Aren't Greek letters fucking cool?

Ηη Eta Ττ Tau
Θθ Theta Υυ Upsilon

Seriously! Look at them! They're marvelous.

Oh wait, this is the backroom forum. (admin's note: Not anymore!) Better make this political...uhm...fuck Athenian democracy.

Anyways, look at that letter, omega: Ω

Seriously....Ω!

Ω!

Isn't it fucking great?

Did you know that the ancient greek word for man is anthropos? It looks really cool in Greek letters, too: ανθροπος

Come on, "man" versus "ανθροπος", who wins? "ανθροπος" of course!

Did you know that in ancient Greek, depending on the context of a noun, the definite article AND the adjective AND the noun change? Like, check it out man:

το καλος δορος: The Beautiful gift

but to say "Of the beautiful gift":

του καλου δορου

Isn't that fucking cool as hell? YEAH!

P.S.: Doesn't ω look like an ass?

stating one political thing when your main message is completely different is not going to persuade me to keep it in the backroom. Therefore I have moved it to the talk of the Town forum.

Always been a fan of Omega myself.

Wow
 
Remind me not to post drunk anymore; that was quite a silly post :o

You won't exactly encounter them in your average day.

Unless you sell gyros, or live in a frat house.

Well, as an Electrician, I have to use all these symbols, so of course I love Greek letters. :-)

Hell no, alcohol and internet ftw ! No really, me and some friends, last summer, held a drunk Super Mario Bros 2 tournament. It was awesome. Yes, we put the whole thing on a VHS tape :).

Seriously, Greek letters are awesome. :P Drunk or not.
