I just dropped $2500 on a set of plate mail armor for martial arts practice, so for the forseeable future: I AM NOT ENTITLED TO JUDGE ANY OF ICJ'S PURCHASES.

Seriously though, it'll look awesome.

I hope you insured it. I've had plates mailed, and they got broken in transit. (Rim shot.)

Did you know they invented plate mail in China something like 5,000 years ago? And they made it out of paper! Overlapping pieces of paper soaked in squashed beetles, which is the basis for shellac. Stuff is about as soft as carbon fiber or fiberglass today, i.e. hard enough to deflect a spear, knife or sword point, or even an arrow through it.

Don't make jokes. Don't quote lyrics. That is not an order, it's a god damn request for the sake of humanity.

Can you make a food video where you sing song lyrics?

I would like to see a video in which TDarcos attempts to make plate mail out of paper and then someone stabs him while he makes crepes and sings.

Awesome idea!

It doesn't even have to be real paper armor or anything. My nephew made all of the Halo guns out of regular copy paper and tape. I bet Paul could make some wicked paper armor and fry up crepes or something. Just add in a singing voice-over and he's got GOLD, baby. GOLD!

I just wanted to say that if Robb dies and / or is involved in a motorcycle accident while riding on his half mile commute to work, I will:

1. Not send any sympathy / get well flowers while he is in the hospital, nor place any on his grave site or otherwise.

2. Hold it over his head in any and all contexts (even ones completely unrelated).

3. Sneer condescendingly at least once.

4. Advocate that no video games are dedicated to his memory.
