Keep her away from Captain Kirk


Reminds me of the wild antlers on the now extinct Irish Elk.


Scythian stag, c 5th Century BC. Leather antlers, wooden body, originally covered in gold leaf. Originally top of headdress, found in a burial chamber in the Altai mountains. 

Raymond McElroy and his assistant Charlie Coyle were out fishing in Ireland when they pulled up a massive 10,500-year-old extinct Irish elk skull.

But sometimes, being the unstoppable force is more important than speed.


In Roman warfare, the testudo was a shield wall formation commonly used during battles, particularly sieges and was used to protect the soldiers from all types of missile attacks. The primary drawback to the formation was that because of its density, the men were required to move in close quarter unison which greatly sacrificed speed on the battlefield.
