How about that: for the last strip, I made a comment referring to baseball, and now something like baseball happened in today's strip. I have the GIFT!
Erin decreed that they won't be any more killing people, so not-Cloud left his stupidly oversized sword at their base and brought a stupidly oversized cricket bat instead.Pallindromemordnillap said:So what you're saying is that this is his stealth sword, and that he left his fancy pierced one because it was too flashy for undercover stuff?
Yup, he got his 'normal' sword out, so as to not stand out.Pallindromemordnillap said:So what you're saying is that this is his stealth sword, and that he left his fancy pierced one because it was too flashy for undercover stuff?KarmaTheAlligator said:Holy crap you said the exact thing I wanted to say! Exact same wording, too...hittite said:Ok but seriously, what happened to the sword's nose ring?
Turns out, he has several swords, only one seems to have the rings, and he's not using this one for the infiltration plan (the rings aren't in any strips since they got to the building). I went back to when they were in the hideout after fleeing to check (strip #114).
I would say that'a s a home run, wouldn't you? Also, I am mostly cuirious how a bat, a knife, or a bow of graphene would look...vallorn said:Size matters less than density, if that sword were made of carbon fiber it would be light enough to lift with one hand easily, magnesium alloy is not much more dense than that and is still stupidly light.RJ 17 said:Huh...I wouldn't have thought a sword that big could move fast enough to pull off Genji's deflect against bullets. :3
Any Physics, Size != Mass. Density acutally matters. If this were carbon steel the guy would need stupid arms and shoulder muscles to swing it, but if it were a low density material like I mentioned bove he could swing it about like a toohpick. Not to mention exotic materials like Aerogel.Imperioratorex Caprae said:
More like a cricket bat. The blocking of a VERY hard ball with the flat side of the bat seems a lot more like this than shielding.Grumpy Ginger said:
P.S. For Americans reading this, Cricket is to Baseball what Rugby is to American Football, a gentleman's game without all the cowardly need for padding and an actual international following as a sport instead of just American teams competing to see who can get a brain disorder the fastest.
All three of which would be terrible materials to make a sword out of. Carbon fiber maybe, but good luck getting it to hold an edge.vallorn said:Size matters less than density, if that sword were made of carbon fiber it would be light enough to lift with one hand easily, magnesium alloy is not much more dense than that and is still stupidly light.
