We don't need to tell anyone that the term 'legend' is thrown around all too loosely in modern society. According to the internet everyone is a legend, even mere mortals like you and I. The accolade of being described or discussed as a legend should be something of great honour, reserved only for the truly great people, the superhuman amongst us who excel at something beyond the highest level possible and/or contribute greatly to society and culture.
