RJ - Slayer of Trolls (hawk5391yahoocom) Aww... I wanted a cephalopod for Christmas and I got one! Thanks Santa!

I liked this one quite a bit. So creative, funny, sad, smart. All the good things!

Mickey | 589 comments Hmmm, since I am allergic to shellfish and cephalopods, then cephalopods would be off my list of things to consume. Therefore cephalopods would certainly survive till the end of the universe. Venison on the other hand can be very tasty, though a bit gamey.

Plant life would be the first to disappear in the universe as the ruler of entropy.

Ho ho ho, those Porgs truly look delicious. I heard they taste like chicken. But then that’s a different show.

I think it makes a story out of "No one dies that is remembered"

E.J. Randolph (canyonelf) | 151 comments Exactly


Esther (eshchory) | 82 comments Finally got round to this one - not really my kind of thing.
