Bill Rinaldi just sent me this video from the weapon-making series Man At Arms. At viewers’ request, Tony Swatton forges Sokka’s “space sword” OUT OF METEORITES! The results are incredible.

Mind blown. So… how do I buy this thing? Maybe a custom pleather version?

Mughal Sword by Bill Blake of Alae Swords / Sword-Site.Com

Hilt by Satyanarayan Sikligar

Blade by Medieval Fightclub w/ reworking by Bill

Hi All!

So I’ve been working on a sword with a hilt by my friend Satyanarayan Sikligar and man am I happy with the way this sword is turning out. It feels like death incarnate in hand, no guard, no pommel just a blade and a handle. This sword is based on certain types of Mughal swords and mughal styles of hilting swords - for examples see the Indian and Islamic swords section of Sword-Site.

Everyone I show this thing to say “NICE!”, and it makes me smile just looking at it so I think I’m on a winner.

The blade is a reworked scimitar blade from our pals at www.medieval-fightclub.com.au - the fuller had a little bit of a wobble in it from the forge which I worked on with files and emery paper and corrected as best I could, but ultimately a little assymetry remains which has added character to the sword tremendously. The blade is forge, as evidenced by a little fold I noticed on the blade about three inches from the hilt, and the steel and temper are excellent - the sword is stiff as a board and hard as old nails.

I cold fitted the grip so that before it was even epoxied (and next up it is going to be glued again with construction adhesive) the grip fitted and locked in place with the blade - giving the sword overall a rock solid feel.

I’m really glad I emailed Satyanarayan and I’m thrilled with the results of the hilt and blade combo.

30 & 1/2 inches overall

978 grams / 2.1 lbs

If you want to get in contact with Satyanarayan email snsikligar@gmail.com or at eBay www.ebay.com.au/usr/bhawaniarts

how to fuck with hunters 101

you could totally get away with murder with these literally i mean if you got blood on the soles and made a trail people would probably just think it was an animal attack

Tumblr is officially full of psychopaths.

There is a fine line between psychopath and genius. People on Tumblr play jump-rope with this line.

That …was beautiful.

John Conway first theorized that it would be impossible to create a forever-expanding universe using these rules, which was proven wrong by a team at MIT, creating the “glider gun,” which is featured in the third gif. 

Since then, thanks to computers, people all over the world have added new designs to the database, creating amazingly complex designs.

For example Andrew J. Wade created a design which replicates itself every 34 million generations! Furthermore it is also a spaceship (permanently moving pattern) and not only that, it was also the first spaceship that did not travel purely diagonally or horizontally/vertically! These types of spaceships are now appropriately named Knightships.

The simulation has some interesting properties, for example it has a theoretical maximum speed information can travel. Or simply, light speed - as that is the limit in our own universe. The limit is set to 1 cell per generation - after all how can you create something further than 1 cell away in one generation if you can only effect your immediate neighbours? And yet you can get things like the ‘stargate’ (Love the name, huge SG fan here.) which allows a space ship to travel 11 cells in just 6 generations.

Some smart people have even designed calculators, prime number generators and other incredibly complex patterns.

You can create your own patterns here: http://www.bitstorm.org/gameoflife/
