| Orooooooo! |
PLEASE NOTE: THIS ORO PAGE IS CURRENTLY NOT TAKING ANY SUBMISSIONS.
Sorry guys! I'm just a little burned out. *sweatdrop*
Signs of the Rurouni from all over the world. Ha ha ha! (Yes, I'm
well aware it means "gold" in other languages, but hey, it still cracks me
If you happen to have an ORO! pic of your own....Please! In the name
of SCIENCE, send it on in!
I would prefer it if you took the pictures yourself. It's more fun
that way. But if you found the pic online, please include the website URL
where you found the pic, so I can give them proper credit.
Use the same e-mail address I have listed for fanart submissions.
You'll get credit for your sighting, of course.
SIGHTING INFORMATION |
| History of the Oro |
This sighting was recorded for posterity by hakubaikou while on vacation
with her family in Northern Cali. The sign was spotted after many hours
of wearying road travel. Pic taken on May 25, 2004. Unfortunately, HB's
family did not have time to stop for further investigation.|
This sighting took place on May 27, 2004 at Fisherman's Wharf in San
Francisco. The short time interval between this sighting and the one from
two days earlier leads HB to suspect that Oro! signs may possibly migrate
in herds. |
Said to be "One of the Ten Most Playful Towns in the U.S.", this Oro
sighting was brought to HB's attention on Aug 02, 2004 thanks to
RoseThorn. HB doesn't think she's ever seen the word "oro" pop up quite
so many times on one website before. Hmmm. Maybe this is where all the
Oro! signs originate from. Anyway, the people in the photos all look
really happy. But then again, who wouldn't be happy to have a Kenshin
expression as their town name?|

Thanks to kenji nakamura for sending word of this Oro, sighted on
November 2, 2004 in Oro Bay. Previous assumptions that Oros originate in
Oroville have now been called into question. Perhaps Oros merely migrated
to that town from this secluded bay. This would support HB's theory that
they do indeed migrate. Interesting. Thanks for the screencap, kenji.
At any rate, this Oro was found in a game (Pacific Fighters) on a map
near New Guinea. That means one of two things. Either the makers of the
game have been taken over by Oros. Or New Guinea has.
The mystery of the Oro has apparently even infiltrated South American pop
culture as seen in this evidence sent in on November 4, 2004 by observer
Chococat. The CD cover of an ABBA album clearly has been taken over by RK
madness. (A pity the music inside doesn't reflect the same condition.)
This clearly shows that Oro's have at some point in history, migrated much
farther South than even HB originally suspected.
Even more impressive than the ABBA CD cover is this picture, also sent in
by Chococat. Yes, believe your eyes. It is indeed a picture of a gigantic
bottle of a South American drink called Oro. The astounding discovery
here is that one can actually bottle and consume Oro! In other words, it
is not only something that leaves one's mouth as a sound of surprise, it
can actually be captured, liquified, and then go the opposite direction
and enter one's mouth as well. Astonishing. Simply astonishing. |
One also would suspect that bottle size must be directly proportional to
how surprised the person who originally uttered "Oro!" was at the time
he/she stated it. In this particular case, with the bottle being several
stories tall, it must have been a very surprised person indeed.
And if one considers that passersby who see this bottle might in
turn utter various exclamations of "Oro!" themselves.... One can see how
such bottles could be perpetuated and mass produced at an exponential
An interesting side note. Notice how the Oro drink still
manages to retain an orangish tint reminiscent of the hair colorings of
the original "Oro!" exclaiming rurouni. Fascinating.

On December 5, 2004, oro hunter Rose Thorn sent in evidence of an
astonishing discovery. Oro's, which were previously thought to be
simplistic creatures, are apparently far more advanced than scientists had
ever imagined. |
Oro's which had been assumed to merely wander around in herds grazing
here and there, are now known to be sentient and proficient enough with
human technology to the point where they are capable of installing cable
TV and provide internet services.
This discovery is mind blowing. More on this in the next post....

And here we see that some Oro's have banded together to form a software
company. One wonders where these innocent Oro's learned such skills? Did
they pick up the knowledge while migrating? Did they learn it in
Oroville? Or perhaps in Oro Bay near New Guinea?
And just where, exactly, did these Oro's get the funding for their
company? Observer Nikki sends us a link to one possible answer: an Oro
bank. This Banco de Oro is based in the Phillipines, which is
geographically quite close to New Guinea. Coincidence? I think not.
Rose Thorn ||
All these new findings definitely call for more research. And Rose Thorn
must have known this since she was good enough to start our investigation
by running a search on Google. The results are quite incredible:|
Oro are sold on eBay. I wonder just exactly what the difference between
a "new & used" Oro is....
And as for that very last ad on the list.... Oh... my ... goodness....
| Oro Culture & Traditions|
The discovery of technologically advanced Oro has led certain scholars to
study Oro culture in more depth in an attempt to discover just how current
Oro civilization came to be.
One finding, as reported by centauri on Dec. 13, 2004, reveals that
Oro apparently have a rich tradition in dance. This would make sense
since dancing is associated with music. And music is associated with
mathematics. And mathematics is associated with both banking and computer
No wonder the Oro were able to come up with internet services as

As with any culture, food plays an important part of Oro civilization.
And apparently, as found by Aurora Redwinters, Oro culinary arts have
infiltrated popular Western travel spots such as Disney World. The
"Fuente del Oro" (Fountain of Oro) restaurant is apparently rated as
having two Mickey heads according to this website. Hmmm. Not sure
exactly what two Mickey heads means, but.... Interesting. |

Of course, as with most cultures, Oro's also seem to be interested in
preserving physical beauty as seen on this cosmetics site.... Do Oro's
age? Do Oro's get wrinkles?
Of course, the mystery here lies in just what these products do for
Oros. After all, no one to this date has actually seen a live Oro yet.
So far, our only evidence of actual Oros have been the pictures of them in
their liquid orange Oro! drink form...

... Or their powdered packet form as seen in this Oro coffee site. One
wonders how much pressure must be applied to turn an Oro into powder. One
shudders at the (rather violent) thought....
