    Oh my God, it's morning! Anyone have any idea where I disappeared to last night? I never used to have missing memories but as I get older I find the old noggin not keeping up with the night's activities.
    Good God man! Why are you slapping a monkey.

    No, seriously Omegalith, what the fuck was that?! It looked like a skinny Jay Leno fighting an army of Storm Shadows by doing forward flips and terrible martial arts fast-forwarded.

    Then skinny Jay Leno fights their 'boss' with fast-forwarded terrible martial arts, including blocking four arrows with a sword which the arrows get stuck in, in a row... Oh, and don't get me started on the 'archery', which was the same clip of the 'archer' pretending to fire an arrow quite obviously repeated several times to make it look like he fired more than one.

    As for the ending...

    spoilers:
    'Boss' uses the force to send a rock at skinny Jay Leno, who punches it back, where it strikes 'Boss' and EXPLODES! Then 'Boss' transforms into an obvious burning dummy on a string with a sword, whom skinny Jay Leno knocks down with a staff... Only for Wicker Man to rise up and get knocked down again, followed by Burning Man to rise AGAIN, gets knocked down, rises, gets knocked down, and so on until skinny Jay finally breaks the string, defeating the villain.
    end of spoilers

    I know it's a Turkish movie, considering it ended with 'son', so... WHAT THE HELL TURKEY?!
    Apparently I need to track down some Turkish Martial Arts films, that's what it means.

    ...I think I will enjoy this trailer no matter how many years will pass.



    ...Course, this reminds me of how much the US release of Red Cliff has cut down a lot of the scenes.

    Hell, they cut out the part where Guan Yu jumps on top of shield carrying men and then proceeds to use it as a high ground to take out horsemen!

    So: Dwarves.

    The stereotypical Dwarven Settlement has the following traits:

    1: Completely underground.
    2: Entrance halfway up a mountain.
    3: Isolationist, hidden and mistrustful of other races.
    4: The majority of the adult workforce are miners or smiths, presumably with a number of bartenders, restaurant owners, bakers, shopkeepers, educators and politicians/paperwork shufflers.
    5: Almost everyone is a trained and well equipped combatant.

    So: How the hell is that sustainable?

    If they had some farmers on a plateau outside the main entrance and a number of steady trade caravans moving up and down an accessible road to ship out their wares to swap for food and luxuries it'd make sense, but those details are generally omitted.

    Even then, they'd have to do a lot of food stocking up for the harsh mountain winter that'd cut off trade links with the races they'd have to actually be on good terms with.

    They are just that damn good.
    Yeah I give up. They would need like a bajillion UNs to take it out. And they would all have to work.

    There you go.
    Farmers are lower class than all other members of dwarven society and so are kept out of sight.

    Speaking of which, I looked at a box of matches in my house today and saw it said:

    Scottish Bluebell: Made in Sweden.



    Ghost, if you're going to sell counterfeit Scottish matches to capitalize on our awesomeness, you should probably be more subtle than announcing your fakery on the box in large letters just under the brand name.

    Though it is flattering to know that anything with Scotland in the name must clearly be selling better.
