  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    Troutwaxer said they haven't really solved the half-life problem for radioactive trash; they've merely reduced the worst of what the IFR puts out to something like 15,000 years. and then: You need to read the Wikipedia article more carefully. Note...
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    The two obstacles are that it can be configured as a breeder for PU-239 That is addressed at the end of the "advantages" section of the Wikipedia article (search for "proliferation"). If you keep the plutonium mixed with other heavy...
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    The date for recovery to start is measured in half-lives of Uranium and Plutonium atoms after you stop using nuclear. An Integral Fast Reactor can burn long-lived nuclear isotopes, yielding only short-lived nuclear isotopes. See: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integral_fast_reactor...
  • Commented on Trapped in the wrong trouser-leg of time
    I would like to hear the first chapter of Labyrinth Index. Was a video made of Charlie's recent reading at that science fiction conference?...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Review: Delirium Brief is an excellent documentary about British politics. The majority of the political process documented there was previously entirely unknown to me. I think I'll stay in the US for now....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    >...find out what the Manties are going to do about the problem. I don't know what "Manties" are. I disrecommend looking it up unless you have eyebleach on hand, which I didn't....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    EG someone could make something like a time bubble and hide for eons? Or say hide the UK until the horrors eat everyone else and move on? Perhaps this was already done and the entire story has been told from...
  • Commented on Upcoming travel
    The claim about Trump's nephew with cerebral palsy was apparently true at one point, although there was a round of lawsuits and sealed settlements since then so we don't really know the final outcome. It's pretty common for people to...
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    My dad believes in climate change. He believes that the climate changes all the time, and there's nothing to be learned about how it changes or anything to do about the fact that it is changing. There used to be...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    I'm getting a really strange feeling here. Let's just hope we don't suddenly get confirmation that the Many Worlds explanation for quantum mechanics is actually true and we live in an Everett-Wheeler cosmology, because that would be really uncomfortable ......
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Charles -- What actually happens to you personally as a consequence of this? One scenario is that the local economy goes to hell and no local people buy your books because they are giving priority to buying basic things like...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    There's a good explanation of the phenomenon, backed by plausible psychological research, in The Authoritarians by Bob Altemeyer. He was able to identify two subgroups of people that are probably quite different from you or me: authoritarian followers and authoritarian...
  • Commented on Gratuitous Self-Promotion
    Hey, I can easily get to Mountain View! Do you intend to make any public appearances near there?...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    It seems too coincidental for Spratt to be bouncing off the walls one moment and then Mo says slowly and clearly "Are you forbidden to talk about professor Freudstein?" and then he instantly dies. The negated question was meant to...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    I think you mean the acknowledgements at the end. The Kindle version of Annihilation Score, at least, doesn't have a foreword....
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Why did the first supervillain (the one that Mo took down while outing herself) die in police custody when Mo said her magic sentence? That would make sense if Freudstein was a high-powered supervillain who had geased the guy in...
