In my opinion, people these days over-categorize things. It'* human nature to classify anything and everything to such a degree that it becomes unique (at least by its definition). My username is nice and vague. I'm just a resident of the earth...no need for further description or definition. I'm just a terran.

Yeah, I like my avatar. Those are my Bonneville'* headlights, of course.

Can't say I'm a big fan of Star Trek, although I believe the word comes from Latin. From what I understand, Terra means earth, so a Terran would be an inhabitant of earth.

i took german in high school, failed but i did get this nifty nick
"dame" == lady
"morder" == murderer (closest to killer you can get)
"damemorder" == lady killer
my boys in german gave it to me for the school record of 16 girlfriends in a semester
(yes we were bored enough to keep count)
