Does anyone want to see one of my favorite memes
@Dayglochainsaw i stan the first ancient civilizations
@Dayglochainsaw i bet there were a lot of cuneiform tablets that said the equivalent of “we live in a society”
@Dayglochainsaw they also invented bad customer service reviews
i wonder if any of today's ebay scammers and telemarketers will achieve the lasting fame of Ea-nasir the dodgy copper merchant?
@Dayglochainsaw wow its my favorite meme now too
Fun fact: King Gilgamesh was the most famous king that Sumerian stories talked about.
And he was*super* gay for a barbarian whom he made his adventuring partner.
For more info, check out the Epic of Gilgamesh. Translations available online... somewhere.
@Dayglochainsaw those wacky sumerians really knew how to party.
I think I saw a video of people speaking an interpretation of Sumerian. It sounded cool as hell.
