what are two things you were surprised to find were just different names for the same thing? (example, chickpea and garbanzo bean)

chickpea and garbonzo was one I had just found out that morning, which was a surprise to me.

"good artists borrow great artists steal" have you ever found a work you really enjoy because someone else was cribbing from it?

BLAME! I had first heard of it because AT-43 wholesale stole the therian designs from Blame! They're cool minis, but the blame! version was waaaaaaay better.

If you were to throw the book at some one, which book would you throw?

 

I could probably do some serious damage with my big hardback World Mythology book, not sure how throw-able it is though.

Alfred W. Crosby's "Throwing Fire: Projectile Technology through History." Just seems fitting that a book about projectiles is used as one, could probably add a whole new chapter to the book if it whacks someone hard enough.

Why would anyone abuse the magic that is books when there are perfectly good rocks just laying around doing nothing?

What if the book is L. Ron Hubbard's Dianetics?

 

Save the rocks!

... copy of the tax code and a trebuchet. I'd have no shortage of targets.

Throw in some books on ethics, wrapped in dictionaries, for some other people.

One of my college chem textbooks. I still have them.

 

Hardcover. 1500-2000 pages each. Heavy with forbidden knowledge.

I'm going to go with a few romance novels.  Add insult to the injury!

One does not throw romance novels. Rather, with a heaving chest and quivering muscles, you momentarily strain with the effort to propel it through the air, gasping from the exertion, all the while with beads of sweat trickling down your sun-kissed skin...

The Criminal Code of Canada. Man did I hate lugging that thing around to class. I gave it its own bag, which was about as exciting as the material. Actually, some of it was quite interesting, like the laws about human remains and that witchcraft was still in there in 2008. We never studied those parts. I would forget it on the bus at least every two weeks. It got so the lady at the transit office saw me coming and lugged it over.

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you realize that the killer might in fact be a werewolf, or werewolves?

Bonus question how do you let everyone else know it might be werewolves?
