    Don't forget both state and federal governments claiming that the problem we have too much freedom and democracy, so they need to pass new laws to prevent that problem interfering with their governing. In 2016, then 2018 and again in...

    What impressed me was at the exact same time that the Liberals and Nationals are telling the uppity abos where to stick their desire not to get screwed (again), they are claiming that the vicious greenies have been stopping the...

    If you are interest the BOM have a warnings page that also covers fire weather: http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/warnings/ All sorts of responsible people are trying to explain to the media that by "unprecedented" they mean "not like it was in the past"....

    The problems with solar roofing tiles... Yes, and :) Tile roof layout tends to favour lots of triangular planes because that is easy to do with tiles. Sadly when you cut a solar tile diagonally you end up with two...

    How much of that trade is going to continue in such a scenario though? I say very little, I thought you were saying the US will be fine despite being utterly dependent on it continuing. My reading is that at...

    the US would be pretty close to being fine on the oil front... large parts of the rest of the world would have big problems. You understand that the "rest of the world" can be thought of as the...

    underestimate the scale of distances in Asia Two minor counterpoints: We have spent a lot of effort to make moving large amounts of stuff in and out of Asia quick and easy. The difference between a million tonnes of t...

    how do you keep the food for yourself? ... isolated enough that the starving populations of the cities can't get to you. Most of us simply can't do that. And the rest mostly don't see the point? What *is*...

    Slightly related, forcing kids who have perfect pitch to learn to play the piano should be recognised as child abuse. It's almost physically impossible to tune a piano because there are 200+ strings that all interact with each other and...

    I was only speaking about staff attitudes and official school policy. Many parents would have said the same when I was at school. Even 40 years ago it would be a rare teacher who outright said to the parents that...

    I have children in school and I can report that the staff are very responsible in not tolerating any form of bullying. Are you sure that it is not merely that *your* children are not being bullied to the point...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    bullying was regarded as 'character forming' and the victim was at least as often blamed, either for provoking it or for not standing up against odds of 10:1 Somewhat to the contrary, it was suggested I leave a private school...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    The author, John Marsden... in the media with the view that bullying, being normative, has a positive function. for me this is just an explanation of how conformity factories work His view is common among school staff, I suspect...

    Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah". I always find it amusing to hear it in church, mistaken for a pious hymn to The Lord Almighty or even to Holy Matrimony, when the text of the later verses is actually much more about kinky...

    I took the russian bot's comments to be making parallels between the western powers imposition of civilisation on other places, quite possibly including the recent democratisation of Afghanistan and the freeing of Iraq. Bulldozing graveyards, destroying temples, banning teaching of...

    Genocide... Pardon for my frank expression here but this is a profound nonsense right here. Genocide is very targeted and very concrete extermination of very certain people, One common argument made is that if even a single individual from the...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    If such "genocide" is true, how come there are still millions of people Genocide very rarely consists of literal extermination of every last one. Especially since there's no test for the sort of characteristics that are usually the target of...

    I work with a Jewish convert, he married a nice Jewish girl and some of his enculturation experiences have been the obvious ones... to someone who knows the history. He's a nice enough guy, but I suspect that like a...

    I suspect you are seeing survivor bias, because the people who are still in Russia are the ones who did not leave or die, or descended from same. SFReader sees it the other way because he's in the group that...

    34% of the electorate actually did vote for"leave" I didn't realise it was only the registered voters who would be leaving, I thought the plan was that the whole country would exit the EU (exit sanity, whatever)? Which means...

    If you don't understand that nations and states are two totally different things You know that old saying about how if you can't explain it you don't understand it yourself? Well, you've been running round here criticising everyone else for...

    19 is a great song, the version by The Herd is my favourite, but there are an awful lot of covers... seems to be popular. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vsi2TtRfejA Also, the whole genre of love songs is full of "those lyrics... they don't...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    I wasn't thinking of actual satirical songs, but that too. "White colonial middle-class anarchist" at least partly just for the title - I've often heard the intro at meetings "I'm a white woman from {rich suburb} who went to {elite...

    If you refuse to do even the tiny amount of research that is "type a keyword into google" it's very hard to have a meaningful discussion with you. Talking about "aborigines" in Australia is like talking about "europeans" if by...

    FWIW I'm mostly reciting anecdotal knowledge from hanging out with a bunch of generally Wiradjuri people who are the Australian equivalent of "urban Maori". They grew up in Sydney, their parents often did too, but they have cultural ties to...

    Ah, so you're using a primarily economic measure, where people are worth $US0-$10/pound depending on condition and location. That's very post-cold-war of you. I suggest that your conception of nation-ness is partly Westphalian since you seem to be assuming borders...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    states are not nations. Greenland is a nation, the Kurds are a nation.... the Confederacy was not a nation Can you possibly list the criteria you're using to make those grand pronouncements? Clearly it's not the Westphalian or UN...

    I should make a playlist of popular songs where the lyrics don't match. Chumbawamba "I get knocked down" which is about how stupid it is to get drunk and go out doing stupid things, "I spent my last ten dollars"...
