    So, whose into anarchism/permaculture/primitive skills/anarchism/fermentation...

    I don't like it because it makes me feel like crap, especially the morning after eating salted food since I'm not used to it. It's like a hangover. So I'm not anti-salt or anything, I'm just personally not into it. In theory, sauerkraut doesn't sound so bad but I've only tried it once or...

    So, whose into anarchism/permaculture/primitive skills/anarchism/fermentation...

    I'm into most things relating to sustainable living and self-sufficiency. I have at least a general interest in most of the things mentioned here, except fermentation because I don't eat/drink/buy salt, milk, alcohol, grains or refined sugar. Although, eventually I might like to learn how to...

    Those people are awesome. Especially since they made that tractor thing with interchangeable parts so it can do pretty much every job.

    do you vote?

    I never thought I'd say this, but I don't plan to vote ever again. On my 18th birthday, the first thing I did was register because I thought it mattered. I can't even begin to tell you guys how disappointed I am now that I understand how all of this works.

    Yeah, I've read about people with power systems like that. I found some land that I really like in Nevada with a small creek but I wonder if it would be too slow to work. If we move there, I'm sure we'll at least give it a try.

    Oh man, that's rough. :( I want to keep a low profile whenever I can to avoid all interactions with the police.

    Deodorant Alternatives

    Yeah, baking soda works great as deodorant. Wash and dry your pits then dust on a little dry baking soda with a makeup brush. Sometimes I mix it with corn starch which makes the powder feel smoother but doesn't last as long. Baking soda on its own can last for several days without reapplying.

    Anti-Civ discussion

    The only things that really matter are sustainability and quality of life, whether we rebuild a civilized way of life or revert back into hunter-gatherers or both after the crash. I just hope it's not more of the same and that the change comes soon.

    DMT(and other hallucinogenic drugs)

    I've bought Mimosa hostilis root bark incense online and everything else one would need to extract DMT tends to be cheap/locally available, if they were so inclined. (I'm not admitting that I make it and/or plan to sell it but just out of curiosity...) For those of you who have it available...

    how to deal with mainstream thinking and anti-anarchists

    I can understand how you've gotten to this conclusion and agree with that to a certain point, but what about me? Not everyone who shares my views has avoided conventional education. I went to what many would consider to be a decent school when I was a kid and was an honor student for most of...

    living off grid in a box truck

    I was just looking at how to make a pot cozy and that definitely seems worthwhile. I didn't realize how effective they are. We eat a lot of raw food, but when I do cook, it tends to be things like soup that take a long time at a low temp which is perfect for something like this. Very cool...

    how to deal with mainstream thinking and anti-anarchists

    I didn't even see your original post, bote. All I saw was "please delete me" and I thought you meant you wanted someone to delete this thread in general and that hurt my feelings because that's all the feedback I'm used to getting from people. They'll show lots of interest and spend plenty of...

    how to deal with mainstream thinking and anti-anarchists

    What do you mean, bote? I assume this is a negative reaction to what I wrote, but why? Is there something specific that gets to you? Or is it just an issue specific to forum rules or something along those lines?

    DIY Insect Repellent

    This is good to know! I've heard of applying plantain to mosquito bites but I never thought of making bug spray. I usually go without because I don't like the commercially made stuff and end up feeling miserable.

    Blogging

    Omg, $20 in a day from clicks? That's awesome! I tried to put google ads on my site, but they wouldn't approve it, probably because of content. I think they assumed illegal activity was being discussed when it actually wasn't. Although, I do use Amazon Associates since I spend a lot of energy...

    any tattoos?

    I'm a big fan of functional art, so my favourite tattoo is my eyeliner. Even on my worst days, my eye makeup is perfect. :) Although it hurt almost more than I could bear, especially the bottom lid, and I was afraid that I'd get my eyes poked out if I blinked since it's on the inside of my...

    Legality of carrying knives (and other weapons?)

    I like my pistol, but I'd also like to get a stun gun or some of these awesome blaster knuckles. Too bad tasers and stun guns are illegal for everyone in Michigan except for people like cops and security guards, even with a CPL. That's more than a little effed up. Yeah, really.

    Punks and Marriage

    I'm glad you brought up these points. I'm legally married (for now) and used to even go so far as to wear a big, stupid diamond ring. Now that I know more about what diamonds mean for less developed areas of the world, I can't support that trend. Even the so-called "ethical diamonds"...

    how to deal with mainstream thinking and anti-anarchists

    That's a really good point. I know it's a bit long-winded and not as sugar coated as the posts many people are accustomed to reading. Do you have any suggestions for the kinds of anecdotes or stories that might be effective here? I'm so used to reading about science related topics that my...

    I need some advice, friends. I wrote something for my blog about my stance on politics/finances, but I wanted to post it here first with people who I trust before sending it off to the general public. I also have a video that I'm working on editing for it. It's just bits of a final project...

    Thanks! Yeah, I know how that goes. If I wasn't going to get kicked out of my house in 4 months, I'd take a bit more time to plan and collect recycled materials as well. I know a guy who posted signs at several stores asking for used/leftover materials and a few different people ended up...

    handy herbal-remedy guide

    I just bought some dandelion root to test it out before I go digging them up. It's not bad. It tastes vaguely like peanuts and coffee. Plus, you need to slowly dehydrate/roast them at a low temp, so a solar oven would be perfect for roasting roots. The best DIY instruction (with lots of...

    Illegal immigration

    I recently downloaded the episode of 30 Days about one of the minutemen guys going to live with a family of illegal immigrants for a month. I think they picked the biggest d-bag they could find for the show and the sweetest family to get stuck with him.

    DIY for girl parts

    I use a diva cup most of the time, but one day I went into a community college restroom and there were boxes of tampons set out all over the sink area. Luckily I was alone in there so I loaded up as many as I could fit in my bag. I also found a basket of them in a Best Buy restroom before as well.

    Solar Oven?

    Also, I remember making one in 2nd grade so it should be easy enough for anyone to make one. It's crazy that people sell these things for hundreds of dollars but you can make it out of mostly cardboard boxes, newspaper and foil.

    Yeah, we'll definitely put in railings for the bed and bathroom lofts. Although, I'm not sure exactly how I want them to look yet.

    buying land, going off the grid.

    I regularly check landsofamerica.com, landandfarm.com, and landwatch.com but I don't know how good those sites are for buying small parcels. I'm hoping to pay cash for 100+ acres in the middle of nowhere in about 5 years. That way taxes will only be a few hundred dollars per year as long as...
