    A wealth tax was in force in France through the 1950's & early 60's. It really, really didn't work. Taxes on transactions ( Income, "Purchase"(VAT), land-transfer etc. ) are much easier to see & enforce....

    A 90% tax-rate just drives very inventive chaeting. We've been through this before. Waht yuou need is a normal top rate of 40% & maybe a 60% band for the super-rich. And really tough enforcement on those who try to...

    Damian Certainly all too possible if nothing is done at all....

    The most recent IPCC report, was IIRC in response to a request as to "what if?" 1.5 °C could be achieved, hence the correctly alarmist tone. The object is, really, to try to prevent a 2 °C rise .... which...

    EC @ 1049 What his fanatical followers (like Dawkins etc.) This is where i think you are shouting mad, because Dawkins is eminently sane. Note I didn't say he was correct, all the time. As usual, I am in the...

    allynh @ 1045 SHUDDER Yes, Amerika really DOES love its guns more than it's chidlren, doesn't it? Problems with gub=ns, problems with lots of guns, problems with guns in the wrong hands. And the supposed "answer" is .. more guns....

    EC @ 1038 Wall-to-wall cobblers. It is well-known that the body of knowledge called: "Evolutionary Biology" is changing & growing all the time as fresh information is gathered. Non eof which invalidates Mr D's inotial observations & tentative conclusions. No,...

    allynh @ 1030 Oh, REALLY? I'm assuming you are simply trolling ... In answer to the rubbish you have written. 1. A new species - The Marbled Crayfish. 2. Graduation between species in a ring, until the neds meet &...

    EC Pamspermia is still AFAIK a possibly-valid hypothesis - & Hoyle suggested that it was not only possible but likely - a valid, if unconventional position to take. BU Hpyle flatly denied "Darwinian" evolution for the basic simpe forms to...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    EC @ 1013 WRONG AGAIN & so was Hoyle. The origin of life was never, ever discussed in Darwin's work. It is not & never has been an "aspect of Evolution". This is a standard ploy by the Cretinists, conflating...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    EC @ 1008 Well, bollocks to you too, if you are going to be like that. WHERE did I mention the Origin of life on Earth or Panspermia? NEITHER of which are within the remit of Evolution, which is what...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    EC @ 999 Erm, NO Hoyle completely misunderstood the mathematics & statistics & refused to accept Evolution - which is why ( I think ) he was "cast out". And he provided no reasons or arguments for his creationist views,...

    EC @ 969 The car that ran you down was AI-controlled, therefore it was your fault. We've already had that one - which, fortunately, backfired on uber, the bastards. Unfortunately a cylist was killed, because the machines sensors could not...

    EC @ 921 starting by making goods last much longer and engineering them for repairability And those of us that already do this get penalised …. “Can’t get spares for that any more” “That’s out of date” Your car is...

    Whitroth @ 913 ONLY 7-10 years old? The sheer manipulative nature of the more intelligent (oops!) cats is scary at times. Certainly my current rodent-operative, a 10-year old Lilac-popint Birman tom is seriously manipulative & even more tham most cats,...

    s-r @ 891 I CAN READ - & I read what you said & it's still bollocks. I would LOVE an explanation of how the Nobel Prizes "promte Western Democracy". Go on - make a case, if you can ......

    s=r @ 888 Which is no wonder because the Nobel prize is the primary instrument of promoting western democracy ideas in the world, for good or bad. BOLLOCKS I have just counted the number of Russian ( NOT "Soviet" )...

    Geoff Hart @ 862 Early strong AIs are likely to be more like idiot savants: brilliant beyond human capabilities in their area of expertise, but morons in other areas. Or, perhaps more appropriately, more “intelligent” than a human in one...

    Troutwaxer @ 798 but it's becoming obvious that before we can go much further in certain fields, we need a paradigm shift of some kind For the umpteenth time: The Vacuum Catastrophe ( Gen Relty  QM ) ?? @...

    hetreomeles I've shot a 1926 rifle, for instance Yes, well, the only rifle I have ever used was an SMLE ( modified for single shot ) Lee-Enfield.303. Provided you kept it maintained & your shoulder could take it, the thing...

    @ 161-164 Agree with all of the above, contradictory as that might seem. We ought ot do it ( I think ) but it depends not on CHarlie ( For reasons he has given ) but on whether the other...

    Neil W @ 771 Well, the whistling thing is obviously bollocks, but the gun/sex fetish is all too likely. It would "explain" the behaviour of the US' rabid NRA wingnuts, certainly. Which reminds me, I recently heard a comment that...
  • Commented on Do my Homework
    Moz @ 757 Actually, no. The rabid brexir=teers long for a US-style reactionary ( Wrongly labelled "cinservative" ) republic. With themselves in power, natch. Pigeon @ 759 Those people are equally mad - they are either romantic "Saxons" ( Who...

    Heteromeles @ 744 One other reason for "suff" especially actual records surviving is that writing wasn't invented until the very beginnings of the Bronze Age - And that the moment it was invented, the numner of records available went up...

    Whitroth / Graydon 148/149 Yes, as you say the whole "Neo_Confedarate" thing is plainly a just-about legal coup. It could be worse - it could be Turkey. See here for info @ 154 Mass-production of HOG's? Spare blood for the...

    Graydon @ 734 That's the Vimes Boots argument, again, isn't it? { Hence my claim that keeping my Land-Rover is actually morr environmentally freindly than letting shit Khan scrap it & buying a "new" or newer car, that I then...

    Pigeon @ 693 “Dr Who” – yes, well I too have prejudices on this – the ORIIGNAL Doctor, Hartnell, was always slightly sinister & although Troughton was good ( A greatly under-appreciated actor ) none of the successors was any...

    JBS @ 132 How would that work in a case of political appointees involved in simple criminal misconduct prior to entering office, possibly continuing after they'd taken office. Well, this is a USA reference .... is it possible to remove...
