Would make sense to me. God, he was such a cool guy...and WESTERFELD HAD TO MAKE HIM AN ASSHOLE AND A RETARD!
Well, I'm fixing that with Grey from Darwin's Fist...

Well, he did progress pretty far so as to build Goliath... However he's probably retarded for even thinking of using it...

One by one, they ran away.  With their made up minds to leave it all behind, as the light began to fade from the city on the hill.

Trample the weak, hurtle the dead.

Mmmmmm Norwegian deer liver.

Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most.

I wouldn't push people I DONT like down a hill.

Sometimes I wonder how I missed a book like that... I still wonder if A Darlking Plan got alot of attention in 2006... cos I know ppl were reading like the Power of 5 or some crap in that year.
