Thompson stabbed the man once in the chest and another time in the leg. He says he sustained a gash in his forehead after the estranged husband smashed a flowerpot over his head.

Girlfriend calls estranged husband, tells him to come into the guy's house against the guy's wishes, after an argument?

Yeaaaah that would be time to end that relationship.

My Master Sword is still safely upon the mantle-place. It has not be used to stab anyone as far as I know.

This. Not saying the sword guy is a saint either, but that was dumb of her. If she felt like she was in danger she should have left (or called actual cops), not call for her ex to come over and start something.

See, I think it gets even better. In the click2houston article, it reads like it's the girlfriend's house and it was our hero trying to kick the guy out of a house he didn't even own.  And since he's an estranged husband rather than an ex-husband, it might actually be HIS house.

No argument about ending the relationship though. Goddesses.

All the more reason to call law enforcement to handle the problem then, that's just asking for a fight otherwise. And why would you be dating someone else if you didn't finalize a divorce? The whole lot of them have issues IMO.

It's a conspiracy.

Sell pot for 50 rupees. Secretly stash 10 rupees in pot. Let Link smash pot, take 10 rupees, and force owner to buy another pot.

Link had the cheapest throw ever in that game but I loved abusing it lol.

ha!

in Legend of Zelda, the main character's name is "Link".
 
2014-03-04 07:40:45 PM  
I didn't know Gannon could wield the master sword. See because the girlfriend was calling for help, and she was trapped in her house and somebody came to rescue her....okay I'm done, I'll see myself out.

Damn, I shoulda waited to submit this until HuffPo (featured partner) jacked the story.

My link to the original article went nowhere. Same pun in the headline too.

Good thing it wasn't Frostmourne or the victim would have been killed AND had his soul sucked out, and be condemned to walk around as a mindless minion of the Lich King.

Me and my old roommate played that game a lot too.  I remember him using Link for a while, but he moved on because if I played as Killik I'd smack him around like a red-headed stepchild.

/ maybe he just didn't know how to exploit Link, but he just didn't seem fast enough to get inside Kilik's defense/effective range.

Not necessarily. In Uther's death scene from Arthas: Rise of the Lich King, we find out that Frostmourne is a vicious weapon, and it does suck souls, but those souls who are strong enough can avoid becoming undead, though they are trapped in the blade. In WoW we found them in the Halls of Reflection, when we met Uther Lightbringer. They were all released when Tirion shattered Frostmourne on the Frozen Throne during the Lich King's fall. We also got to see Arthas' father, the slain King Menethil. He actually rezes the raid in the Lich King fight.

Either way, that story lacked enough stabbing.  All three should've required stitches.
