Okay, we’ve all seen Legolas do some pretty crazy shit, alright? Well, trust me, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Meet Lars Anderson, a Danish archer who apparently went back through a lot of old manuscripts, started with the notion that everything in them (even the stuff that modern archers said was impossible) was totally true and not just invented to make a guy look good, and then trained for years. This is the result.
This is just a reminder that, sometimes, reality is so much more AWESOME than anything we imagined for our books. That sometimes the myths are true, and legend is not hyperbole.
This Friday just got excellent. 🙂 Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go buy a bow.
