Weapons on Walls -- Cool or Creepy? - Page 2

post #16 of 24
I've always got the vibe that guys with weapons on walls are really looking forward to a break-in so that they can put them to good use and live out their melee combat dreams.

Yeah, that pawn shop katana hanging on your wall MIGHT cut the burglar before the blade snaps and flies back into your face.

Not swords in my case, but I do have a few nicer shotguns and rifles on my office wall, mostly items that were refinished to look quite good but not in shape enough to be fired, with the exception of the commemorative pistols bought during deployment, those are in perfect shape but won't ever be fired.

I think it might have been NPR, but they had a segment on psychopaths who have done very well in business. They found some old man who, in his day, made a ton of money and had this sadistic glee for firing people. When the interviewer went to his home, had taxidermized predatory animals all around his home. I always thought that was amazing. If I was to seduce anyone, Id rather be surrounded by taxidermized predatory animals than swords.

That was Jon Ronson, and his great book "The Psychopath Test."

You dont have to be a psychopath to collect swords. You just have to be a sword enthusiast.
