  • Commented on Checking in
    Dirk & Charlie I have corresponded with Theodore Beale in the past - I was under the mistaken impression that he was also a YEC (but he claims not to be) Actually, he COULD be that bright ... if he...
  • Commented on Checking in
    I find it fascinating that those who did not feel they were constrained, so that they could make remarks about the person who masquerades using the initials VD (Which is not his real name) failed to mention that he also...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    VERY interesting. I think I've only had one (cureable) software failure on this machine, which is about 9 years old - purchased cheaply through a very uiseful (& therfore short-lived) guvmint employee-computer-purchase scheme .... Hardware failures? The main chip, within...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    I forgot to add - no the figures are not "rigged", though they may not be as good as their proponents make out, either. See also my note about having a close "associate" who sees the raw data, which comes...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    Yes, we do have a small property bubble, but (please remember) I have a direct inoput from a very close source, as to how well "the economy" generally, is doing. And the answer is ... not too badly at all,...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    Charlie .. IF that is the case (even partially) why are "we" doing better than France, Spain, Portugal, Italy & about as well as Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium? Note I have omitted Finland, Sweden ... Germany is beginning to hurt, now,...
  • Commented on Generation Z
    For those living in a democratic country... Which the "USA" ia most definietly NOT It's an oligarchy. See HERE for starters.......
  • 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...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    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,...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    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 ....
  • Commented on "Write me something fresh and new, but make it just like the last one"
    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 &...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    What are "adverts on TV"?...
  • Commented on A nation of slaves
    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...
