Sting hidden technology! cheaters...

This is a really random thought... But my family thinks that the elves aren't really magical, just really advanced for their time, as in technology. Like maybe their swords run on batteries and glow blue when orcs are near because of a hidden radar in the hilt. And I think that the Seven Palantirs are really just video conference equiptment. (this might seem blasphemous to all you diehard LOTR fans out there...)
And Sauron knows where the ring is because of a hidden telemetry device!

I think that they would be visiting barrowdowns, or downloading the LOTR and TTT. So THATS how they know what's happening!

And Gandalf was able to catch up to the balrog because of rocket thrusters. End of debate!

I can see the Nazgul Instant Messaging each other, using stolden technology.

Nazgul 1: Hey, guess what?
Nazgul 2: What?
Nasgul 1: That's What!

Now we know how Elrond and Galadrial allways knew what was happening, they were the leaders of the EBI! (Elven Bureau of Investigation) They had Sauron bugged! The EBI also contracted Sauruman to take down some enemys, but we know how that turned out. Hey, this is starting to sound like Real Earth!

Ah Ha! You realise why it took the fellowship so long to leave Rivendell? You couldn't get them off of the internet!

Ring

Tom Bombadil wasn't affected by the Ring because he had nanoprobes injected into his bloodstream, which in turn made him immune to the effects of the Ring.
The elves(in the movie version) used transporters to get to Helm's Deep so quickly.
The elven cloaks have... well, um... 'cloaking devices' in them to shield them from the eyes of others.
Legolas wears anti-gravity boots, so he can make himself a lot lighter or float in the air, which helps him in doing his 'stunts' of walking on snow!
Ai! I watch too much Star Trek! That's where I got all of my ideas...

I could see the Elves putting cloaking devices in their cloaks, how else could Frodo and Sam hide from those Easterlings????

We all know that the Dwarves didnt really use rock and stone in the Mines of Moria, they used Uber-powered drills
(like the ones the used in Revolutions) to get what they wanted.
Also the Balrog was always alwake, his mom wouldnt let him get Yahoo DSL so he got very pised. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

yay! (trying to make this relevant in fear of the mods closing the thread) do you think that the elves did ballet...?

okay- Oliphaunts came from cloning wooly mammoths and then moderating their genes to non-wooly, and wargs were also results of controlled breeding experiments.
And Legolas wears super-prescription contacts.

(yaay! its the first snow day of this school year where I live! i narrowly escaped from an algebra test!)

Dance studio? Yeah, they had 'em, for the kids.

Luthien enchanted Beren with her dancing. The elves impressed Bilbo with their dancing at Rivendell. Pointe shoes? ...maybe... then again, maybe just really good technique. Tolkien says they mastered dancing AND walking AND talking from an extremely early age (like while they ere toddling, they weren't toddling, they were dancing and singing easily...)

The Ringwraiths knew where the ring was becuase it was actually fitted with a GPS positioning system.

Of course it was! And the Phial of Galadriel was actually a very powerful laser-emitter. "A light in dark places", it hurt Shelob's eyes, and it broke down the security system that the Tower of Cirith Ungol had. It makes sense!
