    Thoughts on Amazon green lighting the WoT TV Show

    If you want to see a Wheel of Time tv adaptation, subscribe and watch. If people take the whole, "I hate Amazon so I'm not subscribing" mindset, you can forget about dvd/blu-ray because it won't make it that far.

    Rand after the Last Battle

    What makes you think it was occurring as he carried Moridin out of the cave, and not while still inside? Are you basing that on what Nakomi said about that being what he must do (swap body)? Because if so, I took her comment to mean he's doing what he's suppose to do with carrying the other body out.

    Wheel of Time Companion previews

    How often are they doing the previews? Does anyone know?
  6. Ah ok, you're both right. I guess just at that time of reading it it just seemed so unusual. But after thinking of it like that, it's not really all that surprising.
  7. I know, but to be able to throw a knife like that so accurately without having experience just seemed a little weird. I'm probably just looking way too far into it, but when I read it for the first time it threw me off a bit.
  8. Did anyone find it strange that Moridin killed Alanna by throwing a knife at her? It just seemed... Un-Moridinish to me, considering that he's a philosopher who just happens to be an extremely strong channeler. He's never been a soldier or anything relating to combat, as far as we know.

    WoT If… Perrin Was the Dragon?

    Which book is that quote from?
  11. To add on to this, he also confirmed that Nakomi's power in ToM was a power already established in the series. It wasn't some new element used to present a mysterious character. He wouldn't directly answer my question of whether or not Nakomi's power depended on whether or not Aviendha was asleep but just said her power was an established concept.
  12. There was so much going on that I doubt they even thought about a guard for Moridin's body. Here's the thing. If we assume that Rand was still in his own body when he left the cave, then it can almost be presumed that Moridin was in even worse shape since Rand had to carry him out. With Rand dying (his body), there wouldn't be much thought to watching over Moridin's body at first because he was in bad enough shape to begin with when Rand carried him out.
  13. Because it's proven to be good for business? The amount of faulty assumptions made in this thread are shocking at times. http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2013/04/17/walmart-pays-workers-poorly-and-sinks-while-costco-pays-workers-well-and-sails-proof-that-you-get-what-you-pay-for/ http://m.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2013/03/the-trader-joes-lesson-how-to-pay-a-living-wage-and-still-make-money-in-retail/274322/ Also Wandering you do realize they specifically limit most employees to part time work correct? Hence your numbers do not work. This is just sad. Wandering is correct. Why should people who earn what they do be forced to provide for those who don't? Charity is one thing, welfare/free hand outs is another. People need to live within their means and if they want better, do what you can to make yourself better. Get another job, spend less money, etc etc. For some people, stop having kids. People nowadays think they can have 6-7 kids and then get pissed when they can't provide for them so they expect to live off the government. That is ridiculous. There are plenty of institutions set up to help people who are legitimately trying to make themselves better and those are worth it. However, too many people go out and waste their money on irrelevant items that they don't need and then bitch that the rich need to pay more to the government so they can be supported. How is that fair?
