    Had a similar experience when I competed in an amateur bicycle race one summer, another competitor was on the H.S. track team, when I won, only because the semi-pros waited a lap too late to overtake, the track runner...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I'm thinking we'll have no real idea until it happens. I also think it's been too late to avoid something unpleasant for a long time, there's got to be a lot of inertia in terrestrial weather systems. "Conservatives" will...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    In short, it seems to be "Our masters require a tax cut" so programs that impact the 99% are all in danger and ACA especially, because it has the name of a person of color. but here's a couple...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    A lot of that feels familiar, ever run into neurotypicals who are certain that you're just being difficult?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I hadn't heard the term "Dark triad" before, I like it. Would it make "Herr Drumph!" the President of mentally ill America?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I think only Jews can claim that much historical continuity, with everyone else, the connection is tenuous, christians have a more substantial connection to Latin Pagan religions. If they owned up to it, they'd be happier......

    The Apple gear isn't as bad as all that, auto(in)correct will present you with it's proposed malapropism so the user has veto power, if user is paying attention. And I'm past 60 and find Apple's smallest current phone screen...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Emotion and pain recognition by neural networks could make workplaces even more interesting. The safe money would be to bet on this information being used against older staff....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    How many sales will be out of nostalgia? Looks like an Atari Portfolio with up to date innards, a good thing, but niche....
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    Dark Morris dancers? I'm visualizing a dance centered on a Morris automobile, beseeching Joseph Lucas, the prince of darkness, to return vitality to the electrical system....
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    Too true, but the Democrats have a reputation for apologizing and using lube before the inevitable....
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    My impression is that "suits" are only interested in important lessons if they're suitable as a blunt instrument for self promotion....
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    Working class all my life, Father's family did the tenant farmer thing before WW2, white trash comes uncomfortably easy. Remembering what I've read of "The treasonous slaveholder's revolt", AKA, "The mint julep inspired blue ribbon clusterfuck", the elite of...
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    A non-damaging idea for windows, some years ago during a cold snap I cut some foamed polystyrene to fit the bedroom windows and it helped a lot. Covering the foam with something, possibly winter solstice materialism festival paper, or...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    To a War department that had already fire bombed, and had not seen what a city looks like after an atomic bombing, such a suggestion would have sounded daft. A demonstration blast might not have impressed as much as...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    "The treasonous slaveholder's rebellion" AKA the mint julep inspired clusterfuck of mythological proportions, gives as much evidence as should be required of how worthwhile it isn't to pursue low labor costs to the exclusion of most other concerns. The...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    There's been attempts, traditions and history make the south a little more of a Charlie Foxtrot than the rest of the country....
  • Commented on Radio silence
    True, Lincoln was left no other alternative to preserve the union, given the intransigence of the south. They had hoped to spread their peculiar institution across the nation, Lincoln's election meant at the minimum it would be confined to...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    Good point, but it's not easy to imagine a Klan overlay on the app store....
  • Commented on Radio silence
    I favor correcting the plaques on the statues. Augmented reality may take care of that, with a depth of information about objects in view, such as the experiences of slaves at Robert E. Lee's Arlington plantation, or virtually placing...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    Best system of government money can buy. Shame the money's a bit myopic....
  • Commented on Radio silence
    What complicates the perception of Chinese growth in the United States is it's use by American elites as a bludgeon against U.S. labor....
  • Commented on Radio silence
    I'd say more like the Wile E. Coyote moment....
  • Commented on Radio silence
    I'd like to blame it on "memetic disease", influential folk with ideas that feel comfortable to them, don't contradict their prejudices, yet conceptually, have more in common with fertilizer than thought. Such as having seen a stupid person with...
  • Commented on Radio silence
    Watched that this afternoon, geek culture.com has it embedded on their home page, and "Joy of Tech" is also running an anti-NAZI theme....
  • Commented on Help Wanted at the Climate Policy Sausage Factory
    Something to bear in mind, if your vehicle doesn't crumple in a collision, the occupants are exposed to larger accelerations, leading to more severe injuries....
  • Commented on Help Wanted at the Climate Policy Sausage Factory
    As good an answer as is likely as long as business plans include something like "Find serf equivalents to do this."....
  • Commented on Help Wanted at the Climate Policy Sausage Factory
    This may complicate your question more, but how far away are we from the point where an order puller at a distribution center or a cashier at a "Big Box Mart" can think about decarbonizing?...
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    From my un-exalted perspective, we have a handful of influential folk who feel that more adjacent misery would provide the contrast that would render them more glorious, manipulating a larger group that incorrectly feel "Gone With The Wind" is...

    My sympathies as well. May their passing be gentle....
