Larry Niven had a book called The Legacy of Heorot

wherein which there was a Big Bad that * SPOILER* lived in the water, but might Overheat if not able to return after a sprint on land. Self Cooking Meal alright...

PS- Funny that: Winds Names. It turns out one of my favorite cars to own and operate is a Volkswagen Scirocco (note slight spelling difference, those crazy Germans...)

Here is what the early kinds looked like:

(Those of us 'old heads' as I keep getting referred to, more and more, don't consider the 'new' Scirocco to be worthy of the name, but at least they tried)...

At one time VW was naming cars after winds - the Rabbit was "Golf" {pronounced "gulf"} in Europe, which is a wind, too.

"I can do that song!", btw; So too was the VW Jetta named after a wind. (Although most of them overseas are called a 'Vento' for some reason...)

Plus there was a Corrodo, which turns out to be a slang-ish expression from Spain.

I once owned a VW bus that was muy corrodod and should have been named after a broken wind . . . .

Does he have any connection to the Swedish Chef, by any chance?
Does it ever occur to anyone else that maybe funhouses would not be a good place to live?
