Could actually help, now that I think about it... it could relax the nascent werewolf so that they're not so terrified at what's going on with them, and, the way I see it, if they're not fighting the change, it might be easier for them...

Ok, here's one.

1. Being bitten by a regular wolf ---- Busted!

I was bitten by a wolf named Lunadi, the origional "Ate Little Red Ridding Hood" wolf. Happened a while ago and still not a werewolf. Not sure if this was ever a myth, but thought I'd post it anyway.

there is not a single good reason in this world for killing wolves, if something dies at the end of the muzzle, then it was ment to be. Purely disgusting :x
Reading an distributing copies of "The Werewolf's Guide to Life: a Manuel for the newly bitten" Help, where it's needed.

Actually, unless Lunadi was a Werewolf, all you got was bitten. It has to be a Practicing Werewolf; not just any old "cousin" Wolf. I hope Lunadi is alright...humans are full of nasty things that can give the cousins indigestion at the very least.

That's a new one: Running water is deucedly hard to curse ( in fact it makes a great shield) because it is moving constantly. Now if you were referring to a pond or pool; that's different. Still water can be easily cursed, and will retain the magical energy as long as it stays still.
Imagine that the animal who drank from said pond wasn't a wolf, but, let's say--a moose.

OhmyGawd!! A Were-Moose! Of course, no one will admit to being one...

your concern for my wellfare is touching :roll:

I pulled my hand back in time to receive only a couple scars. Lunadi is as happy as ever. He still growls everytime I so much as glance his way though.

I vistied the website and the part that says: "Being bloodily murdered on a full moon" part doesn't really make sense to me. First off, if you're dead, you can't really become a werewolf. And second, I am sure that loads of people have been killed under a full moon and never turned into a werewolf, and also, they would be dead. So I really don't see how that part would fit into becoming a werewolf. Unless you were to come back from the dead, but wouldn't that make you a zombie or a vampire?
Take my advice-- I don't use it anyway

This was in two stories in a book of werewolf stories, supposedly if your index, middle, and ring fingers are the same length or very close to it your a werewolf.

There are a lot of us here with a Monobrow; only mine keeps slipping off to one side now and then.

As for Claws; keeping them well trimmed (electricians diagonal cutters, different grades of files, sandpaper, and pink semi-transparent nail lacquer) works for me. The nail lacquer is to cover the telltale gray color and make them at least look human...
:evil:

Piling all your clothes together and pissing a ring of urine around them...

What?!?! I'm a chick, I can't do that! Or it's really hard to do that. It's not like we can aim, like guys (theoretically) can.

Well you forget the hypothetical situation were an animal (this applies to any animal in my mind, including wolves) is attacking a person or, especially in this case, a child. In that situation, my policy is that you have the right to defend yourself to whatever degree is necessary. In some situations this may warrant a gun if you have it, because animals can be quite determined, especially when it would just up and attack a person.

Defending yourself is one thing... I'm all for defending yourself...

....hunting them down is another, and *that's* what I have a problem with.

I trust any intelligent person can distinguish between reasonable "self defense" and the point where it goes beyond that.

Once there is a sufficient population, most wolf communities will manage themselves.

There is a reason for killing wolves, but it doesn't include hunting. That is population management. Most of North America is unbalanced enough that humans have to do the predation that in the past was done by other animals.
Sadly, sometimes we have to kill some wolves to prevent the whole population from starving, or in rare cases; the spread communicable diseases external to the area. Think smallpox and american indians...
This is not hunting. This is doing what is responsible, since we screwed up the natural balances ourselves, and now have to take nature's place in this unpleasant task.
Current wolf populations are not that high yet, that we need to manage them in that way.
Hunting Guides can learn new skills. Wolves can't...quite, yet.

Okay, killing a wolf out of self defense is one thing, but to test a stupid myth; damn it, if I was the devil* I would strike you down where you stand. No, worse, i'd turn you into a wolf and make it so you were forced to live every bit of crulety to a wolf for the rest of enernity, Distorted realism.
Honestly though, a lot of these "Turn into a werewolf myths seem a bit off the mark. I mean, hemlock and nightshade will kill you.

Uhhh...Lycan 94;
Could you try that again, only this time in English instead of Rant? I've read your reply to Distorted Realism three times, and it still doesn't make sense.

(nervously laughs) Sorry about the ranting. I do that sometimes. Okay, alot, but what I was trying to say was that to kill a wolf in the sake of testing a myth wasn't worth it.
Wolves don't attack humans, why can't we return the favor?
