  • Commented on Starship bloopers
    In the unlikely event that I ever re-read Starship Troopers, my visual for the powered armour is going to look a lot like the splendid stuff from Edge of Tomorrow. Powered armour, Tom Cruise getting repeatedly killed and Emily Blunt....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Unrelated to anything, the NATO golfball near Kinross is on the market if anyone wants a unique residence. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/commercial-property-for-sale/property-89864398.html...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Just because nobody else has brought it up and I need to express my utter rage, Dido Harding, who made such a success of our £37 billion test, track and trace, is in the frame for Simon Stevens job as...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    The only thing known to go faster than ordinary light is monarchy, according to the philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle. He reasoned like this: you can't have more than one king, and tradition demands that there is no gap between kings,...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Yeah, a splendid opportunity to add yet more carbon to our upcoming bill. Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    While cryptocurrency is the topic, here's something fairly depressing- https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2021/05/private-equity-firm-revives-zombie-fossil-fuel-power-plant-to-mine-bitcoin/ Private equity eh? What a bunch of rascals they are....
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    Since it came up, here's the start of a truly splendid takedown/revue of Watch on the Rhine- https://www.reddit.com/r/ShitWehraboosSay/comments/d1vidb/the_scolar_visari_memorial_book_club_103_watch_on/ Very strongly recommended, if you have the time....
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    I'm not prepared to deny there may be an occasional grain of truth but in almost every case where some right or centrist pundit has mounted his hobby horse to rail against those wicked SJWs, there's usually a far more...
  • Commented on Official Announcement: April Fools Day is Cancelled
    Haidt may have had some crediblity once but he got swept up in the bollocks that is the so-called intellectual dark web. He publishes tripe like The Coddling of the American Mind now. It's the same stupid schtick the right...
  • Commented on Lying to the ghost in the machine
    @977 There's plenty of creditable historians who would come down on the other side when describing the reasons for Japan's surrender. The whole issue is a minefield. There's an excellent summary of current historiography on the nuclear secrecy blog- https://blog.nuclearsecrecy.com/2020/06/09/what-journalists-should-know-about-the-atomic-bombings/...

  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    @ Greg 389 - "But there are an awful lot of fascist-ennablers around" Depress yourself with a nasty concrete example - https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/waiting-for-our-salazar/...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Greg @ 710 "cobblers" I am curious as to what you think your collection of photographs actually proves. It's just a restatement of the Hitler's Pope new atheist nonsense that the article I linked thoroughly debunks with sources. Even Cornwell,...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Greg @ 607 "I can now see why the RC church, officially, found it so easy to cosy up to the Austrian corporal" Yeah that's not what actually happened. Plenty of reasons to dislike the Catholic church but Hitler's Pope...

  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Since we're on nuclear power again I wondeer if someone knowledgeable can tell me how correct or not the paper - Limits to growth: Can nuclear power supply the world’s needs? - is? It sounds plausible to me but then...

  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    888 "parking brakes and steering locks just don't seem to happen at all" I knew someone who had an old Rudge with a steering lock like this one- https://www.cyclechat.net/threads/rudge-steering-lock-barrel-removal.249970/ Never understood why it wasn't still a thing....
  • Commented on Books I Will Not Write #8: The Year of the Conspiracy
    The thing about the qucumbers that truly astonishes me is the amount of obviously ridiculous stuff they accept and angrily propagate. The goddamned mole children for example https://www.reddit.com/r/Qult_Headquarters/comments/fw97bz/what_are_the_mole_children/ (it's a mocking site not a gathering of the loonies. Reddit shut...

    That lot of wankers calling themselves America's Frontline Doctors that had the press conference spamming Republican reopen-style talking points? Not front line at all. https://www.medpagetoday.com/infectiousdisease/covid19/87797 Key extract[- "none of the most vocal members have practices that would place them on...

    Saved by someone else because the arseholes responsible have judiciously deleted it but Cain's Twitter account was still posting covid bullshit just hours before he shuffled off. - https://twitter.com/sandiuagain/status/1288856408323219462?s=09 As for Trump's attempts to delay?

  • Commented on Cough Cough
    More on Friston and the alternative sage here, with a couple of links to the papers they've produced if anyone wants to check his workings. https://blog.dropbox.com/topics/work-culture/karl-friston-takes-on-the-pandemic-with-the-brain-s-arsenal...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The alternative SAGE comittee that's publishing all its deliberations has enlisted Karl Friston to do their modelling. https://blog.dropbox.com/topics/work-culture/karl-friston-takes-on-the-pandemic-with-the-brain-s-arsenal I am definitely not smart enough to tell if that's a good thing or not. There's a couple of papers in the...

    Apropos of nothing, an interesting read about a bloke trying to bag all five deepest points in the oceans. Long but well-written. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/05/18/thirty-six-thousand-feet-under-the-sea...
