That looks different to the one we used, but it DEFINITELY had an effect. Cows did NOT like it. And it was MUCH more annoying to them than being poked with a stick.

Also, if they can be shocked by an electric fence (and they CAN), why wouldn't a cattle prod work?

Sheep apparently are rather a different matter.  They're notorious for ignoring electric fencing (unless recently shorn) due to their wool being an excellent insulator.  (Notice the type of shirt Big Clive is wearing in the video is conventionally made of wool.)

A most excellent speech by Sargon yesterday:


It is interesting that I can hardly tell the difference between the messages Sargon and Stephan are putting out these days.

Excellent mirco-critiques of stupid firearm accessories (including two that allow you to attach a pistol to a rifle or shotgun):

Tim Pool from a few days ago:


This is what happens when even a center-leftist actually looks at the data and declares that yes, capitalism is a good thing since it does so much good for so many people.

Here's the article he's working from:

https://ourworldindata.org/a-history-of-global-living-conditions-in-5-charts

I think this site has come up before.   Lots of good and useful stuff there.

When George Carlin quote were being added to this thread, this one seems to have been missed:

"Political Correctness is fascism pretending to be manners."  -George Carlin

And from Louis Rossmann (who, incidentally, is boosting the Libertarian candidate for NY Governor), borrowed from CBC News (who actually did a pro-consumer piece for a change):


On camera, getting an Apple employee to quote $1200+ for a repair Louis would do for free.  And without generating large quantities of e-waste.
