    THAT is what happened in 1933-34 in Germany, actually. The ultra-right thought they were using Adolf, to get rid of that nasty Social Democracy ... right up until 30th June 1934....
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    WHICH section 3? I assume you mean the "International Realations" disclosures version?...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    anonemouse has started an hare here, too .... The parallels with Ireland are many - but the one I want to pick up is th attitude shown by M McGuiness. He always claimed there was a "war" on, which the...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    One could, maybe, argue that certain (almost always "religious") groups have been allowed too much leeway in promoting their Dark Ages &/or neo-fascist agendas, without people having the nerve to confront them, for fear of being labelled "Waycist". When people...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    This gagging law is almost certain to be used to prevent people publishing facts that contradict even clear errors in whitewashing and scapegoating enquiries Which shows just how terminally stupid the politicos are. Even in Putin's Russia the internet exists...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    NE outer London in the 50's was like that too .... The trouble with the NE ( & one or two other places too ) was that there were well-documented cases of children passing 11+ & being refused entry by...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    @ 65-70 They are all greedy politicians, of various parties. How can you tell they are all lying? That's right, their lips are moving ........
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    That is what I called Blair's Syndrome, characterised by an inability to accept demonstrated facts when they contradict beliefs, Actually, it does have a name - & it has had that name for a very, very long time. It's called:...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    This is a general failure ( of imagination, thought & reasoning ) that seems to be spreading amongst guvmint generally ... A lot of time & effort is ( unnecessarilry, IMHO ) being put in to creating & devising "new...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    CORRECTION today Muslims instead of Protestants under Mary, tomorrow who? Catholics mat have been executed under LizI, but it was always for a secular crime ... some were openly tolerated, notably William Byrd ... If the situation had been reversed...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    Yes - very, very diverse. Did you read my listing of the different origin-groups/inclinations(*) that are met on "the plots" a few threads back? (*) Because "Race" is cobblers -see Hetromeles in the previous thread on the differences inside &...
  • Commented on Thoughtcrime
    Without reading the intervening comments ... Very funny - not. Except that: 1: We had an EDL march round here recently (euw) & the spearation between them & even partial supporters of UKIP is immense, judging by the comments I...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    No The advantage of the "Grammar School" system was that it was an escape-route for pooor children to get up the social/employment ladder ... Like my father (Born 1911) - who when he retired was a Fellow of the (Royal)...
  • Commented on Aftermath
    Are you serious? Or are you taking the piss? Sorry, but I was introduced to what was then called the "mks" system of units [ Now the International Syatem of Units ] in 1960-61. Ther are still people, some under...
  • Commented on Aftermath
    I was thinking of the original (as perpetrated/perpetuated in Roman/classical history/myth) not what they became a a symbol of Republican & then Imperial power. IIRC, an early Roman temporary Dictator showed the populace the difficulty of breaking a bundle of...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    there's nothing like low grade chronic pain for causing bad temper. I plead gulity m'lud .... As anyone who ran into me @ Eastercon this year will testify ... having (hopefully temporary) "permanent" shoulder-&-arm pains can make you really shit...
  • Commented on Aftermath
    Because solidarity can be a positive force. It's how the weak bind together to stand up to the powerful. In fact anything human beings do as group happens because we pledge support towards that goal. Oh dear. O dearie, dearie...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Addendum - & also from ATT @ #179 That too, but ageism, & rampant sexism, are still dragging "us" ( The UK & the USA ) backwards, in spite of all the very public evidence that it is a mistake....
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Yeah If, yet again you hear some industrialist or politician bemoaning the "shortage of skilled workers, especially engineers... " He is bloody lying - they are all bloody lying. Actually it translates as: "We can't get well-qualified people aged under...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    - & also Dirk @ 156. Generalised "IQ" is a very wobbly measure indeed - though it does seem to correlate to problem-solving abilities. There are "narrower" IQ testing regimes, which aim to take some sort of measure of...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Personally, I fear knowledge at least as much... Grrrrrr .... This is the sort of moronic claptrap that always annoys me. You are saying that Ignorance is prefereable to Knowledge, are you not? This is akin to religious mysticism, where...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Indeed I'm still running this on WinXP - if I have to go to new Windows, I'll go to "10", or maybe to a UNIX system on a new (self-assembled) box of tricks ... As for cars, well, mine was...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    how much of the neural structure needs to be simulated to get something akin to intelligence. IIRC, the usual answer is supposed to be: "number of parallel/cross-wired (as aopposed to serial) interconnections in the brain" In other words, "consciouslness" is...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Ahh, Newton, Inventor of the Cat-Flap! I realised the "Simpsons" thing was something to do with "Illuminati" etc, but it still made no sesne - hint - I don't have a TV, I don't follow the Simpsons & what's more...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    We are, after all, living in the panopticon while burning through the complexity of the ecosphere at an unsustainable rate, are we not? Yes, probably, probably not - the last if only because people are noticing & doing something about...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Latest news ... Relevant (perhaps) to cultural inheritance. Apprently, Da'esh are getting very close to Palmyra & even the Syrian guvmint are worried, never mind UNESCO & everyone else....
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Google Translate says that your classical Greek said: In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit None of whom exist .... Politely, but I think your medications are off, given the other parts...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    a k a "Babel-Fish" I'm surprised, actually, that no-one ( including me ) has jumped on that one - instant mutual understanding, no need for translations ........
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    That's The Culture's "Neural Net" isn't it? Or a very close facsimile?...
  • Commented on The Ultimate Tech Frontier: Your Brain
    Point of information, please. I assume by a "Billion" you mean 10^9 ( Usual prefix G ) Is a Trillion, therefore 10^12 ( Prefix T ) ?? We're in the DOS era, if not even further back. I would think...
