  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    It's a shame there aren't more interesting parties to vote for. In my last round of local elections I was two percent of the vote gathered by the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition candidate. Makes it all a bit more...
  • Commented on Sad Trombone Exoplanet Reality Check
    In my life, I have invented the following things: The bicycle. Networking cables. The holographic lens. VAT-grown human meat for public consumption. Sadly, I invented none of these things first....
  • Commented on Sad Trombone Exoplanet Reality Check
    Cannibalism is going to split out into the acceptable and unacceptable versions. I anticipate two distinct forms of the acceptable. Firstly, the middle-classes will be able to have meat cultured from their own DNA; at dinner parties, the hosts will...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    But were the electric time trousers about alternative presents, or were they just a time machine? If the latter, then it's just a coincidence of wording and what we're talking about here is what Hawking talked about, and not what...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Well that was fun. I found the ending to be particularly witty....
  • Commented on Three Unexpectedly Good Things VR Will Probably Cause
    "The RAIB has been unable to establish whether her personal music device or her smartphone were in use at the time of the accident, or whether she was wearing earphones"...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    While we're commenting on the Daily mail's editorial slant, they do have a disturbing set of dog-whistles for casting children as objects of sexual desire....
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    You're certainly right that the myths that Greeks work fewer hours and retire younger is pervasive and widespread. Don't know about the kicking idea....
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    Christ, get me taking myself so seriously. I do apologise. It just creates the impression that post authors are five years old, and the dissonance with what they're actually saying makes it hard to take them seriously; I want to...
  • Commented on The unavoidable discussion
    With apologies for the interruption, a public service announcement for the hipsters; http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/radio/specials/165_gramchallenge10/...
  • Commented on Rise Of The Trollbot
    Trollbots need to get my attention, and hold it, in order to change how I think. If they keep getting better and better at this, to the point that they exceed the abilities of human acquaintances to do this, I...
  • Commented on Towards a taxonomy of cliches in Space Opera
    Good for you. Not many people would own up to some of the nasty things over there. I suspect such comments would have been moderated out of existence here....
  • Commented on Towards a taxonomy of cliches in Space Opera
    Oh yeah? What's with those nasty posts you've been making over at zerohedge?...
  • Commented on Holding pattern (part N ...)
    It's all this kind of nonsense where you pretend you're some kind of space alien that undermines everything you ever say....
  • Commented on Holding pattern (part N ...)
    Oops. Didn't finish. Darn typing skills. That is actually monstrous, and cognitive dissonance alone doesn't produce that. We can see those who just have the cognitive dissonance; they refuse to believe the evidence of their senses and insist that everything...
  • Commented on Holding pattern (part N ...)
    I disagree. Also, it was hard to pick out from your words what you were talking about. I think you're saying that they're not monsters; they're just killing people rather than have to admit failure. To my mind, that is...
  • Commented on Holding pattern (part N ...)
    "There must be something in the exercise of power that transform people into monsters, there is no lack of examples : Mao, Unclo Ho, Pol Pot... They all started as revolutionnary idealist and ended real nasties" Each of those came...
  • Commented on Holding pattern (part N ...)
    The problem isn't a problem of putting things in. The problem is the incoherent junk "conversations" between two or three people taking up vast amounts of space....
  • Commented on Holding pattern (part N ...)
    Well, barring a couple of coherent staggered threads trying to survive, this descended into dullness awfully fast....
  • Commented on What Goes Around...
    I wasn't up to date on the Ghostbusters remake (is it a reboot or a sequel?), so I did a quick search. The article I read was nice enough, but the comments section; sweet Jesus, round about comment three it...
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    "You're supposed to not take it seriously." I think that's quite covered....
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    "Polite. Last. Warning." I generally ignore everything from this particular source, but that's the first thing that's come from it that made me actually laugh....
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    What *is* the thinking behind this, anyway? I could imagine a kind of evolutionary effect; the people who are rich and think that not spending all their wealth is a good idea are those most likely to have children who...
  • Commented on Silence this week ...
    Sadly, "items containing radioactive materials" are forbidden. I bet they could argue almost everything you could put in that box with your own hands violates that, the cunning devils :)...
  • Commented on The paranoid style in 2016
    "A "routine" US trip from Chicago to New Orleans is over 100km longer than the show-your-passport-at-least-twice trip from Paris to Warsaw..." I think that's a particualrly bad way to try to say what you're trying to say, given that you...
  • Commented on Excuses, excuses
    Was "Rapture of the Nerds" part of one of Charlie's ongoing series?...
  • Commented on Excuses, excuses
    Could you ever see yourself collaborating with another author on a book in one of your series? I'm genuinely interested, in the same sort of educational vein as your really interesting posts on the nature of the writing and publishing...
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    Now tell us that you're writing this by tapping it out on a telegraph machine. None of these devices are "essential". We could all live without them. We'd all simply be living much worse lives, except for those of us...
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    I'd start with the suggestion that if we don't replace them (by which I mean, all the people who used to live there get to move on in an organised fashion to something equal or better), it's collapse....
  • Commented on Long range forecast
    Don't forget the oven! And the water heater! Life would be a lot worse without the water heater. And the general house heaters. I think having no hot water and no way to make heat apart from setting fire to...
