If you find yourself behind the wheel in a situation where you're being pursued, I hope you've familiarized yourself with the lessons in this fine 1983 booklet Getaway from anarcho-libertarian publishers Loompanics, now available for free reading at the Internet Archive.

Bicycling through a crowded city and avoiding infuriating traffic is a blessing, that is until you realize just how cumbersome toting around and storing a bike can be. Alternatively, skateboards are an ideal size for zipping through side streets and hauling around, but they just don't have the "oomph" you need to get you around… READ THE REST
Cleaning isn't fun. Sure, some people say it's therapeutic, but in a perfect world where everything is clean all the time, and we're willing to bet no one would lift a finger to make sure things are spotless in during "me time".
