  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    In the process of following links on Youtube I found a report on someone who actually had a solar tile roof installed by Musk's company back in 2018. It cost the Tesla fanboy (he has at least one Tesla car...

    That particular PV-window concept had been dragging a wing around the funding circuit for at least a decade, maybe more. To say that the efficiency of the prototypes is "poor" doesn't begin to describe it and no price-to-manufacture is mentioned...

    True, but for a few nanoseconds the panels will generate a LOT of electricity, more than you'll ever need for the rest of your life in fact. It's like when I was testing a power supply I had just repaired...

    The basic physics says that red light will produce less energy than blue light from solar cells. It's quantum, the photon interaction with the substrate has to boost an electron's energy high enough to get it to disassociate. Red photons...

    I've always been a fan of the toroidal universe, That reminded me of the "Hunt the Wumpus" computer game which had a toroidal map in some versions....

    And who exactly makes up this 'inner circle'? He's probably referring to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Labour Party which is a secretive inner circle group pulling strings from the shadows: https://labour.org.uk/about/how-we-work/national-executive-committee/whos-on-the-nec/ Well, maybe not THAT secretive. They're...

    Labour's agreed position on Brexit if they form the next government is pretty clear to me at least but then I've spent a few minutes actually looking at it. I don't know about you though... A Labour government, presumably with...

    There's a lot of freight that isn't pipeline -- Royal Mail, for example moves millions of tonnes of material a year and only a small amount goes by rail because it isn't pipeline. Supermarket trucks, the sort you see parked...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I think leaving the EU is an incredibly stupid and pointless and wasteful thing to do but Brexit is a process, not an end of itself except to millions of Leave cultists, a significant minority of whom are lifelong Labour...

    Tony The Fucking Vicar's constituency? Really? Mr. Iraq War Tony Blair? Words fail me... Labour is shedding voters because they're too friendly to the idea of Remain as it is, along with repeated "Corbyn is a demon wrapped in human...

    Most Labour voters who support Leave will not vote Conservative because they just don't vote for the Tories. They might not vote Labour though if Labour goes full-bore Remain and that cuts the Labour support by 10% or more. Sunderland,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    If the government was in charge, then Brexit would be done and the election called and finished. The government is in charge, it governs (it's even part of it's name!) The debate has been, who's in control. That's different. Horrifyingly...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Grain, chemicals, crushed stone, oil and a whole lot of other commodities are pipeline freight items, handled most effectively by trains and ships and, in some cases, actual pipelines. The markers of pipeline freight are low cost, high volume and...

    By "JC" I presume you mean Emmanuel Goldstein, don't you? The last Two Minute Hate should have kept you abreast of things. There can only be one Leave Party and the Tories are well aware of that hence their all-out...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The inherent problem remains that Parliament knows what it doesn't want, Parliament isn't in charge, the Government is and it knows what wants -- for the current Prime Minister to remain the Prime Minister into the near future. PM Johnson...

    Banking is Big Business in Scotland and has been for three hundred years. The capital of Scotland is physically dominated by two sorts of buildings, churches and banks. The churches were built as signifiers of social piety by rich people,...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Jeremy Corbyn is a concensus politician, not a Absolute Leader type like Blair. What he personally believes is not Labour Party policy, that's clear despite the best efforts of the media to label him as totally in charge of policy...

    That's not what bugs _Moz_ (and me too). The Economics prize that's just been awarded was created and funded by a bank, the Sveriges Riksbank back in 1969. It's labelled "in memory of Alfred Nobel" but it's not a Nobel...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    There is no legal requirement for anyone detained or charged by the police in Britain to say anything while being questioned or to say anything in court if prosecuted. There is no need to plead anything like the 5th Amendment...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    There are plenty of contemporary paintings showing other battles including sieges and the like where bowmen and crossbowmen are firing upwards. The Agincourt battle depictions show very few if any crossbowmen and the archers are firing horizontally into ranks of...

    This was discussed in the video... At Agincourt (the particular battle this video was aimed at, so to speak) the French knights attacked the English lines on foot through sucking mud after a cavalry charge failed due to wet ground...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    I've seen pictures of jungle dwellers shooting with vary large bows. Their draw weight is nothing much and draw length is limited by the size of the archer's arms, not the span of the bow. The arrows are overlong for...

    Anthony Wedgwood Benn, ferociously intelligent but not capable of running a whelk stall. Enoch Powell, smart as a whip but needed a minder to tape his mouth shut in public. They still made it into Parliament where they were no...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    There was the time I was driving a car full of SF fans home from a convention. As I came off the motorway down the ramp I said "We're in the pipe five by five." Passenger-seat said "Picking up some...

    now they advise you to sit in the car like a pudding waiting, The standard advice these days is to get everyone and their little dog too out of the car and move to the other side of the...

    But if we're gonna' be playing with "full auto", I want a "Ma Deuce" Best cinematic implementation of the M2 I've ever seen was in "Waterworld" where they used a privately-owned quad-mount .50 AA unit to good effect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoSLZP0e-M4 Note...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    The Beretta 93R can do three-round burst too but it requires a shoulder-stock unit to clip onto the butt, turning it into a nearly-controllable shoulder-mounted machine-pistol. The shoulder-stock had a three-lobed sear that controlled the burst-fire mode, without it fitted...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    I saw a wildcat rifle/round a long time back, the .475 LTD -- that stood for Lott-Tanner Dinosaur -- which was a modern case (a necked-down .50 BMG IIRC) and nitro-based propellant load for a classic cordite-based heavy-game bullet to...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    if you can imagine some kind of gun, it exists. .600 Nitro Express revolver? Yes, it does kick a bit (search on YouTube if you want to see it)....
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    The problem was finding video cards in my junkbox and elsewhere i.e. not spending money, to fit into a repurposed server which I got for very little money (and there's a genuinely funny story attached to why it was so...
