Thread: Orcs are ignorant
Does your name have a meaning btw?
Orcs and ignorance. True, there was a shortage of Orc academys and universities in Mordor. But I think it goes a bit deeper than that. I feel that Orcs were also brainwashed by their master and whatever religion they followed (cult of Morgoth?).
Brainwashing is pretty much a routine procedure for dictatorships (see: George Orwell 1984 for example) and Sauron was no exception. He made them believe they hated things like music and nature, that emotions like pity were a weakness and that pleasure can be derived only from the suffering of others.
Orcs are a pitiable creatures who hate the elves primarily out of fear. Elves did hunt and kill them after all! Probably for reasons the orcs couldn't fully understand.
Should elves hate or pity orcs? I can never really make up my mind...
I am one of Elrond's many hangers-on at Rivendel. I am orphaned, and he took pity on me and let me live there. He is such a sucker for a sob-story! : )
Such a nice guy really. Nothing at all like the HW Elrond, but dont get me started.....
Pity them? Why take the fun away? The only reason I kill them at two hundred paces is I can't stand the stink!
Uruks? I wouldn't feed them to my chetmigs....
Maybe we should finish of the orcs by killing the source( ie Saruman and Sauron). I mean the Uruk-Hai are starting to annoy me.
Well my elfy friend, everyone knows orcs are harder to kill than a rabid grizzly bear on steroids, so I wouldn't even bother to try if I was you. Killing the source would probaly confuse 'em for a while, but unfortunatly theres always another source to replace the source that you killed...damn sources ...actualy the orcs are probaly being led by one of my collage tutors, Phill. Damn that guy is scary.
As for the Uruk-Hai, well, we're not all bad

And if its poking you with a pointy stick and yelling "Your father was a hamster and your mother smelt of elderberrys" then its probaly ME!
I'm sorry, I know their evil, but I'm on the Orcs (and the rabid hobbits) side...but only cause they look like my cat Sooty (Damn he was one ugly moggy!)
Acctualy Orcs arn't toilets. Its pretty easy to tell the difference. If its standing still, has a lid and ahas a roll of toilet paper next to it then its definetly a toilet
Then again I could be wrong. It might be a really smart Orc thats dressed up as a toilet!

But no one is dissing being a dum dum. I've known some dum dum elves in my time....
On the other hand, he could be just very highly strung.
The smarter elves consist of myself , (for staying out of trouble for so long) Galadriel (for putting up with the nonsence her hubby came out with and therefore making herself look better) Elrond(for getting everyone else to do his dirty work for him) and Arwen (for usurping Glorfindel in recieving the movie rights)
well anyway, Do I have a point? Not sure.....hmm...well ok thats it!
Cirdan, I thought your examples were hilarious.

Orcs aren't bad shot's they managed to kill Isildur!
Question: When swimming away from Orcs wearing your working armor, how hard is it to keep off the bottom of the river, lake, or sea. I always figured that anyone who jumped in the water to get away, while wearing armor to be quite stupid. Chain mail and a plate hauberk should counteract any tendency of a body to float, not to mention their sword and helm.
orcs aint stupid theye r merley missunderstud theye luve to reed and philososize and at tymes will do stuf that hass to do with sceince clearly Hallavasione u are egregoiusly unninformed and as a fynal parthian shot i will aske yu how many orcs have yu knew jus as i thunk none
Oh, and Prog, I think my 4th grade teacher, as well as my 8th grade science teacher were both orcs. Well, are there female orcs?

Well, are there female orcs?
Besides, where do the little orcs come from? I'm sure no self-respecting stork would deliver them to the daddy orcs.
ill find out and post with the results of my research
And orcs are all equally ugly, i think all orcs are swinging blades, even the ladies.
