Jack is a cool name.

I don't think you know Jack! :-)

Derived from Jackin (earlier Jankin), a medieval diminutive of JOHN. It is often regarded as an independent name. During the Middle Ages it was very common, and it became a slang word meaning "man". It was frequently used in fairy tales and nursery rhymes, such as 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Little Jack Horner', and 'Jack Sprat'
Makes more sense as a diminutive if you consider 'Johannes' for John and 'Jankin' for Jack.

One of my great-nephews is called Jack.
I'll introduce you.

I would love to meet him. I'm sure he's a cool kid, if he's your nephew. :)

Gerry Anderson, Thunderbirds creator, dies.


I didn't realize Trey Parker and Matt Stone were doing a riff on Anderson's Thunderbirds Series in Team America.
