    I believe that these issues are paid, someone pays, as I also believe that they pay in directed genetic studies.


    What interests can they be?
    don't know do you have any ideas for why someone could pay them?

    also i wonder what does white mean for you anyways if you are so eager to be called white?

    As a German, why do you insist on telling Americans what the official American term for 'white' people is or how 'regular people' refer to the subject? I promise you, I'm not going to tell you what German people think.

    why do you not also question what real_expert wrote? my take from this would be that he was right? maybe you can explain to me what american people really think. are mena people really white in the eyes of the common american white person and are they accepted as real whites or just as some "whitish" people?

    I'd say this is a pretty good "modernized" portrait of a bust of Julius Caesar, and the man would totally fit into today's Italy. In fact, he looks a lot like my mother's father and somewhat like my mother herself, i.e. a masculine version.

    Of course, whether the bust really is a good representation of Caesar, we don't know, but it was certainly modeled on someone of the period.



    The creator has a facebook page where she does this for a lot of ancient people. Most of them look pretty good to me, except perhaps Nefertiti, who wouldn't have been as "African" looking from what we know of ancient Egyptian genetics, and unless the coins of her are inaccurate, Cleopatra really wasn't that pretty.

    Indeed, Agrippina and Lady Jane Grey are the only really pretty women, but make up and modern hair do wonders.:) It seems she made a really silly mistake with the latter. She clearly should have blue eyes.

    Wow, I look even more like a female version of him in this reconstruction.



    Anyway, here is a coin issued by Caesar himself while he was in Gaul. The laurel leaf hides the fact that he was balding. Vanity, vanity, all is vanity. :)

    I added my children's favorite picture of me for comparison; I'm about 30 there.

    The reconstruction looks more like he could be my brother than my brother does. He's a totally different type.

    I'm not so fond of that one, although the only thing "wrong" in my opinion is that the eyes are too close together. It's more the expression in the eyes, or lack of expression, that I find wanting.

    This is still my favorite.


    It's as if he's about to speak.

    Julius Caesar was the great protagonist of the last period of Republican Rome. He was a majestic orator, strategist, writer and poet, he stood out mainly as a politician and military badge, he had a personality, impulsive, ambitious but also generous and subtle.
