    On the sacrificial altar
    In a deli in New York
    You might find a leg of lamb
    But you wont find no pork
    Ive never, ever killed a man
    And I swear Ive never lied
    But God said, "Youve done quite enough, you pig your bacons fried"

    Chorus:
    One Bad Pig - Our claim to fame
    One Bad Pig - What a stupid name
    One Bad Pig - God wont take ham
    One BadPig - Christ is The Lamb

    I was a filthy goyim
    The worst youd ever seen
    But you can call me "Kosher"
    Cuz Jesus made me clean
    Once to be called chosen
    You had to be a Jew
    But since we died in Jesus One Bad Pig is chosen too

    Chorus (2x)

    One Bad Pig - Our claim to fame
    One Bad Pig - What a stupid name
    One Bad Pig - God wont take ham
    One BadPig - Christ is The Lamb

    ONE BAD PIG!

    I suppose the other possibility for a switch might be Metallurgist. Still not sure if it could topple the mighty Zymologist, though.

    Huh, I played that game as well.

    Anyway, my screen name doesn't really have much of a significance to it:

    I was 15(ish) and using the nickname Chronos on forums and in the games I was playing. I didn't think it was "unique" enough so I bastardized the spelling and the result was Chrawnus. I think it also had something to do with the "caw" or "kraa" sound that crows and ravens make.

    Everything anyone needs to know about my screen name is in my sig.

    Lao Tzu is not a name, it's a description. It means "old man" or "old master," and in contradistinction to the prophetic traditions of the Abrahamic faiths, illustrates the utility of anonymity, focusing attention on the message stripped of any authority assigned to the messenger.

    It was chosen as an homage to the anonymous final editor of the 81 poems comprising the Tao Te Ching, literally the "Way Virtue Book," a composition of the Tao Ching and the Te Ching, presented together and titled "The Way of Life" in English, and representing, for me, a close approximation to my personal philosophy. It's not about truth. It's about how to find it.

    The fact that you can post that on this forum, rather than be playing Travian at this very moment, speaks highly of your self-discipline.

    Nah, it's more like it was ages ago that I played, so the "addiction" has weakened considerably. Not sure I could even get my old account back, since I don't have access to the email account I signed up with.

    There were running jokes about students at my college waking up early for the sole purpose of "checking their travian." First thing you do out of class? Check your travian. First thing after mealtime? Check your travian, etc. It was a vampire.

    Apparently he's also worshipped as the "Supreme Old Lord" (Tishng Lǎojūn), so I guess you got that goin for you if the whole anonymity thing don't pan out.

    I compose music, and the main character of the game I made is named Melody. I found the verse in my signature after I came up with the name.
    ~ Russell ("MelMak")

    "[Sing] and [make] melody in your heart to the Lord." -- Ephesians 5:19b
