    in NZ for example you can vote Can I just emphasise that. In NZ you can vote. Permanent residents included. It's a remarkable extension of the franchise that AFAIK isn't done anywhere else in the world. I'm a big fan...

    By coincidence Tim Scott has just done another eVoting video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkH2r-sNjQs&t=1s And air quality in my bit of Sydney has just hit the fan: The BOM says of Penrith/Sydney Summary Max 42 Hot and smoky. Late change. Smoke haze. Slight...

    I have a T shirt that looks like a Labour one and has ALP in big letters. The smaller letters say "Another Liberal Party". A former friend was not at all amused when I wore it to have lunch with...

    gave the order to arrest the guy leading the Samoan part of the anti-vax campaign Ordering his execution would have been over the top, and I would object to indefinite detention without trial. But not to putting him on trial...

    I’m again thinking through how the ground-coupled, high-thermal-mass arrangement works, where driving cyclonic dust extraction could work from roof cavity heat differential suction alone. I've used a commercial-scale heat-driven heat pump but that was not even slightly accessible to DIY...

    Kuenssberg is probably the most balanced ... Peston is also very reliable Which means the overton window sharply limits what they can say, and how they can say it. Possibly more obvious in Australia right now where the political consensus...

    Yes. I have three measuring tools and while they don't agree, they don't disagree to the point where I think "oh, that's fine". It's more like I get 250,280,300 ug/m3 and wear a respirator. But this morning it's back below...

    Americans like to fantasize that we are fascinating to the rest the world Oh, we are. Same way we're fascinated by red belly snakes crawling across our lawns, or a bushfire raging up the next valley over. Sure, there's a...

    Just as the Germans have 200 words for "government department". Was going to make a list but then I discovered the Bundesministerium für Gesundheit and now I can't stop sneezinglaughing....

    I like the Pastor{sic} with "who would Jesus damn" as an animated signature....

    Oh, and Hells Gate in Aotearoa have a sign "Persons who throw litter or stones into the thermal pools may be asked to retrieve them". I prefer the older/other "don't wade into boiling mud" sign more direct, but whatever works....

    Yeah, it stunned me that it was so cheap. I'm used to "fines start at $10,000 and have no upper limit. Oh, and neither do the prison terms". A friend was arrested for flying a kite outside a concentration camp...

    Haven't there been prosecutions based on published footage? Viz, people put footage that can't be obtained legally on youtube and the cops come round asking questions? Like this twit :)...

    Yes, but passengers don't interact directly with ATC and have no influence over the decision whether or not to obey it. Their benefit derives indirectly from other people, not directly from ATC. People on the ground under the aircraft benefit...

    It occurs to me that gasdive also very carefully left out drones Sorry, that was too harsh. I didn't think of drones until today, likely gasdive didn't think of them until reading the above. They are, however, a big problem...

    big warnings printed on the German menu I bought some frozen samosas yesterday that are made in India and clearly labelled "Indian Style" with a 3/3 chilli warning. I was half expecting to have to give them to my ex...

    what about the ordinary folks riding as passengers in those aeroplanes? Can you explain how they interact with air traffic control? Or more accurately, how they get to *choose* whether to obey or disobey ATC? In any other context, then...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    I was meaning specifically police, who are concerned with everyone rather than just rich fucks with aeroplanes. While I'm aware that anyone with a spare $5000 *can* buy a microlight/ paraglider/ hanglider there's two problems: first, an awful lot of...

    Yeah, I will go to the local one on the way home. The ride to work without a mask was no fun{tm}....

    This morning I went to ride to work and discovered that the filters on my pollution mask have solidified overnight. They're not just dirty any more, they're actual blocks of concrete. Sadly the local supplier has a next-week shipping policy...

    Police should be the grease that keeps society running smoothly for the benefit of all, not head crackers and bully boys. That's two sides of the same coin. If you're in the protected class police will facilitate whatever you...

    Amusing and possibly informative parallel between the various right wingnuts and weeds: Vavilovian mimicry. Philosophically/politically, the ones that stray too far from "modern liberal society" get eliminated so what we have left is the ones who sound kinda like liberals/libertarians...

    Ah, but poms who are ethnically Chinese or actual from-China Chinese? You might find that they're indeed immigrants... from Wales :)...

    FWIW in Aotearoa corned beef is just as per wikipedia, with the caveat that it is sometimes made with nice cuts of meat so you get really quite edible corned beef, rather than the jellied salt leather than comes in...

    I'm not sure this band is familiar with the common english usage of their name: https://vagitarians.bandcamp.com/ In related news, I have coined macropodarian to describe "vegetarian who eats kangaroo" because if the pescitarians can do it so can I. The...

    It also has a meter... there's a big gap between it being safe and it being smoky enough that you can see the smoke in the room Mine had a little blip to 20-40µg/m³ this afternoon but it's all...

    Hmm, a quick cardboard mock-up later it turns out that 10 litres/minute or so is not enough to make a detectable difference inside this stupid house. I either need more, louder fans or a completely different setup. I think I...

    I am put off by the cost of the filters. I have a large washable HEPA filter in the garage, but the box for it was coreflute and did not survive the move. I think I will build a new...
