  • 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...
  • Commented on Writer, Interrupted
    Note: Metformin will take out your kidneys if they are otherwise being stressed (say, by some forms of chemotherapy used to go after Hodgkins' and other lymphomas, as my husband found out during a low blood sugar crisis that nearly...
  • Commented on Sometimes I don't know why I bother!
    If you can't do something with Benjamin Disraeli, you're doing it wrong. Anyone with the savoir-faire to change from a morning cane to an afternoon one at noon while passing through Egypt with one's sister's fiancé (who didn't survive the...
  • Commented on Who wins? Cthulhu or the Emperor of Mankind from Warhammer 40K?
    I am going off on a tangent (which of course never happens here, right?) and taking a look at GURPS Vorkosigan. Miles might have just enough charisma to recruit the Great Old One into the Dendarii, but would this actually...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Here's what I've been reading-- QUALIFY, by Vera Nazarian (a nice freebie)--Divergent type book, with an asteroid hurtling towards Earth (though rather slowly) and space aliens offering rescue to people who make it through various contests. Good fast reading, worldbuilding...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    US citizens have *always* talked Like That for various reasons (and various portions of states have been disgruntled for a long time, google history of the State of Jefferson--we had a petition all ready to turn in, but alas it...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    There's an island off the coast of Louisiana which has just been evacuated, as the remaining land area is shrinking and currently much too little for the 400 people there to do much of anything except drown. The Florida Keys?...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    A good cry is far more helpful and less lethal than lots of other coping methods I have seen (driving too fast, alcohol, driving too fast *with* alcohol, gunplay, setting off fireworks without paying attention to how dry the grass...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Oh, you must have seen my grandmother when she was still stuck with the Ford Thunderbird...fortunately, after his death she traded it in for a tiny car that she could see over the steering wheel in, was still driving around...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    "This, i think, is nightmare fuel and sums up UKIP quite succinctly. I don't blame you for wanting to leave the cesspit that the UK could potentially become but with fundamentalism on the rise globally it's difficult to know where...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Quite true--bathed in Magical Cop Powers, someone who is black or rather blatantly Different probably won't have that much trouble for the span of a few days. I suspect, however, that the British countryside is not ready for prime time...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I think some of the social currents were already there--that is, if you take Jo Walton's FARTHING universe to heart. In Victorian days, it seems to me that port cities like London and Liverpool were cosmopolitan, and so nobody was...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    No. At least not till we know a great deal more. Human groups tend to fall part past a certain size anyway, and we have all seen the wonderfulness of group think, sometimes by being the target of it. Some...
