Hi everyone!

therebeltrouser:

I’m in the pub, very drunk! I am going to like lots of photos of sparks now! You will all unfollow me out of sympathetic embarrassment!

I would never unfollow you.  Even if you destroyed a new recycling center with a backhoe.

A tsuba is a sword guard that forms the boundary between the blade and the grip. Its chief functions are to balance the sword, prevent the hand from reaching the blade and to protect the hand from an adversary’s cuts. Apart from the aperture for the blade there was often an opening in the Tsuba for a small knife – a kodzuka – and sometimes another hole for the kogai a Samurai would use to dress his hair. Early designs were simple and emphasis was primarily on function, but during the Edo period (1603–1868) there was a demand for luxury objects and the tsuba became increasingly more of an artistic embellishment and status symbol whose chief purpose was to communicate its owner’s social status.

I imagine Ron and Russell Mael’s childhood diet being something like the buffet from Fargo.
