I suppose that that's a reasonable interpretation as well (since you
couldn't "spend" 368 points to do anything, which is what you said you
were doing), although I'm not sure how you could do it all as "one
action" when the rules don't say how one could get levels 1-5 all at

I'm half-tempted to propose something that lets players make SQL-like
transactions in their public forum posts. Maybe we could add limited
conditionals and loops, too. :)

Anyway, I recognize that Wonko spent 110 points to get 366 Applied
Research points for Reincarnation and 10 General Research points. (And
yes, e already had 2 General Research.)
