  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    "Two shinty teams went into a pub..." https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-57329610 ( was first reported on Alba 3 or 4 days ago, when it was ~30 cases )...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Also worth checking that your satnav is not set to update the displayed route every time it finds an alternative that will save more than one minute, while driving through central London... ...just saying....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    From another blog (original poster was tagged Robert Pearson)... The 2 main forms of money we use currently are credit money and currency. Credit money is an IOU from a bank that promises to deliver to the holder, on demand,...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    One of the more disappointing evening outs I remember was failing to find a single drinking establishment selling draft Guiness unchilled... in Dublin. ( the actual choice was very cold or "super cold" ) The levelling down effect of globalisation,...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    I dont think many houses on a modern UK estate have either cold or hot water tanks, they dont fit with the ongoing trend of reducing the overall floor space; cold is fed direct from the mains and hot is...
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    "your borehole would be 150m deep and drawing heat from a circle 300m or more in diameter" You could locate it in one of Edinburgh's extinct volcanoes... ...the film writes itself (badly, probably)....
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    Slight irony in that being completely colour blind means you can't join the police....
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    "atavistic forelock-tugging towards the royals" I'm not sure that treating them like soap stars is that atavistic, but one defence of the royals I've seen is along the lines of: ...given humanity's distressing habit of going weak at the knees,...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    Salmond is planning to run 4 candidates in each of the regional elections, none in the individual constituency votes. No doubt he sees himself as holding the balance of power or suchlike. As OGH implies he seems to be unable...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    I think it was personal, Trump simply doesn't like Obama. Its possible a lot of Trump's actions were down to personal animosity....
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    Atlanta is currently 225 to 320 m above mean sea level. Do you think sea levels will actually rise far enough to submerge it? Thats not right, in the words of the song... "I've seen the plywood cities meet their...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    I'm not sure why you need to have a smart meter in order to be able to swap electricity provider ?...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    A couple of comments on the ever-fascinating subject of cricket. There is no "speed limit" on how fast the bowler throws the ball; however there are rules about how they throw it, e.g. the arm being straight at the point...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Could Trump (get others to) organise his own political party, no doubt diverting some public contributions away from the Republicans, but still challenge for the Republican presidential nomination for 2024 ? If not, I can still see him trying to...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I would have guessed that "nativism" referred to "native americans", but from the context I'm guessing this is not the case....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    The current student loan system in the UK is actually a graduate tax - however the Tories are "not the party of taxation" (implying that other are) so its not called that. Essentially it provides a loan each year on...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    An alternative approach would be to activate in-country assets (either directly or via a third country) to attempt a series of assassinations/sabotages, with Trump applauding them as "the US supports/salutes these brave defenders of freedom". No risk to him, no...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I still dont think Trump will leave the US for any length of time, but if he does then I'd have thought Israel was the obvious destination....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I can think of several countries that would be happy to provide spurious data to the US State Department to justify an attack on Iran....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Thats not quite the same thing - in the UK it was the Labour party that "rescued" the banks, which seemed to involve Brown being pressured into doing what the financiers wanted because he/Labour craved City credibility. It is since...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    For 30 years one of the Conservatives' most important principles was that failing industries should be allowed to die. Then came the financial crisis and they realised that actually pushing many billions of taxpayer's money into the right kind of...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    To be fair Dracula would walk that bid in England - I think we can be sure he would know the right people....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    "All the people who took our money ditched us on the same day" - when they could no longer claim to be unaware of who we are and what we do....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I dont know about the US, but in the UK we seem to have social liberals - we want society that is somehow fairer than now social conservatives - we dont want any more social changes, its most unsettling social...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Unless pushed by Israel I'd expect Trump to hold back on the stirring up trouble abroad until it is clear that his supporters are unable to rid him of those turbulent Democrats....
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Will Trump issue a blanket pardon to those involved, even though police officers were injured and one has died ? It seems the easiest way to avoid details coming out in court cases and so maintain the "left wing agitators"...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I find it difficult to believe Trump is considering leaving the US for any length of time - he will still wield a lot of influence (and money) on the back of his faithful supporters. After all he now has...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    I think there are 2 or 3 EU countries who may look at the Brexit deal as an opportunity to apply pressure to get what they want in unconnected negotiations....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    It is misleading to use Irish GDP as a comparison due to the significant distortion effect of them hosting (for tax purposes) the EU arms of several global IT companies. A better measure is GNP, which the Irish government themselves...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Sorry, 2658 was meant to be a reply to 2647 from Mike Collins...
