  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Yes it was, some things stay true....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    I like to think that any given variety of Human can be expected to have strengths and weaknesses from a range of Human potential, so, no short cuts, everyone must be evaluated individually. For instance, I, living in Western...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Interesting indeed, possibly enough so to get me to buy it, thanks for the link. Be a damned shame if we lost the good bits of capitalism because of bad actors seeking to evade responsibility for their actions and...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    That book was amusingly referred to Monday and today in the "Girls With Slingshots" rerun. https://www.girlswithslingshots.com/comic/gws-chaser-1390...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    The difficulties in Nations infected with "Contemporary conservatism" are anything done must reward someone with profit and choosing searching for silver bullets over anything that looks like hard work. I wonder if some Vietnamese and Cubans consider SARS CoV2...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    FWIW, I hope for a cure for our ruling elite's obvious "Rectal-Cerebral Inversion", it would be much more useful than secession. Also, FWIW, my home State is also infested....
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    The "Kleptocracy" may imagine they're dismantling the middle class, but they're actually gnawing the foundations, it's as if the radiator cap on a classic Rolls started eating the frame and suspension. If there was anything like a plan, they'd...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Concerning computers on Mars, what OS they run is likely not nearly as important as having unfashionably large feature sizes in the chips, or really impressive cosmic ray shielding....
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Interesting point about shift work, I've been working the "Anne Rice" shift for over twenty years, sounds like some self-deprecating humor might be wrung from that....
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    He should've known better, but a decade or so earlier, there would've been little in the way of Holocaust denial in the air, the prospect of encountering a healthy, athletic eye witness would've kept them under their rocks. In...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    I read Worlds in Collision when I was a pre-teen, haven't thought about it seriously since. Anyway, I prefer to remember James P. Hogan's other works, like the Giants novels, The Proteus Operation. Holocaust denial may just be related...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    I believe the title you're thinking of is "The Mirror Maze", James P. Hogan, fun to read, not enough fun to re-read....
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    PH also matters a lot, water supplies not managed by political appointees* will use PH modifiers to avoid leaching lead. GOP apparatchiks....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Since digressions seem welcome just now, the Rumored Apple Mac processor transition to ARM looks like a worthwhile thing. I think Apple is mindful of the experience of early Intel-Mac adopters, who found no update path after 10.6, and...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Exactly, the GOP has a long history of being soft on fascism. Which reminds me, I want to watch The Blues Brothers again, worth it for the comprehensive ridicule & abuse of neo-NAZIs....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    DT runs a small risk condemning antifa, a few people might remember that some Republicans, likely out of a hatred of FDR, thought we would've allied with the Third Reich rather than the U.K. during WW 2....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The Mammonites aren't really looking for a free market, they spend a lot of time attempting to isolate their businesses from market forces, what they seem to want is a cycling path that's downhill both ways, IOW, sharply dressed...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Loved how the novelization ended with "And so ends another chapter in our series,"Dead Worlds of Antiquity"". And my neck of the woods, Kansas City could easily merit more than one warhead, even now....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I think a lot of opposition to a UBI is based on a misconception by the .01% on their role in society, in their eyes, the economy is a thing they built, while in truth, it's a thing that...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    There may be some "Arachnophiles" about who'd like details... as in what sort of spider sets up house keeping in a first generation SUV?...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    The reaction of the "Conservative/landowner class" seems to me like that of young siblings arguing over who got the shinier toy or two ML more beverage, resentment. It also leads me to doubt the workability of my preferred solution...
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    If you're going to have a sarcasm, do it where no one slips in it... ;) Seriously, if The Cult of Mammon would disavow human sacrifice they might get to keep capitalism....
  • Commented on Yet another novel I will no longer write
    Why overcomplicate? It doesn't have to be pure capitalism* or undiluted socialism, borrow enough socialist ideas to stop wasting human lives, Mammon is indifferent to human sacrifice. *Why does capitalism need purity? Curiously, it makes it sound like a...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Shell color has nothing to do with the birds diet, free range chickens do produce a deeper yellow yolk, tastes better too. Watching free range chickens eat could encourage veganism in the squeamish....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Disappointing, though not surprising: https://www.commondreams.org/news/2020/03/18/italians-found-way-3-d-print-key-ventilator-piece-1-help-battle-coronavirus-so They found a way to 3D print an essential ventilator part inexpensively... they're being sued by the patent holder....
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Do you think the inability to make our own medical necessities in a crisis could be sufficient to cause a rethink of the practicality of continuing anti-labour policies?...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    The Mansfield decision got the southern colonies on board with the northeast, but they expected, and often got an outsized share of power in exchange....
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Just a reminder (Not as gentle as it might've been.) that goes both ways. And think a bit about how inextricably bound contemporary conservatism is with the peculiar beliefs of the southern .01% and all the joy that has...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7CJovhhVq8 Somehow, I don't see unavailability of southern culture as a bad thing. Pity I might have to leave the country to be free of it....
  • Commented on A serious question
    Not quite the angle I was thinking of... but, that sounds more like rule 34 fanfic involving telepathic giant lizards, or Flesh Gordon. I needed that laugh, thanks....
