    Which surprises me enormously, as she was independently earning by then ( When we fist met, she was a postgraduate student ) & I never ever saw (IIRC) a joint tax return ... mind you, it's 29 years ago, &...

    Update for those who don't live / work in or near London HERE Please do read this wonderful piece of sarcasm from the excellent "Diamond Geezer" ... It shows the general feeling about Brexit this far South & how depressing...

    Ohh dear! You may not realise, but my "other half" is a professional financial person ( as in CTA ) & I may be higgorant of some historical aspects of financial regulation as regards females, but I've never heard her...

    Sounds good to me!...

    And/or that the Islands, esp Shetland/Orkney decided that they want no part of Ms S's schemes. Charlie is always telling me that I "don't understand". But, it's just as bad in reverse, because London - almost twice the size of...

    Ah yes, the "Russian Orthodox" seem to have reverted to the status they had 1905-14. As seen in the film of Doctor Zhivago" where the priests are marching alongside the cheering crowds & people enlisting ... until Yevgraf (Alec Guinness)...

    Ah the exception that proves the rule, I suppose. Persecuted by just about every other variety of christianity. The muslim equivalent appears to be the Ahmadi .....(?) { Still loonies, IMHO, but perfectly harmless, unlike all the others. )...

    Oops....

    Assuming the income WAS "joint" Custom & Practice as opposed to actual law? Individual judges? ( See very recent disgraceful scandal in the courts here in the last week over just this sort of issue, including domestic violence, incidentally )...

    That went away in living memory - err, no. Married Women's Property Acts .. 1870 & 1882...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    And, the "believers" have never com up with an answer to that, or its modern almost-equivalent: Is it Good because god says so, or is it good of itself ... with the extra proviso as to what happens when BigSkyFairy...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Except, that "when I hear the word spiritual, I reach for my revolver Physics textbooks"... The words "Spiritual" & "Spirituality" are used to cover almost unlimited quantities of drivelling bullshit - almost as bad as that of the "organised" religions,...

    H Beam Piper (?) As in great Ghu the Grandfather God ... because Gadolinium was essential to his McGuffin for a star-drive, IIRC.......
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Bow down and worship the holy Evolutionary Principle, as described by its prophet Darwin and enunciated so evangelically by its High Priest Dawkins. Errr .. 1: You are being sarcastic? 2: You actually believe the utter crap you have just...

    Truth Rising from Her Well to Shame Mankind Ohhh ... er missus! Nude, angry young female WITH A WHIP! Stop it, I like it, or something ...... Can I fall about laughing now? As for late-Victorian soft-porn it's very good,...

    Trying to be polite here, but it's going to be difficult ( I did not expect anyone with your level of delusion to be present in this discussion ) Finally, another question brought up in the thread was: if the...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Ah yes "Sin" Defined ( by me ) as "Something mu particular iteration of BigSkyFairy doesn't like", & sually for reasons of power, of course. R-believers seem to be unable to distinguish between "sin" & Evil - i.e. Hurting other...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Oh, I don't know, though, because that prompts a whole class, all named "something-or-other: END" As in: Sharp End / Round End / Blunt End / Ar you sure this is the End? ... Or even a la Micheal Bentine:...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Is this guy God, or merely a vicious blackmailer? I assume that was quite deliberate, because, as we should all know by now BigSkyFairy = "god" IS a vicious blackmailer. Equals Roko's Basilisk, which equals circular argument. Which means it's...

    Not so Relativity has, so far, passed all the experimental & observational tests thrown at it. And, so has QM. Um, err ...... [ But that is not what I interpret your meaning as, is it? ]...
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Perhaps answering Charlie's question? I suggest a combination of a really good imaginary story, allowing for the time at which it was first composed or collated, coupled with the Iron Law of Bureaucracy. Which then ossifies into an inevitably cruel...

    Remember, the God of Abraham was part of a pantheon, including his wife and three sons... As in: "Thou shalt have no other gods, but me" ?? Acknowledging that there ARE actually, other gods, but that the Bronze-Age goatherding...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Oh dear, I've just reminded myself, so I suppose I'd better pass it on. Is it just me, or are other people getting very unpleasant flash back/forwards glimpses of Norse mythology?...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Be very VERY VERY careful. Do not, under any circumstances confuse the bridge you have mentioned, which resembles the worlds'-girdling Tree [ Yggdrasil ] with the world-girdling serpent [ Jormundgand ]...

    She sqwarked and everyone was enchanted by the dog-n-pony show, and yet: she was right. Probably because no-one could decipher the tiny bit of signal, amongst all the noise & self-seeking attention? If you have a message - please put...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    Horribly reminiscent of a quote from L M Bujold: “Hey. Yours is no better. A god whose harvest of souls includes all whose last words were, ‘Ho, lads! Hold my ale and watch this!" ( "Penric & the Shaman" )...
