Jim can't swim is a youtube channel that has analyses of actual police interrogations. He follows the interrogations describing the strategies and how they are able to sweat confessions out of people. This particular one is interesting because it shows how even police are vulnerable to the tactics even though they should know better. Also, how the extreme facial expressions of this particular witch become more pronounced as the interview goes on and she realizes she's toast.
Normally I'm not a fan of longer vids but found this one, although an hour long interesting all the way through and has a quite a finale.

A likely story.

None of them look particularly book-ish to me. That's modern literary criticism for you I suppose, anything can be a text.

A week ago the 2019 Hugo winners were announced. For some reason the mainstream press appear to have given the announcement a collective, "Oops, did that happen." Counter revolutionists. There will be a reckoning. Fortunately our own glorious media sources such as The Mary Sue and Boing Boing were there to inform the masses that this was another successful year for the Great Leap Forward.

May I present the 2019 candidates for best novel:
https://i.ibb.co/1stKDmc/collage-novel.jpg

May I present the winners of the next six categories:
https://i.ibb.co/H44NdP0/collage-hugo.jpg

Regrettably, three of the remaining eleven winners were born with rigid oppressive phalli. I tried to include their images in the collage but ran out of spoons, began literally shaking and had to spend some time in the ball pit.

Also not pictured is Archive of our Own: winner of the 2019 Hugo for Best Related Work. A delightful nest of fan fiction where six of the seven directors are of the approved gender. Number seven at least specializes in writing femslash and will receive a one year reeducation deferment.

Perhaps my concerns are out-of-synch with the current zietgeist...

And on that note may I recommend the following doc which I watched last night:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EXQgTDZs60


At the end of which Tony Hendra compared his time working for National Lampoon in 1970s New York with Hemmingway's time in 1920s Paris - specifically 'A Moveable Feast'

My knowledge of such things is not what it might be - so if anyone can recommend anything else by Hemmingway or Fitzgerald or something else tangentally related (or not) - please go ahead.


nb. missed JD's house (which I have heard is now a 2 bedroom flat) - but there it is still a splendid walk from Mortlake to Hammersmith.

nb2. That damn Tucker Carlson clip keeps autoplaying for me - anyone else having the same trouble?

The video speaks for itself, I suppose.

Goldie gives her review of the trailer for the movie 'Hail Satan?' using it a springboard for a call to action, or at least prayer. The life of a true believer seems to be full of endless forms of drama.

For anyone interested, my recommendation would be to watch the movie in full and make up your own mind. My impression of it - was that the satanists were a bunch of modern day merry pranksters - though they did seem more accommodating to those of a 'SJW' or anti-Trumpist mindset. They take more inspiration from Milton than any of the biblical writings per se - and if they believe in anything it's s power of metaphor and narrative.


And on a not completely unrelated note I think I shall take a walk through Mortlake today - to check out the site of former christian mathematician (amougst other things) John Dee


There are more things dreamt of, etc, etc....
Goldie does have one quite serious point in the disparate response to "hate speech" against Xtians and Muslims. If I were Catholic I would be upset about that. Even from a purely secular point of view I am disturbed at the naive complicity of Xtian leaders in the Muslim drive to outlaw criticism. Muslim activists are very effective at pretending to make common cause with other religions and even SocJus freaks before eventually applying the thumbscrews to them too.

A few years to late to take in the Mortlake brewery. Fell to Singaporean developers in 2016 I believe, although it had devolved into a mass market brewery by then.

@screwtape:
I was never huge into SF book reading, but for a while it was what I mainly read. Some people devour the entire SF corpus, I never did that. BUT... if you never read Jack Vance, I highly recommend at least reading one of his best novels. Emphyrio stands out for me, though I haven't read it for a while. It would be a shame if I reread it and find that it sucks, but I don't think so.

And you don't have to worry, Vance was old-school Reaganite wingnut. But also a genius.

For strange reasons I still don't quite comprehend, I decided when young that there was too much to read, and so I would read only what I enjoyed. Perhaps an illustration of the ways in which we can justify whatever odd decisions we make. Anyway, this meant an excuse as to why the only books I bought outside outrageously expensive medical textbooks were science fiction. Frankly, it made me very happy to go around the local secondhand bookshops with a weekly budget of £1 and buy whatever I could fit in that pound note that would last me for a week. Don't believe anyone who tells you medical students have to work hard all hours. Once you get in, you will pass. If you got in honestly, the work is easy. You have to find something to occupy the rest of the day.
I really liked Heinlein, barely tolerated Asimov who was too simplistic, and felt pretty neutral about Clarke. Eventually, I focused on a few writers that really never disappointed me, and they have probably been lost since those days. For example Edmund Cooper, Bob Shaw and Richard Cowper. John Brunner too, for Stand on Zanzibar. Maybe John Christopher for The Death of Grass. Cooper did a nice alternative history that was much like Keith Roberts' Pavane, in The Cloud Walker. He also did some strikingly misogynist things, like Five to Twelve and Who Needs Men? Shaw wasn't a skilled writer, but like many an SF writer, had good ideas that he couldn't do justice to in his stories. Fire Pattern and Light of Other Days come to mind. Perhaps that is a notable characteristic of SF: authors whose plot ideas far outstrip their literary ability. Probably have to go to Amis père et fils, Ian McEwen and Iain Banks to get SF plots that are matched to writing ability.
I still have shelves of SF paperbacks that I bought then, and still sometimes re-read a favourite whilst I wait for a film to be scanned in the Flextight. Somewhere in 1977, I abandoned buying more SF, as I had been exposed to my father-in-law-to-be's bookshelves. Nicholson's The Age of Reason, and rather ridiculously, Robert Ardrey's The Social Contract, led me on to their progenitors. Thomas Paine and Jean Jacques Rousseau are heady stuff for a youngster. As I moved away from SF, I was vaguely aware that I was losing very little in that all that I could extract from it was already mine. It isn't a real field with real developments, only speculations. Frankly, I don't give much of a hoot for the speculations of diversely genderfluid snowflakes, so there wasn't much to lose. I've learned more about human nature from Anthony Trollope and Thomas Hardy since then than I had learned from all the SF writers combined. Ultimately, I have confirmed that I should read what I enjoy, but don't know what I shall enjoy until I try it! No doubt PZ and his shitty brain won't begin to understand this, but the act of reading is not a political act: it is simply occupying yourself in whatever way you find entertaining. Pretty much the same as making a pot of tea. Hard to keep the horde of commenters happy that way, when it is easier to try to portray each book as a brave stand against the order of the world; a revolutionary act that risks the reader's life for the benefit of the downtrodden. Well, I'm sure politically correct science fiction will sell as well as The Happy Atheist, and deserves to do so. I'll not be told what I can read, what I can enjoy, and what I can laugh at (vide a recent WEIT thread).

Or perhaps something by John 'Gor' Norman.

The thought occurred to me that even by the standards of the endless thread I managed to stray wildly from the topic at hand. No news there I suppose.

As a corrective - let me say that on balance I think that the world was a better place that John W Campbell was once in it.

If PZ or that Marxist Corey Doctorow want to dig up his corpse and put him on trial like a medieval pope for having unacceptable political opinions - that's on them. I would hope that the wider population takes a more considered view - though it's more likely that they don't give a shit.

Black chick starts screaming, says she can park wherever she likes.
Black chick's BF comes back out of store, strides up to white dude and shoves him to the ground.

They used to at least pretend to be trying to establish a guest's policies and opinions on the subject at hand, but now they just find a quote they think they can use and hammer away at that until the target is neutralised.

Was not expecting to see this name in an article about Epstein. I'm not sure if "science blogger" applies anymore. "Rage blogger" might be more accurate. A previous lawsuit:
In his telling, Pivar ended his friendship with Epstein after learning from Farmer of her sexual assault. Some evidence of the tension between Pivar and Epstein is lying in public view. In August 2007, Pivar sued a science blogger named P.Z. Myers and Seed Media Group, which hosted his blog, alleging defamation. Myers had lit into Pivar’s work, calling him “a classic crackpot.” In his complaint, Pivar made a point of mentioning by name two prominent members of SMG’s board: Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. The lawsuit was later dropped.

I have a feeling the "investment class" (rich people) are just itching to dump trump. The Dow took a massive dive today, so if you weren't shorting stock, you just lost a truckload of money. Yes, trump wasn't elected by the investment class, but those are the people who control him. The dunce seems to be purposefully rocking the boat. Today he instructs American corporations to get out of China, right before the Fed gives a big announcement on interest rates. People were sprinting to their brokers. Then he says it was all a joke.

This loose cannon needs to be tied down before it sinks the ship.

I think it was Camile Paglia who said something like "If women ran everything we would still live in grass huts." Haha. I love it. Because really.... science fiction is about fucking SCIENCE! It is in the god-damned name! SCIENCE FICTION. Men like science and machines and shit ten times more than women.... So... most of the good sci fi tends to be masculine.

The result of intersectional crap is that people now have other people to blame for their situation. That leads to tribalism, and tribalism never leads to anything good. Here is an example (from NBC (!)) of blaming men for women's problems:

https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/m ... cna1042931
Framed differently, the picture is this: Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women. Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don’t need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression.
Historically, women have been conditioned to believe that heterosexuality is natural or innate, just as they have been conditioned to believe that their main purpose is to make babies — and if they fail to do so, they are condemned as not “real,” or as bad, women.
So evolution had nothing to do with it.

On science fiction, I found this archive: http://www.luminist.org/archives/SF/. I've started with Galaxy Science Fiction Volume 1 Number 1 and so far have found a story later used as a Twilight Zone episode, the first draft of Fahrenheit 451 and a story that must have been the inspiration for Idiocracy.

I always liked the classic big three - Asimov, Clark and Heinlein, as well as other writers from SF's golden age. But I never considered them the be-all and end-all of the genre, so enjoyed the New Wavies such as Ursula K. Le Guin, Brian Aldis and Harlan Ellison too.

I remember William Gibson saying that he was not interested in the technology so much as the behavior and culture of the people that were using it. So he was writing about people as much as he was writing about things. And then by the time he wrote 'Pattern Recognition' - it was in the same genre and style as his earlier works, but arguably due to general advances was no longer science fiction.

Don't much care who is gerrymandering the lines between 'mascaline' and 'feminine' fiction - to let everyone know what is and isn't acceptable.


Ah well - I think I'll go and read something by James Tiptree Jr...that'll show 'em.

Or Natural Revolution, the lamarckian, individual-as-unit-of-selection tome he toiled away on for years but either never finished, or was so bad the publisher considered a compilation of old blog posts a better alternative?

PZ has a column about a sexual predator prof at Yale. (He never mentions the orientation of the prof. Better to imply it is another white, cis-male, hetero perv than a white, cis-male, gay perv. At the end of the blogpost, PZ reveals why is at UMM rather than an Ivy League college:
I would like to point out that working with spiders in Minnesota seems to provide few excuses for sexually harassing students, but apparently if an industrious, motivated professor could find a way to turn studying vervet monkeys into an opportunity to get into students’ pants, it could be done. Except that I have no interest in treating students that way. I guess that’s why Redmond was at Yale, while I’m at a small state school (PZ Myers)
There you have it! I knew there was a logical explanation why PZ isn't a full prof at Harvard or Yale.

But I'm not really keeping track...and given the speed and general quality of his output - the world will have to look for moral instruction elsewhere.

Really, was there ever a bigger dope born than PZ?

That really is what it's all about. Peez has failed at masculinity his entire life, so when he bombasts " it’s time to overthrow the old order. There will be great pain in the churn", he's fantasizing about toppling all the boys & men who ever were better at being boys & men than he (which he defines as "misogyny" and 'toxic masculinity'.)

What a sad, defeated creature PZ is. Even his impotent rage seems especially flaccid of late.
PZ has been doing "now it's time to get serious and kick ass" schtick since at least the early 2000's on Panda's Thumb. Every couple months he does a new variant of "This time I am really serious! No more Mr. Nice Guy!"

In addition to being one the least scientifically productive Ph.Ds in the history of the degree, he perhaps is academia's biggest paper tiger.

So...concerning free will...

...and the death penalty for people that kill...


...If I recall correctly (which I don't necessarily- see following wiki-link) - Charles Whitman - the Texas Tower shooter requested that an autopsy be performed on him after his death - to try and find the cause of his actions.

The autopsy found a tumor in his brain - but did not conclusively link it to his actions (more info in the link above).

It does raise the question as to what extent he was acting under his own volition - and if he had survived, whether he should have been put in prison, or a mental hospital or possibly just operated on and released.


In some cases - justice seems to be a polite fiction at best.

Caveat to last post. You also have a problem when politicians and media openly and explicitly call for violence against an identifiable group or knowingly lie about people in a climate where the lie is likely to get those people attacked (looking at you BBC).

These people are bat-shit crazy.
Funny thing about the enabling and inspiring violence thing is that it sometimes works the other way round to that in which the Resistance claim. At the risk of inflaming Rabbit and Bear, I think Brive was correct in his conjecture as to the roots of recent so-called Right-wing violence in the West. It generally isn't when national leaders talk about a problem that the violence happens, it's when people perceive a major problem in their societies and nobody is talking about it or is allowed to talk about it. Intense frustration has to be released somehow and some people will blow violently. Problem on the Left is that loons genuinely believe that there is a Nazi problem and the authorities refuse to act. They're in a real tizzy over it, hence the rampant violence. IMO the reason they haven't gone full fertiliser bomb is that there are so many public figures and media outlets agreeing with them, which releases some of the emotion.

I'd say the simplest explanation for the rise of populism is that the elite have made no effort to hide the fact that they despite and don't give a damn about the rest of us.

One of the more convincing explanations of the economic roots of populism I've seen. Perhaps he underplays other socio-political aspects but he knows his economics and he's entertaining. From watching some of his other talks I'm getting the impression that policy-makers and an awful lot of the financial world understand jack shit about fundamentals. He makes what looks to me like a good case that they mistake laws applicable to transient implementations of capitalist systems for universals.

Best to check. Ask yourself for a second opinion.
At some point you have to look at the numbers. It seems far more likely that you're the crazy one, rather than everyone else being crazy and you being the only sane one.
