NOT sword fightin, but the acrobatics and fluid motion of martial arts with an added extension of yourself.
Dark flame is 5.5' long pommel to widows peak. 2" wide weighs 8lbs and is solid Titanium. Yes its a part of my arm-either arm. Amd yes it is fluid but it takes a level of discipline amd dedication few have. Dark flame can and will shear through bone like butter. I decapitate dead deer every year one handed hide, bone, amd meat all w it. Never noticed it gettin dull. I have cut down 3" white oak saplings one handed as well w Her.

I would personally recommend 2 beta mags.

Using a sword in that situation would require strength and stamina as well as skill that 99.9% of people don't have.

Martial arts yes does teach you that but you have to be advanced to qualify. Fencing is NOT swords play.

Sunday evening, I ran out of filtered cigarette tubes to make my smokes with. I just made a conscious decision to not buy anymore.

It's hard. My son had asked me to pretty please go find a cigarette Monday afternoon. But now, 3 days into it, the irritability is fading, as are the urges. But I'm eating EVERY FREAKING THING I FIND. EVERYTHING!!!!. (period for extra emphasis). (and again).
I get embarrassed to! I think ill try the gum but even then its still the habit if smoking g out of boredom that gets me.

It's willpower man. You have to make the conscious decision to not have that cigarette. You have to say "my balls are THIS big, so **** you" and make that decision to not put that cigarette to your lips.
