Re: Euthanasia: When and If

I find this extremely disturbing. She isn't even 30 yet. I expect at least half of us have felt suicidal before 20, let alone before 30 (28 was one of the lowest years in my own life). I certainly have not been in my right mind when these thoughts have been in my head. The thought of a doctor valida...

The Eighth Battle of Kharkiv

A couple of weeks ago I read some articles detailing the deliberations the German government is going through. Germany alone represents 28% of the Euro area economy. They are an industrial powerhouse and they make a fortune exporting all kinds of advanced goods (in 2022, their exports earned them $1...

On the Buses Review

Introduction I recently completed a full watch of On the Buses (seven series plus three movies). I believe the show is more valuable for its historic rather than comedic content. Herodotus, the infamous Greek historian, is known as the Father of Lies, yet his material is still useful because we can...

Ukraine: Don't Fight Back?!

Two days ago it was announced that the USA has told Ukraine to stop targeting Russian energy infrastructure because this may push up the price of oil on the world market. An increase in fuel cost can easily harm economic activity, business and personal finances. The USA is especially vulnerable to a...

Breakup of the United Kingdom

In this post, I will assume the United Kingdom itself will break up. History may view this as a continuance of the breakup of the British Empire, with the UK itself being one of the Empire’s first creations. The UK’s current military outlook is coloured by its former role as the paramount power. Its...

Cabaret Voltaire - The Crackdown

In my post reviewing early Depeche Mode albums I stated that I thought Construction Time Again was superior to Cabaret Voltaire’s The Crackdown . I had already been thinking, “Did CTA deserve 10/10?” and I still think yes, it did. When I rate albums it is not only in the context of the whole of popu...

Re: External Validation / World of Warships

A further update! I reinstalled Red Dead Redemption 2 recently and have been enjoying hunting, reducing my bounty, and caring for my horse. As for 'Warships, I still play a bit, but mostly AI and only the content I want to interact with. Coincidentally, Wargaming made changes to allow completion of ...

The system of nation-states

As I write this in early 2024, we can safely assume it will be business as usual until at least 2030. In this post, I suggest we imagine which borders will transition from open warfare to politically and economically stable between 2030 and 2060. The system of nation-states may have ended in a centu...
