He may be the Land's saviour but Covenant's maths does not add up!!

p166 Fatal Revenant

Quote:
'Oh, that's right,' he added suddenly, mocking the newcomer. 'I forgot. Your people hardly agree on anything. Half of them will be after her power. Half of them will be busy at something completely looney, like trying to make friends with the damn Worm of the World's End. And half of them will only be doing the only thing they are good at, which is watching the rest of the world go by and wishing they were Elohim.'


3 halves?? I think the strain of being the Arch of Time is getting to TC!

I remember reading that for the first time and thinking "Covenant sounds like Yogi Berra." Wink

Hockey games have three periods, but I cheekily like to refer to the third as the "third half." And Car Talk has three halves -- but don't drive like my brother.
