Actually kosmokrator more closely means "world ruler" in english (contrast pantokrator, "almighty").

kosmo- comes from kosmos (world or an ordered system) from which we get the words cosmos and cosmetics.

-krator comes from kratia (ruler, might, sovereign) from which we get democracy (a ruling people).

In that light "world keeper" still makes sense and isn't wrong. But for the sake of literal etymology, I just wanted to clarify for anyone that doesn't know any greek that, in this case, kratia doesn't mean "to have" but "to rule".

M1J comes from mine and my wife’s name. It started out on AIM as M&J then we jumped to MSN and it did not like the & so I made it M1J and discovered a twist. The 1 could stand for won which would illustrate My victory of all the other suitters for her hand.

My name is Pitchaya Sitthi-amorn. I had an email account registered very early when opened, but it was hacked. I didn't bother to mail the admin, but open a new one as I have used pitchayasit username everywhere since then.

Hehe. People often ask me that about mine....

Well, gustav is one of my characters I use in all sorts of places (impromptu acting rpg's etc) and mushroom...well...that was a nickname. Something about being cute and hyperactive...i dont quite get the cute part though...makes no sense to me. That and well...MUSHROOM! I mean come on! Nobody else sees the connotations there??? lol. They probably called me mushroom because i seem like im on something when im hyper...sugar maybe if anything..or caffeine lol.

I also use the name on deviantart (see

many years ago i told my friend i would make an AIM screen name b/c i was sick of him bugging me about it. i put in "eman" and that was taken. for the next 30 minutes i entered in random #s at the end of my name and i STILL got "That name has been taken"! So i decided to do something on purpose 76(7*6 = 42, the awnser to the life universe and everything!)13(my age at the time) & it finally worked. its stuck ever since.

oh and for shooting games my title is Triggerhappy, that one is self explanatory :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
Yes i know, my spelling sucks

My forum name comes from my alter ego when I'm at Burning Man. I cover myself from head to toe in silver make up. I really become silver man.

Burning Man is a wild art festival/party that takes place in the Black Rock desert in late August- early September.

You can learn about Burning Man at my web site of 3D photos:
