And we'll need a gear name if we want to get back into the "independent contractor" game.

How about "TrowTech"?

If we play our cards right, we might get Tommy Johansson on board too. He has been forced into hiding by stalkers- primarily Amerikan women with whom he may or may not have exchanged bodily fluids. He would be our control man at the "undisclosed location".

Who else do we know that has the expertise to get a program like this up and running? Jason, maybe? Where is he these days?

Also, where is FR? When she was posting, if people said stupid things, she made them pay...

My experience here at The Local is that if our Savage friend and his hordes do not step in with a heavy hand from time to time, these conversations become increasingly heated, and somehow manage to come to the attention of complete idiots that are not existing posters and have nothing to do with Sweden.

When this happens, we have an outbreak of "fleas, vermin and squatters", to quote our much esteemed and departed comrade, the Howl from Hell, that take days, and sometimes weeks, to run off. Needless to say, these cretins have zero interest in dialogue or debate, and feed on pointless conflict.

We posters have a long track record of heated debate and criticism of each other's positions here at The Local. Even when the debates have gotten hot, and sometimes personal, we usually know where the line is where the debate will cross over to the dark side. When posters deliberately go over to the dark side, it makes sense to shut down the thread and move on. And I speak from experience. I have posted stupid things in the heat of an argument, and then regretted it later.

After all, it is just a news forum. We're not actually deciding the future of the world here.

In my line of work we say "there is always too much information, and never enough".

I suspect that is where he was going with this; that managing one's information intake is challenging these days because there is so much accessible information, and we don't have great systems in place for evaluating the veracity or much of the information that we consume.

It is the Wikipedia principle. Lots and lots of great information that answers questions that we have always wondered about, but how reliable is the information?

أنا أعمل كل ليلة ، أنا أعمل كل يوم ، لتسديد الفواتير يجب علي أن أدفع
أليس من المحزن
ومازال هناك أبدا ويبدو أن على مليم واحد ترك لي
وهذا أمر سيئ للغاية
في أحلامي لدي خطة
إذا حصلت لي رجل ثري
أنا لن يكون للعمل في كل شيء ، فما استقاموا لكم فاستقيموا تحامق ولها الكرة...
المال ، والمال ، والمال
يجب أن يكون مضحك
في عالم الرجل الغني
المال ، والمال ، والمال
مشمس دائما
في عالم الرجل الغني
آها ، اهاااا
كل الأشياء التي يمكن القيام به
وإذا كان لدي القليل من المال
انه عالم الرجل الغني
رجل مثل هذا من الصعب العثور على لكنني لا استطيع الحصول عليه من ذهني
أليس من المحزن
وإذا كان يحدث ليكون حرا أراهن انه لن يتوهم لي
وهذا أمر سيئ للغاية
لذلك لا بد لي من الرحيل ، سآخذ الذهاب
إلى لاس فيغاس أو موناكو
والفوز في لعبة حظ ، حياتي لن تكون هي نفسها...
المال ، والمال ، والمال
يجب أن يكون مضحك
في عالم الرجل الغني
المال ، والمال ، والمال
مشمس دائما
في عالم الرجل الغني
آها ، اهاااا
كل الأشياء التي يمكن القيام به
وإذا كان لدي القليل من المال

تخيل ذلك أنا سعيد لسماع كنت المقبلة
(سعيد لسماع كنت المقبلة)
فجأة أشعر بخير
(وفجأة انها ستعمل يكون)
وانها ستعمل تكون مختلفة جدا
عندما أكون على المسرح الليلة

The other thing that I will want, when I have this weapon, is my own theme music. Something ominous. All of our music in Jamtland has a faint whiff of polka, so I need an outside contractor. It is hard to be ominous on the dragspel.

Who can help with that?

I have advocated wikis for certain info/topics several times over the years.

A number of posters, particularly the wonderful Puffin, have provided key information and insights to posters on any number of occasions. Why not collect this info in wikis or sticky threads? We would need to have good moderation, of course...

For example:

"General IQ Score: Gustav Forsström

Your General IQ Score of 249 shows how able your mind is in general. Anyone with a General IQ Score this high is considered to be a genius. This score is better than 99.99% of all persons taking this test. All known occupations can be comprehended with a General IQ this high. You should be able to handle any academic challenges.

You scored higher than your General IQ Score in 6 individual ability categories. 3 of these better scores could be called statistically significant and may indicate special abilities, or that you were distracted on those parts of the IQ Test that counted more heavily in the other ability categories."

To take the free test, follow this link: Good Luck!

It seems that you all are forgetting that HALF of the human race is BELOW AVERAGE intelligence!

This isn't actually true. 90% of the world's population have IQs below the statistical mean, and then a select few of us exert a powerful upward influence. (You know who you are, Kang, Trow, Beth, VHW...maybe Mzungu when he lays off the Budvar...)

The mass of the satellite weapon would be so great, that literally it would not have to fire. The gravitational changes combined with destruction of the oceanic crust due to it sitting on it, would cause massive volcanic eruptions a lot larger than those of the Siberian traps, therefore ending mammal life on earth.

The impact from a laser capable of penetrating an Ocean and 30 kilometres of rock would literally destroy an entire region with the resulting blast wave, quickly followed by the rest of the planet due to the adverse effects of such a blast.

The resulting blast from such a weapon would;

1. resurface the moon with craters from flying debris,

2. rain gigatonnes of molten debris around the entire planet causing worldwide fires, setting all forests on fire with the resulting heat pulse,

3. vaporise a large section of the Indian Ocean,

4. leave a crater many tens of kilometres wide (as big as Yucatan),

5. create multiple tsumani as high as the ocean is deep, travelling the entire length of the oceans, penetrating for tens of kilometres inland.

6. The actual devastation from the impact of a laser in punching to that depth would be significantly higher than the actual earthquake induced at that depth and the actual induced earthquake would be completely overwhelmed by the overlying blast, which would be over 13 on the Richtor scale, possibly as high as 13.5 to 14.

7. destroy the weapon itself, as it would be within the blast radius of the impact zone of the laser due to sitting on the oceanic crust attempting to float, which would require a crew willing to commit sucicide.

It would be an extinction level event immediately wiping out all life on earth.

The human race would cease immediately, upon firing such a weapon.


Andrea, have you considered a career in sales? Before reading your post, I had no idea how badly I want and need this weapon. Now, I simply must have it. To keep the reindeer out of my garden, you understand...

You seem very knowledgeable. Could you work up some specs and maybe a working prototype?

Trust me, my Icelandic is awful. I am just preparing myself for the day when even Jamtland seems too crowded and noisy for me. Then I will purchase a sheep farm in northwestern Iceland and live like Grettir, my role model.

Sadly, our fair Hawk passed away a few years ago from multiple brain tumors.

I have been trying to come up with a suitable phrase/words to describe him and I'm still at a loss. Those of us who encountered him were blessed in so many ways.


There has never been another like him here at the Local. He was a very soulful character.

If I pass you on the street, or in a shop, I probably won't make small talk, or make any effort to engage you, if I don't know you. Even if I do know you, unless you are a close friend, I probably won't chat with you.

If I got to choose, Sweden would have about 1/5 as many people.

I prefer open space, and quiet, calm surroundings.

My lack of interest in strangers is not cliquishness, it is more like introversion, I think.

I wonder what would it would be like for our more extroverted posters, and people who need constant external stimulation, if we put them on a farm in rural Jamtland for the summer, and gave them a potato crop to manage. Would they go completely bonkers, or would it grow on them after a while?

One thing that was different, perhaps, is that we would slip into more philosophical debates when characters like Hawk, the Teenage Diplomat and Faithless were on board, and when Kang, VHW and 007 were here full-time.

I don't know if they make for compelling reading, at this point, but when they unfolded in real-time, they generated real heat.
