Seems like you're pushing it, the typical spear is two-handed weapon to begin with; but call it what you wish its a fictional weapon. The answer to the original question is still, there is no really well known/used equivalent (which is not to say crazy people aren't there to sell you similar looking stuff).

Headed, not handed.

Edit: I don't know why you insist that spears with two heads can't exist. A slightly longer search indicates that they were, in fact, used. And that they are called "Shuang Tou Qiang", which I guess is Chinese for "Double Headed Spear". (I know that calling a spade a spade is not mandatory, but.)

Another guess is that kung fu practitioners spin the damn things a lot, so some of them liked not to have to worry about which end was pointed toward the enemy when the opportunity to jab him with it came.

Most people will think of it as a sort of trident in that case. =P

Only if the heads are on the same end of the spear, which they aren't. Also, a trident kinda need three points. Etymologically speaking, you know...

could be better if they used double headed "scythes".


Talking about spears is making me hungry, question: what's the most used self-defense weapon? The knife? the gun?

I am not sure abt XBOX360. On PS3, you can plug in a USB and start playing the video and the PS3 supports some major codecs. You would have to chk what codecs does the XBOX60 support.

The first is an ear cuff. I don't know if those rings have a specific name, they look like a generic band kind of ring to me.

yeah, they're "ear cuffs"... I wear one that is a replica of the sort popular around the year 950AD worn in Viking culture.

The ring on the finger is just a ring.... rings can be sized for any finger or thumb (or toe)

Besides the standard one I find that sort of ring pretty common.

Here's one:

Why are almost all Anime women so darn attractive? It drives a hormonal teenage American off the wall.

They can't help it, they're just drawn that way.

well i got my first deleted post yesterday. These forums rules are as strict as site Im on right now if not stricter. But I did not get punished the right way

I mean moderator deleted it and counted my post as nonsense and said it is not a chat room here but can someone explain why he did not send me a warning or point reduction or something along those lines?

is it because I'm new? Will I get point reduction and more serious warnings later on for nonsense posts?

I wonder if this is a first: someone complaining about not getting "punished". Maybe the rules need updating

Seriously though, "punishment", as you put it, is at the staff's discretion. There is nothing to say we have to issue warnings or infractions, if we don't think they are necessary (they are often the most convenient method of getting our message across though). Incidentally, it doesn't matter how new (or old) you are here.

In the case you're citing, I would say, given you've dived straight into posting activly on the forum, it is a fair assumption that you'll notice when a post is removed and read the comment to find out why. As you did. That means the need for a warning by PM is less necessary. Nothing out of place in that...

Possibly, yes. Are you going to keep making nonsense posts?

...And as if to prove my point, that not everything is handled with warnings and infractions, I've moved this post to where it is less out of place, rather than deleting it and issuing a warning.

Consider a post deletion much less serious than a "warning" or "infraction" ... the latter lead more directly to temp-bans and perma-bans.

Its easy... read the forum rules, post as much on topic as possible, don't start a new thread when there's an existing thread for the topic. Necromancy (bringing old threads to life) is much less of an issue here if you're On Topic.

I've had my share of post deletions, warnings, and such... and most every time I deserved it

I needs some helps here...

I wants to find out how a vibration measurer (to calculate the impact of traffic loads on roads, or bridges, or buildings) works. Any information still be better than nothing, so pls help =]

I needs from the basic information (such as: what will go where if i have a unit and want to measure the vibration rate of the nearby bridge), to the actual mechanical detail ( "the vibration trigger X inside the unit, which then cause Y to start Z...")..... the wikipedia-ish type of information

Wasted some valuable time but keep hitting the wall, so i needs a push to get going =/

PS: The only things which i got so far is general information on Laser Doppler Vibrometer and Accelerometer (especiallt Piezotronic one). Both could be found in wikipedia or other encyclopedia through
