Today, I lost my laptop, but I have my old childhood computer to use. It's password-protected, and the hint to the password is "meaner than Hera." I haven't been into Greek mythology since I was a kid, and if anything, this computer has just shown me how dumb I've gotten over the years. FML
HeckIfIKnow tells us more :
So I never figured it out (although I'm pretty sure it wasn't the God of Farts) but the computer was really old anyway, so I'm just gonna borrow my mom's / use the one allotted to me at work until I can afford a new one. Thanks for the suggestions!

Try Ares or Zeus. Ares is the god of war and Zeus raped a ton of people. If that doesn't work, the good ole god of the underworld, Hades, oughta crack the code.

I don't think so, though Hades was the god of the underworld, he was pretty nice compared to the rest. Even though he kidnapped Persephone and was cruel to her in the beginning, he was nice to her later, and he generally remains faithful. It could've been Aphrodite too, she was really horrible.

Being the god of war or of the underworld doesn't make you mean.
As for Zeus, he wouldn't be given as a model today, but I don't recall any story where his attitude was condemned.

@133 as I said, Zeus raped people. If that's not enough to question his attitude, idk what is. And Ares fought for the sake of fighting he enjoyed gore and general discord. He liked organized murder and was generally shallow. Read any mythology book and it'll confirm this.

After reading through this string of comments, I'm somewhat looking forward to a follow-up.

Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if the password was actually the name of a sibling, or someone else not directly related to Greek mythology, they just thought was mean, and used one of their interests at that point in time for the hint.

Percy Jackson is a great gateway to Greek mythology (and Roman, now), even though it may not be accurate. It's not the only mythos that should be read, but a lot of people use it to get kids into the greater literature.

God of War is also far from accurate
but what I think #32 meant is that the games and books got him interested in mythology enough to read up on the actual mythos

Small things and basics are spot on. The rest is for the book. I surprisingly learned a lot about Greek Mythology because of those books. But you've got to look a little further than the plot line.

Just to clarify. I know Percy Jackson isn't accurate. It was more like Percy Jackson made me interested in Greek mythology, which then made me researche on wikipedia for the facts.

Hera wasn't really the mother figure toward the other god(desses) but more of a Queen figure. As she only gave birth to three major gods, Hephaestus, Ares and Hebe and i think she also gave birth to three minor gods. For someone who was the goddess of childerbirth, marriage and women she was actually quite creul.

That's why I said "a mother figure kinda," it's a stretch but I know some kids who have said "Hera ain't got nothing on my mom." Just a little semi deductive semi anecdotal reasoning on my part.

Don't feel bad, OP. If you don't use it, you lose it. It happens and it has nothing to do with intelligence. Just relevance of use and interest.
