Typhon? Why would you name a Buell after a Greek Deity?

Old school stuff.

Have you been playing Titan Quest, or just translating Ovid's Metamorphosis back to ancient Greek?
Ever read Zelazny's "Creatures of Light and Darkness"? The Iliad?

Modern "education" tsk tsk. apparently students don't know any Greek mythology. Heck they can't read, add or subtract. But they do know that teachers are underpaid! Only the "important" things are taught.

Well, I was never self-abusive enough to wade through all that stuff. Sometimes I wish I had though. A few Greek plays and some selected writings of the classics is as far as I've gone. We could probably benefit from more classical education and less touchie-feelie self-esteem driven nonsense in school. People would learn that many of the questions we face today are no different than they were thousands of years ago. Especially political/social ones.

Enola Gay?

'Cause if it don't fly then it'll be the biggest bomb since Nagasaki... or at least maybe the Rune.
