So, in a lively discussion amongst the Reds, I came upon an idea.

Choose a public figure, decide which faction they would be in and support your decision with an argument.

We talked about the Mythbusters and I decided that both Jamie and Adam would probably start in Red (Jamie likes organization, Adam likes blowing stuff up) but I figured that eventually Jamie would gravitate towards Purple. Adam would stay red for the duration because, well, he likes blowing stuff up and so do we. I did not parse Grant, Tori and Kari.

Got a counter argument? Let's hear it.

Or pick another figure and parse it out.

** Note, this is not any sort of an attempt at trolling, this is more an exercise in defining factions and seeing how various people fit into those definitions.**

Blowing things up to kill people versus blowing things up in the name of SCIENCE... yeah, I'm gonna have to say they'd be Blue. All of them.

I could see most of them going Blue but the chaos would drive Jamie bonkers in about an hour. There is simply no way he would be able to stand it.

Besides, Red doesn't blow things up to kill people, we blow things up to avoid having to kill people.

There are no right or wrong answers, there are only arguments to support a given opinion.

Blue. It's straight up our alley. And he could run his lab however he saw fit. Part of the "anarchy" is that you don't bother other people. A "your rights end where mine begin" sort of thing.

Okay then, how about other public figures?

Say:
Mel Gibson
Paris Hilton
Carrottop (the freaky, freaky buff crazy one)
and......
Phil Collins

Or offer up some of your own. I'm less interested in my example group than it what kind of arguments others might make for other folks.

Chris Farley

I could see him going Red for the access to the grog on Tortuga, but then again he would be great in Green. Can't you just see him as Chancellor Eduart.

Mel Gibson would be Red, no doubt.
I completely discount his racism out of the factoring, but even without that the guy's a maniac. Red!

Now the real question is...where would Harrison Ford be?

I can see Purple for the artist in him.
I can see Red for the action in him.
I can see Green for the amount of money he's earned.

Heh.

Purple for sure, Ford would be a great fit. It was his art that earned him his money, it was his art that showed his joy in action, and it was his joy of the art that drove him to direct.

I actually see Harrison Ford more of a Blue. A renegade, scientist, crazy man. Doesn't answer to anyone but himself.

He's totally a bloo. :blueflag:

I agree with that analysis. Renegade, loves making things, prefers being alone, iconoclastic.

Jack Nicholson, on the other hand, is Purple. An actor's actor, temperamental artist, loves to party.

Who says an artist has to be around people. Ford totally fits purple, and he might enjoy being alone but still fits with purple.

Nathan Fillion would be Purple because of our parties and our wacky sense of humor.

He would be blue because of our nomadic lifestyle and emphasis on personal liberty.

Uh, Harris?

Nathan Fillion would be Purple all the way. He's just too big a ham for any other faction.

Mal Reynolds would be Blue or Indie.

Unless you want to tell me he's also Doctors Adam Mayfair and Jim Pomatter, then yes, I'm acting as if they're two different people.
