Hermaphrodite is just another word for sex maniac, obviously.

Of course it is, why else would you need double equipment? I mean, a guy who carries a gun might just need it for protection, but a guy carrying several is obviously a gun maniac.

Holy shit! I'll bet he's a hermaphrodite too, but I wouldn't want to ask him that to his face.

This may be the saddest post I've ever read.

I didn't believe it was offensive enough to be a post by RC, so I fixed it in the name of justice. Take that, doppelgängers!

Seeing as this thread has been necromanticised, I thought I'd address an old post by a reader who hasn't been online in 7 months...

The timeline of the hobbit and lotr animated films is kind of messed up.

You have the Rankin/Bass animated hobbit from 1977. Then there is also the 1978 Ralph Bakshi rotoscope animated Lord of the Rings movie from United Artists. It was supposed to be "Part I" and ends at Helms Deep, but the studio decided to drop the "Part I" and never made the sequel. So then Rankin/Bass made an animated version of Return of the King in 1980 in the same style as the 1977 Hobbit production. Some consider it the sequel to Bakshi's lord of the rings, but Rankin/Bass insists they always intended to make it as a sequel to their production of the Hobbit, skipping the first two books.

The Bakshi film is a pretty solid adaptation, but I usually don't like rotoscope and there is some cheesy stuff in it. The Rankin/Bass movies are crap.

I feel bad now... I have neglected this forum completely and I'll try to better myself!
Thanks for the link, the description of the film seems vaguely familiar, I might have seen it long ago and forgotten about it. I'll check out the whole thing later.
