It's been around for a long time (as far as ACOS for sure, perhaps before). RJ also used his mouth/words/voice this way too.

Default I love it

I love it when the uber-arguers on the board start getting goofy with their responses. All we need is for Callandor to tell a knock-knock joke and the circle of life will be complete.

Nice bit of foreshadowing here (might have already been brought up in another thread. Probably has...but I am currently working my way through aCoS and this caught my eye):

I figure there's not much point in being deadly serious all the time.

Yeah, that'd be tearfully boring.

Balefire makes it as if these things didn't happen, but they still happened. It doesn't erase memory - just consequences.

What cites need to be Seanchan controlled exactly for them to have spoken truth? Rand is interpreting it like "you can say the east and south are controlled by the Seanchan...".
All the 'Finns said here, when you add it up, is that the whole of Randland must be one. Pretty simple.

Also, Min's viewings aren't tricksy at all, and she says Rand will die.

Balthamel and Ishamael are alive, again. Aginor is dead (again). Not sure why you asked - that's obvious.

Birgitte says that Heroes in the afterlife are 'not dead as others are dead'. That works well enough to explain the paradox - better than anything anyone else has come up with, I think.

It would probably take him the circle of life to tell it, but sure ... sounds great! hehe

He sat there with his ankles crossed and one arm hanging over the heavy arm of the throne, yet he seemed ready to explode into violence. Interestingly, though his black coat was embroidered with blue-and-gold dragons that twined around the sleeves from elbows to cuffs, he did not wear the collar pins.

Oh God, I accidently stumbled into the Rand-Moridin body switch thread.
