    My first wife and her husband went to Italy a long time ago. She told me that the way Italian drivers drove was, "if you don't like the way I'm driving, get off the sidewalk!"...

    Wenches in landrovers? I'd like to do research on that.......

    *sigh* Body hacking. Isaac Bonewits - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Bonewits#Illness_and_death Then read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eosinophilia-myalgia_syndrome About his body hacking with L-tryptophan....

    My whole reaction to WeWork, the little I know, is that it's offices for people who want to make a company, but have no money to rent an office, and, probably*, no business plan. * I read, long ago, that...

    Ah, yes, the days of the "Journal of Planaria Research/(flip over like an Ace double)/The Wormrunner's Digest. Still remember a couple articles in the latter, concerning the use of blueberry pancakes as laboratory animals, they demonstrating gravitophilia so strongly. Still...

    That's silly. Why, the US could cut its carbon footprint by at least 25% by hooking up 50% of us the a generator, and showing us the Orange Thing's latest press conference, and it would leave our brains spinning so...

    Lessee, John Brunner wrote about that, I think, in The Stone That Never Came Down, and that's more-or-less in a short that I'm writing right now.... It's the old line, I think from Groucho, "who are you going to believe,...

    "Many holes". Sorry, I seem to be in a silly mood, but is that why they dug 4000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire And though the holes were rather small They had to count them all Now they know how many...

    I never got past the first or second Dune book. Jews in space, with Bene Gesseret goodness? In 50k years? *rolls eyes* Did the last Dune book ever come out? The one suggested in a mid-seventies book review in Playboy,...

    Sorry, I haven't followed. I just looked, and year, he's late 40's/early 50s, and 1991 was 28 years ago, which would put him at about 22 then - in the US, a lot of folks go to college right out...

    In your ipsum, I read "libertarianism is that it is a unified, harmonious system." Please, could you *possibly* put a "do not have anything in your mouth before reading" warning? That's the silliest thing I've read in a couple of...

    About the attack on the Saudi processing fields... I was just speaking to someone who has more, ahh, informed knowlege, and he suggested that, given the extreme sanctions on Iran (aka economic warfare), they're selling their tech to anyone with...

    Sorry, I may have misremembered. *shrug* Not my religion. The punchline still works.......

    Trumpolini is more than just capricious: he's also a racist, like his father. You say it's visceral, how he feels about Obama? Well, what *EVERYONE* seems to have read and forgotten about 15 sec after reading it, being all titillated...

    I have to say that the food in the dining car on Amtrak is still the way it should be: good. Plastic plates... but the table's set, and the food isn't insanely priced. I just looked, and yep, I can...

    To which I have one reply: See ye that narrow and briar path? That is the road to Heaven, though after it few inquire. See ye that braid, braid dusty road? That is the road to Hell, though few think...

    rant And Rummy LIED TO CONGRESS UNDER OATH, "who could have imagined such a thing as people flying airliners into the Pentagon?" I may have saved the web page from the Military District of Washington, which had those pages up,...

    Ah, yes, Badtaste jokes. What are the three things Baptists don't recognize? 1. The Pope. 2. The Trinity 3. Each other in a liquor store. Of course, these folks were around way back when, also: I've read (in an academic...

    Next time you come up this way for a con, say Balticon, or maybe Discon III, I'll stand you a drink. I think you and I would get along famously. And I refer to her as I first heard from...

    The '86 NASFiC... I was there, and will never forget it, though if I ran into you after Sat afternoon, I probably wouldn't remember. Do you remember they had an "icebreaker"? Well, I finally found #3 on my list, and...

    We must have. Aber... I've been a Cymrophile since my late teens (trust me, I can go on about the Matter of Britain far longer than you want to listen)... but Aber. My late wife's mother was a war bride...

    Forgot my footnote: We'd been driving on I-70, and in Colorado, *all* the rest areas were in town, with insanely bright lights. Anyway, we're driving in the night, when K8 says "there's a pulloff back there, and a bunch of...

    I have two Serbian friends, a guy I worked with (who still thinks of himself as Yugoslavian), and my duly-appointed niece (I appointed her). Goddess, Charlie, I hope not. I hope not. But then, I'm also saying that in the...

    That's bullshit. 80% of American Jews are *not* fascists. You don't know them. I DO. A lot of them are liberal, to say the least. The ones with money... well, see the GOP. The rest? not so much....

    Yeah. Some friends of my late ex, about a dozen years ago, came over from the UK to a con in LA... and emailed her, asking if the Grand Canyon was an afternoon trip. To use Doug Adams' line, the...

    I beg your pardon. According to wikipedia, about 36% of the entire US population lives in the mid-Atlantic/northeast, while CA is about 10%. All of that "collapsed cores", etc, is a) right wing dog whistle propaganda to their Southern, mid-western...

    Perhaps I wasn't clear: the shove-it was a CRAP CAR, and they sold it knowing it was. We bought it in '81, a year old used. I mentioned the *second* trans rebuild, that one paid for by a class-action lawsuit....

    Um, yes. In the mid-seventies, a girlfriend I had who drove a cab in Boston told me that stop signs were "mild suggestions", and red lights were getting to be that way. But then, Boston, unlike Philly, wasn't planned -...
