We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will.
-Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and author (1817-1862)

Yeah, I was thinking of posting it... talk about confusion! You could call someone a Adamite and you wouldn't know if they thought you were naked or some sort of yellow-green rock! =-O :-P

Just for thrills
adamite (AD-uh-myt) noun

1. A nudist.

[After the name of some Christian sects who professed to imitate the first human, Adam, in not wearing any clothes.]

2. A human being.

[After Adam, the prototypical human.]

3. A mineral (zinc arsenate hydroxide) usually yellow and green in color.

[After mineralogist Gilbert Joseph Adam (1795-1881).]



I am not a mineral! I am a human being! :-p
