You say that rates are rising in younger people, but also that very few people have it, percentage wise. On the hypochondriac scale of worry, should I be accutely worried about these things, or just mildly aware? Answer with as much candor as disclaimers allow.

I have always felt like media has portrayed cancer as something everyone gets, but it also feels like that might be an exaggeration, and I just only have so much worry to dole out in my life.

Is cancer a cost basis risk assessment that most people will win against, but that when you lose it's the worst?

As someone who's been making mail for almost 20 years, I never thought I'd see this headline! I've made everything from rings to haubarks to 'real' riveted mail. One question I'd like to ask, have you ever come across any particular specimens of specific note, a sort of 'ulfberht' of the armor world if you will? What is the most interesting piece of mail you've studied? Also I found it funny reading the comment of which is the best depiction on-screen of mail. There are literally hundreds of examples, but one of the very few you'll find is in 'Kingdom of Heaven'. One of the only times I've seen a character properly maintaining their mail on-screen by rubbing it with olive oil! Thanks for doing this AMA!
