ON THIS DAY in 1261, the Byzantine Greeks finally recaptured Constantinople from the coalition of frat boys, party animals, and small-time hoodlums who had unaccountably mistaken the city for Jerusalem  in 1204.


  1. Dr. Bjorn Bjornson says:

    So what’s wrong with the Byzantine Geeks and why are they acting like a bunch of bullys? I’ve know Geeks all my life and they seem to be pretty quiet people who spend most of their days looking at computers and Harry Potter movies.

    Ehhhh, that’s Byzantine GREEKS, Dr. Bjornson.

    Ohhhhh, that’s very different. Never mind.
