No, but it’s not nearly dystopia enough.We’re in the interim. We’re going to live our whole lives in the interim. That’s why we love post-apocalyptic fantasy. Because we are keenly aware of the faults in the world that we don’t know how to fix.We want to shake the etch-a-sketch of reality.How the fuck are we supposed to craft a bright future from the ashes of a world that isn’t done burning? We’re just lingering in the flames.So we demand a zero point to build from, before we’ll actually do anything.It’s the blatant voyeurism of our grandchildren’s problems that we create by refusing to act until it gets as bad as we’ve imagined it has to get, before we can proceed without having to touch the past. *deep breath* …. I think.

We want to shake the etch-a-sketch of reality.

How the fuck are we supposed to craft a bright future from the ashes of a world that isn’t done burning?

We’re just lingering in the flames.

medieval:

Completely out of context crop of the week.
14th c.

I love the looks on their faces… “Dude… I’m not sure I’m OK with this.”It’s like the beginning to “Weekend at Burney’s: Medieval edition.” That’s actually St. Clement. He was enslaved in a rock quarry by emperor Trajan. During that imprisonment, as punishment for discovering a spring and giving his fellow prisoners water (thus converting most of them, and even some non-prisoners) He was ordered to have an anchor tied around his neck and be thrown into the black sea.Legend at the time of this rendering stated that when the black sea ebbed, A shrine had miraculously appeared to house Clements body.The labeling of this image gives the impression that they are about to throw him in. But given his clasped hands, the ceiling fixtures and the fact that all literature says he was thrown from a boat… This is likely a depiction of these two unfortunate guys retrieving his body from this mysterious shrine.Parts of Clements body are said to rest in The Crimea, Italy and The Ukraine.

twnyscrwnylion replied to your post “When someone texts you “hon” and you don’t know if they’re trying to…”

if they were trying to be a french stereotype there should at least be more than one ‘hon’ :P

Haha, true. Maybe they’re Canadian?

did-you-kno:

There are around 200 dead bodies scattered across Mount Everest. Some of them, like “Green Boots” who died in 1996, serve as trail markers for other climbers. Source

Ummm… The source quotes a person as saying that the mountain was littered with “Dead and dying bodies.”Did they just like… Pass by someone like “Sorry, too late for you, we gotta make the cover of Nat-Geo, but here have a CLIF energy bar.”

So someone mentioned writing a waiver for a HEMA tournament, and my response was:

"HEMA will reduce you to poverty, cripple your body, destroy your social life, expose you to the worst characters imaginable, and fill your house with sweaty ugly items of protective clothing. Then it will kill you. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? Y/N"

Nothing has been truer.

I have been told that we only need a disclaimer for the tournament, not the whole hobby. And that we should be realistic about the risks, and not pretend it’s all fun and games.

Tournament disclaimer: If you don’t want to be hurt. Be faster than the bloodthirsty bastard swinging a 3ft piece of metal at your head. Otherwise consider stamp collecting.
