One question. Ready?

Why! The! Fuck! Don't they then?


:lol:
An excellent question.

Can you imagine this tool, out on a day hike, wearing a backpack, muttering this bullshit into a dictaphone... "This would be something to speak of for generations to come... If only. IF ONLY." What an unbelievable douche.

Gotta love the Safety Dance. It's even got its own version of Bijaz:

This scene is from 'House Corrino'? - the last McDune book I read? - rather relieved to admit I have absolutely no recollection of this scene whatsoever, and rather little of the 'House' trilogy as a whole. Can vaguely remember the Ixians constructing heighliners...in vast underground grottoes, which struck me as bloody ludicrous - and that the three books had more typos than I'd ever seen in a series of books before - and that is about it. That's made my day :dance:

Surely you jest, sirrah! Not with Becky Moesta doing her awesome "close copy edits"!
