  • Commented on Quantum of Nightmares
    My wife looked at this seaweed lingerie ( https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/Ub50914173d594a99b790208fc78cd56dl/1-Set-Graphene-Seaweed-Fabric-Leopard-Print-Camouflage-Sexy-Sports-Bra-Underwear-Alluring-Bra-Lingerie-Intimates.jpg ) and said "Who the hell puts lace on the leg holes? First it chafes, second, if it peeks out it looks like pubic hair"...

    Actually, I have the best US Navy camo pattern yet: Seaweed camo!. And it's in stock. Good for invading harbor side buildings, I believe. I just had to look it up. And found... https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/Ub50914173d594a99b790208fc78cd56dl/1-Set-Graphene-Seaweed-Fabric-Leopard-Print-Camouflage-Sexy-Sports-Bra-Underwear-Alluring-Bra-Lingerie-Intimates.jpgQ90.jpg.webp...

    Compare it to pre-renunciation male court dress What is pre-renunciation (or just renunciation) in this context?...

    That's so I can hit them when they're jogging down my streets when it's not bright sunshine outside That may be the case where you live, but the link in JBS's post shows leggings with PINK camouflage, which is the...

  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    But it is also a hilarious macguffin for a sci-fi tale. What would be the consequences of the elderly getting their full mental adaptability back? Has been done in science fiction many times. First thing that comes to mind if...

    The beginning of more widespread BMI Did you mean "UBI"? BMI means Body Mass Index. Although you could argue that in US it is loosened already. :)...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    As witness Trump mocking his anti-vaxx followers last week and announcing he'd had his booster shot. He played them for chumps. Just earlier today I read a post by some anti-vaxxer who is convinced Trump "never took this poison" but...
  • Commented on Omicron
    the motor pool of one of his units only had one working starter for a couple of dozen trucks Are you sure it was "one working starter" and not "one working battery"? AFAIK, if starter motor does not work, jump-starting...

    I see your point, but it's not quite what I was asking (and I don't think it is quite what Pigeon meant). I was asking about policies failing because they are applied to humans whose unstated assumptions differ from the...
  • Commented on Omicron
    the policy originated among one particular group and carries along with it a huge tail of that group's own unspoken assumptions. If you try and transfer it to another group with their own background habits of thought, most of the...

  • Commented on Omicron
    Yes, you got it!...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Sounds like a possible plot element for a movie. I wonder if anyone has thought of it? It would have to be more than an element of the plot. More like the foundation of it....
  • Commented on Omicron
    putting all our critical generators in a few targets is maybe...a suboptimal strategy going forward This is why I do not believe we will have a space elevator any time soon -- and by "soon" I mean "within next two...
  • Commented on Omicron
    NOT as big a load of LYING UTTER SHIT as the "safe" limits for booze, of course, but that's another story. Can you elaborate on this? Because I really do not know what you mean here....
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    I am afraid all the speculations here about how White Wing could or could not take over and/or blockade cities, are entirely academic. There are not enough delusional Timothy McVeigh types to ever get to that stage, although they might...

    Alas, all too often "treat it like a hobby" is not an option....
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Money WAS involved. Just not directly. Someone paid those folks enough to put food on the table, a roof over their heads, and the expenses involved in all the meetings and coordination. As soon as I read Paul's post, I...

    I had met (online, not in person) right-wingers who swear that Charlie Kirk audience member, and others who say similar things on camera, are all FBI plants. "Anyone who is not undercover FBI would be arrested at once for saying...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Interesting ... because the CIA's charter prohibits them to operate domestically. I am aware of it. I did not ask him, but my impression was they would rather take the retirement than to find themselves in a legally murky area....
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Talked today at length with a friend of mine who retired from CIA few months ago. As in fully retired -- he has not been active for years, but now has turned in his security clearance. Which frees him up...

    This hardly fills me with confidence. Historically, when 20% of a population wanted a civil war, civil war happened. (I mean seriously wanted, as opposed to just being loudmouths)...

    With a side-order of genocide against the "Indians" Perhaps it is not an accident that while most Native Americans stayed neutral in the American Revolution, those who did not were overwhelmingly on the British side....

    It's not in the book at all. In fact, the only thing we learn about Synnax is "the planet where Gaal Dornick was born". That’s literally all the book says about Synnax. (OK, a throwaway sentence tells than Synnax has...

    I love how that conflicts utterly with the idea that savages are just lazy bums who spend all day doing unproductive stuff and need to be whipped to make them do anything except sit round and eat. Surely if life...

    (The USSR only lasted for 70 years, which was not nearly long enough to get there. A better example of education/information plus generational change -- as an example of the practice, not saying the output is good or useful --...

    Reminds me of the arguments back during the Clinton administration when he proposed lifting the ban against allowing Gays to openly serve in the military. Some of the most vocal opponents among my acquaintances were female African American soldiers. Deja...
