Heyy guys! =] Ace is back! I haven't been around for a long while, just been consumed with life, lately. Anywayszs, I read about this somewhere and have been left wondering, there wasn't much input on it online: What is the difference between a unicorn and an alicorn? I heard from a source that alicorns can supposedly fly but unicorns can't. Anyone have any facts they wanna lay down?

*Waves* Hey y'all, by the way! ;D Am I not the only who is captivated by these beautiful creatures?

I thought the alicorn was what the unicorns horn was called after it was chopped off. It is similar to a magic wand or talisman.

That is if unicorns existed. hmm.gif

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Here I found this it might be helpful on the Alicorn Topic!
The Alicorn

I remember the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says: "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another." - J. Robert Oppenheimer.

That was the first thing came to my mind too!
Although I like the thought of unicorns being real.

Alicorn sounds like a unicorn with a gator sticking out of its head!

I wouldn't bet on them.

What is the difference between a unicorn and an alicorn? I heard from a source that alicorns can supposedly fly but unicorns can't. Anyone have any facts they wanna lay down?

the alicorn is the spiraled horn of the unicorn... a unicorn is a legendary creature with the body of a horse, but with a single — usually spiral — horn growing out of its forehead (whence its name—cornus being Latin for 'horn')... Relics ornamented with supposed unicorn horns can be found in museums in Vienna and elsewhere in central Europe. However, these horns are in fact the spiral tusks of the narwhal, an Arctic cetacean...
