    Conscious of Sauron's power and wishing to thwart it, she did not use her Ring so long as the One Ring was in Sauron's hands. However, during the Third Age, when the One Ring was lost, she put hers to use in making Lothlórien a fair refuge for the Nandor.

    Are you saying I indicated which color represented more than half? Because if you are, you're the one who is lying.

    And what's more, you're lying about whether I lied or not.

    Irrelevant.

    You also have no right to cast a stone if we are going to go by that standard.

    "These black men," said [Butterbur ...] "They're looking for Baggins, and if they mean well, then I'm a hobbit [...] Nob, he came and told me that two black men were at the door asking for a hobbit called Baggins. Nob's hair was all stood on end." -- The Fellowship of the Ring, LotR Book 1, Ch 10, Strider
    Okay, I can see you as a Gandalf but not Nob. I thought you might be a Frodo or Samwise but, upon reflection, I think Gandalf suits you.

    I am always tempted to make one of those Facebook quizzes for people to find out what Star Wars character they are. I would have pictures of all the cool characters Han, Boba Fett, etc. I would make the quiz taker waste 15 minutes answering pointless questions and then pronounce everyone as Jar Jar Binks regardless of their answers.

    I'm definitely Bill the pony. Too difficult to take on the adventure, left to my own devices with a little good luck, went on to have a great life WITHOUT rings or balrogs or whatnot. Shows up at the last minute to kick someone in the backside for good measure.
    Genuine, willful, aggressive ignorance is the one sure way to tick me off. I wish I could say you were trolling. I know better, and it's just sad.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an

    Suzanimal mentioned that I would be a ranger. Not sure. I'd rather see myself more as a Rider of Rohan. Not as anyone special. Just a horse soldier under Eomer.

    As much as I would like to say I am Strider or will be a Gandolf in the next few years, Phill has the most realistic outlook of us all. We most likely cogs, but damn good ones.

    Also, lol at the fierce argument that broke out over what fantasy characters we resemble.

    You are Gandalf.

    You are a wise person. You know much about the world and often offer your wisdom as advice to others. You are usually right, but that doesn't mean people will always listen to you.

    Proverbs 27:2
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
