    It’s here! The company holiday party! When booze and indiscretions live together with your travel mug and ergonomic mouse. Any excuse to touch each other! You’ve eaten tons of appetizers, drank mediocre wine and flirted with all your single co-workers. You eyed that cute nerd front end developer who always comes into work at 10:26am. The new girl is cute and no one knows if she’s a crazy B yet so why not find out? Then there’s the company he-whore who has been running down HR’s list of sexual harassment no-no’s and trying do them all before the end of Q1.

  • Help the Million Person Project Bring Storytelling Training Across The World

      Million Person Project storytelling training in Brazil I’m swamped right now so I don’t have time to write anything wonderfully pithy about this so I’ll just let Heather Box from the Million Person Project tell you about it herself: Julian Mocine-McQueen and I believe that stories can unite the world. That is why we started the Million Person Project and are running an Indiegogo to be able to bring our storytelling training across the world and offer it pro-bono to activists, artists, teachers, farmers, leaders and future leaders. See, we believe that…
  • All the Things for Jews (and Lonely Gentiles) to Do on Xmas in SF

    This wonderful post was written by Corinne Avganim. Follow her SF shenanigans as @rinnells on instagram. WHAT’S A JEW (OR LONELY GENTILE) TO DO ON XMAS? Your Guide to Christmas in The City If you haven’t spent a Christmas in San Francisco, you’ve been missing something special. December 25th might just be one of my top five favorite days of the year in this city. Why? Well, for one thing…PARKING. All of the glorious, free parking. Being as no one here is actually from here, the city totally empties in a mad exodus for family and civilized torture. It’s like Burning Man week on…
  • Cigarettes Can Kill You (In More Ways Than One)

    Jennifer Nilenie - The Destitute-Social Critic
    18 Dec 2014 | 9:00 am
    Being a broke-ass smoker in New York you probably know the codes to buying loosie cigarettes in your local bodegas, and you probably know a guy, or two, who deliver those eight-dollar boxes. Smoking, just as everything else in this city, is hell-a pricey, and loosies have become a thing, like in many other barrios around the world. Buying cigarettes out of state provides an affordable price that allows people to sell the entire box, individually, and make a very good profit fast. For many New Yorkers this is a reliable source of income. In the light of the recent events in Staten Island, I…
  • Nut-cracking, Hot Buttered Fun & Free Buffet Tonight at Twin Peaks Tavern

    Stephen Torres - Threadbare-Fact Finder

    As the holidays go on Castro Street, certain places have become mainstays as December draws to a close.  The Midnight Sun, aside from its nefarious happy hour, is also know for its ornate holiday train installation, which managed to survive the recent overhaul.  The windows in Cliff’s Variety showcase all your shopping needs in irreverent detail.  The Castro Theatre screams with the sound of would-be Tyrolean governesses, and then there’s Twin Peaks. No, the geographical landmark doesn’t magically sprout fake snow and candy canes, but its namesaked watering hole sure as hell does. I…

  • Surviving with Type 2 Diabetes, by B.H.

    Hugh James Latimer
    19 Dec 2014 | 10:59 pm
    There have been numerous discussions in the survivalist and SHTF communities about diabetes, and while Type 1 has been discussed at length, Type 2, which is much more prevalent and equally life-threatening, usually gets little more than a mention and possibly a conclusionary statement that it can be handled/managed with diet and exercise. But what exactly does that mean? There’s no discussion on what such a diet-based treatment would entail in a SHTF situation. It’s not a simple disease to handle. Type 2 diabetes, if untreated or improperly treated, can lead to loss of life and/or limb,…
  • Letter: Wells and Pumps

    I’m curious as to if any other readers have had difficulty getting good information on hand pumps? I am not technical by any definition of the word, but here is my situation: I just purchased a homestead in the country with well water. The pump runs by electricity. I have spoken with several well drillers in the area, explaining that I want a hand pump for grid down. The stock answer is “get a generator”. I live in southeastern NC. I understand there can be problems with trying to connect a hand pump to an already existing electrically-powered well. I can afford to have a second well…
