This caught my attention as well. Especially since it is often mentioned by Frank that those winds could tear flesh from bones. But that's of no importance for KJA/BH, naturally. Remember how Kynes in House Corrino
longed to "stand naked in the biting wind" and "wallow in the sand dunes" to feel "cleansed" from the filthiness of Shaddam's court? This is where I laughed really loud, picturing this nonsense (especially the part when Kynes happily rolls on a dune slope naked, then a Fremen comes and crysknives him for leaving the sietch without a stillsuit
), then just stopped reading. It's hopeless.
