"Then Fall, Ceasar"
Small History Lesson:
The Roman dictator Julius Ceasar was assassinated on March 15th or the "Ides of March" by Roman senators, led by his supposed friend Marcius Junius Brutus and a few others. The reason for his brutal killing was that apparently he was getting a bit too big for his toga and started passing laws and reformation without passing anything by the Senate. Not only that, but he was a big reason the triumvirate only lasted about 2.3 seconds. Let's just say he wasn't really super willing to share his position of power. After proclaiming himself "dictator for life" the senators were basically up to *here* with his shit and decided to hatch a plan to shred him into a fishing net. It's said that he was actually planning on skipping the meeting because he was told he was going to die and was in danger, but his ol buddy pal Brutus was all "Hey cmon man, we want you there! There's no knives I PROMISE my guy." The reason they planned to kill him within the meeting hall was that it was the ONLY place that Caesars guards were not allowed to enter. Senators only!
The deed was soon done, starting with a senator tugging on his robe and exposing his back for others to stab their knives into. It only escalated from there. Ceasar bled to death on the floor with over 23 stab wounds in the back, legs, face, eyes, neck, gut, and everywhere else you could stick a knife into. It's said that when Ceasar saw his buddy pal Brutus withdraw his dagger, he said the words "Et tu, Brute"? (You too Brutus?) ---------------------------------
