That's now bats and pterasaurs walk/ed. [In reply to] Can't Post

Six-limbed vertebrates don't make sense in real life. Sure, they could force that on Smaug, but then he wouldn't look as real as he could. If he had four legs and wings, there would be nowhere for the muscles that control the wings to fit or attach.

            Psychic powers came from the Ring, as is clearly written by Tolkien. xxxyyy Send a private message to xxxyyy Oct 31 2013, 3:29pm
                Where is it written by Tolkien? RosieLass Send a private message to RosieLass Oct 31 2013, 4:57pm
                    Writing about something and portaying it are two different things. xxxyyy Send a private message to xxxyyy Oct 31 2013, 7:24pm
                i think the spiders talking will be when Bilbo puts the ring on MouthofSauron Send a private message to MouthofSauron Oct 31 2013, 5:39pm
                    I highly doubt it FaramirAndEowynMorningStar Send a private message to FaramirAndEowynMorningStar Oct 31 2013, 5:57pm
                        Yes, but... Eruvandi Send a private message to Eruvandi Oct 31 2013, 6:10pm
                            There was a point to that, though, was there not? FaramirAndEowynMorningStar Send a private message to FaramirAndEowynMorningStar Oct 31 2013, 6:15pm
                                Wasn't it confirmed somewhere Skaan Send a private message to Skaan Oct 31 2013, 6:27pm
                                    I hope not. RosieLass Send a private message to RosieLass Oct 31 2013, 6:53pm

                                            The only place he said that was in Mordor and Sam was *wearing* the Ring at the time. RosieLass Send a private message to RosieLass Oct 31 2013, 7:51pm
                                            Because that's the word for speaking without using your voice. RosieLass Send a private message to RosieLass Oct 31 2013, 7:52pm
                                                Spider anatomy shouldn't allow for physical talking starlesswinter Send a private message to starlesswinter Oct 31 2013, 8:04pm

                                                            I'd be perfectly content with them simply moving their mandibles. RosieLass Send a private message to RosieLass Oct 31 2013, 8:31pm
                                                    Hush, its very religious and historical. AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 1 2013, 12:14am

                But Smaug cannot be a conversationalist only Bilbo can hear. That would suggest that AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 1 2013, 12:04am
            Agreed FoundEntwife Send a private message to FoundEntwife Oct 31 2013, 5:54pm
        I am thinking you will be so wrong! sycorax82 Send a private message to sycorax82 Oct 31 2013, 3:30pm
            The fact that they tried that psychic talk is a bit reassuring... xxxyyy Send a private message to xxxyyy Oct 31 2013, 3:36pm

                Agree, but I wonder if something else is behind this concept... QuackingTroll Send a private message to QuackingTroll Nov 1 2013, 3:29pm
                    I wonder if they wanted something real to model from AncalagontheBlack Send a private message to AncalagontheBlack Nov 1 2013, 3:52pm
                It's not impossible. Cillendor Send a private message to Cillendor Nov 1 2013, 6:16pm

                    I never said impossible. I don't believe either is impossible. I live in a universe where particles AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 2 2013, 1:00am
        Agreed. There is an enfeebling aspect about having to crawl/totter thus. AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Nov 1 2013, 12:06am
            On the other hand, it does invite some interesting possibilities regarding mobility... MatthewJer18 Send a private message to MatthewJer18 Nov 1 2013, 12:10am
