    Only the science-fiction writers - they're paid to think about the future!...
  • Commented on I can't even
    The New Management has been rationalized and is now reporting to Azathoth, the blind idiot god....
  • Commented on I can't even
    I'm going to remind all of you UK types that I have a spare room, and my email is my nym (at) the_usual_search_engine's email. If you must flee we can probably accommodate you....
  • Commented on I can't even
    You could have The New Management overthrown by something which is deeply worse... maybe Yog Sothoth shows up and kicks Nyarly's ass!...
  • Commented on I can't even
    The image of SuperCthulhu is deeply amusing... "disgused in daily life as the shoggoth Cl'rk'nt."...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    I think it depends on how well Biden handles his Florida inspection tour. Let him make a good impression and give a couple good speeches, maybe put on a hard hat and talk with the workers at a clean-up project...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    What's likely to happen is that Biden will get the Federal Emergency Management Authority into Florida ASAP. This is the U.S. agency that manages the aftermath of disasters, and they're pretty good at getting people into safe housing and feeding...

    They're probably still doing forensics. But if NATO really wanted to blow up the pipelines, why not get a couple old Soviet torpedoes from Poland, file off the serial numbers, and blame Russia? Since you can't get a submarine into...

    Elseweb someone suggested that Putin's strategy is to wait out a couple anti-conscription riots then say, "the people have spoken, I'm withdrawing from Ukraine." I'm not sure I think this is going to happen, but it would be an interesting...

    The problem here is that gas itself is explosive. The only thing any record of an explosion proves is that the gas mixed with oxygen and a spark, and maybe Russia conscripted their maintenance workers... so I'm a little skeptical....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    And that's the other possibility. Someone might have dragged a multi-ton illegal fishing net across the pipeline. If there's a little oxygen mixed with the methane maybe you get a big boom! I'd guess at this point someone's doing forensics...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    The "PIG" could carry explosives and a couple tanks of oxygen - instant big badda boom....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    That makes sense. I'm sure we'll learn more as things go along....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Never mind. Arbee above provides the information....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Which of the articles is correct about the numbers? One implies about 500 billion in borrowing, the other implies about 195 billion? Or did I miss something?...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    No. Certainly one of the huge number of major changes required to stop global warming is getting rid of coal and gas plants while increasing other forms of electricity generation. Once again, not easy, but much easier if we'd started...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    As I said, I don't know the details. Or am I misunderstanding the question? Are you asking if it was Green electricity?...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    For real nightmare fuel, consider the possibility that Truss & Co. actually imagine that this is a good name!...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Yes. Exactly. And the changes will get worse/more catastrophic the longer we wait. In 1990 a "Moonshot level" effort was needed - change some laws and work it hard for thirty years and we'd make enough progress. In 2010 a...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    True, but there's more than land-use. Cows are major methane producers and really big pig-farms create terrible sewage pools. I'm OK with ranching, but not with factory farms....

    The stove was built into the house. I don't know the details, or whether it was 110 or 220, or how expensive it was to run, but the technology clearly exists. (I think we've discussed this before - my point...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Yes. What does OAP stand for? Old Age Pension or something else?...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    OAP benefits?...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    We could tear out a lot of them. My grandmother was cooking on an electric range as early as the late 1960s....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    With general regard to the recent conversation, it occurred to me a few weeks ago just how large the change we're asking for is. Not that we shouldn't ask for it... First, get rid of at least ninety-percent of meats....

    "Double-entry accounting" not "two sets of books."...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Interesing. Thanks....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    If we lose clouds, what happens to rain?...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    That's a really big one. Whenever I hit a used book store or thrift store I look for howto manuals for various skills which are of interest to me. I'm developing quite a collection....
