    Dune Messiah. Paul is such a naughty boy. and Which is great. Typical of Buruma’s style of writing history, so wonderfully engaging.
  2. Do you think Putin is a rational individual?
  3. Yes, I noted that above. It's still owned by Russia. The only insurance companies that would insure it were Russian. As has been said by many people, there is not enough information to make a determination one way or the other.
  4. The pipeline belongs to russia (nominally), and is used to send Russian gas to European countries. Russia will not send weapons to Ukraine to defend against Russia. As I noted earlier - Ukraine has called for a total embargo on Russian oil and gas.
  5. Yous are all fucked. https://www.salon.com/2022/09/30/what-does-have-on-cannon-experts-stunned-after-overrules-own-special-master/
  6. Nord Stream was financed by both European and Russian companies. https://www.nord-stream.com/press-info/press-releases/nord-stream-completes-phase-ii-financing-305/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord_Stream_2#Costs_and_financing Russia certainly has the capability to sail undetected and also has underwater drone capability. Ukraine also has underwater drone capability (the UK delivered to them last month) and they have been calling for a complete embargo on Russian fuel purchases. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/qa-nord-stream-gas-sabotage-whos-being-blamed-why-2022-09-30/ https://www.wired.com/story/nord-stream-pipeline-sabotage-explosion-russia-gas/ All that to say - exactly what Beau (Bo?) said in that youtube video - no-one knows yet.
  7. Shame about the sound system snafu. The one time I've managed to see them, the venue had a fantastic sound system. It was loud but clean as fuck. Will look forward to the soundboards and hope they come out to Toronto or Montreal.
  8. Yeah I don't think he would use them either, but the rhetoric is sure to be amped up, especially as I think he is starting to get more desperate. Hence the referendum and mobilization (including recruiting from prisons - what could go wrong?).
  9. The real scary shit with those “referendums” is that Russia will then claim the territory as theirs, and they are now fighting a defensive war, justifying the use of nuclear weapons.
  10. Frankfurt airport is so bad I’m not going to get to enjoy the free booze in the lounge.
  11. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent. Liked it way more than I thought I would. Nicholas Cage is excellent at being Nic Cage. Some genuine comedy in the film, but still enough poignancy to make it more thoughtful than not.
  12. Gang shit in a town of 15k is kind of weird to me, but that’s a pretty reasonable explanation (the microscope).
  13. You ain’t kidding! Connecting through here to Singapore, what a zoo.
  14. Man what the fuck is up in Uvalde. Population of 15-16K, you got the school shooting and a gang shooting all in one year. I know Texas, guns, yada yada but sheeeeeit.
  15. I’ll be in Frankfurt for one night next week (Thursday the 15th). Anything to do or see? I have a relatively early flight the next day so no LSD trips, but if there’s anything fun to be done… If any WATMMers live in the city, would love to grab a beer!
  16. https://www.irishtimes.com/business/media-and-marketing/for-the-beeb-the-death-of-queen-elizabeth-will-be-no-joke-1.2244460 If Charles wants to be the most popular king ever, he'll abolish the whole fucking institution.
  17. Both can be true. His net worth is something like $8 million, which he ain't making as a prof at U of T (where he continues to receive a public salary, even with all the "oppression" he faces).
