  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    I was out duck hunting one day (the only hunter on the pond and only 3 of us on ~400 hectares of rough land) I got careless when walking on some rough ground and fired the shotgun. And I'd been...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Surely the RAN can deal with merican English. Probably but did not Charlie recently say he had a 3 month course on how to write "murrican" when he started a new job? In Canada tabling a motion in Parliament has...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Not to mention that because they consistently vote in the exact same people, beholden to oil, they really aren't doing anything to prepare themselves for a day where oil is no longer boom/bust but simply bust. I had not realized...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    I have no idea but the Russian Federation seems to be maintaining the USSR's tradition of mothballing everything (at least in the military and ROSATOMFLOT looks semi-military). Last I looked, the Lenin, the first Soviet nuclear ice breaker, built in...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    My reading of this, and it is very superficial, is that we are getting something that is "ice capable" not even conventional ice breakers. Trans: We are not dropping in for tea at Alert in February. The Russians can. For...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Canadian Navy nuclear subs as well - given the growing strategic importance of the arctic having a submarine force that can reliably operate up there would seem to me to be a good idea. I'd settle for a couple of...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Totally the same situation. Phonetics? Never heard of them and I really doubt they exist in English. Russian, sure. An interesting idea https://cluborlov.blogspot.com/2014/11/is-unlearning-harder-than-unschooling.html I have played around with his ideas and I rather like them...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I ran into a book on Canadian--Jewish history in a university library a couple of years ago. One article was on the difficulty of appointing Jewish justices of the peace because of the oath. After its usual futzing around the...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Ridden on pavé in France but wet cobblestones sounds diabolical....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    I rode to work down Montreal Road one day with no problem. On my return that afternoon half the road had disappeared into a sinkhole. Cycling in Ottawa had its interesting moments....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    My uncle, reportedly, was riding a shaft/drive bicycle about 1912-1213 here in Canada. Since he was killed on the western Front in 1915, i have no report of the drive's efficiency....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    I agree with the weight. It can be done; I have often ridden home with a 10 kg bag of flour in one bag and nothing in the other but it is not a relaxing ride. Just mounting the bike...
