Of course, anyone with more than a passing familiarity with British food will be surprised to learn that spice hasn't actually been illegal for the last several hundred years

Smoking mixtures like 'Spice' become Class B substances - possession could earn you five years in prison.

Right, now everyone get back to drinking until you puke in the street...like proper Brits.

the music world would have benefited more if spice was outlawed in the '90s

The stuff is irritating police, who keep nicking ecstasy dealers only to find they have to be released because they've only got plant food

Right.. That's a good reason to make something illegal.

What exactly is wrong with recreational substances again?

anyone?

I may be biased, being a dune fan, but that is one really good headline.

oh, and this gem

It is one of a large number of so-called research chemicals which are quickly coming to mainstream attention after a long period of use by relatively small numbers of pyschonauts.

What really grinds my gears is that the movie doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that Chani is nothing but a concubine. I LOVE the last line of the book: History will call us wives

SSSH! Or the Honored Matres will insect whip-kick your head off (after they do you, of course).

Elton John is apparently a big fan. He had a song written long ago, but the marketing arm of the record company screwed it up. The original title was "Bene and the Gesserits"

Hmm? The new sci fi channel movie kinda referenced it.

KingKauff: I know the basics of the Dune series. Please tell...what are the Ghola tanks really?

Axlotl Tanks (new window) - "The Bene Gesserit suspected that the axlotl tanks were what remained of female Tleilaxu, since no Tleilaxu females had ever been seen."

So basically, the genetically engineered Tleilaxu turned their females into giant uterus tanks. Enjoy that thought.
