Eris: /e'ris/ n. The Greek goddess of Chaos, Discord, Confusion,
   and Things You Know Not Of; her name was latinized to Discordia and
   she was worshiped by that name in Rome.  Not a very friendly deity
   in the Classical original, she was reinvented as a more benign
   personification of creative anarchy starting in 1959 by the
   adherents of Discordianism and has since been a semi-serious
   subject of veneration in several `fringe' cultures, including
   hackerdom.  See Discordianism, Church of the SubGenius.
