  1. This was always going to happen because the health fascists have done for smoking so they need something else to focus on. The reality is the EU have said a minimum price per unit of alcohol will be illegal so it's a non starter in this guise. What will really happen is the tax or duty on alcohol will be rapidly increased instead so the effect will be the same, we all pay more. After that watch out for all the "nice" food, anything with a fat/sugar/salt content that the so called experts decide is too much. It is all supposed to be for our own good, as the title says-B******S!!!! Whatever happened to personal choice? Big brother has well and truly taken over.
  2. Not a good way to impress the new german bosses. http://www.autoblog.com/2012/08/24/ducati-issues-five-recalls-for-1199-panigale/
  3. This was the mountain road this morning. Practising for the MGP starts tomorrow. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.408963649159790.91397.175266482529509&type=3&l=169e505116
  4. Is this the Carl "the older I get the faster I was" Fogarty who was often left behind by Steve Hislop etc?
  5. Here's the latest, It's my own stupid fault as the coat itself is NOT waterproof it needs the waterproof lining fitted to stop me getting wet. The coat on its own does have a lining that is not waterproof in its own right. How I had it is purely for summer(this is Britain) and is not designed to be waterproof. Had I known that it is unlikely that I would have bought it. Ah well we live and learn.
  6. I can honestly say it is rubbish. I wore last Friday(very wet I know) for the first time and within 10 minutes it was leaking!!! By the time I arrived at my destination(130 miles) I had changed my t-shirt twice and was still absolutely dripping wet to the point that I was wringing out my shirts to remove the excess water. I'm off to see about it now and will post the results of my friendly chat at the shop. http://www.frank-thomas.co.uk/index.php/ftw348-xti-2-aquatec-jacket-black.html

  17. Apologies if this has been done before. Apparently, after every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet', which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight. Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humour. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by Qantas' Pilots and the solutions recorded by maintenance engineers. Pilots: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement. Engineers: Almost replaced left inside main tire. Pilots: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough. Engineers: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft. Pilots: Something loose in cockpit. Engineers: Something tightened in cockpit. Pilots: Dead bugs on windshield. Engineers: Live bugs on back-order. Pilots: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent. Engineers: Cannot reproduce problem on ground. Pilots: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear. Engineers: Evidence removed. Pilots: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick. Engineers: That's what they're for. Pilots: Suspected crack in windshield. Engineers: Suspect you're right. Pilots: Number 3 engine missing. Engineers: Engine found on right wing after brief search. Pilots: Aircraft handles funny. Engineers: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious. Pilots: Target radar hums Engineers: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics. Pilots: Mouse in cockpit. Engineers: Cat installed. And perhaps, the best Qantas joke... Qantas Pilot: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer. Engineers: Took hammer away from midget
  18. Quality. A bit like the fella who tasered himself!
  19. My thoughts are they spent 6 months digging the hole for £6000!!! if there are even only 2 of them then say they spend only 6 hours a day digging, removing the rubble and disposing of it then it still says to me that a job paying the minimum wage is still more than twice as profitable. Dumb or what?
  20. After continually reading about the dangers of smoking and drinking I've decided to give it up...... Reading that is! I'm sorry I'll get my coat.
