The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

And that demonstrates the problem with trying to sword fight whilst flying.

Guys, I've merged the two identical threads into one, and moved it to Off Topic. It's Samurai. It's jetpack. But not Steampunk.

Upon second viewing, it is apparent that these guys aren't moving the way pilots move in videos I've seen of real jetpacks in action. Also, their jetpacks are missing the hand controls that are on every real jetpack I've ever seen. And also, they are swinging back and forth.

Kind of a letdown. But there are occasional conventions for real jetpack enthusiasts, and maybe two people with the real thing will be inspired to try this.

I thought their flight times seemed awfully long!

By the Beans of Life do my thoughts acquire speed
My hands acquire a shaking
The shaking becomes a warning

I believe that regular rocket packs fueled with hydrogen peroxide are limited to less than two minutes of flight. This would require a fencing style oriented toward a quick win, with less emphasis on defense and risk reduction.
