10:58 am: Overheard At The Wright Household

Juss, commenting upon a Penny Arcade comic in which one of the characters threatens to kill himself, take over the afterworld, and come back to destroy the other (for the offence of thinking that Warhammer was a rip-off of its spin-offs.) :

 ”But if you want to take over the afterworld after you die, you can’t just be shot you have to be killed with a sword. You have to die in a magical way if you want to do a magical thing.”

I turned to Uncle Bill and said, “Apparently, he knows more metaphysics than we do.”

Basic principle of similarity: Like produces like. Magic produces magic; non-magic does not produce magic.

This reminds me that I recently saw a new fantasy book called Unsympathetic Magic.

I thought that was a great title!
