  • Commented on Do my Homework
    That the way of organizing states will continue to mirror the westphalian model - As an individual your national identity and government you follow is determined by the territory you live in rather than religious/cultural/ethnic identity, and said government has...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Calm down. First, you're misreading nojay. He's not saying that bankers == Jews, he's saying there are still a ton of lackwits out there who think that way, who probably also consider all Jews "Christ-killers". It was a direct accusation...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    For a lot of Americans and others around the world "bankers" = "Jews". You might want to take that into account when you read polemics about how the "bankers" are all guilty of unspecified crimes and should all be rounded...
  • Commented on The Pivot
    The only clear issue is that the US Navy and the USAF guard their monopoly on supersonic fast-moving dakka-dakka jets like a pair of bad-tempered, jealous dragons guard their hoards. Incorrect. The F-35 is for all branches. Army and Air...
  • Commented on Happy 21st Century!
    Obviously not, because anyone contemplating genocide as a solution to a perceived resource allocation problem is dumb enough not to understand that economics is a positive-sum game, and that downsizing your population is deflationary/causes negative growth. They don't understand externalities,...
  • Commented on Test Case
    ok everything you just said about guns and gun safety was completely wrong. Not the least of which is you are operating in some idealized perfect dream where no one every makes a mistake in weapon handling, therefore things like...
  • Commented on The Nakamoto Variations
    7. Satoshi Nakamoto is a fairly lazy cube drone who worked in the monitoring division for his asshole defense contractor boss. Rather than spend his time trying to hack the phone of Muslim teens or get inept dads to click...
  • Commented on New publication dates (and audiobook news)
    Hi Charlie, have you considered writing a story about an ENT doctor that gets abducted by aliens? It would be the first work of sinus fiction...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    As for dust or gas ... an alpha particle is a stripped helium nucleus traveling typically at 0.01-0.05 c. If you manage to make it up to 1% of c, the interstellar medium (roughly one atom per cubic metre) can...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    Regarding kings trying to rob Iron Bank: Think of the other unique institution in City of Braavos. No doubt Iron Bank has some special arrangement with the Faceless Men, for just such eventuality. Well, also there was a real life...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    I agree - I see all kinds of people expressing some variant on "let's get rid of the police" and it always comes over as hopelessly naive. However utopian and lacking in motives for crime your society may be, there...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    Take a random grab-bag of concepts and try to imagine the following without capitalism: [...] "trophy wife", That one is fairly easy actually. Plenty of status marriages before capitalism "She has HUGE... tracks of land" and all....
  • Commented on The crazy years
    Also, given how high speed trading works, there's also something of an issue with timing. A bulk of the money that the rich "have" will tend to be theirs for sometimes vanishingly small bits of time. Yeah, that's not how...
  • Commented on New Book Week!
    A Stargate is about 12' internal diameter; a MQ-1 Predator has a 49' wingspan. Do the maths. Yeah, they took it over piecemeal, built an airstrip, and were using that to run an attack on the villain. Can the...
  • Commented on New Book Week!
    This may not mean much to you, but the sort of caution that's notable for its complete absence in the Stargate universe. What do you mean? They had robots they sent in first (MALPs iirc) that served as the...
  • Commented on New Book Week!
    >Is Merchant Princes California also a stronghold of resistance? Man, California is leading the charge in giving Trump more and more power here, why would they be actually resisting in a scenario where DC got nuked? Literally yesterday you had...
  • Commented on New Book Week!
    Something I've never been clear on WRT timeline 1/Gruinmarkt - ok so the Roman empire fell and fell hard. What about all the others? Why did the world get stuck as medieval peasants without Europe rather than having flourishing Chinese/Indian/Persian/Native...
  • Commented on Dude, you broke the future!
    Netflix series, not movie. Due out shortly...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
    wow, websites showing those sorts of videos sound terrible, just terrible... what websites are they?...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    Neither party was ever great on race. But the African-American/Republican realignment started well before Nixon. For some horrific reading look up the on the ground stories about the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927. How that was handled by the republicans...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    In the time since this post was written, Bitcoin's value has almost doubled....
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    The point is, the scenario is rigged from the outset because the parameters are set up so that someone is going to get hurt. To which my response is, "when did you stop beating your wife?" If there is an...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    they literally have a sub called /r/physicalremoval that is used to discuss genocide/ethnic cleansing. Or go check out the comments in /r/The_Donald Fuck off with the "I don't see any Nazis here" bullshit. "A few hours searching" is a crock...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    it's sad to see you call people Nazis in such broad strokes. they want to create a militaristic homogeneous ethnostate that privileges white people, and while they will generally elide exactly how they will get rid of all those...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    One possible explanation, which looks quite reasonable as a first approximation, is that the US libertarian fringe has been assimilated by the neo-Nazis. After all, once you take one red pill, why not take another, and another, until you overdose...
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    Selachii thumped the table. 'Very well, then, by jingo!' he snarled. 'Alone!' 'We could certainly do with one,' said Lord Vetinari. 'We need the money. I was about to say that we cannot afford mercinaries.' 'How can this be?' said...
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    Not so different from long-haul air travel where Delta, American, etc. tend to feed everything through a small number of hub airports.) Yeah, that's actually a not-insignificant problem here in the states with the consolidation of airlines doing that and...
  • Commented on Crib Notes: Empire Games
    More than Russia or sexism or email coverage or anything else, the campaign's decision to ignore the base (both in policies and in geographic location) was the strategic error that put Trump in power. Schumer phrased the plan as “For...
  • Commented on Excuses
    And the rooting will be done by state-level actors with an effectively unlimited budget. Initially, sure. But then some leak will happen and the tools will be out in the wild and then it will be interesting times. Just as...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Kokomo Hum got solved like 10 years ago. Fans on a cooling tower at the Chrysler plant were hitting some resonance and were the source of the hum. They tweaked them, and it went away...
