Re: I've lost my wedding ring.

My wedding ring is quite heavy, is sometimes a bit tight, but will fall off easily if my hands are cold and once when I was swimming in a coldish pool, usually I remember to take it off. Luckily I noticed and picked it up.

Re: Reduce wind noise when wearing headphones?

I often ride with ear buds in, usually just one, but I find I can't really hear any traffic noise due to wind noise, maybe my large ears cause a lot of wind noise, or maybe my helmet causes a lot of wind noise. I went out one day without my helmet on and it was amazing how much quieter it was. Perha...

Re: Legality of using phone while cycling

Maybe the argument is along the lines of if they trust you enough to allow you to drive a car on the roads, you have to continually demonstrate that you deserve that trust, by not doing dangerous/reckless things. Whenever/however you display tendencies to take risks, be dangerous etc, you deserve pu...

Re: Lorry pushes car on A40

Why would he know? Why would he be checking his mirror to see if there's anything right in front of him when he's going along a straight road, into the road he can see is clear?

Re: Crazy incident on the road , be careful !!!

You would think the car driver would be beep beep beep beeping the whole time, and everyone else around him, but we don't really know how far he went like that. Perhaps following drivers were nervous about overtaking in case the car moved out, to get in front.

Is anyone moving?

Given recent referendum and general election results in the UK and possible future ones, is anyone considering moving? Maybe to Scotland to be just ahead of the rush, or further afield?

Re: Goodbye Old England - It's Time We Were Gone

Perhaps a lot of leavers were happy to vote for the conservative party, but not enough remainers were happy to ditch the conservative party for the remain parties. Personally I'm getting fed up of voting now, I'm 39, voted in 6 general elections and my vote has never counted for anything as it hasn'...

Re: BBC have stopped iplayer

Isn't this a Samsung problem, not a BBC one? There are other ways of getting iplayer to display on a TV. It's part of the problem of Smart TVs, they become obsolete. I'm more annoyed with the BBC for replacing the Iplayer Radio App with the terrible BBC Sounds which is horrible to use.

Re: New user + Advise on accident

Hi, welcome to the forum. I don't think apologising is an admission of guilt, not legally anyway. It was in the heat of the moment, if it was 50-50 and you were both equally to blame and both had done something wrong, wouldn't apologising be the right thing to do? He then goes home and has time to t...

Re: Black Friday

Didn't go round any shops, but did yesterday, today I shopped online. Do we still get pushing and shoving over here? I thought it only happened for a year or two then Black Friday became a week long, also it seems shops aren't offering the same massive discounts on limited stock like they did, proba...

How do you know it hasn't been edited to make him fade away so it looks like a CGI mistake?

Why wouldn't they check the videos better before releasing them if they were fake?

Re: Friendly Cambridge bike path turns into pole-wielding monster

I've seen it said on here before that people should be able to make little mistakes that don't result in serious injury or death, putting something like a dull grey post against a dull grey background just seems to be inviting problems. The post shouldn't be in the way, if there really is no other p...
