Taurus is a latin word that means "bull", and it can certainly be argued that they mixed it with its Spanish counterpart: taurus + toro = tauros. So yeaaaah I'd think it wasn't inspired in buffalos precisely.
Thinking about it it's probably after the Taurus star sign depicting a bull. THey tend to just change one letter or two and use it as a Pokémon name, like with Seel for example.

...well, it's probable. But the Taurus consteallation is called like that because the Romans looked at it and saw a bull, and hence they named it with their word for "bull", which is Taurus. So, even if they didn't realize they were using the Latin word for bull... they were :P

inb4 "lol so much bull in this thread"

but yeah you're probably right there... And there are probably more pressing things for us to wonder. Like why Rhyperior can use Surf.

Loads of bull in this thread. Which means that there will be a lot of bullcrap sometime soon.

Oh, logic in the Pokemon world.

..I went to look for a comic about flying on small Pokemon, but then I found

which is a lot more interesting

Nevermind, though, that Doduo can learn Fly.

Well, flying is just falling with style and missing the ground. They never said you had to do it for very long before you fall.

Here's what you were looking for.
But seriously what happened? Did Pokecommunity merge with Pokememes or something /shot

I like how me just posting that comic causes the title of the thread to change.

So does the thread title just change with each topic or what?

Pretty much. Whatever everyone talks about ends up as the title. xD

In English we're reading 1984. I've already read half the book a few years ago but had to return it since I borrowed it from a teacher. I might be one of the only people in the class that read up to the point we were supposed to read to and understood the majority of what I've read without using Sparknotes. I'm in a group and even though at that point I was behind on the reading, I had to explain Big Brother to them, or rather, elaborate more upon it than just "That he's always watching and that he's a god-like figure," which is true, but that's a given...

Near the end of Book 2 now, stopped in the middle of the part where I'm... Uh... Reading a book inside of a book. This is the first time in the book that I really just felt like skimming through it. The paragraphs were huge and the wording seemed unnecessarily complex, (even though I did understand it, WHY ALL THE BIG WORDS) and at that point in the book, it wasn't really adding much to what you already knew... That's what I felt anyway.

Don't you dare make an Inception reference. I know I'm setting myself up for it but don't you DARE DO IT

I just avoid parties altogether. I hate social situations of all kinds.

I'd like to have a surfing Pikachu. Actually, I'd just like to learn how to surf. That way, when I go down to Florida, I can impress all the girls. =D

Never really liked water environments such as the sea or pools. I prefer guitars or soccer.
I'm no good at both though. /cry

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ICE CAR! Hope you enjoy it, make sure you do the hula with a couple of Hawaiian babes. ;D

And I'd love it if my birthday fell on a weekday, actually.
