I think I remember The Old Guy that helped Franky when he was deserted in Vegapunk's hometown said something like that

but I might be wrong

If anything, i highly doubt that Buggy would be behind all this. The idea that he is would imply that he has gotten stronger in the past 2 years which rather goes against Buggy's whole thing. He's a comic relief villain, and the whole idea now is that he's supposed to be commanding a crew of pirates who are stronger than him and using nothing more than bluffs and reputation to keep himself ahead of the game.

Its somewhere around the 590's before franky got the news from Luffy to wait 2 more years; the chapter where he accidently causes a massive explosion on the island. The Old man tells franky that Dr.Vegapunk was working on a ground heating system to help the freezing poeple but was never able to complete it.

I found it. Thanks for that. But even so, that island of Balgimoa isn't necessarily his homeland. All that was said was that he spent his youthful days there. He may have migrated there from somewhere else.

Y'know, since Brooke's apparently going to have a solo adventure now, I'm kinda hoping that we'll see him make a path from the Sunny to Punk Hazard by freezing the ocean, Aokiji style (which would be really badass ). I mean, maybe his spirit powers will prevent the ice from melting so easily in that blazing-hot temperature.....

I'm guessing the giant kids have been kidnapped from the giant village for some experiments.

I think the more likely candidate is Zoro. He was the one parenting chopper afterall. + it fits into his whole cold external persona, but being a push over in reality

And to lesser extent, "puu" for higher pitched fart.
Likewise, the whooppie cushion you use for pranks to make fart sounds is called buu buu cushion in Japan.

I don't think that's what Kanon is alluding.
More like, Vegapunk continued the research to create warmer climate on PH for his homeland, but the experiment went out of control.

Can't he walk on water anyway? I think (and hope) that we'll get some Brook action in the next few chapters

The thing is, we don't know that one of Vegapunk's goals was/is to change the climate of his homeland. That was never stated anywhere, and that's why I questioned Kanon's assertion of that. Seeing as how Vegapunk was trying to provide a heating system for the people of Balgimoa, I made the correlation between that and the "goal" in question, because I don't see how else Kanon could have come up with such a statement. In any case, this was presumptuous on Kanon's part (but understandably so).

You're right. The problem is actually that I misremembered what the old man told Franky, I could have sworn he had told him Vegapunk had tried to warm up the climate the island when in reality he specifically told him he was trying to make a heating system, which is indeed not the same thing.

Nevertheless, I still think this theory stands. He might have taken his work into another direction, or it could be that very heating system that went into serious overdrive

I figured somebody would bring that up, but frankly I figured that the waters near PH would be hot enough to melt bones, which was why I suggested the idea of him freezing the ocean. Well either that, or the harpy lady will discover him and fly him to her "nest" or something crazy like that.

I'm still curious to see if she will turn out to be a Zoan or a lab-experiment

i tend to agree with this. i'm curious to see what other "experiments" they conducted on that island.

In reviewing the island so far, we know that it reminds us of Hailfire Peaks. Of course with a name like Punk Hazard you'd think we would be dealing with radioactive mutants or gamma radiation itself especially after seeing those grunts in hazmat suits. As for the giant children, the girls are as cute as kittens.

Now I hope I'm not being off topic here but in databook green there were sketches of what the whole Strawhat crew would look like including one additional character with a fishing net. Any idea wether we'd see him on Punk Hazard or any island yet to be explored?

Just so you know, there is a difference between tabling interesting thoughts to stimulate discussion, and just throwing random bs out as it pops into your head. Most of your posts are somethign to do with Nami/Robin/other female character first, and then you switch to just talking random bs 80% of the time, with the exception being when you're replying to something somebody else already said that made sense, and even then your reply isn't particularly profound anyway.

Hey now, settle down.

That comment of yours doesn't mesh with your professed occupation under your name.

^Thanks for the defense philip72. Prehaps you could at least answer the second part of my last post here about the Strawhat crew sketch in databook green including the mysterious 10th character.

Sorry, I don't remember anything of the sort in the Green Databook. Just some short stories about Jango, Helmeppo and Cody, Buggy, etcetera...
So I'm afraid I have no idea.
