    PP or HDPE?

    Like many things (especially with cars), the technology introduced to improve performance/safety/environment ends up changing behaviours which often ends up making the situation worse than it was before.
  2. There possibly is a gender bias as a guy would (IMO) be more likely to see it as a challenge to work out a route to avoid the disruption.

    PP or HDPE?

    It'll say on it (on the back). PP -- polypropylene TEO / TPO -- Thermoplastic olefins. PUR / RIM -- polyurethane. ABS - ABS [and other, like PE - polyethylene, PA66 -- nylon, PC -- polycarbonate, etc] I'd have thought that these days most bumpers will be stamped as PP, TEO or TPO. Low volume cars quite likely to be PUR though.

    Crikey. I think I prefer the sound of the way of the haribo.

    Royal Wedding or Cup Final.

    I've just watched a 'summary' of the royal wedding on BBC -- they used 'the arrival of the queen of Sheba' as the background music. I'm not sure whether I should take offence -- perhaps some SJWs could help out here...
  6. In commemoration of the honest non-deletion, I propose that all the maps on Dosbods island should have Germany marked as landlocked.

    Mental health thread

    They sell CBD oil (apparently) in Holland and Barrett. Not cheap, though. It is meant to be a slow-burn type thing (rather than the instant hit of cannabis proper); people take a little every day and after a week or two see improvements. I wanted to put a 'claim to see improvements' in there, but there is some evidence for effectiveness in aspects of mental health beyond a simple placebo.

    Jordan Peterson

    I quite like this interview. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/18/style/jordan-peterson-12-rules-for-life.html Not because it is positive or anything, but because the logical argument presented against Peterson's approach is practically non-existent. Eg, Is it absurd? It is certainly a point for thought, that's for sure.

    This was the best bit of the last one:

    That's really unfair, although understandable given that previous weddings have been like that. But this one's had some entertainment value.

    Nah. It would have been more like 'we've got to invite some popular proles. Go and get a copy of Hello and invite the first 100 names'

    See the appliqué armour on the carriage? Nicely done.

    They're outside the fence... Risky...

    Don't care about that. He was clearly talented enough for the job. And from Nottingham, as well -- I'm surprised he's still alive.

    Couldn't they get the police marksmen to quieten down the warblers in the crowd?
