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...

In Frodo's name, i don't think they wanna make people think that TLOTR is based on real events but they wanna show them that some ascepts that seem impossible are trully possible

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)

WAI! You mean elves aren't real? Damn... that means I don't exist.... But then it also means... (shuts her mouth before she pokes fun of the big boss Saruman.)And I swear my soon to be ex is an Orc. I mean only an orc would be as cruel hearted with his timing.
