    Ah, yes. Vegreville, AB. Where in the winter many are cold, but few are frozen. (A common joke in Canada - simply change the place name and you have instant lulz)....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Arnold @ 1056: Just as soon as the builders have finished my Secret Underground Cavern H.Q. I WILL Rule The World!! So There!!! Soon I Will be Invincible Scott Sanford @1079: Sad Puppies...self-destructing. ISTR that they didn't self-destruct. It required...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Some of them realized that they were, indeed, under personal threat AOC mentioned in a tweet that she and other (usually female Democrats) have been facing those exact kind of personal threats ever since they were elected. And yet they've...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    A good quote from Arcmedia's article about Qanon attracting the attention of the Three Letter Agencies: "You cheered on lawyers who said they’d release the Kraken. But now you’ve poked Leviathan." https://arcdigital.media/qanon-woke-up-the-real-deep-state-72bbfcb79488...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    The Republican Party will not split. It will remain the party of White Supremacy, Evangelical "Christians", and anti-abortion (ie: anti-women). In short: the Authoritarian Party. The next Republican President (whether elected in 2024, 2028 or whenever) will, if as competent...

  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    I had a geography teacher in when I was in Grade 9 who dedicated a whole period's lecture to how Canada should move its capital to Churchill, MB because it was close to the geographic centre of Canada. He came...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    "Of the 12 commercial artists we used, only 4 of them were still in the mental hospital after 6 months." "What about the other 8?" "... the morgue."...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    OK, here's a question I just thought of last night. You mention in a throwaway line that The Mandate's face is now on the money (and presumably coins, stamps, etc). How does that work, anyway? We're told that he is...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    We're now doing some form of devolution (and the creation of another province, Nunavut) for the Yukon Territory and Northwest Territories who used to be ruled directly from Ottawa. It occurs to me that a solution to Gibraltar & the...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    By all accounts, the Queen got along much better with Jean Chrétien than Pierre Trudeau. She got quite a kick out of him saying shit! (merde!) when a pen broke at the signing ceremony for the Canadian Constitution in 1982....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Greg @16: It's astonding to realise that "Maggie" would be horrified by all this - she was one of the original, principal proponents of "the single market". OTOH, from what I understand, MT was very much in favour of screwing...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    WHAT is your favorite color? Witroth! No! Don't ask those questions! Do you want Charlie to be pitched over the Bridge of Death if he gets one of them wrong?...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    Why was First of Spies and Liars so damn incompetent? It wasn't that she was incompetent. She knew that the Queen spent her time smiling, not smiting. Also that Leeds was a small provincial town[1]. Cassie was caught in the...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    I wondered as I was reading the novel why Rupert didn't just join the victorious opposition MANICHEISM, n. The ancient Persian doctrine of an incessant warfare between Good and Evil. When Good gave up the fight the Persians joined the...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    OT, but it is a strange attractor around here. A reference to a possible A.I. revolt occurs in this comic strip....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Prop 22 passed? Shit. On the plus side, the gigarich win again....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I woke up at 1.30 EST and made the mistake of checking how things were going. At that time, DJT was ahead in the EC and I said to myself: America just rolled a critical failure. Again. Difficulty getting back...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    That's too bad. On his 90th birthday (25 August 2020) someone recounted a Connery anecdote. Don't know if it's true. Connery was in Edinburgh for the Fringe around 2005. He was in a cab, and amazed the cabbie by being...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Cairo become kay-ro Heh. In southwestern Ontario, we have a Delhi that's pronounced Del-hi (accent on the second syllable) in the local parlance. The county just south of where I live is Elgin, pronounced the correct way. I have heard...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Heh. LBJ actually picked up and shook Canada's then-PM, Lester B. Pearson. A good thing that LBJ didn't try that with Pierre Trudeau, our next PM (and father of our current PM). The elder Trudeau was a black belt in...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Aargh. I meant he could smash mirrors inside (although interior windows are probably not bulletproof)....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    When he finds that he can't smash the windows, he would find that there's plenty of smashable stuff inside - windows, vases, etc. And yes, I think DJT would be just that petty & childish....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Also, Barrack Obama has the singular distinction of being the only US president who had the same number of stars on the flag when he was born as when he took office. With more states, the USA could keep the...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Re: adding States to the Union. They should clearly add Puerto Rico, Washington, DC and American Samoa. This would bring the state count up to 53, which would have the benefit of making the "One Nation, Indivisible" true, since 53...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    You only need to fix a few states to win. And voter suppression has been the norm for decades (even if less blatant) and nothing has come it. True. Which is why when I see breathless headlines saying "Biden leads...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    What if the conservative judges meet for a nice victory dinner and somehow a food-poisoning happens? I realize that the scenario you are describing is fictional. And things would be better (IMO) if the SCOTUS actually reflected the will of...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    Well I have my copy now. Very entertaining so far. My god, who would have thought that the Lovecraftian Singularity would suck so much for the people caught in it?...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    How can I get my hands on a copy before next Tuesday? Asking for a friend....
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    No information on when the Benthic Treaty was signed. Strangely, Wikipedia is silent on the subject. However, if you're willing to accept a non-Wikipedia source, it was signed in 1957. https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=502925...
