I'm afraid.

Anyway, King Leonidas is a much better role model.

The tooth you see in the pic hanging around his neck was that of a demonic wolf varmint, which he killed as a teenager, as depicted below from the movie.

So was actually quite an early varmint hunter. :D

Molon Labe (mo-lone lah-veh)

Two little words. With these two words, two concepts were verbalized that have lived for nearly two and a half Millennia. They signify and characterize both the heart of the Warrior, and the indomitable spirit of mankind. From the ancient Greek, they are the reply of the Spartan General-King Leonidas to Xerxes, the Persian Emperor who came with 600,000 of the fiercest fighting troops in the world to conquer and invade little Greece, then the center and birthplace of civilization as we know it. When Xerxes offered to spare the lives of Leonidas, his 300 personal bodyguards and a handful of Thebans and others who volunteered to defend their country, if they would lay down their arms, Leonidas shouted these two words back.

Molon Labe! (mo-lone lah-veh)

They mean, “Come and get them!” They live on today as the most notable quote in military history. And so began the classic example of courage and valor in its dismissal of overwhelming superiority of numbers, wherein the heart and spirit of brave men overcame insuperable odds. Today, there lies a plaque dedicated to these heroes all at the site. It reads: “Go tell the Spartans, travelers passing by, that here, obedient to their laws we lie.”

We have adopted this defiant utterance as a battle cry in our war against oppression because it says so clearly and simply towards those who would take our arms.

It signifies our determination to not strike the first blow, but also to not stand mute and allow our loved ones, and all that we believe in and stand for, to be trampled by men who would deprive us of our God-given – or natural, if you will – rights to suit their own ends.
