  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    Your model has been tried before, in late 16th C Japan, where the Shogun, having risen from the ranks, made bloody sure no-one else could follow along. Not a pleasant prospect...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    And. I also give you: The EU Arrest Warrant, where, without so much as a whisper of a prima faciae case, you can be slung in a freign slammer for 18 months with no appeal or recoruse [ Yes. i's...

    Wages, suppression etc. This, of course is one reason why really BIG business is pro-EU Lile the Empire Windrush & ever since, imprting large volumes of foreign labour, who don't know haow "the system" works is a sure way of...
  • Commented on The Curse of Laundry
    General warning UKIP are stealing real, actual "Old Labour" votes & with good "reason" - & not just pinkies like me & Charlie, either, quite a few Brits who are various shades of brown are royally pissed-off with the corrupt...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    Good news & bad news Typically contrasting the scientists, engineers, medics & technologists improving things & the greedy & stupid politicians fucking things over. The good news is: HERE ( Similar articles in other papers, too) Note that the stem...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    Just heard on the radio this morning, that total Brit gen capacity is approx 60GW ... ( Should be more, but that's the wonder of privatisation for you ) So, @ 100MW a pop, we need 600 of Lockeheed's sunshine-in-a-box...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    P.S. Just after signing off above, I came across this Now that really is a corrupt, undemocratic shady deal that will crap all over everyone a lot worse than anything else - fawned over by our elected government. No thanks....
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Disagree profoundly, Charlie. The Corporation do an enormous amount of "good works" & they are an elected body, not an oligarchy. They are certainly a lot more democratic & waht's more accountable, than the neigbouring borough of Tower Hamlets, that's...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Oh dear. Epping Forest is in the guardianship of The Corporation. [ ... of London, i.e. "The City" ] The watermelons have taken an irrrational dislike to The Corpration, claiming they are all corrupt bankers, undemocratic, etc ... The Corporation...
  • Commented on Some thoughts on turning 50
    "Tombstone" ? I think Milligan's is the bast: "I TOLD YOU I was ill" As for seeing the idiots repeating past mistakes, well, it's tiresome isn't it? "Aches, pains & twinges" Ease past them, try various allieviating measures, including very...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    "citation needed" Well, the "green" party have publicly stated that the gaurdians of Epping Forest are corrupt & undemocratic & they should be abolished. I assume that the penny has dropped recently, as I had not heard of their move...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    very funny (not) guthrie - I'll take that as a simple snark - please read my fact-based commentary, huh? AND also rich @ 231 In which case, why are they publicly campaigning to remove Epping Forest from its current guardians,...
  • Commented on Some thoughts on turning 50
    Hapy pipy bthuthday ( Or whatever it was that appeared in "Pooh" ) DO NOT EVER GIVE UP Keep at it... As for "exercise", well, from personal experience, lots of low-level moderate "stretching" is (almost) infinitely better than "EXERCISE" or...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Didn't know about that study, but things got a lot more interesting ( IIRC about 30 years back, now ) when a Ball Lightning "materialised" inside the Cavendish, during a typical Fenland thunderstorm. What's the latest idea - the same...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Charlie Old problem So (f'rinstance) ISIS are not evil ?? They believe they are "virtuous" of course, just like the Inquisition. But ... everyone else thought/thinks they were/are evil. Is it subject to democratic vote, or is it subject to...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Faith matters, whether you believe in theism of some sort, or atheism of some sort. REALLY? I think you are utterly wrong. Unless .... you class ... "I believe/have faith in that the Laws of Physics will continue to operate...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Plenty Not only are the (English) "greens" regularly referred toas "watermelons" (green outside, red inside)... They are nasty little control freaks ( "Two wheels good, fout wheels BAD, Diesel is EVIL, clamp down on "binge"" drinking - i.e anything more...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    Certainly nuclear-powered (electric) trains - maybe evn directly loco-powered - depends if it scales "DOWN" as well as "up" doesn't it? I think there will still be a role for other power-sources, just the same, but they will be niche...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    Save us the effort & give us a list of the other small-scale non-Tokamak "promising projects" please? I'm assuming that the "Lockheed" one is furthest along? (??)...
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    I sincerely hope they are nothing like the English "green" party, who are a very nasty collection of fakes, with Stalinist leanings on the inside & policies that are the very opposite of actually, you know, "Green"....
  • Commented on Metacommentary
    but the profit margin in space is about to be salami-sliced by Elon Musk, whose goals are utterly orthogonal to the traditional big military aerospace combines And (we sincerely hope) will be evn more shated if/when skylon launces, cutting orbit...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    EXCEPT it looks as though the biggest "villains" in this area - the Chinese - are themselves realising that even they can't go on like this. Similarly, in spite of their propaganda & spending, the Kochs don't appear to be...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    *cough* You forgot one simple method for getting proper population control: Kill all the "priests" *cough* [ How do I draw a smiley here? ] Or at least, get people to stop listening to then, ever ........

    And paws @ 389 I was first intoduced to what is now called the ISU in 1960-61, at school I'm quite easy (usually) in either system & can do most (back-of-enevlope) conversions in my head. What gets my goat...

    Hugh Fisher / heteromeles / Ian S The bit I find interesting is the bit in the Skunk-Works claim: In a statement, the company, the Pentagon's largest supplier, said it would build and test a compact fusion reactor in less...

    Don't panic ... though I think you shoud go for a small correction ... You said: 1. There is (most likely) no god. Please try, instead ... "If there is a "god" [ Insert_name_$BigSkyFairy HERE ] then why is $_god...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    Sure? Places like Singapore & Malaya & Indonesia would seem to be good for qualification, ditto some parts of the central Americas & the area round the Bight of Benin. Please, btw, can we always use rational ISU measures here?...

    JPR Can't ( Or not comment, anyway ) Ello is invitation-only, remember?...
  • Commented on Not a Manifesto
    The "interpretation of dreams" huh? Will there be any references to the Anglo-Irish inventor, aeronautical engineer & mystic J W Dunne? ( If not why not? )...
