Funny, I thought that rattlesnakes were only native to the Americas. How could Arab archers use stell tipped arrows dipped in rattlesnake venom before the discovery of the Americas, and before steel had ever been smelted? Iron, perhaps, but steel? No freakin way in h-e-double hockeysticks.
Oh, and if these flying carpets were anti-magnetic, what allowed the user to control their altitude and direction of travel?
This is just naother loadum of hokum.
