  1. This Day In History

    Partly it is because Dvorak is so full of completely bughouse ideas that they tend to seek refuge with Qwerty because he at least tries to keep his friend restrained.
  2. This Day In History

    He did. He tried it. It turned into a huge mess because very frequently used keys sat right next to one another when it was done that way. As a result the type bars kept getting tangled with one another. Eventually he and his co-designers came up with the QWERTY pattern which was less prone to such tangles.

    It sounds to me like a legal g(ir)affe.
  5. EGS Strip Slaying

    Please donomn't give me that.

    He can't possibly be any worse than Prince Charles who at one time placed first on the "List of top ten Englishmen you'd rather have be French" for three years running. That's okay. We still believe in you. It is rumoured that they have recently been offered jobs in Canada and Mexico. Something about planned wall building.

    Because George may be the one sensible person in all of the EGS-Universe? *scratches head*

    Sort of. They are still exactly what they used to be. They are just seen as virtuous by allegedly 'righteous Christians.'

    I think that by now they have been replaced by the Seven Deadly Sins. And in the process, the Sins transmuted into virtues.
  11. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    I know, right. I mean, it sucks to be them and all that. But if they hadn't been noisy and annoying, they wouldn't have been evicted.
  12. Okay. It is no secret that I am a huge WWII buff, or at least it probably won't shock anyone here to learn it. I love a great many topics related to the war but one of my absolute favourites since childhood is fighter planes. I had a huge collection of model airplanes I'd assembled myself which took up almost half the space of one room. I just got hold of a DVD with a TV program about WWII German fighter jets, something which normally fascinates me endlessly. I sat down ready for an hour of happy geeking out. Then the narrator began. And droned on and on and on. I have never before heard anyone on TV with such a terribly boring voice. After a while I actually fell ASLEEP. The last I remembered was something about having trouble getting the High Command to allocate resources enough to developing their jets and then I woke up to something about how fuel shortages made it nearly impossible for the German jets to take to the air in the spring of '45. That narrator was so boring that he made me sleep through almost a whole program about one of the topics most fascinating to me throughout my life. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE.

    Oh absolutely. The problem is that aforesaid genius is taking that seriously extremist fringe and pretending that it is our mainstream. Somewhat similar to taking me and saying all Danes are like me. This would come as a rude surprise to the rest of my countrymen.
  14. Story, Wednesday, Jun 20, 2018

    Highly likely, but I'm having some trouble seeing that as the goal of all of us, or even the majority. Which the genius in the linked piece blithely assumed. Not female-only. Parthenogenetic only. That is, involving only one individual which self-fertilises. The abovementioned genius claimed that this was the end goal of all feminists. That would not even include all of those who want female-only reproduction.

    Why in the world would I choose an avatar based on that?
  16. Story, Wednesday, Jun 20, 2018

    If you feel particularly resistant to stupidity today, here is a link that leads to a blog page where halfway down an MRA explains how feminism and its insistence on parthenogenetic reproduction will lead to the extinction of the entire human race. Near the end you will find a professional geneticist's glorious refutation of the MRA's so-called thesis. No, I did not know that feminists insist on parthenogenetic reproduction, either. I feel quite put out that my fellow feminists have not let me in on this part of our agenda.
  17. Story Monday June 18, 2018

    And here I picked Mr. Raven as an avatar partly because I thought I looked a bit like him. I guess I don't.

  19. What Are You Watching?

    Warning: Incredibles 2 is not epilepsy-friendly. At least one scene contains violently strobing lights. If you are subject to epilepsy or have experienced ill effects due to light sensitivity, be wary of watching this movie. Due to our medical record, I and my wife will not be seeing this movie, which saddens me because I absolutely loved the first one.

    That's the problem wit' 'em foreign parts. They be full o' foreigners.

    I rather think that was the point. Mind you, he also actually _is_ rather old, so maybe he is allowed to. Hrm.
  22. Story Monday June 18, 2018

    Oh. That's what I've been doing wrong. I never bothered making the effort. Eh well, may as well keep the non-effort up, then.
  23. Story Monday June 18, 2018

    ...I am having trouble seeing that. I see her emotions as being more in the direction of, "Punch Magus so hard in the face that he will have a fist-shaped imprint instead of a nose, yes, and if he wants to hurt Nanase on top of that, do it again."
  24. Story Monday June 18, 2018

    I fail to see any benefit whatsoever for Ellen in this. And do not see what purpose it would serve to salve Magus' hurt ego.
  25. Story Friday June 15, 2018

    Actually I was being partly facetious, but I did have something in mind like an underground faction of people lacking in the ability to work magic and in self-defence working out different ways of doing things. Or alternately something like a state of warfare between technology and magic. Possibly like the Ascension War from the earlier edition of Mage: the Ascension but with the technologists on the losing side.
