On moral grounds, Darwin rejected the hard-hearted philosophy that later came to be called "social Darwinism." He said, "if we were intentionally to neglect the weak and helpless, it could only be for a contingent benefit, with an overwhelming present evil."
 
Don't blame Darwin for eugenics.
Fascinating article though.

Happy Easter, everybody. Especially people where it is actually spring, and where people observe Easter. And if Easter is too Christian for you, then happy Spring Is Here Day. At least If you're in a part of the world where it is spring. (Man, holidays were easier when our holiday wishes didn't spread across the globe.)

My new +13th Age campaign started last night with a crit on the first roll, so that's a good omen. We also tested whether wereboars are tough enough at shaking off damage, and they are. The heroes are currently at the end of a dead dungeon, around the corner from an abyssal portal that's too scary to look at, and now the whole place is shaking, and behind them demons are bubbling up out of sacrificial skulls. Characters are a demonic chaos mage (looks like a gnome), a high elf starborn druid, a high elf rogue/wizard, a dwarf cleric/fighter, and a dwarf godbinder (cleric/sorcerer).

Yes, and we're bringing back level limits, too, in order to balance the "demi-humans."

The new AFK game-oriented restaurant and bar is open in Renton. It's still in beta mode, so be forgiving, and I'm not sure the bar is actually open yet. Look for the sign that used to say THE KEG. The Keg was an above average chain restaurant until they took the salad bar out. This place is down the street from Wizards, and it was a common after-work hangout. It's nice to see the place open again, and really nice to have an AFK just 10 km from my home, not 60 km north in Everett.

Good feedback and lots of time means that there's a new, improved prototype for people who are helping me test +Grandmother Fish, or who would like to start. It's a child's first book of #evolution .

For once, my Labor Day weekend won't be taken up by Burning Man or sending my daughter to college, and that means I'm free to attend Pax for the first time ever. I hear it's a big deal.

It's a fantastic starting point for bonding, I agree.

For many years, my wife and I have relied on A D Sanchez to handle our taxes, which have been pretty complicated. He's been helpful and patient. If my wife signed up with him, his rates must be low.
