  • Commented on Attention Conservation Notice
    Already? Well great, preordering right away. On the other hand, not reading no stinking extract. That is like eating one Lays potato chip....
  • Commented on Bad Writer Dad?
    My father was an electrical engineer, so I primarily interacted with my mother. I do recall being taken into my father's closet and shown the belts and shoes, which I found terrifying. I gather I had been spanked with them...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    "where the cops watch monitors all day and arrest everyone who commits any kind of crime whatsoever" In anything like a democracy this would result in rather rapid changes to the laws. Most of us are constant criminals, entirely dependent...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    Why farm plants at all? Why not just make synthetic nutrient substance in vats with chemistry? It takes some endothermic reactions, but surely those are more than 1 percent efficient....
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    Here's a good future timeline based on simple extrapolation: http://futuretimeline.net/ Some thoughts of my own... War: It seems so inefficient (never mind the waste of war generally) for each country to have it's own expensive high tech military. Somebody really...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    I'll just say that I was determined to hold out and wait for "Nightmare Stacks" in paperback, but I gave in and I'm glad I did because it came at just the right time and made my day. So, should...
  • Commented on PSA: The Delirium Brief
    It could be more subtle, like having vague intel about a planned attack but using it to deniably apply just enough influence to clusterfuck the response, making the outcome inevitable if not specifically predictable. You know, like 911. Not being...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    "In pursuit of efficiency we should just make everyone in the world speak and write in the same language." http://tholish.wixsite.com/jarrapua TATE RAPUA RAMUE SETA KEFU PURRAPUA. KEFU PURRAPUA MUTA KAME PURSUNREPAU. JARRAPUA NANNETEU MUTA MAKE PURSUNREPAU! Really though there's a...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    "Those of us who pay attention while driving are always looking for those who are not" That's why the key to both personal safety and low effort is to APPEAR to be an inattentive, intoxicated, or inexperienced driver while actually...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    Maybe the dwarves weren't always like that. After the fall of Numenor and Moria and all that maybe they gradually fell into a sort of collective depression and stopped breeding. So Tolkein's description is valid for the end of the...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    You say X punk needs to feel paper thin and like such a setting wouldn't actually work. That's because X punk isn't so much about an impossible setting as about an unstable one. A boulder can be unsupported in midair--for...
  • Commented on Random excuses
    "other stuff happened that's going to distract me from blogging for a while" Why not prewrite a bunch of blog entries for times like this? Because it would be silly and against the whole point of what a blog is,...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    As I understand it, most of the sex stuff in the Bible was an attempt to prevent pagan rituals that involved sex. The Canaanites were a settled people whose population had reached the carrying capacity of the land, so they...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Bannon isn't the only one fighting against incrementalism. Every time anyone demands the perfect ideal policy in any field immediately, without consideration of what things go together or can be realistically accomplished, the actual effect (and thus a prime suspect...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Yep, now that he's filed for re-election any non-profit is prohibited from attacking him on pain of losing non-profit status....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Carbon bubble popping? I mean, either oil remains plentiful and business keeps going as usual, or oil becomes more rare and the price goes up and business keeps going as usual. It won't pop, it will gradually deflate. Weak artificial...
  • Commented on Theme, Fiction, and Empire Games
    Finished Empire Games. I was going to point out the error on page 306 where Rita seems to be hooded and blinded mid page, then can see that the helicopter has a glass front by the bottom of the page,...
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    "if you pre-ordered this book, have you received any updates" UPS dropped my Amazon pre-ordered copy of Empire Games on my front porch at 10 am this morning (Jan 17th). Upstate NY. As for the Word thing' (1) If it's...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    "Would the Army respond to an unconstitutional order". They would find every way at every level to drag their heels and "accidentally" fail to execute commanded tasks. It wouldn't be hard to mask and make the whole thing palatable enough...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    I think repealing the 19th is way down the list. A lot of other things have to happen before that becomes feasible. There are plenty of easier and less obvious ways to make America a developing nation again....
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    We've been captured by the secret police in a police state. Let's just take some tea and breath deeply. We probably won't end up in a shallow grave, we'll only be beaten up and maybe have a few bones broken....
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    Porn is not a lens to view anything. It is by it's nature a distortion designed to affect the sex drive, which is already an illusion and a distraction from real things, like a wire straight into our brains that...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    That depends on what the Supreme Court says about the constitutionality of compelling the votes of electors. I would imagine Trump will appoint someone deeply interested in democracy, so that's not a road block....
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    Socialist is, as socialist wants to do. A social liberal (American "liberal") and a social democrat (American "progressive") may both agree on a specific policy for here and now, such as minimum wage, but they have different goals in mind....
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    What could happen is the Army could be sidelined and the dirty work could be done by paramilitary militias. Also, while it would be difficult to impossible to de-diversify the Army as a whole, someone with influence on the inside...

  • Commented on Empire Games sneak peek
    Asceticism is when nobles decide to live like peasants and make a big deal about it....
  • Commented on Eleven Tweets
    Kind of like what Emilio Estavez's character does in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wisdom_(film) except using a computer instead of an uzi....

    Re OP call for solutions to the eyeballs mess. Bot counterattack. New ap that lets you select sites, or types of sites, that you like or support. The ap constantly clicks on those sites whenever your device is inactive. Only...
