B.C./A.D. or C.E./B.C.E.? A perfect solution!
A while back a discovered the Lindybeige YouTube channel and I can't get enough of it.
Most of his videos of his videos deal with ancient and medieval weapons & warfare, and history, but he has an occasional rant on random subjects mixed in. He has a knack for rambling slightly off topic and has a pretty witty sense of humor. Throw in his British accent and its like getting a history lesson from Monty Python.
The video above is a rant and possible solution to solving the ever pressing dilemma of using B.C./A.D. or C.E./B.C.E. Funny thing (for me) is, I've never even heard of C.E./B.C.E. until I saw this video. About 10 minutes before I started drafting this post.
It made me smile. Not only because of how funny Lloyd is, but how much I agree with him on policitcal correctness and the people who champion it.
The guy in the video's name is Llyod, not Lindybeige in case I confused you when I mentioned Lloyd.
