Now it is clear and the grammar makes sense.

Thank you for the explanation, Drag0nspeaker!

Hi english learners,
on a text-based internet browser-game I've found this use of the future perfect tense. I underastand the general meaning, but isn't it strange used in this way?

The Missionary raises an eyebrow. When the Missionary raises an eyebrow in that way, the effect is of oiled machinery moving somewhere. "Are you quite sure?" she asks. "The Park of Memorials? We'll have travelled almost in a circle..."

Hi,
I bumped into the "three ring" expression by Sir Terry Pratchett. A little bit of context:

Then it comes into view overhead, bigger than the biggest, most unpleasantly armed starcruiser in the imagination of a three-ring filmmaker: a turtle, ten tousand miles long.

I thought that the expression was related to circus. What can be the meaning here?

I already know the meaning of chore as sostantive, but I ave a doubt:
In a book i'm reading right now a street vendor shouts:
"Rice cakes! Rice cakes! Get a chore nice rice cake!"
What is the meaning of "chore in this case? It seem an adjective.
