  • Commented on Empire Games
    'cause inventory gets delivered during the day Monday, sorted Monday night, and put out on the shelves before opening on Tuesday....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    It's very exciting, and I liked Rita a lot. (And her grandfather more.) I couldn't finish the last MP book, because the amount of evil by the US was too close to reality and made me very upset, so I...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    TO do so, you require a laser aperture approximately the size of the solar system. James Nicoll to the white courtesy phone, please......
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    The Interstate Compact does not require Congress' permission -- it is up to the states to decide how to allocate their electoral votes. And a Constitutional Amendment does not require Congress' approval, and isn't that much harder than doing it...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    My only response to you: balderdash, and easily provable. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_v._White for example....
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    No state can secede. There is no allowance for it in the Constitution (which does describe how new states are accepted, and how states can be split into multiple states, and deliberately omits departure), and it was established -- fairly...
  • Commented on Empire Games sneak peek
    Yes, they use less water: to get hot water out of the tap, you don't have to run water and wait. (I am specifically thinking of the small heaters that go near the taps in question -- right by the...
  • Commented on Empire Games sneak peek
    blink Tankless heaters really are a big thing. They're desired in places where it gets really cold because you can get hot water instantly, and they're desired in California because they use less water....
  • Commented on Eleven Tweets
    The deductions were intentional -- the explicit goal was to get money spent (either by buying things, investing in companies, charitable donations, etc.). Taxing capital gains (and dividends) at a low rate certainly helps me personally, but it encourages horrible...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Iris' ritual attempted to summon the Eater of Souls into Bob's body, but the Eater of Souls was already ensconced in Angleton's body, so a portion was summoned into Bob's body, along with his own soul (due to Iris not...
  • Commented on A reminder
    I had the same thought a couple of days ago. shudder...
  • Commented on A reminder
    My Z4 with manual will handle shifting gears properly, with no need to resume the cruise control. (If the clutch is pressed for more than a second or so, it starts chiming a warning.)...
  • Commented on Just plain icky
    I've found that extra-wide "running" shoes work pretty well for me for walking. (I normally don't wear shoes, so my feet are extremely wide by now. I took my wife to Disney World for our anniversary, and bought some New...
  • Commented on Ever Young?
    Someone says otherwise. Huffington, so I of course take it with a grain of salt. Note that I strongly approve of the idea even if the results have been inflated -- to me, that says it should be expanded. [[...
  • Commented on Ever Young?
    Yes, Niven, A World Out of Time....
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    Is that a UK thing? Here in California LED bulbs are actively pushed by the governments and power companies. (I suspect my Philips Hue bulbs' ZigBee circuitry will die before the bulb itself would, which is a clever way to...
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    I think you have managed to confuse, or ignore, cause and effect. The current and future plight is why so many people have been upset at the UK gov'ts coddling and encouraging of the financial industries to the detriment of...
  • Commented on What else can you do with a Big Dumb Booster?
    I don't think you have a proper understanding of California's size, geography, and climates. The top half of the state is pretty moist, for example, and sequoias require a lot of water. And they've been around for a long, long...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    I have good news then: Max Gladstone's fifth Craft Series book is out. Start with Three Parts Dead and go from there....
  • Commented on The iron law of development
    "What do you call a battery with 50% more power? A bomb." -- actual battery engineer, who clarified that this statement is always true at any given point in time. (LiIon battery density is improving at about 10% per year,...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Sighing heavily, Dr Roadster regretfully decided to go with the Model S noose instead of the larger Model X, as it was still charging via the Powerwall. That is the Tesla you meant, right?...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    As usual, I'm "currently" reading about a half dozen books -- I switch to another one when they get boring, go back when the alternate is boring or I finish it. Or sometimes I switch a new book because I'm...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    which ends in 2015 Well, that's depressing....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    It's an inciteful comment. Please no more along those lines, 'kay?...
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    It is sexist badmouthing, and demonstrably false in multiple ways. (Mayer was not a bad executive, and Google -- like everyone else -- hasn't care about Yahoo in many years.)...
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    That is a depressingly-accurate description of several companies with which I am personally familiar. (Some startups, two ... not.) I'm going to say (3) is inverted, however: the current job of HR is to both manage staffing and payroll, but...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Don't....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Because Charlie said it was. Go read his comment/warning. And his original post answered your other question as well....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Read Charlie's description again, and comment #2....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Personal attacks are not permitted. Nyx Ninoy: you are repeatedly going off-topic....
