    RP @ 459 France takes this attitude ONLY a Civil marriage is legal inside France - if you want a chuch / synagogue / mosque / whatever wedding, fine, get on with it, but the French state only reocgnises their...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    Accusing, correctly or not "Western" countries of Human Rights violations is all very well & is quite possibly true. But IRRELEVANT - you are distracting/diverting/whatabouting the argument away to another subject & still not answering the question. Very clever, almost...

    grs 1961 "Calibre" - OK, got that - thanks...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    H @ 453 Will you notify Charlie, or shall I? We have already been round the sexual consent angle, it's his attitude to Universal Human Rights that's bothering me now, because that is a very slippery slope that, say, John...

    moz @ 297 No I've already got them on kindle, inside "this" computer. Now - how do I make a copy of each of those, that I can store separately ( Disc / CD / slug etc ) ???...
  • Commented on Media Piracy and Unpronounceable Names
    Martin @ 80 Which is why the DDR was so ready to give in. The state was collapsing under the weight of its own (STASI) intel system & maintaining it ... There were other reasons of course, but it was...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    s-r @ 446 The eevnts I were referring to was the vile & fascist XXXth Olympiad, held in London in 2012. The Media blanket censorship was truly scary. BUGGER both Orwell & Huxley, though, at presnt Orwell is nearer to...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    @295 And how does one go about that, I ask? { I have sveral books - mostly LMcM Bujold admittedly - on Kindle ) And would like to worj out how to make "permanent" internal copies....
  • Commented on Media Piracy and Unpronounceable Names
    Charlie @ 62 I THINK the noe-Nazis are going to be very unhappy bunnies, poor little sweet things ... But, very big but, the utterly technologically-illiterate HoC ( As opposed to the Lords, some of whom do know which way...

    moz @ 43 To which one MUST add ... buyer / seller / controller must be able to authenticate that all relevant sales/transaction/customs taxes & duties have been paid or reclaimed Um, err .... GregvP "Case Law" - which mostly...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    S=r @ 442 No, you appear not to have picked up the reference to the events in this country in 2012 that I was referring to. The build-up actually started on 6/7/2005, when an announcement was made to the world,...

    Oh the joys of misreading .... ".... but found myself wearing fantasy shorts." Presumably ready to be ripped-off?...

    Charlie @ 17 Oh dear ... For more on "Jaffa Cakes" .... Are they Cakes or Biscuits? An absolute classic of the genre.......
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    sleepingroutine It most emphatically is NOT "wartime propaganda" - if only because there are actors & news orgs who are significantly more pro-Ru than others & we can still watch "Russia Today" (etc) IF it were as you describe, the...
  • Commented on Media Piracy and Unpronounceable Names
    My brain now hurts from reading all that ..... "push transaction" - meaning that You or I ( or any participant in these actions? ) only sends data/information in single bursts & then waits for response(s) from other interested parties,...
  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism
    Nojay @ 655 Somewhere, I still have two sets of 5-figure log tables. Even more valuable for a post-apocalypitc word ... A copy of the "Rubber Bible" ... Oh shit, I might have to buy next year's copy - the...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    Actually, it's deeper than something as simple as what you suggest. I had an, erm, "very unpleasant" personal experience, many years ago because certain moronic thugs "thought" I was "gay". Since then I have been more than somewhat symapathetic, shall...

    allynh Ye gods, that thing is massive - & the main Hg-mirror is "up in the air" with "sealed" mercury bearing elsewhere - keeping the bottom one from leaking under the load/pressure exerted must have been an .. interesting" engineering...

  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    JBS @ 229 I think that we can rule this one out: 3. Their funding was taken away (shifted to ICE & Border Patrol) and the facility was shut down to prevent damage that might result from not having the...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    Or, possibly even more to the point ... "Classical" Greece ... in one of the Dialogues, IIRC Alcibiades (?) makes pass at Socrates, to be very politely turned down & no-one thinks anything of it ........
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    Classic example the other way. Anyone else here old enough to remember the war hero, travel writer, naturalist extrodinaire ( Oh & damned -good oil-painter too ) Sir Peter Scott? He wrote a mongraph on Bewick's Swans ... which described...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    THANK YOU Charlie. When someone like me, about 95% heetro, but with great sympathy for others not of the same persuasion, for very personal historic reasons, feels distinctly uneasy about posts, as discussed, it's a relief to see your comments....

    EC @ 207 Given that the USA is not obsessively secretiv This is IRONY, right? That implies a high level of cock-up and cover-up Now THAT I would agree with .......

    sleepingroutine @ 625 I believe that you have a deadly enemy within your government and social structure. Yes, I agree - that AS WELL AS what I previously said. Oh dear, not good. Frank Landis I have posted to Charlie...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    Charlie, sorry to be a pain, but could you take the time to read sleepingroutine's comments in mostly the Heinlein thread? His social comments on homosexuality may be contra the Mod-policy (?) And, less worryingly, but still of concern is...
  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism
    THE WHOLE POINT about our social structures is that they are "clueless" - they are ORGANIC - we have grown into them & they are not imposed from an external dixcattorial authority, be it the Cathjolic Church or the Communist...
  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism
    EC @ 610 & 611 Please grow up - you are now believeing your own propaganda. One can debate whether the USA and UK are more democratic than Russia, but it's definitely marginal. Like that f'rinstance - though with the...
