Well, these rags still look ugly!

Yes, rags with signature is high class style nowadays. However they were tried on Ancient Greek Sculptures and they didn't look any better. Rags are rags. Fashion and clothing industry has to sell, so they must find something new every year; so that one can show his good income and present himself with each collection of the last years. However with such a demand in quantity, quality does suffer heavily.

Was this the best they could do to promote their stuff? The best they could do, they cannot do any better that.

Christianity conquered Heathen Europe. The Dark Ages came. When Europeans decided to read the remaining ancient scriptures, Rennaisance came. When they followed these ideas further, there came the Age of Enlightment. Last century it was decided to abandon the classical world. Fascism, Marxism-Leninism and the 'need' to 'grow' appeared. Not only to grow, but to grow always faster, with a higher rate. The merchants became philosophers and artists, and the philososphers and artists, merchants; and all of them just gamble. Cornelius Castoriades noticed that between 1400 and 1925 there was every 5 years a first class productive genius in Europe; and between 1925 and 1975 there was none.


A Christian Writer and opponent of Hellenism, invented a story to defame the "rival" God Dionysos. He doesn't say where he heard such a myth and as a Christian he doesn't have the abililties to be inspired to utter new myths.

Bisexual or true fidelity?
There are a myth involving a homoerotic relationship with Ampelos, a sweet youth, and Prosymnos, his guide to the realm of Hades. When Dionysos goes to Hades to retrieve his mother, Semele, to bring her to Olympus, he meets Prosymnos on the way. According to Arthur Evans in his book The God of Ecstasy, Christian writer Clement of Alexandria reports:

Dionysos wanted to descend to Hades but did not know the way. A certain Prosymnos promised to show him for a price. The price was indecent but not for Dionysos. The price he asked of Dionysos was a sexual favor. (Evans 34)

Upon his return from the underworld, Dionysos can’t locate Prosymnos because he has died and instead has sex with a wooden dildo made from the branch of a fig tree in order to pay his due to his guide.
