Doncha just love the thread drifts on this forum. :y :y :y

This is almost as good as a White Goods thread!  ;D
I'm thinking of getting a new microwave, but it will probably be black.
Black ones are faster, as someone used to say... :y

Agreed.  Both selfishly for myself - can't beat a nice bit of cow - but also for the farming industry that has had a rough time, and has a load more shit to come  :'(


I can see the usual do-gooders and lentil munchers will see it as a reason to ban meat.

We have to ban meat anyway because climate change. ::)

Simplz. Leave instructions for the hearse to be driven on or above the limit. last one to the wake buys everyone a drink.
Worked for my mate Johnty. RIP. :y


We do have a problem with far too many old unproductive people living far too long. It is not sustainable and a huge burden on the taxpayer.

With more of them being ploughed over by speeding hearses there'll be no problem. :y

It's really hard for doctors and nurses to do that, and builders, waiters, waitresses, etc.. I'd wager more people are employed in "non-desk" jobs than are employed in desk jobs.

That said, even with desk jobs there has been a recent trend of ending home working as companies like HP and BT suddenly realised they were paying for very large offices that were almost always empty people to sit around in their pyjamas posting on car forums.. so instead of ditching the office, they told everyone to get their arses in to the office..

He types. From his desk. At home.  ;D

FTFY. :y

Wife's 66 plate astra diesel is not (Euro 6) but my 14 plate (Euro 5) is.

Not many fields to plough inside the ULEZ - no problem. :y

Nah, nothing rusts in Spain where they're made ::)
Ahh! Rust proofing is clearly the first job after siesta + sherry. ::)

Allegedly. But I suppose only time will tell  ::)
I found out about that little gem about a week after using an '07 plate model to tow a glider to Aberdeen. :o


EDIT: Lovely tow car, BTW, with the rear attached, at any rate. :y

You might be on to something there.  I didn't realise the BIK rates for LCVs are so low.  Hmmm, Merc X class, anyone?  ::)

Id buy the Navara (exactly the same car) for several grand less personally. But the ideas sound.

Have they figured out how to stop them splitting in two yet? :-\

It's because of the urbex sites that we keep quiet about which one we are restoring, we don't store anything there and we have a fair amount of security but there's plenty of idiots about.

An easy way to waste half your life visiting those, I find. ;D

Sat nav error, can't trust them.😂
You jest, but the stupid handheld ones can easily get the wrong direction after stopping for any reason, eg traffic, and won't correct until its convinced of direction of movement.  During this time, it can give duff instructions.  They should be banned.
Because we all know just how good built in ones are ;D
They're great when you accidentally drive through a wormhole and end up back in 1978, because the maps are then perfectly up to date. ;D

There's an ROC post a couple of miles from me on some farm land.

Popped in to Hack Green nuclear bunker the weekend before last. Well worth a visit if you're passing and they have quite a bit on info. on the cold war ROC bunkers there.

Wait until you start on Tek 'scopes. Think I'm on 7 currently. I need help. :-\

I wouldn't mind a nice, relatively compact, modern scope.. but they usually come with an accompanying price tag!

Sounds like you "need" a DSO Quad.

http://wiki.seeedstudio.com/DSO_Quad/

Not too expensive and great for using in the footwell of a car, etc. I've even used it to debug my mate's glider engine tacho from the back seat while in flight. (turned out to be a crank sensor issue, of course!)

Not so great if you need a lot of bandwidth, but a must have gadget none the less. :y

Good thing about Scopes is its one of the few Tools that you can use One to fix the Other One.  :)
Precisely. This is what I tell Mrs. KW.  :y
