I'm a chemist, not an IT whizz.
All right, I guess you're forgiven. I guess that means we need a topic...
Indeed. Something suitably Chissy.
Well, don't ask me! I've been gone!
I've no ideas either. I'm up to my eyebrows in travel plans and making kit for a show!
I am relaxed and calm after my holiday. Much like a Chiss!
Oh good. You can come up with a topic, then?
Thrawn as a God Emperor?
Sounds hot to me.
I'll sign up to that as well.
Without the Worm Metamorphosis. Still, I bet he'd have the hots for Hwi Noree.
Worm Metamorphosis? For some reason, I don't see Thrawn as somebody who would appreciate that sort of climate.
Read the Dune series.
I have. Hence the quip about climate.
Yeah, too dry. But I guess the advantage of being a God Emperor is choosing whatever dern planet you want to live on.
Leto Atreides II chose Arrakis, but by the time he's metamorphosed into Worm-Man, Arrakis has grass and forests, so Thrawn would be perfectly happy with the climate as it were.
I think he'd find the Fremen fascinating.
Everyone finds Fremen fascinating, save me.
I'm more interested in the Fish Speakers and Sardaukar.
Now, they are really fascinating. As well as Leto's Golden Path and theories on armies.
I must say I am unfortunately lost in the current discussion. Could someone enlighten me please?
Oh, yes I finally have moved and just got a working dialup line. It is good to be back. Any word from the other runner for equal representation and participation in the EUS?
No clue. I think they're talking about the Dune books, which I haven't actually read.
The Fremen are like human Sand People.
Nah, they're like warriors, and the Dune series is great, I recommend it.
Just don't read the KJA & Brian Herbert twozzle.
I dig Dune...I'm re-reading it in fact...but I've never read any of the other books. Do the KJA ones suck?
I haven't either. I'm still working my way through the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series...
But I'm going to the library today, so just tell me which Dune book to check out, and I'll start reading it.
Prenn: Since when is ANYTHING that KJA has written be good?
Fel: Start on Dune. It might be a hard for you to understand everything, but Frank Herbert's philosophical theories throughout the series really are quite awe inspiring for a man so poorly looked upon in the earlier years of his writing.
Yeah...it's quite possibly the most well-thoughtout book I've ever read.
