I hope you guys had the good sense to get paid at least double time up front for all this out of hours intense posting of propaganda on social media sites.

 

Not sure I agree with my tax dollars going towards the local (regional?) government thought police, but thats a whole other debate.

Nice video.

How much does one of those things weigh ?

I wonder how many MPG you get out of them ?

Do you happen to know their storage capacity ?

I'm often curious about things. :-)

What camera did you use ?

I'm just getting into video myself, having got a Lightdow 1080P camera.

Learning how to use Shortcut video editing software, what do you use ?

Against my better judgement I am going to ask this, is there another reason for sharing this other than that you can?

^I know there is at least one woman doing the job now, I saw her fairly recently. My point was that I'm surprised that this forum was chosen to share this video on. I would have thought Facebook would have been more apt so I was wondering if there was another reason. Note to self, don't let curiosity get the better of you!

A rubbish wee slide, brought to us by the rubbish who can do no more than inflict rubbish on us. Possibly trying to get promoted out of his rubbish job :roll:

Ever since we were supposed to endure 'Maggie's Idiot Guide To Bungee Cord Use' I try to avoid any video that features anything SIC related for health reasons - Watching one could well make me want to kill somebody.

Personally, I do not see any problem with posting video links.  You do not have to look at them  (I don't) and, it's no different to Frances' daily blog posting (I don't look at that either).

 

Not my "thing" but it's an open set of boards

and somebody might want to take a peek.


 

Live and let live.
