General Discussion Area / Sensors
« on: Yesterday at 18:31:56 »
Not in your omega, in my white goods. (Yes...white goods, Tigger)
The sensor in my washing machine weighs the clothes and alters the washing time. OK.
The sensor in my tumble drier knows how damp my clothes are. Nimps.
The sensor in my dishwasher knows how dirty my dishes are and, if I put it on AUTO, it adjusts the washing time. It works too. Now how the f**k does a sensor measure how dirty your dishes are?

.....every now and again? If these men are responsible, I would gladly put them through a very unpleasant experience. One they would never forget, in fact:

Nice, young Scottish lass asked me if I'd like a shiny new smart meter in my home. When I said 'No, thank you', she tried to educate me about the benefits of having one. Instead, I educated her with my thoughts on where a smart meter should be located. Somewhere dark, damp and smelly. I doubt she'll ring again.  :)

« on: 11 July 2018, 18:23:03 » the BBC's highest paid 'star'. What? The jug-eared twot only sits talking about football, and most of what he says is bollix. Jeez.

Trump is in Europe. After saying the GB was a mess and wanting to meet 'his friend' Boris, he has now stated the Germany is controlled by Russia. Plenty of popcorn needed here.  ;D

This has nothing to do with punishment or rehabilitation, it's another way of 'managing' the overpopulated prisons. Prison really doesn't hold any fear with a lot of people these days although, I must admit, I wouldn't fancy it myself.

General Discussion Area / Tinnitus
« on: 01 July 2018, 18:47:49 »
Any sufferers? I'm not actually sure if I'm suffering from it, as the know-all in the corner tells me that it could be lots of other things. I've heard it called 'ringing' in the ears, but mine is more of a 'whistle', a bit like a 1KC tone from a scope. Been about a week now, more noticeable at night, obviously.

General Discussion Area / In ASDA today

People panic buying beer and coke. Obviously been listening to the news about running out of carbon dioxide. Firkin idiots.

I managed to get two boxes X30 cans of diet coke though  ;D

General Discussion Area / There are two ways.....
« on: 26 June 2018, 12:50:58 » move a fridge freezer across vinyl flooring, in order to paint the walls behind.
1) Carefully remove everything from within and, using your sack barrow, wheel it well out of the way, giving yourself plenty of room to work. Or...
2) Leave everything in there and manhandle the bastard out with a series of grunts and farts, tearing a great big tongue out of the vinyl flooring and sending the glass ornament which your wife thoughtlessly placed on top of it bouncing along the kitchen floor.

Guess which method I used.

General Discussion Area / Mind boggling

Just watching 'Heathrow' on ITV. The first item was about the non-stop flight from Perth to London, a 17 hour flight. One of Qantas's engineers said, 'We left Perth this morning with 98 tonnes of fuel on board............'.
What!? 98 tonnes of fuel? One metric tonne of fuel is about 1370 litres, so 98 tonnes is 134,260 litres. For one flight. If you use 50 litres of fuel in your car per week, it would take you over 50 years to use that much.......for one flight.
Don't be fickin asking me to save the planet, ask the airlines.

General Car Chat / Has anyone used these stickers
« on: 31 May 2018, 15:55:25 »

I had quite a big (1/2"x1 1/2") patch on my bumper where I left bird shit on for a week or so. When the shit came off, so did the paint. I used one of these patches on it. Of course, if you get right up close, you can see it's a patch, but from standing height you wouldn't know it was there. Perfect colour match too. I'm pleased with it, but was wondering if anyone else had used them and had any feedback on their longevity and whether they came off when washing the car.

We might run out of fresh water by about 2050, so we are about to be told how to use it properly and water companies are being told to fix leaks.
In order to alter our behaviour, even though we're talking over thirty years away (rough guess, no doubt) I have a feeling that everyone will have to pay more for it now. You know it makes sense.  ::)

General Car Chat / Astra service
« on: 22 May 2018, 10:21:54 »
Just been up to my local indie to book Mo's car in for a service. Evans Halshaw stamped the book last August but, whether they actually did anything or not, I don't know. I asked him about the warranty as it's only 18 months old and still has 18 months left. He took the reg number and told me not to worry as he rings Vauxhall, gives them the reg and mileage (10500) and they deliver the relevant parts.
I am reassured.  :)

General Car Chat / My diesel astra
« on: 19 May 2018, 12:38:26 »
I've had it eight months and put 12,000 miles on it, so I feel qualified to talk about it now. It is exactly the car I need and I am extremely happy with it. I love the diesel power coupled with economy. I like the equipment level which, while not anything to compare with top of the pile cars, is enough for me. I love the way it drives, and the auto box, now that I know all of it's little foibles. I even love the way it looks, and the colour.
As some of you know, I get bored and change my car quite often, but not this one. I'm going to keep it until it becomes uneconomical to do so.
It really does take me about six months to feel at home with a car, so  Jeremy Clarkson's job is safe.
