  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Charlie @ 437, I've been thinking along those lines observing the use of bike lanes in Los Angeles whose main purpose is virtue signaling. A typical bike lane consists of a 80 cm wide strip painted between the parking lane...
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Lavery @10 "I have sometimes had in my mind the image of the bluff, honest, red-faced Englishman. Surely he exists. However, I just finished Simon Singh's /The Code Book/. And I learned that the English can be the most devious...
  • Commented on The impotence of the long-distance trillionaire
    I would like to add into the mix one of the more toxic products of billionairedom, perhaps the most toxic product, that is their children. The poster child for this is Donald Trump. The Kock brothers are also descendants of...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    First a quick summation of how the war's going: The Ukraine is giving Russia the Finnish treatment. But this post is is about weapons and the future of warfare (I've been doing some doom scrolling myself) and future warfare is...
  • Commented on Bad news day
    I do find Seagull to be a most appropriate name for her. She has a habit of flying in on occasion, shitting all over everyone, then flying off....
  • Commented on Bad news day
    Just a little anecdote from Aerospace & Space Technology on the war in the Ukraine: Satellite photography reveals a lot of stopped / abandon convoys of Russian trucks. One of the reasons for this is that before the invasion began,...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    To all those who are moralizing about the evils of air travel. Stop worrying about it. The airline industry, plane manufacturers, and in particular European governments are taking this problem seriously, and they are making a steady program to render...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    Paul @ 418 It sounds like Boeing has fallen into a similar trap. Oh, it's way worst than that. Aside from the normal tendency of American firms to cull its engineering staff in a downturn (Life for an American engineer...
  • Commented on Oh, 2022!
    Charlie @354 I've been following Boeing's travails and the 737 max fiasco quite closely, mainly through reading Aerospace & Space Technology, and from what I can see Boeing is in serious trouble. It's showing signs of British Leyland Syndrome where...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    I see from reading the BBC site that the Boris will probably trigger article 16 over the problems with Northern Ireland. I see it as likely as it's the sort of thing Boris would do to distract the electorate from...
  • Commented on PSA: Publishing supply chain shortages
    I wasn't going to post this until after the discussion reached 300 posts, but since Facebooks come up I'd like to recommend this article https://heisenbergreport.com/2021/10/25/the-facebook-papers-were-not-asking-the-right-questions/ If you are in a hurry, you can skim the first few paragraphs up to...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    In the Midwest of America, business are already building electrolysis plants to utilize the surplus power from windmills. What they are planning to do is sell it as natural gas as natural gas can be diluted up to 25% with...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    I’m more sanguine about crypto-currencies than Charlie. They are suitable for financing illegal transactions, but then criminals usually find ways to finance their dealings regardless. Here’s how I see things playing out in a world were crypto-currencies become pervasive: We...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    Charlie, your Ghost in the Machine article just got a link to it listed on the Naked Capitalism web site....
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    Urban Sprawl Thread: The thing about all city growth and urban sprawl is that it is ultimately governed by the laws of physics. If a sprawly urban area takes root and starts growing, if its area and hence its population...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Slightly off topic, but relevant to people not following the law: In Los Angeles, this July 4 there were no public displays due to the Corona virus, but this didn't stop people from putting a private display. Here's a video...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Neptune's Brood
    The link below is to a paper by Claudio Maccone on the power requirements for a double gravitational lens set up: transmission from one stars gravitational lens point to a receiver at the target stars gravitational lens point. http://www.snolab.ca/public/JournalClub/alex1.pdf As...
