Least Cool Sword Fight of the Year

Sword fights are cool (in the modern world, anyway) -- but is there anything less cool than swordfighting someone thirty years your elder, and then accidentally killing a woman in her late 70s?

Way to go, dude. You just took one of the coolest things in the world and ruined it. After centuries of swordfighting moving away from its history of brutality and violence, and moving toward sport and historical recreation, you've knocked it back to being a tool of evil and stupidity again.


  1. And one of the combatants is named Adolf (born during WWII). A RL episode in search of a John Irving novel, if ever there were one. :-/
