I prefer mixed-case multi-word identifiers rather than identifiers with 
words separated by underscors but I think I will use lowercase 
everywhere from now on :/

you guessed right. I checked up on it at

Doesn't seem like there are many words left in the english language that 
aren't reserved ;) I didn't realise there were so many [non-]reserved 
words. Postgres reserves GLOBAL as a "non-reserved" word as opposed to a 
"reserved" word (just read the docs from the above link).

A print out of this list now stays by my side...
