That's what always confused me... Unless you lose control and become a psychopath, how is shapeshifting a curse? If anything, it's a benefit. It enhances your senses, your strength, speed, and general ability. You'd be better than human; an Ubermensch if you will. Personally, I wish they'd change th...

This is true for all seeds of all species for all combinations of salt water? No, but most of them it is. If even ONE species in this case dies out, it totally invalidates your theory, as it would mean what is here now wouldn't survive the flood, wouldn't it? For starters, I haven't suggested a sin...

That should help . Both sides are as bad as each other really. Though you should know Christianity is the third-largest religion in India, with about 24 million of them. As to Mob Bosses who live in mansions, how many times do you hear of them wanting to get out of the game? It's the life they were...

Shock Explosive. Solid Nitric Iodine and Mr.Clean. Mix in equal amounts and refrigerate overnight. Pour off the sludge in the morning, and you have a rather unstable explosive. Throw it at anything and BOOM!

Sorry, just wanted to contribute

Oooo, I want to add things to this list... 926. No substituting Catapult Rocks for "Bags o' Flaming Cats", despite the word Cat being in the name. 927. Fireball spells are not for lighting candles. 928. Never tempt Paladins to evil by saying "C'mooon... C'mooooooon..." 929. No introducing the Elven ...

I think it's worth pointing out that ALL ground is Sacred to most Native Tribes. Some may have slightly more significance, but they were typically nomadic, so the Dead often were either burned, slung up on a stand or in a tree for the birds to eat (Letting their body return to nature), or buried any...

I think the Aztecs had a lot of Were-Jaguar myths. Yaguareté-abá, I believe.

Nor have I heard of armed milita's of Christians executing Hindus or Buddhist in California or any such organized activity. Not to say that incidents don't happen. Abortion clinics do get bombed and Churches do get burnt to the ground. However compared the sheer level of hate that exist in the ME f...

[...unWARP!!!] Seeds. Merciful... Frak... I just said that this is, once again, not possible. Take an apple and place it underwater for forty days and shake the tank vigorously constantly over this time (I recommend a paint shaker). Cover it in black paper as well.

Vampiric origins vary worldwide, and so do Werewolves. Most contend the modern vampire we know, the Count Dracula Vampire, originated in places like Austria as a metaphor for the ruling aristocracy feeding on the blood of the peasants. As to Werewolves, there are a LOT of them. The earliest example ...

I'm assuming your argument is "oh the ark would never hold all those animals" for ecology or marine engineering.... My first question is "how large do you think the Ark was?" Followed shortly by "how many animals do you think Noah took on that ark?" Nnnot entirely. The simplest ones I could think u...

I agree. Wanderwolf has my total support here. He's even handed, intelligent, and more than qualified for this. I've had my disagreements with him, at least I think I have, but he has my respect.

Those aren't Vampires. Vampires are the feral, blood thirsty monster who sneaks from a crypt and hunts someone down. The over-sexualisation of Vampirism is terrible... As to the whole soul-returning-to-the-body thing, keep in mind that God is all powerful, but He isn't the only player on the scene, ...

Actually, that's how we do it in Toronto too. Any time someone dies in the comitting of a crime, it's a homicide.

I have a monkey (Not a wrench, a full sized Orangutan) to throw in the works here. Toronto is a city of several million, about on par with Washington D.C. Public Carrying Laws are not in place.

There's also the question of biodiversity. I have little doubt that the Noahic Flood occurred, I just question WHEN. Unless animals speciate at an INCREDIBLE rate, there is little way they could become what we have today. Not to mention that the Ark would really not be big enough to hold all the ani...

Wights in literal term does, yes, mean human. However, in Folklore (Particularly Scandanavian), a Wight is a human-like fey or spirit, such as an Elf or a Wraith. Also, if Quentyn called them Rat Wights, it stands to reason such a creature exists, does it not? There ARE stranger creatures. And by th...
