  • Commented on Playtime is over
    I wish I had absurd humor response. I really do not -- "Saturday Night Live" is to me totally unfunny, and painful to watch. So I just page down through all of CD's ravings....
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    Not to mention that the leading cause of firearms deaths in Switzerland and Sweden is suicide, not homicide. That's the case in US also....

    Pretty unexpected development -- at least I did not expect it: Summary on Tulsi Gabbard, for those who do not know about her: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsi_Gabbard...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    Quote from the link: Machine learning algorithms have one big weakness: they cannot analyze or understand events that never happened before. For example, you buy beach front property where in the past two hundred (200) years numerous hurricanes never caused...

    This contrasts very sharply with some Jews I know, who voted for Trump precisely because of his view on Muslims. (They like Le Pen too.)...
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    Something like that happened in real life. Google "games without frontiers" -- not the song, but the actual games after which the song is named....

  • Commented on Playtime is over
    One thing I had not seen mentioned here yet: Why quite a few Jews voted for Trump: http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2011/05/the_five_stages_of_islam.html Mind you, I do not buy it. But I know Jews who consider the "creeping Islam" to be the greater threat than...

  • Commented on Duelling - Essentially a Bloody Stupid Idea
    If it is a self-driving taxi -- which is how I expect they will be used, as opposed to privately owned, -- then no, you cannot order it to park itself. It will let you out, then proceed to the...
  • Commented on Duelling - Essentially a Bloody Stupid Idea
    Even people who swear black and blue that they would die themselves rather than mow down 30 people in that scenario (it was a similar one but you get the point) baulk at having a driverless car make that decision...
  • Commented on The Day After
    In addition to the crumbling of the Beige Dictatorship, you're experiencing the biggest political [and social] realignment in the Western world since the 1960s. Maybe I am being dense, but isn't "the crumbling of the Beige Dictatorship" simply PART of...
  • Commented on The Day After
    A college friend of mine who is Jewish, voted for Trump because he is convinced that Muslim immigration and the "creeping Sharia" are a far greater threat than fundamentalist Christianity. Basically, he bought completely into Mark Steyn's "Eurabia" -- that...

  • Commented on The Day After
    Oh, and I need to start an ImpeachTrump campaign. I mean, the GOP was planning it before Bill was inaugurated in '92, and sauce for the goose.... Be careful what you wish for. If Trump is impeached, Pence becomes President....
  • Commented on Wooden Train Parenting
    Still feel that we need more games/activities that teach kids how to collaborate and work effectively with others because collaboration (not just giving/following orders) seems to be becoming more important as our societies become more complex. In my experience, MMORPG's...

    Better then chess. Oh Jesus, Cthulhu and Quezalcoatl! Growing up as a smart boy in Russia, I had to play chess. It was just a given. And while I did not hate it, in fact rather liked it, what I...

  • Commented on Ever Young?
    I am not a lawyer, so this is just informed speculation: 1. It was not so much the fact that Peter Watts was a foreigner, but the fact that he was in the process of crossing the border, and on...

    prosecutor chose a charge that required demonstrating conspiracy and then couldn't prove it. It may sound bizarre to non-Americans, but in Malheur standoff there was not much else to charge them with. Weapon charges (or which they were also acquitted)...
  • Commented on Just plain icky
    Mind/body dualism as an actual biological reality would be an interesting story hook. See David Gerrold's Chtorr books. Most of Chtorrans' nervous system, including their "fur", is a separate symbiotic organism. And it can infect many other animals, including humans....
  • Commented on Just plain icky
    no other critter eats itself into disease, keeps killing even when not threatened or hungry, etc. Sorry, but that is just plain false. Predators do kill for fun if they can; Masai have an expression "like a lion among penned...
