Re: Ladyfashun

I had to google, because my mind brought up some really dumb ideas and I didn't think it could really be a Thing. It's a thing, and it's mostly as dumb as I thought. The ones that are spaghetti-strap-with-off-the-shoulder-sleeve thingies are... fine, I guess. A bit 70s but okay. The ones that are ju...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Yeah but you wash your hands and that meat will be cooked to temp right? And your knives and cutting board have been cleaned beforehand? Probably?

Re: Occam, Trump, and Russia

I dunno about better but the behavior is inconsistent with the “owned by the kremlin” narratives. You have to really stretch to make that fit. Not when you consider that he's actively avoiding the enforcement of a lot of Russia regulations, including the new sanctions he fought tooth and nail to ke...

Re: Powerful Mice in Space (The New Star Wars Gripe Thread)

I'm reminded of how the reputation of SF fans is "guys who can't get laid" and yet how much outright debauchery, up to and including orgies, happens at any sizable convention. Yeah, bathe daily and have a modicum of social skills and a willingness to strike out a couple times, and it's hard not to ...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

The actual answer is that WYSIWYG word processing is terrible. I type two spaces after a period, to signal that I'm ending a sentence. Then my document compiler takes that information into account when it decides the correct amount of spacing to put there. Hell, that's happening right now. There we...

In the beginning was the Word. Then came the fucking word processor. In the beginning was the command line . In the beginning Turing created the Machine. And the Machine was crufty and bogacious, existing in theory only. And von Neumann looked upon the Machine, and saw that it was crufty. He divide...

Re: It's not the size of the screen...

Been watching The Terror. Clearly inspired by research for Taboo; it's a fantastical dramatization of John Franklin's lost expedition. Pretty decent acting and as long as you can suspend disbelief for a rampaging spirit bear then the show's not bad. One episode left in the season and they are alrea...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

I have reached the conclusion that the space wars are the equivalent of the toilet paper wars. To have an opinion beyond, "in certain circumstances, I prefer [ n spaces or x toilet roll orientation] but humans have opposable thumbs and can overcome this difficulty,' is to demonstrate one's degenerac...

Re: Powerful Mice in Space (The New Star Wars Gripe Thread)

I just assumed that it wasn't just making the jump to light speed, that she hyperjumped into the megacruiserthing. So the damage wasn't caused by the ship in hyperdrive, but by it coming out of hyperdrive in the middle of the ship. Given the way that the Supremacy seems neatly sliced in half by the...

So much retconning...so...much...retconning...

Also, if going to lightspeed is so massively destructive if ther...

Re: How's the weather? v. 1.1

Dew point changes with temperature and pressure, so it's possible for rain to fall from cool moist air into warmer, dryer air. Happens here in CO all the time. You even get situations where there's a rain cloud above you but it evaporates halfway to the ground, leaving you looking up at rain that's ...
