If this was a case of bad English, I'd be grateful if someone were to point out how to better formulate the sentence I wanted.

If, on the other hand its merely a case of being silly (considering the thread we're in, it's hard to tell):
I think you need the " " here.

You can usually consider me being silly, as you said...

Still, I like to see girls of that... caliber.

(Before you ask, back quivers are impractical, especially when you're standing in a row with other people. And often they're too loud when actually hunting with them, too. Your prey would hear the arrows scraping along the material, you see.).

Don't worry, if he misbehaves, I can still jam one of said arrows into his stomach...or lower.

Nah, only guns are "cool". More antiquated weapons, crossbows, swords such as rapiers and other knives aside, are just annoyingly uncool. If it's not mechanical and doesn't use chemical combustion, I say, it's not a *real* weapon.

And I'm not an AI, I'm just a cynical bystander. There's a difference, you see.

After quoting what Squinky had said earlier, Giligan responded characteristically: "Wow, is that really something an uptight square would say? Anyway, don't mind if I do."

Without givin anyone time to respond, he continued to another subject: "Nah, only guns are 'cool'" he explained to Jazhara, "More antiquated weapons, crossbows, swords such as rapiers and other knives aside, are just annoyingly uncool. If it's not mechanical and doesn't use chemical combustion, I say, it's not a *real* weapon."

After all this explaining, he was perturbed at any incorrect thoughts, conspiracies, that might follow from an earlier comment and needed to declare that he indeed was not an "AI" as he put it, but a "cynical bystander". However, the concern in the voice did not sound natural. There was just something odd with the resonance.

Well, you might think they're weak, but they pack quite a punch. They can actually pierce through plate armor, a complete pig, and bone. And don't get me started on how strong a crossbow is!


Though I agree, explosions are fun.

But if I have to choose a gun, I'd take a coilgun or gauss gun any time.


Oh, and a rapier is not a knife. A Knife has only one sharpened blade. You're thinking along the lines of "Sword" or if it's shorter it's usually a "Dagger". I bet you don't even know how to fence (At least *I* know the basics.)

Not speaking from experience, silly. It's in the Traditional Bowyer's Bible (Book III), in the section on the different types of quiver. Some wrote about how they hunted with their traditional bows.

But seriously, if I ever were to go hunting, I'd use a bow too. I feel it is not fair game, and not respectful to the animals if you use a gun. It should require skill to hunt. Also, I'd not just go hunting for sport and trophies. I'd only go hunting if I needed it to survive.

While I know that handling a gun requires some practice, it is still easier than handling an arrow (one of the mistakes that every archer should make at least once is to hold the arm they are holding the bow with incorrectly. Because when they've held it incorrectly once, they'll pay attention to never do it again, because having the string whip along the inside of your lower arm is something very, very painful. That's why I think instructors should not point it out to them too directly. If they haven't felt that, they won't realise how important the right position is, and get sloppy.).

"Plate armor"? A corset, perhaps, but nothing heavier.

Pfft. Rail guns are technological crap. Give me a brass cartridge any day of the week.

And a knife can totally have two sharpened edges. And I admit that I don't know how to fence, but isn't it basically just stab, slash, deflect?

So you're saying that Giligan is several people?

Maybe both Giligan and myself are the same several people.
