If the ring didn't adjust its size and it was made for Sauron, I think Bilbo would have been able to use it as a bracelet.
:grin: Indeed, that's true. I could have put it in a better way.
This is such an interesting topic, I think I'll join in the thinking. Now if the Ring would have chosen Smaug as its bearer, would Smaug have been corrupted in the end? I think so, because the Ring's power is too strong for anyone to bear. But the Ring would have had a hard time to corrupt Smaug's mind, certainly. I think that's why it didn't choose to leave Bilbo for Smaug. Bilbo fitted its purpose better.
But sure, if it would have happened this way, it would have been Smaug for the throne. Dreadful thought, innit? :superscared:nn[Edited on 5/7/2002 by TomBombadillo]
