Default Aren't Greek letters fucking cool?

Αα Alpha Νν Nu
Ββ Beta Ξξ Xi
Γγ Gamma Οο Omicron
Δδ Delta Ππ Pi
Εε Epsilon Ρρ Rho
Ζζ Zeta Σσς Sigma
Ηη Eta Ττ Tau
Θθ Theta Υυ Upsilon
Ιι Iota Φφ Phi
Κκ Kappa Χχ Chi
Λλ Lambda Ψψ Psi
Μμ Mu Ωω Omega

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.

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. :-)
