  • Commented on Cough Cough
    @Graydon 130 " the Mammonites have greater relative social standing than would otherwise be the case" Precisely. It has never been about money, it is, and it always was about power. Money is a mean to an end and that...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Hey, we devious frenchies managed to *sell* most of our slavery problem to USA in 1803. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisiana_Purchase ( and we are also the proud creators of the "code noir" ) ( and we forced haiti to pay for their hard...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    "They seem to be around what's going on in someone's head... but what happens outside of their head isn't interesting." That's a significant part of french literature since World War II. Intellectuals probing the depth of their navel....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    "They're going to kill the goose that laid the golden egg, but, I mean, the ROI this quarter!!!" I believe it is part of the "pure mercenary business manager" trend of these last 40 years. People, usually MBA, who are...

  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Yes, that's the general story I read, but whenever Darwinian selection is involved, I always add a *lot* of "possibly" and "probably" because it is easy to get into circular reasoning. Especially since this is not my specialty....

    @756 (Charles H) : "That may depend on something genetic, or it might be a custom that you believe in." There is this genetic affection known as "favism" or deficit in G6PD : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glucose-6-phosphate_dehydrogenase_deficiency There is a marked ethnic origin,...
  • Commented on Artificial Intelligence: Threat or Menace?
    "The problem with launching a nuke is that it escalates rapidly." : It can be *much* worse than that. Launch a single missile nuke at North Korea, how does China decides that it is *not* a decapitation strike aimed at...

  • Commented on Story time!
    "Other than "because MBAs and/or marketing people" why do they even bother to pretend to be different?" I think the marketing concept you are looking for is "premium mediocre", as far as I know the naming of it originates in...
  • Commented on CMAP #16: Book Title Blues
    "One day Calibre will support multiple index entries for authors properly." I have a big love-hate relationship with Calibre. It does so many things right and at the same time so much of the ergonomy is beyond stupid (specially on...

  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    "But then you also run into the happy fun problem that the average member of the public is utterly unsuitable to hold office, and probably suffers from Dunning Kruger syndrome on top. (I know I'd make a terrible politician—I'm probably...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
