Yay! His hair's cut, and he's still going strong! I know you like feedback (I sure do :)), so...

Siberian Railroad: Suhweet! I'm working on a Magical Victorian Goth Steampunk setting for two of my players right now, and this has some good, inspirational tidbits on large scale engineering projects!

Journal of Western Martial Arts: Well, technically, I already knew about this site, but still a very nice resource :).

Coal Mining: This was vaguely interesting, but more interesting to me was the link at the bottom of the page to Prehistoric Burial :). That's really helping with my design of some ancient ruins/barrow mounds for a fantasy campaign. Yeah, baby :). This, combined with that Nordic funeral link from a month or two ago you dropped, and I'm set!

Liverpool Labrynth: See Siberian Railroad. Yeah, yeah, YEAH :D.

Interesting tidbit from the Quarterstaff link:

On the 4th of September, John Strynger late of Babworth, laborour, assaulted Henry Pereson of Babworth with a staff worth 1d.
Unfortunately, the document doesn't state whether this was a d6 or d8...
