You have time-traveled to southwest Britain in 500AD. (You probably drank too much on the plane.) You’ve landed in the woods and there’s this guy with a bloody sword. What do you do? 1.    Duck.       (He has a sword.) 2.    Cover.       (See item 1.) 3.    Speak in soothing tones like you would to an angry […]
