Scheibenwelt (Discworld)
The place where the story happens was a world on the back of
four elephants perched on the shell of a giant turtle. That's an
advantage of space. It's big enough to hold practically anything,
and so, eventually, it does.

People think that it is strange to have a turtle ten thousand miles long and an
elephant more than two thousand miles tall, which just shows that the human brain is
ill-adapted for thinking and was probavly originally designed for cooling the blood.
It believes that mere size is amazing.

There is nothing amazing about size. Turtles are amazing and elephants are quite
astonishing. But the fact there's a big turtle is far less amazing than the fact
that there is a turtle anywhere.
[...]

(Terry Pratchett - 'The Last Hero')


Suggestion for next week:
"illustrate a song title or part of the lyrics"

H.C. Andersen's The Snow Queen:

"The walls of the palace were driven snow. The windows and doors were the knife-edged wind. There were more than a hundred halls, shaped as the snow had drifted, and the largest of these extended for many a mile. All were lighted by the flare of the Northern Lights. All of the halls were so immense and so empty, so brilliant and so glacial! There was never a touch of gaiety in them; never so much as a little dance for the polar bears, at which the storm blast could have served for music, and the polar bears could have waddled about on their hind legs to show off their best manners. There was never a little party with such games as blind-bear's buff or hide the paw-kerchief for the cubs, nor even a little afternoon coffee over which the white fox vixens could gossip. Empty, vast, and frigid were the Snow Queen's halls. The Northern Lights flared with such regularity that you could time exactly when they would be at the highest and lowest. In the middle of the vast, empty hall of snow was a frozen lake. It was cracked into a thousand pieces, but each piece was shaped so exactly like the others that it seemed a work of wonderful craftsmanship. The Snow Queen sat in the exact center of it when she was at home, and she spoke of this as sitting on her "Mirror of Reason." She said this mirror was the only one of its kind, and the best thing in all the world."

One of my all time favourite books: Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho

"There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there."

Great! I just realized that I haven't read the title properly. I thought we were suppose to make illustrations for a book - not a scene. damn it! I'm not making any new ones so these will have to do

My Grandpa used to regale us with Bible stories. He’d speak in that King James Version of our language, full of vigor and archaic diatribe. My favorite Bible story involved Abraham. According to my Grandpa, he tied his ass to a tree and walked up a mountain.

Nancy - in English, "ass" is another word for "donkey"
```````````````````````````````````
Oh, man, I SERIOUSLY hope this isn't another one of those times when I try to explain something to a person who doesn't speak English as their primary language, only to discover that they know perfectly well what's going on, thereby making myself look like a total ASS.

...now that I think about it, this could also be one of those times where I say something stupid to Nancy, and come off like a typical idiotic American.

I'm going to go hide under the table now.

haha I'm afraid that this is one of those cases Clavus but how would you know. I think it's mighty sweet of you to make sure I know what's going on

I've never understod why you'd use the word "ass" about a donkey though

The use of the word "ass" as a synonym for "donkey" was established by the Pan Atlantic English Humor Board in the early 1700's. It was the mission of the board to assign second "dirty" definitions to everyday words (i.e. prick, pussy, cock, bitch). Because of the great work done by the PAEHB, the English language is full of wonderful comic possiblities.

From a scene in a Louis L'Amour Western short story collection called "The Strong Shall Live"

Beaten and left to die in the desert, Cavaghen makes his way to a little known underground natural tank, (told to him by an old Pima indian he once kept fed during a bad drought) to replenish vital bodily fluids lost during the scorching heat of the sun......then on to get a little gun justice against the men trying to steal his land.
