After the 1st century AD, there were pysical qualifications such as height - before that there was a property qualification (you had to be able to supply your own gear. In the last century BC, Gaius Marius changed the playing field by letting the poor of Rome into the legions and opened the floodgates for others to be allowed, such as the provincials). But by that era there were a lot of conscripts in the legions who were from other parts of the empire ie Gauls, Germans, Spaniards. Gauls and Germans in particular were considered giants by the Romans, but reports from Caesars' Gallic Wars say that "giant" was 6"3, 6"4. Once the Romans figured out that they could get the provincials to man the legions, true Romans from Rome ceased to feature in the Legions.

When I signed up, I was 29 years old and had my Telecaster sitting across my lap.

Now I am 32 and had to sell the Tele to pay things like rent and petrol. The joys of the single-income father.

We should start an "Interesting things about ancient history" forum! I'd be keen. :-)

Only the 2 asparagusses here, Blue Asparagus, which is just plain weird, and Captain Asparagus, not weird at all, but NZs only registered superhero.
You should see me in my lime-green lycra uniform, purple cape, flying helmet and goggles,, with a pair (or two) of socks shoved down the front for the heroic posing to impress ze ladeez. Not weird at all.
On second thoughts, unless you are already in long term counselling, perhaps you should not see me in my lime-green lycra uniform, purple cape, flying helmet and goggles, with a pair (or two) of socks shoved down the front for the heroic posing to impress ze ladeez. Especially after you have had a large meal.
repeat... not weird at all. Honest.

Homage to my father in law and my wife. Was never into fishing, untill he gave me his share of his boat. A ramco dominator 555. He gave me/us the boat on condition I married his daughter...(was going to anyhoo). He allways called his daughter peanut (small and cute as a...) so found it fit when we took full ownership of the boat to name it after her. peanut.
Nothing to do with drugs.

Mines pretty boring,
Found this site at the start of 7th form (or year 13) and would jump on during design classes.. Read a few good posts and decided I needed to join. Was sitting in front of the computer one morning with some music on, couldn't think of a name and then Johny be good started playing. Thought what the heck sounds ok. Although I contemplate changing it from time to time..
I just want to jig

Greywulff,
 
The Grey Wulff represents a bushy, high floating spent mayfly, that remains visible into the evening twilight, and rides well in rough water. Every modern fly angler should have one or more of Lee Wulff's innovations in there flybox.

The Wulff series of fly patterns were developed by Lee Wulff. Lee died in his 86th year at the controls of his light plane in 1991.

I was given my first Greywulff at the age of 7 and over the years spent countless hours hunting down big Irish trout with one of these flies. Also named two boats Greywulff, the fly is that good..... 

Your not walking on water while I'm fishing here.......

Got the nickname from my mates 20yrs ago driving an RV, after a couple, in heavy rain heading from Taupo to Rotorua and lost it on a corner. Mates were at the bar fridge getting a beer when she went sideways....thus Skidder. btw I did overcorrect but we made it to Rotorua upright and safe which is the main thing.

well mine was sort of allocated to me way back in the early 70's ... Always had a passion for fishing and was keen to learn and caught heaps... All the parties I attended , I would bring a fresh caught whole snapper or two, wrapped in foil with salt,  pepper, butter, lemon rings and heaps of dill and parsley.. These were thrown on the BBQ and devoured as an entree to the main bbq meal... when new folk came to meet me.. they would then say...  oohhhh your that "fisher" guy that brings all the magic fish...  so "fisher" just stuck....  I have used it on all the forums I attend but found there was another already here so changed it.. but it just didn't feel right.. so on here I became  *fisher*
