  •  His arms and armor.... (0+ / 0-)

    ....though perhaps not very impressive by our standards, would have given him a considerable technological advantage over a pure "child of nature." One up again for technology.

    •  Yeah, except that Grendel (4+ / 0-)

      couldn't be harmed by weapons. That's why Beowulf strips naked and wrestles him.

      Or at least that's the reason we're given.

      •  Yeah, but that's not what *really* happened (0+ / 0-)

        You see, I'm a time traveler, from a race called the Tome Lards.
        You see, I was there. Beowulf had to strip down, otherwise he'd have been unable to hold up himself and the weapon I tossed his way to throw at Grendel.
        Once he got off all that iron, he was able to catch the M2 BMG, then toss it at Grendel.
        Grendel then tried to catch it, fall, knocked over his tip bowl at the bar and stormed off after finally collecting his tips off of the floor.

        The rest is just exaggeration of many retellings of that old bar fight.   ;)

        Yes, my eyes are brown for a good reason.  :P
