      This reply makes me wanna read the book. It has a low score on Goodreads but those reviews are often not trustworthy.

      Plato was also a hoplite and a wrestler. He would have mopped the floor with 99.9% of modern day academics.

      Mine is Diomedes, so probably.

      But honestly with him and , I do wonder how Tyson would fare in the Golden Age of Greek Myth. In his prime, at least, he was very physically formidable. I think he would have made a good showing at Troy. Now, of course, most of the heroes of the Greeks, before the War and during it, had the favor of this or that god or goddess to boost them up and help them out. But surely Iron Mike could get a god or two on his side, right? I can see Apollo taking a liking to him. Maybe Hera. Definitely Ares.

      Actually Tyson might wind up fighting for the Trojans if he got transported back in time.

        He'd say something arrogant and Zeus would turn him into a pigeon or something.

          No no, the pigeon would be his best friend. And he would have to spend the rest of his days solving mysteries to attone.

        As a boxer he'd likely go up against the twins Castor and Polydeuces with Polydeuces being the heroic boxer.
        Unfortunately for Tyson Polydeuces was the son of Leda and Zeus so his story would be one of a huge peak boxer opponent who is hyped up as a champion until one day the Argonauts on their journey sail by and Polydeuces beats him and either Polydeuces or him and his brother Castor or all the Argonauts then kill Tyson cause that's how they rolled.

    i'll never understand this quote. he was in prison, he became "wrapped up" in books, and this was bad? he should have focused on being in prison?

      Sounds like you're just very dumb. He went on a public mea culpa after his release announcing himself to be religious and reading literature etc.

      He then disavowed that because it's unfullfilling compared to the hustle.

      "I read the Marvel (comic books). That stuff," he told reporters. "When I was in prison I was wrapped up in all those deep books. That Tolstoy crap. People shouldn't read that stuff. When we read these books, what purpose does it serve in this day and time? What purpose does it serve?"

      He has low verbal iq; what's there to understand? People who make such statements are the equivalent of those guys who can't imagine an apple or similar test, and rather than admitting this, they belittle those who can. Is it any wonder that his life seems interesting because of the sheer amount of avoidable and simple mistakes he has made. If he had the ability to appreciate books, he would have achieved much more than bashing people's skulls in.

        Cope. He is far wiser than you think just because he was a black boxer.
        Yes, he made mistakes because he became very famous and wealthy while he was young but he became wiser thanks to that. He's the modern day Socrates.

      Tyson is exactly the sort of character Conan would encounter in one of his stories. They'd become temporary allies and partner up. Not sure Tyson would survive the story; Howard sometimes killed those sorts of characters before the story was over, and sometimes he wouldn't.

        It was 19 years and also one extra year roughly when he was caught following his resignation as mayor before he fled from the galleys a second time to save Cosette from the Thenardiers. His prison time was roughly 19 1/2 to 20 years if you count his second stint in the galleys.

      It is funny how I'm rereading LOTR and Aragorn is just murking orcs left and right. And wolves, so far, since I'm still in Fellowship, but he's just cutting down anyone who comes his way. The scene in the film where he's facing all those Uruks isn't even a slight exaggeration from the books, he really is that much of a badass.

    Tyson enjoyed more non-fiction. He used to read a lot of conquerors' biographies like Alexander the Great when he was starting his professional career.
    I was quite surprised when he referenced facts that I had forgotten about and the insights he gave in an interview. Like how is it possible that this guy who grew up in poverty and spent 20 years getting punched in the head had more interesting insights than these "academics"

    holy frick this place is such a fricking shithole, what the frick happened?

    the "people" posting now don't even try hiding the fact that they have the absolute lowest, most unrefined, most unsophisticated, ignorant, shit-tier tastes possible. i don't frequent r*ddit but i imagine it would be something like this.

    are you all underaged brown peasant immigrants who just learned about ironman? why don't you make a thread about your favourite Black person marvel character next? actually, post the dysgenic, simian mongrel known as andrew tate, you simpletons. you probably think that he represents right wing values.

    oh cool, and i get to wait a minute before posting on this piece of shit? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    why the frick would anyone spend time here? it's obvious that the average IQ and ability to focus has completely plummeted and you're basically talking to children. this place sucks so much ass, you may as well watch cartoons (i know that none of you simpletons can actually finish a book that doesn't have pictures).
