    In news that shouldn't surprise anybody who's ever found a turd in a Ziploc in the back of their closet before, a 700-year old latrine unearthed in Odense, Denmark, still smells awful. What, did somebody expect it to smell like a Glade Scented Plug-In? Described as being in... / Continue →

    Cats: like me, they love doing battle. There's nothing more exhilarating in a cat's life than tearing something else with a heartbeat to pieces. This is the cat battle armor made and sold by Etsy shop schnabuble (previously: this cat battle armor). It costs $500, which is wh... / Continue →

    This is a series of Monty Python And The Holy Grail LEGO sets made by Flickr user Rifiröfi. If they were real I would buy them all. But they're not real, so instead I'm going to talk about how I'm going to make them myself, then never actually get around to doing it. It's th... / Continue →

    This is the demonic faced armor helmet crafted by DarkHeart Armoury. I would not hesitate to wear that into battle. Or the bedroom. Hisssssssss, call me The Demon Layer, Bringer of Carnal Pleasure! Baby? Where are you going? Wait -- I'll take the helmet off! *door slams*... / Continue →

    This is a Knights of the Round Table themed timepiece designed by luxury watchmaker Roger Dubuis. As you can see, it features all the knights gathered around the table with their swords drawn ready to yell 'ONE, TWO, THREE -- FAIR MAIDEN TITS!' or whatever the hell their team ... / Continue →

    Scientists recently unearthed two 16th century vampire skeletons in Bulgaria that were buried with iron stakes through their hearts. Why the medieval vampire hunters didn't use garlic marinaded steaks is beyond me, but I suspect it's because I'm dumb and have the brain of a di... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for the Washington Lottery that asks, "What have you and your friends always wanted to do?" SPOILER: Apparently joust on Segways. F*** I really need to make some new friends. Or any friends for that matter. I had an imaginary one for awhile but he liked... / Continue →

    This is a stop motion video featuring a LEGO lumberjack (who looks suspiciously like Gimli) that gets struck by lightning and is granted the power of heavy metal. Which, I'm going to be honest -- I didn't even know was a power. Being able to see through women's shirts, sure, ... / Continue →

    Note: Very worthwhile video of the whole incident after the jump. This is an animated gif of a woman on The Amazing Race trying to shoot a watermelon out of a medieval slingshot at a renaissance fair and melonballing herself in the face instead. She managed to survive with no... / Continue →

    Apparently there's a new Sims game coming out that's entirely based in medieval times. That's pretty much all the information I have right now except I'm gonna be a powerful wizard with a dragon mount that I can and will use to torch your whole f***ing castle and kidnap the pr... / Continue →

    NOTE: 9-minute video of the thing hacking through raw meat, ice blocks, wood and other shit is after the jump. It's worth watching, but I recommend skipping around. Or prancing -- I won't judge! This is a commercial for Cold Steel's Two Handed Great Sword. It costs $550 an... / Continue →

    Knight Neversmiles of the Round Beerpong Table here went and made himself a coat of chain mail armor out of pull-tabs from beer cans. Although there may have been some pop-tops in there too, that wouldn't surprise me. Anyway, he did a good job but there's just no way you can ... / Continue →

    This is the Hoernersburg Castle, a LEGO castle constructed by NoName Hoerner because castles are awesome and he must have known I want to live in one. You can see a hi-res cross section of the castle HERE but it's really worth going to the website to see it in all its detail a... / Continue →

    This is a full set of leather armor created by DeviantARTist Azmal. As you can see, it is bad to the ass and I would be proud to rock it into battle any day (except Saturdays, I drink beer on Saturdays). En garde! RAAAAAWR! Made entirely from leather and nickel finished har... / Continue →

    From the same maker as last week's chain mail chess set comes this awesome Mega Man 2 chain mail blanket/wall hanging. I know this little picture doesn't do it justice so click HERE to see a higher res version. Then, click HERE to discover life's greatest secrets. Oh, sorry,... / Continue →

    This is a chess set made out of chain mail. It is impervious to arrows and sword attacks. Which is good because a lot of times I like to threaten my opponents with weapons while we're playing. You know, to keep them on their toes (beat me and you're dead). You ever been mac... / Continue →
