    Nice recumbent, looks "Neo-Amish"....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    ...So that I may avoid them! I have no wish to become a real life "Wowbagger the infinitely prolonged"....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Possible he never learned to read well, at least not to the point he falls into the story. Other possibility, the elevator doesn't really go to the top floor anymore....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    If it's only for auxiliary power on an otherwise wind propelled vessel, why not? I suppose if we see a future Apple packaging with an exposed USB-C port, it'll be an easy guess what it's for....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    I don't believe such folks are non-existant in the GOP, but admitting it is!...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    The most charitable response to the support the (Russian) troops is it was likely prepared for publication by someone with design skills, but no knowledge of implements of destruction. Something similar could be seen in "Starman", where F-16s are...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    I would expect where a congregation's Pastor & Elders are sympathetic to Q, dissenting members will be made unwelcome until it becomes Q-friendly. A taxidermy-like process, it'll look xian, but the filling won't be....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    That, amusingly reminds me that "donald trump, bloom county, bill the cat" in a search engine can provoke a much needed laugh. BTW, which comic strip character donated their brain to the masterminds of BREXIT?...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Sigh, sorry to hear it, I hoped the UK middle class would see what's happening here and stop voting "Bread & circuses"* for billionaires. *Though the trickle down will succumb to soap & water ;) ....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Just a reminder, Eisenhower looks a lot better when contrasted with Trump, he was not completely able to filter out the "FME"* he was receiving and we're still dealing with the complications from his failure to adequately leash the...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    The contemporary Republican party only carries over "FDR derangement syndrome" from Eisenhower's day, they map more closely to "Dixiecrats". Gerald R. Ford was the last Republican President comparable to Eisenhower. Hope you all manage to stay out of the...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    From my perspective, what the various reactionaries agree on is the conversion of the developed World into the third World, so the most successful can look even more so in contrast with a visibly miserable 99%. I believe it's...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    That depends on how far your Elves, Orcs & Men are from Tolkien's, his Orcs are kidnapped Elves "Improved" by Morgoth, and it's unclear (To me) that his changes were sufficient for them to be a distinct species or...
  • Commented on Dead plots
    With apologies to the shade of John Candy....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Something to consider on slavery & secession, Lincoln was considered unwilling to allow the expansion of slavery from the States where it was already legal, such an expansion would have been likely to increase the book value of slaves,...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Pournelle wasn't as far gone as what we've got now, so, yes. He was pretty much the last conservative I could bear to read....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Jerry Pournelle's "King David's Spaceship" used a launch vehicle powered by a rapid firing cannon, I understand that he was a retired artillery officer, so the idea might've come easy......

    Might be that developing means of manufacture and mining off-planet is the test we must pass to be anyone worth talking to. Release of a successful Von Neuman machine could result in the suppression of competing space-faring races, who'd...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    If Hayabusa 2 and OSIRIS-REx go well, we should have more information on the problem in just a few years. Possibly before Von Neuman machines we'll get something that builds a mining and manufacturing complex and churns out orbital...

    Trump's younger brother dies... https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-53796429 First, if Trump walks out of the White House, to cheat at golf until a ripe old age, that's good enough. Second, you missed....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    To me, arguments against bicycle helmets can sound a lot like anti seat belt arguments, both involve uncommon, but real circumstances where someone was better off without, and ignore more common situations where one's better off protected....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Well, yes, I was just thinking about it from a science fiction perspective. I do like the concept of outfitting each corona virus with it's very own molecular condom....

    The Atlantic has "How the Pandemic Revealed Britain's National Illness" https://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2020/08/why-britain-failed-coronavirus-pandemic/615166/ The part I don't get is how a conservative party who disbelieve in the utility of government hope to improve it....

    I wonder how much unintentional havoc those nanoparticles might wreak on the receptors the virus uses?...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Yes, if they'd had access to a ballistic missile the motivation to use it would be understandable. The third Reich's use of the V2 was maybe less about pilots than evading British air defense....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    I remember reading a bit about that aircraft in Churchill's WW2 history, he noted that the Mosquito cost approximately as much to build as a V2 missile and delivered as much high explosive as the V2, and could fly...

    Bear in mind that the "SCROTUS" doesn't have the work experience of a typical CEO, before his Government job, he never had to answer to a board of directors....

    A plague Doctor mask would be an excellent choice, after all, who wishes to be mistaken for Dick Cheney?...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    A little, thinking more along the lines of an old motorcycle column, "The Duct Tapes". I figure a plastic box with a HEPA filter mounted in a cut out, a USB powered fan inside, Lith-ion portable USB power pack...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    My S O experienced online learning on behalf of her Granddaughters, I think it's safe to say it was at least as bad in the Kansas City area. I suppose the next thing to try would be powered filter...
