Hysteria is a chaotic and irrational emotional state caused by seeing how the world really operates.

Two novels can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other involves orcs.

Compare "socialist" countries like Norway and Sweden to the ultimate libertarian/capitalist paradise that is Somalia. Personally, I'd rather live in socialist Norway than "free-market, small government" Somalia. -- General Zang

Eagles fly with eagles and crows fly with crows. If you're doing eagle business and crows are commenting, change your altitude.

Parkour - the French have made a martial art out of fleeing.

"Although I don't dress like Satan any more, I am still down with the Devil and I will go medieval on your ass." -- The Undertaker

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. ~~Aristotle

Maces and swords, colorful helms,
shields riven and cast aside:
these shall we see at the start of the battle,
and also many vassals struck down,
the horses of the dead and wounded running wild.
And when he enters the combat,
let every man of good lineage
think of nothing but splitting heads and hacking arms;
for it is better to die than to live in defeat. -- Bertran de Born, 1184

A practical explanation for the futility of especially heavy weapons is that they are slow. In physics terms, doubling the mass of a weapon can provide twice the strike energy, but doubling the velocity of a strike provides four times the energy.
