sorry John we are jerks

sorry John we are jerks

Thu, 08/27/2009 - 10:10 by Ananth in response to we make a nice gradient

H-Hey guys! So we have internet again, that's cool. Actually, funny thing about that ... we got all hooked up, and everyone was really excited, and then 2 hours in, one by one, we all admitted that we had caught up on work e-mails and exhausted the entertainment value of the internet. We ended up doing other things like reading books and talking to each other, which I know sounds crazy, but please believe me when I say it is true. We also went to bed, which sounds even crazier and you don't have to believe me if you don't want to. 

I think our ethnicities are mostly obvious, Yuko does a good job with that. 

Ahaha, and to clear us of wrongdoing, John told us it was okay to put the last part in - he actually lives down the street from us, and comes over so often we gave him a key. He laughed! You gotta believe me!

So if John is Captain Planet, who's the unlucky sot who gets to be Ma-Ti?

Conrad. I get the feeling

I get the feeling he'll love the free monkey that comes with the ring.

I would guess that Yuko would be 'Heart' 'cause she's the little cute one. =)

I can't remember what her name was though--

Comment by Aido Thu, 08/27/2009 - 18:39

Unfortunately, I think I have to be "Water" because I'm the Asian-Ish-Girl. XD

oh.

I guess I'm not the only one who immediately thought, "With our powers combined...!"

Actually...

I'm curious who would get wind. If we're going by matching up the people by race/nationality, I'm afraid that Ananth will be the one stuck with heart (since Ma-ti was some sort of weird conglomeration of South/Central American, Indian, and whatever other ethnicity Ted Turner thought he missed).

But who among you has roots in the former Soviet Union?

I'm dating Rachelle, whose mother was both in Russia. I guess that means I get it? ^^;

It was a valiant effort, Conrad, but I guess there's just no arguing with complete strangers over the interwebs.

...I don't remember her name either! All I can remember is Minka (wind).

...I sometimes wonder at the flytrap that is my mind. X_X

I am intrigued

Comment by Matt (not verified) Thu, 08/27/2009 - 12:47

I am intrigued at what Captain Race (Captain Multiculture?) would look like. Would he just be a guy who happens to be really knowledgeable about peoples' heritage?

I too am intrigued

Comment by Cassie-Jo (not verified) Fri, 08/28/2009 - 09:08

Yes. And like how Captain Planet is blue and green, he would be a rainbow of all ethnicities and cultures.

And only eats fish.

Comment by conrad Fri, 08/28/2009 - 12:58

Asian eyes, African facial structure, South American skin tone, with a European build. And he only speaks Esperanto.

Not Esperanto, Volapük!

I saw it more as the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers... With John as Zordon.

Comment by SgtDC (not verified) Thu, 08/27/2009 - 11:23

This.

Secondly, yall aren't supposed to talk to each other when you're bored of the internet after not having it for so long.... If anything you should have all signed into some IM, and sat in the same room IMing each other. That way you can at least pretend that all the pain and suffering you went through without the net, was actually well founded.

I'm sensing a Power Rangers/Captain Planet theme coming in.

John: With your powers combined, I am Captain Pl- JohnnyWander!

I'm pretty sure Conrad would be 'caffeine'. Steve would probably be 'music'.

Yeah,

Conrad is DEFINITELY caffeine. See: Monster Java. Conrad can't get enough.

We all know that the planeteers founded green peace, so logically the so.... multiculter-squad would end up founding something equally as ignored, like the UN or something.

All they manage to summon with their super diversity powers is a 19th century white army colonel with plans for Imperialism abroad.
