    Unless the "F" 35 ( "F" is a horrible misnomer here, really, isn't it, if it's a "director" aircraft? ) is acting as "Queen Wasp" for a small swarm of drones, in which case: Scissors / Paper / Stone Um...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Well, the marines, due to their WWII experience, insist on a STOL just in case they have to take off from a beach or atoll again. I give you the Hawker Harrier, still used by USMC & unbelievably stupidly, abandoned...

    Unusal for you to have a broken linkie, but that one doesn't seem to work .......
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    "I know of no Frigate like a book to bear me to seas far away Nor any Corsair like a page of prancing Poetry" It's a re-quote from H Beam Piper, but I have no idea where the original came...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    And I thought I was bad .... Radio - listen to R4 for news & v occasionally for select progs - often on "Listen again" via this machine. R3 is playing as I tyoe this - I use it a...

    Oh dear ... Godwin alert TrumpAdolf hacked ecstasis,” Mr. Wheal it was said. “Light, sound, movement, repetition, scapegoating the other. People said if you haven’t been to his rallies, you’re missing what’s actually happening in this movement....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Did it again & pressed "send" too soon! I forgot to add, that since then, I learbt to ride (horse) do Archery (Unoversity blue) & fence ... Note that these are all individual activities, where you are competing against yourself,...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Sound part-familiar & part exact-opposite My senior (Grammar) school PE teacher was an utter bastard - ex-Army serjeant & arrogant with it, revelling in the "values" of the 1940's (the wrong way) I was assumed, by everybody to be fuck-all...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Thanks fopr that. Coupled with other people's replies & links it confirms what I suspected. Next - will it pass? I suspect not, but what do I know?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I encounterd this in London ... "The Boss" used to do audit/accounting/tax (prvious employer) for "The Jewish Chronicle" - who are based on the W edge of the City ... on-&-off police guard, sometimes armed, according to current security status....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Yes, the difference, real & important ( & one that the momentum fuckwits would do well to remember ) is the actual, real & quite profound difference between conservatives ( Please note the small "c" ) & Facists & crypto-fascists....

    All too frequently, including Charlie & me on one occasion ( Though neither of us was at our best health-wise at the time )(!)...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Bionics? And you were saying ... even allowing for journo-hype, this eems to be something probably siginificant....
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    This is starting to make me wonder if I have "mild" Aspergers, because your & mine & Pigeon's responses to school spurts & the "competitive / games" ethos is practically identical. How do I go about findng out - or...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    The fuckers made us do it as a military exercise, in competing groups, against the clock. They could hardly have found a more effective way to make it shit if that had been their explicit aim. You got it! "Team...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Even worse than mine - though once I went to Grammar School at age 11, I did start learning things I was officially taught. Before that ... no, not ever, other than a bitter lesson on appointed authority & their...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Can someone, concisely, bring the rest of us up to speed on the latest USSA "ACA" propsals? That one obviously quietly swam past in the night - I assume it's a systematic trashing of what remaining healthcare the US has?...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    And since no-one chased the Cromwell link, here it is explicitly: Because we CAN'T BE ARSED WITH YOUR OBSCURANTISM As it happens, the open, direct piece about Lilbune was very interesting - so why couldn't you say so in the...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Both agree & disagree I would say that at least 85% of Primary "teachers" are little better than licensed child-minders, reducing to approx 55% for later-primary ( 8-11 ) but, after that? Difficult to say now - the hange since...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Yeah, well, he ticks all three boxes .......
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Spanish / Catalan update Stupid doesn't even begin to describe this ... And if we go ahead with Brexit, we'll be facing these arrogant clowns over Gibraltar ..... Also, if Corbyn is PM, he'll roll over & expose his...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    And, for added fun there was the great Northern Bank Robbery ... which stole so much money that the existing notes were withdrawn & new ones issued - yes, really. See also here, from Mr Wiki ... O!>...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    I forgot ... "Scouts" a brilliant idea that has, as usual, been utterly subverted. My father was enthusiastic from his scholdays until WWII - encouraged me (!) to try it ... And I was immedaiately bullied & left after a...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Worse, this will play to the rabid brexiteers ( "The EU is collapsing! Get out now!" )...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Yes & - I've never heard of the Dark Triad until now, but - so true. NOW -apply this to ALL of our so-called political leaders. NOT ONE passes, with the possible exception of Cable ........

    RIGHT Syllabus to include: * Swimming (survival swimming, not speeding up and down lanes) YESSSS ... * Basic orienteering with map and compass (for when the cell infrastructure is down) Slight problem, there's a siugnioficant minority who are as useless...

    Egregious DELIBERATE LYING I've seen it ( & others ) The ACTUAL STATEMENT IS: "GW is real, just not quite as advanced as we previously thought, but it's still coming" Tranl=slated by deliberate public liars like Delingpole & Booker into:...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    YUCK There's also the notorious Orkney case, which was prompted by "psychiatrists" believeing their own fairy-tales ( as in Ellis' case ) & sectarian religious spite. In all of these cases, no-one seems to ask: "WHat happened to the children,...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Having checked the links, I would suggest not bothering. Deleuze seems to have been one of that special breed of French so-called "philosophers" who specialise in talking/writing hifalutin total bollocks, dressed-up in fancy clothes - see also Telhard de Chardin...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    And, as I've said before, the utter, total, classic example is "The Divine Comedy". Much mined by SF authors since, IIRC...
