You should correct that RPG deficiency - and in an engaging fashion in which a connection is built to the character allowing the actual horror/fear elements to come through the game as opposed to the Paranoia-esque fashion in which far too many despoil Sandy Petersen's opus by racing to be the first character driven stark raving bonkers. That's my opinion, anyway :) I'll make you an offer...I'll buy ya the book if you come to Tucson to play! (Here's hoping the fallacy of logic in my offer doesn't come to light...)

So, while following the link I couldn't help but notice the 30th anniversary deepone-hide covered Call of C'thulhu book coming soon. Not unlike the nice person who posted the article, I too loved D&D and Star Frontiers, but CoC was always my favorite. So, whatta ya say, Mr. Wheaton...are you a fan of such a tome of horrors?

I have to respectfully disagree. DoE spends $35M to potentially have that accelerator catch Higgs before tiny little singularities destroy all of Eur...oh wait, that's a silly book...before another such device with a (as I understand it) higher liklihood of such a find catches the particle? To me that sounds akin to throwing good money after bad. I would much prefer the $35M go towards development of more efficient solar arrays, study of improved hydro-electric plants or some other such applied effort. Seems like a higher RoI. If, however, the money is just swept up in budget cuts that's a different matter...unless, of course, it results in sparing cuts to NIH (or any other portion of the HHS/CDC hierarchy). As for paywalls...well, like several others that have posted before me, I understand the need. Given enough time, most of the quality articles will reach a free distribution source. Alternatively, they will be distilled (was going to say "horribly mis-interpreted" but thought I'd be optimistic) by mainstream journalists and reach us via another medium. If nothing else, this is a backhanded encouragement to visit the library...
