  • Commented on A plaintive request
    I'm pretty sure he's claiming that Sharia supposedly gets a pass from Liberals, not WBC. Bullshit either way, and ignores that there are various schools of Sharia, some more liberal than others. Most of what gets called Sharia is actually...
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    Okay, never mind--mostly, still wouldn't mind a review. Like Wilde said; "I can resist everything except temptation" All's well so far....
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    While I'm thinking of it, Can we expect a review of Scrivener for iOS? I have a few questions (not that this is really the place to ask them), mainly if it will run on older iPads?...
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    Since someone brought this up a little while ago, and hasn't anything to do with recent discussions, I'll leave this here. Is Reddit's Creepy '_9MOTHER9HORSE9EYES9' a Netflix Marketing Stunt?...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    That animation of the logo is excellent, though I think it could use some sound effect. Grunting to the rhythm perhaps....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    Think Florida, only nastier. I try not to, I'm originally from Jacksonvile, but I assume you're referring to the nasty algae they're having now. ...close only counts in tactical nuclear weapons. I usually hear that as "Close only counts in...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    Charlie made a joke about CASE NIGHTMARE GAMMA RAY on twitter a few days ago. Ever since I've had the idea in my head of CASE NIGHTMARE CERENKOV BLUE; when alien followers of the Elder Gods zip in with their...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    So, the GOP is allying itself with UKIP? Fanfuckingtastic. Key Brexit figure Farage to attend GOP convention...

    And a photo of the event from twitter....
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    The mangled quote gets me around needing to shell out cash for a license to use the exact words. Sorry! I had that thought belatedly about the Bauhaus lyrics in the last book. Safer to mangle them somewhat than to...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Just back from my local Barnes & Noble. Two copies on the shelf--now one, and they're also minus a copy of the new Yoon Ha Lee novel....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    P7 -- the Pale Patriarchal Protestant Penis-People of Power Was about to say that sounds like the Worst. Superhero. Team. Ever! But obviously they're the villains. Umm, also that's 6 Ps....
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Yaaay! My bookstore trip will have to wait a few days, hopefully they'll actualy have it in stock, though past history doesn't make me hopeful. And then there was a recent report I heard about B&N being in trouble....

  • Commented on Nightmare Stacks competition results ...
    Minor thing, the MALCOINS link goes to ecotax's Recent Actions page, rather than to the entry. [[ Now fixed - mod ]]...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    "If you have a mass-murderer running around with an axe, then you can outrun him. But if you have a murderer with assault rifle, then you cannot outrun him. Having your own gun does not help since it is likely...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Possibly worse than that. "In one of the later cartoons, it is revealed that ACME is "A Wholly-Owned Subsidiary Of Roadrunner Corporation," suggesting that The Road-Runner possibly controlled the nature of the products that Wile E. ordered so that they...
  • 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...

    Okay, maybe "Das Kapital of the Vampyr", "The Origin of Lycanthropic Species" or "Guns, Germs and Steel Unicorns"?...
