Top 20 Challengers for the role of Spartacus in 123RF

Intertitle from the television program Spartac...

The TV-series Spartacus: Blood and Sand has gained huge followers. According to John Hannah, an actor who plays the role of Batiatus said that It is "…the most explicit, violent series’ ever made…”
Set in Rome in 73BC – in a world where women are preposterously nubile, and men are preposterously muscle-bound – the show is, indeed, unlike anything we have seen before. When the Thracian slave Spartacus fights in the arena, vast crowns of blood fan suddenly from head wounds, arms are scythed off, a man bereft of legs is pitchforked in the back, and blood spots spatter the camera lens. It looks like a computer game crossed with a cartoon and littered with full-frontal nudity and extended sex scenes.
Below are some top 20 challengers from 123RF for the role of Spartacus. Kindly note that the images are arranged randomly.

Inspiration

Do you know what the word "inspiration" is?

I was told that it's made out of the component words "in" and "spirit", in other words, it's about getting "in spirit", meaning being motivated and excited about yourself and your life. By doing so you're at one with all connections with your mind and body that makes it possible for us to take action to make all things we desire possible.

But, you and I both know that this state of mind is a rarity, especially to surrounding factors that often encourages otherwise. Doors to inspirations are often shut but it's really up to you to open it.
 
Here are the 8 keys that can help open these doors:

1) Enjoyment. It would take a spiritual master (or a nut) to enjoy washing the dishes or taking out the trash, or to slave on on something you don't really like.. so find something you really excites you. It can be anything you really enjoy.
