  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    Tell it to Wikipedia. I thought it was a blimp, and there does look to be a gondola at the bottom right of it....
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    That's a classic film. I'll admit to a weakness for nuke test films. This is a favorite nuke picture. I like to imagine it's a zeppelin, rather than a barrage balloon....
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    Since most drones* are low altitude I really wouldn't want to be in the area with one of those going off. And how much of an EM pulse do low-yield nukes emit? *personally I object to calling quadcopters drones, but...
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    Doesn't make him any less of an evil bastard....
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    Thanks. Obviously I was not in a great mood earlier, sorry about that. Mini Cooper and deep snow don't mix. Also thinking of staying out of the political discussons. There not why I'm here anyway....
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    George W Bush went to Yale and then to Harvard Business School, not Princeton Okay, I should have looked it up. Was thinking that Skull and Bones was Princeton. Still, they both went to Ivy League schools, money well spent?...
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    ...Cruz is very smart. Look up his education. You, and another commenter on a previous thread, are making the mistake of equating higher education and high-ish IQs with actual Intelligence. Ever hear the phrase "Educated beyond their intelligence"? After all...
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    No. Hillary with Bernie for VP is just not going to happen. As long as they're close in the primaries/caucuses she'd be crazy not to offer it to him, and him not to accept. I suspect he'd be one of...
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    Scalzi's post was fun. I particularly like the Chauncey Gardiner reference, though perhaps gives Carson too much credit. And I think he's wrong about Graham, who has said some pretty bonkers stuff....
  • Commented on Maneuvers in the Dark
    My first thought when I saw about the anti-drone eagles, was Time to take up Falconry? Naw, they're too small. Then I was worried that they'd be injured by the props, but it looks like they can grab from the...
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    Sorry to bring this putz back up, but here's a look at How Trump Answers a Question. Don't have 6 minutes? He essentially speaks at a 4th grade level--lowest of the candidates. As for raccoons; there seems to be at...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    It's a bit of a cliché that doing business in New York involves dealing with the mob, whether Italian or Russian. It can be anything from building construction to having your garbage picked up. It's probably not like it was...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    I was simply leaving a link to an article showing that the Trump family has a long history of being shits. (Also spot the Laundry Files tie in.) As for Don T. Rump, he was raised by his father. Paris...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend but is still a useful guy to have on the team pissing on my enemy's shoes My version is The enemy of my enemy is a distraction to be exploited....
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    If your point is that Fred Trump was simply doing what a lot of other real estate developers were doing at the time. I'm sure that's true, but so what? How many of their sons are running for President right...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    Woody Guthrie, ‘Old Man Trump’ and a real estate empire’s racist foundations Donny's a chip off the block?...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    I forgot to mention Palin's "Squirmishes" in the Middle East. She a Lovecraft fan?...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    “How about the rest of us? Right-winging, bitter-clinging, proud clingers of our guns, our God, and our religion, and our Constitution.” One gem from Sarah Palin's endorsement of Don T. Rump. Full of what you'd expect from the WASP Princess....
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    Who is Trump's Cheney? Quick, not fully awake answer: Trump Himself? I can't see him letting himself being led by the nose by anyone, especially someone smarter than him. I was tempted to say Ann Coulter, but. I see her...
  • Commented on Excuses, excuses
    Of course if he did die he might end up as another V.C. Andrews, who "wrote" at least a dozen books after she died. His estate could easily assign one of the co-authors to take over and ghostwrite under his...
  • Commented on Excuses, excuses
    Speaking of Patterson, it's too bad he hasn't died yet, so that someone can spill the beans on the complicated commercial operation he's undertaken to corner his part of the bestseller market The New York Times had a profile of...
  • Commented on Excuses, excuses
    Yesterday I tried to work on proofing the 1st draft of the novel I finished a few months ago and found all my notes were gone. I had saved it as an epub to iBooks and was highlighting and making...
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    FUCK CANCER! David Bowie dies at 69; mesmerizing performer and restless innovator No way to start the day, never mind the year. Never been much for hero worship, but he'd be at the top of the list....
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    And then there's "muslim lolita"... Your fault, I had to look for it: Muslim Goth Lolitas So Kawaii....
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    See why you should follow the links? Sure, and I usually at least glance at them, but this time there seems to be more than usual. Just counted 34 links, would take me a while to get through....
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    No, it's entirely on topic (host's link to medieval women's head-wear). I forgot about that bit. And no I didn't follow all the links....
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    Do an image search for "gele" and then "ascot hats" I was about to say that was "Facinating", but saw that Ascot insists on actual hats now. But I'm reminded of African American women's Church Hats. Then there are the...
  • Commented on A world-building puzzler
    If knots in strings are allowed, why not something more intricate? Knitting and Crochet have a variety of knots that can be combined in many combinations to maybe encode information. Perhaps could be applied to the knotting of rugs, and...
  • Commented on A world-building puzzler
    other textiles are all over the place in almost every human society And another thought.. If knots in strings are allowed, why not something more intricate? Knitting and Crochet have a variety of knots that can be combined in many...

    Just caught up on comments, so never mind my second bit @268....
