Funny enough, I've actually seen that term used to describe a subset of necromancer in several games.

Re: Bob's Toybox

I'd like to think someone besides Fred and Paul could make a game with the same heart to it, but until I see actual evidence of that, I'm not really prepared to give Brad much benefit of the doubt. Fred and Paul seemed to be willing to live and let live. Brad seems to want extract profit, or at leas...

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo :( I haven't been following it quite as closely as you, but SCII is pretty much my favourite vidja game of my youth.

Re: Barefoot and Pregnant

Yeah, that's really an excellent way of putting it. As a man hopefully going into teaching, younger children at that, it's a thought I can't escape worrying about. All it takes is a pair of kids who want The Ultimate Revenge for a bad grade or detention or whatever. Or even something with no malice ...

Re: Our Collapsing Civilization

Well, Roy Moore wants to bring back slavery and he's about to be elected to the Senate, and I'm sure there's already a few Republicans on the Hill who'd agree, so I'm sure we're on our way to it being doable!

Approximately three-quarters of all homicide victims in America are killed by someone they know.[2] And the real threat from strangers is quite different from what most fear: one-third of all Americans killed by strangers are killed by police.
