From a forum on living off the grid: "I'm looking for information on generating methane with horse manor."

Horses will generate plenty of methane in an ordinary stable. No need to get fancy.

No need, either, I guess, for a stable genius.

But you can get extra credit if you get them in the right order.

So much to hate in there. Nazis, coding your fucking shoe laces, thanking people for telling your your wearing the wrong fucking shoe laces, and especially FUCK TWITTER and the people that use twitter like this with fifteen different things embedded in one thing and then referencing something in one of the things.

I wouldn't have even taken notice of the ball head men if I wasn't trying to figure out why my day was polluted with this garbage pile.

That's what I thought. Or was red for anti-racist skinheads? I don't remember, and frankly don't care all that much.

I, for one, think the whole thing is a hoax perpetrated by Big Shoestring.

I think we can all come together though to say that we should shun and excoriate all people who wear doc martens, regardless of their shoelaces, and if we happen to sweep up some nazi punks in the purging, that's a great bonus. #YesAllDocMartens

Hey! I wear Docs! I wear them with yellow laces, because that's the anarcho-capitalist color, and definitely not just because I was too lazy to change the laces that came with them.

See, this is why you should save up for a good pair of Alden Indy boots so you can look down your nose at anyone wearing cheap-ass Dr Martins.

I assume somewhere in Canada?

Rockports are or at least were good shoes back when I remember owning a pair. Lightweight, good for walking, I wore a pair on my first European backpacking trip in the mid-80s.

The thing about Indy Boots is how comfortable they are despite their weight and how well they protect your feet and ankles. Plus, one pair should last a lifetime unless you're literally involved in heavy labor, and you don't end up looking like a punk poseur of one sort or another wearing them. I'm told Redwing makes a good workboot, too, but for an effete paper pusher like me, one pair of good boots is enough. Probably more than enough.

I'll add it to the list of things to budget for, but I shouldn't drop $600 on a whim.

Especially not in the middle of moving. :P

If you wish real hard, I'm sure a lesbian will show up at your doorstep and give you a pair as a house warming.

Indeed. Instead you end up looking like a hipster poseur.

I had some Redwing engineer boots, and they were pretty good. I've owned engineer boots from Georgia, Redwing, Frye, and so far I think Frye is probably my favorite.
