Just a new member here saying hello.I have skulked here long enough checking out the eye candy and listening into the discussions so thought it was time to sign up.
My interests are just about anything that catches my imagination for 5 minutes. At the moment it is veering towards Pirates/smugglers/highwaymen. Long live the tricorn I say.
But have dabbled in back of beyond, VSF and even twilight 2000.
So anyway hello.

Hello there.

Bicornes beat tricornes in Top Trumps. Tricornes are so 18th Century. Get with the times!  :)

Welcome to Lead Adventures.

The tricorne is a gentlemanly and refined hat, utilitarian and stylish. The bicorne is a haberdasher's joke, and Plynkes is not to be trusted under ordinary circumstances.

Notorious violent ruffian, robber, torturer, murderer and sadist, Dick Turpin wore a tricorne. That's just how gentlemanly they are.



Birds descended from dinosaurs? What utter tosh! What will these crazy, absent-minded boffins come up with next?

Have you ever seen a bicorne? Do you ascribe to an aesthetic which praises absurdity? The bicorne says: Hello, world! I am wearing a stiffened tablecloth on my head! My hat offers neither shelter from the elements nor the sun's glare, but instead renders me immediately identifiable by my bizarre appearance!

I will not rise to your dinosaur-baiting, either.

The Bicorne is just the poor mans Tricorne. Its stands to reason one less corne can't be good.

Never seen such blatant toadying. He's just looking to score free Gloire stuff, that's all. We should run him out of town on a rail.

With a bicorne plonked athwartships on his noggin. That'd learn 'im.

You know, Poly, not everyone is motivated by the same base instincts that drive your actions. We should ride you out of town on a rail with a tricorne plopped jauntily atop your noggin.

Free stuff indeed. He'll have to pay his nickel like the rest of them. Except for all those FABULOUS FREE DOWNLOADS (http://rattrapproductions.com/speakeasy/viewforum.php?f=9). He can have as many has he wants to the limits of Rich's bandwidth.

Edit: No, there is almost no end to the madness. However we are both easily distracted so this will probably end shortly.

Yes, let's forget about all this unpleasantness. Welcome aboard, old thing.

But remember, I only said that Bicornes beat Tricornes in Top Trumps. And they do, in four out of the five categories. Here's the relevant cards from the Hats and Headgear through History set:

And the good people at Top Trumps never lie.

@Plynkes´ last post:

ROFL!

Now, now, I don´t really want to get embroiled in that (ah what the hell!), but there´s even a mecha thingie wearing a bicorne:

(http://www.mahq.net/MECHA/gundam/g/gf13-009nf.jpg)

And that´ll stomp every tricorne into the ground... :lol:

And now, for the voice of reason, actually, you could fold a circular hat-flap in both ways. So, shock and awe(TM), all hats are created equal...

;) :?
