Re: One solution to tailgating?

Yep, a wet windscreen really, well, wets a windscreen. I've seen it said many times. Still don't get it, tbh. I make sure I have sufficient stopping room in front of me if someone is uncomfortably close.

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Latest from the Telegraph .. The family of Harry are flying out to the USA to fulfil a number of media appointments in New York.... Really ? Justice .......

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

For religious reasons protein-packed carp were eaten at monasteries They gobble up the muck from the bed of the lake, maybe that is how they got their name Once a year the water is let out of the pond (a big lake actually) and the poor stranded beasts meet their Maker People have plenty of other fo...
