The sometimes delicate, always materialistic, often complicated and usually bitchy flowers of the female species. They vary from outright gorgeous to downright hideous with excess hair and cycloptic unibrows. On the bright side, a common ground most share is that they are traditional and feminine. They like dinner dates, they want to being picked up, they enjoy wearing dresses and heels — essentially they embrace being a woman. Many live at home with their parents and learned how to cook and clean the tables from their elders. They care about their appearances so much so that they fear leaving the house without looking their best — be it make up, hair, heels, or that expensive dress. They tend to hang out in large groups of other Persian girls and bounce around town in these flocks.

In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters.

History[ edit ] The beginning of carpet weaving remains unknown, as carpets are subject to use, deterioration, and destruction by insects and rodents. Woven rugs probably developed from earlier floor coverings, made of felt , or a technique known as “flat weaving”. The technique of weaving carpets further developed into a technique known as loop weaving.
Loop weaving is done by pulling the weft strings over a gauge rod, creating loops of thread facing the weaver. The rod is then either removed, leaving the loops closed, or the loops are cut over the protecting rod, resulting in a rug very similar to a genuine pile rug. Hand-woven pile rugs are produced by knotting strings of thread individually into the warps, cutting the thread after each single knot.

Then philosophy migrated from every direction to Athens itself, at the center, the wealthiest commercial power and the most famous democracy of the time [ note ]. Socrates, although uninterested in wealth himself, nevertheless was a creature of the marketplace, where there were always people to meet and where he could, in effect, bargain over definitions rather than over prices. Similarly, although Socrates avoided participation in democratic politics, it is hard to imagine his idiosyncratic individualism, and the uncompromising self-assertion of his defense speech, without either wealth or birth to justify his privileges, occurring in any other political context.
If a commercial democracy like Athens provided the social and intellectual context that fostered the development of philosophy, we might expect that philosophy would not occur in the kind of Greek city that was neither commercial nor democratic. As it happens, the great rival of Athens, Sparta, was just such a city. Sparta had a peculiar, oligarchic constitution, with two kings and a small number of enfranchised citizens.
Most of the subjects of the Spartan state had little or no political power, and many of them were helots, who were essentially held as slaves and could be killed by a Spartan citizen at any time for any reason — annual war was formally declared on the helots for just that purpose. The whole business of the Spartan citizenry was war. Unlike Athens, Sparta had no nearby seaport. It was not engaged in or interested in commerce.
It had no resident alien population like Athens — there was no reason for foreigners of any sort to come to Sparta. Spartan citizens were allowed to possess little money, and Spartan men were expected, officially, to eat all their meals at a common mess, where the food was legendarily bad — all to toughen them up. Spartans had so little to say that the term “Laconic,” from Laconia, the environs of Sparta, is still used to mean “of few words” — as “Spartan” itself is still used to mean simple and ascetic.
