As many folks know, Terry Pratchett was knighted by the Queen a while back, due to his incredible awesomeness.

Sir Terry, understanding such things better than most people, knows that a proper knight needs a proper sword, appropriate to his line of knightly endeavors.

So he made his own sword, made in the old, traditional ways..... and he made it from meteorites.

"several pieces of meteorites — thunderbolt iron, you see — highly magical, you’ve got to chuck that stuff in whether you believe in it or not".

nullTerry Pratchett is awesome

I got to meet Sir Terry at a book signing once. He's even funnier in real life than his books and a really nice guy.

/me tries to imagine Lord Vetinari in eve. WTF just happened to my alliance?



Some Vetinari quotes for your amusement:


"I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are the good people and the bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, the bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides."

"...history changes all the time. It is constantly being re-examined and re-evaluated, otherwise how would we be able to keep historians occupied? We can't possibly allow people with their sort of minds to walk around with time on their hands."


"Putting up a statue to someone who tried to stop a war is not very, um, statuesque. Of course, if you had butchered five hundred of your own men out of arrogant carelessness, we'd be melting the bronze already."


"I have certainly noticed that groups of clever and intelligent people are capable of really stupid ideas."


Crime was always with us, he reasoned, and therefore, if you were going to have crime, it at least should be organized crime.
