  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    We know what is required to store energy, the issue is getting on with building them, and different methods will work in different geographical areas, depending on whether they have mountains, salt caverns, etc. There have been numerous studies done...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Well okay, you say the next election will be fought mostly to all on brexit. Some of us disagree, or see that as only part of the issue; the question is how much can parties and individuals swing the outcome,...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    That's an interesting question itself, and not my area of expertise, but the money people I know of are all internationally mobile and have properties in Scotland and England, and often elsewhere in Europe, and their money is salted away...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    They did institute new and better systems for dealing with accusations etc a year or more ago, it's just the media doesn't cover them, preferring to go for the silly personal stuff which is also tangled up with the anti-semitism....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I agree the brexiters have been all take, but there have been quite a few remainers, of lower status, fame, voice, etc, who have spent the last 2 or 3 years telling labour to become a fully remain party or...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    OKay, so, you've got nothing, no plan for Corybn, but want him to magically do exactly as you tell him. He knows a no deal brexit is bad, which is why he's against it, as is the labour party. He...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I can assure you that as a democractic socialist party, labour has been very busy discussing brexit and it's various issues. But the party also exists to get into power to do good things, certainly better nicer things than the...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    If you want to do some light reading, Dominic cummings, infamous law breaker, has a blog full of his crazed ideas: https://dominiccummings.com/ Charlie pointed out I think on twitter that he's a singularitarian. On his blog you can see how...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    It was pointed out elseweb that you don't have to start impeachment with trump, you can start with his fellow swamp monsters, working your way up. The negative publicity and information coming out of such hearings would be too juicy...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    But if enough people agree that you aren't trying hard enough to stop trump now, by e.g. impeaching him, they won't vote for you in 2020. Allowing him to commit an impeachable offence every day, which he seems to be...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    From what I've read, Rwanda was carefully planned and propagandised. When the Mail and Sun start telling their readers to act violently against their neighbours and various state arms start stockpiling machetes and stuff, then you should get worried. But...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I'm getting a vague memory that Dan H is our resident hit and run neoliberal/ libertarian; reality is not his strong point. Heteromeles #60 - good pointer, I'll look them up. The issue with our own prepping for brexit is...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Thanks, that's a good point about fat. I was going to keep some butter and margarine in the fridge to use for baking anyway, the question is what other sorts of fat can I store....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I can arrange to have both; I already have litres of meths for my camping stove, rechargeable batteries galore etc, paraffin lamp, etc. I should be fine, it's the poor people and elderly who will die en masse. So helping...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    I'm not totally up to speed on the topic, but wouldn't rice, lentils, various beans, vitamin pills and dried and canned fruit enable you to survive fairly well for quite a while?...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Ah well, the issue with charcoal is that it has to be strong enough to support the mass of burning charcoal and ore when in the furnace, rather than collapse into dust and prevent the passage of air. So hemp...
  • Commented on Story time!
    The Mark may have been a unit of accountancy to begin with; I know I have a book with information on the topic but I can't find it just now. It was however minted in Scotland in 1580 under James...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Greg, I don't mean this in a nasty way, but you have to consider it possible that someone who was born in a now demolished hospital building in Edinburgh, and who has a major interest in history, is capable of...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Cricket bats depends on where you are and what social level you are at. Hardly anybody here plays baseball and rounders is for children, but cricket is popular especially with middle class people or in the Shires. There was a...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Surely what makes them supervillains is that they have one massive defining accident, whether being dropped in chemicals or whatever. Again, Edinburgh would be quite good what with Roslin etc for all your genetically modified animal options. Glasgow and environs...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Yes, Edinburgh would be an interesting variation on Gotham. You can also throw in several other real things: - the famous mock gothic and baronial etc architecture is also in a parlous state, needing lots of repairs. Batman would either...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Of course having said that, you might like to enquire as to why King Arthur is such a legend and it was necessary to portray the anglo saxons as invading hordes......
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Uh huh, lets generalise one small area to the entirety of the UK. The stuff about thofsands of bodies only 2% having damage from weapons is more persuasive, except of course that the key point about archaeology is that you...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    You've personally magically searched the entirety of south England in order to prove such graves don't exist? I mean come on man, given how limited archaeological coverage is it's nust to expect to be able to find them. not to...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    Ah well you see the issue there is in tying the various gnostic forms of alchemy together with the different forms, ideas and practises throughout the next 2k years. Suffice to say, it varied, and there's no evidence that most...
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    You'll need to bring up the real goal of alchemy, if Charlie doesn't mind the diversion....
  • Commented on Upcoming appearances
    At the time, Science was theology and some other subjects. Not what we think of as science. Magic was not science. As for sailors and priests, one is dealing with a natural personification or supernatural manifestation, the other isn't, generally,...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Now you're falling for the conspiracy nonsense. Obviously we don't know how many brexiters and nutters are just foreigners pretending to be nutters in order to stir up trouble.... Several people I know went on the march, most of them...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    And yet the angry people who are scared the government will ignore the referendum seem to consist mostly of xenophobic racists who have meetings outside parliament and chant nasty things and threaten MP's and get arrested. Compared to maybe a...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    You do understand that I have two categories there? Maybe they even overlap? Quite a few people who have regretted voting leave have been on various forms of media saying how they misunderstood the EU, or merely protest voted and...
