    Also, please imagine some way to put things back afterwards. That's an extension to dark energy theory, but otherwise you have a drive that you turn it on and after a while there's now some light years distance between the...

    If you mean "enough dark energy to produce a large distortion in the density of space" then holy shit that's a lot of energy. The expansion of the universe that's being discussed is less than 1% per million years from...

    what does that area of dark energy look like from the outside Nothing. It looks just like the dark energy that permeates everything now, but brighter. It could be many, many orders of magnitude brighter and still be invisible because...

    the tragically late I'm sorry, but that sounds too much like "chronically late" and just makes me think of the "he'd be late for his own funeral" line. Somehow I can imagine him trying to arrange for that deliberately....

    Australia has several different sets of restrictions on internet search results. Most bluntly there is a list of banned websites which may not appear in Australia and there are various degrees of suggestion that they not be excerpted or copied...

    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/commentisfree/2021/mar/01/without-an-inquiry-scott-morrisons-ministerial-standards-dont-amount-to-a-hill-of-beans Makes the point that until the Prime Munster names names and declares whether his "ministerial standards" apply every male minister in his government must be regarded as an alleged or presumed rapist, including him. I wish more media would...

    It could very easily be a manual override. Google has come to the attention of management right now and Australia's libel/defamation laws are savage. Rupert's politicians would just love a cudgel like that to beat google during the extortion negotiation...

    Magazine distribution is where those choices happen, newsagents stock them on a sale or return/destroy basis. That's why you can sometimes buy them cheap without the front covers... the covers are what gets returned. Distributors costs are mostly up front,...

    I thought there was a limit to the insane ramblings per go Nope, you're free to post as much as you like....

    I did think while writing that that many survivalists might find a crotchety 80 year old too much of a physical threat to be worth the risk of attacking. God help them if he had some sort of weapon, like...

    New Scientist just offered me a discounted subscription to "The Spectator Australia" which seems related to "The Spectator" UK, but the AU website is batshit right wing crazy talk. Headlines like "try to be less white", "Matthew, Mark, Luke and...

    I barely stopped moving at all until I was stood in front of the actual doctor. I was quite expecting to be outside again in no more time than it took to walk out, but once he had stabbed me...

    For those fortunate enough to have a more-or-less working government, they have somehow found themselves asking quite seriously "is a 33% chance of climate catastrophe acceptable?" and they are apparently expecting a lot of people to say "not high enough"....

    When we moved into the new factory that my boss built specifically to suit the company I work for, there was an issue with condensation on some air conditioning pipes at insulation breaks where they bent upwards to go through...

    Meanwhile in Australia we're being told that a queue will be arranged once they are ready to start thinking about how to vaccinate people. Apparently I'm in a group, and that group is the "yes, but not yet" group. Which...

    And for all you owl afficionados, news that even quite large owls live in some cities. I didn't realise that the reason I so often see them with half a possum is so they can have breakfast before they go...

    That's ok, a survivalist will be happy to kill you and loot your sewing machine....

    charcoal gray colored strips for data and beige for user stuff. Easier to explain. Have had repeated experience of people plugging non-critical things into bright red "ESSENTIAL COMPUTERS ONLY" strips and power outlets. Including in a hospital. The solution that...

    Aren't those kind of power strips a fairly recent development? They were common in ~1990, because relatively recently my 1990 one stopped working. Before 1980 I can't vouch for, because I have no recollection of power setups from that era...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I assumed everyone would just buy a power strip like this and fit a round-prong plug to the lead....

    Slightly terrifyingly when I actually searched for https://www.google.com/search?q=free+online+secure+encrypted+blockchain+cloud+torrent+storage I got a bunch of hits that look like the thing I actually wanted. Apparrently buzzword soup works....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    There is at least one "communal backup" system where everyone basically torrented encrypted chunks of everyone else's backups, but the search space is so polluted now that I can't see any sign of it. You could get a less reliable...

    Aotearoa has just had someone determined to prove the truth of Rob Muldoon's quip, by coming to visit apparently entirely so she could whine about quarantine and pull the whole denier/antivaxx/soveriegn citizen/entitled whining schtick. https://thespinoff.co.nz/media/25-02-2021/who-is-lucinda-baulch-the-australian-who-refused-a-covid-test/ Article is worth reading for...

    What's saved us so far isn't praying in church, but scientists working in a cooperative fashion to understand and counter the enemy, humanitarian groups working to feed people, and both cops and disciplined nonviolent actors keeping the peace Yes....

    Someone who sounds a lot like JBS' alter ego wrote this piece: https://www.alternet.org/2021/02/ayn-rand/ Behold! Death rides upon a pale horse — and Death is a Republican. The coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 500,000 people in the United States....

    The easy way would be to make it react with the gas inside the bubble, thus solving two problems :) It might not be too hard to (say) inflate the thing using oxygen or a light hydrocarbon, which would react...

  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    what a giant god-bird ate. Yeah, I lean towards the albatross or vulture model of a soaring bird that eats very little. Dolphins or tuna would be obvious snacks but there are already apex predators keeping their populations under control....
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    Possibly giant albatrosses? With radar they could surf waves in the air rather than the ones on the water, and feed on parachutists and other large flying beasts?...
