So i'm thinking about getting a turtle.  And possibly fish.  Any suggestions? 

At school we arn't allowed to have "real" pets.  I'm not even sure the turle is "legal"...but i'll sneak one in if I have to... ;D
Get those mini turtles from chinatown

Keep Breed Mixing, and this Maine Coon Cat will be the last of it's kind. /\

I just found out that turtles ARE illegal at school. 

Did you guys know that turtles can get you sick?  And they can get sick themselves?  TURTLES!  You would never guess...

Oh, yeah! Due to four of the six people in my family having pretty bad allergies, we can't have any animals with fur in the house.

We've looked at having turtles, but you're right...the danger of salmonella is present.

We've had fish, and they're better than nothing. Just stay away from putting a small crab in the aquarium....trust me, if your crab is anything like Morgoth, you will regret it!

do I even want to know who Margoth is?  If its a movie or comic or anything "pop-culture" related then I have NO idea. 

I love fish.  I think i'm going to invest in some...although i've never been too good with taking care of myself, so i'm not sure how long the fish will last. 

I'm also super forgetful...they wouldn't last a week.   ;D

It's Super Tolkien Geek to the Rescue!!!!  ;)

Morgoth is from the works of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, scholar and author of "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings",  "The Silmarillion", "Smith of Wooton Major", "Farmer Giles of Ham", "Beowulf, the Monster and the Critics" and more.  Professor Tolkien also contributed to the Jerusalem Bible translation, particularly the Book of Jonah. 

Morgoth is basically like a fallen archangel in the cosmology of Tolkien's "Middle Earth". He is part of the "Silmarillion" and the first part of that book the "Ainulindale" or "Music of the Ainur" tells of his jealousy and desire for power.

Eru Illuvatar is God in that universe. He creates the Ainur, beings like angels who come together as part of the music that God has devised to create the heavens and the earth.  There are 2 ranks, as it were, of the Ainur: the Valar are the greater and the Maiar are lesser in scope or power who help them. Morgoth was once one of the most powerful of the Valar (there is a parallel with Lucifer here). Morgoth's name was first "Melkor" but after his doing much evil he was given the epithet of "Morgoth" or the Dark Enemy by the Eldar or Elves who had suffered greatly from his temptations and malice.

After much destruction and evil, Melkor is finally taken prisoner by the other Valar and removed from the circles of the world. Unfortunately, he had maia who helped or wanted the same control of other beings and power. One of them went on to be called Sauron the Dark Lord who did such deeds as cause the drowning of Numenor, the forging of the Rings of Power, and much evil in Middle Earth which is told in "The Lord of the Rings".

Be warned, I could go on on matters Tolkien for quite some time.  ;D

No, no, that's not your representation at all!  Recall that Denethor was not the one who got the beacons going.  That was due to the urging of an angelic messenger, as it were, in the person of Gandalf/Olorin the Maia.  ;)

Ebor,

Thanks for the explanation!  Actually it was REALLY intresting.  Can you give me more info? 

Certainly!  What would you like to know or discuss?  I'm afraid that I can go on for a very long time about such things... with references too!! 

Reading the "Ainulindale" makes it very clear that there is only one God. The Valar while mighty are lesser beings who serve Him while caring for various parts of creation, much like angels.

Quote
I should probobly just read the books huh...again...too lazy!  haha. 

Well, there's a starting point.  Which of the books have you read?  The cosmology comes from the "Silmarillion" as well as some other volumes of notes that the Professor's son, Christopher edited (the History of Middle Earth" series that starts with "The Book of Lost Tales" in two volumes) and "Unfinished Tales" and a book of letters and more.

Quote

Good idea!  Maybe we can "Tolkien" it up over 100 pages.   ;D

Can you go into the cosmology more?  That was really interesting.  I was kind of disapointed when you stopped... ;D

I've only read the "popular" books by Tolkien.  The Felowship of the Ring...those 3 books.  That's it.  And "The Hobit" but that sucked, and it was a long time ago when I read it. 

Hey did you ever read anything from David Eddings? 

p.s.  I was always a fan of elves...if you got more info on how they fit into the whole Tolkien picture, I would appreciate that!

Well, I have to rule out any Elf names, since I'm strictly heterosexual...(joking; that's an inside joke among some friends here)

Well, how about Radagast the Brown? He seems to have been a solitary sort that was easily manipulated by those in power over him. Plus, Radagast can be conjectured to have a meaning in both Old English as well as Slavic, which is strangely appropriate for my current role.

Ah, but do you really want to be Radagast?  Recall that he was used and fooled by Saruman (who didn't think much of him either).  Maia he may have been, but not  the sharpest of them, maybe.

I have read some, though not all of Eddings work. I want to read "Polgara the Sorceress" since "Aunt Pol" is right there in the beginning with the Belgariad.

Now that we're back, it was you that wanted to discuss more of the Cosmology of Middle Earth. Is there anything in particular that you would like to start with?

I agree, he has been masterful.  I have not yet seen "King Kong" but have read that his mo-cap work including facial expressions and his study of how gorillas move and interact really made Kong come to life.

That's terrific!  I'll have to tell my kids about that.  "Lord of the Beans" was very nicely done (and had a excruciating joke in the "Silly Song" :D.   There are some wonderful riffs and take-offs of the LotR movies.  Who'd have thought that a scallion in a beard could so resemble Christopher Lee?  ;)

Ah, but as I had pointed out, I also am manipulated easily by others and something of a solitary sort. Those in authority tend to think not too highly of me, while those who are ruled tend to think better of me. Therefore, Radagast would be perhaps a better character for me...

The name Radagast may also be related to Old English. The word gast means "ghost, spirit, angel." The element rad could be derived from the word gerád meaning "wise" or possibly from rudu meaning "ruddy, reddish."

There was also said to be a Slavic god named Radagast who was the god of travellers and the patron of hospitality. His name was from the Old Slavonic raditi meaning "take care, look after, consider" and gost meaning "guest, stranger, foreigner."

Not too bad for someone whose patron is St. Christopher, and given this saint's association among those of the West, eh?

No! I haven't! Would you happen to have a link? 

I'm trying to get my kid and her insane friend to do a nice little movie or something with her sporks, but she seems strangely apalled that her mother would be interested in something like that...teenagers, go figure!

I think it sounds great to make a sporks movie..."Cookie man say "No!"  ;D :D

Here's the link:

And from the Watley Review, an on-line humour paper of a rather subtle and dry sort (well I like it)

"U.S. Says Diplomacy, Not War, Answer to Mordor's WMD"

While looking for the link to the Astronomy Picture of the Day from a while back of Fomalhaut up close so that it looks like the Great Eye,
http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap050701.html

I discovered that there is a spectrograph for use in astronomy:  "SAURON: A New Integral-Field Spectrograph"

Nice.
