  • Commented on Inverted realities
    Then there's always the Japanese 'vampire', the kappa. Based on the fact that certain, um, tissues swell up in the dead when they're in water. I did once write a pseudo-Japanese folk tale because I didn't like the usual way...
  • Commented on CMAP: Short stories, what are they good for?
    Since everyone else is chiming in... I'd heard of Accelerando, but hadn't read it. I stumbled across A Colder War*. Then I read the first of the Merchant Princes (BTW Charlie, thank you a thousand times for writing something in...
  • Commented on An age-old question
    Well, a lot of things in the post are already happening, even if only to a small degree. Already physical and mental senescence are delayed past what they would have been a century ago. So we're seeing a glimpse of...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    I actually did attempt to build a processor from 7400 series TTL gates. It was my senior electronics project in high school. I didn't finish, mostly because I couldn't find any instructional materials, but I was making progress. And I...

  • Commented on The morning after
    On US primaries: Yes, we have them, but they're not as wonderful as they sound, depending on the state you live in. In my state, for example, you are only allowed to vote in a single party in a primary....
  • Commented on Wag that puppy
    I wouldn't characterize the Boyd loop as simply as 'hit the other guy first' or 'make 2 moves to his 1'. Nor would I discount the fact that the Boyd loop was originally intended to be applied to dogfights in...
  • Commented on Who let the dogs out
    So Clifton sees Japanese in the European. The first time I was I.33 presented it looked very Filipino to me. The buckler covering the hand while the sword makes the bind looked an awful lot like single-stick work in the...
  • Commented on Wag that puppy
    A couple comments on previous comments: Re: WWF 'integrity'. The only reason the WWF admits that it is entertainment is because the athletic commissioner of New Jersey figured that if those were actual athletic contests, his office needed to be...
