-Jasper that is funny! Not my American accent (all british people tell me I have a BOXY accent). Maybe a southern American accent... However, I'd rather listen to a british accent any day! Wait... almost any british accent. Put me in Glasgow and I can't understand the McDonalds people LOL.

I have no idea how we start talking about anything. Maddy will know LOL. I think this is all so entertaining because it's so random and I loved the book and I only have you all to talk about it. Even people who have read it, would never understand "THe Hole" and I am really surprized no one I talk to regularly elsewhere has commented on my siggy. Actually... I think i have been AWOL too long!!!!

I know what you mean. ^ I'm the only person I know who's read the HG, and even if someone else had read it, they just wouldn't understand. :lol:

I'm bored, so I'm going to one of those sites where you can see what your name means and see if I can find any HG ones.

I couldn't find the right spelling of Peeta, but all the variations of Peter seemed to mean Rock. Also, couldn't find Katniss, but I got Kat.
Peeter Estonian: Rock
Gale Old English: Strong Wind (teehee :lol:)
Irish: Stranger
Kat Old English: Blessed, Pure, Holy

Also:
Cinaed (like Cinna) Gaelic: Born of Fire
That has to be the coolest one. Scottish: Born of Fire

Hmm, what could this mean? :lol:


EDIT: Sorry for the double post, was meaning to click Preview.

I just looked up Katniss flower and there isn't such a thing, at least now.
I wonder which flower Katniss is then. They're water-based and you can eat them. But I know nothing of flowers, so...

Look here - I googled it and it's arrowhead.

Arrowhead has edible roots and is known by a variety of names: duck potato, arrowleaf, swan potato, wapatoo, katniss, swamp potato and tule potato.

-Jasper I love that you looked up those names!!!!!! I'll even forgive the double post. Cool.

Ah, Fiction.... the things you can do with fiction. come one people Katniss is a flower that will grow 100 years in the future. It has not happened yet.

Well, take the 76 years they've been doing the HUnger Games, and add maybe half a century of oppression before hand, plus the time it took to destroy the continent and make Panem... I'd say maybe 150 years in the future, maximum? Between a hundred and 150, so a median of 125. That would make it... the year 2136 or so.

And katniss is too a real plant, Jenni/-Jasper just googled it. Its really called arrowhead.

dandyvampgirl_13 thanks for doing the math!!!!! You rock!

I give you permission to climb out of the hole... unless you like it in there... :lol: :lol:

all you youngins.... you have no idea what it would take to look up the Katniss info... research at the library, looking through books by call numbers... hopefully finding it after 4 hours of research.

Thank goodness Al Gore created the internet (some of you may be too young to remember that. Al Gore did NOT create the internet, but in faux paus he said he did.)
