    Seems appropriate that something typed up in courier 10 point should be hosted on Angelfire :)

    The Anarchist Cookbook seems wrong to me, surely anarchists are too thick skinned to make a decent meal from.

    Interesting documentary on Netflix talking to it's author.

    Quite sad viewing really. The author seemed to suddenly get wracked with guilt after some pretty aggressive interviewing re Columbine etc. and died soon after the film was made.

    Wasn't there something similar called the Jolly Roger cookbook?

    Wait, what? Roger Cook book? :confused:

    Obviously the association of this kind of thing with anarchism is a little out of date given how attitudes have evolved within anarchism's various currents since the 1970s. Take for example this passage from the version of ‘The Poor Man's James Bond’ which Cienfuegos used to sell by mail order.


    We can see clearly how far attitudes have changed. Today random terrorism is strongly disapproved of and even homophobia isn't as tolerated as it once was.

    Can this be extended to Jamie Oliver cookbooks too?

    Plenty of info out there on how to build explosives and bombs it comes with a steep learning curve and if you are lucky you might end up in A&E if you are not lucky someone gets to pick up bits of you.

    his recipes work though.

    My chemistry teacher at school had a finger missing.

    All chemistry teachers should have bits missing. It shows commitment.

    He fell off a cliff and died when on a walking holiday.

    Bought mine from Compendium Bookshop in Camden back in the early 80's , that was a bloody good bookshop the likes of which I've never seen since. The dog eared book is in the loft which is where it shall stay. I think they had something about smoking bannana skins - which don't work I'm afraid.

    Blast from the past (of another kind...) for Compendium Bookshop though, that was a quality place.

    It was they had lots of dope coffee table books that I loved to swoon over such as the Great Book of Hash and the like.

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    Surely an anarchist cookbook would be full of different recipes for cooking babies?

    Nowadays it'd be bike repair, meeting facilitation, non-aggressive games for children, and an A-Z guide of oppression you might be suffering from/perpetuating.

    My chemistry teacher at prep school started a school-endorsed science competition to make rockets, to go either as high as possible from ground launch or as far along a horizontal wire as possible.

    We were given formulae for gunpowder and access to the chemical store and experiment chamber as long as the teacher or a lab tech was in attendance. Cue mixing and testing of various fuel mixtures, construction of fuselages and launchpads by schoolboys age 10 - 13. What could possibly go wrong? :hmm:

    It was as much fun and as dangerous as you'd expect, and of course the inevitable happened - there were numerous minor burns and skin and eye issues and then a kid blew a finger off and the whole thing was called off :D:facepalm:

    I still struggle to understand how anyone even considered giving the go ahead to the whole idea, but for a couple of glorious weeks most of the school was happily constructing horrifically dangerous, badly made, unpredictable, unsafe, high explosive, Blue Peter projectiles :facepalm:

    It's one my happiest memories of school, it was absolutely brilliant. Never in a million years would anything like that be allowed nowadays, and rightly so. It was incredibly irresponsible and hugely dangerous but such fucking brilliant fun while it lasted :cool:

    The effectiveness of his recipe books are not being questioned. The arrestable nature of the sort of person that owns them is.

    This guy is a hero. What a fix up.

    With a good lawyer surely it's going nowhere tho. Anyone got any links to support pages or legal aid support or funding?
