I thought the whole point of flail weapons was that peasants could use them effectively in advanced ways since they were masters of flailing wheat to begin with. There were few conscripted armies at this time so soldiers and mercenaries tended to come from the underclasses. With no conscription there was little free time to train, so armies had to be mobile and use the skills they already had in battle. A peasant who'd been holding a flail every day for 15 years would have no problem carrying one of these things around.

Seeing a bunch of guys with these weapons, say, on the outskirts of Acre, might have had a demoralizing effect for enemies that had never seen them before.

Farming flails were large, two-handed affairs. The head of the flail wasn't on a chain at all. It looked more like a staff with a hinge near the end. All well and good against a pile of wheat, but a moving target trying not to get hit and trying to hit you? Not to say that they never saw combat, numerous peasent rebellions probably put them on the battlefield. Hell, flails are older than Egypt. If there was a way to make a truly effective weapon out of them we haven't managed it in millenia.

Face it, guys. This one, he's right about.

The Wikipedia article in question:

Unrevised as of 2014/12/04. If you check the talk page, many people have raised similar concerns over the years.

Obviously it's not a star. A star would be many times the size and mass of the Earth, which would make it an incredibly cumbersome and inefficient weapon. Even manufacturing such a weapon would be practically impossible with modern technology and knowledge.

That's what made stars the great equalizer: their sheer mass and size made it appear not that the peasant was wielding it against an attacker, but that the peasant and attacker both were doing handstands on the surface of the star. The disorientation alone was usually enough to render the other party helpless, but if that wasn't enough, the gravity and high temperature of the star usually did the trick.

You guys are taking the name too literally. "Morning Star" was not a reference to a star, but rather to the planet *Venus*, which, as any experienced occultist can tell you, is an aspect of Lucifer, Prince of Air and First Star of the Morning. The Morning Star weapon was so-called because it was made of hardened sulfur, bewitched with black magicks, and used by the Vatican's Templar Agents in false flag operations meant to advance the interests of the Demiurge (such as the Fall of Constantinople and the signing of the Magna Carta). The lack of any historical evidence is solid proof that the satanic Old Word Order actively suppressed this information.

probably just easier to shove a handle into the dirt and use earth anyways.

Stars are a lot smaller in the morning, that's why you can't see them very well.

I read it as 'Morning Star' fails'

God bless him. Those Morning Stars in the museum would've been left flailing.
