    Depends on the typewriter, I suppose. In the 70s and 80s when word processors were taking over, the military was concerned that someone could place a sensor in the room next to a computer and pick up and interpret the electrical signals sent from the keyboard to the computer. If we were working on composing or editing a classified document, we had to use equipment that was “TEMPEST” certified (can’t remember what the acronym stood for, but I’m pretty sure the ES was for "electronic security). It’s evidently still in effect — there’s a Wikipedia article about it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempest_(codename)

    I imagine a typewriter like the IBM Selectric could be subject to the same sort of monitoring to read keystrokes at a distance.

    Lots of accusations there, but like with all of the Trumped up charges there is no substance to any of them.
    .
    Name ONE bribe. Just one. Name the person who received it. Or the amount. Or what they were bribed to do or not do.
    .
    Name ONE “political payoff.” Just one. Who was paid off, and why?
    .
    Carter travels by commercial airlines? The Clintons do not. Neither do they travel on foundation funds. It’s well-documented that they pay for their travel mostly out of pocket and count the travel expenses as an in-kind donation, the same you YOU could deduct your travel expenses to deliver meals-on-wheels. That’s assuming you donate time and/or money to charitable causes.
    .
    Name ONE person who “paid” to “play.” What was the payment, and what was the “play.” And what was the money used for? Having someone donate $100,000 for AIDS medicine to Nigeria and winding up at dinner with Bill a couple of weeks later doesn’t bother me. I got to meet a university president for donating to a scholarship fund. So what?
    .
    Name ONE specific — that’s SPECIFIC incident instead of just throwing out vague and general accusation. Otherwise you will continue to have no more credibility than you have now. I would have less credibility than you have, but it is impossible to have less than zero.

    “If the primary target is overcast, as always your secondary targets are the accordion factory and the mime school.”

    Darn. Can’t find my “block user” button. I’ll keep looking.

    Both Arthur Clarke and Larry Niven (and probably many others) have postulated and speculated about Jovian life, probably high in the atmosphere. The spacecraft is to protect hypothetical life on the moons — what if there is life on Jupiter?

    That’s OK. There’s a reason he didn’t make it past MSgt to become a Senior or a Chief.

    We’d rather have spiders than flying nuisances we would otherwise have. It’s like having a barn cat to keep the rat population under control.

    I think it means he’s in art galleries that are unknown, but in large buildings. And his overseas art is physically large (“tall and wide”) even if not “big” as in popular.
    .
    I think it may be a commentary on the common practice of using physical terms to describe popularity, with Rat then using the terms literally to confuse Goat.
    .
    I think that may be it. Not too sure.
    .
    Made me think, but didn’t make me chuckle.

    Trolls talk like pirates?

    Can’t find my thumb-up button, but you’d get one if I could.
