I know Cracked was just kidding but...

How much do I love the idea that the Romans burned the Library of Alexandria "to stop the Greeks using time travel against them again." LOL!!! ^_^

It's scary that I wouldn't be surprised if the Hellenistic Greeks had time travel technology. I mean, they would have just proved they could do it, write a poem about it, then never actually use it. ...That we know of. Or DID THEY? ...Did they? ... >_>

But, God, that one about the Mongols destroying the books in the House of Wisdom in Baghdad... The Tigris being ink-black for 6 months? O_O AAAAAAAAAAAAArgh!
