  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Oh? I've heard of someone with a taste for gold crappers... though he might have an alibi, for once....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    We didn't get anything like that here, just either a 1.4 or 1.6 with very little power, though it did wonders for the self-esteem of owners of other small cars......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    You reminded me of a Chevette story, allegedly some GM engineers thought that a hot hatch could be a nice thing and they had an idea or two about making a Chevette interesting, mostly involving a 2.8 FI and...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    To me, that implies a vote for contemporary conservatism is a vote for eventual National irrelevance, because the movement is thoroughly owned by enormous money, who can't be bothered to care about anything but money and status, Darwin take...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    No way will "Herr Drumph!" select from the best & brightest, he'd feel threatened....
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    I'm sorry for your loss, my parents died 10 and 26 years ago, for me life went on, though under a shadow, which eventually one doesn't notice so much. Take the time you need to learn to live with...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Just as well FDR was in the White House and not Herbert Hoover also : https://www.bradford-delong.com/2018/08/herbert-hoover-as-bad-to-ally-with-stalin-and-churchill-against-hitler-as-to-ally-with-hitler-against-stalin-and-churchill.html And wouldn't that alliance reflect well on the United States when the camps became known. It's mu opinion that holocaust denial became more...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The tragic bit in that story is a society can only change slowly, the oil executives who attended that talk would not have seen s significant drop in profits in their lifetimes if we'd attempted an energy transition sixty...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    An issue that could be talked about more, contemporary conservatism in the anglo sphere seems to have little in the way of positive goals, on one side of the Atlantic, anti-Labour and the other, anti-Democrat, the memory of Conservatives...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    I suspect the advice she received was something like "Do what Bad Hair Man asks to spare the nation an even worse crisis.", I believe not making the situation even worse is what the royal family hoped to gain....
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Car addict? Guilty, used to cycle a lot, relationships, children, grandchildren and age cut that to nearly nil. The nail in the coffin is no safe bicycle parking at my employer, I remain unconvinced I would still have a...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    That was Will Rogers, in Mark Twain's day Republicans were... different....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    And I don't doubt for a minute some of them are endeavouring for just that....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    The .01% is hoarding money, as a status symbol, an aphrodisiac, because they feel butthurt over their Grandparents acquiescing to The New Deal and if life extension becomes real, it'll be God damn expensive. They're also convinced that "Little...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    The Packard V12s in the PT boats were derived from the Liberty V12 of WW1 so, a low bar to clear....
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    A-7F with contemporary avionics might be the thing, a stretched A-7 with an afterburner, but it's been gone long enough something new might be in order. Little or no stealth, a lot of hard points, an internal gun, an...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    So, we should phrase it "Some folks will do some damn fool thing with their time that makes no sense to us."? I would like to add to that, we know next to nothing about how genetics effects intelligence,...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    Considering how much of an attention whore "Herr Drumph!" is, the ascension of the orange misfortune may inspire enough interesting "Hold my beer!" moments to rival Norman Spinrad's "World War Last". I hope we all live long enough to...
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Should you decide to keep posting, I believe I can bear the increased levels of sanity....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    I believe the 1% doesn't like to dwell on how much their long term economic health depends on a prosperous working class. I also believe they derive a lot of self-affirmation from a right wingnut governments preoccupation with them....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    Applying front brakes safely on a bicycle involves a technique, lower your center of gravity by shifting your weight low, and to the rear of the bike. Hanging your bum behind the saddle while holding your chin close to...
  • Commented on Story time!
    I remember listening to a radio interview of a social anarchist who claimed to have bought several talking Barbies and G I Joes, exchanged the voice modules, repackaged them and returned them, in time to be Christmas gifts. I...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Interestingly, the "Hostile takeover of Democracy" seems limited to making another New Deal impossible in The United States* , little or no thought seems to have been invested in electing somewhat competent conservatives who might promote trade, rather than...
  • Commented on Story time!
    I'm assuming Trump had a momentary remission of his unfortunate rectal-cerebral inversion....
  • Commented on Story time!
    I thought of the one who can only be appeased by hot dip galvanizing unibodies entirely, the entity that made otherwise decent cars crumble......
  • Commented on Story time!
    Let's hope that isn't drawn in North America, the result might seem... insensitive....
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    I carry an old Black Sabbath CD in my vehicle, so in the event NPR discusses Trump, or worse, replays his voice, I can listen to something less batty, like "War Pigs"....
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    IMHO, Bolton's problem seems to be not figuring out that "Bomb, bomb Iran" was a darkly amusing parody which should've been forgotten 38 years ago, not a guide to 21st century policy....
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    Another angle on an Iranian action, the capabilities and limitations of The United States will be clearly demonstrated to people we might rather were kept guessing, which I expect to become a bullet point in a future sales presentation...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    It's the small business owners who're confused, voting against their immediate interests, which would be better served by a progressive agenda, in favor of a fantasy that, as business owners, they are served* by policies crafted for immense wealth....
