  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    the only fly in the ointment being that when Scotland joined the EU it would have to commit to eventually[2] fully joining the Schengen Area The RoI has an opt-out from the Schengen agreement (I presume this is due...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    I'd like to say "in favour of Dianne Abbott" I'd like to say that too if only for the LOLs. She could only attract 7% of the vote when she stood for the leadership in 2010. She makes the Magic...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    Scexit would be a negotiation nightmare and a clusterfuck with horrible short-to-medium-term economic effects. Brexit in miniature (somewhat mitigated by a return to the EU fold). Sadly Brexit makes the economic case for Scottish independence worse. At the last referendum...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    It is quite the CatastroFuckingShambles of an election, isn't it? I can't think of one bright spot in the whole thing. A Tory leader whose whole career has been a masterclass in shafting anything (Both literally and figuratively) that crossed...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    This is an interesting thread on the flood situation in Houston. https://twitter.com/CorbettMatt/status/901959336850804737...
  • Commented on 2117 revisited
    If the EU is still in business in 2117 wil they still be translating everything into their core languages? French is still pretty widely spoken in some of its former colonies and you can assume that the Acadamie will still...
  • Commented on Popcorn Time
    "so the government in Westminster will be put in the impossible position of simultaneously defending the right of a nation to leave a larger federation, regardless of the economic and social uncertainty this causes, while opposing exactly that position in...
  • Commented on Defining space opera
    The Expanse series seems to qualify and it is stuck firmly in our solar system. Musical opera seems to cover a multitude of sins. What do you think you should aim for in a space opera? The Ring Cycle, The...
  • Commented on Clickbait spasm: 14 gizmos I used in 2015
    The LiveScribe can also run Infocom games. Some genius ported the Infocom software to the pen. It reads your written input as the command and shows the output on the pen's display. Just got a 1Tb drive for the Raspberry...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    Regarding the Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland. While I have no doubt that there is blood on his hands there is no record that he "spent many years in British prisons for murders he allegedly committed while leading a...
  • Commented on Why we're not going to see sub-orbital airliners
    Minor nit to pick: Lossiemouth is still an operational RAF base. Leuchars has a runway long enough to support sub-orbital jaunts (Space in the morning and golf in the afternoon) and RAF Machrihanish comes up from time to time when...
  • Commented on Let's put the future behind us
    "Trapped forever, unable to pay the robot it's exit fee, they live feral lives trapped in the interstices of a tropical future ..." J. G. Ballard would have a had a field day with this place....
  • Commented on Who ordered THAT?!?
    "but deeply resented being told that they were too wee, too poor, and too stupid to go it alone" That's an SNP strawman and always has been. The No campaign never told anyone this (They weren't totally stupid). T...
