Meh. Thats no so big. That extinct raven is at least twice as large... Besides...do we really want to encourage the Tolkienites and feed their desperate little reality where they think that LOTR is based on actual events? They've already discovered retarded pygmies that they think are Hobbits...

Like fire demons, elves and orcs? 435826[/snapback] Sure, why not? The Balrog is someone with Pyrokinesis, the elves are monks that have learned to be immortal and the orcs are the pure evil in this world ( i mean teachers with that)
