  • 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...

    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....

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    France was in dire straits after WWII. Most coastal towns and railway junctions had been bombed to shit, and rationing ended only in November 1949. Things got better when POWs came back home, and agricultural production ramped up, and of...

    If we ever build proper high-speed rail in the UK it will be 21st century tech, not stuff from the 1980s and it WILL require debugging the line construction methods, the train designs, signalling, communications, power control etc. Either that...

    All cafes, restaurants, theaters, etc.. are closed and will not reopen (at best) before June/July (nobody knows, really) and then only those that haven't gone bankrupt. A great opportunity for multinational food/drink businesses to preempt really desirable locations...

    In that case, buying anything was not an option, plus diving/sport shops are closed. Cardiology nurses were drafted to help within the infectious disease wards and were issued protective eyegear that fogged immediately. Dishwahing liquid is ubiquitous in hospitals (and...
