VloMo08 : day19 – taxi drive to work

this is the drive to work in a local taxi. I should have kept the camera running as he overcharged me and wanted me to use him every day to & from work. the drivers always ask this. they ask how long you’re here for then tell me they’ll give me their number so I can call them. the previous 2 nights it’s cost Rs50 to drive home – in peak hour traffic in a local taxi. this ride cost me Rs250. but I got a handwritten receipt from him. I forgot to ask / check that the meter was running. usually if the driver doesn’t try to rip me off I give them more money, just for being nice. I shouldn’t complain too much, Rs50 is about $1.50 and $250 is $7.75 so both are very cheap, it’s just the multiplication factor – this morning’s taxi driver was 5 times as expensive!

one thing I’ve noticed whilst driving to work is that there’s a particular couple of blocks where the Muslim people gather. the women wear the full head scarves and are covered head to toe in black. but the fabric is much lighter than in Israel – it’s a black saree with light-weight sheer black fabric over the face. the hotel inner curtains are made of the same fabric but I can’t remember the name of it. it’s very soft. these sarees look great. I’d love to get a closeup photo of them but I wouldn’t ask anyone. I think their sarees are much nicer than the other colourful sarees I’ve seen. maybe I can buy one of these if I find where they get them – I think they must be expensive as they’re so beautiful. there’s a couple of women wearing them in the video but you can’t see the detail.

Rough Transcript:

I got an email from Jake: Hey Dan! I’m curious what you think about the new youtube comment system? I’m not really a fan, but maybe it’s because I haven’t really figured them out yet. Thanks, Jake

Thanks Jake! So, my girlfriend recently sent me a link to a cute little Ukelele diddy by Emma Blackery. Maybe you’ve seen it…

I think she pretty accurately sums up the way we all feel about Google trying to force their failed social network down our throats. I mean, I’m all for improving the comments system, putting the comments that are most relevant to me right on top, but why does YouTube need anything but YouTube to do that? Like, why can’t they use who I’m subscribed to rather than some social network nobody has time for? Honestly, I’m a little creeped out. The multinational intelligence conglomerate that is Google doesn’t just want us to act in a very specific way–it’s like they feel entitled, they’re offended that we might choose to not live in the digital bubble they’ve made for us.

I was recently watching fellow-YouTuber Hank Green’s take on all this nonsense, and while I agree with the general seething sentiment of his video, there was one thing he said that is so wrong it makes the baby Jesus cry.

Now, he’s right that there’s nothing we can do in the short term to make YouTube change course, but if we play a long game we can absolutely chip away at Google’s ability to bully its users. The only reason a video sharing website is in a position to strong-arm its users into adopting a particular social network is because they have a monopoly. If there was another video site with even 5% market share, YouTube would think twice. It’s time to start giving other video sites a chance. I’m not saying that we should stop using YouTube per se, but I, for example, from this day forward will also be uploading my content to Vimeo and DailyMotion–links in the description. I will also, from this day forward, be attempting a new moneymaking model for pogobat, because who needs ads!? Especially when YouTube takes a 45% cut anyway! Shit’s ridiculous. Pogobat is now ad-free in hopes that you’ll support my endeavors via Patreon, which is like Kickstarter for recurring things so rather than giving, like, twenty five bucks to a project once, you give, like, a twenty five cent tip each time I make a new episode. There’s a link to my Patreon in the description, and now an animated quandary from MoonShoesPatty!


I got this email from Utkarsh in Mumbai: hey i like your videos… but yes, ur talks are sometimes stupid…. some are great… i am a diehard fan… of batman.. then i made a benchmark.. to be the best i am pulled towards getting better… in the The Dark Knight Rises though i agree it was fiction movie i feel motivated. that never give up.. however… what can be done now is this… raise ourselves… RAISE OURSELVES… how? i believe big steps need to be taken… but first we need to get better…
i am sure, u have many more strengths just like rubies cube… which u can share…
yeaaah… i have a question… what can be done? ask this in a video.. “what kind of world do you want to make” do reply, what do you think…

Utkarsh from Mumbai: The Dark Knight movies are badass. I can totally see where you would be inspired by them and am totally flattered that you’re drawing parallels between them and my videos. But the reason Bruce Wayne is able to be Batman is because of how filthy rich he is. I’m sure you see this in Mumbai: the distribution of wealth on this planet is all kinds of out of whack and I don’t know that Batman is really helping with that. They’re fun movies, but in the real world leaning on high-powered billionaires doesn’t keep us safer. Time and again they prove that their only priority is staying rich and powerful. So yes, we must raise ourselves… RAISE OURSELVES… by passing progressive tax policies and raising the minimum wage.

Thousands Of Farmers In India Blockade Highways Protesting New Agricultural Laws

NEW DELHI (AP) — Thousands of protesting Indian farmers blockaded highways across the country for several hours Saturday to press their demands for the repeal of new agricultural laws that have led to months of massive protests.

The protesters used tractors, trucks and even boulders to blockade the roads. They carried banners and flags denouncing the laws, which they say will leave them poorer and at the mercy of corporations.

“We will keep fighting till our last breath,” said 80-year-old Jhajjan Singh, a farmer at a protest site in Ghazipur. Prime Minister Narendra “Modi should know that either he will remain, or we will.”

Authorities deployed thousands of security forces mainly outside India’s capital, where farmers have camped at three main sites for more than two months. The farmers have said they won’t leave until the government rolls back the laws.

Saturday’s blockade started at noon and lasted for three hours. No violence was immediately reported.

Members of different political parties participate in a protest against new farm laws in Mumbai, India, Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021. 

Several rounds of talks between farmers with the government have failed to produce any breakthroughs. The government has said the laws are necessary to modernize Indian agriculture.

On Friday, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar defended the laws in Parliament, dampening hopes of a quick settlement as he made no new offer to resume talks with the farmers.

The protests turned violent on Jan. 26, India’s Republic Day, when a group of of farmers riding tractors veered from the protest route and stormed the 17th century Red Fort. Hundreds of police officers were injured as were scores of farmers. One protester died.

Farmer leaders condemned the violence but said they would not call off the protest.

Since then, authorities have heavily increased security at protest sites outside New Delhi’s border, adding iron spikes and steel barricades to stop the farmers from entering the capital.

Meanwhile, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights called on authorities and protesters to exercise “maximum restraint.”

“The rights to peaceful assembly & expression should be protected both offline & online. It’s crucial to find equitable solutions with due respect to #HumanRights for all,” the UN body said in a tweet late Friday.
