OvomorphMember0 XPMay-06-2012 3:22 AMIt's pretty big right? Psshaw, doubt you could take that thing down with a 12-gauge


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-06-2012 3:23 AMIn the original Greek myth, after the titan Prometheus steals fire from the gods and shares it with humans, he is captured and punished by being chained and having an eagle/vulture eat his liver. he constantly regenerates, so the torture is eternal. I've always assumed the bird to be this eagle/vulture, a symbol of the punishment awaiting those who steal from the gods. it seems that I'm wrong, but given the company name, some sort of link to the original myth is at least a possibility. :)

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-06-2012 5:12 AMEdited... Nothing to say of any consequence (although I thought I did... changed my mind)

Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born. Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.
