The capacity of a highway lane is 1,800 cars per hour. This is a crowded highway pushed to the limit.
A full subway train has 1,000 people on it. That's just one train. Add a second train five minutes later and you've surpassed the highway. You can run a train every ten minutes, easy. The limit is thirty per hour -- one train every two minutes. The capacity of a single subway line is 30,000 passengers per hour.
Remind folks when they complain about traffic and want to build another highway.
The Dictionary of Mu is up for pre-order, shipping in early January.
The Dictionary of Mu is a pulp fantasy setting supplement for Ron Edwards' Sorcerer RPG where demons are dead things, bits of history made wrong.

I do not wanna hear "There's no point in impeaching Tump because Pence."
Bull. Shit. The effort to coordinate removing Trump would demonstrate a greater organized opposition than we've had in years. 2/3rds in both the House & Senate opposing and removing Trump? And you think that'd just dissolve the moment Pence is in office? FOH. You realize with that majority congress would have veto power, right?
But there's always an excuse to do nothing. Always an excuse to roll over and die.
My fellow gargoyles.
We have embraced our nature.
Feast on the blood of the threatmakers.
But never trust your perch's owner. We are too quick to strike.
Many times the enemy is not your target.
Shed your stone skin in the daylight.
No disguises hide your nature but the sun's paralysis turns your eyes to stone.
Be not cast in stone today.
Defend the weak and innocent.
Protect the void on Samhain and forevermore.
You may know Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a legendary basketball player. What you may not know is that he’s a huge Holmesian (literally and figuratively) and a fantastic writer: http://bit.ly/2PlzWOp

Wizard magic is like playing a classical symphony: careful, precise, intellectual. You study hard, practice endless hours, and don't deviate from the instructions in the book.
Sorcerer magic is like jazz: wild, driven by emotion and what you feel deep inside, improvisational and create and unique to the performer.
Warlock magic is like the blues: you get good at it because you literally sold your soul to the Devil late one night at a deserted crossroads, then you regret that bargain.
