these fucking pigs dont live in this city and dont give the faintest shit what happens to it. its just a big paint ball course for them. they have zero incentive to prevent any of the destruction and it wouldnt shock me in the least if they're responsible for almost all of it, if not directly then through all the usual techniques for instigation and provocation.

some people who i'm sure were just bullshitting suggested driving out to the suburbs and burning all their shit instead. wouldnt that be something

thinking of getting a haircut, lots to think about

The event was labeled as counterrevolutionary immediately after its occurrence by the Communist Party's Central Committee and served as a gateway to the dismissal and house arrest of then–Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping, who was accused of planning the event, while he insisted that he came to Tiananmen Square only for a haircut. The Central Committee's decision on the event was reversed after the Cultural Revolution ended, as it would later be officially hailed as a display of patriotism.

oops, to be fair I don't give a shit about my exams, all I really care about is a paper I wrote about Settlers finally coming out. I'm trying to figure out a way to post it here without getting doxxed.

You ask an admin, and I in turn would ask that unless there is a pressing security concern, in the interest of Forums History people not render old threads incomprehensible by having their posts and account sent to the shadow realm. This forum still has not recovered from tpaine's self-immolation.

the cops cracked a local chiefs skull on the pavement over the most minor of traffic tickets, was on multiple videos, i dunno what i could be doing.

it was about a block from my home for many years. i had multiple interactions with cops there too. one time on the exact same street had a lady drive up and make a right hand red turn as i started crossing, actually grazing me. i lost my temper and just booted her car as hard as i could, put a bit of a dent on. i did not see the cop immediately behind us. the lady got out of her car and tried to shout at the cop to do something, he looked at me, said “you shouldn’t kick people’s cars” and left. you’ll never guess my skin colour

yeah a side effect of the shit going down in the states is that the media here are suddenly covering the usually ignored day to day brutalization of indigenous people, sort of. more than they were before at least.

everything is really tense and messed up right now, most of the indigenous lead and solidarity movements I'm in contact with are completely hunkered down because COVID will disproportionately impact their communities, and there's a huge emphasis on protecting elders from exposure to the virus because so much scarce remaining cultural knowledge risks being lost if they die suddenly. I'm not personally aware of any big actions planned, yet.

but the cops also just murdered a Mi'kmaq man in NB, and I expect a certain organization the RCMP likes to google are going to have some choice words to say about that. with the heightened visibility of all these recent murders and assaults I expect something has got to happen soon, it's just a question of what.

alternatively, maybe there's shit being planned but I'm a bit of a has-been and no longer a priority to keep in the loop lol

whatever the reason whenever i go out i get chatted up by women over 45. sometimes it is clearly because of fashion choices (cat themed clothing) or grooming choices (looking like i need a hug and warm meal), but it's a real specific demographic and it's every time. not sure if i ever 'had it' but it's great to know i still 'got it'.
