Pointless Factoid VI

Dictator was a Roman office used during the Republic in times of great crisis.

The office of dictator today is primarily related to Julius Ceasar, who was appointed dictator for life.

People are people, where ever they may be. Family baggage and spam e-mails are pretty much universal experiences.

Thanks for reading.
