Apparently cereal cafes are a thing. You pay $4-10 for a bearded tattooed vegan  "cerealologist" to serve you Lucky Charms.

Your reply is very scary. One could apply your logic to a large number of businesses. Just vote with your wallet and don't support them.

Yea, almost a dumb as me spending $80 on a shave soap when an Arko shave stick will do the job just fine. Done that got the T shirt. Everyone gets to spend their coin the way they see fit regardless of what others think of it. All depends on your POV.

Likewise. That and the fact that I typically eat my cereal in a pair of skivvies. And the privacy of my own home for obvious reasons. Smile

We had a string of westcoast coffeehouses with bikiniclad barristas. They all were shut down when the girls served more than lattes'.
I still don't know what a barrista is, or for that matter budtenders in cannabis dispensaries. I buy my coffee from a 40 something waitress named Blanche with peroxide blonde hair and  voice hoarse from camel cigarettes at a greasy spoon. In High School pot was sold by some college junior attending UCLA to avoid Vietnam who became a local prosecutor in the DA's office. He lost the last republican primary for congress.

I don't endorse terrorism, I'm a Veteran that actually got to fight terrorist, not just get deployed and tell my friends I did,I really did. I don't condone terrorism and nobody got hurt in the London cereal cafe so as it stands it's still just vandalism,  not terrorism.  Sorry I scared you, but I'm one of the good guys .

Terrorism is a tactic, not a political position. Knocking over Juniper Serra's statue is vandalism. Torching Carmel Mission with the potential for injury and death would be terrorism.

What happened in London at the cereal shop was vandalism.

If I was the one who  monkeywrenched 5 caterpillar bulldozers owned by a lumber company  pouring lapping compound into the engines  sitting idle at night the FBI considered it ecological terrorism. When a logger deliberately dropped a redwood on a protestor killing him it was ruled an accident by the  Humbolt Police. One man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter.

You have to laugh at the over use of the word terrorism today. I almost expect to hear it used to describe a young child's temper tantrum next.

Not strange, we see this in Oakland with the road blocking by protesters of the luxury buses that transport affluent tech workers, who live in Oakland,  to Silicon Valley. The same things are being protested as in East London. Gentrification , urban poverty, landlord power, massive inequality, capitalism.

Large swathes of people in Oakland are attuned to social protest the same in East London, an area that hosts Freedom Bookshop, the famous Anarchist bookshop. The strangeness is that the way capitalism is panning out is to create a surreal social  landscape. Here in Oakland its Tesla's, super cars and Bentleys driving past homeless encampments . In London its the trivial and superficial business of entertaining the affluent by indulging their childishness with kids cereal amidst social suffering .
