I love whales, my favorite is the Beluga! They just seem so cute and adorable. But I could see a big blue whale swimming through the air. Cool! :smileywink:

Re: What's Your Patronus?

I wish there was a human patronus. I don’t understand why they just have to be animals.

My patronus would be a phoenix and when I scream EXPECTO PATROONNUUM!! There will be fire and all that dazzling song and warmth and beauty , which is exactly like me.
:smileysurprised:

if it were a human patronus I would my patronus will be Storm from Xmen. Then ze dementor will be battling it with my mutant patronus!
Kick butt!

Nah it's Batman. I mean in the stories Batman has kicked the crap out of Superman to many times to count....why you may ask? B/c Batman is a geek like us and he out smarts the dumb jock.

Very welcome Macross. Is your screen name any reference to the Robotech cartoon? They had a run of episodes called the Macross Saga and any time I see your screen name that's what pops into my head.

The reason I've always favored Batman is that while he's really just a highly trained human when it boils down to it he's a bad*ss genius as well. He's manhandled Superman several different times thanks to the man in steel's well known weakness to Kryptonite. When Supes is around it he's just another human and when you compare him to Bats on that level well it's really not a competition. Heck the only guy I really remember ever just handing Bats his butt was The Flash but that's for certain reasons.

Sorry Kreacher not insinuating you have enormus girth just been reading a little to much Dark Tower here lately and that poem plays a big part.
