Name:Tavari
Origin: Former Aldvari military systems
Class: Attack Frigate
Approximate Dimensions:130m x 45 m
Shields: Gravitic
Weapons: Biological Harmonic laser, Chemical high-explosive missiles
Special Equipment: Biological Gravitic Hyperdrive, can absorb energy from Tachyons, Gravitic Sublight Drive
Description: An slightly oversized version of the Timmura used for scouting new locations and as a cheap and quickly produced battleship. They are able to to reproduce with a Timmura, with the offspring either inheriting the Timmura or Tavari genes exclusively. Those who wish to Magically augment a ship should know that these ships tend to have about twice as much Ki as a Timmura, however they also have substantially less control over its gravitic systems.

Name: Pitona
Origin: Former Aldvari secure military systems
Class: Capital
Approximate Dimensions: 240m x 80 m
Shields: Gravitic, Carbon nanotube armor
Weapons: Biological multiple harmonic laser, Chemical High-explosive missles, Accelerated Radioactive decay missiles
Special Equipment: Biological Gravitic Hyperdrive, can absorb energy from Tachyons, Gravitic Sublight Drive, Tractor beam, Biological accelerated decay reactor
Description: The Tavari were modified to contain many more military devices, as well as increased drastically in size. Special genes were added to allow it to metabolize and refine radioactive materials. Normally these materials will simply enhance the ships metabolism, but when refined, the are mixed with a chemical which causes radioactive materials to break down more quickly. This radiation is then absorbed by the ship and converted into a useable form. Can only reproduce with other Pitona class ships. The Tractor beam is a variation of the gravitic engines, moving things toward the ship instead of moving the ship forward. The Nanotube armor comes from the natural carbon the ship absorbs from its diet, as many asteroids contain high amounts of carbon.

Future religions

Name: Scientific Theism
Based on: A mixture of many religions (mostly christian) that were rectified with scientific theory.
Origin Date, place: 2017, Earth, USA
Core beliefs: Long ago, in another Universe near the end of its life, there was only one species in existence, immortal. These people were farther beyond us evolutionarily as we are beyond the first single cell lifeforms to exist on this world. Among these people was born YHWH, who, as an adult, more intelligent than any other, created a universe more complex than any that had been created before. He entered this universe, touring the worlds of his new creation.
He was of such mental strength that many of the worlds he toured rapidly developed life, whether or not he concieously created it. He left the universe, and reentered it a day later. Many years had passed in that dimension, and he altered many worlds and the life thereon. He continued to leave and come back once a day, and once he was finished, he took a day off.
Upon many of these worlds existed sentient beings. YHWH created a race of servant beings on another world near these worlds (in the solar system this was mars), so that the beings on the first worlds could be looked over and protected while they were still primitive. One of the Martian beings, many of whom had wings, Lucifer was born. Among the primitives of Earth, YHWH showed himself to the people as various beings, teaching them slightly different forms of the same thing, so that while each one knew the “truth”, they all had information that the others would need for a complete picture. This however, did not work, as the people filled in the missing information with whatever information they wanted. In general this was done by a group of “priests” who claimed to know more than they actually did in order to gain power.
Lucifer learned that by posing as different beings to different people YHWH was limiting himself. In these forms, Lucifer could defeat him, and, using YHWH's genome, could become the ruler of the universe. He convinced many other “angels” to join him, and they used the technology and genetic advances YHWH had given them to take over these worlds, convincing many of the natives to follow him.

Name: Temple of the Star
Based on: Ancient Thalleen Star worshipers
Origin Date, place: about 1200 B.C.
Core beliefs: There is a star near Thalla which contains/is a sentient being. This star, dubbed Ismathala, meaning “Lord Protector”, by the Thalleen, and Ismahama, meaning “Lord Liberator” in ancient Thalleen by ancient humans who settled on a world orbiting the star called Haman. This Star has powerful abilities, mostly of the Telepathic and Energetic kinds, especially energetic types which deal with fire, plasma, or light. It has been known to send pulses of star matter towards nearby vessels that are hostile to its people.
This Star has helped to liberate slaves from many worlds, and protects those it liberated, as well as the people of Thalla, from attack. He keeps them from being interfered with by more advanced societies.
The highest form of worship for it's people is to help liberate slaves that are being mistreated by their masters.

Name: Temple of the Black Hole
Based on: Inversion of Temple of the Star
Origin Date, Place: Black Hole near Isma. 1342 B.C.
Core Beliefs: A space station was built near a INS Black Hole. The Temple priests enslaved it via joint telepathy, and force it to work for them. They were originally made up of beings that had lost slaves to Isma, and those who wished to profit by shipping slaves from Thalla. This originally included Chigani that had been in charge of Thalla when Isma drove the Chigani off, and they were the ones to first enslaved the Black Hole. They left, however when other species started to move to high levels within the “Black Temple”. The priests use the “Black Hole” to spy on other systems, as it has the ability to sense gravity and ships in hyperspace. The “Hole” is used as a power source for their ships, and sometimes to directly attack followers of Isma or, on a few occasions, Isma itself. The Holes powers include Partrad, Hyperrad, and Anti-matter. Though Isma considers them to be only a minor nuisance, as it defeated The Hole millennia before they came to enslave it, they consider it their highest goal to destroy Isma and enslave Isma's former followers.

A religion that I'll never be able to add to the game without some major modifications.


Name: Dojo of the Dragon
Based on: DBZ
Origin Date, Place: 2019, Earth
Core beliefs: One of the many religions to be formed from stories/show about fictional magic/powers, they believe that the story of DBZ was based on actual people with powers. Through the study of martial arts, these people developed god-like abilities. There are several powers that all followers (called warriors) learn. Followers are divided into classes, based on the characters of DBZ.

Piccolo – You wish to be good because it is convenient. You may have friends or family members who are good, or you may see other benefits (perhaps even monetary) in being good. This class of warriors learn “Jing spear” as well telekinesis.
Vegeta – You are good because of a strong connection to those that are good. This is usually family or friends. You may also wish to prove yourself, either to yourself or to your friends or family. This class of warrior learn Gallic gun (Jing blast), as well as learning to channel anger into greater strength.
Kuririn – You wish to help others. You may wish to improve yourself, prove yourself, or keep up with others, but you would still help others even if you didn't have incredible powers. This class of warrior studies the intricacies of their powers, learning to do more and more complex things. They learn Ki blade and Kamehameha (Jing blast)
Tenshinhan – You wish to protect others, perhaps someone specific. This class of warrior learns telekinesis and how to integrate it into their abilities. Besides basic telekinesis, they also have a “Mental Blast” technique that combines telekinesis and a Ki blast into one attack.
Chaotsu – You have been protected throughout your life, and wish to improve yourself so that you aren't totally helpless or dependent on others. Those of this class learn telepathy and telekinesis.
Goku – You have been strong your whole life, and wish to help others with that strength. Your weaknesses generally include character flaws, like pride or a superiority complex. Those of this class learn the Kamehameha and how to channel anger into greater strength.
Dende – You are generally pure of heart and wish to help others. Those of this class specialize in not having to fight, learning to heal and perform Remote viewing.

Each dojo may be dedicated to one of the sacred warriors, or one of the sacred warrior's group (like Bulma). Regardless of who it is dedicated to, they all have the same classes of warriors, though some more modern ones add a “Trunks” class for those who were raised in the faith and have been taught to protect others. The Master warriors also carry items which allow them to summon neutral and good creatures to come to their aid, the most sacred of which are the seven dragon balls which were created to summon Shenron, a dragon-god which grants the wishes of its followers. Sacred texts include all the Dragonball shows, movies, and manga.

The Two Species of Human

During the last ice age, Humans faced a problem. Humans of that time had a genes which produced a type of neurotransmitter (now called ENT for Enhancing NeuroTransmitter) which amplified the effects of paranormal abilities. Within one of the cave-dwelling villages, a mutation occurred which turned off the gene responsible for the production of this neurotransmitter. The production of this neurotransmitter (ENT-1) approximately doubled the caloric needs of a person to 3k calories or more, not to mention increasing the needed amount of protein, vitamins, and minerals. The deactivation of this gene greatly lowered their nutritional requirements. This gene quickly spread throughout the population and soon the only ones who didn't have the ENT-1 gene turned off were the spiritual leaders, medicine men, and chiefs. Their food supply was almost effectively doubled as the villager now needed only 1500 calories. The villages no longer needed to be 90% hunter-gatherer, allowing them to specialize in other areas, and to expand their food supply to include less efficient food sources.

Elsewhere in another cave system humans underwent a different type of mutation. The first mutation of major concern in this group of humans altered the kidneys, making it so that the ENT-1 was filtered out much more slowly. This decreased caloric needs to approximately 1800 calories, unless they used paranormal abilities, which increased nutrient needs proportionately. Once this gene had spread through the gene pool, a second mutation appeared, which altered the ENT-1 into a more powerful form, called ENT-2. ENT-2 improved telekinetic and energy abilities much more than ENT-1, while amplifying other paranormal abilities about the same amount. This increased nutritional needs, increasing caloric needs to approximately 2100 per day if paranormal abilities weren't used, greatly increasing that number if a person's abilities were used. Because of its high cost in terms of nutrition, this gene spread to a limited number of people, allowing the creation of a warrior class who was genetically separate from the other, citizen class.
The citizens of these underground cities used their powers to grow food and mine ore, allowing them to expand their technology while living completely free from external dangers.

After the ice age was over, the ENT-2 race of humans expanded their society above the ground, eventually creating many great cities, including the island nation of Atlantis. The ENT-1 deactivated humans expanded across the surface of the Earth, eventually expanding to every section of Pangaea. When the ENT-2 humans, viewed as gods by the primitive ENT-1 deactivated humans, left to find a new world where they could expand their society and the great City of Atlantis was no longer needed, the former inhabitants moved the city under water, covering it in a transparent high-strength material and moving the island to the bottom of the nearby sea. Eventually, when the Hat'di returned a group of genetically engineered humans to Earth, many of which had the ENT-1 gene reactivated, some Atlantians, as the ENT-2 humans were now called, became the mates of these engineered humans. When the Hat'di returned and moved them, many of these half Atlantian children went with their engineered parents to the new world, while few of the peaceful scientific Atlantians chose to go with their mates.

You slaver, why would you want to join the Temple of the Black Hole? Only evil people do that. Or you could just want free antimatter for your space ship.

Notice how the "Dojo of the Dragon" started the same time as the aliens and magic were revealed? I figured alot of religions would start up around then because of both. Not to mention that any religion that already mentions aliens will get more followers. There are people now who base entire "magic" studies on a variation of DBZ, so I figured I'd make it a religion.

besides, you would end up being a follower of Lorrisism and you know it. Buck Lorris!

Another way to get “magical powers”:

Since carbon-based life began on Earth, or perhaps before that, there have been energy based lifeforms on Earth. Many of these are no more complex than a virus, though some are as complex as people, or even more advanced. These lifeforms were often confused with demons, though true demons are either life or emotional energy-based lifeforms from another, spirit dimensions. Their matter-based offspring and lifeforms like them are also considered demons.
Some of the most primitive forms of these energy based lifeforms evolved to feed on and utilize life energies, including emotional energies. In order to have a steady supply of these energies, however, they needed to survive within a host. Those that were able to give their host something in exchange for this power, as a symbiont, were rejected by the host less than those that were parasitic. The parasitic forms evolved to live in a host longer, gaining ways of tricking the immune response or resisting the immune response which were much better than the symbiotic ways. Most parasitic forms eventually gained ways of extending the hosts viability, though they are not considered symbiotic, as it damages the host too much.
The Symbiotic Energy-Based Lifeforms slowly grew in complexity. Their hosts evolved to be better suited as a host, and eventually most of these hosts evolved to became a separate species. Those host species that had abilities based on “positive” emotions generally became “holy” species, such as the various angelic forms, or holy animals. Those host species with abilities based on “negative” emotions became demon races, mostly INS, though some were HINS or even sentient. Some of these abilities eventually became “magical” in nature, doing things that were much easier for energy-based lifeforms to do than for carbon-based lifeforms to do, such as creating fire.
When one becomes infected with one of these energy-based lifeforms, either symbiotic or parasitic, the body responds to it with a type of immune response which is different than the standard one. Eventually these energy based lifeforms will either die out or reach an equilibrium point within the host. For a parasitic life form this equilibrium point is reached when the immune response of the host is completely suppressed toward the life form. For a Symbiotic life form this is a point at which the body shuts down its own immune response to the life form, and the life form is able to exist at a low population within the host. The equilibrium point will slowly increase as the body becomes more and more accustomed to the life form, generally through use of its abilities.
These lifeforms can be transferred from one carbon based life-form to another through the bodily fluids and/or tissues. It is most commonly transferred from mother to child, though it can be transferred by other means, such as blood transfusions and, on rare occasions, by eating the flesh of a host. The later usually doesn't result in enough of the virus being transferred to allow the equilibrium point to be reached.

I've been playing pokemon a lot recently, so hear's an idea for a pokemon game. I may turn it into a story later, though not pokemon, as fan fiction can't be published.


You wake up to the sounds of alarm bells in a 3d world. Someone comes in your room and orders you to come with them to the Stables. There you meet your father “the General” and the 6 other teenagers on the base, the 7 of you being from 13 to 16 years old. At the stable your father informs you that your neighboring nation (Johto) is is attacking your nation (Canton) using a strange new device called an apricorn ball. With these balls they were able to bring thousands of Pokemon with them from Johto, making the invasion feasible.
The seven of you each choose a baby pokemon and it follows you as a pet and friend. These are fire, water, grass, bug, bird, normal, and fighter type. There are also eggs which some of you can take with you, as he doesn't want them to fall into enemy hands. He asks the seven of you to take an encrypted message to the other military bases in the area to get troops to drive away the invasion. You have to try and break through the enemy lines to the other forts.
In order to fight you also receive a sword, a gun, and explosives as well as “remember” your training with them, martial arts, telepathy, and telekinesis. You can also learn about machines. Later, you can gain fire, water, electric, healing, plant, and light powers by turning various size evolution stones into magic items. These are the fire, water, thunder, moon, leaf, and sun stones respectively.
You befriend other pokemon by giving them treats which vary by type and diet. You can also talk to pokemon via telepathy. There are several types of Pokefood cubes in the game, including carnivore, omnivore, herbivore, micro-flora and “rich soil” varieties. Different pokemon require different types of food. You can also get various berries, vegetables, meats, carbs (bread, pastas, etc.), and drinks. These can be cooked, eaten by you, or fed to your pokemon in place of pokefood. Pokemon have to be fed periodically, though those in apricorns (and later pokeballs) only have to be fed rarely, as the balls put them in a type of stasis.
Pokemon are effected differently by different types of food, giving them bonuses or weaknesses based on what you feed them. They also have a favorite food which has twice the bonus effect when you feed it to them. Their favorite food cannot be one that hurts them.
Eventually you are ambushed by the Johto troops and knocked out. Any pokemon you have with you are sent to the stables in a fort they captured, the one you were sent to with an encrypted message. When you wake up, you have to break into the stables and get your pokemon back and set the prisoners, mostly former soldiers at this fort, free. All of you then need to get the fort's pokemon back, though now they are in apricorn balls. Once you recover the fort's pokemon, as well as a few pokemon from Johto, you start to leave the fort. You are ambushed by other Johto troops. In desperation (maybe a cutscene video) you throw one of the apricorn balls that you couldn't earlier. Out of it comes a higher-level pokemon (level depends on how strong the enemies are). It is mad that it was captured, and gives you the option of either releasing it (push the release button) and any other pokemon that are in apricorns or fighting it (press to punish button, which causes it to break free).
If you choose to release them all the ones from the fort team up with the people on your team and the ones from Johto join the higher-level pokemon (maybe a legendary). They then attack the Johto troops, who refuse to release their pokemon, as the pokemon would turn on them as well. Once Johto troops are defeated, all of their pokemon are released, leaving a broke apricorn ball behind. This makes it much easier to reclaim the fort.
If you choose to fight, the higher-level pokemon turns on you too, and you have to fight it and the Johto troops. Plus, any time a Johto troop (or one of your own troops with a Johto pokemon) is defeated, the Johto pokemon are released and you have to fight them too.
Eventually you either wake up in a trashed fort with dead and fainted people and Canto pokemon all over the place (and Johto pokemon if you sided with them) or you defeat the Johto troops and reclaim the fort. If the fort was trashed it will slowly be rebuilt. The Fort will allow you to trade with it, so you can replenish your supplies. It will also send some troops and pokemon to a staging area near the Johto troops, either now or when the fort is rebuilt.
The higher-level pokemon at the fort moves into the wilderness with his allied pokemon. If you freed him, you are his ally. If you refused to free him (hit the punish button) he is your enemy. As his ally you will be able to hire (or care for) the pokemon that serve him. As his enemy, you will be able to fight his pokemon and loot them when they are unconscious.
Eventually you will need to go to every fort either to free it (in the beginning) or to convince it to send troops to break the enemy lines. The forts that you couldn't get to in time eventually freed themselves, though they were severely weakened in the process. They will need your help to rebuild and resupply so that they can send troops and pokemon.


A few of the places you can go in the game:

Farms: They grow all manner of foods, like berries and vegetables. They also produce wool, milk, and cotton.
Hatcheries: They collect pokemon from the seas and rivers and kill the useless ones, like Magikarp (who wants them anyway). This produces various types of Fish meat.
Slaughterhouses: Euphemism to come later. They collect useless land pokemon (Ratata, etc) and turn them into types of meat.
Crystal caves: Where crystals are mined. Different crystal caves produce different types of crystals.
Mines: Mines and refines Iron, gold, silver, and copper.
Jewelers: Sell crystals and jewelery in town. Also turn refined and crystals into jewelery.
Smiths: Sell weapons and armor. Also sell ammunition and gun powder.
Grocer: Sells food.
Restaurants: sells prepared foods.
Poke merchant: Sells Pokemon food, treats, and the like.
Pet store: Sells baby pokemon as pets. This only includes the less intelligent ones, though. Also sells eggs.
Doctor: Heals wounds with Health magic and various medicines. The closest thing to a pokecenter in the game, though it costs money to use.
Bookstores: Sell books about pokemon, as well as books on powers and abilities for you and your pokemon.
Clothier: Sells clothes, turns wool and cotton into cloth. Makes clothes and light armors from leather, wool, and cotton.

I think I'll start posting Symbiotic Energy-Based Lifeforms since I have ideas for several, as well as various demons / elementals / angelics / fairies , etc. which have them.

Specific Symbiotic Energy-Based Lifeforms (SEBL)

Common name – Spellcraft
Famous people believed to have had it – Leonardo DiVinci (creativity side only), H.P. Lovecraft
Groups with it – Family lines from around the world, including all races. Tends to be fairly rare in modern times, especially among those of European and Middle Eastern ancestry, due to the distrust of those which used magic, especially spells.
Powers it contains – In its most basic form it helps make your imagination more real. In the beginning this amplifies creativity in proportion with your determination and courage, both of which are emotions based heavily on willpower. After it is developed it will begin amplifying the effects of mental portion of spells, making them more powerful, or allowing them to use fewer, or possibly no ingredients. Eventually it will allow you to sense the magical and medicinal properties of various ingredients.

Specific Parasitic Energy-Based Lifeforms

Common Name – Faustian Talent
Famous People believed to have had it – Many musicians, especially rock stars.
Groups with it – Commonly farmed by demons and other beings (especially Linan Sidhe) for use in trade with humans in “Faustian deals”.
Powers it contains – It reconnects areas of the brain that haven't been connected since early childhood, effectively making you more creative. This is because you are able to see connections between things that other, sane, people can't. It feeds on Ki. It will slowly increase how much Ki it requires as it increases in strength. On the negative side it decreases intelligence and causes minor brain damage. This, combined with the stress of being famous and the drain on Ki causes many to turn to various intoxicants, such as alcohol and marijuana for the pain and stress, or stimulants for the lost Ki. This usually causes them to die even faster than the parasite would.

A SEBL:

Common name – Microwave beam
Famous people believed to have had it – Possibly a famous Psychic or two, though it is usually fatal in humans.
Groups with it - “The Heaters”. They are a group of ENT-2 humans that live in groups in most major cities. (200-300 in New York City)
Powers it contains – In its most basic form it allows you to absorb microwave radiation. After you absorb enough microwave radiation, It will change, allowing you to project a beam of microwaves from your hand. This beam reacts with barriers as if it was a Light based attack, but causes fire damage to carbon-based lifeforms, and Electric damage to robots and silicon based lifeforms. Eventually it allows you to either shoot a beam of Infrared energy out of your hand (light based, but causes strong Fire damage) or focus the microwave radiation in the air for tactical uses (cook food, torture, shock robots, etc.).
Feeds on anger. When you first get the power, you will generally get the ability to generate microwaves before you can focus them or reabsorb them. In the vast majority of cases this results in a person cooking themselves alive whenever they get angry. In ENT-2 humans, though, the ability to absorb microwaves usually develops strongly and quickly enough to let you reabsorb any microwave radiation you produce before learning to channel it.

Common name – Fire Pulse
Famous people believed to have had it – none, human infection generally results in spontaneous human combustion
Groups with it - many weaker demon races, though most never get past Stage 2.
Powers it contains – At first it allows you to amplify the Fire (heat) in your body, creating a brief pulse of fire in your hand. With practice it will let you create a pulse of fire which you can throw from your hand. Later you will be able to feed on fire (absorb it) to restore your Ki. The pulse of fire will slowly be able to be sustained longer and longer. Eventually you can turn that pulse into a “flamethrower” type attack, similar to the Flamethrower power. In the most powerful of hosts the fire will get hotter and hotter until it is blue, then white.
This SEBL is powered off of Anger and hatred.

Common name – Energy adaptation
Famous people believed to have had it – none
Groups with it – some angelic, fairy, and demon races
Powers it contains – This SEBL lets you adapt to various energy attacks and other concentrated forms of energy. Eventually it will let you absorb the energy, converting it to Ki. The main weakness of this SEBL is that it is useless against non-energy and negative energy attacks. Some of the more powerful demons have both this and the Fire Pulse SEBL, making them quite formidable as foes. Special techniques were developed for stimulating the development of this power, and of separating it from other powers, as it is not very dangerous in humans.
Feeds off of courage and the desire to protect others. Adaptation only occurs when you are injured, though, so you will have to become injured to improve it.

Name: Windermere
Government: Communist/Libertarian, Independent
Class: D
Gravity: 1.38
Description: The 13th planet to be colonized via Hyperrail, it was settled by people aboard the S.S. Windermere (named after the largest lake in England). The ship found itself almost ten lightyears off course when it emerged from Hyperspace. The ship's engineers calculated that they only had enough supplies left for just over 2 lightyears of travel, without dipping into the colony supplies. The crew decided to head for the nearest star system and hope that there was an inhabitable world in that system.
Within this system they found a class D world near the inner edge of the system's habitable zone, and they named the world for their ship. Beside a freshwater lake on the northern continent they founded a community. Leaving most of the people aboard in cryostasis and the ship in orbit, they had soon planted large crops along the banks of the lake. The plants on this world fail to grow properly, with most becoming deformed and sickly. The biologists tract it down to a type of chemical in the soil which interferes with the growth cycle of most plants. They are forced to use nutrient extractors to gather nutrients from the unhealthy plants, and protein and fats from the primitive invertebrates swimming in the planets seas. A protein harvesting group is settled on the bank of the nearest sea almost one hundred kilometers away.
Eventually all of the settlers are taken from cryostasis and they begin a life on the surface. However, due to the scarcity of food, the government is forced to control the food supply and anything that can interfere with it. The government also had to form a large number of government jobs in order to insure the food supply. This means that 90% of the world's economy is government controlled. The other 10% are a few small-time businesses that perform desired but unnecessary services or produce desired but unnecessary products. In opposition to this, the government has very few regulations. Almost all “drugs” are legal there, as well as many other activities which other worlds have banned. The laws which are the same here tend to be those that prevent harm to others.
This world didn't come into contact with other human worlds until 2120 when a scout ship hoping to find a new inhabitable world to sell arrived. This led to trade routes between Windermere and other worlds. Neither government, Alliance or Empire makes a serious attempt to get this world to join, however, as there economy is too weak to be of much importance.
Increased gravity means that the people of this world are stronger then most humans, and strength, endurance, and durability genes are quite popular here.


Also, the name of Admiral Robinson's ship should be the Massachusetts. I meant it to be named after the state that MIT was in. I mistakenly thought that MIT meant Michigan Institute of Technology.

You slaver, why would you want to join the Temple of the Black Hole? Only evil people do that. Or you could just want free antimatter for your space ship.

Notice how the "Dojo of the Dragon" started the same time as the aliens and magic were revealed? I figured alot of religions would start up around then because of both. Not to mention that any religion that already mentions aliens will get more followers. There are people now who base entire "magic" studies on a variation of DBZ, so I figured I'd make it a religion.

besides, you would end up being a follower of Lorrisism and you know it. Buck Lorris!

"Buck Lorris" is a "Chuck Norris" clone so he doesn't sue me/ dropkick me across a room. If you don't know who Chuck Norris is, he's an actor in some action shows on TV. There are a lot of sayings out there about him, jokes really.
