Fire is the element of power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will, and the energy and drive to achieve what they want.
Earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are persistent and enduring.
Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly concerns, and they found peace and freedom. And they apparently had great senses of humor.
Water is the element of change. The people of the Water Tribes are capable of adapting to many things. They have a sense of community and love that holds them together through anything.
It is important to draw wisdom from different places. If you take it from only one place it become rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, the other nations, will help you become whole. It is the combination of the four elements in one person that makes the Avatar so powerful. But it can make you more powerful too.
Sorry not sorry.

Lies (or lack thereof)
I’ve been dating my girlfriend for a while, and she’s been my best friend for years, and I don’t think that on any given day I lie to her much, or at all. This occurred to me while I was reading a Jareth/Sarah fic where they switch bodies and Sarah is having trouble with Jareth’s body’s physical inability to lie (Jareth is Fae and the fae cannot utter falsehoods). I think I’d be able to handle that well enough. I don’t lie much. Except to my parents; I lie very often to them.
A University of Washington scientist has helped overcome the long-held belief that humans and Neanderthals never mated.
Check it out. It’s an almost good story on Neanderthals. It’s one flaw is that it clings to the ages old “Separate Species” conclusion even as it addresses the best evidence against it.
Here’s an example:
Akey suggests that the old idea of a species as a group that won’t breed with others hasn’t been especially useful. There is a species barrier, but it’s permeable. He said he prefers to think of that barrier as quantitative — i.e., interbreeding doesn’t happen often […]
The point is, Paleoanthropology is NOT a real science. As the story illustrates, there was virtually never a time when the old idea of Neanderthals being an “Evolutionary dead end” with no living relatives wasn’t disproven, and Paleoanthropology simply didn’t care. It chose to ignore the evidence — rather flagrantly — until it was forced to accept it.
…but even now, even accepting the fact that, yes, Neanderthals did leave ancestors, the old and popular models were wrong, they still cling to many of the same old conclusions… “Different species” being one of them.
We share most of our genes with chimps. It’s a given that Neanderthals shared nearly all of their genes with other human populations — those in Africa, Asia or even Oceania. There would have been very little, DNA wise, separating the populations. There would have been precious little, DNA wise, that was truly unique to Neanderthals.
There’s only one dog “Species,” and yet there’s probably more genetic variation between the extremes within that group than there was between Neanderthals and other Human populations, or even between Neanderthals and us today. So why dwell on the “Species” label?
