Re: The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim

Hm
Are you saying that just because I don't remember it doesn't mean it doesn't exist? Seems fake. =:)

Re: The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim

I just don't see how it's Tolkien. There's barely an idea of a story in the appendices, it's going to be as much Tolkien as Tolkien is Kalevala.

Re: The challenges ahead (Biden's America)

Does anyone know what's happening with the supposed influx of illegal immigrants across the border that has some people Very Worried? I haven't seen anything in the headlines, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything either way.

Re: News from Bree and other random discussions

That's true, it's just that when a modern Western person hears Venus, the image that comes to mind is probably less Sonic the Hedgehog and more Playboy.

Re: 2020 Election: Predictions, Results and Reactions

The angry Brooks tweeted a photo of his laptop (not a screen shot) with a tab open to a section of the law on criminal trespass. And his password taped to the screen. It went up at 10:41am and was still up 12 hours later. Because irony is so dead even the Necromancer can't revive it, Brooks serves o...

Re: What are you reading?

I'm rereading Feet of Clay and realized for the first time that not only dwarves use translations of their actual names when in Ankh-Morpork, but Cheery Littlebottom's actual name in Dwarvish is Sh’rt’azs.

Re: What are you reading?

Here's a sentence you won't find in Tolkien.
I wrote a third of Equal Rites in one weekend. In fact, after one of the nuclear power stations I was a press officer for exploded.
Followed by a story of a man who was too radioactive to be let into the nuclear power station.

Borrowed A Slip of the Keyboard, a collection of Pratchett's nonfiction. The nice thing about reading on a Kindle and HoF having such nice mobile site now is I can copy my favorite bits over.

Re: Bitcoin mining

Although as NE said, they are also useful for criminal purposes.
