Old white man of the day

When a horse called Joe took too much of a liking to using a car as a scratching post, owner Bill Gallagher scratched his head for a solution.

He devised a cunning electrical circuit that delivered a shock whenever the horse rocked the vehicle. This quickly cured the problem and sparked the idea for his electric fence invention.

That was in the early 1930s. By the end of the decade, Bill had built his first electric fence and had made a long-term commitment to building a great business that redefined what’s possible for its customers.

Bill, as well as being an old white male, was a New Zealand farmer, inventor, manufacturing engineer, businessman and commercial fisherman.

In solidarity with the those in the world’s most despised demographic, WH has decided to ‘come out’ as an old white male. WH enjoys exercising the white-male privilege that Whaleoil provides for him by writing the occasional post challenging climate change consensus; looking at random tech issues that tweak his interest, as a bit of a tech nerd; or generally poking the borax at anyone in public life who goes on record revealing their stupidity. WH never excelled on the sports field because his coaches never allowed him to play in his preferred position on the right-wing. WH also enjoys his MG.
