    Robert Prior @ 1074: My own personal answer is that we need to use each of the holes these billionaires are digging for themselves as toxic waste dumps Before or after they try to use them? WHILE!...

    Troutwaxer @ 995: Nice, but I think you meant "it played one." If you start with "one", you have to come up with verses for "two" through "seven". It played "on" allows you to finesse six verses....

    Heteromeles @ 231: The real security the Mandate has from Mahogany Row is the presumption that there are Bigger Things Manifested Elsewhere, and that he (it) is the lesser of two evils. He (it) is the lesser of many evils....

    Myself @ 214: That was Brains & Vicar Pete. The Alfär had no experience with firearms Correction: That was Pinky & Vicar Pete, and I'd forgotten that Pinky brought along a Hand of Glory (I've actually been rereading The Nightmare...

    whitroth @ 908: May I suggest a hell of a lot more reasonable explanation of Bond? Sure, knock yourself out. But the comment I was replying to was about the villain, Scaramanga....

    sleepingroutine @ 896: Do I have to take my time to explain what I just said in plain words, every time I come to this site? Why not just say it in plain words the first time around and skip...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    whitroth @ 200: Speaking of the Mandate... I may have missed a recent book, since I see people here mentioning him making rambling, semi-incoherent statements. That leads to my question #1; the more powerful the paranormal... don't I rememeber the...

    The real problem with "IQ" is how long it takes some people to understand they're not as smart as they think they are....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Charlie @ 190: As in Harry the Horse, the armourer? Nope. Someting else. Something worse than Daleks: possibly on the order of Cybermen. Both Daleks and Cybermen still have organic brains, so I'm betting The Eater of Soles Souls can...

    Robert van der Heide @ 178: “DEEP 7 doesn't care what's happening on the surface“ If so that’s unwise of them. As we have seen elsewhere, swarming monkeys having a CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN” can result in anything from the destruction...

    Greg Tingey @ 776: "Amerika loves its Guns more than it does its Children" More realistically, "The gun manufacturers lobbying organization, the NRA, loves the gun manufacturers profits more than it does America's children." The rank & file membership are...

    Charlie Stross @ 170: She's feeding 7 official PHANGs ... but don't forget the Alfär Magi, one of whom is a significant character who appears later in the novel. Ok, I got that she drew one, then drew another, then...

    Ryan @ 7: So the Mandate is Trump now (in terms of rambling, incoherent orders). Not sure if that's better or worse than the original impression of a dark and sinister Outer God! :P I didn't see "Trump" in the...

    Questions: Mhari drew 18 vials of blood during the execution. Later it says she's responsible for providing blood-meals to 7 PHANGS. There's Mhari, Janice, Alex, John and Dick* ... who are the other two? Eighteen is not a whole number...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Just checked. My local public library has 19 copies on order. I'm number 17 on the "hold" list. So I should get to read it fairly early in November. I'll wait to buy it until it comes out in paperback...

    Neil W @ 703: Pretty sure the psychologist's report on Scaramanga in The Man With The Golden Gun suggests that he's a latent homosexual due to the number (and variety) of women he sleeps with. In the film this is...

    Greg Tingey @ 139: How would that work in a case of political appointees involved in simple criminal misconduct prior to entering office, possibly continuing after they'd taken office. Well, this is a USA reference .... is it possible to...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Charlie Stross @ 135: What are these political appointees you speak of? In the British system they aren't supposed to exist. "Appointee" was not the right word then. My understanding of the British system is the Prime Minister, Home Secretary,...

    Martin @ 131: Regardless, it means that we just don't operate in the same way as the US; you could call it another example of an institutional blind spot. After all, GCHQ / the Intelligence Service fall under the Foreign...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Finally thought of something that might qualify as a "blind spot", or at least comes close. What do y'all think of the new Doctor on Doctor Who? I think it's great & I'm looking forward to it, but I know...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    allynh @ 675: Will climate change turn Miami into a ‘future Atlantis’?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clEUNfePzrs That's not a problem here in North Carolina. The Legislature passed a law several years ago forbidding local governments along the Outer Banks from using projected sea level...

    Scott Sanford @ 124: Again, I got a slightly different read on that, at least where Alex is concerned. It was not so much fear as he's got a bit of a chip on his shoulder from when they first...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Graham @ 118: Very much fear. Alex and Mo are both similarly afraid of Bob, and they're no pushovers. Again, I got a slightly different read on that, at least where Alex is concerned. It was not so much fear...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    SFreader @ 635: Privacy is a recurring topic here so folks might be interested in an increasingly popular new tech called 'snapshot DNA phenotyping that can determine a person's eye, skin and hair color, facial features and ancestry to create...

    Elderly Cynic @ 610: "** "Canadian, eh? That's pretty damned suspicious. Let's have yer fingers, mate." The U.S. border Nazis have been nearly that nasty on occasion. Don't know if the kiwi equivalent is equally nasty." Buy a prepaid burner...

    Martin @ 607: I'm only a couple of years ahead of you. Just so long as it's not a mid-life-crisis-mobile, ... Screw that. If I'd played it safe I'd have never bought an MGB, which come to think about it...

    _Moz_ @ 597: This was "Department head keeps a spare pair of trousers in his office just in case" situation. At the risk of incriminating myself... doesn't everyone doe that? I keep a coverall in my car that I could...

    Max Samuel @ 88: What bothered me in that book was not that the Laundry got defeated (disbanded). It was that it felt like they weren't even fighting back. I read it they were fighting back with everything they had;...

    Kamamuri @ 79: On that note, Mhari compares at one point the mandate's ability to stay three steps ahead of everyone to an ex-boyfriend of hers. Is she referring to Bob? It didn't sound like Bob to me... I thought...

    _Moz_ @ 588: I did have one professor in college who was so head in the clouds that he couldn't dress himself in the morning I just worked a public holiday by accident. And I can dress myself but choose...
