  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Goodness, you're awfully angry. The future will be what the future will be. Maybe the Singularitans are right. I doubt it, but it's possible. Maybe the Transhumanists are right. They're probably not in every particular, but I can see Transhumanism...
  • Commented on Inverted realities
    Obviously Vampires would not be sexy if they existed. Hell, if even the Sexy Vampires existed we would be forced on a species level to exterminate them. (They sicken and kill people. The only reason that doesn't dominate the fiction...
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    Won't work. The reason the right wing is always Hijacking center/left stuff is that the right wing tends to be very insular already. They're dying off, and like vampires have to constantly latch on to other groups and infect them...
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    Hello Mr. Stross. I am wondering...do you think there will be any degree of fighting in the event of a secession vote being successful? I'm asking cause I'm an Murcan, and last time someone tried to secede from us, we...
  • Commented on The permanent revolution
    The problem with worrying about the collapse of the American state is that now every dimwit has nuclear weapons. In 378AD if empire fell, cities would burn and the population would shrink, worldwide trade would collapse and there would be...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    I am an American. Like many Americans I don't know much, but that doesn't keep me from expressing my opinion. Loudly. In English. ^.^ Anyway...You would obviously know better than I would, but do you really think it's likely that...
  • Commented on Political failure modes and the beige dictatorship
    The biggest problem I have with revolution is that guys like me almost always end up getting shot. Original point: Government is like air. If it's being done right, you shouldn't notice it much at all. People don't get pissed...
  • Commented on Press release
    This is going to make me sound really dumb, but I don't learn stuff if I don't ask. "Milli hamilton"? ...which Hamilton are we talking about?...
  • Commented on The Anthropic Stupidity Hypothesis
    If by smart you mean 'capable of inventing new tools' maybe. But I suspect that 99% of our intellect comes down to the social realm. Our intellect is a side effect of our social nature, a sort of intellectual/social arms...
  • Commented on The Anthropic Stupidity Hypothesis
    ...So...elves?...
  • Commented on Unbreakable (part2)
    I am not meaning to imply that evolution is 'designing' anything. If I gave off that impression it was unintentional. But bigger muscles, more potent chemicals, claws, teeth and behaviors all require energy..and beings which use energy for no...
  • Commented on Unbreakable (part2)
    Genetics. Our breeding strategy includes a component of violence. We were 'designed' to fight (other animals, other males...women who argued with us) and the survivors passed their genes along. Evolution is a bitch. ^.^...
  • Commented on Women in SF and Fantasy
    ...If you want to write a P.O.V. female character in a fantasy setting nothing stops you from doing that. I always liked the Exalted setting, especially one aside where they went "The real past sucked for women. But you can...
  • Commented on Unbreakable (part2)
    I suspect that women trend towards being less violent because violence isn't something that women are generally good at. Your average male is six inches and fifty pounds heavier than your average female. Women notice this. Nobody starts a fight...
  • Commented on Customer Satisfaction Survey
    Destination Girl: Grats on non homelessness! ...I'm new to this place, am I supposed to say that kind of thing?...
  • Commented on Customer Satisfaction Survey
    My 2012 experience was, as always superb. Fortunately for me, I chose the "White Western Male Heterosexual" version several decades ago. This model is famous for it's lack of bugs and I am as always grateful for getting to avoid...
