Not really, but hey - isn't the history of duelling and the role it played in society interesting?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duel

Does anyone know of any particularly bizarre duels? Particularly notorious duels? What is the silliest choice of weapon ever made?

Do you demand satisfaction? I do, so please tell me what you know about duels.

the best weapon is a laptop and free public wifi.


of great assistance ... digital cameras, incriminating photos, e-mails, or personal ads on select websites.

fill in the blanks with your imagination.

Does duelling still play any significant role in any 'modern' society?
