Sorry Miyabi if i offended you in anyway dude. :-\. Im not really like that actually, i mean i was kidding before about that whole my girlfriend bit. In all seriousness, i would probably be an Allo if a lived in Luthedal but only for sheer necessity. however here, in this world, Feruchemy without any doubt, i could read all the books i want never forget them. Oh! I could read the Thesarus, the Dictionary, and the Quran! Admitly, i would be pretty awesome to be like Sazed. Miyabi dude im sorry.

p.s. if anyone has any suggestions for books i coulf read, rather than wait until the 14th that would be coolness.
I definitely think you SHOULD memorize the dictionary. ha ha. j/k.  No, you didn't offend me, I just like to make statements where I put myself in another persons perspective.  Like if I was my friend Missy, that's what she would have said, so I said it. ha ha. I just like to bring in different ideals now and then, it's fun.

Thats sounds...challenging. Let me see what would Dr. Cox from Scrubs say to that. Oh!

"miyabe, for all that is good in the god forsaken place ne-ha-ver again try and explain things like that to me. I mean really, i dont care. You want to know just how much i dont care? hmm, lets see. Let me just make a list of all the things i would rather do then read another one of your "what i like to do" messeges. I would rather eat cactus, milk a bull, drive a pink escort, am i making myself clear? "cuz the list goes on and on and on and on and on? Why are you still reading? newbie? Leave. Now."

Ok. you dont watch scrubs, first of all, whats wrong with you and secondly that was a perfect Dr. Cox.
"I love you."
"you dont. You just think you do because i'm all you know."
"Really? So whats this burning sensation i'm having in my stomach?"
"Too much ale."
"Not love?"
"No. But i can see how you confused the two."
"I don't feel good."
"They do that to you."
"my legs, their numb."
"Hahaha!"
"haha!"

Besides, he's not really the hero. He's more like Vin, appearing to be the hero, but actually only distracting from me, the real hero.

Maybe you are just Rashek, believing to be the Hero.

You shouldn't say things like that. The only reason we  know that Rashek is not the Hero is because I am.

You know what because I like both of you and Chaos has a follower I think I'll throw my lot in with Andrew. I mean how could he not be the HoA with a name that ends in The Great. Plus Chaos gets fell points and thats not sweet.

Your church vs. mine!

It's definitly Chaos2651, think about it. The HOA will hold the greatest power in the known land, The HOA will have the ability to change worlds, create and destroy anything.

Which makes him dangerous. Remember what we read in the begining of book three, knowing the power is different then understanding it.

And so i argue, my fellow followers to be, who can better avoid and understand how to keep way from such disasters than CHAOS itself? CHAOS is not his name! NO, it is who he is. Rashek did not know what the consequences of his actions, he wasn't aware of the manner in which Chaos emerged. And so, from his foolishness, it came, and usurped the world, killing all beauty and crippling life! We need a HOA that knws the innerworkings of Chaos so that he might avoid setting them off....If he so chooses, that is.

oh this ones easy. If it were real life or in the book I would choose feruchemy. The reasons are very simple. Its better ha ha XD lol just kidding. But I do have some points I can make that feruchemy wouldn't totally be useless.

1. You don't need to get more of that metal(with correct percentages of alloys and what not)
2. You can store attributes and use them as a boost and can vary the intensity that you use the attribute and how long it lasts for.

Basically its easier to get a hold of you don't need to always get more metals and constantly wonder if your gonna burn out. The 2nd point I made is why I really think Sazed was being fairly stupid in his way of using feruchemy. I see so many possibilities.  For example since we know that feruchemy lets you store attributes and use them however we want I can just imagine a person using it to fly around light as a feather for a minute or so then in 1 second use it all to fall on one person with all they weight used in a single blow. I find that amusing since if you can waste it all in one go the weight of your fall will be multiplied. why not store pewter make yourself light by storing weight than jump and fall down on them while tapping into strength and weight at the same time.  I think there is a lot to be explored in feruchemy battles XD as we know Sazed is a scholar not a fighter. Just imagine what a fighter could do.

It is specifically stated that the feruchemist can dump it all at once. and even if burning is instantaneous, if I've stored enough speed, I can have that knife in your neck before the thought processes have even registered what's going to happen and told your body to move.

and, hooray for you for pushing a coin against the thing thrown at you. If it's heavier than you, you're just going to push yourself away.


As for hanging up in the air, a) your atium won't last forever, either, and assuming I'll be using up my resources while I cant' reach you is foolish. b) I can find what metal you're pushing on and move it, probably causing you to crash into things. "Oh, you're pushing on this nail? How about I rip it out with stored strength and toss it over there so you go flying in that other direction."

Allomancers can do quite a lot, but trust me, even when they do stand up to a feruchemist, it won't be nearly so one-sided as you seem to think.
Imagine what would happen if they stored up weight while they tapped speed! Oh I sense supersonic afterimages and ninja like death strikes! Add a little bit of pewter and you have a tank!

This depends on your life-if you have stability, Feruchemy is probably going to be more useful.  If you have to stay on the go, Allomancy would be quicker-you need to worry less about your metal stores than a Feruchemist would have to worry about their stores.

I can't stop thinking of how good Feruchemy would be if you need to take a test- super speed writing, super fast thinking, incredible amounts of information at hand...

This would also translate in a fight; Feruchemists should be able to outwit Allomancers, as they can increase their thought processes...
