Ditto, and the darwinist beasties would "fit in" better with the characters

Leviathan animated...I can see that. Get Studio Ghibli to do it.

Also; looking at anything that involves genetic modification reminds me of Leviathan. Like, how they're saying GMO foods are everywhere and bad for us, and I suddenly have a vision of a Darwinist soldier lobbing a potato into a group of Germans and it exploding.

Whoever made the Tintin Movie could pull of the Leviathan verse. Since it was animated with an insane amount of realism.

Fletchete rilfe...yes, I could see this being used.
And what's funny is that fletcheete is "dart" in French (like Alek says in Leviathan).

Guys in the movie we watched got stuck free floating in a hot air balloon (Should've been a Huxley, but oh well.)

Today I accidentally called a upperclassman that took my dollar at lunch a clanker and he gave it back :D

I was playing soccer the other day and the coach for the opposing team kept calling the midfielders "middies" , just about killed me. ::) Oh that poor unknowing man....

Hah! Gotta try that myself!

Got another one; my friend was recently complaing about his cat, and he said (and I qoute) "the damn thing's gotten so fat you could drop a f***ing bomb on it and it would live."
And he hasn't read Leviathan.

My hands and cloths are now coated with grease, epoxy with brass and plastic shavings stuck to them. Oh, and my whole room smells like spray paints and glue. XD

Totally feel like Alek when he transplanted the engines onto the Leviathan. Except, i was trying to create a brass breach for my nerf guns. XD
