  1. Even in the modern world, the "age of consent" as it's called is 16 in many places, and people can get married at that age, though sometimes parent/guardian's permission is required. 18 is common, but is certainly not universal.
  2. It sounds more like she was instructing Moiraine and Siuan to lie, as in "[You will tell them] Gitara died without speaking", which works perfectly fine until such time as they take the Three Oaths upon being raised.
  3. Hey, Rob! Jon'atha / Da Masta here. Though, not so much "still here" as "here again", like a number of others. *laugh* I glanced at your MySpace. You still look like you, just a bit older than the ancient old pic of you I remember. *laugh* [NB: Yes, Raeyn, I know "ancient old" was a redundancy, but it seemed somehow literally appropriate... and, yes, I used "literally" in reference to literature, as opposed to the more common use referring to nonfigurativity, which has a 47% chance of being a real word.]
  4. Heh heh, you're not crazy, Mat. They won't open for me in Chrome, either.
  5. Yeah, Hopper's flying was a really good part, though Ingtar's attempt to atone for past mistakes didn't affect me as much. One of the most emotional points for me in the books is later on when Nynaeve manages a miraculous Healing (I won't spoil it here!). I teared up for the healed party in that one. It was just so awesome and moving, and it helped to right a devastating wrong.
  6. According to some circles, the end of the world comes in 2012. You might be on to something there, Kath! ;D
  7. Well, there's a difference between allowing someone the opportunity to misinterpret what one says (Aes Sedai bread and butter) and knowing they'll interpret a lie as truth ("The sky is red... [mumbling 'in some places at sunset']").
  8. I faintly remember reading about an Aes Sedai learning that they couldn't say anything that they knew would cause the other person to interpret a lie as the truth. This seems to me to preclude the possibility of speaking a lie aloud while mumbling something to oneself to turn it into a truth. If the Aes Sedai knew the words spoken aloud were a lie and that the other person would hear only those words and interpret them as truth, they wouldn't be able to do it.
  9. I used Chrome for a couple of hours myself, and it's definitely still a Beta. The speed is downright astonishing. However, the lack of click-scroll support irked me, too, and I'm used to having SO much more control over the browser than Google gives you in the tiny set of Options you're provided in this version. Problems with Beta 2 (v 0.2.149.27): - No click-scrolling! - No control over which sites are allowed to store permanent cookies on your computer. It's all or nothing. - No ability to create a computer shortcut to the page you're viewing. You have to copy the UR
  10. Right. Because of the cyclical nature of the Wheel of Time universe, the Dark One's prison will unequivocally be restored good as new, for the next Age of Legends to come by and drill into again. Unless the Dragon ends up somehow breaking the cycle a la Neo and the Matrix, but then it wouldn't be the Wheel of Time universe anymore, would it?
  11. Woooooooo! Congrats, Jase and Mrs.! Sounds like a healthy baby boy with a great name! And if you rearrange the first four letters of it, you get... ;D
  12. Excellent choices! Dr. Dwyn and Shamaeso, may your selfless service be ever appreciated and satisfying. *bows*
  13. I have only three tiny words: No... Uwe... Boll.
  14. Disclaimer: I have the utmost of friendly feelings for Barm, and I feel he will take this post for the fun little joke it's intended to be. 1. Why do you think you are qualified for this job? Qualifications? Bah! Okay, let's look at his qualifications. So... no-one too closely associated with the Red or Green Ajah. Barm bonded a Brown, right? Oh, I'm sure Barm is intimately familiar with Google Docs. Those are the Doctors who twang your Google once a year to make sure it still works, right? Excellent... repellent... it's only a couple of letters
