An history of statistics

Postby Leto » 29 Mar 2008 16:42

A day when Kevin was bored, he counted some words :mrgreen: :

The Father :
- DUNE = +/- 200.000 words.
- DUNE MESSIAH = 75.000 words,
- CHILDREN OF DUNE = 150.000 words
- GOD-EMPEROR OF DUNE = 140.000 words
- HERETICS OF DUNE = 165.000 words
- CHAPTERHOUSE DUNE = 143.000 words

The shitters:
- HOUSE ATREIDES = 205.000 words
- HOUSE HARKONNEN = 210.000 words
- HOUSE CORRINO = 180.000 words

- THE BUTLERIAN JIHAD = 190.000 words
- THE MACHINE CRUSADE = 240.000 words
- THE BATTLE OF CORRIN = 206.000 words

- HUNTERS OF DUNE = 147.000 words
- SANDWORMS OF DUNE = 144.000 words

And an assumption ...

- PAUL OF DUNE = +/- 150.000 words

Kevin and Brian are drowning (in term of quantity of course) the original cycle in their own inconsistencies...

Yes, they think quantity is superior to quality in literature.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

I do not know what's the more unacceptable : writing a kind of shit or behaving not as fans?
According to me, by acting against fan's works (as the spanish film or deleting systematically critics on their forum), they are proving they only work for money.
That's why they're guilty!

I think the behavior is a marketing nightmare to begin with...calling names (Talifan) your own customers !!! If McDonald's was calling vegetarians bullshiters... :shock:

But also the continuous way they keep justifying their work on and on...they're loosing credibility even more as individuals than their books... :x

That's it!
Mc Do' does not call people who they are while P&tB do call people who they aren't.
Guess what's the more profitable : Mc Do' or HLP :?:
