Re: ...who buys this stuff?

Well at those prices, plenty might not be that many and you haven't enlightened us to who they are. Why do I need to enlighten you ? Who said you needed to? You're replying to a thread that poses a question, you've guessed an answer that wasn't enlightening. Can you enlighten us? No, I have no idea...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

My Hive App keeps telling me my hous...

It’s easier to guess the latter.

I would guess plenty of people otherwise the company would go under :wink:

Re: ...who buys this stuff?

I'd wager that we've all bought an item where a cheaper alternative would do. All those living in a detached or semi house could easily live in a terreaced property. Could be a bit cramped, but it'd be a dammed sight better that what my parents had to endure during the 1950s. I’d wager there’s plen...

Re: ...who buys this stuff?

I don't get why it bothers people so much how others spend their money.I personally wouldn't pay those prices but if someone else wants to then that's their choice. I have a friend who has 10 bikes.Yes TEN.He only wears Rapha clothing.He rides maybe three or four times a year.It's his money!Despite...

Re: ...who buys this stuff?

Mrs Dopestrong wasn't keen on me buying a Rolex when I retired. Being the considerate husband that I am I took her views on board, and bought an almost identical Tudor Pellagos instead and just mumbled vaguely when asked about the cost :lol: My wife hasn't noticed despite my Festina TDF100 having a...

Re: Does Wales have the steepest street?

22degs is 40%.
How do they decide one 40% is steeper than another?
Are there different categories for residential streets/rural streets etc?
