Hooded Katara Dagger

  • Dated: mid 16th century
  • Place of Origin: South India (Srirangam or Tanjore)
  • Measurements: overall length: 22in (560mm). Blade length: 15in (380mm)

A similar weapon exists in the Metropolitan Museum, New York (No.36.25.905) and is pictured on page 146 (fig.15.3) in the “Hindu Arms & Ritual” book by Robert Elgood.

This particular one was locally made, featuring a multi fullered blade. The shell guard, or hood, ends with a yali finial. There are overlaid steel borders, which interestingly have fine rope twist decoration.

Made in Islamic style, the katar has four cusp arch design where the hilt meets the blade.

Relentless Teasing Amongst Residents

wayfaringmd:

Jerkface Resident who is extremely full of himself gives a short powerpoint in AM rounds on Carbon monoxide poisoning…

Slide 1 (Jerkface reads from the slide): Carbon Monoxide is a gas…

Wayfaring:

Whoa! Someone took some chemistry classes in college!

Jerkface continues: …as I was saying, carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas…

Resident 2: …and that’s the first line from the Wiki article on Carbon Monoxide, isn’t it?

Ebola VirusThis is the most realistic rendering of Ebola virus. It takes Ebola virus only 12 days to get rid of its victim right after the appearance of the first symptoms. EV disease outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. Fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are considered to be the natural host of the Ebola virus.More about Ebola virus: http://goo.gl/y5pwwImage credit: Ivan Konstaninov, Visual Science, MoscowSource: http://goo.gl/gZvt2
