I am such a friggin' geek

I'm watching a movie about the Roman Legions in Britain, and I'm looking at the armor a character is wearing, and I notice that the leather straps on his armor are secured by snap rivets.  And I think to myself "Wait a second, those aren't authentic!  Those are a modern invention.  The Romans would have sewn that part together!"

Yeah.  I'm a geek.

Bingo! You've finally hit on why the entertainment industry is predominantly leftist. their whole lives depend on making what is untrue seem realistic and believable.
