Yesterday I met a guy on Frostwhisper whose nick was "Machiavelli". I told him he had a cool name and he asked:
"Thanks. Do you know where it's from?"
"Yes, a statesman form around 1500, Nicolo Machiacelli, from Florence, Italy."
<few seconds of silence> "Damn, you really know it!"
Yeah, I can get a kick off knowledge and when I can show it off. But wouldn't you? :)
