  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Oh yeah? Just fuckin' watch me!...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Oh hello Benjanun, how has it been since I've been gone?...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Greg @ 490: Yeah, sorry I forgot not everyone knows "PDX" is a metonym for Portland. For some reason, us locals like to refer to our town by its airport code....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    When you put it that way, it almost seems like England doesn't care about Scotland....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    @ JBS 417: I'm from Portland. We have Antifa like you wouldn't believe, and it is honestly the only reason I sleep well at night. On Thanksgiving after the 2016 election, I saw graffiti that said "KILL YOUR LOCAL NAZI"...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    iu@ Stross 357: The problem is, if it comes to street battles between the neo-nazis and antifa, the police will invariably side with the neo-nazis. And US police forces are scarily heavily armed these days. Doesn't matter if the activist...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Poul-Henning Kamp @ 18: With a probability of one third, the election is not settled, and Trump uses that as pretext to stay in the job, lighting the fuse on USAs second civil war, and as always, the facists and...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    My Amazing Journey - Six narcissistic white trans women are forced to compete through gender-related challenges to get funding and medical support for transition, but only the most selfish and clueless will get the prize! Intersectional solidarity will not be...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    > Oh & STFU about "the royal family", huh? Not even wrong. Eat my shit. Half the time I learn something weird about the UK it's because of the unnatural affinity for inbreeding that so many of you still hold...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    > Peter Pan is an exception. As far as I know, the exception. It's got a perpetual copyright under British Law, with all royalties being supplied to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Wait, hang on. What the FUCK? You can DO...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Next steps for future bullshit: Trump is attacking Mitt Romney for gently chiding him; he's calling for Romney to be impeached, although that is not a thing for Senators. He's clearly trying to keep the rest of them in line,...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    I thought about mentioning Wales but then I thought no, no, surely not. Don't over-egg the custard....
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    I am struck by how consistently the Republicans have been squeezed out of the urban and dense suburban areas. That's self-selection at work. As a dyed in the wool urbanite I can tell you we're not driving conservatives out, so...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    I was also feeling lost and confused, but then Marco Rubio was a spineless piece of shit, and that was like a lighthouse that brought me home. (https://twitter.com/JasonOverstreet/status/1180185703289778176) Every day I see a headline that looks like it was tailor...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    This is pretty fucking scary....
  • Commented on Ask me anything!
    > Remember, dude was a SEAL, not an average soldier. There's like, a thousand of those. How's he so special that they need not just any of the SEALs who probably hang around the nearby east coast sub pens on...
  • Commented on CMAP #16: Book Title Blues
    I wrote the jacket copy for both of my books, but I was at a small, independent house. I'm hoping to retain at least the option to "try out" with a pitch of my own if/when I move up to...
  • Commented on Canned Monkeys Don't Ship Well, the Remix Version
    EDITED BY MOREDATOR...
  • Commented on Dude, you broke the future!
    Can I just stop and point out how fucking disgusting it is for you, a grown old man, to be positively cackling with glee about the horrible death of a child, mainly because she was using a device you don't...
  • Commented on Excuses
    You're completely wrong. People who start with more money can often expand their fortune many times more than someone who starts with a pittance can increase their own wealth, in both relative and absolute terms. We don't need to valorize...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Going to add my voice to the chorus of ASD kids who did not like sports in school, though it sounds like things were better in California at the turn of the century than they were in the UK in...
  • Commented on Houston: what are the long-term consequences?
    Hey, if people are gonna start writing angry notes to "A_D" could you please hop to a new pseudonym? I know it's a little early, but still....
  • Commented on There is no extra credit in science fiction.
    Shit, did I just humble-brag? I swear I was trying to thank you for the insight, so: thanks! I need to stop posting when I'm so damn tired. :P...
  • Commented on There is no extra credit in science fiction.
    Thanks to this post, the penny has finally dropped about why my editors keep complementing me on how little I change in the edited manuscript. They're happy it's a quicker job. I think this sort of basic "what publishing looks...
  • Commented on Report on Seat 14C
    Again, not true. Drone pilots have to talk to air traffic control in controlled airspace True for large drones, but I think we're going to see a proliferation of smaller drones, many of which may be armed, and for them,...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    Robert posted a pretty good list, but I'd also recommend William Hogeland, who does pretty readable popular histories of the early American state that takes a skeptical eye toward a lot of favored myths....
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    We were a land-grab from the start. Washington pushed for war with England when it became obvious that his land speculation in the Ohio Valley would never pay off as long as the Crown kept honoring its treaties with the...
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    That's fucking racist, dude....
  • Commented on Crying fire in a crowded theatre for pleasure and profit
    Trump sort of hinted in the election that he might be less hostile to Russia than Obama had been. This is such an absurd mischaracterization of his public and enthusiastic cooperation with Putin's regime that I can't fully describe my...
  • Commented on Introducing new guest blogger: April Daniels
    The post is coming! But I have a whole lot of anxiety-inducing things regarding SOVEREIGN that I need to put away first, thus the delay. As for casting DREADNOUGHT, the problem with casting YA properties is that the lead, almost...
