We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

A reduction in the amount of eco-crap

World’s biggest eco-toilet scheme fails

Not that I wish to discount the idea of improvements to the current design of toilets entirely. One must not be too quick to pooh-pooh new ideas.

    You have grossly maligned The Bear of Very Little Brain! “poo-poo” works much better in this case.

    Which I suspect you knew.

    PersonFromPorlock poo poos the pooh pooh which Natalie had pooh poohed. Both seemingly unaware that there was once another website which poo pooed various poo poos (pooh poohs, if you must). That, in turn, engendered poo poos from across the World Wide Web, including the poo poos of German web sites devoted to certain unusual practices. That brought poo pooing from the hosting service for that website, and all the other hosting services poo pooed the site. The site had to go dark.

    Because of poo poo!

    There are two (at least) sides to this.

    On the one the eco/humanist religionists are an unrealistic pain and rightly have dropped themselves in it.

    On the other side there is the fact that economical use of resources is almost the goal of science and not to be despised.

    One does not ask the scientists to stop improving things by applying thought to reality (emphasis on reality, not religio-based self aggrandisement), just (some of them) to stop worshipping their own merde.

    “… you aim your urine at the urine bowl…”

    I’m 60 years old and I still play “sink the submarine” while shouting “take that, you nazi bastards”, so no, I ain’t buying one them any time soon. And how are girls supposed to do this anyway.
