Beards emit psionic waves to mind control plump helmet men into migrating to your fortress and falling asleep in the cozy mud, where your farmer finds them.

What happened to all the FBs made out of booze?
Dwarves.

Why are walls indestructible to almost everything?

Because it isn't pure adamantine, there are only stands of it in the rock.

Why can't anything go past a certain point in the sky?

Because the gods are having a party up there and don't want anyone to crash it.

Why don't clowns just steal a pick from the miner who uncovered them?

Once they're out, they don't need the pick.

Why is it just so fun to build massive and convoluted death traps?

Why wouldn't it be fun?  You get to murder lazily!

Edit: Whoops, forgot to ask... Hmm...

Why do drawbridges rape and destroy *almost* everything they land on, and is it painless?

I too have not seen relationships form after a year of playing.

I think due to my large meeting rooms and statue gardens, there are too many people there to socialize with, spreading it out among everyone. I'll give it a try with lots of smaller gardens sprinkled throughout the levels. I have seen people become friends after numerous parties are thrown, but no weddings.

Because it compresses it to a size so small that it enters another dimension, which is also the answer to the infinite sand. It is made out of matter from other universes.

Here's my question:

He probably posted it here instead of the relationship questions thread.

Offtopic question, why do bronies spread out and piss everyone off except for on this forum? (for the most part anyways)

ONTOPIC QUESTION, Are forgotten beasts named that because you forget they exist until you accidentally bump into it again and it destroys you?

Because it's always horny and has no sense of shame or propriety.

What can't dwarven parents (or overlords) assign chores to children?  "Does as it pleases" my ass.

(Children usually help with tearing shit down, so no complaints here)
Because as we know air approaches infinity density as you get lower to the ground, hence windmills only working on ground level. Children and kobolds are so burdened by the sheer act of moving that getting work from them is impossible, so they lounge around and steal from the the productive folk.

Why do dwarven mothers carry their children and not deposit him in the safe room with the (lead) toys I made.

Because babies make excellent shields, and can be replaced.

Why do individual bolts melt down for more than stacks of bolts?

This is something they don't teach in dwarven chemistry. The greater surface area of bolts compared to bars allows the bolts to collect dust, and over time produce a new layer of rust/dust/water which adopts the consistency of the metal underneath due to quantum blending. When you melt it all and produce bars it all gets mixed evenly you end up with more bars then what you started with.


Why can only certain metals be mixed together, like gold and silver, but not steel and gold?
