    If a thread falls in trollshido and no one is there to troll it, does it still make a sound?

    If related part was irony, the opposite would be true, what would lead to a lack of reason for the rant.

    see below, his comment.
    Everyone knows that european swordblades were blunt by design and were more bashing clubs than cutting tools. Asian swords were sharp. Europeans apparently didn't knew how to use whetstones and files to make sharp blades.

    ... Of course it's pure bullshit.
    If you had read the next line, you'd see he was mocking that opinion.

    Er nannte es sofort Bullshit. Das war zu zeigen, dass er nicht glaube, diese Worte. Irony multipliziert mit Ihrer Antwort. Ich glaube, Sie sind sich einig, daß europäische Metallurgie nicht schlecht.

    ... Of course it's pure bullshit. Here one of the best links I found concerning sharpness of original blades: Edge Bevels and blade geometry of original swords.
    But unlike other myths I know where it comes from. Decades of mass produced wallhangers, [...]
    to the second part, from where you bold-marked it, I can agree with ease. I wouldn't even complain about it.
    clearly, the second part is the adjustment of the first part.
    it is kenning's heavy exaggerated presumptions I mock. Indeed I doubt one would find a majority of people that do believe medieval swords were crude or clubs etc.


    @ bobclumsyninja:
    thank you for the translation-effort. no need for that, but I appreciate it.

    I don't think most people have much of an opinion on ancient weaponry.

    and what they do, possibly largely comes from movies, which aren't good depictions, which I read to be his point.

    I absolute don't know for the US.

    As for Germany or even generally Europe I am under the impression that there is much cultural/historical knowledge beeing passed to population unintentionally.
    keep in mind, there is a ton of castles, ruins etc here, people visit with their children on weekends when visiting the zoo is getting boring.

    Most people here in the U.S. Don't really know **** about actual swords. Their knowledge instead comes from tv and those cheap ass wall hangers at the mall. I don't think most people have a problem with most of the general points he was making, but rather how over-zealous he was being about it. Hell my only real issue is the fact that he still doesn't see that he is in fact a LARPer. Lol
