After watching the British Mall heist by mounted motorcyclists, I have come to believe knieves are for wussy folk. Give me an axe any day. I can rob jewelers or cleave heads off muggers. A real motorcyclist's defense weapon.

That may not be as sarcastic of a remark as you probably intended. I'm not sure if it was mentioned earlier in this thread, or in one somewhere else, but the laws in some states make an axe or hatchet the better carry alternative, from a legal standpoint.

It's sort of like when I lived in California. Carrying a loaded firearm in your car was a misdemeanor, but having a larger knife or a set of nunchucks was a felony (or something really stupid like that). The law obviously worked well, because the entire time I lived there, I never once heard of a drive-by nunchucking.

Just because I'm paranoid, it doesn't mean the whole world isn't out to get me.
Words mean things.

My life is not without meaning. I can be held up as a bad example.

Come on, does nobody here carry a lance? I mean, it seems the logical choice for a mounted rider...

My collapsible Ivanhoe Special is in the shop for retipping. It's taking entirely too long.

It makes absolutely no difference whether you are considered a citizen or a subject. You still have exactly one vote, and it still counts for bugger all.

At least that's something, and that's better than nothing.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid
