    I dunno wot dat word mean, but I got a arseh opinion as good as the next guys!...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    The role of government is to try and find as fair and equitable distribution of the resources available to it My impression is that in the UK there is broad consensus that the elites don't need as much support from...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    It's not actually legal to sell you a service without mentioning that there's a cost. This is much closer to calling a taxi for someone else then claiming that it's that person who's liable for the cost... when you don't...

    Good luck with holding them to account... It's not just the plod, I had a complaint upheld by the media council after the Daily Terror wrote an inflammatory article that included my name and phone number. I weeks of...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    there's no law to say you have to give the ambo your name. Is there any penalty to the Police if they pass it on? Because if any injury, no matter how minor, results from a crash names have to...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    On a completely different topic, Our Rupert's minions are pushing the "Nazis were left wing" garbage right now for some reason. I guess because "nazis are bad" and to Rupert anything less capitalist than Reagan is the devil. But it's...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Fire Departments have long billed for calls to false alarms There's a subtle difference between a charge for "wasting official time" and a charge for "telling relevant officials of an emergency". I'm sorry that's not obvious to you....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    preventative health money in the mix There's also preventive education. There's really solid studies saying that early childhood education is almost as effective as early childhood medical care at saving money. Back when I studied it the minimum earn was...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    if we changed that to the person calling in the emergency had to pay for the ambo if the patient didn't agree, then no parking inspector or passer by would ever call an ambulance I have not suggested that, because...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    You're not required to pay if an ambulance is called for you. At you have to do is refuse to go. That has not been my experience. I was chased down by the fine-collecting machine and forced to pay despite...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    (in the USA many police forces make significant money from taking valuable items, especially cash, from anyone they come in contact with. The difference between that and organised crime is technical rather than behavioural. It partially explains why some people...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    what exactly is your problem with the frightening cost of Ambulance Subscrriptions in the various states? In NSW it's $150/year for a single person. My objection is twofold: firstly, ambulances should be part of the healthcare system and paid for...

    (*not* to be killed, dammit)...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    But health care in most places isn't free, it's paid for in taxes. I shall be careful to use the US phrasing in future "free at the point of consumption". Many things considered free are actually paid for through taxes...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Another way to look at it is asking how the UK could possibly benefit from sending pure profit to the USA. Forget any payment for actual goods or services, focus on the profit element. How does that benefit the UK...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Or is this another way of saying the sick must start paying for services? Exactly. It's very hard for US corporations to compete with free, so the obvious solution is for any trade treaty to prevent "free" and there's evidence...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    FWIW, one really ugly part of the ambulance system in Australia is that anyone can *call* the ambulance but it's the person who gets treated who is liable. Which is a real incentive to GTFO if there is a problem...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Moving to Australia the whole idea of "ambulance insurance" was bizarre to me, but here that's how it works. Ambulances are apparently owned and run by the government but on a fee for service basis. Ambulance Victoria responds to over...

    getting on my bike and riding is the single best thing I've discovered. The bootstrap problem is hard to solve though. Transport. An ex discovered that once they had a bicycle and had got used to the convenience suddenly "not...

    the diagonal compression member that runs from the saddle mounting point to the rear axle mounting point on the chain side, so that it runs inside the chain line instead of outside. So when it gets close to the rear...

    Belt driven bicycles is a fad that passes through every now and then. One issue is that it's hard to design a structure that is both light and strong enough while also allowing belt replacement (without a welder or composite...

    thermal performance. Ah ha. Hahahaha. The shack I rented in Blacktown had so much dust coming up through the floorboards that I was mopping the floors at least once a day. But my brick house is alternately cooler than outside...

    I’ve been technically unemployed ... I would happily do consulting gigs for maybe 6 months of the year and have the rest as free time for my own projects I spent the best part of a decade doing that, when...

    For those looking for nasty predictions above covid, you might want to look at Ramadan. If Lakemba is anything to go by a lot of official stuff has been cancelled but there are still an awful lot of people packed...

    but they're criminal and incompetent respectively, not the expected state. You know how you don't *need* a criminal conviction to come here any more? Well, the country's attitudes were formed when most of the invaders were either criminals, guards, or...

    The other thing is that it's $10 to see if it works for you... albeit if you are using it on a bike chain you also need to remove and clean the chain. One trick, btw, is to use an...

    So that chain stuff works then? Wax lube is one of those old ideas that used to be too much hassle for the benefit to most people, most of the time. Old road racers used to use sewing machine oil...

    it's just the manufacturers cheaping out by doing only the minimum necessary to avoid people complaining that it doesn't have a cord at all At the bottom end of the market this is very true. I've received Cinese LED floodlights...
