Russia met Augustus with heat and smog. This anomalous temperature deprived the inhabitants of both normal work and normal entertainment. In general, everyone is waiting for autumn and hoping that the situation will improve, because even the brain cannot function normally. But we believe in you and hope that you still have the strength and desire to participate in contests and receive prizes.
By the way, in Ireland it is still more fun, they generally consider August as the first month of autumn. But for us, residents of Russia who are not tempted by the Gulf Stream, August is the last month of summer, though not the most pleasant this year, but nonetheless a month of rest and entertainment.
Did you know that a distant relative of the great Caesar, Octavian Augustus
, in whose honor this summer month was named, loved science, wrote poems himself, and his name even gave the name to a whole epoch that was known for the flourishing of the sciences and arts of the Roman Empire
The August contest at TrendClub.ru
is about this - what will be the rest and entertainment of the future. Perhaps now we will always live in the smoke and in this heat, but we must somehow have fun.
At the time of Octavian Augustus, gladiatorial fights ( Bread and circuses
!) Were popular, in the times of Augustus Saxon
hunting and balls, during the times of the Mexican emperor Agustin Iturbide
We all know how diverse the entertainment has become in recent years. This is connected with the scientific and technological revolution, and with the collapse of the USSR, with the development of the alcohol industry, the entertainment industry, and in general, with the evolution of humanity. So, we and you know this and need not remind once again.
It is interesting to assume
how people of the future will relax. Not your plans for the rest of the sea next year, and perhaps about how your children and grandchildren will be delayed.
