  • Commented on Burnout, creativity, and the tyranny of production schedules
    I'm glad somebody else uses Helpy. In our house he's one of a cast of recurring characters-without-stories - sort of local archetypes - who provide conversational synechdoche for what my 12-year-old calls "IRL tropes". We visualise Helpy a little like...
  • Commented on Bombing Syria Considered Stupid
    If our proposed candidate had a range of ideological delusions that made all of these things individually seem The Smart Money to him, the fact that they cumulatively amount to naked evil could well be invisible to said candidate. We...
  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?

    "Shitcunt" works nicely as an insult that wouldn't get picked up by the metric but is really pretty effective. I think it's underutilised generally and deserves a renaissance. Also what you say about "cunt" in Scottish vernacular is interesting, it's...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Mate, it's not "entertainment". The people who own the news outlets here quite literally drive social policy. The government depends upon them for propaganda - their brief defection to Labor in 2007 was a straightforward show of power to a...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    If, as in Australia, the provided benefits: a) are small enough so that a couple renting a poor quality dwelling in a city they are forbidden to leave are left with $80 per week to feed, clothe and clean themselves...
