What's your Do-Gooder name? :)

After a lifetime of dissing, including on Beck's TV show, I'm embracing do-gooder, treehugger, etc.

All the labels right-wing conservatives have used to denigrate over the years are words I'm proudly using as much as possible. I decided that after Wishadoo! was dissed by Glenn Beck on his TV show in late 2010. You know, the whole being devoted to compassion; working towards more cooperation and less competition; and advocating for The Common Good is so socialist/fascist/communist (they never seem able to pick one).

I'm Empathic Understanding Pioneer.

10. I've had several shots of brandy...

and I still have no idea what Gorn is.

I haven't tried Googling though.

11. It's from the original Star Trek series. Shit, just read the text...

 

The Enterprise and another alien ship were disabled while engaging each other. Some pervert with god-like powers zapped both captains onto the surface to fight each other with the stipulation that they each would find the raw materials to defeat the other. Kirk made a cannon with diamonds for slugs and, not having killed Gorn, was commanded to do so by the pervert. He refused on the grounds that it would just add to the pervert's entertainment. Both ships were released. Gorn is a DU icon. Small image below...

25. Not too long ago I watched all 3 seasons of the original and then all 7 of the NG.

 

I've got all of the movies in a combination of LaserDiscs and DVDs. I don't think I've ever seen an episode of "Enterprise", "Deep Space Nine" or "Voyager". I'm considering diving into those someday when I have the time. BTW, I got the full season sets off of eBay for a fairly decent price - new and unopened. I imagine an already viewed collection would cost even less.

26. Very cool.

I've never watched the other three shows either.

Congrats on a good ebay find.

21. Gee, this is very odd. Doesn't seem to work for me at all.

My new name came up as "Fuck Glenn Beck".

22. didn't jesus say it was anonymous?

the right hand is not supposed to know what the left hand is doing or maybe the other way around?

i see no advantage to giving my real name when i donate money/help/etc. i can't afford to live up to my best impulses

so i guess you can call me "cash" or "anonymous coward"
