Gary Gygax - You will be missed.

Okay, so I'm a few days late with this, but it's still the end of an era for many super-geeks that used to hang out in their parent's basement playing Dungeons and Dragons. Gary Gygax, one of the main creators of this pioneer fantasy role playing game has died from natural causes and MIT has immortalized him temporarily with a large, 20-sided die on campus. I hope that it gets replaced with a granite one someday.

Well your mother didn't want you to play D&D if I recall. Somebody told her to back off you wouldn't become a demon possessed satanist from a game.

Remember when jazz was supposed to cause young people to behave strangely?

I've been to the top of that building by the way.
