  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    Oddly what he usually brought up in anti-Semitic rants were a couple of pre states actions in mandate Palestine. Namely the bombing of the King David hotel and this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sergeants_affair. What particularly ground his gears about that was booby trapping...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    No, not true. My father grew up poor in 30's London. He then went to sea in the merchant navy in WW2, transferred over to combined ops and ended up following the 8th army into Italy as part of their...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    Yes, I saw that as well. I suppose from an anti-vaxxer POV it's true and it is a slang dictionary so......
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    Plus. For every user associated with a corporate machine you have a separate set of folders for downloads, pictures and so on. All that eats up drive space on the machine. Even if most user data is held in a...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    That depends on the setting. I play the MMO EVE Online were the characters are humans cybered to connect to a starship and replace the functions of the bridge crew. The ship becomes an extended body and the real body...
  • Commented on WTF
    The actual solution in the 1632 series is to provide a couple of technologies to their allies ahead of their time. The flintlock rifle and the minie ball, thus making it possible to load a rifled muzzle loader at the...
  • Commented on WTF
    The series does present downtimers as worthy of respect. One of the early characters is a woman who was a camp follower of the mercenaries that the Grantville folks defeat in the first book. She and her peers buy in...
  • Commented on WTF
    My understanding is that the news section is fairly Conservative these days, due to the people who are managing it and the high profile Torys on the board of directors. The other sections less so....
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    In Leeds for an Ingress event eh? Enlightened or Resistance? Those are the in-game teams, known to each other as Frogs and Smurfs by the team colours of green and blue....
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    I did hear a (possibly apocryphal) tale of a group of stealth aircraft in the first Gulf war getting lit up by a UK Rapier battery. Apparently they had been making a habit of flying low and the sand had...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    I'm a bit later than that/ Born in 66. The BBC originally had two channels for most of my childhood. Both with no advertising. There was one commercial channel, ITV, which had regional franchises producing programs for it. That carried...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    GC = Gender Critical. It's what TERFs prefer to be called these days, stating that the term TERF is a slur....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I'm on a few Discord servers run by artists that I follow, along with some game related servers. I find it an agreeable enough way of communicating. We could have a channel per topic, including the usual strange attractors. The...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    Yes. As I understand it the current Somali mess got started because foreign ships were taking all the fish in Somali waters without a functioning government to stop them. The pirates started as an attempt to discourage this and morphed...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    With regard to the "are they a political prisoner if they commit crimes" debate. There is a fictional example doing the rounds at the moment. The series Andor shows an early rebellion against the Star Wars empire (it's an origin...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    A Falklands defeat would have also ensured the survival of the Argentine dictatorship. At least for a while. So, not something I would have wished for. And I am, and was, not a fan of the Milk Snatcher. What I...
  • Commented on I can't even
    As far as I am aware supermarkets in the UK have their milk packaged at the same place. I was a temp briefly at the old plant near White City in London and consignments were being made up for most...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Which is not the point at all. Using the term gets you into the habit of dehumanising and despising people that you are supposed to be working towards benefiting by way of improving the world. The end result being that...
  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    That's an interesting read but it seems to overlook Long COVID. It's just focussed on encouraging vaccination to reduce hospitalisations from an infection....
  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    I think you are missing the point. Charlie's worry is less the Seagull specifically and more another poster of more malicious intent turning up and posting stuff that gets him sanctioned under the proposed legislation. So threatening to dox that...
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    I could, but I would not as rule. Because understanding is not required for acceptance. I am especially disinclined to translate for people that shout at me. Sorry Greg....
  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Personally I'm glad to see her back (sorry Seagull haters). My understanding was she was banned from a specific thread, not this board as a whole. I don't understand everything she was to say. I just don't let a lack...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    This is mainly a response to the first part of the post I am replying to. To be clear. Putin is scum, his oligarch enablers are scum and the invasion is a war crime (also a very stupid thing to...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Greg, your knee is jerking hard enough to hit you in the face there. She isn't spreading anti-vax propaganda. She is snarking at the heatless swine that are "and don't care much if a certain percentage die off."...
  • Commented on Omicron
    Yes, I gathered it was not unusual and all in fun. At least your fictional counterpart seems to have good survival sense. I sometimes run the tabletop RPG Cyberpunk (from which the computer game Cyberpunk 2077 is descended). The setting...
  • Commented on Omicron
    On an unrelated note. Lieutenant Stross? https://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20211210#.YbMtqL3P2Cp...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    I liked RAF Luton's take on it myself (This being a satire account, not an actual RAF base). https://twitter.com/RAF_Luton/status/1467447277413453824?s=20...
  • Commented on PSA: Publishing supply chain shortages
    With reference to the comment in there "If you've got a commercial idea, drop me a line and we'll talk business." I am no artist, but evidently at least one person with art skills is pondering the idea of maps....
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    The sequel is just as deranged. It riffs off the whole hollow earth and lizards masquerading as people nonsense. There is also an amusing sub-plot about a cult of apple tech users that, literally, worship Steve Jobs. But I would...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    With all due respect. If you don't like someone's conversation then don't talk to them. Telling other people not to talk, when they are plainly enjoying the exchange, is more than a tad out of line....
