Just under twenty minutes, but fascinating and worth a watch:

Watching Leonard gasp for breath during that interview, and hearing him confess he finally gave up smoking, I'm willing to bet his death was mainly due to lung cancer, or some other smoking-related illness. :cry: Someone - I think his son - said he had fractured veterbrae in his spine, and was in a great deal of pain. I'm wondering if that was due to mets from lung cancer.

My current beau, like, sadly, most nerdy white dudes, has less than zero dancing ability so, um, this might take a while. :D :D

From what you have said, I bet he would be willing to try to learn for you.

Awesome! The Tolkien quote made me tear up a bit...

That's pretty spectacular!

The movie version of the reforging has always been my pet peeve. You can't just supeglue a sword back together! These guys reforge it entirely. You can see the pretty swirls from folding the "shards" together.

It was pretty impressive. :) I've made a knife on a charcoal forge before, and it's not easy. Some of the antique gadgets they show are pretty cool, too. :)

Also, I had no idea the pommel was a separate piece from the blade. :scratch:
