  • Commented on Someone please cancel 2019 already?
    The main issue I have with the wealth tax concept is that the truly wealthy people won't have to pay it. Of course this applies to income tax and every other tax, and is a consequence of who gets to...
  • Commented on Crawling from the wreckage

  • Commented on What I published in 2018
    Almost as though the worlds game designers don't have an original idea between them and spend all their time mining popular culture for other peoples. Makes a change from zombies I suppose....
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    That's just an engineering problem, not a political one. Easy! '-)...
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    I believe that the main reason is that the EU frown on member governments spending unlimited amounts to subsidise unprofitable industries, and it's about time we stuck two fingers up at Thatcher and reopened all the coal mines....
  • Commented on Peak Brexit
    My view on thorium can be summarised as "Uranium already works. Let some other mug take the hit on the R&D". Having said that, a period when other fuels are used to generate enough U233 to make pure throrium breeders...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    2. How can you trust that your AI won't get caught in someone else's cloud? That ones easy. If it's running on someone elses hardware then it aint your AI. Question 3 is rendered moot by 2, and question 1...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Keep it in binocular range and treat the things it tramples to death as your dinner....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Activity of the day: Pick a news site at random, find their version of the Gallileo story and see how many comments you get through before you find someone demanding that we shoot down the entire constellation. I haven't looked...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    It never seems to occur to these people that mexicans might not have much sympathy for red chinese or islamic terroists....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    All eminently sensible, but I have to ask where one would go to obtain pre 1830 space mirrors....
  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    OTOH the ground here is always wet....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    The only things that will put it to bed are a brexit going horribly badly, or magically well. Either one essentially discredits one side, persuades the swing voters and forces everyone but the fanatics to stfu. "no brexit" or "survivable...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    The trick is to hire thugs from one area, bus them somewhere full of people they are predisposed to dislike and rely on their lack of imagination. Rarely fails. Properly arming said thugs ensures that things have to be really...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Food and medicine? Are you some sort of communist?...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    1. The Alien is not real. Many people who grew up in the 80s think this is uncool. 2. The UK has a large number of skilled biotech researchers who are almost certainly wondering where their future grants are coming...
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    May is very unlikely to be relying on the standard NHS/pharmacy supply chains if it comes to that. It really wouldn't be her problem....
  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    a) The number of Englandshirers who don't speak Korean! It's got to be easier than Glaswegian! '-)...
  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    My cynical side tells me that anyone who installs such a thing will be regarded as a paranoid eccentric by their friends. Furthermore the beast will *still* know what they are up to because said friends will still keep tagging...
  • Commented on What do you know about my inner demons?
    I think it refers to the news about Facebooks attempts to use anti semitic conspiracy theories to smear their critics. Specifically trying to link all their opponents to George Soros, the paranoid rights favourite jewish bogeyman. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/nov/14/facebook-george-soros-pr-firm-discredit-critics-crisis...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    An brain eaten by K syndrome isn't one worth sacrificing so I expect people would be for the chop at the first sign of symptoms. Either that or some sort of countermeasure would be put in place. I expect elder...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Not news. Everyone knows that Guy Fawkes was really trying to blow the Palace of Westminster because of a unicorn infestation in the cellars....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    (And the Laundry is part of the deep state. By implication, everybody in it is a collaborator with the naked fist of state power, whether or not it is applied inappropriately. You have reminded me of a friend who used...

    Complete with the obligatory commenter insisting that the US system is perfect....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I noticed the mention that Nyarlahotep was also active in North Korea and somewhere else (Australia?). If we are talking extra avatars with political ambitions then we have a brand new axis of evil :)...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I await the Jonquil POV novel. I feel that she is terribly misunderstood at the moment....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    And I thought they only measured constants and defined units. I had no idea NIST were godlike entities with reality warping powers!...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    That should release plenty of energy for an elder god to do whatever it is that they do with such things. A nice painless way for those of us made of mere matter to undergo a total existence failure as...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I just got to the "laser shotgun" video half way down the post... Very glad I don't live anywhere near that idiot....
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    On the move? So I can blind everyone on the train on the way to my employers first and final "take your laser to work day"?...
