  • 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...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    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"?...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    Hooray for spoilers!...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    The Doughnut is the home of GCHQ in the UK. It appears from time to time, as they are a sister agency who specialise in SIGINT and own lots of big computers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Doughnut...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    I'm calling it now as Tory propaganda. After reading about what The Mandate has in store you are supposed to start Thinking that JRM for PM and endless austerity aren't so bad......
  • Commented on Publishing: A Slice of Life
    That is outstanding by modern standards....
  • Commented on Publishing: A Slice of Life
    The joke there is that the idea of a piece of consumer electronics coming with a genuine instruction manual is ridiculous....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I hadn't seen that as I haven't really had time to watch TV for the last few years. A common werewolf trope does seem to be that they are generally reasonable people who aren't keen on trouble. Much more likeable...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    True. There might be mileage in lycanthropy as rare recessive trait that is more likely to appear in inbred populations. There are clear survival advantages under certain circumstances but likely to be fatal due to silver bullet ingestion. Minor survival...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Crofters on remote islands - werewolves the lot of em! :)...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    All a werewolf needs to do to keep itself hidden is maintain a well stocked freezer and lock itself in the cellar once a month. A smart werewolf would figure out a way to use its energy conservation violating transformation...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I think he's referring to the Masquerade trope....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I'm sure the laundry like to think that all those things are true. I suspect that they are in for a rude awakening....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I agree. Bob hasn't been eaten because soul eating is the destruction of information. He might be running as a subsystem of an interdimensional horror that happens to be connected to his meat head but he is still Bob....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    I take them as evidence that summoning is possible....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    I can report that a couple of years of latin at school is insufficient to trigger spontaneous summonings....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    At this point they are still messing around with avatars though. Avatars seem to mostly be constrained by physics so it is worth a pop.. When real Cthulhu or one of his mates turns up in person then I agree...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Technically we haven't been tested either but I can report that I have a 100% invincibility record so far....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    OGH has brought our attention to the fact that a certain person who is mentioned in the sample chapter may legally have access to such things. I would say that the Godzilla threshold has already been crossed so I expect...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    That's easy. Mainframes are nasty old 1970s tech, while the cloud is modern!...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    There was also "Inherit the earth" by Stephen Baxter in which an AI pope outlived humanity, hung around for a few million years until more sentient beings evolved and taught them all how to be good catholics. The finer details...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Feed em to the pigs Harold....
