trauco commented on the word yesternight
HORATIO: I saw him once; he was a goodly king.
HAMLET: He was a man, take him for all in all: I shall not look upon his like again.
HORATIO: My lord, I think I saw him yesternight.
HAMLET: Say what?
HORATIO: My lord, the king your father.

trauco commented on the word poetician
Vicente Huidobro was a poetician, afterwards, the politicians decided to keep it real and bombed his lawn.
Ah! and they also mugged and beat him up some times on the street, politicians have to maintain order ya know.
After all, if too many people get into the business, how honest politicians will be able to afford their bling?
trauco commented on the word phlogiston
"Its major property was that it had negative mass."
However, this old theory requires that phlogiston has weight when used to explain burning (since ashes weigh less most of the time), but when used to explain the corrosion it required that it had no weight or negative weight, since corroded metals weigh the same or more as they did before corrosion.
A completely schizophrenic theory

trauco commented on the word einhänder
Einhänder, means one-handed
when fighting; without shield, dominant hand with weapon on the front, dominant foot on the front, exposing less body surface, a decent stance when facing/using piercing weapons etc.
It's not a weapon, but the way you stand when using "poking" weapons, instead of "slashing" weapons (It's a crappy stance for slashing weapons as you can't generate enough momentum).

trauco commented on the word isangelous cuirass
The muscularity of the ideal male torso was standardized in Hellenistic and Roman times, and ossified as the heroic cuirass.
So this could be related to a cannon of perfection with angels as pinnacle?
