  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    My worst case scenario evaluation is a more immediate thing; I expect a so-called "terrorist attack" on US soil within the next 6 months, and this will be used as an excuse to tighten controls, restrict rights, and basically fuck...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    @Greg - has the whole BrExit stuff passed you by? That's the May crap I'm referring to. There's more than one pile of shit in the world, and I'm not happy to have to chose between them....
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    I'm an Englishman living in New York. And between Trump and May I really don't know where I want to live. If it wasn't for my girlfriend then I'd have moved back to England years ago, but now with May...
  • Commented on Ever Young?
    As well as the above (I'm 48 as of this week; I have a good job; I'm respected by my peers; I own a house with zero mortgage; no debt of any kind; but not married, child free by choice)...
  • Commented on Writer, Interrupted
    Open plan offices were directly responsible for me leaving my last job (where I had been for 16+ years). Over time in that company I'd worked in high-walled cubicles, medium height cubicles, in an office with 1 co-worker, and on...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    Not so much Case Nightmare Green, as Case Nightmare Write? And CASE NIGHTMARE WHITE would be Trump winning?...
  • Commented on Towards a taxonomy of cliches in Space Opera
    Planets rotate east-to-west When you come to a new planet how do you define the compass points? Magnetic? Rotation? Habitation? Related to orbit around Sun? Related to galactic north? I read a long time back that "spin north" was common....
  • Commented on A world-building puzzler
    It would be fascinating to consider further impacts this religious prohibition would have on society. Given that pictographs are a form of writing, it seems reasonable to assume the prohibition extends to pictures of any form. It may be based...
  • Commented on Nom de Teleport
    "Running out of space" and using parallel universes to solve it is pretty common. Richard C Meredith ("Timeliner Tilogy") used a variation of "Problems arise when these universes start rubbing against/entwining with each other" as a motivator... at least I...
  • Commented on Nom de Teleport
    People from England of a certain age may prefer "jaunt" because of The Tomorrow People. http://thetomorrowpeople.wikia.com/wiki/Jaunting (It wasn't until years later that I learned of the pedigree of the word)...
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    (Re: Jim Butcher) "But I don't think he fully grasps the long term consequences of allowing a nomination backed by the sad puppies to go ahead." Do you really think there's gonna be much fallout from this? His books sell...
  • Commented on Terry Pratchett
    I remember that I'd seen Terry at JerseyDevilCon 2002 where he was GoH. But I didn't meet him. I was in the audience for one of his talks, but afterwards, when the crowd closed in for the kill, I walked...
  • Commented on Ask the Author
    If you earned ( inherited / won ...) enough money to retire, would you? Or do you have a compulsion to tell lies^Wstories? Basically, I'm wondering if you enjoy your work, or if it's just a means to an end...
  • Commented on An age-old question
    I noticed suffering the "every day event" problem in my early 30s (15 years ago). It was a 10 minute walk to the train station; more than once (at around the 5 minute mark) I found myself wondering "did I...
