Why bother dissembling?

We take from them because they are weak, and we are strong.

There is more to Empire than brute thuggery, Sojobo. Take your lessons as a fire scion seriously!

But there are complex layers going on in the power structure of the Fire Nation. If you haven't seen the series, it had some interesting conflicts going on internally. Or at least, it did when I watched it.

That having no real powers apart from flying and some strenght is pretty pointless?
That losing said powers by having some toss a banana skin on you is also so very pointless?
That bullshitting about being a captain and effectively BETRAYING a generation which went through military training just to become blue skinned super heroes is so very wrong?

Or that trash sucks, and that villans have funny names?

You begin to sound like that fool traitor, Iroh!

Does a dragon beg the rhino's pardon before he eats him? Does a shepherd get permission to shear his sheep?

Some men are born to serve, and some to rule. Conquering the weak is not "thuggery," it is reestablishment of the natural order of things.

All I know is I want a flying bison:



Am I right?

Fighting style wise, I'm kinda partial to the Earth Benders Hung Gar (or more specifically according to the DVD 'Tiger Crane') based fighting style. That Northern Shaolin based firebending style is just played out Razz

Also, earth powers are the coolest elemental powers.

Psh no, it's all about Heart man.

Why are there no heart benders? How are we going to summon Captain Planet without a heart bender?

Are you repeating that joke on purpose, or did you miss it before?

I've been up for 30 hours now and I have no interest in reading anything other than the post directly above mine.

Please disregard anything I say until I have slept. May as well disregard everything I say after I've slept as well.

If the Fire Nation ends up being thwarted, it will be because of this sort of attitude. If might alone makes right, then we will breed a societally eugenic world which will, in turn, consume us in our first moments of cultured weakness. And what the hell is an Iroh i've never watched this show
