  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Not Mo's head - Mo's diary. Leaves a lot more wiggle room....
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    (Rootkit less than exploit, but the point holds - these are not advanced technical terms known only to an elite few.)...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Your argument appears to be based around the idea that behaviour is constrained by the jobs people have. You don't have to work in IT to be a computer geek (I'm a scientist, and I'm a computer geek - so...

    Police officers can't also be computer nerds?...
  • Commented on Annihilation Score round-up
    "But. Bob, wtf. "I really need to talk to someone about applied containment theory. When I get time"?!?! Yes, I get it, but damn it, that's your WIFE. GRRRRRRR." To be fair, if you suddenly became responsible for cleaning up...

    My read is more that it's not a deficit in talent, but rather a deficit in talented people who can get the job done while (literally) under fire. I seem to remember something along these likes mentioned in TAA....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Rhesus Chart
    Not true at all - in fact, there is at least one gene (DRD4) associated with both schizophrenia and heroin addiction....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Rhesus Chart
    "If you've ever seen a goat climb things, I'd say that it's pretty good at the 3-d computing needed for that task. You try building a robot to do that." Exactly. Your average goat may be mediocre at calculus, but...

    As I fully expect everyone to die in the end, I'm in no rush to see the culmination of CNG......
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Speaking of books 8 and 9: Is the series still planned to be nine books plus a book of novellas?...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Psychological trauma and overwork can sap reasoning skills pretty badly - I don't find it all that unrealistic that Mo's not at the top of her game....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Rhesus Chart
    Rather than face the zoo that is Reddit, I'll ask a question here, if you don't mind (since this thread is on The Rhesus Chart). Toward the end of the book, Bob describes items found on George's person - but...

    I went back for a quick re-read (it's available on Gaiman's site), and the note written by the antagonist (near the end of the story) seems to strongly suggest that the antagonists are Holmes and Watson, while the story itself...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Rhesus Chart
    If you're referring to Gaiman's marvellous "A Study in Emerald", Holmes was actually working against our squamous overlords....
  • Commented on Reminders
    Does that 30% end up on the cutting room floor?...
  • Commented on Reminders
    (Note that it's not just a nitpicky question - in my bookstore-bereft corner of Canada, a round trip to a decent bookstore takes close to three hours of bus time...)...

    Not ragging at him, just wanted to be sure the release date hasn't been pushed back at the last second (like three other books I've been waiting for this year)....
  • Commented on Reminders
    Thursday? I thought the release date was 7 July......
