Re: What is your favorite fruit?

Hey guys I just found out that by definition the "avocado" is also classified as a fruit!! Now that really shocked me when I read it. To me the avocado has vegetable written all over it. But it was about 10 years ago that an old girlfriend of mine won a bet with me that the tomato is a fruit as wel...

Re: What is your favorite fruit?

A good crisp apple takes some beating- Jazz, Braeburn or a Discovery for preference....though a bright green Granny Smith is always appreciated. We've always got lemons, limes and tangerines in the house- so they are a favourite too. Raspberries, whipped cream and crushed meringues make the best des...

Re: Glock 17, Austrian gun: How good is it, asks an Austrian who has no clue about guns..

Wartstein my friend, if you don't mind me bringing it up, regarding the Glock knives, what are your opinions of them? They seem to be made with some type of quality Austrian carbon spring steel and are coated for corrosion-resistance. I have read and heard that they are very tough and durable, and ...

Re: Would Fixed Blade H1 Knife stop Salt Water Crocodile?

You're talking about a predator that weighs over a thousand pounds. And eats sharks. I don't think any knife is going to stop it. Unless it's a light saber. Lol, exactly Tom. Just pure devastating power. You wouldnt knew what hit ya. Heck, even if you saw it coming, just the pure force alone, you c...

Re: Indian vs Swedish-made "Mora Knife": What do you think of these?

I operate on the principle of "If one thing is half the price of a seemingly similar thing, then there's generally a very good reason for that"

In this case that reason is a blade made of low end steel run at 52 HRC.

Taketh thee thine longest bargepole to said knife and apply it with vigour :)

Re: Least liked thing about a favored Spydie

Lack of jimping on my Yojimbo 2 always puzzles me for a second or so when I grab it. (Yes, I know the sage Mr Janich doesn't do jimping so that's why I use the word 'puzzled') The 'extra' jimping in on the Manix 2's liners at the rear also puzzles me- especially when they are no corresponding slots ...

Re: How good was AUS-10?

It seems we all had an all steel, combo edge AUS-10 Native........ Was there only one of these that somehow changed hands to each of us, one after the other? :D To the point- I used mine very lightly and found it to be unremarkable in performance compared to my VG10 Natives. No worse. No better. May...

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

demoncase, while we are on that topic, what do you think of this idea? Some have speculated about the possibility that human and even animal consciousness can somehow be "imprinted" on space itself, because we know space is not empty, it is a thing, with properties. If that were possible, because s...

Re: Time Travel Revisited: What kind of effects?

Time is not a thing you can independently manipulate without doing some major manipulation to space. Hence why black holes are considered to result in a slowing of time due to their massive gravity well. Nor is it a thing you can "pick up a lump of and shape"- it's a component of the material univer...

Why aren't more people into knives?

What would happen if people had real-life light sabers that really cut/burned through materials like that, and the basic hardware could be miniaturized at all levels, from microscopic to large-sized?
Your local comic book store would now become the most dangerous joint in town.
