  1. Considering the incompetence of the Russians so far not a stretch, especially if corruption is involved.
  2. Has no one here read The Business by Iain Banks? I always thought he postulated a rather interesting model of a free market. I mean the Firm did own the Roman Empire for a day or so. Larry of the Lake, you were reading Banks. His non SF stuff is fun too.
  3. Google Robert Picton. If your stomach is strong.
  4. I keep wondering why Roger Stone and what Stone could reciprocate with. A Nixon dick pic?
  5. Trump would sell his own poop if he thought he could make a buck from it.
  6. Gordon Lewis of punk band Teenage Head is dead. Apparently killed by his son.
  7. The Ontario legislature is back in session and Doug Ford loses out in a vote to replace the Speaker. 20 of his own members voted against Ford's choice for Speaker. This could get interesting.
  8. There is a spot for useless degrees, especially if one is born into the upper class. It lets you pretend to be educated when working at the family firm. Having plebs with the same or better qualifications around reduces your value making you replaceable. Not to mention the problem of being compared to the lessers and being found wanting.
  9. Judging by the Kansas referendum results, I would be hesitant to forecast any major gains by the idiotic right. In any race. It seems Americans have not gone completely over to the dark side.
  10. The only Ukrainian phrase I know is 'care for a beer?'
  11. Shouldn't a lot of the released info have been released to the plaintiff's legal counsel as part of discovery anyway? I think perjury and contempt of court charges against Jones are called for at the least.
  12. Actually I noticed how often Shatner had his shirt off in the series and wondered why, being 12 at the time.
  13. I had a huge crush on her back when TOS was on TV. So sad and she was a huge role model. Being young white and male all the important stuff missed me. I just saw a beautiful woman.
  14. I was going to say it is running off the shelves.
  15. I just finished reading Mark Carney's book Value(s). Before he became your Bank of England governor he held the same position in Canada. One thing he mentioned was that people working in the financial industry no longer get bonuses based on short term performance but can have them clawed back up to 7 years later for malfeasance or misfeasance. I imagine this drains the talent pool of those with larceny and a short attention span. Where else to go but into the Tory party for a career then?
  16. Hunters in Canada need to wear orange not camo. I never could see the point of camo clothing.
  17. We have the same 120V in Canada and we all have electric kettles. 5 min is too slow for a good kettle. The wattage of the kettle is the important factor. 1500w is standard as a kitchen outlet is rated for 15 amps.
  18. If any can think of a better title let me know.
  19. Early enough on embryos have gill slits.
  20. It is a large assumption in assuming that the get any.
