Are you an Epimetheus?

I know what you're thinking, and it's a good question. Who or what is Epimetheus? For all of you who are not up on your Greek mythology, allow me to enlighten you. 

Back in the day, about 1,000 years before the birth of Christ, the Greeks wrote about gods and goddesses, giants and monsters, virgins and sacrifices. Good times, I've heard. In the last decade or so, Hollywood has churned out some epic movies on these epic myths: 'Troy,' 'Alexander' and the 'Percy Jackson & the Olympians' series to name a few. Nothing really beats Brad Pitt in a loin cloth, but Collin Farrell with blond highlights is a close second. Recently, Logan Lerman's 'Aw shucks, me, a demi-god?' portrayal of Poseidon's son, Percy, has struck a chord with tweens and teens everywhere, so Greco-Roman myth has happily seen a bit of resurgence in today's pop culture.
