Another one with Big Clive doing something fundamentally stupid.


Yes, he's (slightly) electrocuting himself to see if he can let go.  (As I understand it, the voltage is critical here.  The mains voltage in North America is 110-125 volts, which causes stronger muscle contractions than the 220-250 volts used in much of the rest of the world.  Clive, who works with this stuff all the time, as he works with things like event lighting, says in the video that the higher currents of a 240V arm-to-arm shock makes it less dangerous because it's less likely to put you into lethal ventricular fibrillation if something or someone gets you off the shock.)

In the "It couldn't happen to a more deserving guy" file...

I was perusing Glenn Greenwald's twitter timeline and happened upon his retweek of this gem from The Guardian:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/mar/25/michael-avenatti-extortion-arrested-charged-nike?CMP=twt_gu

Michael Avenatti has been arrested for trying (and FAILING) to extort Nike.  Recall, this is the guy who helped Stormy Daniels to try and sue Donald Trump, which he lost so hard SHE had to pay HIS lawyer.

It seems this guy is just a cyclone of fail.  This seems almost certain to have already been in progress when New Your prosecutors decided not to pursue felony abuse charges against him.  They may have decided this would be just as effective and a whole lot easier to prove.

“When lawyers use their law licenses as weapons as a guise to extort payments for themselves, they are no longer acting as attorneys. They are acting as criminals.” Wow, doesn't this sound like every copyright infringement lawyer ever?

Warren Buffet being called out (indirectly).

The guy goes claiming that he wants to help America, yet can't be bothered to help his own tenants.
