Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

True Katana Stories OT

My wife use to work as a property manager for a company that owned a bunch of apartment buildings.
some doods broke into an apartment that she managed at 3am and the 2 residents had gotten home from the bars and were chilling and playing xbox or some ****. well the guys broke in and were beating on the residents and robbing them at gunpoint. well one of the residents grabbed a katana and chopped off 2 of the guys fingers(the guy with the gun). the robbers fled, the police matched up the fingers with the robber at the hospital and hauled his *** to jail(after he was treated).

true story. it happened about 2 years ago.

anyone else have a katana story?

Police shot and killed a sword-wielding man described by relatives as schizophrenic after he slashed and killed two former co-workers and wounded three other people at a supermarket where he used to bag groceries.

In Japan there are sword duels in the streets on a daily basis.

This is horrible, happened across the bridge in Superior, WI.

Quote:
Nov. 2--Twelve jurors found Jason Richard Borelli guilty of first-degree intentional homicide within 90 minutes after they began deliberating at noon today. "You are not to search for doubt," Douglas County Circuit Court Judge Michael Lucci told the jurors. "You are to search for the truth." Borelli, 32, Superior, faced the charge for the Jan. 7 stabbing death of Leah Gustafson in her apartment at 1910 John Ave. She was found dying in her apartment, a samurai sword believed by police to be the murder weapon beside her. A trail of evidence led officers across the street to Borelli's residence, 1901 John Ave.

by "dual" do you mean chop in half so as to make two of them?

Frat boys in their underwear breaking brooms. It's all part of some ****-erotic ritual no doubt.

I had an employee who was crazy into Swords, she had a whole room in her house dedicated to them. Here is a "letter opener" she gave me for Christmas. I tell you when I fired her and she came to get her final check I was a bit scared. Thank god I don't own a Post Office!
