  • Commented on Forthcoming UK Audio Books
    As far as I remember Trainspotting was not released with subtitles in Canada, province of the US that we may be. My wife and I watched it together on DVD and she had no problem understanding the accents. (Since I...
  • Commented on PSA: Ignore the news
    Probably been said by many other people, but explosive grade nitrate fertilizer is not hard to come by and is heavily used in agriculture. Mixed 50/50 with diesel and a blasting cap used to detonate it it forms a very...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    An excellent point I was unaware of. Syllabics have gained a similar status in parts of Canada. There is pressure from Greenlandic Inuit and those Canadian Inuit who use Roman script to abandon syllabic script. Inuit in the Eastern Arctic...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    This is still further off topic, but... The Roman alphabet was not as prevalent in missionary work as you think. In northern Canada people still use a syllabic alphabet developed by missionaries based on Pitman shorthand and devangiri script. It...
  • Commented on New Guest Blogger: Ian Tregillis
    Ummm... Actually I believe that whatever the origins of the Nazi Party,dabbling with the occult was also quite popular (as it was with many other groups around then). The Thule Society was not invented by our host, after all -...
  • Commented on New Guest Blogger: Ian Tregillis
    I have read both Bitter Seeds and The Coldest War and I can both second the high opinion of the first and state that The Coldest War was also very good - too bad about the cover art, though. The...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    I bet you don't have telescoping steering wheels as a matter of course either....
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    I live in a small city in northern Canada, with an active hunting community. I would be astonished if gun ownership here approached even 50% of the population. Even a number of the farmers I know (Like my Dad) don't...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    Like all wars, it was ultimately about financial gain, whether expressed in terms of money, land, furs, cowrie shells or slaves....
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    That would have the added advantages of reducing the number of gun owners and giving the grizzlies (and any other bears, for that matter) a high fat and high protein dietary supplement for hibernation....
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    Most perpetrators of mass shootings (or stabbings in China) are single males who find their traditional social and cultural roles increasingly insecure. In this sense, yes, they are incompetent, or feel themselves incompetent, because they cannot fulfill the roles that...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    Not really. Guns are common enough in Canada. But not nearly as ubiquitous as in the US. Also the type of firearms are quite different. As far as I know fully automatic hand guns are impossible for individuals to own....
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    I agree. Firearms are quite common where I live, but seldom used in violence. There are plenty of economic problems, certainly a sense of powerlessness, but it just doesn't seem (so far) to play out in more than pub brawls....
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    Sorry about the atrocious grammar, I did not proofread that one. "I suspect that most people, like myself stopped at the schools and cinemas comment and did not read too carefully thereafter."...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    An excellent point. I suspect most people, like myself, the schools and cinemas comment and did not read too carefully thereafter....
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    Possibly because I am not an American, I find the idea that elementary and high schools, not to mention cinemas, should NOT be gun free zones to be surreal. Firearms are a tool - used in rural areas in my...
