in reply to Life at the Monastery. Chapter 1

Ok, Wombat - if I get a sword, it's gotta be a SWORD!!

Think Willlliam Wallllace (BraveHeart), who's sword was 5' 7" long.   I could single-handedly defend our Monastery against the *evil* JavaScriptors and *mind-numbing* SlashDot hordes with that blade.

Nice to know that Amelinda's keeping the oil boiling, just in case. {grin}
    i don't eat carrots,

Update: 5 feet 7 inches is 1.7 meters, for all you monks who use that new-fangled metric-thingy system.

    Having met ybiC in person last friday, I question whether he would be able to even lift such a sword, much less defend anything with it. :) Of course, with the sword technology we have these days we could probably get some titanium alloy that'd be a manageable weight that would still look adequately threatening.

    While I like the idea of broadswords and boiling oil, can't we automate this somehow? Even in the big room (where he is a mere mortal), vroom managed to automate fire. Why can't we whip up some "Obfuscated Oil of Scalding Defense" or something?

    And no, I don't own 27 pairs of sweatpants.
      If tilly gets to be LazyBones,
      and AgentM gets to have a knife while alone with Petruchio,
      then I get to be Willlliam Wallllace.  {grin}
