    Everyone knows that Centaurs have the main body of a horse with a human torso and head nailed on the front.

    Centaurs are always depicted as being very brave and knowledgable and good with bows and arrows.

    But.

    Where are their hearts and internal organs?

    In the horse bit, or the human bit?

    I think we need to know.

    Surely they could be in both? Cows have seven stomachs or whatever it is so mythical creatures are allowed to extend this to its logical extremes and become uber-hard by having at least two of all the internal organs......maybe. :)

    More important question.

    If a centaur and a mermaid had sex, what would be the result?

    Fish-horse-man, yeah?

    As a Sagittarius I can reveal that this knowledge is on a need to know basis.

    And you don't need to know.

    Fine.

    New question.

    You have no choice but to have sex with a mermaid creature, which combination do you choose?

    a.) Womans head and torso - smelly slimy fish tail and waist.

    b.) Fish head and upper body - womans waist and lower body.

    B)

    Bash it/her over the head, then bend over large pan of boiling fat to cook the top half while performing on the bottom half (make the most of the twitching and the movement from the bubbling fat), then sit down afterwards for a tasty fish dinner.

    Hmmm.

    Sounds like we have a winner. but I would say dont hit them over the head, more twitching and spasms that way.

    Time Lords do have two hearts, this is true but what about the other organs?

    Lungs for example? The horse part has to take air in through the human mouth so technically it doesn't need them, but if it uses the human lungs then would they be large enough to get enough oxygen into the bloodstream for such a large creature.

    See, it's not just the heart that's the issue here.

    pehaps its got over sized L shaped lungs.. extending from the torso down. 2 hearts then just horse organs after that.

    A horse body would require a horse diet. Something the human head/brain might not enjoy eating and tasting.

    If one was walking alone and had to stop kind of shapish, It would just topple forward like some sort of comical inbreed drunken goat.

    Anyone for Centaur tipping?

    A quick job with a good knife, a nifty bit of work with a needle and thread, and you've got yourself a whole woman! :cool:

    Although she might be a bit less lively than normal.

    Feek doesn't need to explain himself....

    And as a fellow Sagittarius, I agree with Stringy, need to know only...
