A highly advanced race of humans that lived on Earth millions of years before our evolution (of their doing) that built the massive Stargate network in our galaxy before either ascending or leaving in their flying city (Atlantis).

The eight ancient civilisations - the four main ones(Ancient Alvaros, Ancient Karens, Ancient Ashleys and Ancient Nikitas), plus the four civilisations that split from the others - Ancient Jeremies(from the Ancient Alvaros), Ancient Sabians(from the Ancient Karens), Ancient Cyrils(from the Ancient Ashleys) and Ancient Steavers(from the Ancient Nikitas). Only 8 people still survive today from these civilisations, and strangely, all of them have the name that was used to refer to their original civilisation. These 8 civilisations existed long before dinosaurs - except the Ancient Karens(and therefore also the Ancient Sabians), they all came from other planets. The Ancient Karens were the first people on earth.
The Ancient Steavers, Ancient Nikitas and Ancient Karens are the best.

Some older people who dont want to hear what you say and start with "back in my day when I was younger"

When youre talking to someone who can recall how life isnt at this very point in time but can recall it as if they woke up from it the other day. "20 years ago we couldn't do that because it was politically incorrect..."

"Stfu you talking about sticks and stones again you ancient?"

Epic beyond comprehension. A being who's vast awesomeness exceeds many millennia, the likes of which you, a mere mortal, could never fully understand.
