"The other children were found and returned to their parents... Bella, Andrew—named for me, I must point out—Julian the Third, Petra, and Ramon. Three of your siblings were giants, and of course they're gone now—Ender, Cincinnatus, Carlotta." Cincinnatus is the name of one of Bean and Petra's ...

Tons of kids survive harsh winters, also many die.
Hm, it is possible he snuck into an apartment building and slept next to the boiler. That's what I would do even if I weren't a 4-yr old genius.

Also, pneumonia isn't brought on by cold temperatures. It's brought on my infection in the lungs.
Ah, sorry, I meant that the cold would have made him more susceptible to diseases, such as pneumonia.
I had pneumonia in August in Texas...
Wow, not something I expected. Must have sucked.

Bean Couldn't Have Survived

Living for so long on the streets of Rotterdam, wouldn't Bean have gotten some disease, which he would have not been healthy enough to fight off? Also, how would he have survived through winter, where he surely would've had at least gotten pneumonia and died from that if not anything else brought on...

Since the introduction of the "Stasis" in Ender in Exile, couldn't Bean and co. just go into stasis for the duration of the flight? People in Stasis wouldn't age (at least not that much) according to Ender in Exile. And since Bean's departure to space happens chronologically after Ender's flight to...

I don't remember exactly how they do restock ships, though you do bring up a tremendously crucial point. I imagine they could get a supply ship to align trajectories with Bean's ship, though that must be tremendously difficult in light-speed. Maybe they can teleport food over in the future? Another...

Smeg-up.

So it seems that Card did consult experts in the field, which suggests that either that treatment wouldn't work for some reason, or it would work but Card ignored it so as not to ruin the story, or he consulted pretty lousy experts. :P Ahaha, I supposed that for a few moments myself. But I finally ...

in the case of the girl that was normal growth they were talking about, so Bean's situation is completely different and I don't think any amount of hormones would slow the process of his growth. Hmm, though growth hormones are needed to grow, and if said growth hormones could be removed, such as by...

Re: Mega

as I said, when he gets too large, amputations are possible so that would help with the space issue, besides he wouldn't be moving around, he would be strapped down. I believe that your body is constantly making new blood so that wouldn't be a problem and with the amputations, that would help even ...

3000 Years = A butt-load of time.

Just a quick note, if Bean never stops growing, even if his heart could pump all the needed blood, he would soon become too big to fit through most regular spaceship doorways, thus having to stay in the biggest room of the spaceship, until that became too small for him too. And as soon as he hit gra...

Dumper/Bean

I've got Quechua roots that show quite well, so I think I'd play Dumper as a teen, if he ever shows up as that, can't remember at the moment. Wish I could be him when he's younger, since he'd show up more, but I'm definitely too old now. Though I'd also like acting Bean's part. He's just analytical ...
