What is Ed reading?  
I was going through my bookmarks to find a good reference picture of Ed's automail leg--I intend to start making one for me for cosplay, but that's beside the point--and I can across this screen shot:
Ed reading a book in ep 27--close up of book's text.

Okay, now everyone, read what the text says on the book.


Thus furthering the proof that any English text appearing on papers in the anime have pretty much nothing to do with the actually show. Instead of filler eps, we get filler text. X3

The book is Alchemy and Herbalism. They use different parts of the same review for the text of the "Intro to Alchemy" book in ep 3.

There's a ton of Engrish in the letter that Ed gets giving him his title. I'll look it up when I get home.

I remember... it's so funny because it alllllmost made some sort of sense. In a lot of manga's they'll have complete nonsense that sounds like it came from a legal ledger. Or even just random words like "conflagration".

"...nod to Bastion for improvement and listening to reviews (whether here or on other sites.) and others noted very minor text spacing issues with a previous sourcebook or two, and that's been taken care of in their latest design. Alchemy and Herbalists is also the most packed volume yet from Bastion.

"Review: Alchemy and Herbalists is a full-color 96-page perfect bound d20 sourcebook for DM's and players alike. It's cover depicts it as a woodsy tome with a [?], leather and wood motif. The pages are thick and durable. Border size is very good and text d[?] is exceptional.

"Artwork is good throughout, and all in full color. Border art is very attractive and also includes section headers for easy recognition. There is a very good table of context but no index. Illustrations and headers are easy to find and tables and [?] are also colored and easy to locate. ..."

Free download of six pages of the book itself available here.

I can't locate a copy of the review being quoted, though.

. . . we have a school filled with nerd-children, apparently. There are four particularly geeky clubs at our school - SciFi, Anime, Gaming (D&D), and Manga. This particular screenshot made many people's days. No less than three separate individuals printed it out and brought it in. I didn't even know that that many people watched FMA.

Thank you so very much for posting this and bringing a bit of nerdy joy to us children.

My theory on the 'babble'
Sorry to go on here, but I have a theory about the apparent 'psycho drabble' that's written on the page. (The 'flying pan' and so on. XDDD) Is that code they were talking about . . .

And I'm pretty sure that Marcoh uses the same code.

Remember the so-called cookbook? Of course you do. I'm almost absolutely sure it's close to the same code that their father uses, which is why they trusted in Scieska. (Other than, who in the hell would spend five days writing this just to deceive them? And she comes off as a nice person to begin with.) Who knows? Maybe Dante and Hohenheim both used the same sort of code from ages ago and maybe Marcoh solved it. It makes for an interesting thing to think about.
