This is a normal post I've a bit of experience with electric fences, and that's genuine.
Funnier than that vid was a time when my brother gathered a lot of speed down a wet grassy hillside, hit an electric fence that pulled the poles out of the ground. As he fell he rolled he became wrapped up in the fence and couldn't escape. We had to find the battery supply about 200 yards away to disconnect it. Meanwhile he suffered considerably bigger shocks than those nancies.

Have a look on YouTube for a few people getting zapped. In my experience if you properly grab the wire then you get a good unpleasant wallop, but it's perfectly manageable.

This is a normal post I am a member of The Labour Party
I'm left wing in my outlook on the world and I believe that we'd be happier in a society with less inequality, not only of wealth, but to a greater extent of opportunity. If Jeremy Corbyn was a great populist with massive approval among the general population, charisma, easy connection to people and an ability to connect with the electorate this could be a powerful message. It would be difficult to actually implement and fairly pointless, but in the hands of a gifted populist it could be a great call-to-arms. As it is, the only opposition to The Conservative party is The Conservative Party. Jeremy Corbyn is actually acting as their marketing department.

I can't build up any enthusiasm for the PLP either. I think Kier Starmer's competent and effective but the party needs to say:

"The UK voted to leave because it was sold a load of bullshit by lying c**s with an agenda to radically reshape the country in a new ultra-free-market right-wing direction. If the population wants to exit the EU then it can be done, but there will be many people who lose out a great deal - most likely those already poor and leading precarious lives - and there's no guarantee the UK will be any better after the process is over. If Labour leads the exit we will put the needs of the majority first, not the wealthiest 1%. If that means compromises we will show full transparency in our decisions and explain what we had to trade off to obtain the best outcome possible."

This is a normal post From what I know of the PLP
they know they have nobody to propose who would make compromising worthwhile. The point about Blair was, whatever he is or did, he won. He fucking mashed the opposition. The moment he spoke you knew he was a cunt but you knew making a deal with him was worth it because he could deliver. You may have had Blair in the hotseat, but there were great people in the cabinet with him. Robin Cook, Claire Short, Mo Mowlem etc. BUT you only compromise your ideals if the outcome is actually worthwhile. Why take a Blairy if you're not even guaranteed to win?

I don't rate Corbyn, but without someone you listen to and go "yup, that's it. That will get Labour into power" what's the point of changing him?

I think you're probably right, he is. Except he's too stuck in his "the people will flock to the left in a crisis" blinkered outlook to realise, that come a crash/crisis, these days, they're more likely to flock to Aaron Banks "New England" party (when its formed), the result of which will be him up against a wall and shot for being incredibly dreary.

He's utterly useless. He couldn't find his way out of a wembley-sized paper bag, even if there were arrows pointing the way out, loudspeakers telling him where to go, and those kind of Olympic-volunteers guiding him. He'd seek a consensus from all working people in the bag following a workers collective meeting. By which point everyone trying to help him would have got so fed up they'd have left, leaving him stuck in the bag.

This is a normal post But why?
I'm no biker, but I thought half the fun of it was 'getting your knee down', so you don't need it at speed, and when you're stationery, you either use your foot or the kick stand.

Seems like an awful lot of clever technology that just replaces a small folding piece of metal that has worked fine for 100 years.

Not whingeing - genuinely want to know the answer...

This is a normal post As soon as I posted this, I realised that the important thing is that it's self-DRIVING
rather than self-balancing. Which would make more sense.

Although again, at speed, bikes need to lean. Presumably to make this work properly, they'd need some massive rotating counter-weight to simulate the driver shifting his weight around?

This is a normal post Maybe, but what does "raising awareness" achieve unless action is actually taken?
What has a twitter hashtag campaign ever actually fixed or improved? How much did the ice bucket challenge do for ALS sufferers or research? What, in reality, does Movember do for cancer research or sufferers? Pretty much every twat I've come across that does that doesn't even get sponsored, they just do it for a laugh. #BringBackOurGirls did nothing to accelerate those hostages' release, in fact many have still not been returned. But at least a lot of westerners got to show that they cared. Big deal.

When pushed on exactly how he was going to achieve this, the campaign organiser went on a naked wanking rampage through San Francisco, filmed by passers-by.

The warlord might be still hanging entire villages from trees but, as a method of raising awareness, a pavement wankathon meltdown has never been bettered.

This is a normal post Quite a lot. Certainly more than not doing anything at all.
You make a good point, there is a problem with charity saturation and the fact that sharing something on Facebook isn't the same as actually *doing* something, but Movember are very open about where the money goes. Try this link: https://uk.movember.com/report-cards
One of the big things they did was set up a database of research that allows far greater international collaboration on time-consuming research. There's a ton more. Recent years have seen them shift from focus on testicular/prostate to general male health (including things like disproportionately high suicide rates), helping people with depression and stuff. They do good work.
For ALS, they hadn't anticipated raising so much so quickly thanks to such overwhelming support. It was kind of a nice problem to have, but it was a genuine problem to work out how best to spend it - they have now been able to fund huge amounts more research than existed previously.
And awareness is important.
As for #BringBackOurGirls, well, I suppose one other thing it has achieved is highlighting that we don't have any influence over foreign policy and that there are things that good intentions can't fix.

virtue signalling is when people 'like' people doing good things. Or say 'look how terrible these bad people are, bad, bad'. Clicktavists are the saddest people in the world.
If they were actually doing good things no one would have a problem,
