OK, so I sat as long as I could yesterday and watched The Hobbit. In all fairness, I slept through a lot but then today, I tried to sit through The Desolation of Smaug. Now, I may have mentioned in the past that fantasy - Tolkein - is really not my bag but, hey ho ... So the bit that really got my goat ... the dwarves make it back to the chambers to look for the arkenstone, they fool Smaug into lighting the furnace, afterwhich, they open the doors to let the molten gold flow down the gullys like a river. So then Thorin picks up a wheelbarrow and rides the river of gold ... HOW THE HELL!????? If the wheelbarrow is made of wood, it would surely burn in flames as soon as it hits the gold. If the barrow is made of any kind of metal with a melting point lower than that of gold, it would melt as soon as it hit the river of gold. If it's metal with a higher melting point, ok it wouldn't melt but as metal is the best conductor of heat, Thorin would be burned to a crisp. So what the hell is the wheelbarrow made out of??
