Weren't Dogs Extinct Untill the Mindrain Brought Them Back?
« on: April 14, 2012, 01:53:38 PM »

I could've sworn that in extras during the mindrain they were inventing dogs, i.e. the unnamed one kicking a lead about a poodle. Yet, in Shay's Story Zane has a dog whistle... ?

They never said dogs were extinct. They just weren't a big part of life, and the ones that were around were just the standard breeds. Nothing fancy. That's why Yoshi Bannana has no clue WTF a poodle is; he's never seen one before. Or, he's just being his standard troll self and whoring views.

Was it poodles in general, or one specific poodle?

A picture of one; its in Extras. Aya's older brother Hiro complains how Yoshi's making a big deal about a picture of a poodle, claming it to be a genetic experement gone wrong.

Same here. I just remember random stuff from books really easily.

Lol xD I remember some things, and others I totally forget xD
I remember the scenery really clearly, for some reason. I think when I read books I remember really well how I visualized the setting, even if I totally forgot the rest of the story. Like when Tally first kisses David, I see in my head exactly what I imagined the hill looking like even though I can't remember much of the scene.

You're like my freind; he imagens EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of the settings (and often draws them) but can't remember what goes on in it.
I'm more of an all-around rememberer. Useful for writing fanfiction, I've foudn.

Well THAT is something I can't say about him. But then again, he's not the kind of person who reads a lot. He mostly watches TV or plays COD. Not even sure WHY he read Uglies...his only comment on it is how Dr. Cable's group wouldn't last 30 seconds against Captain Price, Soap MacTavish, and the rest of Task Force 141.
