No thoughts on this? Thought the SF crowd would be all over this.
Certainly, a wall full of Highlander and Lord of the Rings replicas would send one sort of message, but do a couple war swords also scream social leprosy?
Looking for some decorative advice here. I ended up with a couple japanese WWII swords and thought "cool" and put them up on the wall in my bedroom. I've got a new lady friend coming over in a few days and I'm starting to wonder if things like that send creepy vibes. I got them from my grandfather, who is a major collector. I've got a small apartment, so it was bedroom or living room. Cool or creepy?
Anyone here in any of the patriotic societies (the Cincinnati, Colonial Wars, SAR, etc)?
I am in the midst of preparing my application for the Colonial Wars. The dinners/balls are black tie/white tie optional. I am wondering what anyone's experiences have been.

Looking for some creative ideas.
I have my 5th great grandfather's cane. It has his name engraved on the handle, and his name is the same as mine. I get a kick out of using it every now and again. I am in my mid-twenties and dress prettly plainly most of the time. Jeans, plain shirt (t, polo, button-down), and plain tennis shoes. Sometimes I just feel like using it so I walk up to the grocery store and buy a few pieces of fruit or something, or to the coffee shop. I am very comfortable using it in these...
