That said, since we don't really want realism in the game, I think it'd be fine to cheat by having walls or support beams go all indestructible on us when we are more than 20 feet from the entrance.
Though how about this alternative: 20 years or until you have generated revenue based on the idea equal to 20× the investment into creating it, whichever comes first. That way big ideas quickly make their money and then everyone can improve them but you still get a window even if your idea isn't profitable.
*Snopes is right, it was an extremely uncommon word that had more common contemporary equivalents. It seems very unlikely that retellings of the story would keep archaic usage. It'd be like telling your children of Fast and Furious by calling what they drove horseless carriages.
*The Grimm brothers were some of the first anthropologists who went around gathering and preserving stories for history as they observed the culture is changing. Anthropologists frequently are credited as authors in that context even if they weren't the people who came up with them.
*The monster in Frankenstein muses that children take their father's name and what is the doctor if not his father. He is also referred to as the Adam of a new age, which is a biblical reference instead of really an appellation.
*Troy is absolutely a place and it absolutely was destroyed (repeatedly) in wars. archaeologists have known about it for almost 200 years. We know that the earliest versions of the city date back to the Bronze Age. And if you look at Western Turkey and ask who was warring in the Bronze Age it's hard to claim that none of the military destructions of the city were Greek.
Though I suppose that just makes him a politician more than it makes him not anything else.
His stance on America being a Christian nation at least isn't as bad as Thomas's. Thomas claims that freedom of religion meant freedom to practice any form of Christianity. He really /really/ isn't qualified to be sitting on the bench (for that and many other reasons).
And we can at least take some solace in the fact that Scalia's dissent in Lawrence v Texas is cited in nearly all cases that rule in favor of gay marriage. In that dissent he claimed that if we can't use morality to stop gay sex then there's nothing to stop gay marriage from being legal. He tried to slippery slope argument into scaring people out of striking down the anti-sodomy laws. But he actually just pointed out that neither law had firm legal grounding. So that bigot's words are being used to destroy the very bigotry he espouses.
