  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    In re possible West Coast storms--promises, promises. I live in an area where most of the smoke from various fires in Northern California, Southern Oregon, and parts of Central Oregon has decided to vacation. If the damn thing puts out...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    My favorite last gasp method for waking someone involves a cold drink with ice in it poured down the neck, while shouting fairly loudly. I have a clear, penetrating voice developed while I was a nurse's aide/USAF officer/mom. Plus, in...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    I once sat behind a big, strong man seated near the emergency exits. He looked unhappy since he had been up a long time and was exhausted. I told him to go ahead and sleep, and if anything happened, I...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    Apparently Donald Trump Jr. thought he was collaborating with Russians to whack Hillary Clinton in the election. And Trump giving classified information to Russian officials, and wanting to collaborate (dare I say collude) with Russia over cybersecurity is seen as...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    One last ship name: HMS BECAUSE WE CAN. (Unpacking: Jay Leno once made a joke about Al Qaeda fighters protesting against being bombed from 30,000 feet. Mr. Leno said, "Why do we do it? Because we can.")...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    "Every time a house goes off the grid, an oil rig dies." ROTFLMAO!!! I trust that no kittens were harmed in the creation of that post? mark --No, though the cat sleeping on my lap as I type this still...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    As for the Old West, cowboys were often required to leave their guns with the local sheriff while they were in town, because of the shooting things up problem. In Hayes, Kansas during the late 1800's, children were told to...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    If you're looking for the maximum evil version, the Trumpsters just exempt churches but nobody else from the politics ban. --The entry cost for establishing a church in the US is really, really low. One Pastafarian ran for the local...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Resilience.org has some lovely essays about peak demand in regards to oil and other carbon products. And as long as the price is over $40, the US oil rig count is up, which (along with a truly stupendous glut in...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    I'm Facebook, so if you leave me a message there I should get it. I would be delighted to meet another fan, gafiated or not. Thank you!...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    You honestly think the Trump administration is capable of behaving that rationally? I'm glad I won't be at the Super Bowl myself, not even if the ticket prices have dropped dramatically. Hmm, using Paranoid Thought, perhaps there's a reason for...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    If you ever find yourself in Klamath Falls, you're certainly welcome at our house (separate guest room, cat, 10,000 books). It is nearly a certainly that out of all the people at our local airport, at least one of them...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    There are already some similar road race movies--the CANNONBALL movies for instance. Though my favorite in the genre is called RAT RACE. Just be careful when you go into the Barbie museum...and oh wait...YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A SQUIRREL. (there...
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    Of course, the same programs that limit health care to 'urban' populations will also end up limiting health care to the rural ones, too. Oops....
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    You assume that people who currently get ACA subsidies and people on Medicare and the VA will be held harmless. Look up the voucher system proposed by Paul Ryan--do you really think that Republicans won't take advantage of this opportunity...
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    And yet even in the scenario where the insurance company can pass off responsibility, it's quite likely that some enraged person with a death sentence out of all of those being told 'sucks to be you' may well decide to...
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    "I understand the sentiment (you have a lot of company BTW), but it is likely that if the Republicans make a move on Medicare (unlikely IMO) it will leave benefits for current beneficiaries untouched, so the pool of severely affected...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Although when the Nazi rabid raccoons and the corvids try to take over New York City, they'll have to deal with Pizza Rat and his minions. I call this CASE CANDY CRUSH......
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    The attempt to set up a Muslim registry in the US may be resisted by more people than some think--I have talked with my local pastor about setting a 'King of Denmark Society' whereby church members line up to register...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    Sadly, Paul Ryan is not as rational a Randite as people seem to think. Despite Ayn Rand's rather specific pronouncements on the subject, Ryan is against contraception and abortion. He combines the worst of both worlds--total lack of charity towards...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    The Juggalos, at least in my part of the woods, are heavily involved in meth manufacture and distribution. This does not help public perception of them....
  • Commented on In other news ...
    Stephen Colbert called Bannon "Walking Dead Redford". Mix THE PELICAN BRIEF with WALKING DEAD, whee, plot bunny! (fortunately not mine, I have enough of them to invade Australia, but it's free for adoption by anybody who wants it)....
  • Commented on A reminder
    Elderly Cynic, if you wish to contact me privately, I am certain that I could find a format that you would like. DEAD MAN'S HAND is available in hard copy through Createspace, although it's fairly spendy that way. However, if...
  • Commented on A reminder
    No, the telepresence work would be offered at the same rates. In fact, there would be no difference between the male and female patients because the robot is doing the lifting. And because of differing attitudes about viewing nudity, Frank...
  • Commented on A reminder
    I quite agree on women in muscular jobs--I was a nurse's aide, and I typically lifted or rolled or moved larger loads than in an awful lot of 'male' jobs at the time (1970's). Though I will have to admit...
  • Commented on A reminder
    This is a comment on a topic which has drifted out to sea and hasn't been seen for awhile, but renewable energy could be sold to older people (and is) as 'saving money'--but hasn't been sold to them as 'remember...
  • Commented on Duelling - Essentially a Bloody Stupid Idea
    I am a little surprised that nobody has brought up the story of Rudolph Virchow, the discoverer of botulism...in the story, he was challenged to a duel by a fellow student or professor, and as the challenged party, chose two...
  • Commented on Ever Young?
    Thank you for the hint, I shall do so in future. It was mostly a long list of how early I ended up adulting, why it was still better than childhood, and how I look forward to a happier childhood,...
  • Commented on Ever Young?
    Hmmm...I wrote rather a large comment, hit submit and it disappeared. Is there a length limit? [[ Not caught in the filters I'm afraid - mod ]]...
  • Commented on Sometimes I don't know why I bother!
    Then there's Casanova. Many of his exploits have been confirmed by contemporaries (he dined out on that prison escape for decades). One has difficulty summarizing all of his accomplishments, though I should think all of them were overwhelmed by his...
