  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Someone has declared March 4th to be Weird Pride Day, considering that humans manage to be simultaneously absurd and remarkable, they have a point: https://neuroclastic.com/2021/03/01/march-4th-is-weird-pride-day/ I expect it to not be observed by all who qualify....

    Sounds like Tom Lehrer's "National Brotherhood Week"....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    First, good to know you're still this side of the grass. Second, allegedly pure white folk might wish to not look too closely at their "23 and Me" results, or think about the implications of, to make it simple,...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I've encountered women wearing scents that could give "Axe", or it's predecessor, "Brut" a run for the money on offensiveness, and when my sinusitis is acting up, both are physically uncomfortable....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    A sixties thing on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Taunus The 1966 model was supposed to be a Ford Cardinal for the US markets, sometime after the departure of Robert McNamara, Ford got cold feet and sent the project to Ford Europe. Something...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Agree heartily on your opinion on OGH & his blog, when Jerry Pournelle* was on this side of the grass, I'd read his too, and felt confident that somewhere between was a good approximation of reality (Mostly, but not...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I wonder if part of the difficulty in getting "Socialism lite" is with what it amuses me to think of as "The Mammonite heresy", IOW, "If any working stiff's children can reach their potential, and live comfortably, how do...

    Mark Twain was the correct answer....

    Also, best of luck, you're much more interesting on this side of the grass....
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Might it be possible that narrow minded fuckwits push folk who would otherwise attempt to live with what biology stuck them with into transition? And in so doing, did an unwitting kindness....
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Sounds even worse than whoever inspired Michael Nesmith's "Neighborhood Nuclear Supremacy" from"Elephant Parts". Anyone who works the "Anne Rice shift" can relate....
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Voting for Carter in 1976 is something I regret, his policies were neoliberal (With added ethics), Reagan largely turned Carter's policies to 11 and shitcanned the ethics. If Reagan had a hypothetical 2nd term Ford administration to build on,...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Looks to me that the .01% have lost upwards momentum and they're making life miserable for everyone else to compensate. They want a lot of space between them and the little folk even more than they want more....
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    If you can move that much mass, put a Titan in orbit around Mars. The tides might even restart a magnetic field, so you could keep any air or water you introduced, and a defrosted Titan might be worthwhile....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    A tumbril? Cut short the time he can reflect on his failure? While dancing the hemp fandango might be what he deserves, irrelevance might be a more suitable punishment. BTW, the link was to Roy Clark's "Thank God and...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    For artistic reasons, I'd like to see "Drumph!" leave Washington, D.C. in a Greyhound bus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx8x3LCnYZw...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Something positive to remember: http://www.jewishworldreview.com/0908/3stooges.php3 Comparisons to NAZIs has the problem of making "Drumph!" look competent, but I am still amused that the Howard brothers & Larry Fine mocked Hitler so effectively....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I believe what's been happening has been degrading the soft power of the U.S., chipping away at our respectability... is it too paranoid to suggest that the goal of contemporary conservatism is to insure that no government can push...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I liked the '84, built on the fox body, light enough to be fast with an unnaturally aspirated 2.3L....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Without a regulatory overhaul, something like the Ami is not a transportation solution in much of the world....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I wonder if the "Trumplodytes" remember what became of the brown shirts?...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I was using definitions of compact & subcompact that the Department of Transportation uses, by those, compact cars have been a U.S. thing since the autumn of '59 and the Pinto was too short to be a compact by...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    AFAIK,the Vega existed to make Pinto & Gremlin owners feel better about their choices. Routine maintenance on the contemporary imports was a more expensive proposition, as I don't believe they'd yet implemented hydraulic lash adjustment in their engines, higher...

    There's also the used market, if older EVs get into a price range I could afford*, a range degraded to 100 km would mean I might need to charge it twice weekly, less expensive than even American gasoline. *Working...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    The Pinto front suspension has had an afterlife in kit cars because of it's compactness*, but if you recognize one, it should be referred to as a "Mustang II" part, lest one give offense. *Also didn't prematurely wear out...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    But not much worse than contemporary imports, some of which generated a market for aftermarket replacement of ill-considered OEM parts choices. And perhaps, we should not mention the appallingly under powered Chevette....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Lighter weight cars are technicably possible, but getting them certified for use on public roads is liable to be more challenging. For example, a European based auto firm eyeing the U.S. market must consider whether a given model will...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    That you didn't like American subcompacts doesn't mean they didn't exist....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Did you mean "Tesla S"? The 3 isn't that much larger than a Golf. But vehicle sizes are getting out of hand in the U.S., especially trucks & SUVs....
