Interesting

adder (n.)
Old English (West Saxon) næddre (Mercian nedre, Northumbrian nedra), "a snake; the Serpent in the Garden of Eden," from Proto-Germanic *naethro "a snake" (source also of Old Norse naðra, Middle Dutch nadre, Old High German natra, German Natter, Gothic nadrs), from PIE root *nētr- "snake" (source also of Latin natrix "water snake" (the sense is probably by folk-association with nare "to swim"); Old Irish nathir, Welsh neidr "snake, serpent").

Definitely turns people into narcissists ive found.

A 'lady' is "one who kneads bread" and or a "maker of dough". A 'lord' is "one who guards the loaves".

lady (n.)

Why such an emphasis on bread?

Slang terms also use 'bread' to refer to everything from pussy to currency.

coin (n.)
c. 1300, "a wedge, a wedge-shaped piece used for some purpose," from Old French coing (12c.) "a wedge; stamp; piece of money;" usually "corner, angle," from Latin cuneus "a wedge," which is of unknown origin.

Decided to look this while searching... "who coined the phrase"... words are wedges (particularly the variety i was looking up).

a weird aside, I remember listening to E. Michael Jones, and he said "fiat (specifically usury) turns the infertile fertile, and anal sex turns the fertile infertile"

Why did Tupac change his birth name of 'Lesane Parish Crooks' to 'Tupac Amaru Shakur'? I'm not too sure what 'Shakur' means but 'Tupac Amaru' was the last monarch of the Neo-Inca state of Vilcabamba.

'Tupac' means 'royal' or 'shining' and 'Amaru' means 'serpent'.

The man born 'José Gabriel Condorcanqui Noguera' changed his name (or at least was referred to/known as) to 'José Gabriel Túpac Amaru' or simply 'Tupac Amaru II' was another who changed their birth name to 'Tupac Amaru'.

It seems that the thing all these people have in common is that at some point they tried to spear head a rebellion against a larger force or group than their own. The title of 'Tupac Amaru' seems to imply that who ever associates with it is a rebel with notable knowledge and ambition to change things.
