Well there you have it. Thank you for your independent research Loki, but we now definitively know what a sword weighs.

We could just ask Paul? He has one and actively practices with it?

How much practice do you really need with a watermelon, though?

What is appropriate attire for a groomsbear or groomstwink?

Just how much blood will you be expected to drink?

How long does a typical bride-on-bride swordfight last?

Who the hell eats fries in a cup with ketchup like that. That's a great way to get your hands messy and get a poor uneven distribution of ketchup for each individual fry!

That, however, is a sign of nascent sociopathy.

Nascent? Pfft. Maybe 25 ago, but I've been doing this since I was a lad. This sociopathy is extant.

Real Americans appreciate an even ketchup distribution, but those liberal elites won't even call ketchup ketchup. SAD!

Autonomous Trap 001

“What you’re looking at is a salt circle, a traditional form of protection—from within or without—in magical practice. In this case it’s being used to arrest an autonomous vehicle—a self-driving car, which relies on machine vision and processing to guide it. By quickly deploying the expected form of road markings—in this case, a No Entry glyph—we can confuse the car’s vision system into believing it’s surrounded by no entry points, and entrap it.”

D&D had infamously incorrectly heavy weights for weapons for decades. I've heard that Gygax intended the weights in that chart to represent an 'encumbrance value' rather than raw weight, a longsword is harder to carry around than 3lbs of rope, but I don't think I've ever seen a reputable source for that.

We have the above Melons Metric to prove that if that wasn't the intent, it certainly is the case now.

Maybe there's a market for open world games. But if so, they must be appealing to some part of the human psyche that I lack. I don't want anything to do with them. They barely even qualify as games to me.

They'd bother me a hell of a lot less if they were just a genre I could ignore, like sports games or first person shooters. But lately all my favorite game series keep getting new games that are open world games, abandoning the genre of games that the rest of the series was. In the last few years this has happened to Arkham, Dragon Age, Final Fantasy, and now Legend of Zelda. I can't fucking stand it. I want to set all of these producers on fucking fire and murder their children in front of them while they burn.
I can relate.
