Fridge: The Colour of Magic
Fridge Logic

  • How the hell did the Unseen University hold together from the backstabbing, cutthroat place we are greeted to in the first two books?
    • Very tentatively.

Fridge Brilliance

  • Why Luggage is frequently separated from Twoflower: Losing your luggage is an integral part of being a tourist.
  • The Wyrmberg is a huge peak that, somehow, stands upside-down. A later novel's description of Lu-Tze's bonsai mountains may explain this, as Discworld mountains evidently have a morphogenic field that's projected downward from the bit of stone at their very tops. If Lu-Tze can harvest those particular bits, and grow them on dishes to create miniature mountains — complete with diminutive glaciers, streams, forests or even vulcanism — then why couldn't one of those tip-of-the-peak bits that was accidentally turned upside-down grow an entire mountain in that orientation?
