Simulacrum is also one of my favorite necromancer spells. So many uses, so little time.

I hope the dictionary people are paying Drew megabuxxx for the link placements, because these headlines have been pure trash since day 1.  They stink worse than the mystery juice leaking from the dumpster behind a fishmonger's in July.

FTFDWhat It Means
simulacrum is a superficial likeness or representation of something.
// The wax figure is a perfect simulacrum of the president.

"This is what terrorism is occupied with as well: making real, palpable violence surface in opposition to the invisible violence of security."
― Jean Baudrillard, Simulacra and Simulation

A good book.

Happy Earth Day!
