  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    From the Russian point of view, the war has turned to shit. There is no more hope of a quick victory and the conflict has morphed into a war of attrition they are bound to lose. The mobilization order is...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Putin to No/Dk/Pl: "nice pipeline you've got there, shame if anything happened to it ..." Or, maybe it removes a Russian demand in the ongoing negotiations toward ending the war. No, gas sales won't go back to pre-war level....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Who do you think bombed the Nordstream pipelines? Nord Stream 1 is owned and operated by Nord Stream AG, whose majority shareholder is the Russian state company Gazprom. Nord Stream 2 is owned and planned to be operated by Nord...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Maybe accepting the german call for ceasefire was the initial mistake the allied made in 1918. The french high command was divided about that as "one fourth of France was in ruins and not a window pane was cracked in...
  • Commented on Yokai Land Q&A
    At the end of the sixties, in the French equivalent of high school, the physics and chemistry lab had lots of "interesting" chemicals. They were supposed to be only used by teachers but were not really safely locked away. A...
  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    ha, starship troopers, that book does bring back some memories. Twas' in 1974, I had brought two books with me on vacation at the seaside, ST and The three stigmatas of Palmer Eldritch. At the time, one of my main...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Well, I'm a curmudgeonly old fart who is now going to rant away on the subject of the superiority of the French language over the English Language, by virtue of the way in which it handles neutral pronouns. Instead of...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Getting access to a vaccine is the least of my worries. I have tested positive for Covid in late November even though being in lockdown and following all sensible precautions. That was the day before bookshops were to reopen and...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    France end England must have civilian nuclear power if they want to be able to recruit young people for the nuclear submarines. Nobody sane, which is a job requirement, spends the best decade of their youth in a shitty work-environment...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I'm getting really tired of watching CNNs coverage of that dog's dinner of a vote count. There are less than 13 million people living in Pennsylvania and it takes them 5 days to count votes? I've seen some election officials...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    Right now my to-do list (beyond the copy edits for "Invisible Sun" I was wondering. In "Dark State", there are references to the "Grand Dauphin" as being in power. Has he become king? If that's the case, then he is...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    The weird thing, seen from afar, is that any outsiders can run in Republican or Democrat primaries. Don't they understand the concept of membership cards? Even more shocking is that other parties can't get on the ballot in many states....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    The DLR is driverless & they still had a strike. This is right-wing worker-bashing bollocks I'm afraid. Not really, the bosses of the RATP (transport authority) certainly envision a driverless metro as being strike-proof. (lots more strikes in France than...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Ligne 4 is also being converted with a cost estimate of 256M EUR, not particularly expensive. All new lines are to be driverless (line 14) Driverless train lines do not go on strike...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Plus the Young are utterly regardless of any safety behaviors. Masks, what are those? The restaurant-bars 6", what is that? Young people think they're immortal.Some might even think its a one-time chance to get rid of the boomers and not...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    But I want my burger to taste like a burger, and the Impossible burger/ Beyond Meat burgers to a creditable job of pulling that off I would not want to eat a real-meat burger even without additives, so I will...

    Roundup was a Monsanto -Bayer now- brand, but its active ingredient is Glyphosate. Glyphosate is classified as "probable carcinogen" by the WHO. https://www.bmj.com/content/365/bmj.l1613 It is also responsible for honey-bee colony collapse. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6835870/ There has been a campaign of urine testing...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    The two Chinese EPRs at Taishan are both operational and have been running for over a year and six months respectively. Build times were about nine years each from first concrete to commercial operation. They're about 50% bigger in terms...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Most of the French reactor fleet is 40+ years old; while EDF want to build new 4th gen reactors they're still in the early stages of production. The N4 reactors went 'live' in the early 2000's. 2 at Chooz, 2...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    And how can one not be "green" i.e. in favour of not trashing the environment & the climate & species-diversity (etc etc ... ) & yet not see that nuclear power is: non-Carbon.... Sorry, what's your problem? I only meant...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I'd give up, if I were you: Greg swims in a London-based media pool and has some very weird ideas about the SNP in general and Nicola Sturgeon in particular. Also some weird yearning for "not-fake-greens" who somehow would be...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    April 21st, but still . . . https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-21/fda-now-says-smokers-may-have-higher-risk-of-catching-covid-19 [ "The U.S. Food and Drug Administration made a second revision on its stance about the risks of Covid-19 and nicotine, saying that cigarettes also increase the chances of catching the disease....
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    The floated idea that smoking tobacco is a protective habit for this is so counter-intuitive. Nothing has been provided that says anything than this is a speculative flight of fancy. Check cpmment #876 #877 for initial report The French Academy...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Well, it's in the Guardian now, but it was first on Charlie's blog #876...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    The French are the number one cannabis users in Europe, even though prohibition is in full force. Most people use cigarettes (and Gauloises and Gitanes are on the way out); pipe and cigar smokers are rare; because of high prices,...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I'd like to also know how 'socially' different French smokers vs. non-smokers are. If smoking is socially unacceptable/stigmatized in France then it may be likely that smokers interact with fewer people therefore are less likely to come into contact with...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    I thought that study about COVID-19 and nicotine was funny because the French Academy of Medecine is so totally, some would say rabidly, anti-smoking (for good reasons) that publishing it must have led to some painful anal contracting among their...

  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Fun new study about coronavirus and nicotine interaction. Official release, Sorry, could not find an English language link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1L5abPF52S3awVriYhupQrvdPaM3jXNdF/view Summary: There is a much lower percentage of smokers within COVID-19 patients than within the general population. It seems that COVID-19...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    When I first hear this pointed out on Twitter, I laughed. It is apparently true that in many US States you require a license in order to practice as a hairdresser or barber... In France, you need to have a...
