  • Commented on Generation Z
    Of course, the politicians are part of the problem, not the solution. The 0.1% (or even 0.01%) need "sorting" - but what is "Labour" doing - proposing to penalise the top 5% - very clever - not. It has also...

    Look at the productivity of a well-cultivated Allotment Approx 10x30 metres area & intensively cultivated usually part-time by the owner/lessee. Calculated to provide enough vegetable food for "A family of four" (i.e. 2 adults, 2 children) throughout a year. Mine...
  • Commented on "Write me something fresh and new, but make it just like the last one"
    Poul Anderson once wrote a short story/Novella called: "A Sun Invisible". Which turned out to be a type F1 blue (!) ( In the "trouble Twisters" series in the days of the "poleosotechnic empire" IIRC ... ) In other words,...

    Seems to me, as computers (and robots) become more and more capable, at some point, Capitalism breaks down. Really? Where does the capital come from, then, to build & operate new, moe "efficient" robots? And u pgrades etc ... ??...
  • Commented on Yet another bad idea
    Please don't talk (or write) more utter tosh than you can help, okay? NO - because. Religions tend to try to exclude & persecute ( & torture & kill ) their opponents. Political parties & leaders (normal ones at any...
  • Commented on "Write me something fresh and new, but make it just like the last one"
    a Gothic architectural urban fantasy novel about a slowly dying family of magicians I see ... Sort of ... Strawberry Hill meets & mates (?) with Neverwhere spiced with The Dying Earth or, maybe Niven's The Magic Goes away ....

    Ghormenghast Which is actually about the dying days of Imperial China & nothing at all to do with England, in spite of the tiltes ......
  • Commented on Yet another bad idea
    We've had this discussion before ... [ And one has to be careful how one expresses it, otherwise Charlie will - quite rightly - get all exited. ] Sorry, but communism fulfils most of the tests for "a religion". Most...
  • Commented on Yet another bad idea
    Fortunately, I had finished my tea when I read that ........
  • Commented on Yet another bad idea
    El No You should not be suprised at all ... I'd have guessed atheist as a good son of the Communist party All he did was switch-religion or even just sect ... Communism is a classic religion, after all, isn't...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Fascinating stuff! Thank you , peoples, for the insights into recent advances in battery-systems & power storage. Now, couple that with other recent ongoing research into really improving the efficiency of artifical photosynthesis [ I've heard figures of 20%+ bandied...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Incidentally, is THIS QUOTE: The EU, with its inherent contempt for popular opinion, is just a convenient starting point for what is likely to become a long and heated national argument. Every major premise on which a free society rests...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    No Because the UK as a whole is trundling down the renewables road - it's just that Scotland is n a better position - more WIND, more tides (exceptin the Severn & Morcombe bay, of course) etc. Also, if Salmond's...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Except ... it seems to be a universal phenomenon, that as soon as living standards really improve, birth-rates fall. The only exceptions to this are where religious misogynists desperately try to restrict women's rights & choices. And, even there &...

    Quoting Kipling, I believe?...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Sorrey, Charlie, but I thought that was a given. In the same way that the "left" (Whatever that means now) are still trying to increase taxes, not on the 0.1% (or whatever the tiny ultra-rich fraction at the real top...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    Full employment means more tax revenue for the state - so why is a full-employment policy NOT a good thing?...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    P.S. OFF TOPIC Inwar Ibrahim, in Malaysia, has kicked the anthill over ... Claims there is a cover-up in progress. Oops. See "A Hypothesis" several posts back....
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    I have NOT read any preceding comments, so please bear with me. Osborne is in the UK's hot-seat right now & deserves ho share of the opprobrium, but ... are ANY of the "other" lots any better? [ Labour, Lib-Dem,...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    Oh dear... Anwar Ibrahim has spoken out Shit-hits-fan time methinks. ...he had personally authorised the installation of “one of the most sophisticated radar” systems in the world, based near the South China Sea and covering Malaysia’s mainland and east and...
  • Commented on Because people keep asking me ...
    I'm told I HAVE TO vote for "Equoid" - correct?...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    Conspiracy theory time Probably, it's actually just yet another demonstration of the gross incompetence of the Malaysian "authorities". They all too claerly haven't leanrt yet about public information in the information age. Pathetic. There has also been a reminder...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    This just gets wierder Final Ping to satellite detected I suppose, as is now usual, INMARSAT will have to go public with the data, because the gross incompetents in Malaysia still don't seem to get the message?...
  • Commented on A hypothesis
    The people justifyably feeling the heat, now are the Malaysian "authorities" It seems INMARSAT told them, within 36 hours of the plnae going missing, approximately where to look (The two arcs ) - they went on "searching the S China...
  • Commented on Implications
    VERY EASILY possible, as was demonstrated by fuckwit "architects" in London last year Cars deformed, plastic melted, eggs fried on windowsills, temps of over 90C recorded - & this was in Autumn ..... Google "Walkie scorchie" for more info....

  • Commented on Implications
    Fascinating I went & burrowed in the stacks & came back with my ancient secondhand copy of Rachel Carson's "The Edge of the Sea" (1956) She said: This new distribution ( of temperature-sensitive littoral creatures) is, of course,reated to the...
  • Commented on Implications
    Paws Rowan ( Mountain Ash / Sorbus acuparia ) will grow in rock-crevices with minmal soil, accumulaing wind-blown dust to make soil. Even they won't grow up the slopes of Great Gable .......
  • Commented on Implications
    Can we have that in sensible units, please? And, no, incidentally, that cannot possibly be correct. It does not, ever, get below -44C, anywhere in Britain, but we have a well-developed tree-line on mountains as "low" as 978 metres (Scafell...
