    Meanwhile not spending any money on the important bits of NASA - like Earth-Observation staellites that show GW ... Oh & apparently, NASA will have something important to tell us on Thursday ... Probably to do with the Kepler probe/telescope...

    They'll refuse to even discuss it, and vilify anyone who tries to. Which should tell us something, but what? 1] They are in favour of BTC (entirely possible ) & want to encourage it by leaving it alone. 2] They...

    ...a difference between religion and spirituality. Oh dear ... And what, precisely is supposed to be meant by "spirituality"? Every time I see or hear that word I ... "Reach for my revolver" as the saying goes, simply because it...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    This is akin to the Biblical saying that the love of money is the root of all evil.... Which, as usual with religious texts & dogma, disagrees with other parts of christian belief & practice, where "Pride" was & is...

    No A "Crown" used to be worth 25p = 5/- Because "Half-Crowns" - which I well-remember, were 1/8th of a £, ie. 2/-6d. See also Mayhem @ 786 - a controlled SMALL amount of inflation is actually good for an...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    But the 1920's-German example does not translate to Zimbabwe in very recent years, nor the close shave we had with runaway inflation in the early-mid 1970's does it? Or, another two I've remembered, Argentina a few years back or Venezuela...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    Note to Moderators: Please delete my previous screwed-up post? ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ [[done - mod]] The solutions you suggest are fine, but in theory a country could just keep creating more money and living with the inflation. Really? But we know what...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    Not a historian, but seriously, war's the stupidest, most ineffective, wasteful and uneconomical idea HSS has ever come up with. NO That's Religion....

    and the police didn't manage to "break" any of them or get reliable forensic evidence... Err, no. The local deeply racist cops ( No-one above "Inspector" level ) were in cahoots with said local small-time pink gangsters, who were even...

    But the need is to solve the larger problem -- end the wars and climate problems that are driving the crisis There's a very old suggestion for solving that one: "Hang all the priests" ... Um, err ..... See also...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    I ran across a free communist magazine the other day, called, simply "Worker" It was ranting on about how the EU was an evil capitalist rip-off & "we" wanted out ( Nazi-Soviet pact style, though, of course, they didn't say...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    She will have seen the xpert reports that tell us what some of us already know - that leaving & worse leaving we=ith no deal will be an utter disister. Publication is probably being dragged out, so that the magnitude...

    Primitive religious blackmail gains traction in Britain. ( & not just either part of Ireland, either ) This is disgraceful....
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    The only case I can think of in the UK was the vile Nicholas Hoogstraten ... And even he pushed his luck & left the country, as the authorities were plainly unhappy with his actions, shall we say? As for...

    This & "Quora" Many ignorant & uninformed but honest USA peeps (* ) on Quora, but also several trolls, who derail conversations or ask deliberately "have-you-stopped-beating-your wife" questions. Navigating those can be "fun" sometimes. But, every so oftern a golden...

  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    This is uterly totally bonkers. How long can this carry on for before the inevitable crash, either because the BTC bubble bursts or "we" run out of electrical power? I'm trying to think of an historical parallel, where resources were...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    I just came across ... This fascinating noticeboard discussion Comparing supposed & real "freedom" in the US & UK. Comments, anyone? Charlie - you're familiar with the USA? Heteromeles?...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    Talking of mad, &/or traitorous &/or incompetent politicians (as we were ...) The "Indie" is not a tory-lurving screed, but this piece on Corbyn seems to be on the mark unfortunately. It is well-worth remembering the JC is agreeing wiht...

    AND Replying to my self @ 640 / 641 Re: Falklands - read the wiki entry - everyone - PLEASE? Anyone's knee-jerk reaction that .. "it was a Brit colony, therfore the Brits are evil occupiers" is snmply wrong, especially...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    Again - bollocks Look up Battle of Falklands - naval WW I encounter Britain had a small naval base in the islands, which turned out to be useful So your statement about nothing before 1947 is pure unadultereted tosh, OK?...

    Charlie ... really! Bollocks. SEE ALSO EC @ 610 Or The battle off the Falklands in ? 1915 ? ( 1914? ) I assume you are simply shit-stirring for fun. We have more imprtasnt things to worry about, like the...

    Sukarno ... the blame for that pissing match ultimately lies with the British and Dutch empires for stealing Indonesia and Malaysia in the first place. We should be paying reparations. Maybe, maybe not, but IRRELEVANT. The Brits were doing the...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    I am in partial agreement - certainly as reagrds the madwoman from Grantham. So - are you suugesting that, as Corbyn apparently wanted to, we should have let the Argentine Fascist Junta take over the Falklands, or Sukarno's thugs take...
