    So, can we blame this one on BrExit? https://thepointsguy.com/news/british-airways-flight-bound-for-dusseldorf-somehow-ends-up-in-edinburgh/ A British Airways flight out of London bound for Düsseldorf (DUS) accidentally landed in Edinburgh (EDI) Monday morning. Passengers aboard the flight were baffled when the more than 500-mile mix-up occurred....

    Previous people who were in that particular situation have all been Vice Presidents, Well, there is that Al Haig moment....

    I'd hate to see America elect those people again merely because Mueller thinks he's only got a 70-percent chance of finding Kushner guilty. A recent story about Mueller's past was big on that is NOT how he works....

    Having to leave it means, in a very real psychological way, cutting out part of your life. I'm cool with that. But getting mad at the buyers? Sorry....
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    It's too bad your father-in-law's stories never made it into writing. You and me literally have no idea. He spend a full year in Iran around 1959/60 dealing with some covert thing. No leave and really gone for a full...

    Actually my point was that the receipts don't align with the way things are allocated. They could have spent the $500 mil on food. But they can't tell do to the sloppy record keeping. Paying a bill to Fung Chu...

    Given the way it works 10% of registered voters is not likely to be 10% of petition folks....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    The only real, arguably valid, constraint that I saw in operation is that you need to be a registered voter. That's a state by state thing. As a side note, here in central NC there's a reasonably independent research group...

    Duh. I hate user interfaces like this. Teeny tiny light blue text on a slightly darker background. Ugh. My wife was responsible for airport displays for a while for an airline. (Not content, just the displays and getting the content...

    As to the survey map, as a feature request it would be neat to be able to switch from an absolute count to a percentage of the registered/eligible/whatever voters in each district. Or do all of the elections districts (or...

    What you don't know is my wife's father was the base comptroller for Fort Mead in the early 80s. I never met him as he died while on that duty[1] but the family stories about military accounting... Oy vey. [1]No...

    To everyone who things a bot can scam the system. Maybe. But I'd hope the people who set this up at least track IP addresses and make sure they seem to mostly come from the areas that seem to be...

    Ah, another Libertoonie that thinks the Government is a "business" and needs to be held to commercial standards (Audit the Fed!). Oh give it up. DoD budget says $500 million for Pacific fleet food supplies for ships. Audits says show...

    I think the most interesting thing would be if this poll gets to a number which surpasses 1/2 of the possible voters in a referendum. Not just a majority of the last vote totals....

    I'm not talking about the nostalgia for the home. I'm talking about the anger at the new owners. Sorry if that wasn't clear. I have some nostalgia for homes also. From the time I was 2 until 20, I lived...

    "You bought it, it's yours to do with as you wish." I'm 65 and feel that way. My father was that way. My mother not so much. My mother in law totally wanted someone to buy HER home and keep...

    most active voters tie their self-image as a good person to home ownership. Not arguing. But I've seen a lot of retired people who are very upset when selling their home. But in an odd way, or so it seems...

    Sorry, the self-proclaimed "Tea Party" in Congress are not, in fact, "hard core conservatives" (and Paul Krugman agrees). Who cares? My point was on both sides of the pond, a small group of hard core Leprechauns or whatever we call...

    Dunno bout there, but I've been called in Philly, Austin, TX, Chicago, IL, Washington, DC, and Montgomery Co, MD (DC 'burb). The randomness here is interesting. My wife has been called 3 or 4 times and served all but one...

    The really interesting thing about money laundering is you don't need to make a profit for your clients; they expect to lose money on the deal. Of course. Having $10mil you can't ever spend or even admit to having is...

    Why can't Parliament pass a law that says "As of March 30, excluding sh*t like treaties, we continue to follow EU statute and regulation until such time as Parliament changes them"? That would be a betrayal of Breixt. At least...

    As bad as the Trumpster fire is As speaking of incompetence. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/the-real-reason-president-trump-is-constantly-losing-in-court/2019/03/19/f5ffb056-33a8-11e9-af5b-b51b7ff322e9_story.html I've said to others that if his admin would pay attention to the "rules" their wreaking ball would be hitting a lot more targets....

    And that has got to be the filthiest way to get oil in use currently. Dig up vast (really vast) stretches of sand with some oil mixed in it. Boil it to get the oil out. Dump the left over...

    when May discovers she's not permitted to leave without a deal (by the UK parliament) I must have missed something. I thought that unless there is an extension granted by the EU (all 27 of them) the UK is out...

    There's a saying. When you're up to your arse in alligators it can be hard to remember the goal is to drain the swamp. In other words, they (the elected government) is running around with their hair on fire. Details,...

    They're swinging a wrecking ball. They don't care what they hit so long as they're last man standing. Ditto the US just now. They don't say it in public but the extreme hard core DT supports are mostly there. Except...
