  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    My understanding of Windows 10 is the name remains the same but the OS evolves, don't like it now? Wait awhile, you'll get something livable, if you like that sort of thing....
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    I'm guessing no, because it'd mean more nights with meatloaf......
  • Commented on Too Many Thoughts About Genre
    Having read the teaser, for me, it has the feel of other fantasy works, but seen through a different mind, for me, not a bad thing at all....
  • Commented on Artificial Intelligence: Threat or Menace?
    Something to think about prepping for, infrastructure failure, with the added fun that if properties of the stupendously wealthy aren't directly threatened, repair will be delayed by the "Tax is theft!" folks. Flood control structures in a major river...
  • Commented on Artificial Intelligence: Threat or Menace?
    "Southernisms" reminds me of a Redd Fox performance where he explained that black people talked funny because they learned english from southern whites....
  • Commented on Artificial Intelligence: Threat or Menace?
    It's the reason Niven & Pournelle wrote Bomber Harris into "Inferno"....
  • Commented on Artificial Intelligence: Threat or Menace?
    When I see the term "Blower", I think supercharger, as in "Blower Bentley", or GMC 6-71....
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    The U.S. healthcare system is optimized to create the most profit taking opportunities, the inevitable inefficiency is a feature, not a bug....
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    The part that is thought a good idea is to create income streams for rentiers, that this may introduce inefficiencies in service and unsatisfactory outcomes is not considered a sufficient reason to block privatization. It is how they worship...
  • Commented on Sucker bet (a thought experiment)
    One would think the chimp-like behavior of humans with self control issues would clinch that argument....
  • Commented on Sucker bet (a thought experiment)
    Eugenics is so ugly, what you want is a birth control drug that is habit forming and mildly euphoric and looks attractive in advertising....
  • Commented on Sucker bet (a thought experiment)
    Perhaps trashing and ridiculing religions that emphasize the smiting bit rather than the positive things....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    THey've fallen into the trap of believing "Everyone would be better off if they were like me!" and narcissistic enough to not see the trap....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Don't forget the ones who can't get to where the jobs are because speculation has made housing unattainable, especially for entry level work....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The very sort of thing the blond & orange nightmares have in common, and will until conservatives stop talking smack in earshot of their spawn....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The PRC remembers that economic power begets military power, what passes for conservative these days is willing to forego economic power to thwart political enemies, with little thought about what happens when it runs out....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Means roughly there are people who'd rather burn money* than see it go to the white trash and "N-bombs", even if they have to drive the old Benz a couple more years, look for the GOP elephant to acquire...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Someone must've figured out the universe, and it's been replaced by something even more ridiculous, at least, Douglas Adams said it worked that way....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    For the rail enthusiasts: http://www.up.com/up/heritage/steam/schedule/index.htm Tour schedule for Union Pacific's "Big Boy" #4014, I hope to get pictures next month....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    1944 might've been much more brutal to The Alfar, less capable Human war equipment, but a hell of a lot of it and some of the aircraft could hit Mach .8 in a dive at least once.... A one...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Apologies, I should have added Tolkien mentions the fate of the Master of Lake town* on the last page of The Hobbit, relevant to the economics underlying both Case Nightmares Blond & Orange. Elites found dehumanization useful in seizing...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    My wife was looking through her Mother's things and found an FDR pin W/ kicking donkey. Which reminds me, yesterday I went to youtube to look for FDR's second bill of rights film and found Elizabeth Warren's riff on...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    "Drumpf!" not being a southerner, the correct 19th century term would be "Copperhead*", a northerner who sympathizes with the south. *Named after a pit viper one might first notice by the bite....
  • Commented on Creative writing challenge!
    This is the kind of thing that brings to mind how great a loss the deaths of Hunter Thompson and Joe Bageant are....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Darkly amusing, what conservatives* seem to fear most on both sides of the Atlantic is a government that would put the interests of the majority first, even though it would ultimately mean more money in their own pockets. For...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Never said I wanted to talk, just offered an old recollection. "Cab overs" were a common sight when I was a child, now it's rare to see one that isn't abandoned in a field....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I've never talked to a truck driver* who liked "Cab overs", collision survivability was inferior to long nosed tractors, at least with the safety standards of half a century ago. *Admittedly, a small sample, I'm not that social......
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    Your last line perfectly captures my reasons for voting as progressive as party apparatchiks allow....
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Reminiscent of Frank Herbert's "The White Plague" in that cash is used to spread a synthetic plague, a biologist whose wife and child become collateral damage in a bombing during The Troubles sends the suspected bombers contaminated money as...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Living in the land of the Fee, I'm not formally diagnosed, but I likely don't reside in the center of the statistical distribution. Being born before the Atmospheric test ban, I joke that there was a little something extra...
