I'm a bit of a scholar when it comes to Greek Myths (Aeg can attest to that). Now, someone can pick a character, and I will give you information on them, if I can.
What was the age difference between Oedipus and is mother? Knowing it may add even more horror to this myth :D
Age is not exactly a common thing mentioned in myths. :rolleyes: I'd imagine that she would be in her 20s-30, as women married are beared children at ages as young as 13 in that time period. Can we try to have the questions be a little less, specific? No offense to you intended.

I would like to know a bit more about heracles?
Heracles eh? Tell me specifically that which you wish to hear of him. Here are the twelve tasks he had to do after killing his wife and son in a rage. They were to help him "absolve" of his "sin" so to speak.
Kill the lion of Nemea. He strangled it without further ado. Kill the nine-headed Hydra. Two new heads would grow on the Hydra from each fresh wound, and one was immortal. Heracles burned the eight and put the immortal one under a rock. Capture the Ceryneian Hind. After running after it for many months, he finally trapped it. Kill the wild boar of Erymanthus. A wild battle, but pretty straightforward: Heracles won. Clean the Augean Stables of King Augeas. He succeeded only by diverting a nearby river to wash the muck away. Kill the carnivorous birds of Stymphalis. Capture the wild bull of Crete. Capture the man-eating mares of Diomedes. Obtain the girdle of Hippolyta, the queen of the Amazons (not all that easy, actually). Capture the oxen of Geryon. Take the golden apples from the garden of the Hesperides, which was always guarded by the dragon Ladon. Heracles tricked Atlas into getting he apples by offering to hold the Earth for Atlas. When he returned with the apples, Heracles asked him to take the Earth for a moment so he could go get a pillow for his aching shoulders. Atlas did so, and Heracles left with his apples. Bring Cerberus, the three-headed dog of Hades, to the surface world.
Man, I can't wait to take Mythology next year. The teacher, Mrs. Horne, is seriusly, schzophirnic, or something. He entire class is decorated with SOuth Park, SPongebob, and dancing hamsters. She sells food and coke. SHe is absolutly hilarious, everyone loves her.
Alright, any other requests? Not that I mind getting a bit of a break between each one, it can take a while to get all the information, from my head or otherwise.
