The more I think about the lost Epic of Telegonus, the crazier the entire thing gets. Telegonus and Telemachus basically team up to marry each other's mother
If it isn't clear, here is their 'family tree'
thought this could do with Odysseus' parents added in

In New Zealand news today, so called 'political expert' Hamish Price has embarrassed himself again. A man famous for insisting that the Romans did not have any roads since they didn't have cars 😂😂

This meme shows up every year at this time and while it's funny it's not quite true, and an excellent opportunity to learn more about the Roman calendar!
Yes, Julius Caesar did reform the calendar and yes the motnhs July and Augustus were renamed after him and Augustus. But there had been 12 months for a lot longer!
The reason two months were added in goes back to very early Roman times, when they counted winter as one long month rather than three. When they decided to divide it up, it led to two extra motnhs coming in. This is the simplified version of course!
