Psychovant the Duck again, hacking the Powernaut pages for your American 
History lesson.  Last week we talked about how the strongest nation in 
the world just wanted to loot other nations... Sound familiar?  Only 
this time it's Spain!  In this lesson, the looting starts!

How did the White Man beat the Aztecs, despite being incredibly 
outnumbered?  Because Aztecs didn't even rule all of Mexico, being 
crazy-ass bastards who did human sacrifice. 
(http://www.aztec-history.com/aztec-empire.html)  So they got people the 
next state line over to fight against them all the time, including when 
the Spanish came.  And their tech was pre-Roman Empire.  They had the 
wheel, but no beasts of burden until Spanish brought horses, so what's 
the point.  So it was like a "Conquistador in the Sea of Time" thing.

   - Down in South America, it would be kind of the same thing.  Incas 
didn't have rebels, but the Spanish managed to ambush them just before 
the Incas could ambush them first.
