  • Commented on Excuses
    I can't believe that BoJo is being seriously considered to become PM. The man can't even take three steps without shoving his foot into his mouth....
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    The Rah-rah empire attitude is effectively dead in Australia thanks to Tony Abbott's bungling. Giving a knighthood to Prince Phillip? Really, Tony? The UK is our 7th highest trade partner, those highest than that all sit on the Pacific. So...
  • Commented on The Day After
    This is the first time I have felt sick watching an election coverage. Now I'm wondering if a civilization can engineer it's own outside context problem....
  • Commented on Facts of Life and Death
    It'll probably be in the EU's interest to bargain as hard as they can in order to discourage other members to split....
  • Commented on We'll all go together when we go
    What if the stresses of Global warming cause several small nuclear wars. Which in turn hampers our ability to combat and adapt to global warming and the ecosystem collapses....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    Not sure if this has already been posted, but it makes interesting reading. I wonder if Remain Tories are sharpening their knives in anticipation of BoTrump....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Even though I live on the other side of the world, this Brexit vote has me depressed. A great victory for racists, no doubt. Until the economy tanks and they'll have to look for another scapegoat....
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    As an Australian I see the Britexit as being driven by underlying neuroses that the sun will never set on the British empire, and that some pinko commie Eurocrat will force dogs to live with cats. Rather than it being...
  • Commented on Deploying the monomyth in Space Opera
    I always thought of doing a space opera based on King Lear and the Sengoku period. And then fire up the George R R Martin plugin by killing off all of the main characters by the third book....
  • Commented on Fantasy shibboleths
    Rabbit snack packs. Leaving aside the problem of rabbit starvation, hunting wild rabbits isn't a easy as firing a bow into a bush, seeing as rabbits really dislike being turned into a meal....
  • Commented on Message for GISHWHES participants
    What, vaguely, are they asking for? I hope it's nothing too demanding, but I know in my heart of hearts it is. p.s. Please answer this whenever you feel like Charlie. You're not my INTERNET bitch....
  • Commented on Schroedinger's Kingdom: the Scottish Political Singularity Explained
    The UKIP strikes me as the sort of party that'd campaign on the promise to allow you to beat your lessers. I can see why they wouldn't want Scottish independence, because that would mean the sun had truly set on...
  • Commented on Some news about the Hugo voters packet
    Fair enough....
  • Commented on Schadenfreude
    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. *breathes* HA HA HA HA HA HA Cue the horde of angry libertarians defending their dream of a currency free of ebil government. BTW Charlie, what's your take on goldbugs? They seem...
  • Commented on On Syria
    In other news, two Russian warship, and a submarine have been redeployed to the Mediterranean. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/29/us-syria-crisis-russia-navy-idUSBRE97S0AK20130829...
  • Commented on Lies, damned lies, and popular beliefs
    Hey Charlie, maybe you should do a post on the policies of the ruling party. For my mind they seemed to be based on the Chicago, and Austrian school of economics. They seem intent on destroying/weakening unions to the point...
  • Commented on Dragged kicking and screaming into the 19th century
    I don't see them changing. You've got a bunch of men, handpicked by the previous pope, who are the ones that will be choosing the next pope. They were all chosen because they towed the party line. Plus Africa and...
  • Commented on What are the big issues of 2013 going to be?
    Conservative politicians in India introduce 'modesty' legislation in order to combat rape. Riots, gang rapes, and back tracking ensue. The labor party in Australia stuns all by winning a narrow majority over the coalition. Tony Abbott tries to avert the...
