Re: Your own photos - new thread.

Hope you can see this - it's a facebook video so if you're not on facebook... https://www.facebook.com/mark.perrett.77/videos/10156536258718959/ I probably saw it being painted - it was done during 'upfest' - the graffiti festival in Southville and Bedminster in Bristol. Literally hundreds of artist...

Re: Overrated Tourist Traps to Avoid at All Costs.

I've only done a couple of those. I'm not very good with tourist destinations. Although we lived within a couple of hours drive of both for 14 years, we never visited Sevilla nor Cordoba - both of which are tourist hotspots (well we went to Sevilla twice but only to go to Ikea :roll: ). I prefer to ...

Re: FB Meme

Some time ago I corrected an obvious 'inacurracy' in one of her posts and she accused me of stalking her. :con

I now leave her alone with her delusions.

Just checked - we are not mutual 'friends' - although we could be. ;)

Re: FB Meme

Quite.

For context our 'friend' is a right-wing British Christian.

The meme is confusing though. It's as if the writer is barely literate and the facts are dodgy in the extreme.

In fact it's so absurd, I can't believe it's real. Satire maybe?

Re: Driving psychology

Scenario 1: it would depend on the circumstances: how big the slow vehicle was, how slowly it was going, how far ahead could I see clearly, whether there were any other roads joining mine from which another vehicle might suddenly emerge.... I would have to be VERY sure that it was safe. Scenario 2:...

Re: Driving psychology

I don't drive but my understanding of the solid central white line is that it's deployed when visibility is reduced e.g. due to bendy roads. I suppose i takes less time to overtake a slow moving vehicle so perhaps you don't need to see as far ahead... As for the bike question. It's been a while but...

Driving psychology

As a cyclist/motorist/walker I'm quite interested in the battle that goes on out there - particularly between cyclists and everyone else. Here is a specific question. I've tried asking it in real life with mixed results. Scenario 1. You are driving on a quiet 'A' road and come across a slow moving v...

Coconut oil

This has been THE food fad for the last couple of years. I never bothered to find out much about - just assumed that it was another useless and unnecessary supplement. Turns out I was wrong - it's worse than that... https://news.sky.com/story/coconut-oil-pure-poison-says-harvard-professor-11478886?d...

Re: Boris Johnson on the Burka

That more-or-less matches my thoughts. The issue of employers specifying what employees must and must not wear is very thorny particularly where women are concerned - but perhaps off topic. WRT the balaclava/burka/helmet thing, it's all about context and situation. They are all valid sometimes and n...

Re: Boris Johnson on the Burka

If at work I were to disrespect women because of what they were wearing I would expect to be in trouble. Not a very likely situation considering that an insignificant percentage of people actually wear face coverings in the UK, and I suspect that most of those don't have a job. However, if I had to...
