What would be the consequences of a smallsword wound to the belly?

I’m 20, I practice fencing. My height is 192 cm, I usually fence against shorter opponents. They often manage to drive their smallsword into my belly. That’s why I’m curious: what would it be like to get wounded into the belly by a real smallsword? How lethal would it be? How painful? How would I react?

You seem to be rather fond of this sort of question

It didn’t have micro transactions though, you just had to pay for the full game

This government seems more interested in sending immigrants to Rwanda than doing anything that would actually help anyone

I had knockoff coco pops once and they tasted like cardboard

You can’t really get any more outrageous than Death to all but Metal

Sounds exactly like what happened to me when I had bad anxiety. Definitely worth talking to a therapist about

I was a huge fan of steam engines when I was younger, so I used to go to heritage railways a lot as a child. Also when I had an LPG car, the place I used to go for fuel also sold coal

While I have to say that A-Level history was deathly boring in some places, some parts of it really interested me, and it gave me the proper skills to be able to do my own research and properly scrutinise historical sources

Getting real WWI vibes - it’ll be an adventure, we’ll get to go to new and exciting places, it won’t last too long…

No, but I think this is only because I’m the ‘tech guy’ in my family and I’ve had years of helping my grandparents in their misadventures in using Windows, and I know it’s not their fault that they don’t understand, so I’m naturally patient with them

I studied early soviet history and Lenin was a total nutcase - the USSR was totalitarian from the start. It wasn’t a popular revolution, it was a hostile takeover of a nation

Another game launch, another broken game. How hard is it to just release a game that works? This is a port as well - pretty much their entire job with this was fixing issues and optimisation

I’m so glad I saw this at the cinema - genuinely one of the best films I have seen for a long time

And wow! Hey! What’s this thing suddenly coming towards me very fast? Very very fast. So big and flat and round, it needs a big wide sounding name like … ow … ound … round … ground! That’s it! That’s a good name – ground!

I wonder if it will be friends with me?

Oh no, not again

I think thats a pretty good way of seeing it

It’s not so bad if there’s loads of other cars, but if you set off onto a quiet road, it can be quite easy to zone out and forget where you are if you’re not careful

I think you might be on the wrong instance

This is something I wrestle with sometimes as an engineering student and I think it does vary from country to country. You’ve got to ask yourself how the world would be different without those companies - whether other less friendly countries would come to prominence and whether the removal of the such a deterrence would make wars more common. But on the other hand, you should think about how those weapons are used and whether it’s ‘right’ like the defence of Ukraine, or more objectionable like some of the more polarising conflicts around the world. It’s a very difficult question but personally I don’t think I would work for a weapons company coz I don’t know how I’d feel about making something that is designed to kill people
