Tolkien trivia question and answer #46

Tolkien trivia question and answer #46

Yesterday’s trivia question was “Which rooms in Bag End had windows?” Now, I see some of you tried to trick me with an answer of “the ones on the outside, not burrowed into the Hill.” Come, come now. It’s not like Bilbo was looking for a view of the dirt and rock of the Hill. grin The actual answer is “Those on the left of the entrance hall.”

Today’s question is a translation from Elvish: “What does Elen sila lumen omentielvo mean in English?” Answer tomorrow.

  • Of course, a star shines on every hour on which one could possibly meet….

    I’m pretty sure this line was an influence on John Ford’s Klingons, who were concerned about those actions watched by the naked stars. It’s a shame I didn’t think of the logical but appalling crossover while he was still alive, as I’m sure he would have appreciated Klingon elves.

    In the few seconds before he killed me or annihilated me with a pun, that is. smile
