    Hunger strikes are stupid imo. You're basically doing your enemy's job for them. It's something a person chooses to do to their self rather than being forced to do by what they're protesting.

    When I was attending university we learned about this young woman who spent two years straight living in a tree to protest clear cutting and removal of historic trees. Incredible feat, she truly has nerves of steel.

    workers/farmers, etc, that regularly enter the forests of india have started practicing "tiger deterrence": painting large eyes onto the backs of their hat or helmets. it seems the cats won't stalk them when they think they're being watched, as the attacks are all from behind.

    I hope if I am ever in such a horrible situation as any of these people, that I show such strength & courage that they did. Very nice video, Simon & gang. Great work as usual.

  27. N. Smiley

    Masamunya? You gotta put stuff on screen when you're not sure how to pronounce it.

    This was amazing. 3&4 were worth the while video.

    Would a video on Bobby Sands be interesting? You could include his writings and poetry for details. The only British elected MP to die of hunger strike at the hands of Maggie.

  30. LittleLady

    July 4, 2018 at 6:36 am

    I’m so confused. How can you live 15 Year’s without food or water. It’s not possible.

  31. Oldenweery

    July 4, 2018 at 6:51 am

    And the Indians complained about British troops opening fire on unarmed Indian civilians? Apparently, Gandhi's teachings have been diluted.

    Fasting is to hungry strike as working part time or seasonally is to working. …is TopTenz to nonclickbait.

    Normally agree with most of Simon's postings but the Wolverhampton nursery school teacher Lisa Potts should have featured here too.

    Incredible people. There's also a guy in Cambodia who digs up and disarms land mines using nothing but a Leatherman tool. He's disarmed like 20,000 land mines left over from the numerous conflicts in his country. A real life Hurt Locker guy.

  46. Idalia May

    July 5, 2018 at 6:36 pm

    Simon…. Y'all used a Cheeta stock image when talking about a leopard from India. facepalm

  47. Keith Schricker

    July 7, 2018 at 12:54 am

    Ok, have the click bait of this somebody who went on a 15 year hunger strike…. That would be a weight loss program for a Saudi shut in.

    Human bodies don't last long without food. Getting cathed isn't a hunger strike.
