I want a role-playing game based on insane scientific theories from the 30s. I think a Jacob's ladder gives +5 to kooky-kontraption.
It's also at this point I'm going to be an intellectual snob. The creation is not called Frankenstein, okay? You can call it the creature, or the monster, or even Frankenstein's monster, but it is not called Frankenstein. Let's just get that clear now. Frankenstein was the doctor.
Despite what you may be thinking, Edison did not plan this as a commercial for delivering electricity to people's homes. But that would have been awesome.
Hey, what's good for the gander is good for the goose, huh? Anyone know when the safety pin was invented? Is that an anachronism?
Awwwww yeah...Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. Those guys are in everything.
And I want to personally thank Jorodowsky for giving us that "oil lamp\self-immolation" trope. Thank you so much for the end of El Topo and the image that will not stop.
PS: I wanted to post this on Thursday because it's Thor's day. Lighting! HAHA!
