  • Commented on Gods and genre
    Err, don't get me started on Libertarian Republicans and the War on certain Drugs... But then, with Lensmen it might be a question of historical context; the 30s is not that lon after the establishment of modern international drug legislation,...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    BTW, for a somewhat real example of strange cases of an illness croping up, and working out what happened, ther is always the MPTP story: https://www.erowid.org/archive/rhodium/chemistry/mptp.serendipity.html...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Oh yes, Mhari... Somewhat typical of Bob to think she was either just recovering from a bad relationship or bipolar, when in fact it might be a mixture of both, some conditions make for debatable choices in significant others. But...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    I'm somewhat wandering how Bob's "early warning system" is going to work out in the long run. Of course, in this case it was quite easy because Basil orchestrate the creation of a vampire nest, thus creating a very strong...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Well, in the Laundryverse magic more or less runs on information, and music is just a special kind of information. We know magic works with computers (electrical impulses) and human brains (concentrations of ions and neurotransmitters), which is already somewhat...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Saw your tweets about the title and thought of suggesting "The Megiddo Score", Sounds interesting. Given the angry mails Charlie got over Cheney in the "Merchant Princes"-verse, some part of me wants to see the reaction of the "Left Behind"...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Thanks, actually, it was meant as something of a joke what fandom reaction to a bisexual Mhari could be like. Not that I think this is the kind of fanfiction we need, though I kinda miss Pinky and Brain. That...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Well, if I found something similar in one of my papers, my first idea would be I copy-pasted some paragraphs to get the format, but forgot to change the text. This is quite common with M$ Word, but it might...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    May I cite a private TV Tropes addiction in my defense? Err. As already said, SCNR, I got somewhat carried away, delete it if, err, too inappropiate. I hoped I stopped before it got really revolsive....
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Not that sure if that's a good idea. Of course, this would make for interesting Rule 34 fodder[1], but... Oscar being female and lesbian is quite close to the "Psycho Lesbian" trope, http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PsychoLesbian and Mhari or non-Marianne being bi would...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Well, there is also some female-female talk not about men in some of the comitees; one of the Auditors is female, and she speaks with Mhari, and some of the coffin-dodgers, so I'd say it's a clear pass....
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Hm, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mhairi gives some ideas. I'm not that sure about her background, but "Murphy" is originally Irish, so may even herself is not that sure about the pronunciation. Parents giving their children foreign sounding names are a funny issue, I...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Err, make this "Kuru goes for the cerebellum". Damn, anybody knows a nearby MRI, just to be sure? Err, for classification of prion diseases: http://brain.oxfordjournals.org/content/126/6/1333.short http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/content/66/1/241.abstract and http://bmb.oxfordjournals.org/content/66/1/213.abstract It seems like there are different forms of prions in different part...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Well, actually the question forced itself somewhat, especially since we knew "dead blood" was disgusting, keeping in mind the animal blood was from slaughtered animals. But well, this is Charlie's universe, so let's see what he is making out of...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    I thought similar about Mo and Angleton, but then, the violin didn't exactly care for Bob before he tried to save Mhari. So maybe it's not so much his Eater of Soul promotion, but the fact he went between the...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    For the "Talk to you later", well, may I remind you of "I may be some time."?...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    As mentioned, I guess humans would still be somewhat on top in computation power, I'm just not that sure how much; also note brain size is not necessarily all, it might depend on neuron number (subject to neuron volume, number...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Also note there might be a way out if you put the victim into a suitable summoning grid or like, if the therapy of K syndrome applies......
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    BTW, for cerebellum size across species: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24795574...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Well, ditto for the experiments on live animal blood, though who's to say nobody did it before, see BSE. Also, we don't know if K or V syndrome are not contagious, eating something is quite likely establishing a sympathetic link,...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Err, may I just remind you Alex is a "rules lawyer"? "Trying to think" and "thinking" are not the same, so "stop trying to think" is not "stop thinking", where we might argue to what degree "stopping to think" is...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Well, there are different ways of enhancing humans; first of, expect non-Marianne to be quite versed in martial arts, both conventional and somewhat more esoteric; same goes for resistance towards mind control, the most basic one being Alex (a vampire,...

    Added in barely decipherable handwriting: Forwarded to the auditors for further inquiry. It's bad enough the Black Chamber supercharged the Valenzetti Equation by leaking numbers not to be named to the General Population. On another note, feel invited to my...
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    Eco is agood starting point, though I'd argue with some of his specifics, namely syncretism and a tendency to put disagreement aside; you get similar with quite a few cultures and religions, usually in a context where better long range...
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    Greg, the problem is comparisons to and accusations fascism are so widespread they have lost most of their cognitive or shock value[1]. And they are also sometimes issued by guys and gals who are nearly isomorph to fascism themselves. Hope...
  • Commented on The Rhesus Chart: Chapter One
    Err, as already mentioned, it's not a "male-female" thing. I have fond memories of an employer who thought me arriving somewhat late in case of a computer emergency being an example of a power struggle, of course the 10 km...
  • Commented on The Rhesus Chart: Chapter One
    I wouldn't read too much into Bob's cephalopodocidal tendencies. Yes, it might be him being insensitive, but in my personal experience, this is a game both sexes excel at, maybe there are some differences, but there is a BIG overlap....
  • Commented on YAPC::NA 2014 keynote: Programming Perl in 2034
    Ah, but WHICH history. Is Syria/ISIS the 30 years war, or the start of a new Lebensraum ... err ... Decisions can be difficult. Also note comparisons might influence our course of action; another one that comes to mind concerning...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Invocating a hound of Tindalos with Laundry equipment for coarsing is misappropriation of workplace material and illegal under the 2004 Hunting Act. Also note that most likely it's not just the rabbit that is proper fucked. In other news, thanks...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Handing out copies of "The Complete Guide to Shuggoth Sex" is not approved use of Laundry equipment....
