I remember that episode of Walker Texas Ranger when he told the kid that he had AIDS. I was a little kid, so yeah. Oh, but to show you how better I am than Chuck Norris, I successfully built a card mansion in a hurricane with one arm tied behind my back while riding a unicycle! Haha!
It's okay. I wasn't offended at all. I don't really know much about India, ironically lol. My dad's from Sri Lanka, and I've never actually been there and I've never really done too much research on it. I have seen some documentaries about India and the water thing, and it's true...not at all offensive.
A moderated group means that the people who are allowed to join are regulated by the group leader. The current leader is Hero of Spirits, but Hero of Spirits is never really online anymore. I can invite you to the group, though, seeing as how I'm a super moderator. You should be able to accept the request in your "Settings" in the top right. It may even display under Notifications.
As for inspiration, not really 'inspiration,' per se. I have several favorite filmmakers - Christopher Nolan, JJ Abrams, The Coen Brothers, Spielberg, etc, but I don't really have anyone I'd like to emulate. I figure being original can get you a long way.
