  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    Summary: 1. Fancy-pants electric cars of the Tesla require equally fancy lithium batteries. 2. Said batteries need cobalt. . . and this is where it gets tricky. 3. A major source of world cobalt is the Democratic Republic of Congo,...

    "P.S. If Musk was a woman, he would be the super hot genius female scientist that Bond saves from the bad guys and has sex with after killing about a dozen villains." I see you've given this matter some thought....
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    I hate to break it to you, Charlie, but the bright shiny object that is Musk's Tesla is a snare and a delusion. It may make a few yuppies feel like they're saving the planet, and it may have some...
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    Canadian readers may care to speculate on the true identity of Mr. J, a seemingly positive character who looks more and more negative the closer you look at his record (though he's still better than his predecessor Mr. H). French...
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    The sort of infrastructure we'll need in this century and the next should centre around A)Carbon capture and sequestration, B) Algae-based biofuels, and C) Perhaps a soletta, so that a grateful humanity can singing a rousing chorus or two of...
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    Sounds like you need to get better friends!...
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    Yeah, this is why Z reminds me of L. Ron Hubbard, and Thiel could be fitted for that suit too. As this very blog has shown over the years, the idea of interplanetary colonization is essentially silly, and Z is...
  • Commented on Paging Agent 007
    I am deeply sceptical about all the stuff concerning Mr. T being a catspaw of Mr. X. The latter, whatever he may be, is no fool, and only a fool would hire T for anything. So how did T reach...
  • Commented on Report on Seat 14C
    Well, that escalated quickly....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    OK. This is the final thing I will say on this subject. You're implying that the first splits in the IRA which led to the emergence of the dissident groups did not occur until the time of the Good Friday...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    In other words, the real picture is considerably different from that implied in your original post, and particularly in your use of the phrase "plausible deniability". (Why TF am I doing this?)...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Ethnic cleansing in the 26 counties after 1922? My family are Catholic, but my mum comes from the one bit of the republic where there was a Protestant majority in 1922. And that area still has a Protestant majority today...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    "But you have misread me. I agree that the IRA, as the paramilitary organisation, WAS disbanded, at least except for the plausibly deniable "dissidents"." Are you implying that the dissidents were a 'false flag' all along? I've never heard anyone...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    The collapse of the Ulster Unionist Party involved, among other things, the defection of many of its rising leaders to the Democratic Unionist Party. So the rise of the two-colour map isn't as striking as it might look....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    Continuity IRA - or at least a faction thereof - announced a permanent cessation of armed activities a few days ago. All the dissident groups appear to be massively penetrated by state intelligence, also. http://www.limerickleader.ie/news/home/254012/continuity-ira-indicates-it-is-to-end-its-armed-campaign.html...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    You missed out the fact that the first feelers towards talks between Westminster and the Army council started in 1987, during your "gloves are off" phase....
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    Remember the old line "the future is already here, it's just unevenly distributed"? Well my guess is that it will stay like that. That at least is one lesson I drew from Thomas Hylland Eriksen's excellent book from last year,...
  • Commented on Placeholder? Placeholder!
    Regarding non-PIRA terror in the UK, it might be useful to note the helping hand the UK state itself provided for that sort of thing (try that in the local accent, hi). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Banner#Collusion_with_loyalist_paramilitaries...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    "back in the 1970s when the climate scientists thought we were headed for a new Ice Age" This isn't true. https://arstechnica.com/science/2016/06/that-70s-myth-did-climate-science-really-call-for-a-coming-ice-age/...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    "The scale is so large that gas chambers and death camps won't work: instead, they're thinking in terms of building walls around entire subcontinents, policed by killer drones, and letting heat emergencies and starvation do the job, sort of like...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Spare us your political gaslighting. For as long as I can remember, the sphere of social democracy (not the same thing as liberal democracy, or should I say 'democracy') has been under constant assault, and has been constantly shrinking. As...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Not exactly Greg. A slogan of crypto-fash like Charles Lindbergh, it was common throughout the 1930s in America, but didn't become the name of an organization until 1940. https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2017/01/20/president-trumps-america-first-slogan-was-popularized-by-nazi-sympathizers/ And you know what, you and I don't get on, but...

    I think our friend from Special Circumstances may be confusing Mr. Douglas with Mr. Charlton Heston....

    I'd say Heinlein would have been a keen Trump man, had he lived to see this....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    I'm eternally grateful to Dr. Soros for funding a teaching post I once had at an early stage of my career. Seeing the operation sort-of from the inside makes me laugh even harder at the trash who think he's a...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    My guess is Andorra. Or San Marino, maybe. Charlie - your fear of a global Operation Condor may yet come true, but back in the 1930s there was an attempt to set up a "Fascist International". It came to nothing....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    The Nazis were also the second regime - after the Italian fascists - to engage in large-scale privatisation of state-owned enterprises. So much for the "socialist" Nazis. If this seems an improbable claim to you, google Germa Bel, who has...
  • Commented on Just plain icky
    Is your mother proud of you? Your link refers to one observed case of an outbreak of Ebola in an Ivory Coast chimpanzee band, with the subsequent infection of the single human ethologist who studied that outbreak. That is not...
