Hi Nigel! Glad to hear from you. The things seem to keep rolling here. Q.G. has done a lot of fine work formatting older works as neato foldable flyers. Roger met a native American spirit and many Ann Franks. There's been much hubbub and the big Brexit of course.

For myself I've been well and getting re-connected with my hometown fam and friends. Left the hospital and about to get all litigious with the small retirement fund I cashed out. Tomorrow I see a lawyer from here in east Wisconsin, an old wolf with an interest in seeing a large slice. If all goes well I've found my school funding!

PROTIP: Never stab your most informative and literate employee in the back if it's not going to kill them. They might have read the law. I literally gave them 4 years of verbal warning about most of what I'm about to bring a case for. The rest is pics odf stuff from their "operation" that would make a billygoat puke and a theft of intellectual property for some extracurricular work I did a few years back assembling an Operations Procedure and Safety (OPS) team where I recorded the meetings and produced a constitution and minutes from them on my own time.
This under the false pretense that they were a nonprofit hospital. Nope. They just never informed the underlings when they changed a few years ago. Management lied straight to my face. That was a foolish thing to do.

The union's going to pitch several fits on the side too...
I hope to strike in early October as the executive folks go on vacation and everyone and their mama is spending their "flex accounts" before year end.
If they go to court and this goes public the can kiss their top 100 status goodbye.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

So, medieval feasting in central London.

Pros: the singer who looked like Henry the VIII was chill.  The swordsmen and acrobats were also good, and the service was excellent.

Cons: the beer was watered down, I didn't see any mead and the food, though certainly traditional, was somewhat lacklustre.  Also I may be blacklisted after stealing the Crown.

They had a place like that in Chicago.  Medieval Knights, it is called, and the food was vile.  The guys bashing each other off of horses were pretty good, but every time the waitstaff talked to us in faux-archaic English, I had to remind myself that they didn't have a choice and that they weren't really to blame and I shouldn't punch them or anything.

Sounds like a Renaissance Festival. Is this a place that's open all year-round? Or is it seasonal like a Renaissance Festival? Or is it a Renaissance Festival? (Questions to both of you)

Medieval Times, more than likely.  England has no fucking excuse to fuck up the Middle Ages, they were actually there. Well, after they were conquered by the fucking Normans.

That's the one.  There is also one in Phoenix.  when I was up there with the science gestapo, I swore at it every morning on the way past.

No, I'd have to draw the line at silly talking myself.  This place didn't do that, thankfully, or else I would have had to disarm a knight and take hostages.

Medieval place here, open all year round.  It is actually located in a dungeon in the older parts of London, so it does have that going for it.

Medieval Times, more than likely.  England has no fucking excuse to fuck up the Middle Ages, they were actually there. Well, after they were conquered by the fucking Normans.

Well, watered down beer, soup and chicken with herbs does have a certain medieval quality to it.  Just the quality of life I suspect peasants were subjected to.  And, to be fair, the beer (and the wine) was all you can drink.  And the entertainment was good, that I can't deny.  Henry VIII could hold a tune, and the juggler was pretty legit, and the tavern wenches put up with a reasonable amount of us being dicks (it was a stag do, but we weren't hitting on the wenches.  We're not that crass.  Instead, we were making our friend who was getting married get up and take part in all the inbetween meals entertainment...he can't dance for shit, incidentally...and then stole the crown).

Well, yeah, America's Renaissance Festivals involve mostly things from Middle Ages too, I believe.

Remember: This is America, we don't give a fuck.

Renaissance? Medieval? We just wanted swords, big tits in corsets, and shitty mutton. Call it somethin you silly-talkin' Europans say, and we won't question it. Gimme a place to sit my dipspit cup and a plastic sword for ma boy, Gunner, and maybe we can share my cousin later.

And actually, now that the nerds have taken over the Renaissance Festival, it mostly amounts to DnD merchandise and Samurai outfits. And mutton.

WHAT THE FUCKING OW MY FUCKING EARS.

When you go in, do they offer to pay for the medical bills accrued from the ear surgery required after opening their intro link?

And what's with the dragon rubbing off next to the Site Title? And is that an Eiffel Tower in the P in Pizza?

AND THEIR LICENSE PAGE IS A NOT FOUND ERROR.  :lulz:

They have a sandwich called "The Crusader", which is, if course, chok-full of pork products. Their mascot is a knight in armor with a cross on his shield.

Also, they're one of the sponsors of the local Islamophobic newspaper. So I guess at least one thing about them is "Authentic". No word yet on the presence of plague rats...

And this is where I mention there are contemporary reports of Knights Templar in Jerusalem defending Muslim pilgrims from more zealous Christians from Europe who tried to harass them.

Oh. Forgive my ignorance.

In school I was taught that the Crusades were essentially Christians massacring those of other faiths, including Islam. Or, at least that was what stuck with me from the teachings. I guess I was referring to old knights of the crusades in the original post?

Not strictly true. The Crusades also had a whole bunch of Christians massacaring christian towns for plunder and giggles. Have a look at "The peoples crusade" that preceeded the main event and laugh at one of the first fullblown  shitshows of history. Peter the Hermit was a clown of the first order.


Also, A wild Nigel! Good to have confirmation of continued existence. Please resume your normal schedule of dicks to asses in your own time.

This is where I start to photoshop a picture of Baphomet and the Eye of Providence saying to each other "You got Islamofascism in my Illuminati!!" ... "You got Illuminati in my Islamofascism!!".

But then I decide it's too much trouble, and I'm probably getting the joke wrong anyway.
