Have you read Odysseus in America ? that's a sequel to Achilles in Vietnam . Jonathan Shay. Amazing interpretation of the stories to modern day warfare and it's effect on soldiers. Can't remember which translation he uses. Achilles in was published in early 90's I think and the Odysseus one several years ago. If I had read those in school might have paid more attention to the greek.

I picked up my username at the local motorcycle track because I ride my trek mt bike while the boyz ride them gosh darn motorcycles. I became the Trekchick.
If I'd thought I would be around here this long, I'd have picked a name that was snow or ski related. Somehow I'm not sure that a name change would go over well for me." - Trekchick
I always thought "Trekchick" meant you were willing to go on treks skiing! You just proved it anyway, so what are you talking about? See, your name does make sense. No, there shall be no name change for you! - just like on Seinfeld with the soup.
Look at it this way, would you really want to start at post 1 again? btw, you're getting close to 20k! (note that I was robbed on the platform switchover)
edit: ^^ don't know what's going on. Can't change text back properly. God I hate this editor. Re-invented the wheel but forgot the lug nuts.
