Re: the young and social distance

Quite. Unfortunately there were 3 of them. Either that was a threesome, or a camera man and pornhub, either way, not on, they got their marching orders. I'm sure if the WWF can be deemed an essential streaming service for wrestling fans, then providing fresh and engaging content for fans of other f...

Re: Covid 19 outbreak - arguing about Stats (again)

Guys. There is absolutely no point in arguing with the uc. You all know that he will never, ever, under any circumstances admit that he is wrong. It is bleedin' obvious what is happening to the world at the moment, telling him so will not matter because he cannot admit any other worldview but his o...

Re: Should the UK ( World ) seek compensation from China for the damage it's citizens have done?

slightly more on topic: In the letter, Huawei's UK chief Victor Zhang says home data use has increased by at least 50% since the virus first hit the UK, placing "significant pressure" on telecoms systems. Huawei says it has been working with partners like BT, Vodafone and EE to deal with t...

Re: Should the UK ( World ) seek compensation from China for the damage it's citizens have done?

.... as the majority of replies have used civil, reasoned argument to dismantle the OPs proposition, I'm of a mind to pretty much leave it as is. OK guys, teacher's left the room, riot time 8) The great families that benefited from slavery should have rest less nights? My family & I bet most he...

Re: Gas cartridges by the side of the road

I have a little one. So I do understand others when they say it's easier to use gas. And nowadays it does seem that connectors simply don't last before the ends come off. Or the barrel cracks. But shouldn't this be a call to manufacturers to make them more reliable. I always assumed that cartridges ...

Re: Anyone NHS volunteering?

If you have code 107 on your licence alongside the C1E category, then you are limited "Not more than 8250kg" as total weight, which 'they' interpret as one 7.5T truck plus a 750Kg trailer. The problem is that 'they' calculate on the maximum authorised mass of a vehicle, not how ever heavy ...

Re: Gas cartridges by the side of the road

Talking about gases for tyre inflation, Roger Riviere had Helium in his tubs when he broke the hour record - near the end he had a slow puncture but he broke the 47km barrier ( seems pretty tame now ). Helium? I thought that made you speak with a squeaky voice, does it also speed up your cadence to...

Re: C19 - Ending The Lockdown

So Lockdown has ended - for Boris. He and his partner have gone to the PM's second home, Chequers. I couldn't make this up. He is our leader, the nation's hero and saviour. Surely you don't begrudge him a little bit of R n R? Just because some of us are obeying the law regarding not seeing members ...

Re: Gas cartridges by the side of the road

seeing as now you mention beer Mick. This lockdown needs to be first lifted in the pubs so that environmentally friendly drinking can resume. This should be made the government's top priority for both the health of the brewery industry, and the sanity of the british man and woman, as well as for sav...

Re: Cycling as an activity during the Covid 19 outbreak

absolutely. well except I haven't looked myself, but absolutely. Could stravada be prevailed upon to initiate some variation of information lockdown I wonder. Get them to remove any searchable links that lead to these boastful wheelmen. Or is that going against their business strategy? Other than wh...

Re: Gas cartridges by the side of the road

I know you know, I was making sure the others knew what we know, so that they now know too :D I'd hate to think of some poor cyclist in the woods desperately trying to get high sniffing nitrogen for hours.

Re: Gas cartridges by the side of the road

Nitrous is known as ‘hippy crack’. In low doses it gives you the giggles, high doses can knock you out / kill you. CO2 is much easier than bike pumps, and most. of the discarded cartridges I see, are CO2 cartridges. Nitrous is not nitrogen gas. Nitrogen gas or N or as it is most commonly found in n...

Re: Anyone NHS volunteering?

Driver CPC is one possible problem, having a digital tachograph is another. For some reason, I can't think why, to renew a digital tachograph card, you have to send an application though the post, which at the moment, the DVLA isn't accepting. If you're driving a 7.5T carrying goods that aren't used...
