    Best Weapon

    This thread will compare weapons from 10,000 B C to the present. I'll probably need some help on setting up a poll for each era. Our first choice

    I have chosen the club "if" I threw the spear or the rock, I would miss and whatever it was I was after would use it on me

    I would chose a good tongue and charisma as the best weapon. you can get a lot of folks motivated to use their best weapons to take out your enemies while you can take the high road and be adored. Thank you, thank you very much

    This is an interesting topic.

    Putting world politics aside, biological weapons are the single most effective weapon ever used in warfare.

    They cost almost nothing to deploy, can be protected against (on your side) and once deployed, continue to be effective, assuming the correct weapon is selected.

    Would not the value of a conversation be limited back then and be of little value?

    Spear.....

    Spears are not a traditional throwing weapon.....though Im sure some have been thrown..... but traditionally...they have been used to thrust or jab the enemy with.

    When you hear a redneck use the racial slur "spear chucker" he is probably wrong.... he would be better off using the word "spear thruster"

    If possible I would also like a club....because after safely...lol...getting your enemy on the ground I believe a club bashing to the head would be a quicker and more efficient method of delivering the final blow.....

    And of course Id want someone along with me to do the clubbing so I didnt get splattered with all that goo.

    While the spear (for throwing or thrusting) gives me a little room from my enemy... the spear is also a long (and possibly not very versatile) weapon that may be useless at really close quarters...

    The club, on the other hand, is basically a bludgeoning tool (the bone or rock can be used the same way)...

    If I had the option, I would like both the spear and the club... but if only one... the club.
