The D&D players may find this amusing. I don't think much of the music, but it's entertaining.

Zweihander in use

[livejournal.com profile] zornhau posted this video clip of a zweihander sword made by some company called Cold Steel being used by the company owner on all sorts of things - carcasses, horse-heads, boots, bamboo, rope, water barrels, and masonry blocks. Based on this clip, that sword must be bloody incredible: strong, and very, very sharp. As [livejournal.com profile] zornhau says, though, the guys wielding it are somewhat amateurish. It's also a little weird that it's being pitched as a home-defence weapon.

For those of us who still think that "they don't make cars like they used to", watch this video clip. It's a crash test video of a 1959 Chevy Bel Air hitting a 2009 Chev Malibu, and it's rather eye-opening. Car safety has come a long way.

Quackery

I wandered past the Gem and Mineral Fair at Cresta last week, and it was interesting, as always, to see all the different types of gems, semi-precious stones and minerals on show. Something that disturbed me was that almost every exhibitor had books or pamphlets or displays taking about the different magical properties of the various gems or crystals. Now, surely there are enough amazing things about these minerals without having all this absolute rubbish? Can't we be impressed about how good crystals look, and how they were formed, without having to see a book by some quack rambling on about how agate is good for the blood or whatever?

On the topic of quackery, while I was sick at home today, I was listening to prank calls made by Whackhead Simpson. For those who don't know, Darren "Whackhead" Simpson is the 94.7 Highveld Stereo radio station's resident prankster. He phones up random people, celebrities, or whomever, and plays pranks on them. (If you want to hear some of his stuff, do a search for "Whackhead" on YouTube - many of his better ones are there).

Anyway, here's one where he phones up a psychic/fortune-teller. Apart from the sheer pleasure of doing this to one of these people, it demonstrates, I think, how these scam-artists are either seriously deluded about their psychic abilities, or are greedy vampires preying on the credulity of other people.

And on the topic of gullible people, Whackhead here phones up not only a 419 scammer, but also one of the scammer's victims.
