Hello World!

It appears the Romans may have committed the ultimate fashion crime: wearing socks with sandals. According to, archaeologists have discovered a bronze statue that seems to be wearing a sock under its sandals.

The theory seems to be that this may not have been commonplace throughout the Roman Empire, but only confined to Britain, because the Romans didn't want their toes getting cold. I can't say I blame them, having had the experience of living through several British winters. But socks with sandals? Ughhh.

And now for something completely different: Aaron Sorkin's last West Wing episode airs in Australia on Tuesday night. Expect a complete wrap up, or more likely, lots of random babbling, on Wednesday.

  • T'Pol To Explore Her Emotional Side
    As a certain TrekToday editor continued to make bad puns based on the two lines of Enterprise's pilot revealed in the trailers, rumours emerged online that T'Pol might not be "burying her Vulcan cynicism for too long". The reports claimed the science officer would reach out and embrace her emotions to a certain degree.
