    Aye, indeed he does. I wonder if it'll be like last time where all his pals try to cash in on all those sweet donations.
    Any chance of you coming out of retirement and writing a satirical take on Tommy and his gang? Stick with your trusty naming convention and call it 'The Speds' or something.

    I'd certainly give it a go, it could be part of a wider saga of speds. Sargon would definitely get his own tragicomedy as well.
    Thank you for the follow, good sir. I once wrote an essay on one of your wonderful, ribald comedies - “Lysistrata” - back in university.

    Wonderful! What did you think of Lysistrata?

    It is a timeless, hilarious comedy classic. How could a play about a woman-led sex-strike, to stop a war, not be?!
    Saw you said you are into HEMA, is that a good place or should I look else where for spear hunting? Looks like I'll have a chance come this summer and I don't want to end up too mauled.

    If you're looking for spear fighting techniques, HEMA is a good place to start. There aren't too many sources on spear hunting specifically, but a number of combat techniques can be applied in the context of hunting.

    Thank you kindly, figured it'll be close but wondered if there was something aimed more for that vs another person. There's a big school near me I'll have to poke my head in.
    Wanted to keep it out of the thread but this is getting down right scary with Lucas.. I dunno exactly what line is crossed but maybe some of us regs should powwow a PM about if/what to do?

    Yeah, Lucas has crossed into the grey area where it becomes vague as to if intervention is the right thing to do, as it could potentially make the situation worse. The Farms has dealt with sex offenders before, but this time seems more confusing.

    I would say the best thing to do at the moment is to archive everything in the thread, and make sure nobody does anything that will tip Lucas over the edge. Getting a mod's perspective on this issue may clear things up a bit.

    You are right that is our best bet, I'm sure one would be happy to chime in and advise since they would know this stuff probably a lot more efficiently and effectively than we would.

    What kind of re-enactment do you do? I minored in history and am also a costumer.

    Pirates were always have a lot of fun at the shows we've shared with them, as do the Wild West and Cold War guys.

    I would say that the "lolcows" of the reenactment world mostly seem to be either US/English Civil War, Napoleonic or WW2 folks. Those periods seem to be a major attraction to cows somewhat, and also have the tendency to be extremely accident-prone.

    Isn’t that the truth. Our joke here about US Civil War reenactors is when does that battle for the Funnel Cake stand occur? I’d love to see the book you mentioned. Re-enactment battle field injuries are often horrible and hilarious at the same time. There’s a great reenactor meme site on FB somewhere which is often hystericalif you are a smart person who knows history.
    So youre a history buff i see?

    what do you focus on the most in your subject?

    My degree program at university is Ancient and Medieval History, so I tend to focus mostly in those areas - so my period of study covers everything from the end of early Egypt right through to the late 15th century AD. I'm currently working on my dissertation for my final year, and I chose late Medieval Scandinavia a my main research area. Plus I So quite a variety really.
