A body part is what I'm looking for (anatomy).

Jeez, that's so fucking easy, guys. They have a longer long intestine(if that's the name of it in English) so they supposedly collect more water out of their food.

And yes, that's without looking at the PDF's.

The quote you might bring along would be mentioning Chaney's especially long intestine which the twins(?) inherited(methinks the passage talks about Leto II having it, so it would be in CoD).
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

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

The cold-line at the base of the dune where Leto crouched began to produce
its nightly moisture. He tasted the fragile dampness in his nostrils, adjusted
the bubble cap of the membrane over his mouth. There no longer was any need for
him to find soaks and sip-wells. From his mother's genes he had that longer,
larger Fremen large intestine
to take back water from everything which came its
way. The living stillsuit grasped and retained every bit of moisture it
encountered. And even while he sat here the membrane which touched sand extruded
pseudopod-cilia to hunt for bits of energy which it could store.

Meh, it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw your question...so easy. :roll:

Paul was born on Calaitain.

It's that "compromise" thing some board member mentioned somewhere :)

Metaphysical sex! Norma-lly that sort of thing would interest me, but...

I guess it's still better than a metasex physical. :shock:

Cinnamon-scented farts that burn green?

A thirst for fresh blood and strong dislike for bright lights? (No, wait, that's a vampire bite.)

Premature ejacuOH I KNOW!

Death if you can't get it. :D

Or would you accept some sensitivity to prediction?

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?
