  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    So I've been thinking about the comment made about good eldritch gods. I don't particularly care for the attempt to try to map Lovecraftian deities by human standards of good and evil the way Derleth did. I do agree that...
  • Commented on Happy Halloween!
    And it's dark: before Disney whitewashed him, Peter Pan was a psychopathic kidnapper ... It doesn't take much of a stretch to turn Pan into horror. Ridiculous power with a mercurial, childish temperament. Someone's getting sent to the cornfield....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Do you consider any of the rest of the series worth reading? The Rob S. Pierre character was not so much on the nose as up it. (French Revolution parallels, I get it! Sheesh.) What killed me is when the...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I like the premise of the show but there's only so much they could do on a budget like that back in the day. What I always thought would be interesting for the next War of the Worlds story is...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    The problem with Harrington is that she started out as a plausible, competent character with flaws and turned into a Mary Sue. "Her only problem is she just isn't aware of how awesome she is." Plus there was the tendency...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Regarding the masquerade, it's just super easy worldbuilding here. It's just like the real world, plus zombies. Or just like the real world, plus vampires. The first time this really struck me was with the War of the Worlds TV...
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    Random thoughts about all this. The first is a history of WWI where the guy spends the whole book telling you what happened and why but at the end he says that the causes presented still seem insufficient to explain...
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    Not sure if this is the correct venue to ask. I'm blocked from following Charlie on twitter and I'm not sure why because I don't think I've ever directly messaged him there, was mainly following for updates. I don't think...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
    On one hand, the whole pedo obsession with the British papers is a way to sell copies because it's a universal taboo and everyone can feel good about hating on child molesters. So it's the sort of thing you think...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
    Wars and rumors of wars. Having grown up in the modern age, it's hard to imagine that the mightiest kings of Earth were stuck with relying on traveler anecdotes for news of far-off lands. The bloody Mongol invasion could be...
  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    Re: truly getting motivated terrorists/freedom fighters. You're right, the people with imagination and smarts can usually find a way to engage with the society to get what they want. The problem comes when you have educated, bright people who want...
  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    RE: Unimaginative terrorists. Yup. I am forever grateful. Talk to a civil engineer about the sorts of vulnerabilities that a modern society is riddled with and you won't sleep at night. But actually you should feel better. The way I...
  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    That is an interesting point about the laser blinding weapons. Regarding poison gas in the light, it seems like it's just not worth the trouble of using. Laser weapons may not be as effective as we think? Terrorists aren't going...
  • Commented on Silence is ending (soon)
    https://youtu.be/9CO6M2HsoIA This video got some recent buzz. Like the curious yellow killer bots. Very plausible near future extrapolation of drone and AI tech for highly targeted killing....
