Considering what Romans wore for armor, I doubt kilts would bother them much.

It took serious discipline and time to finally subjugate the Kelts

Screaming smurfs with axes that have other smurfs with bagpipes playing as harshly as possible in the background to sound like harpies or something leaping out from behind every tree.

The comments somehow show the absurdity of the claim.

*note 3: Celts had metal chainmail armour. Though armor -- and swords -- were not in as widespread use as in the Mediterranean world because technologically accessible iron resources were just rarer and thus more expensive. Ergo, it's a noble's weapon. The poor had to do with leather and spears and (inferior) bows. The crazy drugged up ones are the ones that went to fight naked. You have to be pretty drugged up to go naked in a Northern European winter.

*note 4: women warrior traditions didn't really exist among the Celts, Germanics, or any other people around those parts except for the steppe peoples. That doesn't mean they didn't fight tooth, nail, claw, and Maenad if there's a Roman army at the gates threatening to rape and kill everyone. Going back to TRL's post after mine, while he's quite justified to believe that Jeanne d'Arc or Eleanor d'Aquitaine were rarer than the rarest legendary Pokemon, it's entirely possible that a Medieval town under siege by a rapacious army, and every goddamned Medieval army is a collection of the world's worst rapists and pillagers, women would pick up and fight if it comes down to an assault. But of course, the sexist Christian tradition did much to render women's role in society impotent, even if peasant realities encouraged the opposite.

Women of many steppe tribes throughout history were actually quite good at the fighting thing for the most part. They had to ride and hunt just like the men. Their societies being geared for raids and tribal skirmishes, women made excellent second line, "home guard" warriors.

Adult fans of "My Little Ponies"

"On the first Sunday of each month, inside the Red Room at Ballard's Card
Kingdom, grown men (and one woman) meet to talk ponies. My Little Ponies, to
be exact.

The Seattle group is part of a growing international movement that intensely
follows the revived TV show from the 80's "My Little Pony." The new cartoon, slick
with modern animation and story lines, currently airs on the Hub Network.

Men who love the show and the ponies are affectionately called "Bronies." It's a
trend that's even been written about in the Wall Street Journal."

Oh noes, there's been a tsunami so big that the waves could be seen in Birmingham, Alabama (hundreds of miles inland)!

Okay, so it's just strange weather conditions producing some rather spooky-looking clouds.

I've seen lenticular clouds (those funny smooth clouds that appear over mountaintops; they look like giant flying saucers), but never any of these. So OBVIOUSLY they must really be chemtrails. :P

Will you boycott Chiquita bananas over its oilsands stance?
http://www.cbc.ca/news/yourcommunity...ds-stance.html
I would say than both sides are rather stupid on this one: ethical oil do not exist and the oilsand side is at best childish.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

^ I don't know if you really know how what you said could be creepie. You know than sometime in some areas , for saving the family's honor, young rape's victim are maried to their agressor. I can't say for sure if it's better than the other usual ''end'' ( victims killed by her own family) to such situation

Either route is, of course, treating the human being involved like a piece of meat -- the people who sign up for this wouldn't know "honor" if it hit them like a crowbar and I figure there should be a special place in their hell for their type of hubris.

It’s Not a UFO, Just a Killer Drone for an Aircraft Carrier

"Note to the Navy: When trucking a giant flying robot with a rounded fuselage
across the country, people are going to think they’re looking at an artifact from
Area 51.

As the local news coverage above shows, residents of Cowley County, Kansas,
were freaked out to see a truck rumbling down U.S. 77 towing what looks a
whole lot like a 32-foot spaceship. “People were calling in saying, ‘Oh they think
they found a flying saucer,’” Donetta Godsey of the Winfield Daily Courier told the
ABC News affiliate.

Alas, the cargo wasn’t anything otherworldly. Just a trussed-up, wingless version
of the Navy’s futuristic killer drone, the X-47B, which the Navy hopes will one day
be the world’s first robot capable of landing on an aircraft carrier."
