they don't

A slight call afar is tempting me, like a whisper sweet or an awful scream; I cannot ignore what I've always been, I'm leaving again - one last time? in my little kingdom I can be what I really wanted to be... The wanderer

They do.
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

Okay, because this is probably the most frequently asked question on the forum, I added it, together with the correct answer, to the FAQ section.

It's like the brick-plate theory for why the existence of dragons is questionable (though of course they do exist :) ). A one brick dragon would need four plates to fly, but a four brick dragon would need sixteen plates (or something like that).

And why hasn't this topic been stickied yet? It's clearly a serious enough issue.

Tolkien never said they did or didn't

which both LotR movies done decided to give them wings ( Bakshi's version allows the damned thing to fly, yet magically forgets to when it falls to its death)

My opinion, no to wings.... :twisted:

guys, have you never read the faq-section of this board?
YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

...Mad world

They don't need to use them 'cause they're too cool to do so.

I am now listening to a song I just dubbed the official theme song of this debate.

NP: Blind Guardian - This Will Never End
And The Lord said unto John: 'Come forth and receive eternal life'.
But John came fifth, and won a toaster.

Well it's good. I suffered from problems in my lower back for years, and after a few visits to the chiropractor it was all gone. But you're right, I don't need to read where to find them on the BG forum.
