It was "No-man" not "No one", so when they asked "Who blinded you?" the answer was "No man has blinded me!". Red thumb me for trying to be a know-it-all douche, I don't care. I shall accept them with grace.

Actually, The Odyssey was written in Ancient Greek, so I would find it quite strange for there to be English words in it.

Odysseus tells Polyphemus that his name is Οὖτις in the original text. Nobody, No One, No Man are all acceptable translations. It depends on who your translator was.

Smartass.

By "you found" you mean you got it off front page.
That and it's completely unrelated.

Say what you will about the book, I've always loved the part in The Great Gatsby where the the drunk driver crashes his car outside the party and he keeps trying to drive it and the crowd all around him is going on like, "you don't even have all your wheels, old sport."
