Someone is murdering climate scientist.

This still to this day pisses me off: The Harper Canadian government, as part of 'cost cutting' defunded a lot of Canada's archives. One of the things that as destroyed were Ernest Shackleton's logs. The Canadian government burned books that contained climate data gathered by Shackleton noting the weather in his daily logs.

Of course, I'm a librarian - burning books engenders some rage on my part. And when I say some, I mean all of it.

On an 'oh shit' moment for Eclipse Phase games, air gapped servers are not safe - they can broadcast data: http://www.wired.com/2015/07/researchers-hack-air-gapped-computer-simple-cell-phone/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_George%27s_Church,_Leeds

So, this is something I've actually used to write a Trail of Cthulhu scenario.

During the 1930's, homelessness was such a problem in the city of Leeds, West Yorkshire, that the local church addressed their problems by turning their crypt (a literal crypt) into a temporary homeless shelter.

I mean, what could go wrong by sticking society's most vulnerable and at-risk folk in a literal fucking crypt right?

(Spoilers: in the scenario I wrote, no it's not ghouls. Ghouls were too obvious)

Having read the Color Out of Space there is no way this does not end poorly.

Welp, the Secret of NIMH just got a whole lot more plausible:

Also this could be good reading for a "legacy" of NIMH game? XD hint, hint Aaron ?

Anyone have a lead on some super creepy flute only or at the very least primarily flute music?

It's harder to find than I thought it would be.

Also as for contribution to story fodder:

Ikea Furniture names are actually all words in the ancient seal holding back oblivion via Great Old One.
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

OK, this is sad, but the dude was a badass in multiple ways.  Could easily be tied in with a Delta Green story line (just listened to Iconoclasts Actual Play the other day so this stuck out at me).

A site that collects together a whole bunch of information on black market and world crime information.

For example, the prices of AK-47s and other weapons around the world:

The Niger Delta has crazy good prices!

This sounds like a Delta Green scenario just waiting to be written.
