White teeth.


Nice work, I was starting to think no-one would find it. :D Milky teeth according to the passage I got it from anyways (only passage I recall mentioning it)

Where'd you find it, or was that from memory?


Memory.



Impressive.


I actually remembered the scene where Gurney and Paul are reuinted and the smuggler spice factory commander was described as having blue eyes and milky teeth of a spice diet.

Here's a quick, easy question...

What is Leto II's sensititvity to smells emitted by humans?


he can identify pheromones three parts per million (dammit! I wasn't going to play this time, but I just read that yesterday!)

Bump. Shamelessly Bump.

Codewords in dune. I know there are dozens but i cant seem to remember many off the top of my head. See how many you can get from memory and post your others, any race will do:

- What is word which will stop Feyd Rautha's muscles because he has been conditioned to it?

- What word means "prepare for violence" and is used to warn paul during the banquetting scene?

and to bump the trivia thread once more:

What is the literal translation of "Harq - al - ada"?

Wow. The code word for "prepare for violence" was "garment".

That was the only one I knew off the top of my head, and I had
to check to be sure before posting.

I absolutely cannot believe I remembered that, but I read the question
and there it was, floating up into my mind. Crazy. My short term
memories been shot for awhile (ya'll remember my story about the
voice recorder)(I'm still recording messages and forgetting I recorded
a message, or forgetting to listen to the messages)) But my long term
memory seems to be fine.

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

"Uroshnor"

"Garment." (that took a while to type. I was recovering from the above question. My muscles got all twitchy.)

and to bump the trivia thread once more:

"The Breaking of the Habit."



Okay, my turn:
- What were Jamis's sons' names?

- name 3 red-headed characters from the original Dune novels.

- what character from DUNE 1 had metal teeth?
I don't recommend anyone drink their thigh pad water. It tastes really bad, like ass and dirt.

Who killed the last "official" Corrino?

(official being of Shaddam descent or non-Ferradin/Ghani descent, outside of LetoII's breeding program)
The Duncan in GEoD!
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.
