  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Just read this: The British are frantically Googling what the E.U. is, hours after voting to leave it Seriously?...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Petition is back up. It says: "EU Referendum Rules triggering a 2nd EU Referendum We the undersigned call upon HM Government to implement a rule that if the remain or leave vote is less than 60% based a turnout less...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Yes. An American example is the Republican primaries a few months ago. Out of a dozen candidates T. Rump gets something like 20% of votes and the media declare he has a majority, ignoring the 80% that didn't vote for...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    I saw that there's a petition calling for a revote with at least 75% percent to pass. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/131215circulating --down for maintenance, apparently was swamped and crashed. I gather it quickly reached 100,000 so has to be considered in Parliament. But...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    As someone on Twitter said: "so this is what history feels like. Not sure I like it." or as Iggy Pop once said: "fuckety, fuck, fuckin', fuck fuck!"...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Repeating myself from previous thread, since I hadn't seen this post. Famous British Novelist was interviewed again on NPR, this time amounting to "Hawhaw, I told you so, I was against it all along" and "Kids these days." Maybe expressed...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Famous British Novelist was interviewed again on NPR, this time amounting to "Hawhaw, I told you so, I was against it all along" and "Kids these days." Maybe expressed slightly more eloquently. It always bothers me that anything less than...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Shamelessly swiped from Twitter, via @GreatDismal as usual: ’Twas Brexit, and the slithy Goves Did lie and grumble in the Mail, All Menschy were the Boris droves, And Nigel Farage is a fascist https://mobile.twitter.com/NicholasPegg/status/746061996089577472...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    What I was referring to concerning clothes--from my memory as I have only read it once--was the part at the beginning where she is jealous of Ramona's clothes. I've also only read it once, nearly a year ago, so don't...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    Or when a woman in a meeting makes a suggestion which is ignored, and a little later one of the men makes the same suggestion (whether intentional or subconciously, idk) and gets approval. Particularly rankles if the man is lower...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    Okay, maybe "Das Kapital of the Vampyr", "The Origin of Lycanthropic Species" or "Guns, Germs and Steel Unicorns"?...

    ...and here's a reminder not to mess with Unicorns: Delicacy...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    Not sure if I am one of the early commenters you referred to, but, yes, I know and have worked for/with a number of women, including my wife who is a government civil servant of a type, since she is...

  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    One thing I wondered about in the book is the way it seemed to be almost no big deal to the public that there are suddenly real superheroes and villains flying around. I suppose a lot of that is because...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Heard on NPR this morning: 'Day Of The Jackal' Writer Will Vote For Britain To Leave The EU In which a famous British novelist Lincolnsplains to an American journalist, and at one point I can't help but think "What a...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    Mo herself doesn't have the same sense of humour as Bob (although over almost a decade together lots of Bob-isms have rubbed off on her) Yep, at the beginning of the book I thought it was a little odd that...

    Well, I was never an Evangelion fan anyway. Decoding an Anti-Semitic Meme Donald Trump Supporters Took From Anime...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    ...and there is toxic nationalism, where you believe that your country is inherently better. Add, when National Identity is bound up with Ethnic Identity things get really nasty toward Others....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Apologies if this is going too American, but can imagine it applying to BF/UKIP followers. For months I've been expecting T. Rump rallies to hand out brown shirts. Meet the shock troops of Trump’s America Almost makes you miss the...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    In the late 80s, when in college, my brother had a short stint as a bike messenger in Manhattan. Dealing with the traffic and pedestrians was a bit much for him. You'd have to be a ninja to not get...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    This does not (probably) count as assasination,as that usually has an ordered group behind it. I would disagree. Charles Guiteau, the assassin of President Garfield, was not associated with any group. In his mind he was slighted by not getting...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    --Combat vets suffering PTSD who can't stop driving as they did in Iraq and Afghanistan. They drive huge dark SUVs in a very dangerous manner, treating every small car as if it holds a terrorist or a suicide bomber. They...

  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Terrorist who murdered Jo Cox shouts: "Death to traitors" in court The more I hear about this guy, the more I'm reminded of Robert Dear, the murdered at our local Planned Parenthood clinic. Same sort of courtroom outbursts. The main...

    Apologies, but Oh My Gawd, What is this? I don't even.... "Japanese Trump Commercial" Link sent by my brother....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Thinking about it, I guess I'm glad that I don't have anything to say. If I did that might mean that this sort of thing has become too common. Also if I went on I'd likely exhaust my expletives, and...
  • Commented on Competition closing soon!
    I hope us ineligibles didn't swamp the entries too badly. Sorry, we couldn't help ourselves....
  • Commented on A taste of nightmares to come
    Come to read about unspeakable horror At least we aren't discussing the nightmare that is conservative politics, or other recent events. Way too scary....
  • Commented on A taste of nightmares to come
    I tend to think of Chabad as Jewish Hare Krishnas. To me they seem to tick off most of the cult boxes; funny outfits, devotion to messianic leader, missionaries, etc. But generally decent people, not too insistent on converting other...
