I find the beginning very compelling. You might not believe that yet, but I assure you it’s true." Perhaps this is a bit too much? Especially with the author's hinted doubts/pleas in the later paragraph? Something about the way they bounce off of each other breaks the flow of the introduction, ...

It's not really very James Bond-like. The reason I would nominate it has to do with the existance of an alternate world, rather than the existance of just a secret society. I would suggest that LFN is different to James Bond because James Bond lives in the real world, a world of politics and scandal...

Well, for once, NZ isn't that far behind on a Tv show...It happens so very rarely. I never got into Lost, but felt I didn't miss very much. I suppose depending on one's internet or Sci Fi club for episodes eliminates some of the problems of depending on networks...not all of them though. Generally y...

I fully can't believe that...despite her faults, I like Martha! Has anyone been able to find much old Dr Who on the web? I've been searching around the city for rentals, but am only finding scattered bits...and my Sci Fi club only has one season of Baker, and the new stuff. I'm sick of missing jokes...

Sorry Bmat, but like I said, I'm not a native...I don't know very much at all. :oops:

In terms of branding though, I am planning my own tattoo...I just want to get the design just right before I go through with it.

It's also gonna cost like $300 at least, I'm sure :S

Maoris have a very interesting culture...unfortunately, I don't know very much about it because I'm not a native. However, the tattoos aren't just tattoos. They are very important in Maori culture, and amung other things, signify respect to their ancestors. They also signify a lot about the person: ...

Very true. I think those sorts of stories came up in hopes to correct the idea of royal corruption.

That would be interesting...having the descendent UNDO the work that his ancestor (sp?) had done. I haven't seen a book like that in a while...
