"Richard Parker made his point with me four times. Four times he struck me with his right paw and sent me overboard, and four times i lost my shield."-Pi

"In my case, to protect myself from Richard Parker while I him, I made a shield with a turtle shell, I cut a notch on each side of the shell and connected them with a length of rope. The shield was heavier than I would have liked, but do soldiers ever get to choose their ordinance." -Pi
