    You'll be lucky if anything like that is in stock. You'd be better off with something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=plague+doctor+mask Cheaper too, and more to the point (so to speak). Yes, a plague doctor mask is very topical these days. I...

    Hey, you missed that the impeached resident of 1600 PA Ave, Washington, DC, voted in the primary in FL, claiming Mar-a-Lago as his residence. And Pence voted in the primary in IN, claiming the GOVERNOR'S MANSION, which he moved out...

    I've not tried to join a libertarian group (because I haven't seen one do anything I care about). I'm reminded of the 2016 Libertarian political convention, of which a reporter quipped, "Half of the attendees would like to see Vermin...

    And my online persona as Heteromeles isn't quite the same as I am in real life, because on the internet, no one knows I'm a cat. We're all cats on the internet....

    Artillery tables were a bit later, because it was during the course of WW1 that the techniques of predicted fire were developed. At the start of the war the fire of land artillery was all directed by feedback, and different...

    Surely there's a dodgy scrap metal dealer that would recycle the metal if a load of fence sections just happened to appear* in their scrapyard… Alternately, couldn't the city dismantle the fence and bill the contractor? The second one is...

    THANK YOU! I had not seen anything about the construction permit violation... Here is an article from Bike Portland, a group which cares about obstructed bike lanes in Portland; they have a copy of the letter from the city. You...

    Do any of you know of a novella (available online) which describes an invasion of elves from parallel Earth, very similar to Charlie's "Nightmare Stacks"? From what I recall, the psychology of elves in that story was pretty much identical...

    Clinton as AG sounds great, but all the usual perps would say that she's out for vengeance every time she nails them, and it would be annoying to prove that she was just following the law, even if she was....

    Yeah. People keep comparing him to Buchanan, but the person I see when I think of Trump in a historical context is Kaiser Wilhelm. Of course, he's the modern type specimen for addressing the question What Happens When a Bad-Tempered,...

    Showing the wisdom and restraint we associate with the Trump administration, a few hours ago federal agents tear gassed the mayor of Portland. The article says federal agents have already whined that what they did wasn't their fault and that...

    While Hillary would certainly have been the target of intrusion attempts using a State server, there is no way her own was more secure than the official one. Using a private server and her own device was foolish and arrogant....

    I like how they're so subtle as to put up barricades. Want to make the veterans in the unit feel like they're in Fallujah again, so that they're more likely to treat the locals as hostiles? That part might be...

    All I can say is that you should spread the news around. Has anyone confirmed that the Feds are renting from Enterprise? I've told the hotel visit story closer to home too. (Anyone willing to muck through Facepalm can probably...

    I keep waiting to hear what the LGMs considered response will be nice time a slim, young, white woman strips off and does yoga in front of them. The first time it was a shock and they just mumbled and...

    They at least had to read the preface? first chapter? "How to buy a used VW" ... I've never actually sat on the hood[1] and chanted "Om" but yes, there's timeless advice there. My father once told me to buy...

    Find out where the Feds are sleeping - they're quite possibly staying in a hotel somewhere. Somewhere, right. Somewhere. * Insert dramatic beat for the video dramatization version * There have been rumors circulating about where that somewhere might be,...

    I'm 3 time zones away; it's not local to me either. It's too damn local for me; I live two miles from this. If you, or anyone, have questions for locals I'm happy to answer. The Moms were tear-gassed a...

    The other likely scenario is one of the infinite variations on "something shorted, things went boom." I've read that a contributing factor was that the fire had time to establish itself before being discovered, so that seems very likely....

    Sorry, ignore that last link; I should have second-checked what I pasted. This is the naked woman versus police link: https://www.rt.com/usa/495163-naked-protester-portland-police/amp/...

    And if Portland weren't already weird enough, last night riot police retreated from a naked woman doing yoga. At this point the writers of 2020 are out of plans and are just throwing in any idea that comes to mind....

    How do we know that? Even if true, there must be an open trial, not "disappearance" - & what happens if they were actually after a real "violent extremist" - & got the worng person .. Sadly, yes, this is...

    You're such a pessimist. Dour Scott and all that: <next post> "Scot", damnit. #@!%& autocorrect... apologies to Scots everywhere.. Feh, I'm feeling pretty dour these days too....

    I'm betting on stupidity, myself (probably with an interaction effect with Murphy's Law). I was downwind of the ship burning in San Diego, although I didn't get much of the smoke. Fun week. Ordinary stupidity, yes, as in "That needs...

    The current era has been so stressful that when I read of a Navy ship on fire I felt perverse relief that finally there was a normal tragedy that just happened rather than being intentionally caused by stupidity, greed, or...

    I just read that article in full IF DT & (?)BArr(?) get away with it, that's it. The article about unidentified masked armed people grabbing citizens off the street and making them disappear? Yeah, that's very bad. That's something from...

    People... conduct... financial... transactions...on *T*W*I*T*T*E*R*?!?!?!?!?! ... THEY'RE TOO STUPID TO OWN A COMPUTER. I'm not arguing. What part of financial transactions via Twitter using Bitcoin sounds good to anyone? Yet apparently this is a thing. *eyeroll*...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Apropos of nothing much, save possibly 2020's general crappiness, yesterday saw Twitter hacked for a Bitcoin scam, on the theory that if you offer something stupid to millions of people a few of them will be stupid. The take seems...

    Starting up schools with a few clumps of dead teachers and kids will likely lead to rout for Biden. Sadly, that has already begun even before the normal school year starts. To save you a click: In Arizona three teachers...

    The anti-migration/anti-immigration wave will die, and sooner, rather than later. Tell me, do you know any US citizen who's looking to hire on to a farm, to do what's referred to as "stoop labor"? Sorry, I don't see it. The...
