  1. The marriage rate is gong to explode pretty soon, with the arrival of AI sex-bots with artificial wombs.
  2. Nanny state considering more compulsion.

    You think there are no bad consequences when a cyclist pulls out through a red light in front of a perfectly law-abiding driver and ends up as a red splat on the tarmac? That the driver will just wash the blood off their car and forget about it in a few minutes?
  3. We're pretty much there. Last time I had to move my desk I threw out all the paper I had in the old one to save carrying it to the new one, and I now have three pieces of paper on that desk. One of which is just a form I'll fill out and stick in a filing cabinet. I still have to produce a lot of 'print' documents, but most just get saved as PDFs and emailed to customers.
  4. Nanny state considering more compulsion.

    Tell that to all the pedestrians who have been knocked flying by some asshole cyclist. Shortly before I left the UK, I was almost hit by one racing through a 'pedestrianised' shopping street with a kid on his handlebars. If I'd stepped out onto the pavement a split second earlier, I'd sure have been suffering the consequences.

    Have you ever seen a British cyclist who doesn't go through red lights?
  6. RIP lawyers

    Don't forget doctors. Pretty much any job that's based on knowing things rather than doing things is going to be obsolete before too long. Particularly those were the workers have been able to artificially increase their wages through regulation.
  7. I've received two of these asking me to reply within 30 days. First one arrived 28 days after it was sent, second one arrived 40 days after it was sent. Since I replied to the first one, I've no idea whether they really want me to send them exactly the same information again, or whether it just weeks to get back to them. Completely useless, the lot of them.
  8. women as victims

    I believe you'll find it's called 'testosterone'. Historically speaking, it's one of the main things that has made men sign up to fight.
  9. SJW meltdown

    Sadly, it increasingly seems that segregation may be the only way to finally end Racist Hate Crimes.
  10. Donald Trump

    The problem is that Democrat voters will keep voting Democrat so long as the Democrats keep promising them FREE STUFF! They're now the party of foreigners, welfare zombies and government employees (and, according to some American acquaintances, the latter categories are becoming increasingly indistinguishable).
  11. Heating went on tonight

    Down to -9 here at the moment. -20 coming at the weekend. For a couple of weeks now, the daily high temperatures have been around the historical average daily low temperature for this time of year. Global Warming, eh? As for sweating, it really sucks at 50 below zero. Soaks into the insulating layers of clothing making them less effective, and, if you're unlucky, turns to ice. Is kind of bizarre, though, having to remove clothing at that temperature because you're getting too hot while working outdoors.
  12. Sorry, but no. The global economy is going down, and it's never coming back. By the time the next boom cycle should start, vast numbers of jobs will have been eliminated by automation and AI, with nothing to replace them. On the plus side, houses will be cheap for a while because hardly anyone will have money to buy them. But then the riots will start, and most of the cities will burn to the ground.
  13. Cholesterol

    Another one: It's probably worth noting that one of the guys who discovered statins apparently refuses to take them. Can't find a link to the article I read on him a while back. As usual, it seems that much of the advice given by doctors has been not only garbage, but actively harmful garbage.
  14. Gary Glitter is nothing compared to some of the stories about Hollywood. And it's nothing new, either. The swamp goes back decades.
  15. It's a funny old world when the left are calling the freaking United Nations 'right-wing'.
