Have you ever actually held, or even attempted to swing a longsword?
I read it in a webcomic, surely it must be true?

Can we get back to Hand to hand combat. I think it can and does kill. It's not as hard as you may think, no I haven't killed anyone but I still know what 'm talking about. (Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Kung Fu and good old bare knuckles, forehead, elbows and knees.)
