    This would be quite useful in court cases. DEFENSE: Your Honour, my client's name is Greg Tingey. The first principle of all law texts and cases is that no-one with such a name can be convicted of any crime. In...

    Yes, that's the same guy....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    The book is All Those Explosions Were Someone Else’s Fault (link to a review of the book - OGH occasionally comments on that blog, for the extra cyber-stalky goodness)....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Events? Probably not. Locations? Yep. If you look at Google Maps, immediately north of the city of ... well, you know ... is a garbage dump. Which provides the location of the Act 3 action. It's been too long since...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Would this be The Road to Unfreedom? I read his On Tyranny and enjoyed it....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Charlie's muse was sent over by the Oglaf team. (Image mostly SFW - contains nothing that a baby hasn't seen close-up)....
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    Perhaps the NZ population should put some special lampposts close to these survivalist compounds. The lampposts can even be named after the rich arseholes, so that people will know who to hang from which when 'the Event' comes....

    If you're interested in fossils from the Devonian, Rock Glen Conservation Area is one of the best places in the world to find Devonian fossils. Bring your camera for that one - it's very scenic. If you're interested in mead,...

    Now landsmen all, whoever you may be, If you want to rise to the top of the tree, If your soul isn't fettered to an office stool, Be careful to be guided by this golden rule. Stick close to your...

    You can see a similar rig at the Petrolia Oil Museum. Petrolia, ON was one of the first places in the world that they drilled for oil. Lambton Museums use this rig for the tourists these days. Apparently, they get...
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    I'm going to second Naive Optimist's suggestion that you take a March-April sabbatical to a country that isn't proceeding to shoot itself repeatedly in one vital organ after the next. How about Canada? Our election isn't until October 2019 (when...
  • Commented on Canned Monkeys Don't Ship Well, the Remix Version
    Post-300 tangent: apparently, starting on August 1st, it will be legal in the USA to produce DIY 3D printed firearms in the USA. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jul/23/3d-printed-guns-court-settlement-trump-administration-cody-wilson This is horrific, to say the least. Made even more horrific since the big city closest...
  • Commented on Canned Monkeys Don't Ship Well, the Remix Version
    Just had a brain wave regarding: how to make the environmental bits of an STL ship work, inspired by my offhand comment about the population of the USA. Let's make a 'planet USA' for the sake of argument. We can...
  • Commented on Canned Monkeys Don't Ship Well, the Remix Version
    Pacific Ocean = Calm Ocean. --- Regarding minimum populations required for the STL ship to work: in a previous thread someone (Charlie? can't recall) suggested that a population of 325 million ought to do it-- enough to do most industrial...

    KSR also has humans beginning to shrink within 5 generations due to insular dwarfism. They also start to lose cognitive ability in that time. If such things were to happen (possible, I suppose - I'm not a biologist), you'd think...

    Bury some bronze tablets. They can last a long time....
  • Commented on The Pivot
    WOW, ỌYA-IYANSAN! YOU LIKE TO SHOUT A LOT, DON'T YOU! GERMANY DID NOT EXIST THEN, YOU UTTER FAILURE OF A MAN. I get it - I guess that Ireland did not exist until 1921 - it was just 'western England'...
  • Commented on The Pivot
    Is there any way to get my hands on the sequel to The Scarlet Fringe? I remember in an earlier post you mentioned that it had been written but never published....
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    The polynomial one occasionally posts to John Scalzi's blog. A recent response from the host: "Cthulhu [their current name there], your occasional reminder not to get so wrapped up in your persona that your posts become unintelligible. Try to stay...
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    Apropos of absolutely no recent comments, a comment I saw recently on Twitter: "I imagine being a seagull is pretty rad because it’s basically just endless fries and permission to scream whenever you want."...
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    Depression is a terrible thing. What's worse is that depression is an excellent liar. When you're caught in its toils, the notion that you're no good, nothing is ever going to get better, there's nothing to live for - all...
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    Best wishes to your ill family member. I hope they have a speedy and complete recovery....
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    That article makes me wonder if tumbrel or guillotine futures are sold on a stock exchange somewhere....
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    Brilliant! Molesworth and peason and grabber (with the prizewinning raffia) and the Doom that came to St Custard's....
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    OMG. Here's an idea: Angleton's work diary from the 1920s. Back when he was working in a school learning how to pass for human. This could be like Hogwarts, Charlie! Except that the Special One is a a teacher....
  • Commented on Cthulhu Counterfactual
    I was hiking at a conservation area northwest of Toronto. I got back to the parking lot. My car was the only one there. I saw two $20 bills on the ground. "This is my lucky day!" I said. I...

    Mack Reynolds was an American. I remember seeing a couple of his novels in my local bookstore in the early 1980s. "With a last name like that, I owe it to him to buy a couple of his books," I...
  • Commented on On hold
    I see that today is the 32nd anniversary of the first test of a vehicle powered by red mercury. Where does the time go?...
  • Commented on On hold
    Reminds me of my favourite dish: Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce, garnished with truffle pâté, brandy and a fried egg on top and Spam. Then I go cosplay as a viking....

    I'm sure that those hackers are sensitive, touchy-fillet guys....
