  • Commented on The Northern Wild: How to Save New York?
    Re: Cities, here's a relevant recent article on IO9: http://io9.com/this-incredible-statistic-shows-why-cities-are-the-futu-511461618 To Guthrie @#21: What's the current energy technology that releases the least CO2? Fission power! Let's start cranking those bad boys out again. Closely related, there's Bill Gates' traveling wave...
  • Commented on The Northern Wild: How to Save New York?
    OK, I had no idea what "Spindizzies" referenced. On a totally off-topic issue, can anyone tell me what setting I need to change in Google+ so that my name shows when I log in? I don't make the technology, I...
  • Commented on The Northern Wild: How to Save New York?
    Or (being science fictional here) we could take the "Stargate Atlantis" approach and turn Manhattan into a spaceship!...
  • Commented on The Northern Wild: How to Save New York?
    Take the "Escape from New York" idea, build a big friggin' wall around Manhattan and let the rest of the boroughs go hang (that's what they do now, isn't it?). You could still move Broadway, off-Broadway, the Met, the Guggenheim,...
  • Commented on The last refuge of scoundrels
    Now, now. What two consenting adults do in their own home is none of our business. /snark...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    A recent Washington Post article (http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2013-03-14/local/37693051_1_population-growth-job-market-metro-area) pegged the DC area population at 5.8 million. The difficulty in defining the population is where you draw the boundary for Washington. The District of Coumbia, also the city of Washington, is a relatively...
  • Commented on The permanent revolution
    I purposely kept this response simple so that I was certain I wasn't saying things I shouldn't. With over 30 years in the US Department of Defense, both in and out of uniform, I try to be careful what I...
  • Commented on The permanent revolution
    I'm afraid your comment shows little understanding of how nuclear weapons are controlled in the US and the general threat to the world of nuclear weapons. "The military" does not decide when or how to use nukes; the National Command...
  • Commented on The permanent revolution
    Daniel, I'm afraid your analogy falls apart between D. and F. If the United States ever held the equivalent position of Rome, it was at the very end of WWII, ending with the Soviet fission test in 1949. US power...
  • Commented on The jet lag game
    And a p.s. - I loved the show "Alias", partly out of the sheer implausibility of it, but the one thing that put me off was them flying halfway round the world and stepping off the plane fresh as a...
  • Commented on The jet lag game
    This entry hits the nail on the head on so many levels. As a Yank living in Germany, I've had to make a number of trips back to the States, and I've really come to dread the flight back. Most...
