So I've thought of a new game concept. Working title: Zombie Philosophers. Note: not philosophical zombies which is something different. In it, you play one of a the great dead philosophers of the past, risen as a zombie. Together you are debating the nature of the zombie state, with each other's delicious brains as the prize.  I'm thinking card based rock-paper-scissors system with attacks and defenses with  chunks of brain meat being passed as a result of successes or spent to power cards. 

Thoughts? Any merit in there?

Hi Eric, Stew author here. I appreciate that I came close to making a few good points. ;-) I wanted to pop in and say that I think you have an interesting viewpoint here and I like and agree with your analysis of your example. I did want to point out that I could have been more clear: my objection to art that's over sexualized isn't really a reaction to the content and my worry of what others think isn't because they think I'm enjoying the art it's that I don't want to be or be seen as complicit in the objectification of women. This, not my desperate desire to "bone them" is also the reason it makes me uncomfortable to appear to be harassing booth babes. I want to be part of the RPG scene but not part of the objectification of women scene. I had largely taken it that that would be understood and a shared viewpoint so I didn't spell it out nearly clearly enough it seems. I hope that makes me look a little less ridiculous. :-) 

I don't know if this is justified or not, but it irritates me enough to download the google plus app and use it that the 5e basic rules' equipment list has "bag of 1000 ball bearings" on it. Was "sack of marbles" copyrighted Wizards? What about "pouch of smooth pebbles"? "Skin of grease"?

Why no ANOVA? Seems you'd have enough data to run a multi-category ANOVA including some interaction effect and some additional quantitative xs and still have significant power without violating anyone's privacy.
