Thank you! An interesting topic and something where I can write about :)

I do not believe in idolizing people or following examples, but sometimes in history there are individuals who might display similar traits to us, and therefore seem like a "mascot".

Peter the Great was the Tsar and Emperor of Russia reigning for 42 years.

He was rebellious, disobedient and this made him creative in every sense:
He opened his country to the rest of the world and increased its cultural heritage in many areas, contributing to its multicultural and multilinguistic identity.

His own city, St. Petersburg, was inspired by... his Dutch adventures.

He often traveled around Europe anonymously, revealing his true identity only occasionally, and did manual labor in shipyards to learn how to build ships and mixed with the common ordinary people.

I haven't created my own city, and I haven't contributed to any country, but his creativity and energy, his rebellious and sometimes "childish" attitude against tradition despite being the ruler of the biggest country in the whole world, are a deep source of inspiration to me.

Why "Greater"? Because it rhymes :p

Wasn't he also petty and childish, and usurped by his wife?

I picked my username because I am an avid fan of Team Fortress 2 (download it, it's now free to play!). It's a very silly first person shooter: it's not realistic at all, and, what's more, the two teams fighting each other are just a bunch of idiots who were hired to kill each other. The reason? Irrelevant.

The two teams are RED and BLU, and each of the nine classes do very different jobs. As the medic, I run around, healing people and buffing them and stuff.

Dungeons and dragons :) one of my best friends from high school gave me the name 'Finaille Nailo' for an upcoming game we would be starting with a few friends and one of their dad's. I shortened it down to Finaille or Fin and it kinda became my online persona :).

Cept nobody knows how to pronounce it right :dry:. Fin as a fish, ale as in ginger ale. Put it together! It is not finale, fin-aly... grrr... the only reason I'm patient with it is because it does look confusing.

Two reasons: one - because there is a "Z" in the middle of my first name, and two: because I adopted "Z" as short form of a nasty nickname that the bullies used on me when I was younger. Rather than letting them hurt me with it, I chose to embrace the thing instead. I have been "Z" ever since.

Based on Voltaire's Candide. Dr. Pangloss was the eternal optimist (to a fault) and I can be a bit like that myself, though I try hard to balance it with a healthy dose of realism occasionally.

"The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true." - J. Robert Oppenheimer

Stole mine from The Mote in God's Eye, only found out about the car dealership much, much later. Basically, it's a figure from an alien mythology, who saves the day *because* he's crazy. The aliens are stuck with a problem they *know* is unsolvable, so only a crazy person would try to solve it. By their standards, all humans are Crazy Eddies.
