    Remember Jaco Pastorius? The bass player from Weather Report. One of the best bass players ever.

    Two fat birds go into a bar and order drinks.
    Bartender: "What lovely accents, are you two girls from Scotland?"
    Girl: "It's Wales, you bloomin' idiot!"
    Bartender: ‘Sorry, are you two whales from Scotland?’

    Happy Renting reacted to Loki in Earthquakes - is the big one about to happen?   
    That's fair, it is affecting the climate though, and that's my main point.  It will be used as another "LOOK WHAT CO2 DID, GUESS WE'D BETTER TAX YOU SOME MORE" did fraud, when as you say, it has happened before. (And is nothing to do with the composition of the atmosphere)
    "Any time soon", again, we agree.

    God will send earthquales and volcanoes to mitigate this problem. I saw it in a dream.
    Failing that, the impending Magnetic Catastrophe Acceleration (whatever that is, sounds awesome) will deal with things.

    As a rule of thumb, allowing for different gallons, UK gas prices are about 2.5 times the US price.

    About $1.20 a litre right now:
    https://www.globalpetrolprices.com/Canada/Ontario/gasoline_prices/#:~:text=Ontario Gasoline prices%2C liter&text=The average value for Ontario,period is 1.65 Canadian Dollar.
    So about 70p vs about £1.15. On the other side of the balance, insurance in Toronto is expensive. I'll likely end up paying around $1500 a year for comprehensive cover - so ~ £900.

    Propaganda 50p's are a brilliant idea.

    Happy Renting reacted to Snark in Ridiculously Low Mileage Motors - Spotted on the Roads   
    Trouble is when people do low mileage they look at their cars service schedule and the bit that says "12'000 mile or every 12 months", and they assume it's some sort of ripoff. They do not realise that oil, brake fluid, etc etc have a service life regardless of usage. They also assume that because it's passing it's MOT, that everything must be fine.

    Apparently it costs a bank £25 to send a letter, and a solicitor £250, so imagine what the BBC have spent on you!

    Whilst that is the effect upon vulnerable elderly people they are cleverly written.
    The one about the court appearance saying what will happen, what you need to bring for your trial etc. starts with an "If" before taking you through all of these details.
    It is exactly the same thing that good old Auntie Beeb's programmes like Watchdog and You and Yours bravely investigate: scare tactics.

    Postal service's act 2000.
    "(3)A person commits an offence if, intending to act to a person’s detriment and without reasonable excuse, he opens a postal packet which he knows or reasonably suspects has been incorrectly delivered to him."
    Not sure if it applies to women though........

    Happy Renting got a reaction from Bedrag Justesen in Ridiculously Low Mileage Motors - Spotted on the Roads   
    If it is the original oil, then she either isn't having it serviced by a trustworthy person, or isn't having it serviced at all.
    So it could have all sorts of other problems.
    I'd worry about the brake fluid for a start.

    It should probably be taken off the road.

    What the fuck is wrong with people
    2200 miles a year would come under severe use (Short trips) which means it should be changed MORE often
