comment What is the optimal strategy for the launched site in Stack Egg?
Since there's no traffic in public beta, I wonder whether this is the right strategy for that stage.

comment Etymology of 'genus'
The other senses of 2 aren't much of a stretch from "family." I suspect you're struggling to find the right definition of "stock"; it's 5 in Merriam Webster, "the original (as a person, race, or language) from which others derive" et. al.

comment Etymology of 'genus'
What do you mean "how does 1 imply 3"? "beget" (1) -> "family" (2) -> "kind" (3) seems pretty straightforward to me. And where do the big bang and evolution come into this?

Interesting uses for the fat, I hadn't even considered using that part.

comment Is question 39423 (origin of "reaping" souls) on-topic?
@AndresF. I don't particularly like this type of question either, but the community has quite clearly decided they're on-topic. Most of the questions in the search I posted are not asking about a particular work, that's the whole point of the question "what was the first work". And many of them do go back to folklore; what is folklore anyway, if not fantasy?
