30) It costs the same to hire a ****** as it does a mercenary or a thief.
31) The Wright brothers weren't the first men to attain sustained, controlled flight in 1901; it was Ezio more than 400 years earlier.

If you haven't played ACB yet, then how can you know the civilians saved automatically have badass assassin skills. It's been my impression that you have to train them for a while before they become assassins. I'd think they start out at lvl 1 (being more of a blunt force thug) and by lvl 10 (when you can actually use them for BAM, large fights Ezio gets into, and hail of arrows, etc.) THEN they have badass assassin skills.

Men don't have a limited amount of sperm (though the possibility of birth defects begins to rise after a certain age). I can't remember who, but I remember hearing that someone famous in the past "impregnated a girl" when he was around 70. It's not impossible and 48 is definitely possible.

And as for #128... I can do that with my katana. It doesn't take that much skill to not cut yourself while running with a sword... just keep it away from your legs (and don't trip and fall). And doesn't Ezio and Altair both put the sword away if you sprint long enough or enter a freerun sequence? Looks like they're being careful too.

:: Disclaimer ::
All you kids out there reading this shouldn't run with swords. It can be dangerous if you aren't well trained. Think of this as your mother telling you not to run with scissors... only these scissors are much larger and can more easily hurt someone else too.

131: if you stab somebody important you enter a white area and are forced to talk to them while they lay there dying
132: going on revenge trips are useless because you will just end up letting the guy live anyway

I think I remember them saying in the ACII and in the manual of the first game that Lucy edited the perches, bales of hay, pigeon, and the white sheets into the program in order to help Desmond navigate Italy and the Third Crusade better.

Actually, even if you shoot someone from a distance, while you're standing in a large crowd on the dock and he's standing on a ship, you will be transported to his side to hear his final words before snapping back into your own body. And no one will notice anything.

Okay, scratch that. If you're running from an angry Orsi brother and happen to fall into the river, where you have to swim for miles and miles before you can grab a ledge and pull yourself out, and somewhere miles behind you the Orsi brother slips and falls into the river--you're transported to his side to hear his dying words, you get to pretend you killed him yourself, and then you end up alone in the river again miles away from the site of the accident.

(I so f-ed up that mission at first.)

Yeah, you're right about the training part, but still. A random civillian can go on missions and kill people.

No, it wouldn't. The Animus is based on puppeteering concept where Desmond can control Ezio and Altair as a puppet; that's how he learns Eagle Vision and to free-run. That's how Vidic does it with MP without messing up "history", since the people just controls his movements, not his real actions.

Also, with extra evidence, it says so in the Wikia. And since that's been there forever, no one has sought to remove it as an error.

there are some liberties they can take, but altering the world to place hay bales, which also affect other aspects the world shouldn't be one of them.

besides i don't like the idea of puppeteering, i prefer that its just as if desmond is ezio, he feels as he is in control when in actuallity he is just reliving a memory, but such sophisticated sensational inputs cause him the be able to do these things, because desmond feels as he already know, and technically he does. he only geneticaly remembers the eagle vision ability.

all i see the puppeteering concept as is a gameplay mechanic, to justify you being able to play.

I believe there was an explanation for the flowers in AC2.
Apperantly, there was the plague. And the flowers were supposed to cover up the smell of death.

From the Wikia:

In addition to hay, other piles of soft material can also be used, such as piles of leaves or flower petals.

In the first game tutorial they state that controlling their ancestors is a pupppeteering mechanic, yet Desmond sees things through their eyes.

What other liberties are you talking about?

I know they 'say' it's a puppeteering system, but that just seems likev justification for allowing you to control it.

and i mean things like a health bar or animus interfaces for everything, which i can imagine wouldn't be there if it was real.

I wouldnt be surprised if that wouldnt be there in the animus if it was real. Its a game. Its tough to play a game when you have no idea how much of everything you have, and have no map.
