    IQ is a measure of the "untrained" intelligence. What someone does with that intelligence is entirely another matter....

    My current theory about SR is that they are a paid commentator by the Russian government, but they're poorly trained (or trained to a different standard than actually works for an audience like ours,) and either SR or their controller...

    The only commentator who really pisses me off is the one who uses SubGenius break-thinking communication techniques that were pioneered in the early 1980s. (Which I was trained in during the nineties which I was "Bodhisatva Troutwaxer.") I've been blocking...

    I think you skipped a couple words of igpy atinlay. SR doesn't bother me, I'm afraid. Any thoughts on the latest Brexit shenanigans?...

    ...the likes of Greg Tingley... At least you didn't call say "so called 'Greg Tingey'" or "...capitalist running dog lackey Greg Tingey." You might want to avoid the rhetorical flourishes, they weaken your argument. ...just saying....

    The world-nature is deflected and reflected (symbolism) through conspiracy theories and bottom-feeder podcasts/radio. Their ideas about Freemasons, modern eunuchs, and dark rituals among the Australian natives are entirely relevant here. "When I was a little girl, there were little gray...

    DEEP SEVEN is almost certainly the Cthonians, one of Brian Lumley's creations. You can find them in a book called The Burrowers Beneath, which I would heartily recommend for anyone who enjoys Lovecraft. A sequel, The Transition of Titus Crow...

    What we need is not to have an energy monoculture. It's not "nuclear is the answer" or "wind is the answer" or "solar is the answer," but "nuclear, wind, solar (and other stuff) are the answers."...

    I have two important thoughts (important to me anyway) which relate to Global warming. We are far-enough along at this point that we won't fix global warming without taking some risks. If this means build nukes, then so be it....

    ...doubtless tons of links which will take him/her as far as they'd like, but without some propagandist trying to compare the U.S. Depression to Communism or something silly like that. Which, BTW, was the concern of sleepingroutine's which I was...

    The displacement of the farmers had a lot to do with the farming business as practiced in the deep south of the U.S. The displaced farmers were mainly white sharecroppers, who coudln't afford even a single bad season, and they...

    My very clear recollection is that the Dust Bowl was caused by a drought, which may have included some severe wind-storms. My vague recollection is that this was exacerbated by the farmer's plowing their fields incorrectly. I would suggest that...

    I think you're conflating The Great Depression and The Dust Bowl. They happened at roughly the same time, and severely impacted each other, but there were two entirely separate causes. The Great Depression was caused by banks which both held...

    Not to be wishy-washy, but I'd say you're half-right. On one hand, most car accidents are caused by human error. But you're far less likely to die in a modern, well-designed car with all possible safety features, such as crumple...

    Yeltsin was too drunk to follow China's lead in transforming a communist country to a capitalist country? Or maybe Bush didn't do the necessary work to help the Soviets transition to a better economic model? Or both?...

    Your post is very intelligent. I don't trust the IMF either, and you're absolutely right that in-country measures of things like poverty may be as much propaganda as exercises in honesty. (I know nobody in North Korea is poor because...

    Charlie, I hate to rain on your paraded, but that report is from 2014. Apparently McConnell has weathered that particular crisis very well....

    The real trouble is the lies and coverups, and the cost of fixing them. Nuclear material is up there with halocarbons on the scale of "usually bad, hard to deal with" but also on the scale of "habitually lied about"....

    On the subject of nukes, does anyone have a candidate for "the right kind of nuke plant," that is, one that doesn't melt down, does not generate high levels of waste, etc? Pebble bed? Thorium? Something else? What is your...

    I can also recommend St. John's wort. You should be able to buy it in pill form in a pharmacy. (Pay for it with cash.) The behavior is similar to Prozac, and it takes about a month for the anti-depressant...

    I was thinking about this one, and wondered; what if you built a skyscraper-as-farm, with the idea that (in the northern-hemisphere) you'd raise plants on the south side, and put homes and businesses on the north side, with the idea...

    But you can still purchase something that'e ecologically sound. A Toyota RAV-4 will get something like 30 MPG, and there's a version of the Prius which gets something like 40 MPG and is in something like an SUV (maybe more...

    The answer to the physics problem is very simple. They are spherical cows who love each other very much. Their first kiss was very sweet and gentle, and on their next date they are renting a U-Haul....
