I have met people like you, who must be right at all costs. It is typical for someone such as yourself, when your belief structure is challenged, to lash out, and to latch onto any little mistake, however remotely related (such as my not catching the write vs. right) as your life raft so you can dismiss me as being unequal to you. By doing this you save face to yourself.
Unfortunately, it does not change the fact that you have not rebutted my argument with any other facts, other than it is in a later book.
Aw, is Pestie getting perturbed? You could always just go away again? (Was it really 32 days? I guess YOU were counting?
Darlin, when you post something WORTH rebutting, I'll be on it. Otherwise you're just farting out your facial anus like Kevin. (Come on, admit it, he's "feedin" you, right? You're not bright enough to come up with even this shit on your own.
Here's the way it is: the whole "waterworm" arc was just more of KJA's specialty, FLASH & WOW. ("Hey, Brian, wouldn't it be kewl if we made ... sandworms that SWIM IN WATER?!!!1") The only in-story result was this purported "Ultra-spice", which was of no value except in putting Baddy Paolo into an Ultra-Trance. Making the seaworms (and sandworms) produce spice internally was the only way to get around the fact that a spice cycle could not exist in an aquatic environment: the chemistry JUST WOULD NOT WORK.
So this question of whether sandtrout come from sandworms (yes, they do under special conditions
) is just more obfuscation. The main point is that SANDWORMS DO NOT PRODUCE THE SPICE, and that is the MAJOR INCONSISTENCY that KJA had to introduce for this whole bullshit book to work.
Now you go ahead and flail and wail about genetics and changing the DNA of vectors of given lifeforms and blah blah blah all you want. The real issue is clear and on that issue both you and your hero FAIL.
Now kindly FUCK OFF.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA
I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA
I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA
