    there was a much more elaborate story about how aliens invaded earth and certain people had access to nukes to launch on the order of the prez.

    humans win the war supposedly and they have a press conference, oh its safe to come out now! send us a msg at your location..come to find out the aliens took over the bodies of the prez and etc..


    I forget which show this was, it was much creepier than my crappy retelling lol..

    why do people in this thread keep assuming that `man` refers to gender rather than species (huMAN)

    why do people in this thread keep assuming that `man` refers to gender rather than species (huMAN)

    Here`s a curious thing:

    There is no known connection between the word `human` and the word `man`. If there is one, it greatly predates history.

    `man` can be traced to proto-Germanic (since it appears in several different Germanic languages) and was sex-neutral until very recently. It`s only been sex-specific for a few decades and even now it`s linguistically correct to use it as sex-neutral, like it was for millenia.

    `human` can be traced to Latin, i.e. not connected to Germanic languages before Rome expanded that far north.

    It`s reasonable to think there`s a connection if you just go on the words without knowing their etymologies, but it seems to be just an odd coincidence.

    Just in case anyone cares, it used to be like this in English:

    man = person. Explicitly sex-neutral, adulthood often implied because there was a different word for children.

    wer = male.
    wif = female.

    English used to use a lot of compound words, so you had:

    werman = male person
    wifman = female person

    `wifman` got smoothed together into the more easily spoken `woman`...which sounded much like the way `werman` was usually pronounced. So `werman` faded away, remaining only in `werewolf` (originally `wermanwulf` - male person wolf).

    Doesn`t that just mean at least one woman was still left? Why is that worse than being alone? Or am I being dumb?
