I am not as impressed by this one, as I can get more information in under 3 seconds with one google search.

There is not enough detail to be really useful or give someone a sense for how this ranking system works together. What qualifies as a Baron or Count or Marquis in The West is very dfferent than what qualifies someone as a Nan, Bo, or Hou. These ranks provide a loose guideline for social positioning, but really don't provide much explanation as to anything about this.

Definite stub material here I'm afraid.

Sword of long term deadlyness

       By: Cheka Man

Held in a lead sheath the blade of this sword is tipped with uranium and any wound from it, even a tiny one, will go cancerous, although the effects may not show up for months or even years.
