You know that the Actors and Creators of telitubies were caught with over 300 pounds of pot and gay sex tapes?

Not necessarily what I consider good television.

My chosen screenname was already taken when I signed up for Infantry Online, so I took the pansy route- instead of thinking up something decent I just chose a random combination of adjective and noun.

I did, however, invent a lovely little backstory for it.

If you've ever looked closely enough at the label of your favorite alligator-themed sports beverage, you probably noticed that the flavors are named with similar adjective/noun combos (Fierce Berry, Cool Blue, Xtremo Mango, etc.) One of these flavors - the purple one - is actually named Riptide Rush. It was about a week or so after the invention of my new name that the association was made for the first time. "Hey, isn't that a flavor of Gatorade?" would be repeated dozens of times through the following years, and every time the question is asked I respond with this:

'No, Green riptide is not a flavor of Gatorade. It used to be, though. You've probably never heard about it; Gatorade has covered it up pretty well. See, right after their mysterious blend of electrolytes hit it big the scientists who created Gatorade thought it would be wise to expand the line of flavors. They knew that everyone had heard of the product, but they wanted to keep the brand fresh so it wouldn't just be a fad- so, they locked themselves in the lab for days, mixing and formulating to add more punch to Gatorade than ever before. What they emerged with was a green liquid that seemed to glow from within, a bizzare side effect of the incredibly potent chemical blend they had just mixed into the standard lemon-lime Gatorade flavor. When the lab director, an aging but well-respected founder of the enterprise, tasted it, he said the lemon flavor was almost entirely gone- the new beverage packed a powerful lime taste. Pressed for time due to the time they had spent in the lab, the Gatorade employees rushed the new product through marketing and developed a catchy new name for the wonder drink- "Green Riptide." It was moved through so fast that no one else even bothered to taste it. In the frenzy to get Green Riptide to the shelves, immense stress was placed upon the lab staff, and no one thought it unusual that as the process was coming to a close a week or so later the lab director did not show up to work, calling in to complain of a headache. Production started, and a batch of 5000 bottles of glowing, mysterious Green was sent to a small community in Northern Florida- Lake Como. The test market included a summer camp on the lake, and in the heat of summer the active citizens of the town were eager to try this strange new sensation. The Monday after the official test market release, the lab supervisor was again absent, but this time with no phone call. On Tuesday he was found dead in his apartment, where he had been since late Sunday afternoon. the coroner reported that he died of a neural overload, probably due to undue stress. No one thought to make the connection. By Wednesday all 5000 bottles had been sold, and the lab team prepared to make a second batch. They were halfway through the mixing process on Thursday when a man burst into the lab, screaming that they had to stop- something was terribly wrong. In the streets and homes of Lake Como lay 3854 corpses, and in the veins of each and every one flowed Green Riptide. The electrolytes in the drink were too much for the human system to absorb- the energy simply overloaded the brain, frying the consumer alive in a slow and painful death ending days after the first sip. The remaining citizens numbered only a few thousand, and a few can still be found today. They are scattered across the globe in institutions, old folk's homes, and hospitals. The authorities will say that they are delusional, or simply crazy, but the truth is out there. Over four thousand slowly rotting corpses were dumped into the now-tainted waters of Lake Como by Gatorade, and the remaining residents paid off or simply disposed of. Today Lake Como is restricted territory, declared unsafe by government officials paid off by Gatorade- but go for yourself, and see the true face of Green Riptide in the oddly glowing reflections from the lake. Tell everyone you know- Green riptide was a flavor of Gatorade, yes- until it killed all who drank it.

Well, Captain is a character I made up when I was young. He originally was a lego person, who wore all black and a police/officer-type cap. He had like, a black laser gun. After I made him, I got the idea to make a "Captain Crew." This basically was a collection of Captains with different colored gear. They were all identical, beside the color, their weapons, and their vehicles. They each had their own vehicle and weapon that sported their color theme. If I remember correctly, I had Captain (obviously), white captain, brown captain, red captain, maroon/dark red captain, blue captain, and purple captain. The staple of Captain was his hat...but anyway, I just like the idea of having the name Captain, but JUST Captain, nothing else. (No offense, CaptainSlug.)

There was a card game called WARLORD I never played it, but I got ahold of some cards, my brother gave me his I think, and one of the characters (on one card) was called Sjonegaard he was a stone dwarf, I'm a big fan of dwarves, I have read the Hobit 16 times. I used Sjonegaard for a while then I realized you could use "gaard" like a suffix to any name pretty much. and my name IRL is Dan so Dangaard is what I became.
