  • 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...
