Re: Guns and Whatnot.

I got to play with a Smith and Wesson Victory .22 with a silencer added to it. There is a very noticeable drop in loudness when adding the silencer. And then if you shoot subsonic rounds through it, you only hear only the slide and then the bullet hitting a little later. Amazing. Not sure I'm willin...

Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all

Anarchist who helped design the DIY EpiPencil wants to let you make your own drugs.

Sort of a Cody Wilson type (except left anarchist) actually doing anarchism.

I like it.

Re: Quotable quotes

Here's a story from 2007 about 4 civilian owned f-14s being impounded because they weren't completely de-militarized.

Ready Player One was a good read but I nearly lost it at Cory Doctorow for president of the internet. "...good job protecting my rights" my ass. Doctorow is a fucking communist.
