Woman Addicted To Eating Mattresses

The TV show ‘My Strange Addiction’ seeks to find the most obscure obsessions – chocolate and cigarettes just won’t cut it here. So during their two-hour premiere event, viewers were introduced to Jennifer. For more than two decades, Jennifer has been eating mattresses. She said that she ate about a square foot of mattress each day.

“I start out with the good stuff. The good stuff to me is the pillow-top itself,” Jennifer

She admittedly only eats until she reaches the springs, or when it ‘starts to smell funny’. Doctors have advised Jennifer that she would die if she continued – to her surprise. While it was a serious health matter, themattresseatingwoman2 Philadelphia Inquirer’s David Hiltbrand couldn’t resist joking, “We would have thought a steady diet of mattress would make you drowsy.” She has since vowed to stop at the concern of her family.

What The Movies Got Wrong About Swords

In fantasy novels and action movies, we like to see weapons at work but we don’t particularly care how they were created. Some swords have even more elaborate origin stories than the characters who wield them. All the stranger then, that no one writing our favorite books and movies ever bothered to google how these weapons are really made.

Myth 1: Making a Blade Only Takes One Movie Scene

All you have to do is heat the carbon steel, pound it into shape, then heat it again like they do in movies. Those montages never take more than a couple minutes; surely you could churn out countless swords a day? In fact, a single longsword can take anywhere from 40 to 80 hours of forge time.

Myth 2: Magic Metals Make Super-Powered Swords

We’ve already covered this one in our article about the reality of shows like Game of Throne’s Valyrian Steel Blades. Sadly, here in the real world, we just have steel. There are no hidden mines spitting up extra special sword metal, no meteorites raining magic space iron down on our heads.

Myth 3: Katanas Are the Greatest Sword Ever Invented

pulpfictionakatana

If you’ve ever watched a Tarantino then you are well aware of this myth. Draped in honour, these samurai swords are folded multiple times to get them to unparelled sharpness levels. However, katanas are typically made of pig iron, and are only folded to remove the impurities of the sub-par metal.

How You Can Get Your Own Game of Thrones Valyrian Style Blade

joffreysword

“Careful, Your Grace, nothing cuts like Valyrian steel.”―Grand Maester Pycelle to King Joffrey 

Just like your favourite characters on the critically acclaimed Game of Thrones series, you too can own your very own Valyrian steel. Beloved characters like the late Ned Stark, Jaime Lannister, and the less beloved Joffrey Baratheon have all wielded this mythical Valyrian blade, thought to be eternally sharp, lighter, stronger, and sharper than even the best castle-forged steel.

Praise for Game of Thrones “…Falling into a gorgeous, stained tapestry. This epic, unflinching fantasy-noir takes our preconceptions of chivalry, nobility and magic and gets medieval on them.” Time Magazine  

nedsword

Current HBO endorsed replicas are currently made of hand forged high carbon steel, one of the strongest types of steel alloy. As a mix of iron and carbon, it is excellent for making cutting tools. The hardness levels and metal wear resistance of high carbon steel is also rated very highly.
