High Quality Person
- Nov 29, 2006
A&W is great, but DQ is really hit or miss. A well managed one is tasty, a badly managed one means every surface is sticky and you have the suspicion there is a lot going on in the kitchen that gives the health inspector the shivers.American haters of A&W and Dairy Queen should try the Canadian versions.
Had a small SCA event this weekend where there was a fencing competition. A lot of the really good fencers were at a ceremony for someone getting an award, so the overall skill level was much more balanced.
I'm the one in the blue jacket, fighting with sword and dagger, against my opponent who was using sword and shield. She's better than me in skill, but for some reason always insists on fighting with sword and shield or dual swords and she always gets caught on herself and spends more time trying to keep track of where each hand and item is rather than the opponent.
You can see in the picture her sword tip and shield are protecting the same side of her body, and her sword tip is pointed nowhere near my body. I'm under very little threat if I just drop my sword tip under the shield and get her in the abdomen.
(My dagger is also completely out of position doing absolutely nothing, and should have been down low forming a 'wall'. This is to stop her her sword tip from pointing at my body because I misjudged the angle/too slow in the initial thrust and I impale myself.)
