E-bay finds II


tomt24: Thanks Tancred. Apr 9, 2020 20:10:32 GMT
tancred: Take that with a grain of salt. Been a while since I've read up on the Teutonic Knights. And every book in English or translated in to English that I've read on the subject seems to have been written for those who already know the basics. Apr 9, 2020 16:57:51 GMT
tancred: I believe each new Grand Master also kept his own personal arms from before he entered the order. So, there could be any number of different colors associated with each individual Grand Master. Apr 9, 2020 16:56:34 GMT
tancred: Tomt24, yellow. If what I've read and led to believe is true, the Grand Master's arms of the order included a black eagle on yellow field at the center of the black cross on white field. Apr 9, 2020 16:54:40 GMT
tomt24: Are there any colors associated with the Teutonic Knights outside black&white? Apr 9, 2020 15:26:44 GMT
RufusScorpius: Since barbarians aren't men, they cannot impugn my honor. Apr 9, 2020 12:46:16 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: If SpongeBob acts too annoying he'll find himself to be a pain in the ar$e. Apr 9, 2020 6:32:13 GMT *
treeslicer: Ahhhh, the prehistory of German brown violin varnish. (:)) Apr 9, 2020 6:11:29 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: You Romans have just sponges on a stick. We barbarians use Roman helmet crests! Apr 9, 2020 4:34:57 GMT
RufusScorpius: Seems to me the barbarians got real tame and friendly when they found out we had toilet paper. Apr 8, 2020 20:00:55 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Yeah, best way to overtake fleeing Roman legionaries. Apr 8, 2020 18:48:33 GMT *
RufusScorpius: Must be why barbarians fight naked. Apr 8, 2020 18:39:59 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Pants just would slow down fleeing Roman legionaries! Apr 8, 2020 17:37:53 GMT
RufusScorpius: That's because you are ashamed of your skinny chicken legs. And a tunic is a long shirt. We don't wear skirts like Celts. Apr 8, 2020 13:05:49 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: We barbarians wear pants, not skirts like Romans. Apr 8, 2020 12:38:00 GMT
RufusScorpius: Pants? How unmanly. I don't fault you for suggesting that because what would a barbarian know about manliness? Apr 8, 2020 12:35:35 GMT *
AndiTheBarvarian: Just wear your lorica next time, only with pants. Apr 8, 2020 6:05:48 GMT
RufusScorpius: Everyone in Germany is now totally convinced that all Americans are cowboys living on a farm, whereas the people in Mexico didn't seem to notice anything unusual Apr 7, 2020 20:47:00 GMT
RufusScorpius: I'm working from home now. Was on an international conference when my chickens decided to start squawking very loudly and for a long time. Could have been worse. at least I was properly dressed Apr 7, 2020 20:45:17 GMT
RickDastardly: You know you've been inside too long, when you go out to the street to empty the rubbish and half way through remember to check that you are wearing pants! (Seriously!!!) Apr 7, 2020 15:48:31 GMT
