Made another LOTR map, this time I did my personal favorite country, Rohan!
The writing says, “Where now are the horse and rider? Where is the horn that was blowing? Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing? Where is the harp on the harp string, and the red fire glowing?  Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing? They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow; The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow. Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,  Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?” (J.R.R Tolkien)

    Almost 21 years old and I already hate the fuck out of teenagers.

    I’ve hated them since I was a teenager.

    Seriously?  They arrested a girl for a very very very very very bad joke and people got angry.  That’s normal.  These kids are just trying to show how ridiculous the arrest was/piss off the people who did it/ show solidarity.  Yes, the joke was racist and bad.  No, it was not worth an arrest.  And people realized that and got mad.

    It’s not because the joke was racist, it’s because YOU DON’T JOKE ABOUT BOMBS ON AIRPLANES.

    IT’S NOT FUNNY.  IT’S NOT WITTY.  IT’S NOT CUTE.

    Airlines can’t take shit like that lightly, especially because, I don’t know, planes have been blown up or used in terrorist activities how many times now?

    I doesn’t help that i actually have a flight on AA the day before the “twitter threat”

    From the “Folium” series ~ artist Fay Helfer; pyrography (woodburning) on poplar, natural colors from tumeric, beets, coffee, indigo, & cocchineal, plus accents of gold leaf.

    Helfer has raised pyrography to an entirely new level - her site is definitely worth checking out :: The Art of Fay Helfer

    Handmade Swords - Vendelmiekka

    • Maker & Copyright: Jarkko Niskanen (jarkko1)
    • Measurements: overall length of 90,5 cm; blade length 75,2 cm; weight 1358 g
    • Balance point: located 14 cm from the hilt

    Even though swords like this are often called "vendel swords" named so after the vendel graves in Sweden, they were common in large areas of Europe. Many such swords are also found in Finland. In Behmer’s classification of migration period swords this one represents type 6.

    The blade of the sword is pattern welded like it was common in migration period/early Viking age. The middle of the blade haves two pattern welded and twisted rods. Edges are layered from steels, with carbon content 0,6-0,8%. Crossguard and upperguard are riveted from brassplates, with blued iron plates between them. Iron is blued by heating it.

    The tang of the blade is peened into the upperguard. The pommel, which covers the peening, is cast from brass. The grip and strap slide are made from walnut while the scabbard is made of pinewood with leather covering and woolen inside.
