Thread: Lord of the Forums/RPF's thoughts

  1. #1

    Lord of the Forums/RPF's thoughts

    I liked the books and the movies. For those who never got into the books, there are differences. Anyway, after reading that LOTR is racist thread I got to thinking about the books and started thinking about which character I would be.

    I also got to thinking about what character some posters here would be. I see a lot of Boromirs and a few Wormtongues, too

    Who do you think you are in LOTR?

    I think I'm closest to Galadriel. I can block my mind off to the influence of others (just ask my teachers) and I know I couldn't handle the One Ring.




    Ron Paul is a hobbit - a ring bearer.

    No one's really playing my Lord of the Forums game so I have to label everyone. I've been rethinking you - maybe a Gandalf.

    I think Swordsmith is a Boromir.

    He has some pretty good quotes " I wish I was home in my nice hole by the fire " . I remember thinking something similar when I was in the Army , freezing , with no reprieve in sight . " Books ought to have good endings " , a view I share . " Not all those who wander are lost " . I spent a lot of time wandering , looking for things of value , knowing I was so close and was not lost yet hoped I appeared to be just a harmless , lost stranger to anyone who might be watching . You do not really want anyone to know when you score a gold nugget

    Don't feel bad, none of us could. Some could bear it for longer, but power corrupts everyone eventually. That is one of the main lessons of the story.


    As for who I am? I like to imagine myself more as Treebeard these days.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."
