  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    That works fairly well. I'm quite keen on sticking with established standards and just using Planck units everywhere myself....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    It should read 10^20 of course. Surprised nobody told me off for that....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Looks clear enough to me. Now in base 7 you get: 244021451361036, or 2.44*7^20. Much better obfuscation....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    I'm sure there is a spinal Tap reference to be had there....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    We tell the voters that they are getting their old money back but we are actually planning a new base e system....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Trump eventually going down because he was too stupid to realise he was being exonerated would be glorious....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    They told me that the trade agreement with R'lyeh wouldn't include freedom of movement....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    A firm belief that the lawnmower is worth more than the access is sure to help with negotiations....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    They have already assassinated one. It didn't seem to make much difference....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    There are a couple of problems there. The first is that the people who most need to be hung from lamp posts are the ones with followers who are most inclined to do the hanging. The second is that it...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    At this point I think the UK is most useful to the EU as an object lesson. As a denizen of the UK this isn't particularly comforting....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Of course they are extremely pissed off with the UK leadership and I'm sure that they will happily give us the boot on the grounds that we are more trouble than we are worth....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Also, why isn't the EU position, "we will ignore the British tantrum until they come to their senses?" I'm pretty sure that was their position until recent events reminded them that half the people in the UK are not keen...

    Why not just build dams around Antarctica and Greenland? We could make them out of transparent material to allow ice inspections and build a sunshade over the top to save the remaining ice. Then when Cthulhu rises we can distract...
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    bad SyFy weekend movie Isn't that a tautology? ;-) They paid good money for that 3D shark model. You wouldn't want it to be wasted would you?...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    I agree. Same applies to other isms. Various friends have standing orders to kick my ass if I step out of line. Life long social conditioning is hard to see around....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    So Theresa May has offered to resign. I'm not sure that it changes very much in the short term, but I think it's time to start making plans to emigrate to the moon if Boris or JRM get the top...
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    Being almost unwatchable was what he was aiming for, so mission accomplished. Personally I enjoyed it on balance but it did test my cringe endurance at times....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well this is entertaining: https://twitter.com/peterwalker99/status/1110521942350721024 Organisations made up of "Grand Wizards" and "blueshirts" are just the sorts of things that make me think "democracy"....
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    Change them to match the laundry files timeline. Mass human sacrifices here we come!...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    1. Unknown but her husband is in an excellent position to capitalise on the situation, particularly with advance warning. It's not insider trading if it's a whole country is it? 2. That is certainly the aim of some of them,...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    The collapse would be due to wreckers. The disagreement would be over who the wreckers are....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    They have been ignoring 48% of the people who voted since the referendum. Ignoring a few million people online is easy peasy. First it is less than the number of the people who voted leave. Then it is less than...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    The year long immunity only applies to removal attempts within the Conservative party. It doesn't apply to parliamentary confidence votes, but they are really hard to pull off as ruling parties tend to come together in the face of outside...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    It's tempting but the hard part always seems to be getting the hangings to stop....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    I don't think anyone seriously expects the petition or Saturdays march to make a difference. As a thousand to one shot it is still worth a go though. Payoff matrix says "sign"....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    I'm willing to accept it as mostly genuine. My reasoning is that the voting patterns are tracking the referrendum results reasonably closely. There's a population density aspect for sure, but areas that were strongly remain in 2016 still are, and...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well, the powers were granted as part of the withdrawl act on the understanding that they wouldn't be abused too much. There is nothing beyond good manners to prevent them from being abused....
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    That was when the penny dropped and everyone who hadn't been paying attention though "Holy shit! there isn't even going to be an attempt to resolve this!"...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Well I'm sure that everyone would agree about the legitimacy of that approach, and winning debates by shutting inconvenient legislatures down always goes so well....
