  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I guess the problem would not be actual "soaps" but some other tensides. It's quite funny when your lab instructor extols the dangers of SDS, and you know the stuff is in shampoo... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_dodecyl_sulfate In other news, election day in...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Poor Sus scrofa... I guess if I had to compare the usual suspects to animals, the only genus that comes up is Anopheles. AFAIK they fulfill no important ecological role, and at least the larvae like eutrophic water bodies (AKA...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    OK, forgot the last part: Prepare the A-team to extract me from India. Err, sorry, for the South Park reference, not my favourite show. And drugs are bad, m'kay?!...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    As I said, he is a conservative, not a reactionary/fascist/I'm running out of expletives for those guys who make Ronny Raygun and Adenauer look like holy Saint Kropotkin himself. As for the Catholic stance on vaccines, the mRNA vaccines don't...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Brownshirts & blackshirts & freikorps are NOT sports fans ... and vice versa. Technically true, since a) the SA got first purged by the Nazis themselves, and were disbanded after 1945. Strasserism might be a modern descendent, though. b) while...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    From looking it through, it's not so much "local Catholics" but "local right-wing Traditionalist Catholics". LifeSiteNews has it's own wiki, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LifeSiteNews and you can go through Catholic Insight's website, https://catholicinsight.com/ Actually, after reading that one through I really want to...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    Hm, I guess somebody already mentioned the Aestivation hypothesis to you? So maybe the Cold Ones are either strong god-like entities waiting for a cooler universe, or entities from a cooler universe influencing the past. Hell, they could even be...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Actually, even Early Iron Age religion in the Levante was quite different from what we usually call "Jewish", "El" and "Yahwe" were not necessarily identical, "El" had a wife named "Asherah" etc. Oh, and am I the only one who...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Oh, the Chick tracts... May I just talk to you about Our Lord Cthulhu, it's all about who will be eaten first... https://www.entrelineas.org/pdf/assets/who-will-be-eaten-first-howard-hallis-2004.pdf...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I guess Greg means RC dictrine, which is surely ONE kind of social conservatism. It just isn't the same as OTHER kinds of social conservatism; fiscal conservatism and economic liberalism are even more different. Please note concerning doctrine, both the...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    In case nobody has brought it up, I think different pronouns depending on the social role fulfilled at tbe moment are an interesting concept. Bonus points for what metric the pronouns for "sexual" activities adhere to, penetrating/receiving, active/passive... No, never...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Catholics who are not right-wing are technically "protestants" Hm, Martin Luther and Calvin were to the right of mainline RC on quite a few issues, while the Anabaptists were to the left of it. So? As for Catholics not in...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Happened quite often, back in the day. Not with taxatiob, but look how often the Church's holdings got secularized. Some economists think that's what started modern Western economy......
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Actually, your definition of capitalism is a better fit for "market economy"; I guess capitalism is more concerned with who owns the machines and who works with them and gets what....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Hm, I found this paper interesting: The ancient Indo-European languages attest to a sex-based three-gender system, which includes masculine, feminine and neuter. As early as Brugmann (1891), it became clear that this system was a late development from an earlier...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Could we get Mel "The Inquisition" Brooks to do the musical? Not that there is that much difference between some musicals and torture......

    Hmkay, short sitrep. Borrowing a transport to move part of my room into storage on what is most likely already the hottest day of the year in my part of Germany wasn't the brightest idea to start with; I already...

    Well, anything to lighten things up is appreciated, though I'm on my way to work. Everything is more or less fine, I postponed the sclerotizing the 'rhoids to September, though the risk of an allergic reaction when doing it seems...

    OK, he could say Catholic ethical teachings trump secular law, and I could at least accept that stance, though if they say abortion is murder I'd likely ask some questions about teratogens, work conditions, global warming etc. In the case...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    when at the time we had the example of a Catholic Prime Minister who explicitly said that Papal law overrides Australian law Well, in his personal life, he is free to do so; if anybody kidnapped Henry Kissinger and inflicted...

    Even before that, we can wonder how chariots and infantry interacted in Late Bronze Age warfare; sadly, descriptions of the Battle of Kadesh center on the chariots. And the Ilias was composed much later. Minor note, the Old Vedic term...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Minor point for applying for German citizenship, for non-EU citizens there is also the question what happens with the non-German citizenship; quite often you'd have to give it up. It's quite complicated, and there was (and is) a heated discussion...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    I have, very cautiously, started going foa a beer, once a week, or even less frequently ... but always, outside at an open table, away from others. No idea if I mentioned it before, but since last week I visit...

    Ivermectin binds to quite a few ion channels, so maybe one of those is involved. There are some other antiviral channel blockers, rimantadine works against Herpes, in this case, the ion channel is viral....

    Thanks for pointing that one out, we listened to "Swan Lake" in musical education in school, sadly I only have a vague recollection of the plot. Reading the Wiki article, interesting, it's quite open for interpretation. Of course, "Rothbart" is...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Well, I guess Orthodox Marxists would speak of "false consciousness when the subordinate class internalizes the ideology of the ruling class. You might also use the term "Stockholm syndrome", though the term is problematic. Personally, well, I'd use the term...

    Let me guess, her BMI was above 40, and her income was below 50% of the median income? As for "not looking after herself", if she voted for the Trumpenfuhrer, I rest my case....

    Concerning the Fermi Paradox, that would be "Periodic extinction by natural events", though veering into "It is the nature of intelligent life to destroy itself". Please note most intelligent species on earth live in somewhat smallish groups like packs, which...

    Going back to the fun with Libertarianism and Anarchism in the last thread... This is David "Debt" Graeber on Anarchism. (Hey, I see Anarchy Archives is still up. Made me giggle when the German translation of an article from "Scientific...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Hm, my mental picture of the isotopes used in RTGs and their Stirling-engine cousins is this red-hot pellet of plutonium oxide. Strontium-90 seems to pack a similar amount of energy, so I wonder what the heat signature of the drone...
