  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    It's good that you know you think differently from other people, and if only more people knew that about themselves. I know I think a bit differently from 'average' or 'normal', but forget often, and it's not something that is...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Unfortunately i likely won't make it on Tuesday, but something else has occurred to me. Given the size of the universe, you can turn it into a franchise and get different authors to write from different cultures and.make it more...

    There might be a good statistical analysis somewhere, but the difficulty would be getting it known. I've seen a few amateur/ outsider take downs of published stuff but the most famous that might have an effect was that psychology paper...

    The ship names thing can be tricky if you are planning a multicultural future, not just one where the in jokes of white male geeks aged 18 to 50 are the main source of comedy and everyone happens to understand...

    How can we stop you overloading yourself with work?...

    On bicycle helmets, we have Ben Goldacre, basically saying it's complicated: http://www.badscience.net/2013/12/bicycle-helmets-and-the-law-a-perfect-teaching-case-for-epidemiology/ One of the forum discussions, which of course has links to studies etc: http://www.badscience.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=22559&hilit=cycle+helmets or another: http://www.badscience.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13767&hilit=cycle+helmets...

    Well no, it's more that there are different arguments and facts involved. Your lack of honest debating is a shame, but an interesting discussion can be had around the factors relating to nationalism and what makes a nation a nation,...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    So you've got no reply to your hyperbolic comment being rubbished by us? That's fine with me. Also you aren't a very good scots nationalist if you can't point to the Scottish legal definitions. Prompted by your link i have...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    No they weren't. Plus the CPS making national equals race is pure mince. Finally, the popular definitions are nothing like it. Basically you are wrong, as is the CPS. Hang on a second, the CPS is an English and Welsh...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Right, now for cycle helmets. A few years ago now i was witness on the bad science forums to a very long argument about cycle helmets. The impression i came away with was that: 1) the available evidence for studies...

    It is of course important to note that providing a link to a legal definition of racism in no way proves that the writing described as racist actually is so....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    No no, you don't understand, words mean whatever Goodall wants them to mean! Paws, yes you seem to be getting the point....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    The Scots aren't a race anyway....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Clearly you are reading a different blog from the rest of us....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Also, there should be a law saying when people deploy the word 'racism' they need to define precisely which definition they are using and how it applies in this situation....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    I note you haven't actually made an argument in defence of your original hyperbolic statement....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    So if labour was being nasty to the very poorest, does that mean the people happy with them being so we're their voters such as the ones with good unionised jobs and suchlike, the people that to modern eyes were...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Actually the Tweed basin is evidence against it. If you are using the southern uplands to say geographically separate, then the Tweed basin should not be in Scotland, or if it is, then the border should run east and west...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    To add to what Martin said, Scotland is only geographically separate if you measure all of England from London, and ignore the movement of the border in the 11th to 15th centuries. It was a historically separate nation for over...

    This whole "Economics is rubbish" thing would go away if people added appropriate words, extra descriptors. Whether Econonmics (1900), or Economics (Keynesian) or "Economics as used and abused by politicians", which is clearly different from academic economics of the sort...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    I know one guy who says he left the civil service because it was getting too political. Back in the late 1960's/ early 1970's. There is expectation, then there is reality....

    Also here's a blog post by an economist type person suggesting how the negotiations are going and will go: http://www.coppolacomment.com/2017/03/game-theory-in-brexitland.html...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    On brexiteers telling people to shut up, there is a lot of noise like that coming from people on twitter and blog comments. I don't know how much they represent your average brxit voter though. Unfortunately many of the commenters...

    But they were all mixed up in the group think and neoliberal ideology, of course they'd fail too. It was dissapointing to see how Brown, who used to be much more left wing, fell for it too. Even I, a...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    I read Brown's post-crash account of it, and was unsurprised to find how it spent almost no time at all on what actually led up and caused the crash. Whilst he did the correct thing to avoid a meltdown, the...

    Re. the rock, that's not actually the whole story. The basalt plug is the castle rock, and Calton hill is another. The old town is built on softer rocks that weren't eroded away by the glaciers. There were other long...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    The vast majority are vertical, and lead down into water since the mines flooded due to adverse geology. Or, you are just trying to make a joke....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    Nuh uh, as they say. Our hillsides are rock. Building into rock is expensive and time consuming. Also hillsides steep enough to be built into aren't so near places people want to say. Try going to Sheffield instead. Also someone...

    The thing is, the A19 is in England, albeit part that might be better off joining Scotland. So, back to the main topic, would joining the EU give Scotland some money to help with infrastructure etc, given the high costs...
