    "probably" was meant to have a strikethrough. *mutters about HTML* [[ the code you wanted was <s>]]...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    Definitely enjoyed the book! I wasn't too surprised by Angleton's "death" after the foreshadowing in Fuller Memorandum, but still had an impact. I won't be surprised if it's part of a larger plan, as others have suggested. The misdirection about...

    Happy release! Hope it sells well. Enjoy your time here in Florida?...
  • Commented on Vacation
    (n+2)'ing KSC, of course. I can also attest that Bok Tower is a very pretty place, and if you're into Lego at all, Legoland is worth a visit. The beaches in the Tampa Bay area are pretty uniformly gorgeous, though...

    Florida kind of counts - the Panhandle and northern Florida are part of the Bible Belt, culturally speaking; south of Orlando or so, it's somewhat more sane....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Apocalypse Codex
    I was just reading about those earlier today; I was rereading Apocalypse Codex to see what I wanted to ask about, noticed the description of the tongue parasites as "cymothoan", looked that word up...and now I have one more entry...

    Very interesting, and thanks for the answers! (I am entirely fine with you not using your darkest ideas; that hospital ward was deeply terrifying as it is)...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Apocalypse Codex
    You definitely nailed the creepiness and horror with the evangelicals; it really worked well for this book, enough so that it doesn't feel much lighter than The Fuller Memorandum. A few questions: How does Persephone resurrect Johnny with rather few...

    Just simple thuggery, then. Thanks!...

    Snowball's Chance - what was up with the last couple of paragraphs, after the "Devil" gave Davy a credit and went off to sort out the mess? It seems like Davy was running some sort of con or deeper plot,...
  • Commented on Crib sheet: Accelerando
    As far as Accelerando... Well, I read it as a teenager, and focused much more more on the techno-optimist part...youthful innocence (also called immaturity) is like that. It still holds up as a great novel, though. The little interludes describing...

    You're thinking of South Korea; see http://www.nature.com/news/south-korea-makes-billion-dollar-bet-on-fusion-power-1.12251...
  • Commented on Roko's Basilisk wants YOU
    I'm only passingly familiar with Less Wrong; didn't realize quite it had this level of woo/craziness. Are there any (possibly transhumanist) major schools of thought about generally improving quality of life via technological/biological enhancement that don't also believe in singularitarian...
