Cold, Hard Truth. From a Long Way Off.

But undeniably it (the Confederate Flag) has also been the rallying banner of an active and successful resistance to racial equality, a celebration of the renaissance of white power, a symbol that the struggle did not end in 1865.

The Mando Footloose is not a bicycle because it doesn’t have a way for the rider to directly drive the wheel. This is not an ebike, it’s an electric scooter with a pedal powered battery charger. This is really very silly because there is so little efficiency in charging the battery this way. It is far more efficient for the rider to drive the wheel. And when the battery is dead, it can’t be pedaled.

I can’t seem to embed it, but there is a good video at the BBC.
