  • Commented on Tragedy as Comfort Fiction: On Death, Drama, Disaster & Saving the World
    Just the smell. The panic. When I was 18 months old I had life saving surgery. Obviously I don't remember it but even now, nearly 60 years later, if I enter a hospital it takes just one smell of antiseptic...
  • Commented on Why I want Bitcoin to die in a fire
    OGH said "And we have a clear winner in the first-libertarian-to-show-up sweepstakes!" and also "And we have a clear winner in the frothing crank competition!" I think OGH is getting a tad bored with writing non-stop, and decided to take...
  • Commented on Trust Me (I'm a kettle)
    What you'll really want is a Faraday cage around your abode Actually, I've got (most of) one. No, I'm not paranoid, but I do have a Victorian detached house that used to be cold and hard to heat in winter,...
  • Commented on A likely tale
    I read it in the original collection and laughed my head off. However, this post suggests a new party game for SF fans - think of three or four unrelated things, and work out what story OGH might write based...
  • Commented on Making history personal
    Slept in: Morpeth Castle and Wolveton Gatehouse tower, former 1340s, latter "probably 14th C". Both Landmark Trust buildings, so renovated in the 20th C. Been in: In Egypt, the Great Pyramid, the Temple at Karnak, a tomb in the Valley...
  • Commented on A man walks into a bar
    @57: Hornets, well, they _were_ a slightly worrying encounter new Welwyn viaduct. Hornets can definitely be worrying: Giant Hornet Attacks Kill 28 in Southern Shaanxi. OK, not the same as our hornets, but ours are bad enough....
  • Commented on Rinse, Drain, Spin ... more Laundry!
    Arthur C. Clarke wrote about early cataract surgery patients, where the lens was removed and either not replaced, or a glass lens was used (I don't recall which) and they were able to see ultraviolet. A friend of mine was...
  • Commented on Rinse, Drain, Spin ... more Laundry!
    I will confess to having read Peter Shaffer's "Equus". And Stella Gibbons' "Cold Comfort Farm". From which I deduce that Bob will find something nasty in the woodshed. As this is the Laundryverse, no change there, except for location....
  • Commented on Attention conservation notice
    Off topic for this thread, but (vaguely) Laundry related, I found this on the weird and wonderful Context Free Patent Art web site: http://contextfreepatentart.tumblr.com/image/55781337800 Sadly, no mention of CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: 419/Rule 34
    Re: the Maplin 3D printer. Note that this embodies the razor blade/ink jet ink cartridge economic model - the printer is remarkably cheap but the refill cartridges are expensive. The cost of ABS/PLA spools for Makerbot and the like is...
  • Commented on Deeply annoying realization ...
    @Greg 23: To grab the first line from its Wikipedia entry: The Crimson Permanent Assurance is a short film that plays as the beginning of the feature-length motion picture Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. Great silliness, and cause of...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Glasshouse
    OGH: ("he who controls the past controls the present; he who controls the present controls the future", as George Orwell put it) Slight misquote or testing us?...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Jennifer Morgue
    OGH wrote in various places: Because going on blood pressure medication for life can have weird cognitive effects Papers and articles don't really give a good subjective insight into what it feels like -- they tend to list frequency of...
  • Commented on The permanent revolution
    @89: Self-cleaning windows are coming along pretty nicely, thank you. I think they're still mostly used in commercial buildings, but you can certainly buy them if you want them. Yes, I've got some in my house. I've got a glass...
  • Commented on Why I don't self-publish
    OGH: anyone up for Charlie Stross does magical realism in "Vurt" mode? I'd buy it. I'd buy almost anything you might write. (Just don't do paranormal romance, OK?)...
  • Commented on Dragged kicking and screaming into the 19th century
    @7: "bad apples" in a basically sound barrel More nit pick than cogent comment on institutional longevity, but I'm old enough to remember when the metaphor was that it only took one bad apple to turn the entire barrel rotten....
  • Commented on Status update
    OK, I've got myself a Google+ account which appears to be the only way to get a profile, it shows antipope.org has access, but I still appear to be named by a cat walking on the keyboard. Can someone who...
  • Commented on Status update
    Looks like I'm getting identified as a weird string as well. I wonder if it's something to do with not having a public profile? Don't have time to try that right now, will play tomorrow....
