    Greg Tingey @ 601: Moz @ 593I note that fascist thug Bolsanaro has ( publicly, at least ) suddenly backpedalled on burning down the Amzn Forest, because otherwise, he would lose a trade deal ...He will, of course, try to...

    Pigeon @ 592: Thank you! PDF saved... Agree too about the shocking prices of Moggies these days... a few grand just to have confidence that the pile of bits you get for the money isn't missing anything, never mind an...

    Heteromeles @ 586: Yeah, Charles Koch is definitely in my thoughts and prayers at the moment. So are Trump, Putin, and Bolsonaro. Heck, I'm even praying about the NRA... Well, if hiring a Houngan to put a hex on them...

    JamesPadraicR @ 583: Yeah, just came by to say (because of Charlie’s tweet about it): So the guy who blackmailed his older, gay brother out of his share of the family fortune, and bankrolled the Tea Party, etc. is dead....

    paws4thot @ 565: Well, thank you for summarising several posts I already made. ;-) And indeed, for re-writing the one you quoted to prove that someone else understood it. Whatever. You're welcome....

    _Moz_ @ 552: If I was to do grossly illegal things, or at least things that might land me in prison, I would be very, very careful about who I told and who I accepted help from. Insofar as it's...

    paws4thot @ 550: Cheers; I've just plain never seen any full statement of the law linking axle weight to road damage. I have seen various explanations of lifting undriven axles, but they all boil down to reducing tyre, brake and...

    Greg Tingey @ 543: whitroth @ 540In which case is getting DT declared mentally unfit & incompetent ( In the technical sense - we KNOW he's incompetent ) & replacing him, automatically with Pence a winning move for the D's...

    whitroth @ 539: Yes. The doc who first suggested, in the press, that he might be breaking down is now saying that events have proved him right. And he can't just do it - trying to change the Constitution is...

    Ada @ 527: To pick just one piece of the article Greg linked to in 523, Trump has threatened to end birthright citizenship before. However, it is granted in the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution so using an executive...
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Greg Tingey @ 523: I'm getting a very, very nasty feeling about this ... Is it deliberate, so that DT is removed for insanity, early in 2020 & Pence gets elected?Pence is actually madder & considerably more dangerous than DT,...

    Robert Prior @ 492: What I've noticed in the past couple of years is that Toronto traffic is now using merge lanes and paved shoulders as overtaking lanes — which was rare a decade ago. Whenever I'm on the 401...

    paws4thot @ 481: #467 - That just makes me think you're a poor driver. I've never had a speeding ticket and am only rarely pinged by "you are speeding, slow down" sensors. The only "cruise control" I've ever had is...

    Pigeon @ 472: Basically, it is a behaviour pattern of negative value, since the best it ever achieves is to piss a lot of people off. Basically, based on my prior experience, it has the positive value of keeping me...

    ondaiwai @ 1268: No, there is no desire to have the Brits back in charge. The desire is to get the PRC side to actually honour the terms of the handover agreement and grant us a "high degree of autonomy"...

    Pigeon @ 434: Have I got my American road markings right - "double yellow line" is down the centre of the road, and "white line on the right" is right on the edge? If so, I thoroughly agree - riding...
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    whitroth @ 419: Cruise control, ABSOLUTELY. When I was younger, before I discovered "Cruise control", I averaged a speeding ticket every two years. I got my first vehicle with cruise control in 1982. I have not had a speeding ticket...

    _Moz_ @ 390: Tools are trickier, but it's worth noting that the great majority of people don't have to commute with their tools and of the ones who currently seem to, many could find alternatives if the other option was...

    _Moz_ @ 385: "On such big vehicles engine breaking would be too noisy, so it is forbidden." Oh, the joy of living in a small, densely populated country. Outside of minor roads in major cities engine braking is how...

    John Hughes @ 366: Aside: damn but aren't you people are a bunch of car addicts. Yeah, the same way some people are addicted to food, water & air. It's often a function of where you live or where you...

    paws4thot @ 365: Also JBS - In the UK, cops patrol dual carriageway (out motorway is a sub-set of dual carriageway physically) under the speed limit because they want us to overtake them rather than form a block behind them....
  • Commented on Upcoming events
    Damian @ 363: Same here, though it’ll be around 10km/h under the limit. There may well form a line of cars behind and even tailgating the cops, making it all the more imperative to pass them safely. I've never seen...

    _Moz_ @ 336: "italics"_Moz_ @ 336: https://www.google.com.au/maps/@-33.7238053,150.8453134,3a,60y,72.79h,79.67t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1syYdlex7qLa8B_Yv8MlM0Eg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 That is a pretty EFFED-up roundabout. If you follow what the signs tell you to do, you're going to end going around it backwards....

    paws4thot @ 332: "heel and toe" (UK speak) is a race track technique. The defensive** driving instructor told me "Brake pads cost less than transmissions. Control your speed with the throttle & use the brakes when you must. Change gears...

    paws4thot @ 325: Meanwhile, in the UK you're most unlikely to be stopped and/or ticketed for less than 5mph/10% (whichever is greater) over the ruling speed limit. I still recall one trip about 24 years ago from Kent to Cosford...

    Pigeon @ 317: Must admit I've never really got on with three on the tree. But then practically nothing uses it over here; four on the floor (or more, these days) is pretty much universal apart from oddities like old...

    I just found out there is a petition being circulated in New York City, New York, USA to to rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets as "President Barack H. Obama Avenue". Where do I have...

    paws4thot @ 1251: Re #1247 - More so (particular note for non-Europeans) since French law requires you to have a spare bulb kit in the car! You would therefore expect that a car which requires active dismantling to change a...

    Bill Arnold @ 283: Thanks, found some articles (e.g. here) with that text, and google translate to English is, well, interesting. Better than it used to be though.There is another confirming argument being made, by this quy,Mystery explosion at Nenoksa...
