Poor Elwing! *raises a glass* [In reply to] Can't Post

Actually, she was not the first.. Feanor wore all three of them on a headband to festivals and such in Valinor, and a nice fool he must have looked. IMHO, of course. Wink

We are the fighting Uruk-Hai! We slew the great warrior! Well, yeah, first he killed a bunch of us and another whole lot of Mauhúr's lads, and we had to shoot enough arrows into him to drop a Mûmak. But we got him!

Ah... [In reply to] Can't Post

the eternal question about who invented what! Darwin or Wallace? Leibniz or Newton? :)

Na Vedui, did you intend this to be a game? I'll play:

Let's hear it for...the Dwarves of the Blue Mountains - inventors of anti-gravity!
"And in that time they made for him the Nauglamir. It was a carcanet of gold, and set therein were gems uncounted from Valinor; but it had a power within it so that it rested lightly on its wearer as a strand of flax..."

Invented by Gildor Inglorion, who got word of Frodoto Gandalf and Elrond almost simultaneously, it seems.

Inventor of Post-it Notes


'I should say,' answered Strider, 'that they stood for G3, and were a sign that Gandalf was here on October the third: that is three days ago now. It would also show that he was in a hurry and danger was at hand, so that he had no time or did not dare to write anything longer or plainer. If that is so, we must be wary.'
