Discussing a variation for a more "historical" use of pilum in C&C I quoted an academic paper to show how the "fix" was based on unhistorical assumptions.

I did it knowing full well what I have done.

And I am posting this not only because I am so ashamed at how far I've sunken and how pathetic and unnecessary that was, and because I feel I deserve the utmost ridicule, but also because I want at least one person to think I am cool for doing it.

Make the scary finals go away

Hey -- when you know stuff you know it. And if you have to quite official things to prove it, then why not? We throw around knowledge from papers, etc, all the time without even thinking about it. :shrugs: So I am not certain I see what the big deal is.

I guess my two big shames were:

1. I had the paper sitting right next to me.

2. I should be studying but I'm far more interested in the Roman Manipular system

3. I'm just bored and want somebody to talk to
