Well, I also read the Silmarillion or however it's spelled a while ago, some odd years, and I kinda kept up with that. My memory can be terrible though.

Quite fail in other things too
like most dwarves lacking beards. Kind of a MASSIVE thing in Tolkien's universe.

And where are the dwarven women and THEIR beards?

I've had it on good authority that they do, in fact, have beards, but I suppose it's not THAT good an authority.

I liked the added pieces, because you get to see like, what Gandalf was doing when he would disappear and stuff. I didn't like the things he added that were wrong though.

YES! THE LACK OF BEARD, GODDAMN. Some of them look so retarded. Plus, I thought the orcs looked lame. Too cgi
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

After seeing Sonic Team saying they had no uses for Nack along with Bean or Bark, I looked into their stories to see if they actually were in the comics. Now seeing they were, I sort of want to read the Sonic comics now...

Is this a good or a bad thing?

I liked balin's subtle focus (no beard tho :c) as if trying to endear us to him only to yank the chain by reminding us about moria in lotr

Ya, that was good. Balin does have a beard, though.

Bombur's mustache was the greatest mustache to ever grace the big screen.

Stock work, and cashiering.

I have to lift 45+ pallets and put them on shelves and crap. My back is killing me, but it's a workout I'm getting paid for...so yay!

You have to lift them yourself?! Damn. We have machines for that. Are they not a chain store that can supply that?

I had a friend's brother who was working night crew who would be often the one pushing himself stocking and lifting and such use one of those. Mainly because after years of working where I do doing that it messes up your back pretty bad. If you're not planning on staying there long, good. It's not something you want to spend years doing. If you are though... don't. Just don't. You'll mess yourself up sooner or later.
