are we trying to end up at this page or the actual fall of troy as described in the illiad? because nothing seems to lead to the first page, and the latter doesn't have a specific entry dealing with the trojan war.

I guess it doesn't matter anymore, but I meant the Illiad one. And there was a way to get there, through Claude Monet and then Tuberculosis, Pliny the Elder, Homer... oh, I see. Whatever happened to "The fall of Troy" ? It was there! but now it's just that band >_< where is my dissambiguation page or link? what If I were looking for Johann Georg Trautmann's painting?

Seriously, was I on drugs or something? Sorry about that.

Darn you Fan I had one too.


GOD! I'm on a page where it says dissociative identity disorder but THERE'S NO LINK TO IT! Come on!!


edit: here we go

Victor Hugo > Sigmund Freud > Dissociation > Dissociative identity disorder

I originally did Freud to hypnosis and then in hypnosis they said that they used to think that it could cure identity disorders, but nothing to click on and as far as I know there aren't many other identity disorders other than multi personality aka dissociative identity.

Anyways

i had a roommate in college who was in the choir, and they had a chant that he kept repeating over and over and over and over.... :roll: it went like this:
some guy's choir chant wrote:popocatepetl is not in canada
rather in mexico mexico mexico


anyway, this one was easier than i thought.

popocatepetl -> 1994 -> american comic book -> superman


next:

mysticism -> dot matrix

extra special bonus points if you know the reference
