    Moz @ 301 People differ - some can learn simpy by copying & many ms=usicians do so. I have learnt a lot that way, as have we all. BUT Once you are past the age of 6 or so, certainky,...

    David L & Pigeon Yes, well - I'm certainly "wired" that I would DEMAND the theory FIRST - like: "What do the fucking symbols actually MEAN?" I mean, I can usually recognise the composer & sometimes the actual piece, from...

    David L @ 232 & SFR @ 239 Music And yet, there are huge numbers of “amateur” musicains, some of whom are extremely talented. Our Morris-side’s Squire is a really good Melodeon-player & we have now got both a bagpiper...

    Pigeon @ 226 I know - I looked - but I also looked about 18 months back & they weren't there then ... Well, several seedling trays leaned strongly towards said tube, so I have to rotate the trays ......

    SF Reader @ 156 Just dipped into that Shakespeare-review. Quite frightening: He has always had wealth; he was born into it and makes ample use of it. But though he enjoys having what money can get him, it is not...

    Ioan @ 142 My "meat" consumption is probably down by about 5% per year ... but I'm even more careful about what I eat than 50 years ago .... I wonder if people are eating smaller-quantites of better stuff? Though,...

    FL @ 114 EXCEPT that, "now" ( In the past 10 years approx ) something new really has appeared - dropping birthrates as indiividual survival rates increase. "All" it needs is for this demographic change to encompass the whole human...

    Robt Prior @ 76 AIUI, this problem does not occur in Germany or the Netherlands ... and their industrial economies are doing very well - I wonder why that might be? Troutwaxer @ 79 Oh dear, the big metal bit...

    Frank Landis Erm err ... The Darwin family & their work? ( Across many disciplines ) I know, only one counterexample, does not a statistically- significant marker make, but, um ..... Yes, I know, this is very dangerous territory, because...

    is as impossible for this society as for hunter-gatherer tribe to plant a garden. Oh, yeah ?? Try reading this, then Oops, as the saying goes. Actually, long before "proper" agriculture, many so-called "hunter-gatherer" groups prcitised semi-agriculture ... it was...

    The chritofascist links posted by O-Y are very informative & horribly worrying. It's obviously a race ... Can they get their stuff enacted before the 2020 election, or rig a state of emergency before that date (Gilead) ... otherwise they...

    Except that the 40% who aren't voting ... because a lot of them are being prevented from voting? All the rigging-up of fake prohibitions & "qualifications" for voting, very reminiscent of the way brown would-be -voter were treated, pre Civil...

    Actually the "wild" ancestors of several crops appear to have died out ... Garlic f'rinstance DOES NOT SET SEED - we are reliant on clones & very narrow genetic variation for this crop. At least one place ( The Garlic...

    @ 1392 Oh dear. I would recommend a book: "Vanished Kingdoms" by Norman Davies. You really don't seem to appreciate hw much & how frequently frontiers "moved", especially in central/E Europe over the past 1000 years. As you say, you...
