  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Now that the voting is over, the reasons to calm down the population are pretty much gone and everything can go as usual, I guess. We are getting ready to a "second wave" of crisis and pandemic, it is very...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    This is an "update" from my long hiatus due to being tied to bed and recovering, and also a rant, and of course I don't even expect anyone to challenge me with questions on this blog anymore. So there. I...

    I remembered, here's the case when the broken clock shows right time: π’€­π’‹Ύπ’Š©π’†³ @1155: These fucks are the same kind who pretend Communism and the CCCP still exist. Or that CN is "Communist".... Go look up the "Museum of Communist...

    Martin @1220: So... little change, then. The difference between 30% capacity and 0% is infinite still. AIUI (apocryphal tale.. Duly noted. And I assume all of that was picked up by his personal accounting from the back of the Embassy,...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Everybody ... are all about how For the sake of avoiding of misunderstanding, like it happened last time, I will have to elaborate once again. That means "everybody who is bearing responsibility" in US/NATO, or rather "who is in control...

    Charlie Stross @1205: That should keep things busy for at least six months, right? And it's a start. You know what, I would agree. This actually goes into the line with the same assumptions laid out by some other economists,...

    whitroth @1156: First, of course, it always bothered me, given that Russia got its name from the Rus in Kiev, for the Ukraine and Georgia to break away. I also not that the Baltics were part of Russia for almost...

    Martin @1125: These statements are untrue. These statements, at least, have traceable basis in reality. What advice would you give to the NATO members Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia? For starters, it would be useful to get rid of segregation, russophobic...

    sleepingroutine @289: | April 6, 2020 16:41 | If they're not, they probably very much wish they could be. Uh-oh, spoke too soon! https://www.scmp.com/news/china/military/article/3079303/us-military-researchers-call-use-privateers-against-china Martin @1039: You'll have to give some specific examples, because all of my experience points the...

    Charlie Stross @978: Now, note the spread of alt-right memes via in-game chat, especially highly militaristic kill-lotsa-terrorists-and-by-terrorists-I-mean-anti-American games like, er, "Rainbow Six". Oh, so this is what it means, all these intro movies for the first season of R6S, about...

    David L @951: Your use of "most" in the referenced sentence tells me the same is true of others watching us. I tend to notice a wide variety of US news sources and "most" is very much not true. Same...

    Charlie Stross @875: You've been reading bad Tom Clancy novels, haven't you? Probably not, because this is just a logical step from several alt-right sources I've stumble upon. What you're describing is more like the sort of eco-fascism espoused by...

    SFReader @828: No need to create a boogeyman when there's a real monster hiding under your bed. Uhh, there's no need to create boogieman when the purpose of the attack is to deal actual damage. Theoretically, there is a...

    Talking about VR: I have a headset for almost a year and I am pretty satisfied of it. It takes time to setup and adapt, and it is not for everybody, but it has special advantages and properties that will...

    whitroth @803: You think it was only the Soveits who'd weaponized stuff? They kinda did, that he mentioned too. blackanvil @800: Oh, and he also pointed out that both sides had, as the starting gun for their nuclear attack...

    Greg Tingey @675: Most of the paranoia &n the USSR, like Tsarist regime .... Was all internal, repressing its own people ... The external paranoia was no that much different from what all the other countries were & are...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Greg Tingey @618: The USSR collapsed under its own weight - the weight of carrying all the supervision, internal spying, paranoia, suspicion & the sheer amount of people's time ( & money ) that that took. I wouldn't argue...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    to Elderly Cynic @151: That doesn't correspond with any of the definitions of "working class" that I have seen in (at least partly academic) writings. Prosperous property-owning professionals (including yeoman farmers) were classified as "middle class". to Charlie Stross @158:...

    two more words to add to 587: as disastrous as this movie would seem to be, it is not the apocalyptic saga. This time, however, it may as well be. to Charlie Stross @513: Both capitalism and socialism are doctrines...

    Dan H. 275: The 2008 sub-prime mortgages can probably best be understood if you look at how drugs such as cocaine modify human behaviour. The biggest bit of "Let's all you idiots believe..." in the whole debacle was the way...

    to Robert Prior @263: So the US Coast Guard are pirates? If they're not, they probably very much wish they could be. to Graham @259: All this took place in international waters. I am not entirely sure about terminology, but...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    to David L #1141: The 1/2 Trillion $$$ is the big item. Everything else is noise. Well if "everything else" includes proposed (additional!) trillions of loans to business, this is not really a noise. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-fed-will-make-up-to-4-trillion-in-loans-to-businesses-to-rescue-economy-mnuchin-says-2020-03-22 Not the final number, though....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    lt;dr couldn't properly follow the events of this thread, but please observe this. https://www.esa.int/Applications/Observing_the_Earth/Copernicus/Sentinel-5P/COVID-19_nitrogen_dioxide_over_China https://www.esa.int/ESA_Multimedia/Videos/2020/03/Coronavirus_nitrogen_dioxide_emissions_drop_over_Italy It's not as gradual, but for some reason it just happens that Northern Italy has the highest concentration compared to other parts of Europe.

  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    to Charlie Stross @1254: Then when Lenin dies and the big T moves up (Stalin is purged) Hitler ends up in charge of the Red Army. Speaking about poor "buddy" Adik, this is very highly unlikely that he would go...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    to Lars @314: And a completely off-topic question for someone (Heteromeles I think?) about a comment that was posted a year ago or something like that, that I haven't gotten around to asking about until now: A claim was made...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    to _Moz_ @275: Per the discussion wrt to buchfires, the problem here is not "fake greenies" unless you're actually talking about people pretending to be greenies, and by that I mean the global financial cabal who occasionally try to look...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Who knew there was scandalous russian porn? No, I was figuratively speaking, nothing really related to porn, but actually some stupid joke that was the last straw. He wasn't even that important of famous to create large scandal - I...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    I kind of assume Putin has made them officially irrelevant or something so they've made the only statement they really can. I can stand by correction there - HE resigned THEM (formally through his PM, that is), "due to loss...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    My question is: how do we distinguish the two groups? They say the same things, the act the same way... I would randomly guess you do not, until the SHTF. But then again they would be divided into other entirely...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    to GT @1211 So, the N Viets at Hue were just like the NKVD at Katyn, huh? So was everybody else in this burning pile of post-colonial asset transfer better known as "decolonization". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_Vietnam From the point of an independant...
