  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Large banks are routinely being fined for money laundering. They seem to regard it as a cost of doing business. Drug money is certainly not excluded from the general economy. Nobody wealthy actually cares about money. Instead they do...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    "different divisions of the company should compete against each other, and none of them should be a "profit sink", My current TBTF-place of employment is organised exactly like that. This "competion" is totally a great thing, if one does...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    Don't allow morons and cray-cray people to have guns? Establish a fund that pays compensation to all victims, funded by an annual tax on each gun owned (people with illegal guns can conveniently be taken down for tax fraud, which...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    How about plasma cleaning? In physics experiments we sometimes put things that needs to be really clean, like laser mirrors, into a vacuum chamber, pump it down. Then one puts a little bit Argon, Neon, or maybe Hydrogen, into the...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    And the problem with the no-fly list is there's no notice and no appeal. I see no immediate problem with Americans having a good taste of their own medicine. These systems are the way they are because they were...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I think it is a lot more likely that someone *truly* dangerous, one with precisely the right sort of spooky security state contacts, and solid Wingnut Christian Credentials, a.k.a. Mike Pompeo, who will be running on a "Purity and Security"...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Oh, and minimum wage in Ontario is $14.00/hour, so if you got a full time job flipping burgers you would earn just under $30k, which also helps put that Apple Canada wage into perspective. If whoever wrote "iDrive" had only...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Lets see, for my birthday so far I got Fukushima and a Global Pandemic. I think 2021 will be something like Joe Biden starting a hot war with Iran or even Russia because the USA will become too frustrated over...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    But the bullshit in this country is so deep & pervading, that I am still afraid we are going to emerge on 1st January, All of the bullshit has just convinced the world /EU that the UK has lost...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    What do the tory headbangers actually bloody want? Betrayal, More than anything else they expect, crave and demand to be Betrayed! They are like truffle pigs, sniffing, snorting and rooting in the mud for every morsel of "The Good...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    I honestly belive that giving the UK any kind of deal, at this point, will be a massive strategic mistake by the EU! The Tory's still have 4+ years of "government" in the tank, and based on recent form, they...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    For what it's worth, pre-fabricated 10 GHz RADAR waveguide comes in "imperial" and "metric" options for the fixing screws. They are kinda 5 mm screws and look quite similar. It is possible to get an "imperial" screw about 2/3 into...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    But Johnson is nevertheless in a strong position from which to sell out. I think that is from someone thinking that the swivel-eyed ones are just vain, stupid and without any attention span whatever, while conveniently ignoring their considerate cunning...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    At this point in time, it does not even matter if there is a "deal" or not, unless of course that "deal" is just a Brexit deadline extension dragged up as a deal*. The "logistics" for doing whatever any deal...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    That's hundreds of pounds (/dollars/etc) right there, before you even start on sorting the actual problem out. With my car (Toyota), there is an insurance for this, costing about 50 EUR per year for all of Europe. Just call the...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    The expertise fallacy is common so someone must have dug into it. Daniel Kahneman and Amos Twersky. Their papers are unusually well-written and readable for reasearch papers. Alternatively, one can get a book on behavioural finance (I would like to...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    If you were really cute, you could figure out a way to set a guillotine-type line cutter, About a decade ago, I was attending a football game with the kids and the parents are talking as one does. One of...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    At the moment, it is recognised that BoZo is a liar, but is still regarded as "funny" ... but that is diminishing rapidly. Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, "I Hate You, kinda *made* for Boris Johnson: https://youtu.be/C1AYhumuoxM...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    (a) Scotland, NI, Wales, and maybe the North of England leave the UK (and rejoin the EU), Anyone asked the EU about that? Because, many people here would think that we already have our plates loaded quite full up...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I think Donald Trump doesn't actually care that much about being president, it is too much hard work and, it takes time aways from things he enjoy more, like TV, golf and scamming. What he does like about being president,...
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    In other words, C generates lots of interesting false leads for B to explore and A to report on, but they never quite pan out. Well, that does sound an awful lot like the whole of "Russiagate" affair, which never...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    Name another country where "the revolution" hasn't degenerated into tyranny within less than a generation. Switzerland perhaps? The Swiss people united and then kicked out both the House of Habsburg and The Dutchy of Burgundy. Then they were sucessfully...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    I mean, if it wasn't so dangerous and the Swedes apparently do docile they should be taking pitchforks to the government. They should, but, nope. The Swedes are Authoritarian by nature and they do like all things to be centrally...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    I'm only laying out a representative viewpoint from someone in that mass of people that you Bernie supporter think are so stupid. I am not a Bernie supporter. I am giving people the benefit of doubt here: Corruption and Stupidity...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    If the Dem establishment were rational, they would switch out Biden for some other establishment democrat, possibly Cuomo. They are *very* rational. The Dims business model is to collect money from donors for as long as possible while delivering as...
  • Commented on Update to Public Appearances in a time of pandemic
    Now the big question. Will DT buy into it. Donald Trump *is* The America that Comes First! And whatever will a mobbed-up guy like that do? He will make the UK an offer they cannot refuse, some Delaware corporation funded...
  • Commented on Infomercial Interlude
    I propose that we need a unit for Evil. We could call it the 'Bezos'. Like the Farad, it is such a huge unit for all practical applications that most of the time we will be using exponents of it,...
  • Commented on COVID-19
    Too bad the Covid-19 likely isn't going to prepare us better for the climate change... We could get lucky here: The 'target demographic' for Covid-19 seems to rather generously include the 'Climate Change Oppostion': Nasty old rich people who...
  • Commented on The obligatory general election discussion post
    Specifically: will the newly elected House of Commons pass BoJo's Brexit deal with no problems? Nope! What will now happen is that the Tories, stoked with their success at the election, will convince themselves that because there are now...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    You're already looking at unrecoverable harm from Brexit; the money wants Hard Brexit for no more complex reason than that maximizes the value of their shorts on the pound. Maybe The Money simply wants to procure an island for themselves,...
