Gyrfalcon: Good thing it wasn't a giant pretzel. Those things can be mean.


Wow. That's awesome. Goodgulf and Frito Bugger applaud.

djslowdive: It is by will alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of Sapho that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, stains become a warning. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion


Back in college, I once walked into a classroom with a cup of coffee and recited,

"By caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. By the beans of java do thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning. By caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. *sluuurrrrrrrrp* By caffeine alone I set my mind in motion." etc

I wish I could take credit for the line itself, but no. I think I first saw it in the scary devil monastery.

Whoa. Now there's a good memory.

54 comments in and everyone got the Dune references out from comment one, but no one mentioned Friday?

CoysOdie: What 244 lbs of Spice might look like.
Choose any two.

Baby, and Ginger. The others will be taken into consideration.

Asplenium: I thought the whole point of spice was that it wasn't illegal.


I haven't read all the comments yet and apologize in advance if someone else has already answered this. They passed a law making it illegal because it is a synthetic cannabinoid.

Great Porn Dragon: StoPPeRmobile: When did they make that illegal?

A surprising number of places (Kentucky among them) have made "spice" and pretty much anything marketed as a "marijuana substitute" flatly illegal in the past few months or so. And yes, Mississippi was one of the first states (if not the first state) to explicitly ban "spice" and other non-scheduled cannabinoids.


You can only ban specific chemical compounds. Any other description is unconstitutionally vague.

I doubt these people had any chemical compound that was prohibited.

These people will be out real soon, although they will lose their car to the evil that is forfeiture law. That is probably why they were arrested.

Endrick: ThatBillmanGuy: That's one thing I never understood too clearly. How does a spice fold space? Do you sprinkle some outside the ship? Mix it in a bowl in the engine room?

Spice grants prescience, it allows the navigator to see all possibilities, including the remote possibility that they instantly transport where they want to go, and allows them to follow that line.


It's the Holtzman engines that actually do the fold-space. Norma Cenva invented them before she became the first navigator.

The navigators use the spice to mutate into something else, which enables the extra level of prescience to guide the ships.

They don't mutate, it just expands their consciousness so that they can see all possibilities and take the ship down the possibility that results in it teleporting to where they want to go.

I seem to recall reading that the deep spice emersion changed the Navigator's form so that they barely looked human anymore. It's been a while since I read it though.

Yellow Beard: will they have to spend the rest of their lives in a pain amplifier?


They already live in Mississippi.
