Nero’s Rotating Dining Table – from Neat-O-Rama

REMINDER:  10 Days until the End of “History’s Greatest Asshole.” We’ll be tracking using the horse on the top right.  Get those submissions in!

Interesting article from Neat-O-Rama concerning Roman debauchery.  It seems that archaeological evidence has been found to support claims of a rotating dining room for the Roman emperor Nero in the mid-late first century C.E.  According to the historian Suetonius, Nero had a room which rotated either by canals or by slaves using cranks and pulleys.  The link on the page continues to Socyberty for more info.  Definitely look at both sites for some wierd, wild stuff, to paraphrase Johnny Carson.

And now, time for my treasure bath!
