cycles can be postponed by the use of drugs(legal or not)
maybe spice has that effect too?
It might bring benefits but it is still addictive so it must have other common elements with the drugs we know(have heard of)in our present day.
Spice is the worm's gonads.

But it does come out clotted. Some of it is more liquid, but not all. You can't "let" it be anything, it is what it is. Unless I'm not getting what you're saying at all.


When I said "let" I meant that the author creates the world, so he can change things like that. All I was saying was that Fremen probably have some other adaptions for life on Arrakis. Just kicking ideas around. And not every woman's flow is clotted when it comes out. Some bleed thin, don't'cha know? :wink:

Maybe instead of a tube they'd have a big sort of sanitary towel, and when they take their stillsuit off in sietch, perhaps they had something to reclaim the moisture from the jamrag, like a deathstill.

Wales is a small country with unproportional town names, for example: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

I shit you not.

Ah, Wales. The trees, the grass, Sun and pylons.

No the Chigg speak with bifurcated mandible. it means The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave. But his does have a a nice ring to it.

Oh God, Wales! What can you say about the place, apart from the fact that it never stops raining? I roomed with a Welsh guy for a while in uni who taught me a few Welsh words. That place is usually just called LlanfairPG for short. All the road signs in Wales are written in English and Welsh, even though hardly anyone there can speak Welsh anymore. What a waste of (English people's) tax money.

I didn't even know Welsh was a seperate language, how do you end up with seperate languages on such a bloody tiny island? I think my mom's side of the family traces back to Wales...

I thought of that too, but with how often they have babies, that doesn't seem likely.

Lol is that your Sarah Palin impression? :lol: From what I've read, if you have a thinner flow your periods are usually longer. Has to be impossible for the Fremen unless they are taking a LOT of asprin. :lol:

The fact this is even addressed makes the fremen in me feel violated.

Well, please keep in mind that the person who started the thread was a teenage boy who from all indications isn't really playing with a full deck ... and is probably mostly playing with himself. ;)
