Chocolate covered mint gum. Mmmm that sounds good. Man, seriously, you should look and see if such a thing exists. That might actually sell.

Does masticating in public make you uncomfortable, RLaceykins?

No. The idea of chocolate-covered chewing gum does, though .

Masticating is perfectly acceptable.

Oh, and Chick: I forgive you, but don't do it again .

All this talk about masticating makes me want to grab my really big dictionary to check what it means.

*checks*

OK......I should have gotten it from the context....

It's one of those words that sound really dirty but actually aren't.

I find that masticating tends to ruin perfectly goos conversation opportunities. Not just when chewing gum, though. Also when you're eating a recently-purchased sandwich. It's hard enough to chew and talk simultaniously, but when the person you're talking to is trying to ignore the bolus in your mouth, and the small peices of sandwich which tend to fly out of one's mouth and stick to the other's face, well......

I bought my first Terry Pratchett book today.. I've wanted to read terry Pratchett for a long time now, especially since I'm very fond of humour sci-fi/fantasy books.

I bought the first book he made in the diskworld series; "The colour of Magic"

The Colour of Magic is the only Discworld novel I've read to completion .

Anyway, now that you've opened that particular can of worms I'm sure that tabacco and Chick and all the others will pitch in. But they shouldn't, because this Thread™ should die. No, wait... this Thread™ must die!

After seeing so many people talking about Terry Pratchett on these forums I also have plans to read some Discworld book. I've recently bought the Discworld Noir game from e-bay and was wondering if I should read the books before I play it. Would it make a difference?


Btw, I'm going crazy on e-bay buying old games for almost nothing! Somebody stop me!

That's funny, I just ordered that too!

I have always been a sucker for Robert Lynn Asprin's Myth Adventures, Alan Dean Foster's Spellsinger series, and Terry Brooks Landover books. I do not have the slightest idea why I never read the DISCWORLD(That was for the Looney Empress) series

I didn't find that Noir had a particularly Discworldy feel about it, so reading the books wouldn't make a difference in my opinion.

I didn't really like that game anyway, I never finished it. The first two games are far better.

I might discourage you from quoting Jim carrey, but not from capitalism!

Buy Discworld 1 and II! (If you haven't already.)

There's a Discworld 1 for sale on e-bay. The current bid is £26. That's too expensive for me.

I haven't played Discworld Noir (yes, I know. Shame on me.), but the only difference reading the books first might make is that you *might* be able to comprehend the logic of the puzzles a little. Like the thing with the Quantum Weather butterfly (actually I think that "Interesting Times" was written after the first Discworld game was made. But I think that PTerry mentioned that concept of "If somewhere in the world, a butterfly beats its wings, it causes a storm to form, somewhere else in the world.". The Quantum Weather Butterfly is just the final form of that.). Or maybe not.

I do comprehend the logic somewhat. But then again, I'm a looney.

It would take quite some time to read all those books, though. And I believe Discworld Noir is not all that dependant on the books.

You haven't played Discworld Noir, Chick?

There is no excuse for this!

I haven't actually completed Discworld Noir. I got a fair bit in, got stuck, gave up for a while and never really found the interest again. Remind me to replay it some day.

The Butterfly Effect is an offshoot from Chaos Math isn't it?
