  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    You've seen Sinn Féin's Carson-quoting response, I presume? They at least are sure this whole exercise is the DUP carefully aiming a howitzer at their own big toe, from the level of barely-contained glee in their statements....
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    There were several "Conservative and Unionist Negotiating Team" jokes circulating post-election....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    We're talking about building power plants to generate electricity for export: if China has suggested building PV in the Sahara and exporting the power to Beijing, they've gotten pretty ambitious....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    1. What the hell has China got to do with this? 2. I didn't say that. 3. Equivalent Chinese projects have had their own problems....

    Reprocess it. And they're digging a long-term depository, I think?...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    So, why not just install all those oversized and ugly solar arrays in the Sahara or any other desert? A play for two actors: Us: "Hi! We're the EU. You might remember us as the people who brutally conquered and...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    IIRC there was migration, but disentangling sectarian migration from loyalist migration (the Americans who migrated to Canada post-Treaty of Paris? That) would be... difficult. And fearing Those Raving Nationalists wouldn't be entirely irrational; Scullabogue did happen....

    Argh, image scaling fail. Apologies....

  • Commented on Catching Up
    What trouble could Sinn Fein cause that Theresa May would listen to? They won't take their Westminster seats, she doesn't listen to outside voices, and any violence would only trigger her "I must oppress harder" instincts. Am I missing something?...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    "Yugoslavia" seems to me a half-reasonable match for Ireland - different factions in comparable numbers, who hate each other, but who have never been able to do anything much about really dealing with the differences because of several centuries of...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    You have one. It's the SNP....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Yes, marching for the release of the terrorist Nelson Mandela was a sticky point in his history. (The problem with meaningless guff like "publicly sympathising with known terrorists" meant to be read into so that you don't have to say...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Plus I think they proposed reducing the NI presence, and the DUP won't be keen on that. I suspect more to the forefront of the DUP mind is that if this election had run under the proposed changes Sinn Féin...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Which would be the point I made in the comment you first disagreed with, yes. Side note: theliberal.ie may be an Irish source, but more importantly it's a bad one. When they can't steal a story, they make one up....

    Try reading the words I typed....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Add in the fact that the new Irish Teashop is gay and of Asian descent there some hope for Ireland. The DUP is probably frothing at their mouths foul old dinosaurs. The DUP couldn't give a toss; to them we...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    I'm guessing the same is true of online users. Learn how much so here. Side note: CSI-type shows almost universally royally fuck up on tech and should be totally ignored as sources....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    The Alfar: convergent evolution to Blindsight vampires? I suppose they're both in the hominin-predating hominin niche, so it's not surprising....
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    Yeah, I should have expanded. The DSM lumps diagnosably manifesting sociopathy and psychopathy together as "antisocial personality disorder"; the usual usage to the separate terms seems to say sociopathy is 'there but for the grace of God go I' -...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    IMHO the real messiah will be the person who invents a completely accurate blood test to figure out who's a sociopath. I would tentatively suggest the person who figures out how to encourage antisocial personality disorder tendencies to manifest pro-socially...

    I suspect Pigeon was referring to CIÉ using peat as one of its coal replacements during World War 2, as referenced in the start of your Wikipedia link....
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    That's "not even wrong" levels. I don't know where that Wired article got its info, but the damn Wiki pages are more informative. (Incredibly TL;DR: fascism not merely accepts violence as necessity but celebrates it. Non-violent opposition to people who...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    The entire gun-making discussion is pointless. The world is littered with rifles and ammo, and both have no meaningful expiration date if stored correctly All of which makes the "3D-printed guns!" wibbling we're all grumpy about even more silly. Zip...

    I'll take almost any excuse to link to someone building an AK-47 from a kit, a barrel blank and a shovel....
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    Internet fracturing is IMHO something that unfree countries will hit their heads against and get a headache for their troubles. For one, even the Great Firewall of China leaks like a sieve. Second, the more you suppress the Internet, the...

    the only industrial nation with relatively high birth rates 2015 birth rate, per country: USA, 1.8; UK, 1.8; Sweden, 1.9; France, 2.0; Israel, 3.1 Who's been selling you organic fertilizer? :-)...

    This is a long way back at this point, but: your DLC-AI will not be subject to any historical or cultural biases is arrant nonsense. Where will programmers and training data without cultural biases be found to produce these AIs?...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    In anything like a democracy this would result in rather rapid changes to the laws. Most of us are constant criminals, entirely dependent on the limited amount of enforcement possible. We rely on the privilege of prosecutorial discretion every day,...
