There was no need at all for this situation to exculate to the out come,
I don't know who, if anyone was in the wrong as regards right of access down this lane, it definitely looks like the 2 men were armed and wanted this to happen that were on foot, and possibly their vehicle could be the one in front of tractor blocking the lane.
Now one side of me would want to get out and slap them , however,
I would of dropped the loader down, run at the vehicle pushed it out of the way, and carried on doing as much damage as was needed to pass, at that point call the police to the scene, as it was all caught on video, and the tractor was trying to reverse back out of the situation, and the men were armed, I would use the excuse of.
I feared for my own safety under the stressful situation, and as I could not go back, the only way was forward, and as glass was hitting my face, and the threatening manner of the men continued, I had no other choice me Lord

Google is blocking me until I verify my age with a credit card or driving licence. It says I am too 82! Copies won't upload because the connection is so slow. Or are they scammers? Anyone else fed up with all this damned security?
shouldnt need a credit card or divers licence, it just asks for your date of birth when you make a google/youtube account (At least it did when i made mine) then you can watch as many profanity laden jethro videos as you want ;)

Well, apparently it is all legal. Google was caught in some law case and got fined for distributing stuff to children that they shouldn't have. Couldn't be bothered to read the full story but it does seem that they have to check ages. Too late! I was corrupted a long time ago when I was young!

Yep it stops the kids seeing some of the more dodgy stuff on YouTube, Videos with a lot of swearing get marked as restricted too.
Only takes a minute to make your own account so you can see everything.
Seems like a good idea to me.
