Can you IMAGINE what a boon railways were back in the 1830s? Before this, one could only ride horses, take a stagecoach, or go very slowly down a river in a boat. Stagecoaches were supposed to be luxurious----but they were actually quite uncomfortable---especially if the horses bucked or whatever. ...

Shows how fragile modern society is. A hundred and twenty years ago if you wanted to plunge a city into darkness you had to... break and enter every single home and business and knock over their kerosine lamps, and snuff out their candles. Now you just hafta shoot up a substation with an AR 15. Our ...

That one sentence about how the American South adopted slavery "in order to compete with Great Britain" doesnt make any kinda sense. They adopted slavery in order to SERVE Great Britain as a profitable colony . We didnt become free of Britain until two centuries later. And even after that ...

Trade sanctions are always a double edged sword that hurts both sides. If youre lucky sanctions hurt the target nation more than they hurt, you -the wielder of the sanctions- for a long time before the pendulum swings the other way and you get more hurt than theyre getting. But sanctions are better ...

Movies occasionally. Not usually TV. But there is one exception. Some years ago I watched a few episodes of "the Twilight Saga". Have since developed a number of fanfic versions in my head (The Twilight Saga itself was originally fanfic for something else, I forget what). I had a love-hate...

You know something? I now get that Lilith means something different to everybody who works with her. But after thinking back on some of my own posts about her I must come across as pretty ignorant and disrespectful. Wow... :? I guess I need to take time to figure out what she actually means to me b...

Yes. I like her videos too. You gotta walk before you can run. The person has only just started their channel. it takes a while to get a following. I am not sure what the "right way" to do an autism channel even is. But she is similar in tone to An Mish (a young Danish aspie lady) who has ...

Halfway in on part 2, fair amount of discussion on fractal competition and systemic paralysis to change frame or even register history in non-monumental ways based on that state of affairs. Prof Gilbert Morris discussed alternatives to nihilism on that point. Translation? Nah, I have no idea what i...

Think this thread discussion is going around in circles & getting silly, could have been wrapped up in a few posts rather than 16 pages! For real. It was a thoroughly inane "whose holocaust was the worst?" discussion to begin with. The topic should have been wrapped up in a single pag...

There were American steam locomotives of the thirties that also had that art deco streamlining. Some had it stripped away later, or came in both versions (sheathed in the streamlining, or unsheathed). My question is this: was that streamlining just for looks?

Pro Putrid forces would NOT benefit from rumors that the strong man is any thing less than strong. It doesnt benifit anti Putrid forces either in any obvious way. Yellow journalists out to sell stories by showing westerners "what they want to see" might be somehow profiting from the story ...
