Oh, now I like anything that has to do with Fate. :)

Good one.

I love the fact that:
(a) I didn't understand this card;
(b) Jessica didn't explain it;
and (c) I found the answer in the comments.

Thank you "Indexed" and all you fine folks!

Is it wrong that Stephen King's Insomnia explained this to me?

....is it sad that I recognize those three words from a video game that doesn't explain what they mean? (Final Fantasy XI)....

Checked out the Wiki article. Is atropos like those witches in that cartoon Hercules movie? I seem to remember some string of life being cut.

RedWordSmith said...

Well anon, I recognize the names from Crono Cross, also a Square game, wherein they belonged to the three guardians of the FATE supercomputer.

Roy said...

scotty b - yes those characters in the Hercules movie supposedly are the three Fates.

Oh, and I want to have a million of Jessica's babies. This shows a level of wit and erudition that I can't even aspire to...

Rob said...

Greek names! The Moirai [Fates]! You rock! ευ γε!
