also it would be very hard to detect overflow of the canal/lagoon caused
by the displacement of water due to your body. and i do hope you don't
pollute perl6 with the canal water than seeped into ya! :)

and Archimedes was sicilian (syracuse IIRC) so does that count as italy?
it wasn't part of italy in those days.

now if you suddenly discovered the rest of the apocalypses in a hidden
chamber below the stairs in that canal, that would be fine cause for you
to strip and run around shouting eureka!
