  3. As human beings we are pretty much the pinnacle of balance. Not sure if an actual tail would better that.

    • @awlditzy Considering my balance improves by at least an order of magnitude if I have a sword or similar item to compensate weight shifts, I'd say a tail would be useful. It'd fulfill that same function while leaving hands free.

    • @nerthos hmm. Not sure i could say the same for myself with rifle in hand but not entirely the same anyways. As to say, i can't "parkour" with carrying one.

    • @awlditzy I sometimes do stuff like chasing cats over roofs while holding my sword on my right hand, so if I start to lose balance I can aim it towards the opposite direction to where I'm falling, and recover it. (a stick sometimes works too, but utually doesn't have enough weight to compensate for a sudden change of weight) Not sure I could do the same with a rifle due to how you're supposed to hold it. Plus a rifle can get damaged if you throw it around and it hits things, a sword rarely does unless you strike something really solid with the edge.

  6. I'd actually find a working tail, like a cat's, monkey's or rat's really useful. Without one I already have amazing balance, with one I'd never lose balance at all. A decorative tail is dumb though.

      • My great-grandfather's involvement in WWI is actually fairly interesting. He came to this country basically as a way to not die. He was in the front (german soldier, quite young at the time. Late teens to early twenties) and at one point his commander told the regiment that they were going to be overrun that night, regardless of how well they fought. He also told them that there was a boat about to sail to America, not sure if they knew exactly where, just somewhere in the continent. So he and his brothers in arms were given the option to stay and die, or hop on the boat with only what they were wearing. He and a bunch other men took the boat, and ended up somewhere in central America, then hopped on either the same or another boat to Argentina. Got jailed for desertion as prisoners of war for a while until the war ended, and then started a life in a rural area, settling and growing crops and raising animals.

        • I only know that my grandfather was a sniper in the Army in the WWII. We didn't talk much about where and when he served but his rifle was among the only few possessions he had to his death. I do know my uncle was in Afghanistan under the 45th logistics regiment, closer to the end of the war there.

          • @awlditzy I don't really carry a card or anything as I don't need it for the kind of job I do, nor am signed up for taxes as that'd leech my income like mad right now (only need to be registered to do stuff like approve blueprints for complete installations for new houses or the like, it's cheaper to just pay someone who's registered to sign). But I have the papers around if needed.

          • @nerthos They give you a card, a shoulder patch for your work uniform and a paper listing the certifications you have under Automotive Service Excellence, but I have yet to meet anyone who carries their card. All I had to do was show my printed test results to my current place of work in order to get the payraises.

          • @awlditzy Oh, I only have these fancy certifications. Had them checked and re-stamped by the ministy of education a while back too. But yeah, the only practical use all that has is like you said, showing them at human resources to get the category/salary raises for being a qualified worker.

        • And until someone figures out how to trick the machine. Like my dad's coworkers using a hammer to flatten out 25c coins a bit more and make the machine believe they're 50c, thus buying coffee at half price and filling the machine of useless coins

        • I mean, in my family we have like... three generations of stockpiled tools. Basically enough variety to get any job done.
