    Mine is beacuse I like sci-fi so wanted a sci-fi hotmail address that included my real name.

    However, I don't like my real name being shown so I just decided to use androidkiller beacuse it sounds cool.
    Lovely, however is it possible to kill an android? I mean it isn't alive to begin with is it? Or would you mean artificial intelligence and the saying 'cognito ergo sum'???

    Well what happened to the cyborg in Alien 1?
    If it runs out of its precious white liquid, I think it stops functioning.

    Bishop in alien 2 is a better cyborg, he gets torn in 2 by the alien queen and white liquid goes everywhere. It is very lovely.

    Vasquez in Alien 2 rocks. She is mexican in origin and kicks the crap out of all the men. She dies, haha another mexican revolutionarist dead.

    ...and the saying 'cognito ergo sum'???
    'Cognito'? As in the latin for 'conspicuous'? I think you mean 'cogito ergo sum'.

    Anyway, with regards to the possibilty of killing artificial life: Deus ex machina...

    I'm not quite sure now to be honest. Though I always thought it was 'cognito' *shrugs* stranger things have happened. I think the saying is translated along the lines of 'I think, therefore I am' or something like that. <note to self> Learn latin.

    Ah, nolite te *******es carborundum.

    'I think therefore I am' was originally devised by French philosopher Rene Decartes in the 16th century. 'Cogito ergo sum' is the latin translation.

    Very impressive Mr White. You're making me wish to learn latin again, even though I found that class to be best spent outside away from the classroom. (and the teacher) have a bit of rep.

    I've never been to a Latin lesson. I taught myself the language so I could read an old Latin original of Summa Theologica by Thomas Aquinas.

    *chuckles* Well one has to wonder why you'd read Thomas Aquinas, but I'm amazed that you learnt just to read a book. I'm guessing for the pleasure of not losing any of the essence in possible translations.

    My father collects a lot of old books in Latin, I like to read them - which is why I'm now fluent.

    Good stuff. Warfare was my fathers preference. Almost all the German I know is learnt from books about WW1 & WW2 and also the Prussian campaigns of the 18th, 19th centuries. Es kann nur einer siegen, und das bin ich! hehe. I do like that one.
