    Yep. I've made something like 300 posts in 4 days as a result. My goal is to see MT hit 1,000 posts a day again by the end of 2010.

    I have that sword. Used it to cut snow blocks a couple winters ago when we got snowed in. (Yeah, I shoveled my driveway with a sword.....)

    I have that sword too. I bought it for 12 dollars at BudK and used it to kill a snake in my backyard last summer.
