...., there's a hell of a lot of cars at night these days with no rear lights on, why don't they make DRL light up the back as well? Seems an odd way to do it.

Why not do away with DRLs and save a bit of power and resources? What was wrong with not having lights on in broad daylight? 🤷‍♂️

Perfectly adequate in the UK and the majority of other countries butt in Scandinavia where the days are dark in winter, the roads long, straight and almost deserted and lined with trees, a point of light is easily spotted and can be a life saver - especially where the traffic from the right has the right of way.

Which is why VolvoSaab  invented it.  At least they did it with sensible levels of brightness and remembered that the rear lights can be useful too.

 

Further to which,  I have just returned from a trip to Chester-le-Street for replacement specs.  It was full of people!  People everywhere.  Very disconcerting.  I liked the world without all those people much better.

I believe that is permitted under the current rules though, driving to a town in Durham for purposes related to one's eyesight.

first dead Stuart Little

I got my first mouse of this house yesterday morning (in the pantry FFS), and my first mole ever last night.

Ma has just smashed an elderly bottle of redex and redecorated the porch a fetching shade of pink. Of course it's my fault for it being there, not hers for being a blind bat trying to force yet another charity begging bag into a space that doesn't exist for no purpose whatsoever.

Craig Charles should stick to playing Dave Lister. We saw him playing records at a festival & the fucker never shut up, singing along & so on.

Haha.

I did a gig with him back in 2019. A lovely bloke, one of the nicest and humblest I’ve had the pleasure of. He never goes on stage alone though - the best never do - so that was probably his rider talking. Two litres of Grey Goose from memory. FDFC622A-629A-4CD2-8C3A-AA56DFA22646.thumb.jpeg.c570ef1652d5781237748e7b255d257c.jpeg

Our boiler is due it's annual service - we have a plan with Domestic & General (taken out last year as cheaper than getting BAXI to sort it as a one-off - my usual guy was stumped) which includes cost of said service. Went to book online, have to create an account. Account created, full details given, click 'book appointment'...and get taken to page with 'phone number to call them! Grrrrrr why not say that in the first fecking place?

He didn’t answer the door when I went round, so I looked through the kitchen window and saw him lying face down on the floor asleep, to be fair he has been laying bricks all afternoon so probably just  nodded off and forgot about the mixer.

European Super League can absolutely get in the sea. What a way to ruin football.

Greedy arrogant fools. It would need fans worldwide to genuinely boycott all tv and stadium ESL games. (they won't though and we all know it)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56807310

I'd let these "super clubs" fuck off and do their own thing, and maybe the rest of the game can get back to some sort of normality. Yo-yo clubs bagging £100 million for being relegated etc, get it to fuck

remember, British Steel  on Teesside went on strike when the BBC put Hector's House on instead of Magic Roundabout....

and Simpsons was the one thing i did like to watch most days, so no, no not really!

Well I never knew that, perhaps it was a case of strike first, think of a reason later. 

Silly Hectors. 

The Simpsons is great but there are some really lame episodes and they seem to be the ones they show over and over again.
