  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    By the way for people that love to say things like "polls have been wrong a lot lately" - please stop that. Commentators misinterpreting poll have been wrong lately. All the supposed "wrong polls" results have been within the margin...
  • Commented on What else can you do with a Big Dumb Booster?
    Tesla and SolarCity were set up to save humanity from destroying Earth too much. SpaceX is set up to save humanity in case the Earth *does* get destroyed. Not by humanity (almost anything that humans can do to Earth will...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    There have been worse years ir recent history. Remember 2008? Global economic collapse with a side order of Polish leadership dying in a plane crash, 130000 people die in a cyclone in Burma, 69000 die in an earthquake in China,...
  • Commented on Why Should You Care About Virtual Reality? Because It's A Source Of Hope.
    Currently all VR is a one-way thing and there is a big technological barrier preventing it from being a two-way communication that has not been cracked yet - blocked face. When you put your VR goggles on, they block your...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Free floating currency might have some reduction of some economic downturns due to reduction of costs of the value added on the exported produce, however that is a tiny reduction on a tiny part of the overall value. And at...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Also about the further procedure, check this opinion piece that was published before the referendum on the next steps required if there is a Leave vote - http://www.standard.co.uk/business/anthony-hilton-why-we-may-remain-even-if-we-vote-leave-a3272621.html...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    I really, really hope that people in London sober up and pass a new bill according to which a new UK government pushes the article 50 button, starts the negotiations with EU and when the conditions are clear calls for...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    UK will have to sell more to get less. Largest UK exports are things where demand does not really grow that fast as the price falls - industrial machinery, gems, aircraft, technical equipment. And the price for the financial services...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    The British EU commissioner is already out and is replaced by Latvian Dombrovskis. I will remind you that Dombrovskis was the person who was put in charge of Latvia as a Prime Minister just after the crash of 2008 where...
  • Commented on An Apology
    Funny thing. The Amazon link shows the Kindle part as 34 USD, but when adding to the wish list, the price shown there is 13 USD. I guess will have to let it settle a bit before pre-ordering :D...
  • Commented on Data, books, and bias
    For a cool looking and user friendly data visualisations there is this cool startup called InfoGram....
  • Commented on Obligatory author shilling.
    Serious question - how much *sexytimes* are in the book and how detailed are the descriptions? There is a very popular book club - https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/62938-vaginal-fantasy-book-club . They have a particular need for good books, but detailed descriptions of romantic encounters...
  • Commented on Every [ART] A Painting
    Stephen King's "On Writing" goes quite nicely in detail about how a "good" book "should" be written, but rather lacks the detailing or the analytical approach looking at the texture of existing works and classifying bits and pieces of that....
  • Commented on Default Option
    Maybe the greeks are just doing it wrong? Austerity worked very well for Latvia (where I am from) in 2008 crisis. There were however several key things that can be very tricky to get right. I have not follower what...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    How about Putin and his Ozero collective actually being necromancers? Or how about oil actually being gifts from ancient dinosaur gods for which oil company executives conduct annual sacrifice rituals? And 'peak oil' just meaning that they are getting bored...
  • Commented on Martial arts and the cycle of bullshit
    Higher levels of Aikido practice feel useful for a real fight IMHO - one defender is pitted against multiple attackers who are encouraged to attack with random timing (including multiple at the same time) and full penetrating attacks (to give...
  • Commented on The referendum question
    For a person from a sub-3m EU country the ideal end-state world view would consist entirely of sub-10m nation states that all belong to the same coalition that is an equivalent the what EU + NATO + Shengen are now...
