    LML, thanks for the documentary, and the rest. The thread level has just passed into the red zone on my synchronicity gauge. HA! I don't know if you have read the book: The Trickster and the Paranormal by George Hansen...

    Thanks for the response. I went digging more and slowly began to realize that Star Trek Next Generation did have powers that would have been called 'gods' if the episode had been in TOS. I began to realize that what...

    I have a question. In Star Trek TOS they came across a number of gods. In Star Trek Next Generation, other than Q, did they come across gods. I can't remember any. Norman coordinate. HA!...

    In answer to your snarky question: Yes, that's what I'm saying. Much as you may want to ignore and twist what I said @169, I worked in the real world, and survived to retirement seeing many such events. BTW, I...

    To the subthread about "affirmative action", it was much simpler than that at the Highway Department. We had a class action suit by a woman Engineer over sexual harassment, late 80s. She won, it destroyed her as a person of...

    Daniel Duffy @117 Wiki - The Nine Nations of North America As another example. What's interesting, is the book came out in 1981, and Heinlein clearly used it as the basis for his novel Friday, published 1982. The character was...

    Bill Arnold @91 Wow! The links apply to my WIP -- massively so. Thanks... For the quote about "Nothing": I must refer you to the movies The Neverending Story 1 and 2, but not 3(It was corrupted by the Nothing.)...

    Using Charlie @31 and you as Delphic Oracle @88, I can work with that. Thanks... - Nothing can be forced now without courting grave consequences....

    Charlie, I've been searching and I can't figure out what "peculiar American folk religion, dating to roughly the 1830s in its current form" that you are talking about. I read all of the fun stuff about Quiverfull, but that seems...

  • Commented on Solarpunk rising, or how to turn boring bureaucratic meetings into creative fodder
    Frank, feel free to delete this if it derails the thread. I hate to say this, but you guys are thinking too small, and impractical, when you think of having PV power systems on city roofs. Utilities depend on scale,...

    Trottelreiner @735 If the water supply is not working, fill the toilet bowl with water so that the trap is filled. To "flush" the toilet pour a bucket of water into the bowl, that will trigger the emptying. Also, if...
