    Elderly Cynic @ 1438: "Today's ethical question: Which is more improper? To thrust your penis into the hand of a young woman during a dormitory party, or to thrust your penis into a pig's head? Answers on the back of...

    David L @ 1311: North bound it was a nice drive. But I'd not want to do it at night. Now the drive from Mesa Verdi to about 2/3s of the way to Monument Valley was done at night. And...

    Charlie Stross @ 1291: South of SF, Highway 1 is picturesque but okay. North of SF … don't do it if you're on a schedule and especially don't EVER do it in a Lincoln Town Car. (I made that mistake....

    Greg Tingey @ 1225: Flow BatteriesIv'e been hearing they are coming "Real Soon Now" for the past 10 years at least - are they like fusion power, then? I don't see how they could be. Isn't fusion power always 50...

    Charlie Stross @ 1265: To get the scale thing across to people, you need to explain that what Americans call "suburbia" is "open countryside" in Europe. If they've even heard of exurbs, say "it's people who live 50km from the...

    Pigeon @ 1245: It was called the HS2300. Standard Chevette body with a Ventora 2.3 litre slant four in it. Went like buggery. There was an R version which was even faster. Never sold very many of them though. I've...

    Charlie Stross @ 1235: "why would anyone go to Boston?" Because Boston and New York are the main bastions of civilization in the US? (Ducks and runs …) Har! You think that because you've never been to North Carolina. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yx_LHSrjsCg...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    _Moz_ @ 1226: D'yareckon this is why some of the nuke kids here don't like pumped hydro? Bit hard to argue that we're gunna run outa water, especially coz pumped hydro can use seawater and the nuke kids haven't got...

    whitroth @ 1208: I see - of the US car company engineering training. Not an exaggeration. In the mid-eighties, waiting for the *second* transmission rebuilt on my Chevette (pronounced SHOVE IT), the guy helping his buddy at the trans shop...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    whitroth @ 1204: Had a friend who lived with his folks in Killeen, right next to Ft. Hood. I considered it *really* unlikely that their house would ever be burgled... he was an engineer in the SCA, and his full-sized...

    David L @ 1157: The problem with the the process that JBS mentioned is that specific group, NCWARN, isn't trying to "fix" or "make the plant" safer. Their entire goal is to stop it from being built or never start...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    David L @ 1115: "San Francisco Bay Area is not nearly as universally warm and sunny as the tourist advertisements would like you to believe, either. [/understatement]" What's that phrase? "The coldest winter I ever spent was an August in...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Jeff Fisher @ 1099: Bike lane construction projects in the US get sued and delayed for years. Sooner or later everything in the U.S. gets sued....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Graydon @ 1066: It's a mistake to ascribe the money to national actors. It's a post-national aristocracy acting to limit the capacity of states, much as you go from late antiquity to feudal because the magnates stopped obeying the emperor....

    David L @ 1050: "in the mid-nineties, Bellcore ... REQUIRED that a number be held unused after the account was closed for a minimum of 18 months." Then exchanges and area codes started running out of numbers due to pagers...

    paws4thot @ 1004: And, in that event, BoZo and Trumpolini will be insisting that the only people needed to run the habitat indefinitely will be politicians and kleptocrats! "Mr. President, we cannot allow a mineshaft gap!"     General "Buck" Turgidson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybSzoLCCX-Y...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    whitroth @ 949: "italics" And Scott, if you would put down any drinks you have, I'll suggest "San Francisco" by McKenzie, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bch1_Ep5M1s, with that great line about "warm San Francisco nights". The line about about "warm San Francisco nights" is...

    whitroth @ 947: Evaluating where I live? Please, a number of times this summer, here in the DC 'burbs, I was horrified to find it reminding me of when I'd lived in Austin, TX, with the temps.... Plus, this is...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Bill Arnold @ 944: Not Brexity but Bolton twitter fired and may something bad in one hour per reuters. I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with...

    Dave_the_Proc @ 942: Oh, I could easily do scorecards for at least half-a-dozen other regular posters! Cool! I await mine with "baited" breath....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Troutwaxer @ 818: Solar on the roof means sun on the roof, and that's a huge waster of potential cooling. The right way to do things is probably to plant hedges on the sides of a house, for insulation, then...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Nojay @ 749: Building nukes isn't hard, there's a lot (too much, probably) of regulatory bullshit that slows things down and increases costs but if they were being turned out like warships or aircraft in a shooting war then the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Charlie Stross @ 710: JBS, wrt. Edward VIII: He leads the country through WWII in exactly the same way George VI did in the real world. Coming in late, but your hypothetical doesn't fly: the dirty little never-admitted-in-public secret is...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    whitroth @ 691: Given the dark US money that went into the Leave campaign, this is a cross-Pond scheme, with the same desired end. Not all U.S. dark money came from the U.s., but U.S. PACs provided convenient camouflage for...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Barry @ 681: "Do y'all not understand what a hypothetical question is?" Yes, we do. Now, let's satisfy my totally off-topic whim and discuss how Brexit would be different if the Royal Dragon Corps existed. Are the dragons pro-Brexit or...
  • Commented on Normal service will be resumed eventually
    I'm sorry for your loss. Take time to grieve and to heal. When you are ready to write again we'll be here to read what you've written, no matter how long it takes....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Erwin @ 650: Aaigh. Mostly engineers here. So much arsing about with thermostats. It doesn't seem like it should be a genuinely intractable problem. It's not. The boss puts up a sign up next to the thermostat that says "The...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Nojay @ 601: "What would have happened IF Edward VIII had defied parliament and gotten away with it?" Parliament would have rolled over him like an avalanche. He might not have abdicated and remained King but the Monarchy would have...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Jim D @ 587: Is it me, or are Bojo's tactics (with both the EU and parliament) basically him threatening to shoot himself if he doesn't get his way? (Well, I guess with the EU it's more that he's threatening...
