    #7 - That ignores the multiple other times that the Palace of Oathbreakers have violated the Treaty of Union Between Scotland and England, going back to 1708CE....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    #823 - Mid 50s male. I can cook (and cook well according to others who eat my food) and do clothes repair type sewing. Both useful skills for anyone single. #831 - Maybe at least some men just "do less...

    #765 - Maybe I misread the original post, but I thought that the difference between a waist line (nebulous, and arguably there's no such thing in a top) and a waist band was relevant to your point. #768 - I...

    I will not feed the troll. I will not feed... Ah, who am I kidding? ;-) A waist band, in garment making, which was the context of this point, is a relatively narrow strip of fabric at the top of...

    My first choice from those, Subway. My typical Subway order involves the whole of the salad bar except the sauce, lettuce and olives. What was that about "nary a leafy green to be found" to be found again?...

    #684 - Well, without checking actual dates, I do know that during part of WW2 the Finns were allied with the Germans against the Soviets, and in another part with the Soviets against the Germans. #688 - Thanks for the...

    Well, FWIW I'd say that a swastika is a NAZI symbol if, and only if, it is displayed as a black cross in a white circle, on a red ground. Thus, for example (chosen advisedly), the pale blue swastika on...

    Serious(ish) answer - Even if SCORPION STARE has a range measured in light years, it will take calendar years to get from here to there, and then there's dissipation of energy at energy delivered = 1/distance^2 * energy emitted....

    See my #676. I don't know how much I'm helping, but you got me to try and do something positive....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    You still don't understand. These words and symbols have a power over you (and the population of Germany) not because of their history, but because you choose to give them that power....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Well, I'm trying to do something to help with "the system". Under my IRL name I'm a "Vine Voice" reviewer on "Large River", and you just prompted me to do a 2 more positive reviews of books by female authors,...

    #638 - You mean the majorly Jar-Jared "Mickeyshaft LockOut", which tries to be a calendar manager as well as an e-mayo client and address book? #644 - Complete and utter horse hockey! All the other uses of "faggot" are several...

    :-) But seriously, how do you think that velodrome riders got themselves and what was often their only bicycle to the track in the 1950s? NB, one of my great-uncles was a sports journalist and covered velodrome cycling back in...

    The law may have been changed, but UK law used to require a front brake but no rear brake on a fixie....

    #591 - True personal account from 1974 parents' evening (year 8). My science teacher told my parents "When Paws says something in class I know he knows what he's talking about because I know what he's talking about. I am...

    I have no idea what a "gamerbro" is, or why they would call someone a meatball. The sensible point is still that the word has multiple definitions....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    #536 - Faggot (noun). A meatball made of pork offal. #573 - Real name "Daily Mail"; optionally known as the "Daily Heil" which should tell you all you need to know about their politics....

    EC, Greg and Nojay - My five reasons for saying "Do not vote for either the Con Party or Liebour" are BoJo the Clown, Cor Bin, Cunt, Theresa Mayhem and Scamoron! Any mangling of baptismal names in the foregoing are...

    #475 - I've sound two ways of reducing SunOS 4 to a crawl:- 1) Use PV-Wave, which has the memory leak of the decade. You may have thought that Internet Exploder 8 had a memory leak but that's nothing to...

    You're reminding me of another point, where we had regular arguments that 2 or more machines that you could rsh between and had a common server were part of the same network, even if they were on separate network controllers....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    #460 to #462 - Using SunOS 4, it was fairly standard practice at my site to establish a remote shell window from the development SPARCs onto one of the faster one in quiet periods, and use the fast window for...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Some of us who are British (at least for now) are totally in support of Catalan rights, and the reunification of Ireland. I don't think we want the little Englandshirers though....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    #430 - True this, and it ignores how, speaking as one of the 10%, we tried to not use Wurd because of the mess that Mickeyshaft had made of the implementation of features like legal paragraphing by making it part...

    #372 - The trouble with Thiefrow is that it's too close to Larndarn! #384 - Er, it's not, if only because there are only 365.24 days in a year, hence why a year that ends 00 is only a leap...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    #330 - I doubt it; my sis has a Windows 7 machine that's been having a Java "update" that breaks its internet access refused for about 10 years now. Yes, but most people don't even see a need for it...

    Sherman vs $German First, choose your Sherman variant:- There's a world of difference between a "short 75 dry", a 76 wet is better, something like an Easy 8 or a Firefly is better than any standard medium, and an Isherman...
