I didn’t need 10 things since the first one was enough to start me chewing:

“Compared to long swords and battle axes wielded by barbarian hordes, the gladius seemed a child’s weapon: Short and dagger-like, not particularly good at slicing. Yet its six inches of stabbing point beat its longer, scarier counterparts in battle. Why? Because the Roman legions were trained to use it properly.”

So much anymore, the way we look at what we have, what we’re doing and how we’re doing it just needs to be tweaked a little to make us more effective and efficient.
