Lots of good times to go to. Knighthood just sounds like a purposeful life. Women were decent and ladylike. Men were brave and lived by a code. (This may all be lies, but I’m sticking by it)

sounds good though have you seen many college kids up in Boston an dother big cities lately?

WOW the women are more manly than the supposedly guys and the guys are more girlie than most women.

Hell I don;t know what happened to many early 20’s and to high school age boys but even my sons tell me that many are just little fairies who won;t get dirty, never had a fight, cry, wear spandex and helmets to ride their bicycle to the next door neighbor and as my wife tells me ,.

he last thing she wants to see is grown men wearing tight spandex.

Imagine sticking these kind of guys in your time machine and send them back to when all men were real men LOL EEK

How did a knight in all that armour go to the toilet when riding on a horse into battle, or not in battle for that matter....You all should take off your rose colored glass’s and think what it really was like...:O) no central air, etc...

I found this somewhere, sounds excellent to me.

The Knight’s Code of Honor

THE CODE:
Thou shalt respect the weak and constitute thyself the defender of them.
Thou shalt love the land to which thou hast sworn fealty.
Thou shalt not recoil before thine enemy.
Thou shalt make war upon evil without cessation.
Thou shalt scrupulously perform thy noble duties be they not contrary to the laws of the land.
Thou shalt be generous and give freely to everyone.
Thou shalt never lie and shall always be faithful to thy word.
Thou shalt be everywhere and always the champion of the Right and the Good against Injustice and Evil.

THE MEASURE:
A Knight is sworn to Valor;
His heart must know only Virtue;
His Perfect blade must defend the helpless,
And his might shall uphold all weak.
His breath shall bring a word that speaks only truth.
His justly wrath shall undo the wicked.
