To clarify, not the modern soaps stuff, but set during the Zhou(Chinese) or Jung(Korean) dynasties. Somewhere between 250 and 1000 BC. I was watching one yesterday and the scene was the Chinese Imperial Palace of the Empress around 650 AD. As I looked across the grounds of the palace setting I could see in the background 2 high speed trains passing. WOW...they were much further along with mass transit than I knew.
EDIT: No replies and almost no looks. I must be the only one that likes this stuff....

Handy ....What I am watching is really for the most part, fictional in nature, although some of the characters and certainly the dynasties did actually exist. The beauty is I don't feel compelled to try and remember all the characters since there is no test. Unless I find something really noteworthy I just enjoy the program. As a "keeper of odd knowledge" sometimes I get to use something I learned that I otherwise would not have known had I not watched. That makes it a 2fer.
worksforme2, I dip into some history because I want to know what happened to the people, was it good or bad for the common man and woman, how the leaders succeeded in gaining power, and what happened to the area/country in later years.
There have been some powerful countries and men that seemed to have it all and then something happened and it was all lost or only a fraction of what it used to be.

apocrypha: The "feminist agenda" has changed across the past 60 years. Some feminists of the 60's call the current iteration "fainting couch feminism", thinking it a subversion and betrayal of women's lib. Hard to get a bead on what folks think, using a broad label.

apocrypha: No aspect of that article (which I amount to a magazine offering bad diet advice) promotes rape, coercion (beyond seduction), sexual assault, and I don't understand your public performance suggesting that they would be and thus implicating bfar.

mirrororchid: pfar, being sensitive means understanding how others think and feel. It doesn't mean you are compelled to adopt their thoughts and feelings. This is a matter of understanding people including loved ones. If you aren't sensitive, you lack tools to

mirrororchid: live well. You need not soften, but you should be able to understand vulnerability. Recognizing others' distress provides me with cues when I need to use self-control or extend help. If you're strong, you should be helping others. Use what works.
