  • Commented on World Cup: engage Grinch mode now!
    I believe the current score is riot police 5 people 0. BBC4 ans Radio 4 extra have been good refuges so far....
  • Commented on Vacation
    Speaking of the NHS 5 minutes after typing the diabetes comment/question I dived head first down 13 stairs, was removed to casualty, where they decided I needed my spleen out. Which they took. I then hemorrhaged, and lost 5 liters...
  • Commented on Vacation
    see see diabetes above above. Type 1 or 2? I was diagnosed with type 2 about 15 years ago. Last year apparently not. Mind you giving up smoking & loosing 5 stone, and having a stroke probably helped. God the...
  • Commented on The Snowden leaks; a meta-narrative
    Speaking of which, why are some HLL better than others? Why is C generally thought to compile to better code than Pascal or Algol? Is this because humans are crap at compiler writing, or what? Ah, for the days of...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    alternate history novel Which alternate history do you think? On alternate history I tend to agree with Science of discWorld 4. The battle was not lost because of a nail......
  • Commented on Generation Z
    REAL Technician - that is to say not a Woman Odd. I work for more or less the BBC in a fairly technical capacity. There are 3 other men in my team. I have rarely heard a criticism expressed on...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    The energy side of the equation is just too bad. Bloody nature of the universe... Still maybe the theoreticians at the LHC or elsewhere could be persuaded to devise a means of suppressing inertia. Lots of new discoveries lately, not...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Would change this to 'perceived control': the gizmo does what you expect it to do. Most users/consumers strongly prefer not having to understand how something/anything works. (Think Mac vs. PC.) This is why Magick is popular, and why apparently intelligent...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    There is free movement of people ... as long as they're attached to a large chunk of capital. Sure, but about 30 years ago I could live like a king in Kenya on 16k GBP a year. Presumably these days...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Hmm, speaking of nation states; why not we get rid of all these restrictions on humans and their movements too? These poxy passports and the right to be somewhere are just annoying actually. Tend to agree. If there's free movement...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    a universal basic income I thought that was RAH with Common Basic Stock. Not a bad idea though. Personally ( ghhq & nsa aside) I'd abolish income tax, cash, & impose a Tobin on all purchases. Which is probable why...
  • Commented on I'm back
    I Look forward to a «lizard people» detector. AND A SUSPICTIONS CONFIRMED notifier....
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    47°9′S 126°43 47°9′S 126°43′W ?...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    That may be the ultimate story: a horror that makes no sense. In my experience life is, sometimes, there is nothing you can do to relieve the pain and suffering you see, except be there, and sometimes not even that....
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    And apparently Ernst Stavro Blofeld's, biggest gripe is that Sir James Goldsmith got an knighthood, but all he got was James Bond and the sharp end of a license to kill. That said I suspect the Catnda is the brains...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    If it a hijack, about time we had competent a "terrorist" group that doesn't depend on the incompetence of the authorities, SPECTRE anyone?...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    o me this is looking more and more like an Insurance scam gone wrong. If it is insurance, I'd suggest Boeing more than "MAS" as in the Ford Pinto case. If the 777 was as the top of its ceiling,...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    Foteana Theory: A passenger turned on their laptop and it said "Bluetooth device detected - Boeing 777 Install (Y/N)" with the not unusual results if the Boeing was the wrong version. That said, is there a putative Hijacker motivation theory...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    why should violence cause depression? Not in my experience. It's -frightening- and unpleasant, but not particularly depressing. I imagine that if you're in a unpredictably violent relationship and see no way out, knowing the violence will continue, you'd become depressed....
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    Fortenea theory: Bob howard was on the plane, which landed on the plateau....
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    I hope so, but: insufficient data [ ...] I hope so too. Not that I have a Goth fetish or anything... Anyway, letter in the London Evening Standard today, mentioned James Jesus Angleton, who the writer claimed wasn't entirely mad....
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    If you turn out to be right, Charlie, it qualifies as a miracle as explained by Pratchett (Small Gods), and you in the Fuller Memorandum, speaking of which will that be coming out in UK Audible?...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    If you turn out to be right, Charlie, it qualifies as a miracle as explained by Pratchett: “Whatever happens, they say afterwards, it must have been Fate. People are always a little confused about this, as they are in the...
  • Commented on Circumstantial connections
    I'm surprised it wasn't aliens. After all they did supply the Nazi tech. Mind you aliens are allergic to camera phones, hence the decrease in sightings since they became popular. Same as ghosts....
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    You may have noticed that a lot of UK legislation is very widely drawn but that (we are told) it will be applied reasonably....
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    speaking of which, I'd like to quote Richard Morgan in the person of Quellcrist Falconer in iThings I Should Have Learned by Now, Volume II “The personal, as everyone’s so fucking fond of saying, is political. So if some idiot...
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    Another idea to overwhelm them The trad way to solve protest is to make a few high-profile examples. Fancy loosing everything, for a point of principle? Honestly speaking, I don't, unless it's a matter of survival. So yes, I'm cowed,...
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    I was just wondering just what depth of melanin in the skin qualifies as "flesh"-tones. Interesting question. Most links in Google to "identify flesh tones" lead to cosmetic advice, and "identify flesh tones in photograph" leads to Photoshop advice (...
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    As a lawyer, you might care to look up what consttitutes "making" an obscene image (in the UK at least)....
  • Commented on Rule 34, meet Kafka
    yes, here we go Paul Clarke, 27, was found guilty of possessing a firearm at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday – after finding the gun and handing it personally to police officers on March 20 this year.
