    My father is an former Classics teacher, so I'm sure it started with my father. I was fluent in Roman numerals by the age of seven, as I recall.

    PhroX, that's how Horrible Histories works - tell someone something disgusting that happened in history and children, especially young boys, are likely to remember it. :)

    Probably Civ. 1. :old:

    Also, my dad's work got me interested in the military, and thus the Cold War, and thus the Russians, and thus the history of the countries involved in the Cold War.

    I still remember that pope's daughter who claimed she couldn't be having sex with her father because she was having sex with her brothers.
