You do realize if you're under 15 they'll take away your Warlock License, right? Get furry, start Wrathin', and stay clear of John's Verbotin (sp) Gaming Terms.

You can blame Foucault for "evolution", btw. Surprisingly the pretension (and I agree that's the motivation) around that term doesn't seem to have arrived until after F-man started up.
