EchoMike: Obligatory "Tremors" reference.

Obligatory "Dune" reference.

Obligatory and obscure "Beetlejuice" reference.


Do I win?


Beetlejuice isn't obscure

I_C_Weener: Looks less Mongolian, and more Sicilian.

/GIS for Mongolian Death Worm.


I almost looks like Slimey from Sesame Street. All you need to do is get rid of the teeth and add stripes to its body.

/checks profile... how you doin'?

tardigrade: A caecilian, perhaps?

/ Believe it or not, this is an amphibian. They have cute little faces!


That expedition will fall victim to both of the classic blunders.

The most famous is: never get involved in a snipe hunt in Asia; but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a caecilian when death is on the line!

HA HA HA HA HA HA H-

Is that the inspiration for the Sarlacc thingie in Star Wars? Or did Lucas pray at the altar of Frank Herbert?

Please don't let George Lucas rape the Sand Worm in Star Wars. He has raped enough characters from that movie along with the Indiana Jones movies.

arguelles:
This maybe a stupid question, but would it be possible for it to generate static electricity while moving through the sand? I've seen arcs jump about an inch just from playing on a trampoline then getting close to the springs.

But how are you going to generate a charge and not have it bleed away?



I have no idea. Maybe a long time ago one of these things shocked somebody, or they saw a spark, and over time the story of the electro-butt cannon came about.

The electric eel has evolved to live in the Gobi desert. I want to believe.

johnphantom: Occulto: destrip: "If a Mongolian says they have seen a big worm-like creature out in the desert they haven't really got any reason to lie," he said.

Neither did those ever-intelligent Middle Easterners, who two millenia ago spun a story that was outrageous at face value, yet so compelling that billions around the world still go to opulent buildings dedicated to the story each week and fork over untold sums of money in the name of one or another of the main characters.

/hallelujah, shalom, allah akbar, cha-ching!
//isn't it ironic that the main Christian figure threw the money changers OUT of the church?

*yawn*

There's a thread about a worm that shoots lightning from it's butt, and the best you can contribute is a limp wristed dig at religion?

Give him a break, he is just showing how gullible people are by comparing fairy tales.


Oddly those same people brought us the Scientific method, The Concept of Zero, and preserved Greek history and mathematics.

Isn't it just ludicrous that people can be religious and logical at the same time.

zarberg: Any of the D&D geeks on here ever play Living Greyhawk? This thread is reminding me of the core adventure that sent you all over the place through portals and various planes, and you ended up fighting a few Remorhaz at some point. It was year 3 or 4 in the campaign.



/hot like those things on their back.


We need to play D&D sometime...

The Arabic numeral system as we know it (including the decimal system and the concept of zero) was "borrowed" from India, so were a lot of hypothesis in physics and astronomy. The Greek and Indian sytems evolved in parallel, with little knowledge of existence of the other.

New Zealand journalist David Farrier, who is organising the expedition, and cameraman Christie Douglas, leave this week to spend two weeks in the Gobi, trying to verify the worm's existence and making a documentary about it.

I think that 2 weeks is plenty of time for her to try to verify the existence of his worm.

/Leaves ashamed.
