 Can't say. Just for an angle, I remember something about "shade-grown" coffee being a thing.

There's just so much here to point at. It's like a piece of art.

Seriously.

BAMP!

So, this one time, mid-late 90's, Corso had a drink with us at the Vatican. Apart from the not entirely indubitable story of IC development, he also gave me a very pretty UFO picture. That is all I know.

There should still be a black-box warning on the cover regarding the dangers of confusing primary through tertiary sources, I proclaim, from my extensive repertoire of hearsay on said author. Others are clearly not so exceptionally discerning. My condolences for the passing of his relative Lionel, survived by second-cousin Sylvia O'Donnell

What pisses me off is having to deal with all of the cognitive dissonance this guy generates. Feels like any truth gets obfuscated for the sake of sensationalism. Then I'm stuck arguing with people about how a stealth post WW-I- (yes, 1, just last night) NAZI traversal of N.America is both insufficient and mostly incorrect to explain anything.

Even if the author in question may not have made that specific claim, he might as well have. Initially I thought it was all fun and games. Now not so much. Even if the material is not directly toxic to you, it can be once it passes through someone else which which you come in contact: victimization by proxy.

"No More Peepers For Mister Squeakers" - This is a book for beginning readers about a semi-anthropomorphic mouse (like the ones in Disney's version of Cinderella) who gets blinded when a cat claws his face. And although he survives the encounter his eyes and face are burst/torn open and blood goes everywhere.
If it bleeds, it can lead. 
Or... She always used to come when I was bleeding

Looks like I'm gonna need an ODB reader, at the very least. And my mourning dove died today. Sucks.  I'm going to start double-spacing my periods again, because this has not been my best millennium on record.

A set of well-intentioned government tax incentives lead to a large city installing third party home automation security systems on all (public and private) buildings. The security system is a monoculture and is wiped out completely by a ransomware attack, resulting in literally everyone in a city becoming homeless (as their security systems don't let them into their own houses & won't accept their authentication, treating them as intruders).
Wait... Were you at the at the HOA meeting?
Nope. I was watching the new BLAME adaptation.
Saw the first 20mins of the anime last week, enjoyed it, liked the self-replicating sentient cities, and also your version of the premise. Was thinking about how solution to ransom in your story evokes and possibly involves adoption (then development) of crypto-currencies, in which case the "attack" could read as a stealth rescue mission instead: saving people from the logical extension of BLAME. Mastermind hacker would drive an old Fiat 500 with a screwdriver permanently jammed in the ignition.

A self-replicating nanobot grey goo is created. This comes about at a time when the polar ice caps are finally starting to really melt in earnest. Now it must battle The Blob and the shoggoths for world supremacy.

Yes. Volcanos also have sexual components. The thing is all about release :lulz:

Its more like the gnome kings vault in return to oz, cavernous halls filled with butthurt, and when you trip over the butthurt it creates more butthurt.

Recursive butthurt...  :o
Recursive butthurt mitosis  :horrormirth:
