I would love to know what the blade was originally like

Dating of charcoal from one of the post holes shows that the grave is from around the year 1030, at the very end of the Viking Age. “And that fits in well with the discovery of the English coin.

The sword is 94 cm long; although the iron blade has rusted, the handle is well preserved. It is wrapped with silver thread and the hilt and pommel at the top are covered in silver with details in gold, edged with a copper alloy thread,” said project leader Zanette Glørstad.

And they're hard at work screwing with the 2020 census; this crap isn't going to slow down, let alone stop, until they start firing, fining and jailing people for this crap.

Being interested in quakes and volcanoes, I've read about the Cascadia Subduction Zone before; just ran across this on the 'One of these days' matter.

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman apparently misses not being in the Soviet Union, and wants to follow their lead of using psychiatry to punish people for bad thinking.  Miserable little bastard.

In a truly open-minded community, dedicated to our school’s motto lux libertas (Light and Liberty), all people would have this ability to speak their minds. What I learned that day at UNC, however, is that free speech, so fundamental to the academy, is only permitted to those who toe the “progressive” line. This exercise could have looked at our different backgrounds in an effort to cultivate true community, built on respect and politeness. Instead, we were “asked” to accept a perversion of true open-mindedness. Instead of encouraging us to each bring ourselves to the table and explore our differences cordially, we were told that some differences, namely non-“progressive” beliefs, were unacceptable. In order to be accepted, we must make our views uniform.

What the Iranians are saying about Obamas' cave(or assistance, whatever) includes
-) All nuclear installations and sites are to continue their work contrary to the early demands of the other party, none of them will be dismantled.
-) The policy on preventing enrichment uranium is now failed, and Iran will go ahead with its enrichment program.
-) Iran’s nuclear infrastructure will remain intact, no centrifuges will be dismantled and research and development on key and advanced centrifuges such as IR-4, IR-5, IR-6, IR-8 will continue.
Yeah, this is going to be GREAT...

I'd love to know what that blade originally cost. Gold and silver couldn't have been cheap even without the labor.

Equivalent of a handmade engraved rifle from a master gunsmith, I'd say

As to what the Iranians are saying about the "agreement", there is such a difference here that there isn't any "meeting of the minds", so under contract law there is no agreement, contractual, executive, treaty or otherwise in the minds (have we ensured they have them?) of Obama, Kerry and whoever else had any part in this travesty of international dealings.
I can't believe President Obama's claim he was any sort of professor of constitutional law at any law school accredited by anyone.
