How heavy is a greatsword? I mean I'd like to swing one but I suspect I don't have the strength to wield one.

Think you would be able to swing one Kitty.

My best guess would be it weighing somewhere around 2.3kg (5 pounds) to 3.6kg (8 pounds) and be 150cm (59 inches) to 200cm (79 inches) in length (with around 25cm or 10 inches of that being grip) though I might be wrong about that…I'm not that well-versed in sword morphology

Could you give the dimensions and weight of the sword you were training with Limey?

Around 2kg (4-5lb) and 1.6m in length.
The Greatsword is longer then I am tall? How do you wield something like that?

Look up Manga Berzerk he will show you in great detail how you wield a greatsword taller then yourself.

Lol on one of the videos for the greatsword combat.:

How many have you killed with that great sword?
13 on purpose.
On purpose?

Oh my copy of chuthulu mythos came in today (Amazon prime ftw yo) I did find a better price. I have not had a chance to look through it yet.

And I'm all caught up now.

No, these were how I announced that we were having Crookshanks.

ABSOLUTELY NO MORE CHILDREN FOR US.

Sorry, if I hadn't been sleep deprived I would've made that clearer.


Ah so no new strangely nicknamed younglings that we get to hear about.

Wait, Cap, you were serious?!?

I thought you were just goofing off in response to NH's post about his cholesterol screen and not being pregnant.

Tequila Sunrise spurred my trip down memory lane.

This is how I revealed that we're having both children (in fairness to dad, he only fell for it twice because there was 7 years between children, and he has a weakness for knock knock jokes).

To reiterate, NO MORE CHILDREN.

I intend to have many many offspring. I intend to do my best to make sure the potential results of idiocracy never occur. However I do not know if I will give them strange nicknames.... I probably will. If I don't name them all after super heros. Yells: Bruce Clark Diana Time for dinner!

Well, they have regular names, I just gave them nicknames here because everyone was doing it.

Spoiler alert, Crookshanks is named after what I thought would be the absolute best princess name that can also be shortened into something more modern.

Tiny T-Rex is named after someone from Bloom County..

Ugh. I got so damned sick of Robert Jordan dicking his readers around that I threw my entire series away. It was about the time that I realized that the plot of the book I had just finished was virtually identical to the plot of the previous book.

I met him before he died. Got his autograph. Was a nice guy. And yes one book in the series was identical to the last book. I dont know if that was because he was dying or what.

At this point I'm thinking we'd all be better off if we just took away the entire state's right to vote, and maybe just had Georgia and Alabama assign their elected officials for them.

Couldn't be worse...

You could try paying Spain to take it back...

I don't know if you have enough money to convince Spain to take it back, though.

Given the context, I am 99.9% sure those were quotes about his parents' reactions when he told them about Crookshanks.


Just beat a mill druid with my quest druid, and it felt SOOOOOOOO good!

And I didn't even need to cheat out an Ancient One. :)

(For those who don't play Hearthstone, it's like my non-opped ranger single-handedly defeated the opped druid villain.)

We introduced the kids to the first LOTR movie last night (the extended version). I was worried about whether or not they were big enough, and then Teensy Valeros started reading aloud all the subtitles whenever people were speaking in Sindarin, and I figured, yeah, I guess he *is* big enough now.

Bonus line of the evening: When Lursk first emerges from the muddy looking ooze in the pits below Orthanc, Val said, "Wow! What is that?"
WW said, "Nutella."

Also, I made cheese grits with ham this morning for breakfast, because it was 41 degrees outside and I like grits.

The kids both hated it.

Reading The Wheel of Time a second time, it's clear just how juvenile most of the characters are.

"Despite traveling with her for over a year and proving over and over again what her motives are, Moiraine is aes sedai and therefore completely untrustworthy so I can't tell her anything even if it's likely to help us survive raw evil!" To be fair, Moiraine keeps unnecessary secrets too.

"Waaaaaaaaaaa, the Power makes me feel icky, I demand you ask permission before healing my life-threatening wounds, aes sedai!!!"

I have yet to read that series. Having said that, I am rereading David Eddings' The Riftwar Saga. I have my original copy at home and it is one of my favorite reads. The copy I am reading on the tablet is his "directors cut". He had to pare it down to have it published the first time. After a decade, he went through it and added the stuff back in and rewrote some passages. I think it is an improvement.

I never got on with 'The Wheel of Time', but I liked Robert Jordan's Conan stories, mainly because I got to learn lots of words for breasts and bottoms that I hadn't known of before. Also, there were tulwars.

Stand outside their window and breathe heavily. Also get their phone number and call them at 2 am to tell them in a husky voice you know where they live.

The riftwar saga is by Raymond E. Feist, not David Eddings. I read pretty much all of David Eddings Fantasy series - The Belgraid, Malloreon, Dreamers... So getting author names wrong is a pet peeve of mine.

My BF went for a Soulcalibur 6 competition held in a bombshelter yesterday lol. I might be trying to pick up Soulcalibur 6, but the only fighting game I've ever played was Little Fighter lol.

I'm trying to learn to play Geralt in soul calibur 6,but hitting 2 buttons at the same time isn't as easy as it looks...

My BF said I might be better off trying to use another character that has longer reach on attacks. I dunno, I don't know any of the other characters lol.

When you get back from the police station, apologize and claim it was all a big misunderstanding.

Sneak in while they're sleeping and leave a culinary delicacy, cow heads for instance have many, many reusable parts. Put it somewhere they'll find it easily, like next to their pillow if they're sleeping, or in a microwave so it's easily cooked. Including a note showing you're dialed in to the neighborhood is always a good thing, maybe something like "I know what you did!". And instead of writing it cut out letters from old magazines, this will ensure it's legible.

Bake them cookies/cakes and start from there? Ask for comments on said goodies and how they could be improved,swaying you want to bake for your son's school function and you don't want public embarrassment? I would be fair happy to talk baking shop with you.
