  • Commented on Quiet in here, isn't it?
    I thought he was an American example of this thing of comedians inventing a persona and playing it so as to deliberately obfuscate the distinction between comedy and reality, like Ali G. Do I think tRump sincerely, passionately, believes...
  • Commented on Quiet in here, isn't it?
    I see intrigue and deviousness. I've found that over-explaining my attempts at humor makes them even funnier. Right?...
  • Commented on Quiet in here, isn't it?
    Googling Kyle or Kyle / Trump got me a US comedian. Is this correct, if not, no comprende .... Please do tell ..... Take your right arm, and hold it out straight and parallel to the ground. Then increase the...
  • Commented on Quiet in here, isn't it?
    Whereas Trump appears to be a machine for spouting ultra-rightwing semi-fascist dogwhistles Nothing 'semi-fascist' about announcing you would put all members of $RELIGIOUS_MINORITY under surveillance, force them to get special ID cards, and maybe move the more 'troublesome' members of...
  • Commented on Ia, Ia, Google Fthagn
    As interesting as the concept of "do what others won't" sounds, I think it is somewhat wandering away from the underlying tone in much of Lovecraft's stories - these alien, incomprehensible, frequently malignant entities are so far beyond us that...
  • Commented on They Took Our Myths
    I'm surprised to see an aspect to Lovecraft go unmentioned so far -he considered himself an antiquarian. Yes, he had an avid interest in biology and astronomy, but many times he was writing from the point of view of a...
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    My only interaction with the Hugos has been to occasionally check out the 'best of' short story compilations from the local library. I've never been to a convention, never been part of 'fandom', never even knew about the mechanics of...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Our Dear (and MOST generous) overlord: Any chance you might venture farther afield than the city that shares it's name with our fair province? There are even wonderful beverage options about 3 hours away from said metropolis......
  • Commented on Some thoughts on turning 50
    Many years ago I wanted "I'm masturbating while you read this" engraved on my tombstone....
  • Commented on Competition Redux!
    Reasonably certain it was the correct address. It looked correct... Just for giggles, I forwarded it to you again. Both attempts were with my Yahoo webmail account, I'll follow up with Thunderbird and a different account. Ah, technology again making...
  • Commented on Competition Redux!
    Email sent. Again, thanks!...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Though this is hardly a [d|D]emocracy, for my 3 pence: 51, 66, 73, 80, 117, 122, 143, 156, 162, 168, 184, 191, 220, 279, 291, 327, 378, 382, 395, 413, 419, & 427 Keep 'em coming! Thanks! Struggling to generate...
  • Commented on Competition Time!

    [REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED]. [REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED], [REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED][REDACTED]. This is your final formal warning. Bravo, sir, and well played. (slow clap)...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Strategically arranging Residual Human Resources on sidewalks so the Google Street View vehicle mounted cameras pass by and record "the world's largest lemon party" is unacceptable. Additionally, the Liaison Officer from the Black Chamber reports that Google has purged the...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    We understand that a career as a field officer is indeed stressful, and we fully support our staff developing hobbies and other positive, creative, stress-relieving activities as part of their home life. However, you should never post thinly disguised rewrites...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Employees are again reminded that using post-human resources to re-enact key scenes from "the Walking Dead" television series is both unprofessional and unacceptable. Additionally, the person responsible for the katana found in the commissary shall return it to weapons storage...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Excursions into alternate realities to retrieve Nazi memorabilia have been, are presently, and will continue to remain prohibited. NOTE: for the purposes of this policy, the term "Nazi memorabilia" is also interpreted to include actual Nazis....
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    [REDACTED] violated resource use policies when she created multiple fraudulent "personas" to subscribe and participate in the Arduino Developers mailing list, instead of performing her assigned work. Her code-in-progress would have allowed the low-cost, scalable, distributed, and easy manufacture of...
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Employee was found partially clothed and NOT in a state fit for work, on the floor of a lavatory, with the Voynich manuscript and a half-empty bottle of KY jelly....

    BRITISH SECRET SERVICE DIVISION SPECIAL OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE Q BRANCH V [REDACTED] 1. On 19 May 2014 the Disciplinary Committee considered the following charge against the Respondent: That, assigned to the Bureau of Information Services and whilst in practice at the...
  • Commented on Crass commercial interlude
    In the Post-war years I think the hotel would consider itself patriotic enough that being anti-semitic and anti-Nazi wouldn't be contradictory. Not contradictory at all! The Jerrys were the bad guys we went to war against, and the Jews were...
  • Commented on "Write me something fresh and new, but make it just like the last one"
    Any crumbs for those of us holding out for a certain barking mad deiselpunk exercise in unsaleable wordsmithing? Also, Paul Cornell's _London Falling_ was a very good take on urban fantasy, where the heroes are very definitely blindly stumbling around...
  • Commented on Heartbleed note
    The saddest thing about working in the computer industry is nothing ever seems to be learnt. Not only that, the next iteration of the unlearned lesson involves virtualization and heaps of XML....
  • Commented on Heartbleed note
    Ssh! Maybe that too - I can't remember if that uses openssl. (sorry, couldn't resist a cheap pun...)...
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    It does, however, suggest to me that the savvy Al Qaida conspirators[yes, I know this is a contradiction in terms] of the next decade will hold their covert meetings in the nude, on Yahoo! video chat, while furiously masturbating. ....
  • Commented on Miscellanea
    As someone with a public sector IT career, I happily pilfered the phrase "public-private prolapse" from one of your recent books. I also suspect the current large-scale PeopleSoft implementation clanking along at where I work is also evidence of Elder...
  • Commented on Baboon Fart Odyssey
    If by "wank" you mean the heap of mindlessly pro-bitcoin comments from last month's thread, I'm all for it. Careful, though - you might end up with a gristle clog in the ham juicer....
