When I read that, I was imagining Sean Connery saying it ala Celeberty Jeopardy. "I'll take Swords for $100"

Yeah, that POS is situated next to the William Wallace memorial overlooking Stirling - another case of Hollywood movies rewriting history, so that generations of Scots growing up will think Wallace looked like Gibson...:rolleyes:

That and the fact that Wallace was over six foot...

I particularly like the Victorian style kilt :rolleyes:

At least people are paying attention to Scotland now on a front other than lake monsters or men in skirts.

I don't know anything about kilts. How is that a Victorian kilt?

William Wallace was actually a 6ft 6in tall lake monster in a skirt? AWESOME! That would make a great movie.

The Victorians invented the modern kilt and the family tartans as a nice way of sanitising and cutesifying the wildness of Scottish history I suppose.

A real 'kilt' was a single piece of patterned fabric (tartan but not as clearly delineated by clan as we are led to believe) that was wrapped round the body as a whole garment rather like saris and similar things are. The clansmen used to use them for all sorts of stuff ie impromptu sleeping bags. It was probably not worn in the medieval period of Wallace's life

The fact that statue appears to be wearing a modern kilt just makes it all the more laughable.

Kilts were just for day to day wear. In battle, they would don full evening gowns with sequins.

He's wearing a skirt there, and from the look on his face, he's just seen Nessie!

Holy shit! Why can't I type? I type all damn day long and still haven't improved my typing skills. As far as I'm concerned this is the greatest mystery of the universe.

Mine suck too. It takes real concentration to not type like drunk JMJMJM all the time.

It's puzzling. I type words that aren't even close to what I mean or close to the right letters on the keyboard.

I thought Patrick McGoohan was great as the hero of that movie. Nice happy ending too.

I'm glad my trip through Stirling was pre-dork-statue. You could see the monument (some of the time) from the castle.

Is that what Funko The Gay said to Nikhil The Willing right before "That Picture" was taken?

no, that was 'you should be kissed, and often...and by someone who knows how!'
