The Sultan of Entropy is nothing but a POSER!!!

>What's the difference between a Sheik and a Sultan?

Relatively similar terms. A sheik is a tribal Arab ruler or religious leader, 
while a sultan is specifically a Muslim ruler. I am not an expert on any of 
this, I turned to my handy-dandy dictionary for the assist. (Webster also 
listed a sultan as the ruler of Turkey). 

My handle was inspired (subconsciously) by an old song called The Sheik Of 
Araby. I was playing an over-the-top high-level wizard in an Advanced 
Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game (around 1985 or so) who saved the life of 
a powerful king. This king granted my character a region to rule, and a 
title/cabinet position of my choosing. I just kind of blurted out off the top 
of my head "Can I be The Sheik Of Entropy?" 

So I chose my screen name after my favorite AD&D character, inspired by the 
old song Sheik Of Entropy.

P.S. That turkey Sultan will get HIS when I catch up with him,
