Any thoughts on this fantasy inscribed in a format for visual perception?

Yes that exactly. It's tough to mention such... :ph34r:

 

You do realise that you can mention books - it is just plugging your own that is against the rules. If the age on your profile is correct I had read most of Swift's work before you were born - so I am pretty sure I wouldn't be confused into thinking you were the 18th century anglo-irish satirist back from the dead to increase the circulation of this book.

There is some physics etc to be discussed.
For example, the tiny people would find it very difficult to keep warm because of their much greater ratio of surface area to mass.

They would (like small mammals) have to keep eating almost all the time in order to get enough energy. yet in the book there are suggestions of meals etc more or less like ours.

That's not possible.

There are other effects of small size that would make a real difference to how these Lilliputian people lived.

Their Brobdingnagian counterparts wouldn't be any better off. If they got out of bed their leg bones would snap under the weight.

Now everything makes sense. It's just another older male trying to dominate the world and the young... :huh:

 

Or, the site owners have determined they don't want people advertising anything on their science discussion site. And an older male who has experience with non-profit, non-promotional endeavors was asked by the owners to help moderate and enforce the rules, hoping the young will eventually understand why this is necessary for all, and not a personal attack.

Right. This is all about you. It's not like I get 81 hits when I search for "url removed" or 186 for advertising removed or anything.

Dude our time differs for an active discussion. When you are fresh and awake it's probably the time for me to hit the sack and vice versa.

 

 

Do you understand how discussion boards work? You post something and then go away (figuratively), other people post things, and then when you come back, you can respond. It's not unlike email in that regard.
