Re: The difference a little bit of foam makes.

I personally cant stand anything in my ears, hence I dont/cant wear earplugs. There's more than one type of disposable earplug. The ones with rounded ends really irritate my ears because they seem to have to go in further to work. The blunt end barrel shaped ones suit me better because they seem to...

Re: France bans the use of headsets.

What difference talking to a passenger in a car sitting next to you (visual distraction too) and one sat on a bike behind you through an intercomm? Listening to something through head/ear phones is very immediate and personal. Firstly it blocks out other sounds to a large extent so your attention i...

For me, most inspirational was that he got as far as Dakar, had to come back, and is setting off again :ohmy: Many would have given up.

Re: Election

Ha! Whimps. If I quit every time I under-achieved I'd have a new job every week :dry: I guess the overall signal from the party leaders is: if I can't beat Cameron and this Tory party then I must be no good. I hope Cameron doesn't run away with the idea it's a vote of confidance to him or we could e...

Re: wrong fuel

I only realised when I put the nozzle back and saw the black hose :pinch: The petrol station attendants were no help at all. I had to drain the fuel into a bucket (it was all they had) an...
