ISO15693: Mama
I just stoned a man
Flung a rock against his head
knocked him down and now he's dead


God said to Abraham, kill me a son - out on Highway 51

Agent Smiths Laugh: See the best policy is to make rocks real expensive...

Oh...maybe that's why nobody shoots each other with diamonds... 

/me and a friend have a long standing assertion that all mankind has ever really done is kill each other with progressively more impressive rocks


Heathen! It was sticks, not rocks, what made mankind advance!.

/Repent of your rocky ways, and embrace the Church of the Stick!

CygnusDarius: It's all sticks to me.

How did the art of weaponry started? It started with our ancestors holding a giant stick. Then, someone had the idea to add a rock to that giant stick, someone else decided to sharpen that rock in the stick, but it was a stick still the same, and then someone decided to make a longer stick with a pointy end. A few years later, a stick with a string was invented to throw little pointed sticks, and then someone made a sharp stick with metal, and all of a sudden, we foguth against each other with metal pointy, sharpened sticks.

Several years later, someone had the bright idea to make a hollow metal stick, and with black powder, use it to throw even tinier sticks made of lead. Now we have self-propelled sticks that can destroy cities.

So, Hail The Stick!


Thanks for the laugh dude, this was some good shiat..

With sticks and stones and conchoidal cones, that's what weapons are made of.

Nope. Then it would be a job. Plus, I've got to make up enough for next hunting season, and I'm not *THAT* good at it yet. I didn't show all my failures.

If you want some points, you can buy good ones from 3Rivers Archery.

No worries, I understand. I just thought maybe you'd trade a few points for a fossilized ivory halibut carving or some such.

Consider what that link implies: Somewhere, someone is making a living knapping stone projectile points, a skill we've used for at least 100,000 years.

You know another skill that we've used for 100,000 years? The reach-around. Seriously.
