Ides of March - Part 2

Today is March 15th, a day that is also known as the Ides of March.

Beware the Ides of March.

Why? Bad things happen on the Ides of March. Like your friends ganging up on you and stabbing you repeatedly.

In case you need a refresher on exactly why you should beware the Ides of March, here's a link to the SparkNotes No Fear Shakespeare edition of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. No Fear Shakespeare is awesome- it puts a modern-day translation next to the original text so you can perfectly understand what's going on. Yay SparkNotes!

And because SparkNotes is just too awesome, they also have a video for you to watch:

Educate yourselves, people! The Ides of March is serious business! Caesar didn't take it seriously, and look what happened to him! Look out for soothsayers! Keep an eye on all your friends! Beware the Ides of March!
