    "You know, you sure have a funny way of getting your kicks. REALLY funny!"

    If you ever wondered how your grandpa jacked off in an era before porn was legalized, here's a funny movie from Russ Meyer you can educate yourself with. Although it must have value beyond defying the censors by delivering tits to straight men too ugly/old for all the free hippie ass being distributed at the time, as the very gay John Waters worships it as his…

    “All the land to our left and all the land to our right now belongs to us.”

    It amazes me how much “hard-earned property" in the West can be traced back to illegitimate proclamations like this. It took no work to look at land and say it is yours, but at the time, no one else was looking. Then later the records got messy, somehow it all got integrated into the capitalist system under your name, and hey, now you…
