Ideas like that arn't very far fetched. If you remember, in Ancient Rome, they would have Gladiatoral Battles, arming slaves with weapons such as swords, axes, and maces, and sometimes giving them light armor, and sending them against each other. Or they would feed people to the lions and tigers. The most interesting part of all this though, was there was no cost of admission to enter the Collisseum, the stadium where these bloodsports took place, you could get in for free. I mean, we pay hundreds of dollars to watch people throw a ball around. But in Ancient Rome, we could watch people being decapitated, eaten, slayn, impaled, burned, and run over by chariots for FREE.
