Other Uses For The Prequels/Sequels

Postby HoosierDaddy » 29 Apr 2008 17:20

Thankfully I don't have a problem since I don't own any of those things, but I thought I'd start a thread for any of you that might have one or two.

Not to say that they're that embarrassing to have on a book shelf, but they could serve a better purpose in another capacity. There are a few ideas on the Amazon.com web site under "product tags" for Sadworms Of Dune ("door stop", "kindling", "dunnage material", etc), and I'm thinking there are more creative ideas. Chigger had an idea in another thread, taking images or video of such ideas.

Any thoughts?

I dont even want to be questioned about them, so other than Dreamer of Dune, they are all gone and sold.

Ah...I knew there was something missing in this forum: a thread like this! :D

I considered lugging them to class and beaning students with them if they fell asleep or answered incorrectly...but then I realized that even the paperbacks are substantial (in a purely mass sense) to actually kill someone, so I gave up on it. :(

I suppose you could keep them by your bed to throw at home invaders?

And of course there's keeping them on hand in the toilet, for emergencies. :D
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

Wouldn't wiping your ass with crap defeat the purpose of wiping it in the first place? :?
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

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

If you shred them you can feed them to earthworms, along with some cow manure.
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

Being a fan of the sport of Curling, this idea might work. It would take some serious effort, soaking the books in epoxy, wood glue, and stain/varnish, but something like this:

My son uses them as coloring books. I have not gotten rid of them...yet..
They are right there at his level where he can pull them down and do with them as he pleases. It is quite enjoyable to watch the shit be smeared with lovely colors!

They would definitely have to be soaked in something for a while, but I really like this idea. The thought of people pissing on the BH/KA books, fans and non-fans, has a special allure to me.

We need to immortalize this in a picture. I'm on it.

Any over/under on when Freak gets his first "cease and desist" e-mail from Byron (like Byron can do anything about it)?

The Prequels are probably quite good for scratching piles.

I would worry about infection. If I had piles, mind you.
