Fact of the Day: Benedict Spartan


Despite being a great general, the Spartan Pausanias decided to betray both Sparta and Greece to Persia. However some Greeks found out, and decided to formally arrest him. He caught wind of their plan, and hid out in a holy temple. Since it was sacred land, they couldn't touch him. They instead walled up the area, and let him starve to death.

Adam about your question the only difference between a greek yogurt and a normal plain yogurt is the consistency, greek yogurt is more creamy but you can use perfectly regular yogurt!
