  • Commented on What I published in 2018
    AND unless Dublin 2019's plans and venue have seriously changed, there will be flush toilets. Serious bonus!...
  • Commented on What else can you do with a Big Dumb Booster?
    My crack research team says this was actually "The Uranus Experiment 2". I remember it being billed as the most expensive porno ever made. There are benefits to knowing coroners that used to own an adult book store in a...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    It occurs to me that, as surveyors, the Corps of Discovery would be under the Army Corps of Engineers. I just like the idea of the Corps having even more bizarre corners than I've already found. Most mundane agencies have...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    My brain sings with bureaucratic delight as it tries to figure out where to put a non-evil American equivalent to SOE-Q, which the Black Chamber has coincidentally failed to yet find, quash, or assimilate. Can there be a very, VERY...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Well then, that goes on the stack. Considering how many conversations I have with journalists that go along the lines of "Interesting question. To properly answer this $VERY_MODERN_QUESTION we're going to need to discuss the maniple system and the Samnite...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Other than "The Nightmare Stacks"? Let's see. "1177BC - The Year Civilization Collapsed" by Eric Cline: A summary of the end of the Bronze Age civilization that was, to me at least, displaying surprisingly long distance trade networks and cosmopolitan...
  • Commented on A game of consequences
    Your latter metaphor is apt for high dose rates and the incredibly high energy particulate radiations you just can't shield worth a damn, like interstellar cosmic rays. But that is not why adult cockroaches are less radiosensitive. Pigeon is quite...
  • Commented on A game of consequences
    I'm honestly not certain what anyone is thinking of when they talk about genetically modifying humans to be radiation resistant. The idea of having humans that are as radiation resistant as cockroaches fails to take into account the fundamental biological...
  • Commented on A game of consequences
    The old Big Dead Place blog had so much more content on it than the book. The book was a fairly cohesive tale going back and forth between big picture structural insanity and the personal scale of "normal people don't...
  • Commented on A game of consequences
    As far as looking to the Antarctic example for law enforcement I, umm, don't recommend following the American example. Making your station managers special deputy US Marshals for contingency purposes, without much in the way of training how to do...
  • Commented on A game of consequences
    After spending a year at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, and doing my normal thing of absorbing institutional knowledge, my enjoyment of most all space opera was ruined by extrapolating from by experience to that. SPAAAAACE doesn't compute as "Star Wars"...
  • Commented on Service update
    I would love some additional commentary. I admit as someone far from political ground zero, this makes me something of a rubbernecker but I still like the insight. Something I really don't get to hear much opinion from is the...
