The moment the drug addicts give a moment's thought to anyone but themselves I'm sure they'll get loads of sympathy. ::)

I never once thought that I would be re-introduced to the "joys" of integral calculus on here.
My nightmares has started again: I must go and lie down in a darkened room for a few weeks.....


Where you taught electronics for a Nightmare on Elm Street evening recall some of the maths when designing complex control systems. ;D ;D ;D

I'd a bloody good job I barely ever dropped a mark on the computing and general electronics papers at university because they compensated for the fact that I just CBA to wade through all the maths. ::)

I love the place, although I don't think I would want to live there permanently. Much prefer it to Europe though, apart from Italy.
Main problem with Americans is they don't know how to take the piss.  ;D
Strong language warning.

I'm guessing this can't go down the drain, so how do I get rid?

Use it to flush your plumbing. :y

Oh, yes. Mine has had some decent 105 deg. C rated capacitors in the ECU too. ;D

Yes, I've never been to Haiti or El Salvador, but I've spent a lot of time on the African continent, where there are a lot of lovely places, but an awful lot of shitholes as well.  ::) 

Also very true of the country of which Trump is president, of course. :y

I think yours is a Potterton profile like mine?

Mine used to kettle like mad when I moved in here. Fixed a couple of leaks, fliushed and filled it up with a cleaning agent and ran it for a couple of weeks, then drained and flushed. What came out was a horrible black mess. I chuck a bottle of inhibitor in each year and it's still silent. Now 20 years old. The longer I can put off replacing it with a godawful condensing boiler the better. :y

Get rid of the competition was the likely business model.
Big Peugeot boss told VX this week that they need much higher productivity to have a rosy future. Quite possibly starting to prepare people for planned decline.

From what the General Manager was saying, that seemed more than possible.  They have started cutting at HQ and he is awaiting big changes (cuts) to come out for his business, which will "effect the great team [he has] at the dealership". :'( :'( :'(

Yep, it's not as if PSA are in need of yet another brand that specialises in shitboxes. ::)
Either that or they'll just merge the ranges together and use the Vauxhall brand for badge engineering.

What kind of pauper buys a house without off street parking, anyway?  :P
I suspect I'd be far less of a pauper if I had no space for "projects". ::)

And never, repeat NEVER, join a checkout queue where there is a female member of staff 

Number 1 factor in my decision making around which checkout to use, is how attractive the lady on the till is  ;D

Yep.....always choose an attractive young woman rather than a toothless old crone.

Some of the 'girls on the till' are older than time itself. Way past 65.

They are so slow I can hear myself whispering  under my breath " OFFS hurry up gormless old hag"

Why are they there? :-\

The chiller aisles are where the real action is. :-*
