    Uniqlo has the best scan, pay and go of anywhere, with all the right checks to make sure one is paying for what one is purchasing only. The only drawback is the awkwardness then of bagging one's own purchases, whether...

  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    Regarding the Constitution and a Constitution Convention -- Washington believed Constitution was unlikely to endure 20 years. It would all have be done again, then. There were too many errors in it that didn't address the divisions in the territories...

    @963 -- Hmmm -- when I read it my take away was that Tesla's numbers were the lowest of crashes, events, etc. that have happened in the few months, really, that anyone has even begun to track such things. So...
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    @988 -- I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking of where I grew up, which wasn't suburbia, but the true rural heartland, farming country. Men drove tractors or trucks or pick-ups to their fields, etc. and moms kept the...

    Greg Tingly @768 -- maybe it's just the title that's misunderstood -- at least here in the USA, 'chum' is gross guts and yuck used to attract certain kinds of fish. Ha! Which certainly describes that pack of chums....

  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    BTW, Hetroetc. -- Santería is not a 'case' interesting or otherwise. It is a religion. That kind of comment again underlines that anything out of Africa is utterly dismissed as 'real' because 'below' Eurasian spiritual developments. Ignored all together most...

    @727 You will not be a target audience then for our film, Tierra Sagrada. All sacred drumming, and singing, nearly two hours worth. No talking, not even subtitles -- maybe about 30 words all together....

  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Concerning the discussion currently around the positivity or negativity of holding religious beliefs: For me personally the only religions I've encountered that make sense are the Afro / Caribbean ones, particularly those accreted around origin Lucumi of Nigeria's Yoruba centering...

    Perhaps it appears the monarchy itself has resolved the question of dissolution and substitution for this archaic English (as, others that might be involved say, Ireland, Wales and Scotland, may have other thoughts on the ancient status of the English...
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    The pretext of reviewing Tina Brown's The Palace Papers, allows the London Review of Books to do a take-down of the Windsors specifically, and the monarchy generally, with the cuttingist damning via language w/o ever once resorting to obscenity or...

  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    I came here to post that WaPo article as well, since there was speculation earlier about racism being part of this tragic catastrophe. I'd been wondering myself that surely there must have been some impact from some angle re the...
