Meridien: What are you reading?
Delkin: I'm reading about the Standard of Ur.
Delkin: It's a 4600 year old wooden plane, probably from a box, from the Sumerian city of Ur.
Delkin: One side shows a scene of war, with a king facing a bound row of prisoners.
Delkin: The other side shows peace, with the king presiding over a banquet.
Meridien: Sounds like a double standard to me.
