    I know some of you collect out there. I just bought myself one, and I plan on buying more. Pics forthcoming.

    I used to be pretty big into medieval culture...last year even. So much that I was fairly close to moving to NC to become an armourers apprentice. I had several cheap ebay items that looked cool, but never anything even halfway credible as far as weapons go. I did have a full suit of armour, a couple of pieces were fairly documentable, but it was sport armour and definately not replica.

    I have an inexpensive ninja-styled full tang blade. Quite sturdy, and it would make a great practice sword, but that is about it. I am sure that a real sword guru would laugh at me for buying it. Though, I can't really afford a weapon of much higher caliber.
     
  4. Well, no sword , but here is a pic of me about to smite a foe with my deadly battle axe :D

    If someone would photoshop a ninja sword into the hand of the fat elvis impersonator with the cameltoe you would get a pretty accurate picture of my day-to-day attire.

    I noticed that too, right away. Maybe the person who designed it was jewish. There's a church in Italy with a star of David on it because the architect of the church was jewish.

    I will ask my Colonel friend he might know since he is a Military history buff.

    I AM growing my hair out, but not quite that long. It's just getting too long to spike anymore. I'll take a pic of mine when I find the cable for the camera.

    Oh what, y'all thought y'all wasn't gon' see me?
    Check my, dangerous slang atrocious
    When I let these nuts hang, focus, it's Wu Tang
    What the ****'s a Hootie and the Blowfish
    I wave my Black Flag at the roaches
    who approaches, these twin, supersoakers
    Who have poisonous darts for culprits
    Too late to get your blow gun un-holstered
    You're left buttered up and lightly toasted
    So what, I drink and smoke too much
    So what I cuss too much, shut the **** up!
