About 8 years ago, I was a co-parent for sometime, with my former partner. they adopted a child and i thought i could help out, so we became a family living in a tiny flat. the circumstance of them adopting the child was tragic, because the kid's biological parents were killed in a freak car accident. Some rich asshole's son was drunk driving and hit their car head-on when they were on their trip. And my SO was their best friend. At the time we were in relationship and I felt my duty to help out, so I became the child's legal guardian.

Both of us are anarchists and queers so things work out very well, we used open-learning techniques to let the child learn things own their on, and we will always be there to help the child whenever they needed help. We both agreed that everything the child learned should be their own choices and decisions, and we'd try the least to interference unless the child were in danger to their life. The kid was an amazing artist, loved art and music, but I think there was even a sadder part about it. The kid used music and art to cope with the death of their bio parents, and I saw the kid as a mirroring version of myself because I too loved art and music, and I've also used my crafts to cope with traumas. We helped the kid a lot with that art/music department, and they got to enroll in a prestige art school.

But nothing last forever, I became depressed with life and things, things began to trailed off. At the time I also got back to stealing and burglary and my partner felt uneasy about it. I was struggling with rent and bills. I had to make a decision. So I said goodbye to the child and my partner, they understood the decision. They quickly found another co-parent, I believe they were a better person than me due to the fact the new co-parent worked for a big corporation, so they could help the kid out. We had good run but I couldn't continue.

the planned power outage in California feels like the future of climate change in the US

it's closer to eco-fascism than anything

My neighbors been throwing out a lot of furnitures, I brought some home and just refurbish them for fun. there's not much value in them so i'd end up giving them to antique stores.

Pick gun and bump key set, they'd complete your go-to tools for bypassing lock. Electric pick gun is good tool to have, but you don't need it, basic one should do just well. Bump keys, bump rings and hammer often sold for $30 in store. Other stuff to have, like quick shim for flexible bypass on closed latch, shove knife and door wedge for bypassing multi-latches, Double Door Tool (DDT), garage opener but of course you could improvised with a cloth hanger.

I'd make a post on this Friday about the tools, experiences and techniques.

I wish they were bashing fash, at least effectively doing so. The fact that fascist groups get to come out once a month to face antifascists, and their numbers increased overtime, proving that bashing fash ain't working. I'm not going risk my brown ass to be arrested so some white antifa can do a photo-op. When they get arrested they get no charge, when we PoC get arrested we go to prison. Bashing fash is a white privilege.

Asked r/anarchy101 while back about meritocracy is hierarchic, most of them just straight up claimed that meritocracy and competition were anarchy. I knew I was right about the ancom's shitty stance on this, so I didn't believe their bullshit.

This. I recently installed Lubuntu on my sibling's 20 years old desktop. Used to run XP, upgraded to 7, then 10 but no graphical support so I started to sneak in Linux. We've gone through 5 different distros until we settled in Lubuntu. My sib only uses it for Youtube so I upgraded the RAM and SSD, that was it for the desktop.
