Re: Coronavirus

Also don't forget that the Mail for a new editor a few months back who isn't such a twat as before so the coverage changed a little.

Hahahaha! This has been planned very well by the press.
Yup, they've played a blinder. Get the first story out, allow time for the bullshit excuses and closing of rank, then hit them with the second story less than 24h later to pull the rug out from under the whole lot.

Re: The pointless push for 8K

Oh sweet delicious irony. We've won a TV. Only it's in Brazil. A friend of ours out there rescues, nurses and then tries to re-home stray cats and dogs. We occasionally help her out with donations to pay for food, vets, etc. As she's quite well known in the local community she often gets gifted thin...

Re: Talented Audi Drivers

Simon, would 100mph have been ok? What about 200mph where legal in Germany? There’s nothing innately dangerous about speed alone. Yes, there's nothing innately dangerous about speed alone, totally agree, but there's very few roads where you can do 200mph in this country without any danger, even wit...

Re: Talented Audi Drivers

So it's ok if he takes himself out then? Sorry, at 200mph you've no idea if there's going to be someone either on your side of the road in a mile or two, or if you crash badly and leap the central reservation you could hit someone coming the other way. Short of closing the motorway for 10 miles in e...

Re: Coronavirus

Yes, it's BS. I read the same article. It _can_ be spread via packaging, so you need to wash your hands any everything after touching it and before eating.

Re: Coronavirus

'Murica generally has weaker employee protections than Europe, but even over here they can unilaterally change a contract and if you don't accept it they can push you out it seems, so I have no trust in it being 'better' over there. Besides, you don't pay high because it's an expensive area, it's ac...

Part of me is thinking they are now recouping revenue - thoughts?
The fines go to central government, not the forces though.

Re: Talented Audi Drivers

This starts near me on the M23. The local police are on the case apparently. People talk about 'competent driver in a good car can be safe' etc, but at the end of the day motorways are not engineered for cars to do this sort of speed. At 200mph some of those corners become 'blind corners'. The bump...

Re: Coronavirus

The value you bring to your job doesn't change depending where you do it. 'Nickel and Diming' your staff because they move to a cheaper area but do exactly the same job is the work of a terrible leader. I hope it backfires spectacularly.

Why is it less dangerous in Germany than here on an empty motorway? It's the fact he filmed it which is the main issue.
See my post above about engineering the road for high speeds in the first place.

Interesting reading. Do you not take out the extended warranty on the older cars? It's not mentioned in your cost breakdown...
