    I'm on the go, but as for Saint Stalin... I have now idea how this is tied in to the WW2 rapprochement between Stalin and the Orthodox Church. Though I have known my fair share of, err, confused politics in...

    I'd have to look up the specifics, but IIRC the Bundesrat being distributed according to states and not proportional vote sometimes made for the Social Democrats controlling the Bundesrat in the early Adenauer years, while the CDU always had a...

    Who you working for anyhow? As a question directed at me? I have no idea, the road to hell is paved with good intentions or frozen door-to-door salesmen, and I have a nagging fear of coming down (figuratively, not literally)...

    And then look very carefully at some toys and some of the larger Corporations and wonder at what switches / buttons are being pushed. I agree, but sometimes it might really be a "random" coincidence. To go for the "Rape...

    Actually, tabis and a certain interest in Japanese culture and history might mitigate my "never socks in sandals" policy somewhat in the future. Though not much. ;) (Project for 2019: Make your own geta, though I wonder if e.g. I...

    I read @Noel Maurer as talking about the fact that you can't have divided government, where the legislature and the executive are different factions. I'm not sure if that's a general proposition or just about the USA. I doesn't work...

    That's why I added whatever measure of "intelligence" you use. To go with the article by Taleb[1], ,,,, is an induction; you could say all induction is faulty, or you could say it has more than one solution, it might...

    You're not getting it yet (who knows perhaps you are) I will try, problem is your data points remind me why I usually don't bother with a password or encryption for some of my notes. It's highly unlikely somebody with...

    Having said that, I'd like to avoid getting too deep into a discussion of German politics circa 1919-45. I agree, though I wonder if a general look at the European developments after 1919 might help somewhat with establishing failure modes....

    Another problem is how said "rebalancing" is going to work. To risk an imminnent Godwin, the Nazis were also about "rebalancing"; in the beginning, that might have included all property holder, in the end, they settled on Jews and people...

    On another note... Firefox Pocket showed me a like to this. Personally, I have been wondering about the IQ (or whatever measure of "intelligence" you use) of some people I know lately, partly because of some strange results (people having...

    Hm, I know people worse than SR and other problematic commentators[1]. Though it might have something to do with the anthropologist on Mars quite often being stuck with a quite hospitable tribe of slash-burn farmers who just happen to attack...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Err, to work out a), in short, the theory is stalkers can't let go, so they still imagine being in a relationship[1]. As for amusement about racists, I more or less think everything and everyone amusing quite often. Humor is...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    It might have something to do with compartmentalization, quite high in authoritarians according to Altmeyer, though I also remember the guys most likely to not understand stalkers are other stalkers. They can't process the emotions, which is a) why they...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Hm, personal opinion, something akin to racism might be quite common, and I'm no exeption. Before you come to the wrong conclusions, OK, there is also the fun with ascribing personality traits etc. to groups quite quickly... I had (and...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Most of the weight seems to be inthe steel underbody, the optics, e.g. gratings etc. is quite light. Might have something to do with minimizing vibrations etc. IIRC most spectrophotometers from university were somewhat smaller and lighter, so seeing the...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    There is still no publication date for Good Omens the series, is there? As for religion in series, there is another series based on a book by Neil Gaiman, "American Gods". I don't remember much problems with the Jesus, err,...

    I'm guessing OGH, who is a pharmacist by trade is on top of this. A few points to that one... a) Charlie has mentioned in the past that he has been out of business as a pharmacist for some time....
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    I'm in Germany, and the deal I got was a Ford Transit for around 40 Euros a day, 50 km free, any extra km costs about 10 to 50 cents, I'd have to look up the specifics. I have been...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Err, there might be a slight problem if you're taking some other drugs, since St John's wort increases the production of some enzymes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypericum_perforatum#Pharmacokinetics Some antihypertensives being involved is somewhat worrying. At the risk of annoying OGH, but... If there...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Hm, I'm working on a nice reply to gasdive, but in the meantime... I've transported quite a few things with a bike and trailer in my time; I even tried it when moving between appartments, only to realize that it's...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Err, I invite you to helping out with my next shopping trip to the hardware store. Or car boot sale. Or... I guess you're also not into water sports, I guess. Err, no, not the urban dictionary use......
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage
    Err, please note that the Tiguan is based on a compact car. There are also some mid-size SUVs on the European Market. Personally, I guess I'll go for a Kleintransporter in the near future, e.g. a van below 3.5t. Usually...

    About 2 MW in 2012: https://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/snapshot.asp?privcapid=241328143 Though they might have added some installations, it's likely still at the same order of magnitude (e.g. less than 10x the capacity)...

    No ide3a if that was already brought up, but there is also the different crumble zone[1]. Of course, that might mean an advantage for rear-engine designs. [1] Called "Knautschzone" in German. Where a colloquial German word for "kissing" is "knutschen"....
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    As for the injury, keep some care, it sounds like a nerve compression syndrome. The nerve next to the knees apparently even got some martial arts strike targeting it. As for my revenge fantasies concerning gotcha guns, err, as John...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Hm, what about imbued airbags? Come to think about it, some of the concepts of reactive or ablative armour might be useful. I still would like to add a component to punish people throwing fireworks into groups etc. Speak softly...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    Err, I might not be done ranting, BTW... Somebody threw exploding firework against my knee yesterday, and I'm afraid I might develop bursitis again. Am I the only one hoping for a man-portable C-RAM system for next New Year's Eve?...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    The real fun is you could also use the calculation problem to argue against central planning in firms. Personally, I could do without quite a few CEOs and other managers and doling out work by popular consensus[1], no idea if...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    OK, we're well past the 1000th posting, so I might derail that one with a little personal rambling... First off, happy new year everyone. Second off, I just had a job interview with a somewhat confused HR woman[1] which IMHO...
