Is it just me or does that smiley seem to have short brown hair and a Chaplin style moustache?
I call it that because the other guy who made that style well known got it from Chaplin. OMG, that's the best emoticon I've ever seen. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! We've made that guy funny now! Maybe there is hope for humanity.

Actually, it was a very popular style of mustache before that guy decided to wear it. Not only Charlie Chaplin, but Oliver Hardy wore it it until that idiot gave it a bad name. Adolf was once a very common boys name in Germany. No more.

Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, wrapped in golden chains.

Dang!  The last snake I killed was in the garage and I did it with a wooden baseball bat.  I guess I can't post that in this thread.  Of course.....the observant person would notice how I subtly did......

My last snake kill was with a piece of slate... Stepping stone sized.

You did use the edge of the slate, right?

And you do sharpen all of your slate, don't you?
“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly.

Yes but don't we have another forum for primitive weapons?

Clearly we need a separate board for primitive edged weapons, to avoid confusion.  We'll have a 2-week-long moderator discussion about this, and I'll let you know when they've decided to lock me up.

Would we also need a primitive non-edged weapon and tool forum?  Possibly also a primitive semi-edged weapon and tool forum?  And a forum dedicated to primitive edged AND non-edged weapons (such as a club with a carving knife sticking out of it).......

flippy - you forgot all the SEMI-primitive edged, non-edged and semi-edged weapons and tools.

You are absolutely correct.  I'm ashamed of myself.
