    People called Romanes they go the house?

    I have to be right one of these weeks
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Some are stupid, some achieve stupidity, some have stupidity thrust upon them and have to deal with it as best they can.

    Or something...

    Yep,

    No one suddenly became stupid,

    Adapted from Juvenal's

    nemo repente fuit turpissimus

    No one suddenly became an utter scroundrel.
