So my biological father is an asshat; my mother honestly had shit for taste. Haven't talked to him since I was like 4 or 5, completely skipped out on child support, had a whole bunch of other kids (all with different women, skipped town soon after the birth of each, still living this way today) after the divorced, and, in general, is a shitty guy.
My wife doesn't have it much better. While her dad never actually touched her, her parents divorced because he was writing sex fantasies involving her. He also fell off the face of the earth after the divorce too. Even his own family can't find him.

We don't know if we want kids of our own yet but we do know, whether we do have kids or not, we will adopt sometime in the future. We don't want either of our father's names being passed on. So we got every family name form each side of our families and tried different combinations. Settled on one that does sound new-age as fuck but works.

As I found out this past week, people look offended when a guy is changing their last name. SSA office "Pam" was agitated and seemed offended that I would change my last name. Demanded that we have a "Name Change" order from our county court to do it, though this was not what the office told us on the phone (clerk on the phone said that we just needed our marriage cert and we could change it however we wished).

Went to the court house yesterday, filled out the form, and the clerk there had the same reaction as the SSA clerk. She kinda made it seem like there was a chance the judge wouldn't think not wanting my decedents to share my fathers surname was a good enough reason to sign off on the name change.

Why do people find it so offensive that a man would change their last name? Is it just because I'm trying to do this in a southern state?

I get that it is outside the norm but the reactions I got were totally unexpected.

It probably has more to do with the fact that they don't want to do any work than the specific source of that work.

That is probably a very large part of it, considering historically the woman took the husbands name with marriage. I suspect if you were somewhere even slightly more liberal (or would it be a touch less conservative?) you wouldn't be hitting this issue.
Force Sensitive Weenie Dog also makes good point: people gonna people, and people are lazy, especially when working .gov jobs where its hard to get fired.

FWIW I think you have a perfectly fine reason to change your last name; feel free to guiltlessly ignore the opinions of anyone who thinks otherwise.

This. Just dealt with the DMV in a southern state (completely black run office) with a non-standard request (like your request is).

They really don't like having double or triple work and will lie to you to send you away

A long time ago, one of the tripfags here posted some kind of homemade sci-fi film from 1990's/80's Seattle. Some kind of skateboarder science fiction dystopia thing. Bunch of homeless people living around shipping containers. I'm fuzzy on the details but a it was Lo-res and grey as fuck.

I remembered it because me and GF were talking about Pearl Jam playing Safeco field and I quipped that the most grunge thing left in Seattle now is the homeless population.

I've looked into the idea of growing sugarcane. It's fast growing, and apparently a very versatile crop. It serves as a wind break, you can chew it fresh, press syrup, make cane wine, make rum (fuck the police), and interestingly, smoke meat with it. Any idea how to manage it in an arid environment? Just add a shit load of water, or are there other concerns?
>> No. 112328 ID: c9fe43
You're not going to like it.

We grow it here in what amounts to swamps, then to harvest it, you burn the field, then harvest it.

I'd try making it part of an aquafeature on your property before widescale farming the shit.

They grow it in AZ so ... I guess it's possible?

I noticed that website! Based on what I've read since posting that, I think what I'll do is build a retaining wall out of cinder block so I can flood the shit in like six inches of standing water.

The murder and dismemberment of Lauren Giddings, which has attracted its share of attention from cable television docudramas in the years since the 2011 slaying, will be the subject of an upcoming episode of “Dateline NBC.”

A TV production crew along with the popular newsmagazine’s correspondent Keith Morrison visited Macon in April and spoke to several locals familiar with the case, including police and prosecutors.

The one-hour program is scheduled to air on NBC the night of June 8.

Giddings was 27 when she was killed in late June of 2011. Her torso was found dumped in a trash bin outside her Georgia Avenue apartment.

OPchan was not mentioned at all. I would imagine the intern or whoever was writing the script saw the cops thought they had a smoking gun with posts before they realized they were timestamped and just decided to leave that part out.

>Proponents say that the idea behind the various graphics that incorporate a thin blue line is that law enforcement is a Thin Blue Line that stands between chaos and order or between criminals and the potential victims of crime, and it is primarily used to show solidarity with police.
>Various emblems portraying a Thin Blue Line have been made, including a horizontal thin blue line across a Union Jack rendered in black and white in the United Kingdom, or on a black and white American flag in the United States.
Yet both parts of said flags are (portrayed) exactly the same, so basically it does not divide anything much. Subtle indeed.

Anybody else on OPchan kind of outdoorsy? Hunting? Fishing? Bushcraft? Picking berries? even hiking?
Want to be, but don't know how?
Any good or bad stories? Have you done anything recently or not so recently? What do you hunt with?

I've always hunted, if mostly casually. Lately though I've been getting back into it as hard as I can. Last fall I ended up with an average mule deer buck and two does as well as an antelope buck from my solo 5 day trip to eastern Montana. The deer were all quick and easyish besides retrieval but I spent 4+ hours crawling hundreds of yards through open country over prickly pear cactus and sagebrush to get close enough to the herd of 20 or so for a shot at one of the bucks while they grazed. I ended up making my longest hunting shot of just 275 yards with a model 70 .30-06 I had to borrow from my dad right before I left because my .308 Tikka had taken a dump and was giving me light strikes. Angle was a bit off and it ended up breaking the far shoulder and ruining a bit of meat on the passthrough, but that's just how it goes.

This trip made me realize that I much prefer the stupid old Nosler partitions that my dad loaded for years to my fancy accubonds. I have had some extremely mediocre results in the field with accubonds out of my .308 win whereas every single thing I shot at was dead within seconds with significant wound channels and full pass through resulting in faster blood loss (and easier tracking had it been necessary).

I can't find a picture of our car tent right now, but here's an old defunct shack I found while elk hunting. I have a couple one man ultralight shelters, but honestly they are not that fun.

I did a gear testing demo with a big agnes 2 person tent with my waifu last spring. I forget which model, but it's the one with only one door. Yeah, no thanks. Way too cramped for family style camping.

Now for elk spike camps and stuff I'm probably going to get one of their 2 man shelters for just myself to replace my current stuff, but with TWO doors.

I miss hunting, so I picked up a bow recently and have been practicing a lot.

I've been learning how to make bows and arrows to support this cheaply and I'm discovering a relaxing hobby in turn.

My hunting goal is simple but hard. I want to hunt long horn sheep and buffalo and make composite bows from their horns. Then hunt the next quarry with that bow. And so on.

I bought a nice Damon Howatt recurve on clearance through work a few years ago with grand plans that never materialized. Fancy easton carbon arrows with original wood look wraps and feathers, really heavy Grizzly single bevel broadheads, old school leather quiver etc. Work was stupid busy and I never got time to practice, and by the time I thought about it hunting season was too close to become proficient enough for ethical shots on an elk and whatnot.

Last Christmas I picked up a basic, but serviceable Bowtech Fuel package compound on clearance again for pennies with grand, but more realistic plans this time. Obviously it still requires lots of practice, but I figured it would be easier to get started on a compound with sights and stuff.

Unfortunately I finally restarted and am just about through the enlistment process for da army after 9 years of fuckery and am probably going to miss this season.

I'm in button down mode for discounted stuff I could use from work before I leave. Planning on a Big Agness Tiger Wall UL3 to replace my itty bitty Six Moon Designs Skyscape so my dumb little spike camps are actually like...useable. I really wanted to take a week or two off in September when zee elkies are talking and pop into the Bob Marshall wilderness or something cool and work from a little camp.

Say hello to Frankenbow. A Ben Pearson aluminum compound riser from '70s and Samick Sage 40# recurve limbs. It currently measures at 45# at 28", the length of the riser seems to add 5lbs to any limbs I add.

I'll take a better picture eventually.

I also have an old PSE compound that Cable gave me. I call it Trash Bow (lovingly) because he pulled it out of a dumpster some 14 years ago. It's pretty fun too

One of the saddest and most infuriating things about living in 21st century America is the open lawlessness of the people are the top levels of government. Every year it gets worse, every year they get more brazen and every year more members of government further down the chain follow the lead of those above them and the problem spreads in disease like fashion.
Maybe its just the optics because we have so much more media these days, but sometime I feel like living out of the way somewhere in some no-name nation might be safer and more relaxing.
