Even better when you also speak Russian. Angel

I didn't even realise that the American version was different... I just looked it up. I always wondered why the film ended that way. Tongue

He's a Mormon asshole.

Yeah...but Ender's Game is a good book. Do you agree?

Thanks.

PS...Orson Scott card could be a Mormon asshole, but I don't care because he had a lot of good things to say.

Yup, the whole series is good. I like Bean, and his shadow series the best.

But outside of the books, the majority of what I've read on OSC... He seems like a real tool. He's a religious nutcase, homophobe, and one of them global warming deniers.
