  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    I would think that you'd want to start with Adam Tooze's book The Wages of Destruction, which I think does talk about this. I can't be sure (it's a while since I read it) but I believe his description aligns...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Well, you can sell all those shiny nukes. To the UN, hopefully....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Thanks. I did read that, many years ago, and remembered it after I'd posted. Looking back, I do suspect he wrote much of the novel around that concept. It doesn't seem impossible to me, but that's not well aligned with...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    One interesting thing here is that the Belarusians seem to have managed to stay out, apart from allowing passage to Russian forces (and some artillery basing, I think)....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    More like Nova Scotia or Newfoundland than Moscow, I think; subarctic rather than continental....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Thanks. I suspect this has answered the question: the hurricanes which currently run up the east coast of the USA will run out of steam earlier (if they stay near the coast) or possibly will follow the warm water on...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    As a matter of fairly idle curiosity, if/when the Gulf Stream redirects from its ~~current~~ present path, do we know (or can we guess) how that will affect American hurricane season?...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    I'm speculating, and entirely from publicly-available sources....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    I'm sure. But that doesn't address the geography; if these are all for the same purpose (which is not clear), then it would have to be something which appears all the way along Russia's western border. Which feels like a...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Maybe they are flying something out. I've been watching Guardrail flights in Lithuania; maybe it's data dumps on tape, something they don't want to clutter up wireless channels with?...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Strongly agree. I've moderated a birdwatchers' forum, and quit when the other mods chose to back a persistent offender with a great deal of knowledge and no capacity to do other than insult and threaten....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Churlish?...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    There was a comment being quoted on Twitter being (ironically) outraged that Charles was going to be a King and that this wokeness was going a bit far....
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    Thanks, I appreciate that....
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    I don't remember this being reported or discussed here. If it has, apologies. https://www.euronews.com/green/2022/08/29/battery-breakthrough-scientists-invent-cheap-aluminium-sulphur-alternative-to-lithium-ion-?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social&fbclid=IwAR2UwXdyRcFKxwWqCGcz5X1OhNF8GV_D-BABdfpWuAxktN4O3szDC2ZJigU...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    I thnk you might be surprised how many of the English would vote for it. They have, after all, been systematically fed the lie about Scotland being an economic drag on England....
  • Commented on The ends of education
    Agree. My little Skoda is quite adequate for two. And I usually take a bass guitar and a practice amp....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Presumably there will be no equivalent crime to dumping raw sewage into the ecosystem, since the only actual ecosystem in transhuman-land will be dedicated to maintaining the transhumans....
  • Commented on The ends of education
    Moz at 655: "Willing Recipient of Sexual Favours springs to mind as well but that acronym doesn't bear thinking about" Not too bad... worseoff Which is quite entertaining....
  • Commented on The ends of education
    If, as predicted in some quarters, there is a major sociopolitical crisis in Britain this winter, then the government will (probably need to) take emergency powers. They did make the plans during the early months of 2020, after all. I...
  • Commented on The ends of education
    Yes, except that there is no requirement for voters actually to be British, and the actual size of the electorate is probably 175K. Turnout is anyone's guess, IMO....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Returning to the original post, I couldn't think of any serious crimes which aren't obvious. I suppose that stealing processor time would become a much more serious matter than currently. It would become militarised and monetised, for sure. Parasitic infestations...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Oddly, I also have spam arriving at another email address, from an old PBEM GM who used Rex Rocket as an email handle. I assume that's not related....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Interesting. I have what appears to be hostile email claiming I've got two missed emails, purporting to be Google "automation service reporting", apparently from an Indian domain (99infotech.in). Does that make any sense to you?...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Thanks. Let me know if you need a test reply or similar....
  • Commented on The ends of education
    I've caught a few of them. I'm sure there were lots I missed. (Kim Newman is infamous for this, at least for me; there's a reference to someone - often to clasic film, which is really not my turf- on...
  • Commented on The ends of education
    I had to look it up. Pirates of Penzance was the reference I found....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    I always do. Not there; no sign of it. Thanks anyway :)...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Me too. Only been half an hour so far though....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    I would be very sorry to see this blog fold. I've learned a lot (though that may not always be obvious), and I'd never have found much of my recent reading without it. But it's not up to me, and...
