    i clearly have a affinity for the elements. (just look at my avatar) (ha! “avatar”. irony.) what i cant understand is why an “Avatar” can make rocks fly. i mean, i know they can control earth, but why can they make it fly? dirt doesnt fly. it can rise up, roll, sink, shake ect, but it cant fly. they can make water turn to ice, because ice is still water, i get that, but making earth fly would be like making water burn. water cant burn.

    wow. thanks man. i think that was the most serious, informative, non-sarcastic answer ive ever received here. love the water/blood thing. thank you.


    I’d say give it a go, be sure to go with Avatar: The last airbender (the legend of korra is crap tbh) If you wanna get to the good stuff skip to book 3

    Take note it’s a nickelodeon cartoonseries, so the violence is limited, but the story and humor is solid in the first series
