Today we’re talking about the Aztecs! The Aztecs built a vast empire, one that outpaced, out-staged, and out-populated the likes of Paris at the time. They were a powerhouse warrior based society with an interesting obsession with human sacrifice. When did they show up? When did they build their empire? And what happened when the Spaniard Hernan Cortes showed up with 400 soldiers? An amazing city built on a lake, a prophecy falsely fulfilled, the worst ball game ever played, and a lot of violent death at the hands of all the teams involved in today's Timesuck!
