    AND As Charlie was saying, imitating Tom Lehrer - "Who's next? ... Contraception / "gay" rights /equality of marriage ... the works. Echoing the ultra-evangelical arseholes pusing this & the "delightful" Jean Calvin - It was as if all the...

    Duffy Yes - I'm obviously not a USAian, but .... the drive towards "States Rights" by your Supreme Arseholes is reminiscent of that period & worrying for that reason...

    TIME ( & Past-time? ) ... for Charlie to update & comment on his previous tread, perhaps? Since the right to privacy has gone. A government or agency, at any level, can now snoop on anything & interfere .......

    H Go back to what ( I think ) Charlie said before ... The "justification" for this decision is the striking down of a supposed "Right to Privacy" ... Which opens several barrelfuls of writhing poisonous worms....

    The News is Dire ... - the USA is now heading straight into fascism, unless the "D's" can scrape a win this autumn. "What is to be done?" Here, the news is ... dubious. Bo Jon-Sun is clearly fucked-over, but...

    Vulch From the numbers, it looks as though a ot of actual "Conservative" - as opposed to "tory" voters sat on their hands at home - which is, itself a result of sorts....

    Just bought & started in on Where Song Began. Fascinating & clearly a work in progress, as well ... As for "Old Lands" the plateau-islands in the far N of Brazil, like Roraima are, IIRC, populated by carnivorous plants &...

    H Did you say PYTHONS? - IIRC, Burmese Pythons have an "attitude problem", unlike Indian Rock Pythons or Boas, but like Anacondas .......
  • Commented on Books I will not write: BIGGLES!!
    Rbt Prior Yes-and-No ... The US "R's" drive to fascism has a very strong Evangleical-christian component, along the lines of "Kinder, Kirche, Küche" - which seems to be entirely missing over here. Probably, because if they did, it would immediately...

    H @ 279 NO Given the philosophical/scientific enquiry that went on in the "muslim" world approx 750-1250 CE or the previous classical "Greek" enquiries from Socrates onwards ( & even before that ) the "christian framework" won't stand detailed enquiry....

    H "Vegetation on a Red Dwarf World" Tidally locked - SURE about that? What about a Mercury-analogue, where the day is (IIRC) 3/2 times the year length, or some similar simple-ratio "complication", meaning that one would get a day-night cycle,...

    skulgun I get the same reaction when I ever hear a "popular" radio station or about 95%+ of the social media I occasionally see or hear. The Noise-to-Signal ratio is at least 3 & I'm often not sure there is...

  • Commented on Abolish the monarchy!
    Understanding is not required for acceptance - I really, REALLY, REALLY don't like that, for reasons to do with cruel political & religious power that ought to be obvious. Translation: "You don't need to undestand out motives, peasants, just accept...

    Rbt Prior A deliberate return to the US Gilded age, driven by (some of) the ultra-rich & powerful, mostly out of greed & spite? That & the return of ultra-right politics, as psople forget the lessons of the past 120...

    Carole Cadwallader: There were at least four meetings between the main funder of the Brexit campaign and the Russian government. There are reasonable grounds to believe there were many more. Fact. Right .... Will ALL the non-fascist "press" PLEASE publicise...

    Charlie @ 155 Beryllium is also used in significant quantities, as an alloy component, in the railway industry. Almost all OHLE "knitting" is about (IIRC) 2% Be - improves the tensile strength enormously, without degrading the conductivity. Because of the...

    EC @ 1018 IIRC, many vegans have to be very careful, as their diets are all-too-often deficient in vital trace substances. I don't think this applies to Vegetarians, as the necessary "things" are found in milk/cheese/eggs (usually) Doesn't bother me,...

    EC "NPK" is only really necessary if the soil is seriously deficient in those Elements - OR - if you want to accelerate plant growth, because the little buggers are "greedy feeders" - like Tomatoes, f'rinstance. I use Chicken Manure...
