Shit....I was watchin that dang bewbs and dragons show!
Yeah, well, nothing wrong with boobs and dragons!LOL one of the things which bugs me about that show is that they:
1. Got Renaissance level trade and commerce.
2. Metallurgy advanced enough to create suits of articulated full plate cavalry armor.
3. Already know how to produce Wildfire, which is a self-oxidizing incendiary that does not need external oxygen to run on.
So, what is keeping their artisan guilds from putting 2 and 2 together and turning out new equipment that will greatly enhance their warfighting capability? Such as a wagon mounted "Spear Sent From Heaven", or shoulder fired "Thunder Lances". All using Wildfire in solid or gel form as propellant, and shooting a lead or stone bolt up to a mile away. An army of dragons and zombies would be absolutely no match for an infantry force with rank upon rank of 'thunder lancers'.
I am thinking that the producers probably do not want to upset the anti-gun organizations that bankroll their work, or they are just resolutely sticking to the old cliche that only swords and dragons define the 'fantasy' genre.
What is the longest all time thread that is not a Sticky?
How far away is this one??
Answer: Motivational Pictures thread. (I am sure we can count version 1.0 of that one right in. Old one was deleted by accident. New emperor on the throne but same dynasty.)
Answer: About 7 years and 54,000 posts away.
I don't really remember that far back, but i probably started the political shit... i tend to do that...^Me? I was on Arf.com stirring shit up and giving people grief over their dinner / lunch pic posts if they did not have enough spare mags for their rifle, no sidearm or knife, etc. Or clowning them on the alcoholic beverage of their choice.
So......what was in the Bear Pit if there was no politics?
So where did all of you spend your time back when there were no politics in the Bear Pit? Currently, the new posts link yields about 10 buy-sell-trade posts and another 5 or 6 in the Pit or Maggie's. The left over 4 or 5 are actual shooting content. Been a long time since people were just talking about what they were shooting or building to shoot.
^^^^This right here.With the recent influx of new members I’m finding the shooting threads both irritating and frustrating. Go look at the x15+ thread!
Let them eat fungi^^^^This right here.
I'm not hale enough to do a lot of shooting anymore. If I'm not shooting there's no reason to reload ammo. My stock is secure.
When I was giving advice on shooting and reloading, there was always someone that was willing to argue with every fargin word I typed. I don't abide a fool much.
It became a colossal waste of my time.
Let them eat cake.
