The Carolina Parakeet was the only parrot species native to the eastern United States. It was found from the Ohio Valley to the Gulf of Mexico, and lived in old forests along rivers. It was the only species at the time classified in the genus Conuropsis. It was called puzzi la née ("head of yellow") or pot pot chee by the Seminole and kelinky in Chikasha.

The last wild specimen was killed in Okeechobee County, Florida, in 1904, and the last captive bird died at the Cincinnati Zoo on February 21, 1918

Febuary 21, 1918

21/2/18


We've been looking for a name, and I think we've found it. Let's honor our fallen winged brothers.


The ST/Pyro build is now "Carolina Parakeet."

Edit: Link to a version of the build added. Oil Slick is included, but whether you take it or not depends on how you feel about the current state of mitigation. You should be able to figure out the major points of the build, and aside from that a few of the points are pretty flexible.

Oh it'll catch on.

In fact, it already has caught on.

Go through every post where ST/Pyro or 21/2/18 is mentioned. Trungalung and myself are going to be two of the largest contributors (and the "creator," who's name I can't remember). If me and Trung do it, it'll catch on.


Besides, this is the MMO community. We love zany names. Name, off the top of your head, the name of a popular WoW arena comp. I guarantee you wont be able to think of anything "serious" sounding, but something like "African Turtle Cleave" sticks in your brain forever.

Carolina Parakeet. It's infectious. It already has its inescapable fingers on your soul.

I think it is comical, it's a good name for the build. I'm running the CP Build! It's pretty catchy.

Now, I question how or why such information was googled. But what people do on the internet is none of my business....

Can someone please link this build? It sounds interesting.

Edit: Also, IGC or CGC?

Something like that. Close enough anyway I just slapped it together.

Important points are: Flame Shield, Jet Charge, Shield Vents in Shieldtech; Superheated Rail and Prototype Particle Accelerator in Pyro. Everything else is filler/personal taste.

I am in to some very interesting ****.

edit: Why on earth do they censor a slang term for the adult film industry? It is practically the 5th food group of the American lifestyle and has driven technology forward for over 30 years.

We should be celebrating not censoring!
