I kinda thought the squatters needed a place to live anyway, and as long as they observed the house and kept it in the same condition (except where they messed up the kitchen cabinets), I believe everything was okay. At least the squatters got a huge experience living in a nice house before they had to leave or get chased out.

A friend of my wife's, a Brazilian surfer who lived in Hawaii for many years, was working cleaning rich people's houses on Oahu.

She showed up with her daughter one day to clean a rental house that had been vacant for a while. She was beaten to death with a bat, and her 8 year old daughter tied up, by a couple who were squatting in the house.


Right after this happened, her best friend (also a close friend of the wife) was bitten hard by a shark while surfing but did not lose her leg due to being very lucky.

No particular moral or point in telling this story, but jesus h. fuck, be careful, kind, and lucky out there.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
