But I wouldn't call Chapterhouse a no-planet, it was surrounded by a mote of no-ships, it wasn't surrounded by one giant no-field.


No I didn't think Chapterhouse was a no-planet that would be silly, But I did think that it could have been the plant where they contemplated carrying out the procedure. But I was wrong, oh btw does anyone know what class Chapterhouses sun is (He says trying to scrap a half point(my first ever))?

Which one?

The older one named Ta'am or the younger one named Sebastion that no one talks about? (Black sheep, wink wink.)

The middle one named Joe was the answer I was looking for.

you said you have a dune question that freak wouldn't know. This would probably be an appropriate place to pose it :P


Yeah, let's see it.

Yeah, let's see it.

It is actually an answered question by Freakzilla which I followed up, but Freak must have missed it.

and it was a while back, the answer has to be deduce because FH did not spelled out. I'll be back to edit this with a clearly (I hope) formulated question.
It has to do with Duncan idaho and that piece of info. which he received from Hawat or Yueh. I'm looking for it.

I do not remember. My short term memory fades (a side effect since I felt from my crib, head first unto a granite floor when I was 9 months old) often. It's not what you think.

For some reason, how Duncan got the message from Yueh was important to me.
How did Duncan Idaho got the message from Dr. Yueh to go to an exact place and wait and where was Duncan when he received this message?

How the message was given, is what I was looking for.


I believe someone said Duncan was in the palace when he got the message?

How the message was given?
When was the message sent? How much earlier before the Harkonnen raid was the message given?
Did the message mentioned the Dukal Heir and concubine, The Lady Jessica?
I think there is no answer given in the book.

If it's not in the book, it's not Dune trivia. That's ridiculous.

As Phaedrus said, I can't answer you if it's not in the book. I don't make things up to fill in the blanks like Pinky & the Brian. I could only guess.

So I guess everyone knows where Hawat, Yueh, and Duncan were during the raid on the Great House.

In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

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

Not by form, but it might function as one, pragmatically, depending on the intonation. Which there is no indication of.

This, though, is a question:

How many "sietch idiots" (Fremen equivalent of "village ~") can Jacurutu support at one time?

Depends on what is considered the turn-over constant (Tc), commonly represented Arnoldo units.

How many Arnoldoes = 1 Fantômas?

Nope.

That would be a physiological difference if it were true though, wouldn't it?

I'm looking for a part of their body that is different.
