  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    If you're suggesting developing shelters, water desalinization/purification/recycling and food synthesis for displaced people on this planet now, will give us a head start when similar techniques are needed off-world later, I like your thinking....
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    Okay, might need to wait until we can build a beanstalk....
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    This suggests another space-based energy possibility, would also need to microwave energy to the surface: http://www.phy6.org/earthmag/wtether.htm...
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    I suspect that if a point is reached where bigger, better blades aren't available, refurbishment will make sense....
  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    "(conserative)politics made manifest"?...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Yes, but, it's more than the south, it's how many of TPTB are okay with human suffering? How adept are they at dehumanization? Can they do this and still command the respect of their peers?...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    What I said fits with ecology as well. Concerning "The perfect being the enemy of good enough", I read as "This is a game of nibbling at the issue, reduce it enough and it's nearly as good as complete...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    A suggestion, a useful thing in stories based in the future might be a meme that some forms of economic success* come at too high an ethical price. *Perhaps those whose success comes at such costs might be referred...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    I see it as more of a thing for the folks who run other people's lives, and those who want to. And 19th century Wall $treet banksters were involved in the plantation economy up to their eyeballs, one of...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    Thanks for that link, I’ve seen her mentioned on Brad DeLong’s page, a good sign that she’s the real deal....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    The attitudes towards labor harbored in the english speaking world will be an impediment to cutting enough carbon emission to relieve Gaia's indigestion. The working class mostly will not have the resources to replace methane fired furnaces, water heaters...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    I both disagree and agree with Greg, lumping all mideasterners together as "Arabs" would be like calling all Europeans "German", I believe he was calling the elimination of U.N. agencies a bad thing as well he should, it has...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    https://rudepundit.blogspot.com/2021/07/why-were-so-fucking-angry-at.html The rude pundit has amusing comments, if you don't mind frequent profanity. If "Drumph!" would make as much noise about vaccines as he does about the unfairness of getting more votes than the last time and losing, we wouldn't...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    Pet shop rats are a thing. Not only for snake food....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Labyrinth Index
    Ferrets have been known to run up pant legs, this tends to really grab one's attention, fortunately, I know this 2nd hand. I also heard the scream when a coworker, out for a smoke on break, had a feral...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    It's highly unlikely those arsons inconvenienced anyone directly involved in those schools. Guilt by association seems insufficient justification....
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Concerning tail lights, the socket & lamp have tin plated connectors, which can oxidize, as "Nintendroids" of a certain age can verify. If you decide to change the bulbs yourself, insert, pull out and reinsert to polish the socket...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    Perhaps a resource war, what if a space capable civilization worked out how to make a living on Oort cloud resources and has been expanding to neighboring systems for centuries, what happens when a species native to one of...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    RE: Star Wars vs Star Trek, But how will the fortunate have a positive self image without human wreckage to look at?/S IMNSHO, counseling seems like a better answer than reeducation camps....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Unleashed dogs are another "Joy" of using two wheeled transport. A squirt of water in a dog's face seems effective, they can't cough and run simultaneously....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Interesting, I drive a 2018 Chrysler product, it will play music from an iPhone as well as displaying maps, I believe it's the same unit as would be in a Jeep or Dodge of the same year. Might there...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    David L., but the important part is it's Republicans wasting the taxpayer's money. /s I'd suggest sending the bill to "Drumph!", not that it'll do any good, except, perhaps to raise his blood pressure....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    I may be out of date, but I remember when only a Rolls engine offered "Reheat", a GE or P&W had an optional "Afterburner". A regional variation, though "Reheat" has an attractive informality about it, and if ever you...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    I take your point, I just feel we need to own our own faults....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Fair enough, but it carries with it "They did it to!"....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Too many Americans have a soft spot in their head for fascism....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    I'm fine with giving Santos-Dumont credit, even though dirigibles and blimps are a bit niche, the concept of heavier than air flight with 3 axis control is a big deal, even if the execution was "Intercorsed" and others had...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    I'm fine with that verdict, but the prosecution successfully separated (Without which, no conviction) the perp from the police, so the needed changes in policy & training will be a patchwork affair and too many departments will be receptive...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Yes, we're coasting, have been for decades, if we don't screw up, we might make it last a couple more. If Biden is replaced by a "Contemporary conservative" their first goal will be to take apart as much as...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    You might add one more, these days, if you put working class folk in decent, energy efficient housing, reactionaries would whine loud enough to break glass....
