  • Commented on Wag that puppy
    The Israeli response is apparently intended to give a young soldier the confidence to try to defend themselves... From what (admittedly little) I've seen of IDF Krav Maga training the focus is on situations where a soldier is rushed by...
  • Commented on Going to the source
    Yes, thank you. Fighting/Martial Arts may not be my thing, but your posts have been interesting. Definitely some things to think about. And I'm always interested in getting a look into writers' work and thought processes....
  • Commented on Who let the dogs out
    For when you don't have a silencer. Besides, would you want to be looking him in the face? Apparently it actually works: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=cnMeTlXsXC8 Had thought Mythbusters had covered it, but they don't seem to have covered pillows. Have I mentioned...
  • Commented on Wag that puppy
    Steven Seagal, Where's he now? Oh yeah: there. unfortunately doesn't include him saying "Oookkhraine"....
  • Commented on Who let the dogs out
    Barton Fink? Struggling writer ends up in Hollywood writing Wrestling movies....
  • Commented on Wag that puppy
    Quick note on further thought; my first two lines weren't meant to be offensive to anyone, just what popped into my head since the Holmes movie was mentioned. Apologies if any was taken....
  • Commented on Wag that puppy
    What!?! Movie fights aren't real? Noooooo.....shit Sherlock. Sorry. But obviously most movie fighting is about MachoBS™ and making the star look good. Seriously though, There's a reason I avoid getting in a fight, I'd probably get hurt and I don't...
  • Commented on Drink Me: The Horror Hotel Story, and Where Ideas Come From
    Or Whiskey Tequila Frangelico? (only F liqueur I could think of)...
  • Commented on Drink Me: The Horror Hotel Story, and Where Ideas Come From
    glassed-in courtyard of a Ducal place That reminds me of one of the neatest places I've stayed in. In the late 80s the Art Club of my high school went on a couple trips to Taos, New Mexico where we...
  • Commented on Drink Me: The Horror Hotel Story, and Where Ideas Come From
    Just looked at the pics on twitter. WRT the bad art, perhaps someone there has a thing for the opening credits of Bond films? Doesn't explain the random fake industrial objects though. And did you ever find out what the...
  • Commented on Drink Me: The Horror Hotel Story, and Where Ideas Come From
    I kept expecting Gordon Ramsay to jump out of a closet going "Boo!" Yep, I watch too much TV. Ramsay has a current show called "Hotel Hell" (imagine that), where he fixes these sort of places, most fit Charlie's description,...
  • Commented on New guest bloggers: Tricia Sullivan and Kameron Hurley
    ...and shall pelt... That should've been....
  • Commented on New guest bloggers: Tricia Sullivan and Kameron Hurley
    I am laying in wait for the physicists. ...and pelt them with unpopped kernels? I think I'm expecting the Martial Arts otaku to show up rather than physicists....
  • Commented on The referendum question
    especially as more American readers hit the end of their workday and have time to chip in. Umm, the workday is (mostly) just starting over here. Maybe they're using work machines? And Paw4thot @45; that's "Anchorage", like the town where...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    Just what flavor is mathematical fudge? I had to see if "Negative Mass" is anything other than theoretical. Anyway, there's this from the wikipedia article on Negative Mass: Gravitational interaction of antimatter[edit] Main article: Gravitational interaction of antimatter The overwhelming...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    Wow, could they make that site harder to read? But interesting. Obviously I wasn't thinking of that....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    I thought of using gravitational lensing to keep your beam focussed, but I think were mostly talking about communicating between systems with no other stars between. I don't know if Brown Dwarfs have enough mass to cause any lensing effect....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    Divide your data into sufficiently small packets, use checksums to verify proper transmission, and then send the packets with sufficient redundancy.... And it's not as if you would be sending a single data stream at a time (that would be...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    It seems to me that debt was disconnected from slavery, in the United States at least, by the passage of bankruptcy laws True now, but keep in mind that when the American colonies were being established it wasn't that unusual...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    It's also kind of unfortunate that you used the word "bitcoin" before "Bitcoin™" exploded all over the place, and too many people assuming you were talking about the latter....
  • Commented on Apology
    Another thought/question: What are you calling the subtitle? Are going Book Title: Series Title or the other way 'round? Which is what I was thinking....
  • Commented on Apology
    On Her Majesty's Crosstime Service? Well Charlie already has On Her Majesty's Occult Service. Not his title I assume....
  • Commented on Apology
    It is a bit late to re-brand the whole series. Following Mc Auley's suggestions @17, I nearly made some based on your music preferences (I think). But what I found was either a bit long; "The Wild, The Beautiful and...
  • Commented on Service announcement: upcoming outage(s)
    I'd say this is off-topic, but I'm not sure there really is one, and we've discussed the one-way trip to Mars here before. Colorado man may be headed to Mars — for good The father is an acquaintance (and CS...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    Apologies again for going off-topic, and potentially inappropriately, but the name of the town made an old joke come to mind. Here it is with some embroidery: Two old Jews are sitting on a park bench discussing old times and...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    My father has a collection of Lee-Enfields; a half dozen, including a .22 training model. They have quite a kick. Admittedly, I was fairly young (9 or 10) the few times he took me and my brother to the firing...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    Whatever happened to "To Protect and Serve"? ..... I don't know your reasoning for that quote, but I thought for a long time that it was somehow the motto of "The US Police" It may not be quite that common...
  • Commented on The Ferguson Question
    Whatever happened to "To Protect and Serve"? Here's some thoughts I typed up a few days ago with no place to post them: It's a positive feedback loop. Police expect all young male members of GroupX to be violent/argumentative, and...
  • Commented on Hiatus
    If I understand the voting stats, "Neptune's Brood" came in second for novel. And VD's novelette came in behind No Award. So all's well with the world, at least parts of it....
  • Commented on Hiatus
    YES!! Congratulations to Charlie. No Loser's Party for you....
