But now that I looked it up...
they took it in turn to carry him on their backs.
It actually only mentions specifically that...
"Why, O why did I ever leave my hobbit hole!" said poor Mr. Baggins bumping up and down on Bomber's back.
Quite suddenly Dori, now at the back again carrying Bilbo, was grabbed...
So we are both right. I would actually assume that all of the dwarves carried bilbo. Tolkien made it seem like a long chase out of the mountain.
Which King under the Mountain fell with King Brand of Dale in the War of the Ring
I meant to award one Pseudo-Silmaril each to Lemaly orangeflower and Caudimordax, for as I've said before, they quickly sublimate to gas. I suppose the gas could be bottled and shared, but there ain't much glory to be gained from a bottle of worthless amorphic gas; and bottles don't grow on trees in the real world. So I felt it was better to award two jewels so you would each have one of your own.
What island lay near the mouth of the River Anduin
So we each get one and I get another Hurrah. Oops It melted. I guess Pseudo Simarils are like m&m's
Oops It melted. I guess Pseudo Simarils are like m&m's
Maybe so, but I'm only aware of M&Ms melting in the mouth. So the question is, what have you been doing with your Pseudo Silmarils?
No, the Pseudo-Silmarils don't melt they sublimate, which means they go from solid to gaseous state directly bypassing the liquid state, just as ice cubes do in your freezer if you leave them long enough. Or have I used the wrong word here?

I just copied it so I think some of it got messed up.
But you're right, Grondy. I had learned that or thought I learned it in last years physics class...but I don't apply my knowledge in the summer.
So they kinda melted.
In reference to LA86's question, I have been running tests on the PsuedoSimirals to discover their Sublimation Point, so I can build a freezer to keep them in solid state. But because they melt so fast and because their Sublimation Point is lower than I expected, I can't find their Sublimation Point. But, If I decrease the pressure, the sublimation point will raise as it does with most objects.
...but I don't apply my knowledge in the summer.
or isn't that sindarin
When the Elves awoke, what were the first things they beheld and the first sounds they heard
I think they saw and heard the lake first.
By the starlit mere of Cuiviénen, Water of Awakening, they rose from the sleep of Ilúvatar; and while they dwelt yet silent by Cuiviénen their eyes beheld first of all things the stars of heaven. Therefore they have ever loved the starlight, and have revered Varda Elentári above all the Valar.
Many waters flowed down thither from heights in the east, and the first sound that was heard by the Elves was the sound of water flowing, and the sound of water falling over stone.
How did Sam locate Frodo in the Tower of Cirith Ungol
How did Sam locate Frodo in the Tower of Cirith Ungol?
With the use of Night-Vision goggles.
Sam found a ladder apparantly going up to nowhere in the highest room of the Tower. Then it dawned of him, that the room might not exactly be the highest room of the Tower. So up, up he went (courtesy the ladder) and found himself in another room in which Frodo was lying naked as if he were sunbathing in the gardens of the Shire.
but, the water over the rocks had to come from SOMEWHERE, right? And where else but Cuivinen on its journey to the sea?
In what chamber did the Fellowship find Balin's Tomb
To correct the spelling it was the Chamber of Mazarbul or the Chamber of Records.
On which mountain, and in which tower, were the halls of Manwë and Varda
Their halls are above the everlasting snow, upon Oiolosse, the uttermost tower of Taniquetil, tallest of all the mountains upon Earth.
Ilmarin was his hall on the White mountain
I have a couple Post-its attached to my moniter as memory refresheners of the code for those non-standard letters (on English/American keyboards) that I frequently need; that precludes my having to run 'charmap' everytime I need one.
Anyway Caudimordax gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.
What gemstone did Bilbo pocket inside the Lonely Mountain
What a great idea, Grondy; wish I'd thought of that. Guess I'll just settle for stealing it.
Only for some Scandinavian chars i have to go on a quest to find the right number that goes with the ALT key.
But for the real masochists, i suggest purchasing an Arabian keyboard..
Morambar had the correct answer and now has another pretty bauble.
Whose legs was Bilbo short enough to walk through
Who killed Beren
Wasn't Carcharoth also a character in H.P. #4 and Dragon Ball Z or have I got some of my pronunciations wrong?
Which Vala came last to Arda, and what did he delight in
What was Sam's profession
What were the script and language of the fire-letters on the Ring (not what they said)
In which battle were Isildur and his three eldest sons slain
In what city was the Rath Dinen
Ensure brain is activated before engaging mouth.
So please try again.
