  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    Heh, heh. My social score is one of those that warp the pretty graphs. Same as when I get called for a political poll.... Note: I've been working with computers since 1980, first as a programmer, then a sysadmin. I...
  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    You're not reading widely enough. It was in a number of news stories in the last three months, that facial recognition fails on... Afro-American faces. I can just imagine them trying to do different african subtypes, and Asian subtypes......
  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    "Larger than 1000 social organizations"... you mean, like, say, Worldcon? Or the SCA (e.g. Pennsic)? Hell, Windycon, that I was at last weekend, was in the 1200-1400 range, and Balticon's 1400-1800....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    *Just* saw a story, to the effect that Facepalm hired a PR firm to write negative stories against opponents... including Soros stories. But, hey, who's setting up the betting pools? 1. How soon, and how many indictments Mueller will come...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Bankrupt, no problem. Don't let them screw their workers and everyone *but* the stockholders. Instead, have the state take them over, and run them as state, not privatized. Augh! Horror! SOCIALISM!!!!...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I do have to admit here that one of my grandfathers came here in '14. He'd been here in 1909, went back, but presumably push came to shove to avoid the draft. My other grandfather was a Deserter from the...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    On the one hand, nope, though that could be fun. As it is, it just wiggles. On the other hand, if that's superhuman/geneengineered, what mods for women? And how easy would it be to change sexes on, say, an afternoon...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    ROTFLMAO!!! For high amusement on the right side of the Pond... if it's not bad enough that the media is currently seeing Brexit as a disaster... Excerpt: Robert Mueller is seeking more information about Nigel Farage for his investigation into...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Terrible example. A more appropriate one would be returning Texas to Mexico.......
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Excerpt: we are increasingly a nation of urbanites and suburbanites. Almost 60 percent of us live in metropolitan areas with more than a million people, more than 70 percent in areas with more than 500,000 residents. --- end excerpt ---...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    They'd started moving that way during the twenties, since, as the party of business, they were HORRIFIED by the USSR, and SOCIALISM gaining power. A major part of the Cold War was "do everything we can to make them a...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    They're coming. I'm actually surprised they weren't filed Friday. Hmmm, Eater of Souls... of course, with the Malignant Carcinoma, I have doubts he has one - he's just a heel. But not visiting the European cemeteries "it's the Secret Service's...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    A *lot* of us want the whole GOP (Great Oligarchic Party) RICO'd. But about Pence... he was the head of Trumpolini's transition team. HE KNEW about Manafort a week after the election, because Rep. Cummings (D) sent him a registered...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Schiff (D) will be the new Chair of the House Intel committee, and he's already said they're going to revisit Nunes' report, and fix everything that was left out. Oh, that would be amusing: him on the committee, and hving...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Well... excerpt.... Speaking, very seriously, as a red diaper baby, with one recent exception, every single socialist, trotskyist, and communist party I've ever run into has the same relation to an actual political party that a fantasy sportsball league does...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    That's an absurd suggestion. It's more blacks, and lots of poor. A lot won't vote, but many will. And it's not the GOP who pushed that. Hell, my late ex had to beg the governor's office to have her right...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Ah, but there's one small catch: businesses are "artificial people". If I can badger my Congresscritter, it wouldn't take a Constitutional Amendment, just a law, or maybe just a court decision, that "artificial people" are not citizens... and so have...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Ageed. I'm appalled that we *lost* seats in the Senate, which was *critical*. On the other hand... some races are still too close to call, including Texas, Beto vs. Cruz, the man with the most punchable face in government. And...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    How 'bout the reverse of alla that? Most humans, suddenly, with godlike powers? Or on the way up to that (I would assume it's not *ping*, magic god dust)... what do you think would happen in the US, not to...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    The courts struck it down three times, but who's counting? It's not like all the GOP in the legislature will go to jail for a year or three.......
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Yes! Yes! Gojira! As opposed to Pacific Rim, this time I will *NOT* see it in 3-D, so I can enjoy it. Pacific Rim, due to timing issues, we saw in 3-D,a nd that was dreadful - the fight scenes...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    A tad confused here: the Great Game is, to me, the one played by the UK, and France, and Germany, and Russia....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Game...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    A black hole, which then proceeds to evaporate, or Inflate, depending on the size?...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    The Malignant Carcinoma, if we don't take back at least the House? And de-gerrymander for 2020? Horrid thought....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    They've lost use of their legs? Sounds like Bradbury's The Last Pedestrian....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Long brass rods? Oh, hell, second reading isn't what I thought I read the first time; I was hoping you could mount it on a ship, sail up the Potomac, and give the WH a broadside....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    And, just to add to this, I just saw today on slashdot that some idiot company is selling a lawer-powered bong - yes, the laser lights the weed, and it's 5mW, and they give you glasses to go with it,...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Good gods.... I mentioned a story last week; going through the weekend's posts (I was at World Fantasy, btw, working the consuite, of course), and some other posters thoughts, and one which led me to a closer than the novel...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I think I saw that headling (I read the Buardian every day - news, not infotainment), but it hadn't hit....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    The meters broadcasting, so that they can just drive by and read, rather than have to come inside, I guess. But my gas? electric? (I forget) co offered me an Internet Connected Thermostat!!!, and I told them were to get...
