  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    Thanks for the link. This comment was a real laugh out loud moment: "a) Never again in your life will you have the chance for this kind of god-tier ninth-level casting of Malicious Compliance"...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    The left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing seems the simplest answer and I agree it's not going to be a good situation for the movie. I'd heard of Paizo and Pathfinder but knew nothing of the...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    and replying to my own post one of the things he can do with the black box is to vary the processor speed which produces an effective time distortion effect. Slow time down when in danger, speed it up through...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    Another vote for Bob :-) Bob is a computer programmer/engineer, super-geek whos mind ends up in a black box used to pilot a stl space ship. He uses his skills to build his own VR world to stop from going...
  • Commented on Make Up a Guy
    I have and I'm finding it hilarious that yet another pointy haired boss is/are clueless about the relationship they have with their customers and the companies that use the OGL. You have a very varied community of players that are...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    You could try here as a starting point for russian views on the war in Ukraine: https://twitter.com/wartranslated Whether you believe their translations of russian output is your choice. Here there's a clip of a russian tv show: https://twitter.com/wartranslated/status/1599372868130783238 The quote...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    For the labour party to be elected to goverment in the UK it needs to appeal to non-traditional labour voters, this is due to the following: the FPTP system, Labour losing Scottish voters thus MPs, the tory party gerrymandering in...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    To take this back to the original topic; although Charles is now king he's yet to be crowned. This means we'll get to experience another orgy of royalism when the coronation occurs next year....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    There's a part of me which thinks Liz was on the way to joining the choir invisible but by force of will was hanging until Boris got kicked out of No. 10...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    And this piece in the guardian is all about the increase in pests as soil temperatures rise: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/sep/06/us-farmers-face-plague-of-pests-as-global-heating-raises-soil-temperatures I know UK frosts have been good for killing off insect pests that can't cope with the drop in temperatures but that's...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    I feel like I'm stating the obvious but I'm going to say it anyway. The UK is run by individualists who are incapable of intellectually or emotionally understanding that there are problems that can only be solved collectively. For them...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    Here's the view from a life long LibDem voter, I find them to be more pragmatic and less ideologically driven than the other two main parties. From the left they believe in the welfare state and trying to mitigate the...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    The UK has a very services based economy and for this to work it requires enough people with enough disposable income to keep it running. As peoples finances reduce due to increases in food, energy, mortgage, and rent they'll have...
  • Commented on The ends of education
    From the Uk side of the pond I was going to ask if Liz Cheney could do the same as Bernie Saunders (Independent but votes with the Democrats) but in her case vote with the Republicans. But I've just read...
  • Commented on The ends of education
    I've had a very varied 35 year career in IT but for the last 23 years I've worked on SAP. This was across functional, technical and abap programming. From the current SAP education website adding up the cost of all...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    It seems my memory was wrong regarding which version I started with D&D, the fact it was back in '81 is my excuse. Having checked wiki it looks like it was AD&D 1st edition when I started. My original character...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    I can't possibly comment on which eldritch horror I think truss or sunak are. Though I am sure whichever one wins the rest of us are going to lose....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Backs away, slowly, carefully, and with respect :-)...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Apology accepted but really, no worries, I've been around the internet long enough not to take anything like this too seriously....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Yes, my tongue was firmly ensconsed in my cheek with that line and in no way meant to be insulting. It merely being a wry attempt at humour regarding our respective ages and Whitroths nickname(?)...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Me, the seagull, nope. I'm curious to know why you think I am so I can stop doing it. Although the villain of the play I still hold to Iago's line "But he that filches from me my good name...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    We're not all old enough to be ancient silver dragons :-) Our group went from 2nd to 3.5 and now 5 though we're having to play across skype. Our DM does like to throw something different at us. We're currently...
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    I think The Expanse TV show seems to be the closest we'll ever get to a Traveller movie....
  • Commented on Crimes against Transhumanity
    Me and my group has the same opinion as you. It does seem to cpture the feel of the played game. Certainly the "you make plans that fail" line is very true to what happens with our group :-) The...
  • Commented on Roe v Wade v Sanity
    You're right-ish. I found this article: https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/politics/northern-ireland-assembly-election-2022/assembly-election-what-happens-if-alliance-finishes-second-41611610.html It seems it's a bit more complicated and agree with the Alliance viewpoint that it needs to be reformed....
  • Commented on Roe v Wade v Sanity
    I'm not sure that the chaos scenario can actually happen by the terms of the Good Friday agreement or not the way you think it would. This is a quote from this site: https://education.niassembly.gov.uk/post_16/snapshots_of_devolution/gfa/power_sharing "cross-community power sharing at executive level,...
  • Commented on Roe v Wade v Sanity
    Banning pregnancy tests would be curtailing a perfectly good revenue stream. As the US seems to be going full Gilead how about the following instead: All purchases of pregnancy tests need to be registered. All results of said tests need...
  • Commented on Holding pattern 2022 ...
    From context I think OGH was refering to how long they reigned not to their gender. QEII is coming up for 70 years, Lady Jane Grey managed 9 days. That's more than a slight difference :-)...
  • Commented on Behind the Ukraine war
    A bit slow to reply but The Timelords use black holes to power their society....
  • Commented on Bad news day
    With all the talk of fast-tracking Ukraines entry into the EU we shouldn't forget there are already a number of other states including those in the western Balkans that have stalled due to the EU's previous reluctance to expand; even...
