    But in a different universe? Fuck....
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Much less likely. I just was in the position as a gunner on an MRAP where I thought a laser was the third or fourth level on the "escalation of force" heuristic taught to soldiers. My truck commander talked me...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Yes, that's true. I don't have any real argument against that. Although police might shoot at a green laser also....
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    >> I'm getting the feeling that everyone's blithely ignoring that statement, and deciding I'm an Amurkan Psycho with a laser pointer instead of a gun. .... You're getting piled on, for some frankly mall-ninja esque opinions of how to fight...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    I have, by various different circumstances, been working as manual labor in once, a shop that printed large mailer, and second, printed the same sort of thing, only on cardboard. The printers that are as big as a tractor trailer(articulated...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    What happened was the judge allowed the defendant to turn a raffle-like mechanism that would determine the 12 jurors that would deliberate out of the 18 that were sitting for the case. Normally a court clerk would do this, but...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Hawley hasn't been accused of anything like that. You may be thinking of Matt Gaetz....
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    > ... and we know this happened because some people were released. We don't have any knowledge of how many were snatched, by who, or what happened to all of them. Without a full and frank discussion of those events,...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    As terrifying and line-crossing as this was, nobody was disappeared into a hole, a la the Gestapo or Pinochet. Many of the victims of this were released without charges, and to the best of my knowledge people charged with felonies...

  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Do Muslims not condemn terror attacks, or does your media simply fail to report when every ordinary mosque/imam and Muslim nonprofit/NGO loudly condemns them, and then right wing pundits simply repeat the assertion the same way that ours put homeless...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Some unrelated thoughts. 1. While I am an advocate of nuclear disarmament, I imagine Ukraine right now is really regretting sawing off their antlers. 2. I wonder if the Queen's reputation will take a nosedive after her death and the...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    Like all "gender critical" people, you are forgetting (likely) or erasing the existence of trans men, most of which currently possess a vagina and usually a uterus and ovaries also. TERFs love to erase or deny the existence of trans...
  • Commented on PSA: Publishing supply chain shortages
    I will sell an NFT of the map; I'm sure everyone agrees that is completely aboveboard...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    So if the worldwalking is in arbitrarily large steps, what happened in timelines 1.5, 2.5, and 3.5? Are they also having worldwalkers influencing their timelines?...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    So I'm seeing a lot of ideas for colonizing adjacent timelines, but I'm not seeing a whole lot of ideas for mitigating climate change in the inhabited timelines. A few things: - Any air travel can surely go through somewhere...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    The armament of Juggernaut is described as "Fifty kiloton nuke-pumped X-ray lasers, with dirtied-up eighty kiloton EMP mines as a whisky chaser." Plus the 200 megaton SLEDGEHAMMER bomb. I read a book on SDI lasers when I was a teenager,...

    No way that would be legal in Panopticon US....
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    General Ecker: I find your attempts to find an explanation for everything consistently make it look worse, Mr. Stross! ;) Great conclusion, though I am slightly disappointed Sonia Gomez didn't find a way to get herself shoved out of an...

  • Commented on Fossil fuels are dead (and here's why)
    . And referencing Nojay at #240: As for SMRs they're basically PowerPoint confidence tricks designed to extract "development" cash from Green-obsessed governments. That wikipedia article does look awfully press-releasey....

    > video Those are fullsize M-16s, notice the conventional non-telescoping buttstock. The new ones do have all picatinny rails instead of any fixed sight though.

  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    Why? The SA-80 is a bit shorter than the Lee-Enfield, but what was so different that it required a complete re-write? FM 22-5 didn't get a complete re-write when the M1 gave way to the M-14 or when the M-14...
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/aug/23/portland-oregon-clashes-protests-proud-boys-antifascist Different source, not implying the one you provided is bad, but this one has a short video. So from I've been able to gather from the internet, what happened was a case of too little, too late. There were...

    Instead of using your $50,000 to buy a new electric car (never mind the carbon footprint of manufacturing* a NEW car, the fact your old car will continue to emit carbon until it is literally broken from whoever you sold...

    Whole lot of people thinking there is an individual solution to a systemic problem. Yelling at a few left-of-center old men and women for not replacing their current housing and transportation arrangements when our governments are not even on track...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DbzbIGkPW-o TL;DW: Youtuber orders a laser on ebay advertised for "medical use" Contrary to the advertisement which says it is within legal and safety limits, it is a *two watt* laser. With some tinkering, he makes it into a four...
