I’d have to say the heliograph is mightier than the naviscaput. Possibly the other way round.

I forgot where I heard it but I once heard something along the lines, “Neither the pen nor the sword is mightier but rather the hand that wields them.”

I think if I had to choose one as a weapon I’d easily go for the sword. I do think there is some form of immortality in good writing. I don’t mean my writing. I mean some books have been remembered far longer than a human life.

I’m not going to vote because it really depends on who your dealing with.
