    What really drives me nuts about these, what shall I call them, ethnic? cultural? groups that want freedom and their own nation... is how many of them do not have the resources to survive on their own in the modern...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Logical fallacies - I usually point folks to the argument.FAQ from usenet....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Um, not all. Depends on the schools, and, IMO, esp. on the school administration's attitudes, more than the individual instructors. I've been, and my kids have been in both kinds, though this is US experience. And how would *you* have...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Please. Breitbart (or, as I prefer, Dim-bart) is Bannon's (formerly of the White House) media, so is 500% extremist right-wing and all-wrong opinion, crackpotism, etc....

    a) Remember, this is in Child, ballad 32, which makes it hundreds of years old. b) Ever read Sir Gawain and the Green Knight? The moral is, of course, the answer to the question, "what does a woman want". So...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    The polite, legal introduction of the nobility (aka big money) to the humane invention of Msr. Guillotine. Aka, to quote the Red Queen, OFF WITH THEIR HEADS! Now, as someone suggested on another blog, I should probably look into a...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Don't get me started, either. I've seen utter crap with javascript, and even more crap... that can be done in html 1.1, with *nothing* else. At that point, I reiterate the basis of science: entities should not be multiplied without...

    I'm in the RH-child world, with CentOS. I like this, because it's #1 criteria is "enterprise grade", and it's *stable*. Note, if you're in these distros, there are also the epel, rpmfusion, and (last resort) elrepo repositories. Absolutely *not* the...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    No, no, no, they're not interested in real slavery, because then you have capital tied up in a) buying the slave, b) feeding, clothing, and housing the slave, and perhaps medical care, because d) you otherwise have depreciated them to...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I hear King Henry, and I think of the song that Steeleye Span did in one of their early albums, about how a King Henry got a wife.... "Let never a man a-wooding wend Without thinges three A store...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    *sigh* No. The instructions on a projects web page, at least in the *Nix world, mostly assume you're installing from a tarball. A word to the wise: DON'T. SOME projects will have, in their install info, how to install to...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    As of the last five or so years, there is exactly *one* other person using whitroth on the entire 'Net. With her, if's the beginning of her first name, and we share the same last name. I got it from...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    That's... insane. They don't *know* what shift they're working, weeks in advance? Is management *that* incompetent? And 24x7? Given what you're describing, should we assume that they are NEVER not on call, and so indistinguishable from an indentured servant?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    #insert "nose-in-air.h" I meant Real model railroading. For example, google Rod Stewart model railroad....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    The right-wing bias, yes. And no, they are not just a hate group, they're a terrorist organization; they were created as such, and continue to be. I've had a couple folks over the years try to claim they were a...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    If you're running firefox, install the NoScrit plugin. There are pages, like this one, that I permanently say are ok, but a lot of web pages, I'll only temporarily enable some linked-in sites, and I *never* enable google-analytics. Youtube won't...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Um, wikipedia says that statism is a political theory that the state should control economic or political affairs. Right. That's *so* clear, and has so many threads that go on to what I was suggesting, that I'm not touching that....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Re 3, about the Jewish lobbying groups: the big ones are PRO-ISRAEL (yeah, right), there's also J Street, which are pro-Isreal... but NOT pro-Netanyahu/rught-wing crazies/Eretz Israel types* The latter are certainly NOT pro-Trumponi * Eretz Israel are crazies who want...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    See Charlie's reply in 308. And as much as I find Frank to be a decent guy, he's still holding the RC to no birth control (other than rhythm) and no abortion. As as for the US funnymentalists, they'll turn...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    A tad different than usual for me - I normally start reading the cmts where I left off the day before, get to current, write down posts I want to respond to, then start from that. However, this is closer...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    All of which I find aggravating, Charlie, given that an ultraOrthodox Hassidic rabbi told me, over 20 years ago, that Jews had no problem with abortions (I'd asked), and quoted something from the OT, where a pregnant woman is hurt?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Say, like The Ballad of Lost C'Mell, by Cordwainer Smith?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    BLEAH! My condolences on such a Big Brotheresque "culture". If I had to work there, and had to go out, I'd ask for a separate check. And there's no *reason* for that, since for a few years now, you all...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Oh, right, y'know, it's really scratchy in my clothes when you stuff all that straw in. 1. Where did I imply it WOULD DESTROY CIVILIZATION? Rather, it's interfering with education, and I want better, not "education suitable only for Trump...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Yeah... and I think you're missing the still bigger picture. You're following your kids all the time, The neighborhood is checking on you regularly. You're on call, 24x7. Think about that. I've read estimates that Ceaușescu had something approaching 50%...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    You're seeing, and missing my point. If you are a Big Name Plotter, they're all over you. If, on the other hand, you and a friend or two are utterly appalled by what's happening, and start plotting, and set up...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Well, yes there are ways to get around it. You're assuming that They have ultimate processing and manpower. They don't. Look at the fights over the US budget. And I just saw a piece yesterday, about the NSA drowning in...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Some of the time, it would get ugly. The rest... https://paws.kettering.edu/~jhuggins/humor/taco2bill.html The upper manager, or the cop, at some point, will actually say, "I don't see the problem...." A positive note from me: don't assume that even 80% of everyone...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    A thousand pounds for a phone? Hey, let me know who's buying them - I think I can still find some "cryogenically-treated audio cables" that are for the true audiophile, and they were retailing at $1000. Really....

    You wrote: someone like Pigeon or Greg who avoids using mobile phones is quickly becoming the sort of anachronistic gadfly that automatically attracts suspicion That's easier for some than others. Being a parent without a mobile would be a complete...
