You look like a person with a job, instead of a physics grad student. I can't tell if that's an improvement or not.


Someone else said the same thing (well, the job part, not the physics part), saying *now* I look like a teacher.

Funny thing is, I got it cut the week after I finished said job, and will probably be mostly unemployed for the next couple months.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

SpitValve: I've heard about the two finger "backwards peace sign" thing and that it had something to do with a king ordering all archers have their two string-drawing fingers cut off (something about assassins maybe?) and that showing those two fingers were like a "fuck you, you didn't get me" thing. Any idea if that's true? Oh, and if anyone else knows the answer to that, feel free to let me know. It's not like I'm testing SpitValve or anything.

I don't know if there's any truth to it either way, but I've heard this exact explanation in regard to the middle finger; namely that when the British would capture enemy archers in the era of longbowmen, they would cut off their middle finger so they couldn't fire their bows.

The French would cut off the first two fingers of English prisoners to prevent them from firing bows. The English, once they learned of this, started flashing those two fingers as a combination of "I can still fire a bow at you" and "come and get them."

You forgot the part where they yelled "We can still pluck yew! PLUCK YEW!"

... snopes'd above. If you're too lazy to click, the idea is.. this is wacky because you're not going to mutilate people then return them home, you're just going to kill them. Only ones not worth killing are Knights, because you can ransom their armor back to them.

I liked it better than what I was using.
