http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MenschHere, a mensch is said to be "a particularly good person" -- like "a stand-up guy". This raises some other questions in my mind about the term "guy" itself. I've heard it used to distinguish males from females, but I've also heard people (it seems to me that the speakers are usually female here) using "you guys" to address an audience of both males and females. Does this work for only mixed audiences or can we ever have a female speaker addressing a group of females as "you guys"? How about a male speaker addressing a mixed group as "you guys"? OK?As for "Mensa," it comes from the Latin for "table." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mensa_International--SirTas
