That was a lot of fun yesterday. Sometimes I let the odd nitpicking, sarcastic, and sometimes downright rude comment through, if it suits me. It makes for good entertainment, and shows people up for what they really are. When I answer back it really pisses them off, and they can't help themselves to come back for more. Thank you to everyone who took part
I've never been a fan of Russell Brands humour, far too whacky for me. He also speaks at 100mph, and coupled with his very tight editing, I find it difficult to keep up. The beauty with yoootooob is you can slow things down by clicking on the little cog at the bottom (settings), and tweak the playback speed. I choose 0.75. That allows me to digest the information presented. Choosing the subtitle option is a help as well.
He might not be everyone's cup of tea, but he sure does hit the nail on the head with his ranting. With 5.71million subscribers, 47k likes on this video, and 12,695 comments, he has built up quite a substantial following. I'm surprised he is actually still on yoootooob, as many others speaking along similar lines have been banned.
In this video he talks about what is really going on with gas prices. Is it the war, or a stranglehold by record profit making global corporations who have more power than the Governments. He lists eight links in the description, to articles and documents which back up his analogy. It is worth 15 minutes of your time, then draw your own conclusions.
The weather yesterday was very haphazard. Sunshine then black clouds, and a massive storm. It eventually brightened up at 4pm and I did a local walk. This morning it is sunny and I have a Billy dog walk later this afternoon. The garden keeps calling me, so I go out and do a bit of trimming up, just to keep things tidy.
There will be no more verbal punch ups, let's keep this a happy place. That's until someone really annoys me, then I will answer back. I will not crawl into a hole and lick my wounds. Sometimes ignoring trolls works, sometimes you've just gotta stand your ground.
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip. ilona
