Re: 1149: Broomstick

The Ring was not so omnipresent and/or omniscient as to choose to be taken by Bilbo (or by Gollum in the first place). It's unknown if the Ring was lying around solely because of Gollum's carelessness (it was usually so dark at the caves that he rarelly used it anymore), or maybe it was in fact cau...
