    omm ... now ... early next week Walt has a cataract sorted. Now he's been remarkably patient whilst the vaseline glass he looks through steadily becomes more opaque . the worst of it over the last few years till present. One of the comments we've been getting is curiosity as to his reaction to how I will look to him ... so anyway tonight he asks me if I'm bothered , and then assures me that he will try not to throw up ...ffs ... I told him if he threw up he'd be able to see it to fucking clean it up

    I know this is an old thread, but it was bugging me too that I couldn't remember what show this was, that my searching for it brought me to your thread. So as I had nothing better to do this evening, I've just spent a good hour going through lists of old TV shows, and was about to give up, but then found it! It's "Professor Poopsnagle's Steam Zeppelin". To quote from Wikipedia "The golden salamanders had been buried long ago to indicate where each mineral could be found. After the first one was found, the cryptogram on it would lead the children and the doctor to the next one. What they had to do in each case was to decipher the cryptogram on each salamander." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professor_Poopsnagle's_Steam_Zeppelin Now just to find somewhere that streams the episodes!

    The thread that that wouldn't die, on the forum that wouldn't die, answers the question that couldn't be answered, by someone out on the intartubes, who 10 years and 2 days later signs up and posts the answer. If this doesn't prove the feasibility of " Infinite Improbability Drive" nothing will. ?Is it !Atomic! .. !Yes Sir! .. It's very Atomic! ................................................................. By the way putting Professor Poopsnagle's Steam Zeppelin into Google produces strange edcuation based results... methinks there is a problem with Google's brownian motion generator. A fresh cup of tea might sort it. Anways Hello and welcome to the Atomic Forums Kel

    So, it's nothing like the Snowy Mountains Scheme - despite the name. I did not know that before, but somehow I am failing to be surprised. I've reached the point that if anyone in government announced Sunlight 2.0, I'd expect a packet of darkness. You're assuming they have some sort of self-awareness.

    And the current jokers haven't? All I hear from the LNP side is how fantastic it is to have a budget surplus, the first in 12 years apparently, while conveniently ignoring the fact that for the previous 6 years they have been in government. So does that mean the LNP where useless before now or is it only bad when the ALP has a deficit. Also how much of this wonderful surplus is because they have deferred spending to the next budget, or cut or delayed other projects just to cook the current books?

    In a nutshell. It's still no guarantee, but at least you can righteously complain if you spend a few moments doing your own numbers

    well thats far more correct. but still not correct. the OLC memos werent ignored at all, but rather it was adherence to them that was clearly stated as instrumental in the report being non-committal on the question of guilt. and to my understanding at least, no specific "statute" applies here. the 'rule' (such that it is) in question, is that of a prevailing (and arguably binding) interpretation of the constitution by the DoJ (detailed here) which was observed during the Nixon and Clinton presidencies.

    Slightly related - similar consilidation in the tool industry. Sort of funny how Black and Decker, which has been a somewhat crap brand since the 80s, owns DeWalt which is regarded as a premium brand. Oops, maybe should say "Stanley Black & Decker" - but on that note I've been a big fan of Stanley stuff but it seems to have taken a bit of a dive lately.

    I was losing my shit over the way the Clinton campaign was in obvious cahoots with the DNC during the primaries in 2016. Fuck Clinton; I don't accept her corruption for a nanosecond. But she's normal. None of the stuff I quote Robert Reich saying about Trump applies to her, or virtually any other politician. Clinton is business as usual, which is increasingly regarded as unacceptable; folks are starting to demand actual democracy. But fucken Trump has done everything possible to demolish the institutions that make democracy even possible. This is why I react strongly when people mention Trump in the same breath as politicians who aren't Hitler or Mussolini, as if they're even the same species. How can you miss this obvious distinction? Like, when he tells his supporters that he'll pay the legal fees associated with them assaulting protesters, how can you not notice the neon line he just barged across, unlike every other politician in the developed world since WWII? I can't even.

    Unhinged? Eveln was only asking what your comparison there would be. It would take a few seconds to answer more politely and probably not detract from the points you make around here. I think you often mean to encourage people to be their best selves from a humanitarian and ecological point of view. I think the goals can be noble. But I also think it's the little biting comments that end up with the message being lost and perhaps reversed in some ways and get you some ire in return Do you feel that someone calling your questions unhinged would make you reconsider your position? Or is it more likely to show how they are just ranty and emotional and lessen their substance? I'm not trying to attack you here, just seeing if you might find a way to have a more effective approach.

    not to worry, Gladys is probably already in negotiations to convert the Opera House into one.
