comment Is “Friends, Romans, …” a historical speech?
@YannisRizos: I had actually waited a bit to see if you would answer. When the question became a popular question I figured that I better select Mark's answer (and he provided a great link). Go ahead and answer and I'll accept it!

comment When did polygamy start becoming illegal?
I must dispute this answer. I recently had a conversation with the two wives of a neighbour. Points #3 (Human Nature) and #4 (Economics) are in contradiction to their experience as they shared with me. Though the first wife was initially jealous of the second wife, but they became friendly after a few years. The living conditions were never uncomfortable as both women (and children) lived in separate houses on the same land. Additionally, the husband is dirt-dirt-poor, so economics is not a factor.

I found the Wikipedia link to [Air (Classical Element)[en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_%28classical_element%29] from your Empedocles link. That is about as close to an answer as I expect to come, so I'm accepting this answer. Thank you!
