No, you didn't guess anything. Yes, they taunted them, but what did they call them?...they had a specific name with which they referred to them.

Try PMing Lindir. I have PMing disabled, so I can't, but that's the best way.

I PMed Lindir, so hopefully we'll get a question soon. This long wait probably means he has a really hard question

Edit: Hey folks, don't waste bandwidth with your impatience. (This is not aimed particularly at you Orcrist. I'm just editing to save making a new post.)

Nope. (There's 3 things that I know of, but you'll only have to list one.)

Hint: 2 of them are spices.

Saffron! (though unlikely cause it would've cost a fortune). Curry powder!

Very cool....who would've thought of that!?!? "We need the forest to look like autumn but we aren't allowed to do anything to harm the forest." "Let's use paprika!" Man, people can be very smart.

Okay, here's one for the mathematical set: What was the minimum amount of silicone Weta was using daily?

Nope, not 1 or 2 gallons...isn't that like a milk jug or two? Think about what they were using it for (feet!) and how many of those they needed and were making. (lots!)

Pipe The results of my doing 'a bit of research' :p

Well, I'm stumped. I searched google on 'weta silicone', 'weta lord of the rings silicone daily use', and about 1000 other combinations. I even went to www.lordoftherings.net and read all the production articles. Short of calling a Weta executive, I can't think of much else to do!
