Re: Things that make you disproportionately happy.

First time of the year you feel heat in the sun.

Watching snow fall.

The sound of a woodpecker.

Hi, So a big thanks to the volunteer, unpaid moderators for keeping the thread going and a plea to everyone to keep it civilised. :) Absolutely. And a suggestion that if there are to be suspensions or bans, they would be better aimed at individuals than threads . Pot and kettle :mrgreen: If the mod...

Easy - follow the money.

Johnson is bankrolled by the Daily Telegraph, owned by the Barclay Brothers.

They are billionaire tax avoiders, domiciled on Sark.

It's all about fighting against political elites, dontcha know.

This is where we're at. The chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum has compared Boris Johnson to Adolf Hitler and said he would quit the party if the former foreign secretary is elected as leader https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2019/jun/14/rory-stewart-says-he-could-serve-in-a-boris-joh...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

The question I asked was "I wonder how you think women reading this will feel." Not how you feel about it. I don't know. I can't answer for women everywhere. That's up to them, not you. I do know that women are very happy to be admired. I'm not making lewd comments or anything sexist. She...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

That's a shame, she looks so nice too. In fact, quite a looker. Not enough to make me want to buy a telly though. :wink: I wonder how you think women reading this will feel. I'm a red-blooded male. Her looks appeal to me. Not being sexist or disparaging to women. Just making light of a turgid borin...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

Hi, So with Labour forgotten and Tories defeated who will the the remainers place their hope in next? I am happy with boris in charge though Javid looks a good second. Remainers think it's all over but it will be when we leave. No need for long drawn out posts and get slated by the soposid intellig...

Re: Tandem crank offset front/rear: eccentric bb

Conventional wisdom is that cranks in line is best, which we've always used on ours. I've been told that some people run 90 degrees out, which would best spread maximum load I guess. I think arrangements with "freewheel" style bottom brackets are also possible eg when one rider is disabled...

Chain splitter tool 9/10/11 speed compatibility

Re: Homeopathy, does it work?

What would be interesting would be if a trial were done with, say, patients with rheumatoid arthritis, in which they were told to carry on with whatever conventional treatment they were taking, but also take a tiny dose of clear liquid once a day. In reality the liquid would just be water. The &quo...
