During the Salem witch trials, witches weren't the only people burned. gays were burned as well, but were viewed to be lower than the witches, so they were often used to fuel the fires to burn the witches instead of using bundles of sticks.

Hence the term "flaming faggot".

You realize I pulled that directly from the Wikipedia article Faggot (slang): Faggot, often shortened to fag, is a pejorative term broadly meaning an effeminate gay man.

Directly from the article with very little critical thought on my part. Simply presented evidence that is strongly counter to the statement you made in an attempt to disprove your assertion. It is not something I am personally involved in researching. However, the article states the term faggot probably derives for the term for an older female and earlier a "faggot-gatherer."

Directly from the article:

"The origins of the word as an offensive epithet for homosexuals are rather obscure, although the word has been used in English since the late 16th century as an abusive term for women, particularly old women,[7] and reference to homosexuality may derive from this,[6][8] as female terms are often used with reference to homosexual or effeminate men (cf. nancy, sissy, queen). The application of the term to old women is possibly a shortening of the term "faggot-gatherer", applied in the 19th century to people, especially older widows, who made a meagre living by gathering and selling firewood"

It is likely that this is where the term faggot derives from and the flaming aspect derives from one of the meanings of flaming prior to it being attached to homosexuals or faggots: www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=flaming&allowed_in_frame=0

To put it another way: Flaming faggot is a clever play on words meaning either a pile of sticks meant for burning which are on fire or a homosexual of strong passions (ie a very obvious homosexual).

**arsenalthegunners rolled a random image posted in comment #71 at Description. ** mfw the persina one
and also it was not "easy come easy go" Cyrus did a **** ton of work getting those territories into the persian empire, most of it by peaceful talks that they can join the empire for better future. also the country could not hold itself like that with different people of different cultures, nationalities and etc. And who are we kidding, Alexander did not really capture persia that easily. afterwards he even adapted some of the persian cultures, trying to combine his and persian cultures, making his own best friends and generals go against him.

FJ uses the facts they learned here in real life:

"Hey anon! Did you know that the Roman empire was only the 19th largest in the history of empires?"
"Cool! Which ones were larger?"
"Umm... Eeehh.. **** ."

FUN FACTs 2 :the railway station was located on the hill of mamayev kurgen, heavy fighting happend there (as stated). The reason for this is cause the city provieded a excelent point for guideing artillery strikes. In one occasion the germany 6th army launched 12 attacks to claim it in one day. The ground wa churned so badly there that about 500-1000+ metal fragments lay for every meter. Marshal vasily chuikov (one of the commanders of the russian army in stalingrad)

Slave (n): A person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them   
I expect there were harsh punishments for a 'worker' who refused to work. That still technically makes them slaves, no?

**** you, OP. Learn your history. In the map of the Roman Empire, it never occupied or even touched Hibernia, or what we call today Ireland. Read a book

I'm proud to say that the British Empire was the largest empire ever created.
