Realistically speaking would you be tiger food, or Spartacus.

I also put forward the motion that Spartacus had aspergers syndrome, along with the 300 aspies that saw off the Persian Empire.

Now to get the ball rolling:-

I'M SPARTACUS.

If I were a gladiator, I wouldn't be as fat as I am, which is my primary disadvantage in a fight (and not much of one at that, for the record). So I'd have to say that:

This! Is! SPARTACUS!

We should'nt exagerate the mortality of gladiators. They were high level athletes instead of blade fodder. The fight-shows themselves involved rented gladiators, and if they finished dead or to badly injuried the organisators would have to pay an expensive fee to compensate the losses.

If I were like I am now but in Ancient Rome, I would be a bad gladiator ! :lol:
(too skinny and not muscles enough)

I...AM...PURINA!! !!

:D

Either that, or I'd gather the fallen weapons and armor of the defeated gladiators and build a Rube Goldberg device to trap the lion (did they use tigers? I thought it was lions).

Ten years ago, I would have gotten off work, lifted weights for 2 hrs followed by 45 minutes of intense cardio... Ten years ago, I was Sparticus.

Ten minutes ago, I just finished my 2nd chili-cheese burrito and my 4th miller...

I bet I could give a Tiger EPIC indigestion. 8)
