  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Word! I really love the esthetics of steampunk and/or late 19th early 20th century (I'm known for now and then going out on the town dressed up in frock coat, cane, high hat and the works) but I am too...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Stewardship would be a better word but if it says "Dominion" in the KJV then for a lot of xtians then dominion it is......
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Have in my mind something I heard once, about the measurement error you get when you truncate pi to the available decimals in a standard pocket calculator... The error when you calculate the circumference of our galaxy would then be...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    The use of that word ("Tactical") in any other circumstance than in military history or in the education of military personnel always conjures up images of mall ninjas of the 101st Chairborne Division to me......
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    About PTSD - there has been some studies that have (at least somewhat)successfully treated PTSD with the help of MDMA/ecstacy. Due to current lawmaking I assume research in that area/direction is a bit complicated though......
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    About reindeer meat, reminds me of something my ex told me. Before we met she had a relation with a New Yorker trying a life i Sweden. When studying swedish for immigrants he used to sneak into a nearby high...
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    I read about the 5G phobics buying Faraday cages for their routers and then complaining about wifi not working any longer... Merchandise for the gullible will always find a market I'm afraid...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    As in "Make homosexuality illegal - I want to feel dirty again..." (said IIRC by Chris Addison on Mock the Week some years ago)...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    It fascinates me a lot hearing about all the very special tricks drivers develop to handle cranky old cars I once had a German built Ford which could only cold start with the help of a screwdriver, starter fluid and...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    Since I try to avoid unnecessary trips into town currently (living in a suburb), my daughter (living in town) bought DLD from the bookstore I support. We were going to meet up later in the day as she is learning...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Yes, but since when does the current (predominantly American) Evangelical Jesusism (tm) have anything more than a very passing acquaintance with Christian dogma? (/Snark)...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Insert obligatory "Every time I listen to Wagner I get this irresistible urge to invade Poland..."...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    "Obsession"? Never heard of the MAMIL (MiddleAged Man In Lycra)? Here in Stockholm Sweden there are entire stretches of inner city biking lanes that are infamous for being reenactments of Tour de France every rush hour. And quite lethal for...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Well, at least with the aliens bit Harry Turtledove has got you covered... (World War series)...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    A friend of mine worked before retirement at the Swedish Television Company as responsible for incoming newsclips from news channels abroad. Already in the late 90s for every 24h period, they received over 40h sendable material. I can't imagine the...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Here is a little question for those of you who have experience of visiting the opposite hemisphere (northern/southern) of where you normally live... Does your "direction gland" become (at least temporarily) confused when arriving or does your (if any) inherent...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I remember reading in a post order catalogue once (from a company directed to farmers etc) and on one page stumbled on to this "Calf delivery machine". Chains with hooks attached to a big winch. Fascinating when you suddenly get...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Adjacent to this is the eternal problem with control measures - how to minimize fraud in benefits systems/health care etc. I know that behavioural experiments repeatedly shows that most humans are more than willing to accept punishments for cheaters that...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    Not to be (too) nitpicking... Shouldn't it be "I ATEN'T DEAD"?...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    (And withroth @ 160) What about the old adage about "A VP should be a sitting presidents best life insurance"...? (Explanation for anyone that needs it: to prevent assassinations, palace coups etc the president should choose as a vp someone...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    At least on a computer, if you open up e g Google Maps or another map site I think they often give your starting position as where your ISP goes public with your internet connection. With a phone your GPS...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Brilliant - Not... Now when everyone who can is working remotely the internet in Stockholm and eastern Sweden goes down. Working in helpdesk so a million calls about no network atm... It's slowly coming back but still not 100% capacity...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    Immediate check of my medicine cabinet did thankfully not reveal any ACE inhibitors (I had them a couple of years ago) Quick search on the web gives examples from serious publications like Lancet etc so the problem definitely is suspected...
  • Commented on Public appearances in a time of pandemic
    A fellow Type II and Hypertensionist here... I completely understand your decisions in this situation, but does anyone know if the risks are the same for those who "have it but have it under control"? My (medicated) blood pressure is...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    My thoughts are more that the goal is to keep as normal as possible your personal life and habits, no "active" hunting - only passive automated systems already in place......
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Is it too late to be on topic? My idea for a rTV show: A bunch of people with heavy presence online competes in "Staying Off the Grid" i e without changing (too much) of their daily routines/lifestyles the goal...
  • Commented on So you think you can be a reality TV producer
    Speaking of an eventual independence for Scotland, I have completely fallen for their officially unofficial national anthem "Flower of Scotland" (one of the most beautiful anthems in the world imo). But listening to live recordings on youtube I can't help...
  • Commented on Introducing Dead Lies Dreaming
    Sadly the "Install with this admin account credentials I provide now" doesn't always work as it should. When/if the installer calls up another installation (auxilliary programs, needed subsystems etc) this new installation often seems to be run with the logged...
