  • 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....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Missouri has 2 pumped storage facilities, but one is seldom used because it's on the Osage river and it upsets people to see what it does to the fish. The other had an issue due to minimal maintenance, washed...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    That's their opinion, and it's what you'll hear in the more civilized parts of the state, but possibly half the population would beg to differ. Your selection does hint at the weather rather well though....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    At best, I expect improvements in energy storage to reduce the number of nuclear plants needed, but not in my lifetime. On the other hand, I would be more comfortable about Nuclear power in the US if the Navy...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    The Missouri* legislature is considering a bill to establish a Rush Limbaugh State holiday: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/bill-would-create-rush-limbaugh-day/ar-BB1fDIeb They're asking for January 12, I might be happier if it was February 17. *We can't agree how to pronounce it and we live...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Before attention is shifted entirely to "Strange Attractors", my condolences (FWIW) to those who miss Prince Phillip. I haven't heard differently, but it sounds like there might've been enough of him still there to say goodbye, a couple more...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    My hope is both Argentina and the PRC step away from military solutions, as they frequently open noxious cans of worms, like the invasion of Iraq, where we discovered what could be worse than Saddam Hussein. If Xi is...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Yes, I do. I think of it often of late when talking to the FOX-poisoned....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    FWIW,given the current most frequent users of "Sheeple",an old bit of verse comes to mind: "Known by the company one keeps"....
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    I beg to differ, it has progressed from the day of J. Random Fuckwit to a day representing the core "Principals" of many political parties, National governments, even corporate entities! A Charlie Foxtrot of global proportions! The consequences of...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    I must disagree, while Amazon's web interface works well, when it isn't attempting to divert your attention to things other than one's search request, the physical part, where material objects move, is little different, except the working conditions are...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    One would think that Sears could've added a good web interface to their mail order business, they even tried, briefly, but didn't follow through. The mail order business was shut down in 1992. Perhaps in an alternate reality Bezos...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    Consider buying a webcam anyway, it won't be using the 1/8" input, so likely won't have to deal with a probable sound card driver issue. I believe you'd mentioned owning a Mac mini before, mine works with a Logitech...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    The variation I've mostly heard is "Well bless it's pointed little head", usually directed at the annoying victims of "Rectal-cranial inversion"....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Someone has declared March 4th to be Weird Pride Day, considering that humans manage to be simultaneously absurd and remarkable, they have a point: https://neuroclastic.com/2021/03/01/march-4th-is-weird-pride-day/ I expect it to not be observed by all who qualify....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I'm seeing vir Cotto waving goodbye to Mr. Morden's severed head....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Sounds like Tom Lehrer's "National Brotherhood Week"....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    First, good to know you're still this side of the grass. Second, allegedly pure white folk might wish to not look too closely at their "23 and Me" results, or think about the implications of, to make it simple,...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I've encountered women wearing scents that could give "Axe", or it's predecessor, "Brut" a run for the money on offensiveness, and when my sinusitis is acting up, both are physically uncomfortable....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    A sixties thing on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Taunus The 1966 model was supposed to be a Ford Cardinal for the US markets, sometime after the departure of Robert McNamara, Ford got cold feet and sent the project to Ford Europe. Something...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Agree heartily on your opinion on OGH & his blog, when Jerry Pournelle* was on this side of the grass, I'd read his too, and felt confident that somewhere between was a good approximation of reality (Mostly, but not...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I wonder if part of the difficulty in getting "Socialism lite" is with what it amuses me to think of as "The Mammonite heresy", IOW, "If any working stiff's children can reach their potential, and live comfortably, how do...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Mark Twain was the correct answer....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Also, best of luck, you're much more interesting on this side of the grass....
