The Huns Assemble on Roman Border
1,575 years have since passed. It is now 2005. A global classroom of students prepares for the upcoming election of yearbook superlatives. The quarterback, Sam, is a guaranteed winner for the most popular category, and he's given his mates humiliating underwear-ripping wedgies so that there's no misunderstanding how the elections ought to turn out. His girlfriend and cheerleading team captain, Blaire, stands by her man.
The results arrive later that afternoon. The popularity category is a landslide upset for the badmitton and Lenovo-IBM computing club president. No one is suprised, except for the couple, who leave to prepare for the evenings homecoming battle with a rival school from the East side. The results are broadcasted schoolwide by the ham radio club. The next morning, a new exchange student is introduced to the class. He towers at over 7 feet 5 inches and 300 pounds. He likes basketball. No one can remember or pronounce his name.
