"omen pidgeon" sounds like "homing pidgeon", as in those birds that are trained to carry a message and return home. And omen pidgeon portends coming events. (Spider Robinson fans will know where I stole this from) Sorta like when magician Doug Henning had a dove poop on him at his wedding. When the...

Considering that anyone with a pulse and an internet connection can add to a wiki, I wouldn't even be concerned about that.... More or less, anyone who would bother to try to trash someone on a wiki is more than likely a crackpot or a punky teenager... You know the old "Consider the source" bit. In...
One of the things that prevented me from reading any of Sim's essays was their enormous length. Ironically, that's also what put me off reading the essay about him. I was quite fascinated by Sim's cosmogeny (which you'll find in the beginning of the last collected Cerebus volume). Apparently the unw...
Darn, he's just too quick for me.Rokas wrote:Dude, Solidus already posted that here:
They say that wolves won't actually attack humans (ask the guy in my avatar). Not that I'm about to put that theory to the test, you understand. Admittedly an elf and a rac'conan might be a different matter, although there is of course at least one place where elves and wolves get along fine.
I'll give you good odds that Quentyn's stuck with the elf for a while. Why? Firstly because she's good for lots of convenient plot complications, and second because she's the only person in these parts who's likely to give him any useful information, willing or not.
That would probably make a good scene for a movie.Jaydub wrote:...The other half is running the other direction fearing an alien invasion. Quentyn will find a young kid just his size hiding in the shadows and it will scare the heck out of both of them.
Not unless he hits one of the crew. Hitting the ballon would only cause a slow leak, remember?TGIF wrote:Let's just hope he doesn't have a crossbow handy, or Quentyn's journey will have an abrupt detour.
... Has he been vaccuum packed for freshness? :lol: ... Oh, yeah, I'll bet he's "fresh" after spending all day in armour! The last panel reminded me of an illustration for Gene Wolfe's story "Straw" which iirc is about a group of medieval mercenaries in a deliberately anachronistic hot air balloon.
DUNE: HOUSE ATREIDES, HOUSE HARKONNEN, and HOUSE CORRINO by Brian Herbert and Kevin C. Anderson. My father said that this would likely not be as good as the original Dune. I haven't read that book yet, but I can honestly say that this prequel trilogy is some of the best science-fiction I've ever se...
So which school of political theory does the phrase "stinking hippy shmucks" come from?! One of the things I really can't stand about politics is the way each side believes the other side holds the particular opinions it does JUST TO PISS THEM OFF. It's enough to make you want to go and live up a tr...
