No, I doubt that's what he means. Not sure how you extrapolated that from it. Here's my thoughts:

Gambling is undeniably exploitation. It's based on gamification, appealing to the parts of the brain that love getting rewarded, and profiting from that appeal. If you gamble, you have surely heard the expression, "the house always wins", before. As most people know, including gamblers, you won't walk away from gambling with a profit, and if you do, you're very likely to become addicted, and throw that profit back into the system.

What you love about gambling can be found elsewhere, without you selling your soul.

Furthermore, anarcho-communism doesn't outright dismiss the idea of a currency system, but rather the exploitative nature of currency as it exists today (banking, fiat currency, centralization, stock markets and on and on).

I believe you would come to your own natural understanding of these concepts if you actually read into what anarcho-communism is, and what it isn't. Try reading some of the "big bangers", there's plenty of litterature to be found all around you.

I'd recommend Elementary OS over Ubuntu and Xubuntu! It's a fork of Ubuntu, so mostly everything applies, but it's such an upgrade, and has been my trusty daily driver for the last 2 years.

It's also FOSS, which is nice

This isn't a game of kill or be killed, survival of the fittest. If we hope to see any positive change in this world, we have to start treating our fellow workers with solidarity - and stealing from them is quite the opposite. We're all in this struggle together, and have a common enemy (whether this specific person knows it or not).

One section is dedicated to political philosophy and psychology, one is all other kinds of philosophy (primarily Nietzsche), one is fiction, and the last section is shitty books that my roommates brought. I'll see if I can grab a picture when I get home.

I've been working a maternity cover as IT responsible for the past month, but the person I was covering for will be back in a week or two, meaning I'd be left searching for jobs again. So, I sat down and ran through every single server and subdomain we have, and found a shitton of very serious vulnerabilities, easily exploited them, showed my findings to the boss, and offered to fix it if they would hire me for one more month - and they fucking did it! What's more, I also offered to revamp their whole website and everything connected to it, which would give me half a year more, and they said they'd have to talk about it internally, but that it was very likely.

Yee fucking haaa, one more month with food on the table!

If you tap 8 times on your build number in Settings>System Information (or something along those lines), developer settings will be unlocked, allowing you to unlock your OEM.

e: You probably already tried that, since somebody else mentioned it. Here's a quite well-thought-out guide specifically for your phone, that i found online for installing TWRP, which you need in order to install Lineage, as i wrote earlier.

Downloads: TWRP (that's an unofficial build i found on xda) & ODIN

Step 1 – Download TWRP Recovery package for Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime and extract this file anywhere in your computer.

NOTE: Make sure you select the appropriate file above for your Galaxy Grand Prime model.

Step 2 – Download ODIN which will help you to install CWM Recovery on Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime G530H.

Step 3 – Switch OFF your phone. Now go to Download Mode. How? Press and hold the Volume Down + Home buttons together, and then press the Power button till you see the construction Android robot and a triangle. Press Power again to confirm to enter into Download Mode.

Step 4 – Make sure you have your Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime USB drivers installed on your computer.

Step 5 – Open ODIN on your computer. Connect your phone to your computer while your phone is in the Download Mode.

Step 6 – If your phone is connected successfully, one of the ID:COM boxes will turn yellow with the COM port number. This step might take some time.

Step 7 – Now select the following file that you have to flash/install on your phone. This file will be found from the extracted file in Step 1.

Click on ‘PDA’ / ‘AP’ and select the CWM package file you downloaded in step 1 for your phone.

Step 8 – In ODIN, check the Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time options, if not already.

Step 9 – Now click on the Start button in ODIN. Installation process will start and would take a few minutes to complete.

Step 10 – After the installation is completed, your phone will reboot into Recovery Mode automatically and install the root package / files. Your ID:COM box will also turn green.

Step 11 – After you see the home screen, unplug your phone from the computer.

That’s it! Your Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime has now been flashed with TWRP Recovery. To enter Recovery Mode, shut down phone and then hold down the Home + Volume Up buttons and press the Power button for about 5 seconds to enter Recovery Mode.

It's difficult to write a complete response, since the process depends very much on which phone you're installing on, but it goes a bit like this:

You'll need:

  1. A PC of some sort
  2. A cable for connecting your phone to the computer (preferably the original USB cable that came with your phone)
  3. The appropriate ROM for your phone from the LineageOS website
  4. The TWRP installer and image from the TWRP website
  5. An unlocked bootloader (you'll have to ask DuckDuckGo if and how your bootloader can be unlocked, this is very device-specific)
  6. A rooted phone (this is quite an easy process, but again, device-specific)

Here's an overview of what you'll want to do (again, use a search engine to find more details on the individual steps for your phone - I'm just trying to give an overview):

  1. Make a backup of everything that you don't want to lose
  2. Install ADB and Fastboot on your PC (download for Windows, and for Ubuntu/Debian, first add the appropriate repo (sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools && sudo apt-get update), then install using APT (sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot)
  3. Flash TWRP (the custom recovery that you downloaded earlier) onto your device, using ABD/fastboot
  4. Transfer the LineageOS ROM to your phone, reboot into TWRP (recovery mode), select Install, find your LineageOS ROM - and the rest is pretty self explanatory.

Notes: If you want Google Apps (Play Store, Google Maps and so on), you'll want to install the GApps module too, which you can find on the LineageOS website.

I know it sounds like a lot, but it can be done quite safely in an hour or two - and it is worth it!. Good luck!

Not even close. Besides, you should probably get that expiration date fixed.

Have you tried Ayahuasca

No, but I've tried DMT, changa and most other psychedelics more times than I can count on four hands, so I'm hoping that I can contribute a little.

Is it possible to order Ayahuasca and have it sent to the US

It is, but it's not a good idea. I get my LSD off of Nightmare Market on the deep web, because it's so difficult to detect in the mail, and the vendors are usually pretty good with their stealth. Mushrooms i grow myself. Aya, I'd buy the ingredients (which are often legal) and brew it myself. I'm planning to do this myself at some point. Here's the ingredients for the recipe that I'm going to follow: Jurema (the root bark from Mimora Hostilis), some powdered Syrian rue seeds, vinegar and eggs. If you can't get Jurema, perhaps try looking for Psychotria Viridis.

Should you always have a guide when doing Ayahuasca

That depends a lot on what you want to gain from the experience. A shaman guide would be able to hold your hand throughout the trip, keep you safe and take you to the other side intact - but you would be seeing what the shaman wants to show you. I personally prefer finding my own path, and have enjoyed psychedelics alone immensely (but I don't recommend that if you have no or little experience), or with a very close friend or two. You should at the very least make sure to have someone sober around, who knows what to do if things go south.

It is possible to obtain/use DMT without obtaining it from a plant

Yeah, you could get if off deepweb. It's not as difficult as you might think. Just remember to tumble your coins, use a VPN and encrypt your messages with the vendor properly.

Does DMT confer the same benefits as Ayahuasca

You get what you deserve, and what you need. That's all. DMT is of course not as long-lasting, and is not as bound in reality, because you literally move out of your body, through the tunnel and into a whole new universe, completely forgetting that your body is actually still lying in your couch, looking as dead as a stranded whale. I can't speak much on Aya, but at least to me, DMT isn't very helpful in helping and healing yourself, as it is much more spiritual, and has nothing to do with the world you see around you every day.

e: I'd just like to add, that if you've never done any psychedelics before, Aya might be a little too rough a place to start. Perhaps go with some mushrooms first, it'll help you get used to the reality of disintegrating reality, the visual hallucinations and the mindspace that comes with losing your mind temporarily.

What do you think about the anthroposophy and biodynamic farming, and in your perspective, is it important that a biodynamic farmer knows and respects the anthroposophical ideas? I hope you're qualified to answer this question, although it is a little far fetched; it's something I've been thinking about lately.
