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

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.

Or

"1125R Proper"

Since there's a Ulysses, maybe this should be called the Achilles. And it's Achilles' heel would be?
