Re: Very small things that piss you off but shouldn't really...

Woooah, wait one minute. If you read my grammar 'piss off' post properly you will see that I don't get pissed off about the fact that loads of people don't spell well. I get pissed off when those who have made the effort to use good grammar are accused of pedantry by those who haven't. You can look...

Re: Very small things that piss you off but shouldn't really...

Reading back through some of the posts in this thread we seem to have gone way beyond ‘very small’ or ‘small’ or even ‘quite big’ things that annoy us :mrgreen: Some of the issues seem to be having a serious impact on the posters ‘mental health’ and I’m quite worried about carrying on in case Mr. Up...

Comedians that aren’t funny - the list is long so don’t get me started but, to be fair, these days, this and many other annoyances on the tele just have me clicking the ‘OFF’ button.

Re: When this is over. Where are you taking your bike?

There’s a bloke in our village, not sure who he is, who goes past our house up the hill doing at least 120kph, knee down round the bend (we’re in the 50kph zone). He’s been doing it for months, long before lockdown and still does most days now. When he comes back down the hill he’s going slowly and ...

Re: When this is over. Where are you taking your bike?

I find the media playing up the ‘who's fault is it’ discussion instead of trying to move matters forward very annoying. It seems that we don’t know a lot about the virus: Why are some people asymptomatic whereas others develop much worse symptoms? Does social distancing work? Are people immune after...

Re: When this is over. Where are you taking your bike?

I really can’t see the benefit of testing unless the result is virtually instantaneous and those who need to can take two or three a day. You have to wonder if lockdown/social distancing is working. Even with a potential incubation period of up to 14 days surely we should have seen a dramatic drop i...

Re: When this is over. Where are you taking your bike?

We were lucky to get a trip in down to Alicante just before lockdown, but doesn’t seem to make my feet any less itchy. Problem here in France is that the restaurants won’t be opening again until mid July. We’ll probably head down south destination Le Lavandou. Magnon.. Now that sounds interesting.....

Re: Air Compressor Advice please...

Mines a 100 litre, 3hp 2 cylinder machine which seems OK for most things including 1400N impact gun, bike lift, paint spraying etc. Large id tubes (and short runs) make a difference.
