    Mr Speaker has just, effectively told Parliament, that they must decide whether to crash out or seek a second Referendum ... ( As well as signalling thathat we must ask for an extension of time, I think ) At this...

    Please remind me, which C american country is really horrible for women? ALL abortions are completely illegal no matter what the circumstances? Is it Guatemala, Honduras or Nicuragua? ( I suspect the last, but must admit I've lost the plot...

    JBS @ 624 At least one of the people taken itno custody was released quickly once they realised he was J Random Bloke who happened to be standing on the wrong grid-reference ... The others I know nothing of. Heteromeles...

    The succeeding pharohs & most importantly their priests ( The then Deep State of Egypt ) did their best to erase the memory of Akhenaten, did't they. Didn't work, though - link to the P Glass opera of the same...

    Sigh I would love to know what Tiffany Aching is doing now, now that she is wearing Midnight, but I suspect that Rhianna will not open that gate for anyone, more's the pity....

    I'm not sure If we are thinking of vile traitors in a normally peaceful society ... there's a reason Vidkun Quisling's name is remembered & reviled. River crossings of "Ole Man River" Close to or at ... New Orleans, Baton...

    From a current "indy" headline ... Labour refuses to back second referendum vote Party before country - again. Paws @ 488 As most of youo know, there are "other" resons for picking Gruinard ... ( Anthrax )...

    EC @ 480 Ah, I see where you are coming from, now ... rather than the Corbyn/McConnell line of raising personal taxes, because they are stupid .... Agree completely regarding "CGT" - treat it as INCOME, effectively. I'm not sure...

    Tim H @ 400 I believe many of the immensely wealthy do not wish to be governed, taxed or regulated. They somehow believe their wealth is responsible for the underlying economy, Ah the attitude of all too many High-Medieval "nobles"...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    In reverse order I agree about the river of dark money pushing "leave" ... though I would have thought that the realisation that every single claim made by brexit supporters - including the ones I swallowed - have shown to...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    W T Goodall @ 370 Like you, I'm assuming that ruling out "No Deal" will pass easily. Because of the "democratic deficit" ( Never mind that the original Brexit vote was rigged & was swamped in misinformation ) the actual...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    WHICH SET of guys, Charlie? The ultra-greedy "ERG" mob who want brexit at any price, including a full No-Deal, because they, personally profit, or the "moderate" brexiteers who are sold on some quasi-religious version of a "free" ( ha ha...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    Good. Now, we have the vote to outlaw "No Deal" - which I think is guaranteed to pass And then what - hopefully a move to postpone & a "people's vote". We shall see....

    Heteromeles @ 344 Right, that's a copy of "The Books of Eartsea" ordered ..... One of the tags for the SKA-array is that an airport radr could be detected at up to 50 ly .... What happpens IF we even...

    Charlie @ 327 So, Earth survives in/after Invisible Sun, if only minimally, because Rita (or other characters are alive ) oops, or not. Though I like the idea of a Space Opera playpen ........

    JBS @ 1346 I have mom's cat. She's at least 21 years old and about ready to go as well. She's stopped eating. To ease her passing - I know this phenomenon well, you may find that a cat will...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    SFR @ 315 Yes. That is exactly why I framed the statement that way ... in fact I got the idea from Uncle Albert, regarding the "Luminiferous Aether" - which is famously "Not detetctable" Similarly no form of BigSkyFairy is...

    whitroth @ 293 I'm not so sure about Cage ... I've seenheard excerpts for "Akenhaten" & it's impressive ... & there are definite echoes of Carl Orff in there....

    EC @ 268 actually, the "bigotry" of the physicists was back in the 1970-85 period .. Since then that acceptance of what is sometimes called the" Vaccuum Ctatstrophe" - the "slight" mismatch between Relativity & QM has come n=much more...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    JBS @ 235 How many times? Atheism is NOT a religion - it's the absence of one. That false idea is one often pushed by US xtian bastard liars, please don't pick it up? Otherwise ... spot on, especially the...

    DD @ 176 The universe would then be a giant concentration camp, with God as the commandant. Yes, well, so? and, of course ... "Has anyone noticed how close the Christian conception of “heaven” is so much like North Korea:...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    DD @ 153 Yes, well .. "Omniscient" / "Omnipresent" / "Omnipotent" are mutually impossible, anyway. And no amoount of deliberate lying theological wriggling can escape that slight problem. Back to Epicurus, chaps ... it's always amusing ( for certain values...

    Later on ... JRRT made it clear that ... It wasn't the Orc's fault. They had been deliberately constructed/warped that way by Melkor & then used by Sauron. Hence the deliberate contrast with the Uruk-Hai ( Saruman ) who seem...
  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    The Japanes adaptation of one of the Earthsea novels ( "Farthest Shore" I think ) was so utterly crap, & worse, WRONG, that Studio Ghibli or not, I walked out in loud disgust after about 8 minutes .......
