  • Too Much Moorcock?

    This goes under the heading of Bizarre Occurrences. I had to stop by a bank yesterday in a part of town I seldom visit. The teller who waited on me was a very cute, friendly young girl who was also an albino. I of course thought of Elric and his daughter. So I left the bank and went to meet a friend for lunch. We were about halfway through our meal when I looked around at one of the other tables and there sat a tall, slender, young man with shoulder length white hair, and yes, he was an albino. If a white rabbit had run by I'd have probably jumped up and dashed from the restaurant. I think I'm reading too much Moorcock...

    You've certainly beaten the odds, Thongor. This one falls in the "I wish I won the lottery instead" category.

    Cool story to be able to tell. And watch out for those white rabbits!

      You know, I didn't even think of that, Doc. I checked google and it lists the occurrences of albinism as one in 17,000. I did note that the bank teller didn't have red eyes, since I was face to face with her, but that's apparently the case for a lot of albinos. The guy in the restaurant was wearing shades so I don't know about him.

        I saw only one man albino in my life...real albino with red eyes, not blue.
        But i remember also to have seen a Great Dane albino... he was a spectral vision! Red eyes, pink ears he looked like an infernal dog.

          What terrific personal fortitude. How did you not ask them about Elric? Nice job!

            So,meeting two albinos requires you meet 289 000 000 people...
            And you saw both of them almost the same time.Maybe they were relatives?I guess they might as well be...Elric and his daughter...

            On the other hand,as my professor in Statistics had told me,if a rare phenomenon happens,the moment with the greatest possibility to happen again is just the next one.And the possibility drops rapidly,as time goes on.

              Ive seen Johnny Winters live 3 times. He is albino..and he does ROCK. Maybe you should have asked the young fellow if he had any acting experience?

                Thongor, how many people live in your town/city? Maybe you should work out how many there could be and try to find the rest?

                You seem to have a knack for it!
                You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

                  There is no such thing as too much Moorcock.

                      I'm afraid if I find any more I'll have to go off to Mu-Ooria and fight Prince Gaynor or something!

                        Thongor,I think that if you search your house you may find an old sword with special powers...
                        Should anyone come and ask for it...you know you are in deep trouble. ;)

                          You should be OK as long as you don't have any relatives called Gaynor or Gunnar, etc.

                            Hi Thongor,


                            That is some strange occurrence.



                            When I first saw your line, I was going to reply:



                            There is never enough Moorcock!
