Anyone here played Warcraft 3's expansion? One mission has the Blood Elves settle on an island on the outskirts of Dalaran. In that mission, you can research quite a handful of upgrades. The next mission has the EXACT SAME island, the exact same protagonist, only 20 minutes after the end of the first mission. After the initial cutscene... well, time to re-research all the upgrades you researched half an hour ago.

Bit of natter from the Civiliation examples:
  • "Research" is a particularly poor choice of words when applied to religious concepts, because religion is effectively the opposite of research. "Research" is also typically used in these games for other non-empirical concepts and philosophies.
    • Not really. The Catholic Church and virtually every other major religion was at the forefront of scientific research for almost the entirety of human civilization. The whole science vs religion issue is very recent and largely restricted to a very small percentage of priests and other religious authority figures. The scientific community is usually just as slow to embrace new scientific concepts as the church is normally portrayed as. For example, high ranking members in the Catholic church were among the first people to accept evolution and the big bang theory. The reason this is ignored is because both sides of the science vs religion argument decided to ignore this.

The vulture milk link is dead. Could it please be replaced by a internet archive version, or something else more useful?

Is it really neccesary to have the whole VG Cats comic here? I think just a 4 panel snippet, maybe even one panel, would do just fine. My recommendation would be panels 3 and 4.
