Yeah, exactly. Don't forget, there are (or were) insects in some red dyes.

The banshees are kicking my butt because of my half-lame left hand. I'm not very nimble with my W finger out of commission. :(


Seriously? (1) Could this be true? If so, how widespread is Bregret? (B) When you cast a vote, make it the one you actually want.

See what you started?


Does the vote have to be followed up by official action on the part of the British government, or is it binding?

I'm wondering if the referendum could be a weather balloon to see what would happen if the UK did leave, followed by a "just kidding, nonbinding, Government chooses not to leave" if it went sour.

Or is that wishful thinking?


I was shocked to hear that exiting the EU requires that any agreements between the exiting country and the EU be ratified by unanimous agreement of all the remaining EU members.

Yeah, this could take a couple of weeks.

The date of this is currently a hot topic of discussion. The EU are saying "Get on with it" while Leavers are saying "Let's leave it a while, have some informal chit-chat, work out a deal". We'll see. I thought Cameron's leaving speech indicated he was going to declare Article 50 at the upcoming summit next week, but commentators seem to think otherwise.

The EU knows that financial markets hate uncertainty and are liable to be volatile until the exit is a done deal.

It's all about markets.

So you're suggesting that Cameron is trying to hold the EU hostage by prolonging the uncertainty?

I said/suggested no such thing. I can't fathom nor speak for Cameron, it just seems obvious that the EU wants it settled quickly to stabilize the markets.

Do you live in the UK, Treppa?

Nope, a few hours west of there. I'm really interested in hearing from UK citizens about how things are there. My thoughts are strictly blue-sky.

That said, I'm only 2nd generation here in the US, so ties to the Old Country are pretty strong.

There are several things about this result that make me uneasy. One is the aggressive nature of the Russians under Putin and how that will be affected by the perceived weakness of the EU after this vote - particularly if the Dutch and others follow the UK's example. Another is that one of the US Presidential candidates is no fan of NATO, possibly further weakening European security. And another is the independence movements for N. Ireland and Scotland, which can further fragment the UK. It seems an extraordinarily poor time to weaken the EU.

One thing I have noticed watching the BBC is that people (politicians and experts) are either ecstatically happy or doom and gloom depressed. This leads me to think that nobody has a deep understanding of all the implications of this vote. Reactions are too simplistic, not nuanced enough.

So yeah, a wee bit jittery about this one.


Lol, sorry Rags! :D

Scotland could leave and take Northern Ireland with it as a colony.

What?

Edit:

Sinn Fein is urging Ireland to unite as an independent country.
SNP is continuing to talk second independence referendum.

Last update, because it looks like it'll be wrapped up in an hour:

Not that it would have made a difference, but whylt thll flyylllk, Wales?


Original look was sort of this and it's now kind of this. But not so crispy. So, improvement. I guess.


Yes, and it's England remaining to be counted. They have been pretty decisively Leave.


Hope it's nothing too troublesome, Patrick. I'm about at my limit for doctor visits, me.

The swelling in my finger has gone down a lot, but now it looks something like a crinkle-cut fry. :/


Current data:
Electorate: 46,501,241 with 71.6% turnout (Dang, look at that turnout!)

E: "Oh, fair Scotland, stay with us. We're better together, stronger in a union. Don't leave us!"
S: "Um... not sure that's a great idea, but 'kay."
E: "Now that we're staying together, we're leaving the European Union."
S: "Wait, what? We want to stay in the EU. What happened to better together, stronger united?"
E: "HAHAHAH! Good one, weren't it? We have more people than you. We're outta here."

It'll be interesting if England votes to leave and Scotland, N. Ireland, and Wales all vote to remain. I believe Scotland has already made noise about another independence referendum and petitioning to join the EU as a sovereign nation if the UK leaves.

Current data:
Electorate: 46,501,241 with 67.4% turnout

I wasn't allowed to read comics because I'm a girl.


Of course, "going out for a drink" can be more about socialization than drinking, so they might be inviting you for that. I found that tonic water with a wedge of lime looks enough like a mixed drink that booze pushers leave you alone. Very handy. ;)

I bit the bullet and got a drafting table and stool today. Table is solid oak and the top goes from horizontal to vertical, which I need to be able to store it. I can use it level for my laptop for work, and slanted for art. Got a nice swivel stool with pneumatic cylinder, too, so am all set. My laptop is on there now and working very nicely. It's quite comfortable. Plus it's right below the newly discovered ceiling fan, so bonus.

Yay.

For using spells, it's the spell's casting time.

The PRD is an invaluable source of basic Pathfinder information. A link is near the top of the Pathfinder column on the left, under "Rules Archive (PRD)".

I read these last summer, I think. They're really good, but not too cheerful. Not horrifyingly depressing, though, considering ** spoiler omitted **

True, though the author

Spoiler:
kind of strings you along with the hope that the deflection plan might be real. Plus the whole "why keep going" theme is relevant to everyone and brings up those ideas of inevitable death we don't like to think about. I found it uncomfortable and am glad that I'm not depressed at the moment.

I checked out two of Winters' young adult books for grins, and Midnight Riot and Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch. That should get me to sleep tonight.

Me, I know there are beasties in the salt water hereabouts.

Ngah. o_O

Having grown up around the Great Lakes and some big rivers, I am not used to giant beasties in the water, aside from the occasional big, nasty gar. But those stay in the water where they belong. So when I went to San Francisco and took a nice morning stroll on a pier, nothing prepared me for a sea lion popping out of the water RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME YAAAAAH!!!

Cue frantic backpedaling and falling on butt.

I swear that thing was laughing.

I like the idea, but honestly I figure I'd forget half the time to change. I might consider it if they get to the point where campaigns remember and default to the default alias (as opposed to just having it at the top of the alias list), however.

If you use Firefox or Chrome Oladon's Campaign Tool lets you set a default alias for a thread.

Pretty sweet.


Hey, we have reservoirs! And streams that they call rivers here. But they are nice streams.

Und alzo, the apartment complex has an absolutely beautiful swimming pool. I should post a pic. Great view of the front range.

Ooh, Dave's ME3 postings reminded me that I need to replay ME3 with the Citadel expansion. It didn't activate when I added it near the end of the last game.

Interesting idea, particularly in light of the dreams I had last night... but that might be TMI. Except for Freehold, of course, who has no TMI threshold. :)

How's the beach? I can't go near the water until July 20, which is making for an unhappy summer so far.
