Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Nothing beats a nice bit of stereotyping on a Wed morning. My own experience is totally different, completely the opposite end of the spectrum. Ian Your stereotype, my stereotype...but in my experience mine is nearer the norm, reinforced by various TV documentries and comedys which parody the many ...

Re: Summer traffic by Loch Ness

I personally wouldn't use the A82 in Summer,even that early,if in a group.It's the main road from Glasgow to Inverness and can be horrendous.It's a well know accident black spot and having driven on it in August after a 15 year gap I can see why :|
I would avoid it solo let alone in a group.

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Afternoon all, Always makes me laugh out loud when I see one of them new fangled "Mini Countryman" things, emblazoned with Union Flags. Many things wrong with them but I'll stick to two for now - (1) "Mini" should read "Maxi" is in the long lamented BL job, great conce...

Re: Dropped seat stays - good bad or ugly?!

Aesthetically I don't mind the look of them.I'm not convinced they're any better or worse than traditional stays.I personally don't like the skinny look of the old 60s/70s frames with curved forks but many love them.Fashion and trends come and go.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say :)

Re: Extinction Rebellion

I do not want to drive at more than 70 mph You only need to go on any motorway,or road for that matter,to see you are in the minority there :lol: I've tried to hit 70mph on my bike but not come close yet.55mph on a bike feels a lot faster than 100mph does in a car.It's sort of a scary but good buzz...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Your choice of cars betrays you. Who else - even if they had the money - would want a "Lambo/Aston Martin/McClaren/Range Rover,Bentley (don't know what a VW T6 is)..." other than a car fanatic - ergo, "petrolhead"? Sorry, but the cap fits. I have one - repeat one - car for those...

Re: Booze - minimum price?

In Scotland, there is a 50p per unit minimum price for alcoholic drinks. Here in Bonny England, we have no such law. Been buying Old Speckled Hen in cans from Tesco at £20 for two boxes of ten ie one 500ml can for a quid. 2.5UK units per can at 5% abv ......... it says on the cans ........ just loo...

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

I wouldn't be offered 170M. I don't do the lotteries. A couple of hundred grand would sort us out nicely, but as I'm not - and never have been - a gambler, I could never win it. I'm not and have never been a gambler.Never bet on horses/dogs/football...anything.I've never put money in a fruit-machin...

Obscene.

I take it then if you were offered £170m you'd turn it down?
What would you see as an "unearned amount" to be less obscene?
It's a LOTTERY.Anything won is "unearned" :roll:

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

I don't know why there is so much of a prize money winnings. Instead of one person getting 170M, why not have 170 people get a million each? ........... or 1,700 people getting 100grand each? Not looked at a Lottery ticket for years, but if my memory serves me correctly, if you matched three number...
