The snows of winter will flow away, the ice will vanish, the air will become soft and balmy. In short, Osama Bin Laden, the annual miracle of the years will awaken and come to pass. But you ...

Lady Tevar: Paul still has the original scabbard design which he and I hashed out over 20 years ago. He will be completing it as soon as is convenient. Paul and I spent more than an hour on the phone yesterday afternoon catching up on the past 20 years. I am supremely grateful to this Thread, as wit...

Re: My Bowie Knives (Lots of Pics!)

Dave: I think the idea of recessing the back of the blade so that the brass spine fits more closely is absoluely brilliant. I believe that on the original, the brass spine was simply folded over the back of the blade and brazed into place. I looked that the pic showing how the tang of the blade is f...

Re: General SCA Thread

Lady Tevar:

I am pleased to report that through the replies I received to my original post, and those on the SCA portion of LiveJournal.com, I have reestablished contact with Mr. Marcute after more than 20 years.
Truly, the gods of fate have smiled upon me.....

Davey:

Do you have the capability of forging your designs? I am particularly interested in your 'Giant Stampede' knife. Please contact me via PM so that we might discuss the details.

Good Sir:

I have done as you suggested and posted my query on LiveJorunal. I have high hopes that I will at least find out what happened to Mr. Marcute.

My humble thanks for your kind suggestion:

Re: General SCA Thread

Greetings all: Is there any way I can use to find former members of the SCA? There is this one guy, Paul Marcute, who was involved in the SCA in the Salem, Massachusetts area in the early 1990s. I commissioned a scabbard from him for my greatsword, I paid for it and then he seemingly dropped off the...

Re: light & energy

Seraph:

Now that you have given a specific figure for the energy of a photon of light, how could it be used to determine the energy that would be released if a beam of light were to be stopped instantaneously?

Let us assume that it is possible to decerlate a photon to zero velocity instantaneously. How much energy would be released?

Since there were several instances of demons being run over and squished by tanks and other AFVs, why not call them 'crunchies' or 'squishies'? I can just imagine some Abrams driver singing to himself "...Romper Bomper, Stomper Boo <CRUNCH> :lol:

In considering the size of the gates into the Eternal City, I am reminded of certain scenes in LOTR: Return of The King.

Greetings, all: If I was going to choose an anti-zombie weapon (for use in a Yonkers-type battle, etc), I'd go with a water-cooled machine gun.

Stuart: For even larger artillery throw-weights, there's the M65 cannon. The W19 shell it fired weighed some 600 lbs, and I'm sure it is possible to design an conventional HE shell for it. Next up, the Iowas could be reactivated and shells fired through portals to wherever is needed. The 1900-lb HC ...
