christain: Oh wow...We just had an electrical 'brown-out'. That's never happened here that I remember. Weird thing is, some of the lights went off, others didn't. Dish TV went off. AC shut off. Everything's normal now though. Happened at my sister's next door too. ? Aug 18, 2019 22:20:59 GMT
ouroboros: N I could almost buy a small airship with what I'd save :) 95$ off Aug 18, 2019 15:10:21 GMT
ouroboros: Now all I need is an airship! Aug 18, 2019 15:08:45 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: I knew you would say that! 8-) Aug 18, 2019 11:19:06 GMT *
christain: HAH-HAH! You were RIGHT, Andi!!! I just woke up and checked the MRL DotD...and it IS the 'Airship Captain's Katana'. (rofl) You must be psychic. (rofl) Aug 18, 2019 10:29:02 GMT
christain: I kinda feel shaken and stirred right now. The bed's looking really good. Long day at the wood shed tomorrow. :P G'night, all. (zzz) Aug 18, 2019 3:22:56 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: You can have a shakened and a stirred martini at the same time! Aug 18, 2019 1:56:34 GMT
christain: (rofl) Or take the rubber bulb off and make it a double-barrel beer bong! (rofl) Aug 18, 2019 1:44:43 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Aaand this: www.atlantacutlery.com/bombay-double-bulb-taxi-horn It can be mounted on a nasal helmet! Makes you invincible! Aug 18, 2019 1:28:02 GMT *
christain: You'd also need that snazzy SteamPunk utility belt with the clips to carry it around. Everybody needs a utility belt. :D (rofl) Aug 18, 2019 1:14:10 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: P-) www.museumreplicas.com/airship-captains-katana Aug 18, 2019 1:00:35 GMT
christain: You'd be the talk of the neighborhood wearing a top hat and swinging a katana around! (rofl) Aug 18, 2019 0:44:55 GMT
ouroboros: I missed the leather steampunk top hat damnitall Aug 18, 2019 0:43:17 GMT
christain: I said I MAY do a vinegar treatment. If I do, I'll definitely post pics. :D Aug 18, 2019 0:41:46 GMT
ouroboros: I watched the spearhead fly by...lemme know via some pics how that turns out Aug 18, 2019 0:34:39 GMT *
christain: Got my Viking spear head just today from the DotD last week! :D This thing's bad-ass---solid as a rock. I may do a vinegar treatment on it for some artificial aging. 8-) Aug 17, 2019 20:59:32 GMT *
christain: nternal805---That's a nice Gladius! If it were in my collecting interests, I would do that. For now, my CS Gladius machete will have to do. ;) Aug 17, 2019 20:43:36 GMT
christain: Ouro---At one time, 'deep end' might have been a good nickname for Deepeeka. (rofl) Seems like the quality has really upped in the last few years. 8-) Aug 17, 2019 20:40:21 GMT
nternal805: My Deepeeka Gladius is awesome quality and has incredible historical accuracy . www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=AH2007&name=Fulham+Gladius Aug 17, 2019 20:25:34 GMT
ouroboros: Oh bloody hell I ain't typing it again. Aug 17, 2019 20:22:48 GMT
