Re: BBC America Greenlights "CSI: Ankh-Morpork"

It may been quite a while since I've read a Discworld novel, but to me I find the portrayal of Vimes to be off. I like the character but to me it isn't true the novels. I've always pictured him as a world weary every day man, a police captain that knows how the world work, yet still try to uphold th...

Re: Massive explosion of stored fireworks/explosives in Beriut, dozens dead, thousand injured, city evacuated.

If ammonium nitrate is about half as powerful as TNT, and they had 2.5-3 tons of it, then that alone -not counting the grain silo or fireworks warehouse- was about 1/5th the explosive power as the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Can someone check my math here? Not 2.5 to 3 tons. Its 2,750 tonnes.

So Trump thinks Microsoft paying ByteDance for ownership of TikTok will lead to the US Treasury getting a cut. I wonder if he'll even notice when that's not what happens.
It is almost like Trump doesn't know how a business is run.
