    If the tech is developed to build a general purpose housekeeper/ sexbot, we won't have to think hard to guess who they'll be marketed to. Damned shame they must torment humans, when something in PVC would be a better fit...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    So, use a small bottle? Even an eighth liter would make difference over time....
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    One more reason to find uses that do not need the consistency of new resins/ pellets....

    There's still the possibility of repurposing plastic waste in applications where it doesn't matter if the shredded material has multiple varieties or dyes. Such as using plastic as an ingredient in paving mixtures. https://e360.yale.edu/features/how-paving-with-plastic-could-make-a-dent-in-the-global-waste-problem https://advancedplastiform.com/plastic-asphalt-for-new-roads/ Or one could go the...

    Rapid travel would be assured, one's arrival intact, at a single destination... not so much....
  • Commented on WTF
    But wait, there's more: https://www.statnews.com/2023/01/11/air-pollution-neurology-alzheimers-parkinsons-environmental-health/ Yet more in the ongoing Compound Failure*. 8or something else that begins with those letters......
  • Commented on WTF
    A good point that I suspect is becoming less true over time. Hopefully, I won't be around to see the Mammonites "Blossom" into a religion....
  • Commented on WTF
    The short answer is "Because they can". Not the only reason, there's also a social need to see a lot of distance between their selves and average people and to prove they have the favor of Mammon. There are still...
  • Commented on WTF
    The Mote in God's Eye, 1974 Niven & Pournelle described a smart phone-ish hand held communicator device. Jerry Pournelle writing a column for BYTE suggests a better idea of what might be possible, though he misguessed the date by 2...
  • Commented on WTF
    1/2" (SAE) fasteners were very common in the U. S. before they were replaced by 13mm (Which looks close enough to 1/2", but isn't.). The bastard size socket head fasteners would've made sense at the time, because metric hex keys...
  • Commented on WTF
    Not quite here yet, but happy New Year, may the celebrant's hangovers be nonexistent, may the WTFs be nontoxic, may the sufferers of rectal-cerebral inversion be cured and may the Mammonites be possessed of a moderate spirit....
  • Commented on WTF
    No, largely it was his reward for not agreeing with everything the Bush administrations* did. Such as suggesting our National interest had little to do with Iraq. *Still waiting to hear of an intimate hair care business with the cheek...
  • Commented on WTF
    Works the other way to, Jerry Pournelle was not consdidered conservative enough late in his life. Which suggests to me they're making it up as they go....
  • Commented on WTF
    If memory serves, the first large wind turbine in the United States was built in the forties, but suffered a broken blade and was not repaired...add engineering data to build better blades, as a successful prototype might've led to better...
  • Commented on WTF
    Two titles come to mind concerning SF novels and messages to the past, Greg Benford's "Timescape" and Strieber & Kunetka's "War Day and the Journey Onward". In both novels world saving messages were sent, creating a fork, no saving their...
  • Commented on WTF
    IMNSHO,it would be "Less worse"* if the usual suspects didn't believe "Trash people"** didn't deserve to be treated as human. *Less worse, because it's a multi-faceted Charlie Foxtrot. **Many of whom, under more favorable circumstances, would've done alright, as would...
  • Commented on WTF
    London surrendering to the Scots or Welsh would probably work better than a BoJo rerun....
  • Commented on WTF
    Zip code + four delivers the higher resolution here, and I would need to look at a piece of mail before I could tell anyone what mine was....
  • Commented on WTF
    When the lottery went in in Missouri, it was sold as money for education... they never explicitly said it would be in addition to existing funding, unsurprisingly the previous funding dried up, leaving education in an unimproved financial position....
  • Commented on WTF
    Not so very far, a reliquary would really take up little additional room at your bank's lobby....
  • Commented on WTF
    You are correct, but from the viewpoint of the Mammonites, you will be dehumanized, even if you're an insufficiently blessed practitioner. I'm not particularly social, and that's not improving as I age. Often I feel safer when I think of...
  • Commented on WTF
    The short answer, as subhumans. Longer answer, reprising history, building on "Use it up, wear it out, make it do"....
  • Commented on WTF
    What more valuable relic could there be for a "Child of Mammon" than authentic physical relics of departed billionaires? i would imagine that someone who accumulated a fortune pre-Reagan/Thatcher might be considered more sacred than those who made fortunes under...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Renewables + a lot of storage can be sufficient to run most of a civilization. Whether such a solution's economically feasible raises the question "Should life-essential services be optimized for maximum profit?", I suggest the answer is "No"....
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Ha!...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    It amuses me to characterize the super sized pick ups as "My very own monster truck!"....
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Closest thing to that would be a Ford Maverick hybrid, which gets that sort of mileage, though the bed's on the short side....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I suspect a part of the eligible but unregistered issue is "Bothsiderism", where the more...excitable reactionaries are compared to long dead southern Democrats, etc. . There's also the divided loyalties of elected politicians, between the interests of their campaign contributors...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I have mixed feelings about the election, pleased that my Representative, Emmanuel Cleaver, MO 5, won, pleased that cannabis has been legalized. Disappointed we still have two (Formerly)* GOP Senators. *The legislature has been redrawing MO 5 to include more...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    You make a good point, in my, decades ago, church experience, there was always at least a few who took the gospels seriously, but they were never a majority....
