BTW, my dad bought a swage dimpler from IKEA yesterday for fitting a tap to a sink. Couldn’t think why I knew the name for what it was doing. Couldn’t work out why I was reminded to go on Oppo, either. Now it all makes sense.

Hey you mad bastard, I just turned the old laptop back on and remembered Oppo. What, no updates since I last prompted you? ;) Read more

BTW, I had a small leak into the boot recently, so pulled the boot carpet to dry. Have you seen what’s under it?

Oh. I forgot I hadn’t responded to this. Thanks, it’s got some fascinating data. Ought to turn it into a Wiki and get people to help. Read more

Lots of people need culling. That doesn’t mean governments should carry out the culling.

International waters have their own set of weird jurisdictional and procedural laws, based on international treaty and/or the concept of universal jurisdiction for certain crimes (like war crimes). That’s an easily distinguishable situation from something that happens within a nation state. Read more

Wow, that’s impressive. I seem to recall you talking about the difficulty finding consistent figures - did you manage to deal with that? I’m surprised by e.g. the weight of a rotary compared to a big block V8. Read more

Er, Gawker isn’t pro-integration. It’s pro-gas chambers. Don’t know what you’ve been reading.

Let’s not forget the BLM organisers who failed to respond to that correctly. Adopting it as the counterbeat to the BLM chant would have removed its racist meaning. That was totally obvious. Why, it’s almost like some of them are just professional campaigners/fundraisers who’d rather have an obvious bogeyman than win Read more

But they’re nutjobs by definition. MAGA. Make America Great Again. So the supposed ‘nationalists’ are the only ones in the world who don’t think the USA is great right now, in the ways they’re thinking about.

Nah. These fuckers are way more out of control than that. They can get away with shooting a rich, white, entirely innocent woman.

I was making this point recently, and someone thought I was joking. Letting the Deep South remain in the Union at this point means they get away with widespread and open racism that would see them shunned by the international community if they were a separate country; they get a pass because of the rest of the ‘land Read more

The problem is that racists generally don’t think of themselves as racist. There are exceptions, the ‘out and proud’ white supremacist nutjobs and so-on, but they’re a very small minority. Read more

The Democrats are supposed to stand up to antisemitism (or any other form of discrimination) from voters, not embrace it.

And you have to be deluded or lying to think that ‘achieving that goal’ is anything other than code for ‘finally solving’ the ‘Jewish problem’.

So the antisemites are the future of the party? No wonder Trump’s in power.

Er, AOC and her ilk are known for gas chambers, not guillotines.

Populist, not popular. Antisemitism is a populist ideology. ‘Blame the Jews’ is populist propaganda.
