what have the romans and the muslims done for us?

from monty python:
reg: [the romans]'ve bled us white, the bastards. they've taken everything we had, and not just from us, from our fathers, and from our fathers' fathers.
loretta: and from our fathers' fathers' fathers.
reg: yeah.
loretta: and from our fathers' fathers' fathers' fathers.
reg: yeah. all right, stan. don't labour the point. and what have they ever given us in return?!
xerxes: the aqueduct?
reg: what?
xerxes:the aqueduct.
reg: oh. yeah, yeah. they did give us that. uh, that's true. yeah.
commando #3: and the sanitation.
loretta: oh, yeah, the sanitation, reg. remember what the city used to be like?
reg: yeah. all right. i'll grant you the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the romans have done.
matthias: and the roads.
reg: well, yeah. obviously the roads. i mean, the roads go without saying, don't they? but apart from the sanitation, the aqueduct, and the roads--
commando: irrigation.
xerxes: medicine.
commandos: huh? heh? huh...
commando #2: education.
commandos: ohh...
reg: yeah, yeah. all right. fair enough.
commando #1: and the wine.
commandos: oh, yes. yeah...
francis: yeah. yeah, that's something we'd really miss, reg, if the romans left. huh.
commando: public baths.
loretta: and it's safe to walk in the streets at night now, reg.
francis: yeah, they certainly know how to keep order. let's face it. they're the only ones who could in a place like this.
commandos: hehh, heh. heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
reg: all right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the romans ever done for us?

from reality: check the 20 most important things that the muslims did in the past that are still with us... even the word camera is a muslim word! and i bet that's only the tip of the iceberg!

the proposition

"in the harsh, unforgiving landscape of the outback, charlie burns is presented with an impossible proposition by local law enforcer captain stanley: the only way to save his younger brother mikey from the gallows is to track down and kill arthur, his psychotic older brother."

take a look at the first film written by no other than nick cave by clicking here. the soundtrack is excellent (and by nick cave and warren ellis) and i might post an mp3 soon... if i get at least 1 request for it.
