Question #1 Who are you?

My name is John Clark, 27 years old, a simple minded and loving person at heart.  I live in the USA, down in SE Texas.  I also deal with Aspergers/High Functioning Autism just as the former poster does.

I love learning the language, seeing how simple and modular the language is, and also getting to meet other people that like the movie and language.

Question #3   Where do your alias and profile pic come from:

A bit.  Beginner at best, I was originally involved in Project Ngaynume back in 2010, but real life caught the best of me.

Best stuff about Avatar:  Neytiri backhanding Jake is just hilarious.  Jake's first flight...a total 'oh hell' moment for him.

Reinforced my comittment to helping others, being respectful to mother earth.

Heh, gotta love the 'ol SNES.

Super Metroid was my big thing when I was little. I went outta my way to get every single powerup, figure out every secret move, and get the best ending.

That and Super Mario World. I met my best gaming buddy through that game, and even though we're both in college and don't have much time for games these days, I still pull out my classic consoles (mainly SNES, Genesis/Megadrive, or NES) and we pick an old game and do an all-nighter playthough. Our best record is beating Mario Bros. 3 in one night (~6-8 hours), beating every secret stage, every airship, and getting all the whistles, suits, and special items, and not using any of them ; when we beat the game we had a full inventory of all the whistles and special suits we got.

I also like Actraiser, Final Fantasy IV (Final Fantasy II for the US), Yoshi's Island, Contra III, Super Mario RPG, and Megaman X/X2.

Q: I have 'Celtic' Feet.  (2nd toe is longer than the 1st)


I go back to the Atari and the Texas Instrument keyboard, game plug-in... to TV, system... I remember playing the FIRST NES which was about three times the size of the one most people have, or 6 times the size of the smallest ones now. Has SNES, N64 and a SEGA as well... skipped the GameCube and all hand helds...

I remember playing games like Spaced Invaders, Pac-Man, Mario Brothers, Contra 1, Kid Ikaris. I think the game I spent most time on was Mario Kart 64. Also played Metroid 1 and 2 front to back all stages, even drew the levels on ream paper as we did not have the Nintendo magazine for those levels...

I prefer SIM games on the computer... but tear it up pretty good on Avatar on the XBOX-360 in LIVE mode... XBOX name is Nawm Tsamsiyu.

Your crafts are very useful in the prospect of the real life Na'vi project, if you were interested in contributing to that... just a thought.

And lastly, congratulations on being nominated for NotW.

P.S. Sorry I missed yours, Candace.
