Simple: I found out that ALL those that stand up for or keep engaging in
"discussions" with the very trolls they despise are without any exception
senile bored old fools (yes, they confirmed their age which is, it seems, is
always 70+ and WAY beyond that).

Wrong. Plenty of dogs do fine without any walks.

No cat has ever torn my skin off, or tried to run up my leg either..

I used to get bitten a bit when I tormented
a cat as a kid but don't do that anymore.

I was scratched severely by one of my cats when I was trying to comb it.

I've never actually been stupid enough to comb a cat, or bath one either.

You would if one had fleas.

Nope, never did, used a flea collar instead.


The only two things I've found to ever work are:
1) A comb.
2) A dish of soapy water with a 7W bulb above it.

Looks like you are not the first to have this problem:

https://www.overclock.net/forum/44-monitors-displays/1592651-cat-peed-my-tv-monitor-problem.html

Others mention similar cat problems.

I like the advice "upgrade from a cat to a dog". Trouble is you
have
to
walk them.

Nope, plenty of them are happy to walk themselves. When I was
building
the
house, one of the neighbours dogs used to have a regular circuit
every
single
day, regular as clockwork, around the same route, sniffing and
pissing
in
the
same places every day. Hilarious to watch.

Let them do that in the UK and the moronic authorities will snatch
them
up.

When I walked back to the place to pick up my car after getting a
wheel
alignment done,

Isn't that something garages do to rip you off? I've never found
it
necessary.

I did, the tire

You spell it the yank way?!

I actually spell it my way, like I do with most ys instead of ies
too.

The trouble with putting a tire on your car is it's not
distinguishable
from running out of energy.

Of course its distinguishable from the context.

It still makes you look like an American dumbass.

Only to fools like you.

I use proper English.

I couldn't care less what stupid poms claim is proper english.

Do you also say aloominum, erb, stoopid, stoodent?

Nope, and I say tire the same way you do too.

But I know how to spell it properly.

I know how you poms spell it and arent silly enough to spell it that
way.

We invented the language.

Nope, you stole it from everyone else.

It's called English, because it's from England.

Wrong again, and it isnt from that soggy little
frigid island anyway, its stolen from all sorts
of places all over the world, even from the pakis.


We combined several languages and made the universal language that most of the world uses.

Quote:
Why copy a yank instead of a Brit?

I don't copy anyone. I do what makes sense.

That's why I don't fart around with ies and use ys instead.

I am logical with some words. I say and write pronounciation, because it
comes from pronounce, not pronunce.

I couldn't care less where it comes from.

What matters is whether the individual reading it knows what I
am referring to, and they do when I spell it tire, from the context.


They also think you're a fucking idiot. Did you run out of energy when changing the wheel?

Quote:
was wearing on one side and so needed to
be replaced sooner than it would otherwise need to be.

The alignment was well out and I don't get that effect
anymore now that the alignment has been fixed.

Ah, fair enough, I did that once too. What annoys me is garages who
seem
to think it should be done every time you replace a tyre.

I've never had one do that but I mostly use the cheapest tire
specialist
when I need a new tire.

The one that wanted to align it was Kwik Fit. They also sold me a
brand
new battery which registered 4 volts, and didn't know how to change a
brake calliper (we only do the pads mate).

Clearly an operation best avoided.

Most garages are best avoided.

I havent found that with any of them, but then I do almost
all of the work myself and only get stuff like the tires done
for free because I don't have the equipment to do a proper
dynamic balance or wheel alignment myself and can't
justify the cost of that equipment when I need stuff like a
wheel alignment so rarely. Just the once in 60 years in fact.
And it costs peanuts to get it done by a pro who knows
what he is doing and did a brilliant job. Cost just $66 and
he identified why I was getting a significant wheel tramp
at a particular speed which neither me or my mate who is
also an excellent mechanic didn't realise what the cause was.

I often went to SMS for tyres, since they have every size in stock and
fit
it while you wait without booking, just turn up, and they're cheap.

Same with the operation I use except I did notice that one customer
had to have their tires ordered. Dunno how common that is with
them. Cant even remember what those tires were for.

That can happen with sporty BMWs with unusual tyres.

I don't recall it was one of those, one of the smaller
asian things that someone had got for his daughter
and she turned her nose up at and signed up for a new
car just after starting her first job with a bank loan.


The point is, is it a rare car for that area?

Quote:
But if you have a car many others have, hey should be in stock.

Mine have always been and most of the time others have
showed up while I was there, theirs has been in stock too.
Not always tho. I don't care if they don't have some in stock
and so can charge lower prices for the common tires like mine.


How do those things link together?

Quote:
One day I got them to fix my brakes - they charged me £93
(before labour) for a calliper I could have got for £30 on Ebay.

So you should have checked that before you got them to do that.

At that time the car was almost undriveable, I couldn't be bothered taking
it back home and in again.

And you know so little about cars that you didn't know what needed doing.


Not everyone knows everything.

Quote:
Another garage, Farmer's Autocare, I took the car for an MOT, and they
gave me a list of what needed doing. I bought all the parts, handed
them to the guy, and he refused to fit them, he wanted markup on his own
parts. I called them cowboys, reported them to a few trading bodies, and
went to Foz Sports, who did the work without question.

We fit them ourselves.

I'm a shit mechanic. I've never even replaced a brake.

I've done a lot more than that, including wheel bearings.


Lucky you.

Quote:
That mate of mine has just bought a Merc C180 for
just $1500 which had a bit of miss in the engine and
got the non genuine part needed to fix it for peanuts.

But after what Clare and 'Arlen' have said about high end kraut cars, it
will be interesting to see what else ends up needing fixing over time.

Him and his son had previously had 3 Hyundai Grandeurs
that also cost them peanuts and ended up with 2 good ones
and have cost them nothing because they have sold what
parts they didn't need themselves of the third on ebay etc.


Only German car I've had was VW, that was reliable and cheap parts.

Quote:
I go to Foz all the time now, the last visit, he replaced an exhaust
bracket (£3.50) and topped up the gearbox oil (a litre for £2), then
only charged me half an hour labour on top of that for both things.

came across a big alsatian out on its own doing something very
similarly with most of the trees and gates on the street verge,
and going right down the driveway of some houses and bailing up
the dog behind the gate at the end of the drive. Hilarious.

What annoys me is when people allow their dogs (while still on the
lead!)
to piss on people's property.

You've clearly never walked a dog on a lead.
There is no way to stop that dog behaviour.

You pull the dog away from where it's pissing.

Doesn't stop it pissing on the next one.

Pull it again, if it continues, kick it.

Doesn't stop it, psychopath.

They prefer not to get beaten.

Thanks for that completely superfluous
proof that you have never had a dog.

Any animal or human will avoid what makes it be punished.

I'm not actually stupid enough to have a
dog on a lead when out walking with a dog.


Then I guess you have a well behaved dog. Some dogs are so fucking stupid that if you take them out without a lead, they attack, maim, injure, or kill other dogs.

Quote:
Why do you think people smack their kids?

Dogs work differently to kids.

No, they learn just like us.

Thanks for that completely superfluous
proof that you have never had one.


I know many people with dogs and have seen them train out bad behaviour.

Quote:
Why do you think you can make them sit, fetch, etc?

Because they like doing it with fetching.


And they like sitting? And shitting in the correct place? I doubt it. They do it because it pleases the leader of the pack (you).

> And can't teach a cat to fetch, for a reason.

Lack of dexterity.

Quote:
I find most cats are trainable. If you get angry enough, they
eventually stop doing things.

It's in a bag on a tree, why on earth would you walk into that? Much

Agreed, your point being?

That even you should be able to look where you are walking

Well it is fucking disgusting. Animals should learn to use flush

Turns out its quite easy to get a cat to do that, but you don't
bother. You let them shit in the neighbours gardens and yours.

Very few people have managed to train their cat to use a toilet,

Bullshit.

WTF? Most cats do not ever use a human toilet.


Separate issue to how many have tried to train them to do that.

Quote:
let alone use the flush handle.

Even you should be able to manage that.

But a cat lacks dexterity.


That's why you do that, stupid.

And to be fair, some places could do with more bins - how far would

I'm not actually silly enough to collect dog shit
and even you arent actually silly enough to collect

So you just leave it for someone to stand in?

No one is stupid enough to stand in it

Then why do you think there's a fine for letting your dog shit?

Because some fools love to have stupid rules.

Or maybe they find shit disgusting.


Your poor toilet training is your problem.

Same with the even more stupid rule that
the dog must be on a lead at all times.

Only fools take any notice of stupid rules like that.

It's to prevent angry dogs hurting other dogs, or farm animals.


Nope. And the dogs arent angry.

Quote:

Cats tend to do it in flowerbeds. It doesn't get stood in, just all
over
the hands of people weeding the garden :-)

Which is a lot worse than getting it on your shoe.

When you're weeding a flowerbed, you're paying attention to where your
hands go.


But cat shit isnt always that obvious.

It's as daft as speedbumps, those that bother slowing down for
them
were

I don't.

Don't slow down for them or don't obey the speed limit?

Don't obey the speed limit but do slow down for them.

Are you one of those annoying people who slow down and speed up for
every one?

Depends on the bump. The ones down the
main street don't need to slow down much
and we only have one racetrack road which
has a 3 on it and those you don't have to
slow down if you are going at the speed limit.

Do you have those stupid square ones?

Nope, we arent that stupid. Ours are mostly part of the road.

The ones on the racetrack road are 3 big metal plates
bent in a hump bolted to the road. With those you can
center the car over the plate, have the wheels go down
each side of the plate and get no real bump at all.

That's what I meant by square ones.


OK.

Quote:
The only ones that could make me slow down are those which go right across
the road. Even with those, a lot of them have a gap on the edge to allow
water flow, so I place one wheel there and the car just lifts on one side.


That doesn't work with parked cars.

Quote:
If you straddle them well, you can go about double the limit.

We arent stupid enough to have any like that.

You just said "With those you can center the car over the plate, have the
wheels go down each side of the plate and get no real bump at all."

And for any bump, if you accelerate as you hit it, you lift the front of
your car up and glide over it.

Bullshit.

Don't you understand the laws of physics? When you accelerate, the front
of your car lifts.


No it doesn't with front wheel drive car.

> Angular momentum.

Not with a front wheel drive car.

Quote:
It does make it easy to overtake though.

Nope, all of ours are on roads with only
one lane in each direction and the main
street is a fully divided road, no overtaking.

What do you mean fully divided?

Massive great double width carpark
down the center, with full sized trees.
https://goo.gl/maps/SWUsDGv3CP27Udsx7

That's a rather heavily built up area.


Unsurprising given that it's the main street.

Quote:
Those buggers must be reading my posts,
the streetview has just been updated, 18
months after the car was visible here.

But only on the main street, the rest of town is is still 11 years old.
The camera must have broken while zooming round town I spose because I
did see it where the street view hasn't been updated.

Maybe they're just behind schedule.


By 11 years ?

In fact when checking the dates I discovered something
I hadn't noticed previously, that some parts of town were
done in 2008 and some in 2010. No obvious reason for
that that its in the wilds of rural australia.

Quote:
That pedestrian crossing is one of the speed bumps.

We have speed bumps with no warnings. Nothing painted on the road at all,


We do too, but there are signs on polls before those.
All too new to be on the latest street view that only
covers a few of the main roads which don't have
speed bumps except down the main street.

> or it's worn off. And some are three times the size of the others.

We only have the two types and only 3 lots of what
you call square ones, all on the one raceway road.

> There's a road near here with a 20mph limit.

We do have 40kmph limits outside schools but
the limit only applys for 90 minutes at the start
and end of the school day so no speed bumps.

Quote:
All the bumps except one, you can go about 30-40. But that one is a nasty
bugger, anything over 5mph and you scrape your car to pieces. It's
literally a foot high.


Show us the streetview.

Quote:
I can't understand how anyone with a Porsche etc (and it's a posh area so
there must be some) can get over it at all.


Not just a posh car, there isnt a foot clearance under the
Getz as I discovered, even the shortest bottle jacks don't fit.

Quote:
I'd love to buy an expensive car, ground it on a bump, then get the
council to pay for the £1000s of damage.


The magistrate would tell you to go and fuck
yourself in appropriately bureaucratic language.

Quote:
Nobody gonna stop me overtaking in a built up area.

They will there when the car in front of you is in the middle
of the road and they always are. There isnt room to get past.

Why would someone be driving in the middle of the road?


Because that road isnt wide enough for two lanes of traffic.

Quote:
Speeders like me ignore them and bounce over them.

And get to pay for the repairs to their cars.

Suspension is designed for that.

Wrong.

What do you think it's for?

Normal variations in the road surface.

It can handle much more than that.

Have fun explaining why potholes can fuck it.

Never had suspension fail on a pothole.


You don't understand what potholes do
to shock absorbers. It doesn't snap off.

Quote:
The only time I've had to replace suspension was when it was old and
rusty. It can take quite a knock otherwise.

Thanks for that completely superfluous proof that
you are no mechanic. It has nothing to do with rust.

Its normally the shock absorbers that get fucked by fools
like you deliberately slamming into the road bumps.

No, every time I've had a shock replaced, I've seen the old one and it was
rusted to hell.


Rust on outside of a shock absorber is irrelevant.

> I've never busted a relatively new one.

You have in fact fucked them all by tearing across speed bumps.

Quote:
Even easier for you to work out which of your cats did it
given that even you don't actually have a hundred cats yet.

I use a camera and know what each cat looks like.

But dna is easier to do after the event. Its unlikely that you
will have the cat caught in the act of pissing on the monitor.

The camera runs continuously and has motion detection, so it
doesn't
use
up the memory for a month.

Sure, but you are very unlikely to have the camera
pointing at where that cat chooses to piss.

They tend to choose favourite places.

Unlikely that particular cat did.

Why do you say that?

Because this is the only time its pissed on that monitor.

No it isn't. It's just the only time it seeped into the LCD panel.

Wow! It's shrinking! I guess it hadn't peeled off the polarizer as I
thought.


Yeah, looks more like liquid between layers of plastic.

Quote:
Must just be damp and shorting something. It's drying out, it's going
away!


The cat will be along soon to piss on it again.

So what's this obsession everyone has with walking their dog?

Just another example of people that don't have a fucking clue, like
you charging over speed bumps and fucking your car in the process.


The only things that fail on my car are old rusty parts.

And there's no fucking way I'm going to waste my time slowing down for bumps which shouldn't be there in the first place, and in the process waste a tonne of fuel.

I used to get bitten a bit when I tormented

I was scratched severely by one of my cats when I was trying to comb
it.

I've never actually been stupid enough to comb a cat, or bath one
either.

You would if one had fleas.

Nope, never did, used a flea collar instead.

The only two things I've found to ever work are:
1) A comb.
2) A dish of soapy water with a 7W bulb above it.

Then you are too stupid to use a well designed flea collar.


I've tried all sorts of things, nothing works. Tablets, sprays, drops, etc, etc.

me back.

Wrong, again. It has in fact happened to me and I didn't.


You just allow yourself to be beaten up? I'll have to do that if I ever see you. You just stand there?!

The trouble with putting a tire on your car is it's not
distinguishable
from running out of energy.

Of course its distinguishable from the context.

It still makes you look like an American dumbass.

Only to fools like you.

I use proper English.

I couldn't care less what stupid poms claim is proper english.

Do you also say aloominum, erb, stoopid, stoodent?

Nope, and I say tire the same way you do too.

But I know how to spell it properly.

I know how you poms spell it and arent silly enough to spell it that
way.

We invented the language.

Nope, you stole it from everyone else.

It's called English, because it's from England.

Wrong again, and it isnt from that soggy little
frigid island anyway, its stolen from all sorts
of places all over the world, even from the pakis.

We combined several languages

Had many fancy words imposed by those unspeakable
Normans with the worst of the grovellers to the Norman
invaders choosing to use norman words when english
already had perfectly serviceable words like fuck and
arse and dick etc already.


We still use fuck and arse and dick, what are you talking about?

Quote:
and made the universal language that most of the world uses.

But had quite a bit of the world that used that language choose
to bin some of the sillier aspects of it and do their own.


Yeah the stoopid yanks fucked everything up, they call solder sodder. There is an L!

Quote:
And you lot have always had plenty of unique regional words
that hardly any of the rest of england, let alone the rest of the
world had even heard of too.


And we laugh at those morons, specifically the Glaswegians.

Quote:
That's the way living languages work.

Only the stupid frogs have ever been actually stupid enough
to have a handful of stuffed shirts proclaim what words can
and cannot be used and how they must be spelt.


France has regional dialects too. I met a bloke who said sink instead of sank (as in the number 5, cinq).

Quote:
Why copy a yank instead of a Brit?

I don't copy anyone. I do what makes sense.

That's why I don't fart around with ies and use ys instead.

I am logical with some words. I say and write pronounciation, because
it
comes from pronounce, not pronunce.

I couldn't care less where it comes from.

What matters is whether the individual reading it knows what I
am referring to, and they do when I spell it tire, from the context.

They also think you're a fucking idiot.

Only a few fools like you.


No, most people laugh at those who can't spell.

Quote:
Did you run out of energy when changing the wheel?

My energy doesn't have a tread or wear on just one side either.


Why should I have to work out which word you mean from context? Just use the right one in the first place.

Quote:
was wearing on one side and so needed to
be replaced sooner than it would otherwise need to be.

The alignment was well out and I don't get that effect
anymore now that the alignment has been fixed.

Ah, fair enough, I did that once too. What annoys me is garages
who
seem
to think it should be done every time you replace a tyre.

I've never had one do that but I mostly use the cheapest tire
specialist
when I need a new tire.

The one that wanted to align it was Kwik Fit. They also sold me a
brand
new battery which registered 4 volts, and didn't know how to change
a
brake calliper (we only do the pads mate).

Clearly an operation best avoided.

Most garages are best avoided.

I havent found that with any of them, but then I do almost
all of the work myself and only get stuff like the tires done
for free because I don't have the equipment to do a proper
dynamic balance or wheel alignment myself and can't
justify the cost of that equipment when I need stuff like a
wheel alignment so rarely. Just the once in 60 years in fact.
And it costs peanuts to get it done by a pro who knows
what he is doing and did a brilliant job. Cost just $66 and
he identified why I was getting a significant wheel tramp
at a particular speed which neither me or my mate who is
also an excellent mechanic didn't realise what the cause was.

I often went to SMS for tyres, since they have every size in stock and
fit
it while you wait without booking, just turn up, and they're cheap.

Same with the operation I use except I did notice that one customer
had to have their tires ordered. Dunno how common that is with
them. Cant even remember what those tires were for.

That can happen with sporty BMWs with unusual tyres.

I don't recall it was one of those, one of the smaller
asian things that someone had got for his daughter
and she turned her nose up at and signed up for a new
car just after starting her first job with a bank loan.

The point is, is it a rare car for that area?

Dunno given that I can't remember what it was.

But if you have a car many others have, hey should be in stock.

Mine have always been and most of the time others have
showed up while I was there, theirs has been in stock too.
Not always tho. I don't care if they don't have some in stock
and so can charge lower prices for the common tires like mine.

How do those things link together?

If they keep stock of whatever they have ever been asked for,
that will obviously cost more than only keeping the most popular
tires in stock and ordering in the unusual ones as required. So they
will obviously be able to flog me the tires I use cheaper.


Or add the price onto the unusual ones only.

Quote:
One day I got them to fix my brakes - they charged me £93
(before labour) for a calliper I could have got for £30 on Ebay..

So you should have checked that before you got them to do that.

At that time the car was almost undriveable, I couldn't be bothered
taking
it back home and in again.

And you know so little about cars that you didn't know what needed doing.

Not everyone knows everything.

But most don't know as little about cars as you do. Or dogs either.


Most people have no clue how to fix anything on a car.

Quote:
Another garage, Farmer's Autocare, I took the car for an MOT, and they
gave me a list of what needed doing. I bought all the parts, handed
them to the guy, and he refused to fit them, he wanted markup on his
own
parts. I called them cowboys, reported them to a few trading bodies,
and
went to Foz Sports, who did the work without question.

We fit them ourselves.

I'm a shit mechanic. I've never even replaced a brake.

I've done a lot more than that, including wheel bearings.

Lucky you.

No luck involved.


It's a saying.

Quote:
That mate of mine has just bought a Merc C180 for
just $1500 which had a bit of miss in the engine and
got the non genuine part needed to fix it for peanuts.

But after what Clare and 'Arlen' have said about high end kraut cars, it
will be interesting to see what else ends up needing fixing over time.

Him and his son had previously had 3 Hyundai Grandeurs
that also cost them peanuts and ended up with 2 good ones
and have cost them nothing because they have sold what
parts they didn't need themselves of the third on ebay etc.

Only German car I've had was VW,

Same here.

that was reliable

Nothing like as reliable as the Getz which had no warranty claims what
so ever. The Golf did, and more than one as well. Important ones too.

But since my 73 Golf, things got much worse.

and cheap parts.

Yeah, but the Getz is even cheaper.


Never owned a Hyundai so I don't know what they're like. But if it makes me drive half the speed limit like the rest of the moronic owners around here, no thanks!

Quote:
I go to Foz all the time now, the last visit, he replaced an exhaust
bracket (£3.50) and topped up the gearbox oil (a litre for £2), then
only charged me half an hour labour on top of that for both things.

came across a big alsatian out on its own doing something very
similarly with most of the trees and gates on the street verge,
and going right down the driveway of some houses and bailing up
the dog behind the gate at the end of the drive. Hilarious..

What annoys me is when people allow their dogs (while still on
the
lead!)
to piss on people's property.

You've clearly never walked a dog on a lead.
There is no way to stop that dog behaviour.

You pull the dog away from where it's pissing.

Doesn't stop it pissing on the next one.

Pull it again, if it continues, kick it.

Doesn't stop it, psychopath.

They prefer not to get beaten.

Thanks for that completely superfluous
proof that you have never had a dog.

Any animal or human will avoid what makes it be punished.

I'm not actually stupid enough to have a
dog on a lead when out walking with a dog.

Then I guess you have a well behaved dog.

I have never been silly enough to walk any dog like that.

Some dogs are so fucking stupid that if you take them out without a lead,
they attack, maim, injure, or kill other dogs.

I have enough of a clue to be selective about the breeds I have.

Why do you think people smack their kids?

Dogs work differently to kids.

No, they learn just like us.

Thanks for that completely superfluous
proof that you have never had one.

I know many people with dogs and have seen them train out bad behaviour.

Not pissing on things you havent. You'll
never train a male dog to never do that
when out walking not on a lead.

Or to not sniff things either.


If you kick it hard enough, it'll never do it again.

Quote:
Why do you think you can make them sit, fetch, etc?

Because they like doing it with fetching.

And they like sitting?

Yep, do it regularly.


Only when they feel like it.

Quote:
And shitting in the correct place?

Plenty of dogs do choose to do what they decide that
their master wants them to do. Cats don't work like that.


Mine do. 8 of my 9 cats now shit correctly.

Quote:
I doubt it. They do it because it pleases the leader of the pack (you).

That's not why they fetch. They like chasing things and bring
it back so you can chuck it again and they can chase it again.


The stupid dogs fetch it then run off with it. You have to train it to bring it to you.

Quote:
And can't teach a cat to fetch, for a reason.

Lack of dexterity.

Nope, they arent into getting humans to chuck
something so they can bring it back endlessly.


Because they don't see the point. I don't either, I wouldn't enjoy throwing something for my dog over and over again.

Quote:
Some of them do bring you a present of something
they have killed. Dogs don't do that instinctively.


A couple of mine did that twice each. They won't do it again.

Quote:
I find most cats are trainable. If you get angry enough, they
eventually stop doing things.

They work well for running up the vertical trunk of a tree tho.

Just another example of people that don't have a fucking clue, like
you charging over speed bumps and fucking your car in the process.

No cat has ever torn my skin off, or tried to run up my leg either.

I used to get bitten a bit when I tormented
a cat as a kid but don't do that anymore.

I was scratched severely by one of my cats when I was trying to comb
it.

I've never actually been stupid enough to comb a cat, or bath one
either.

You would if one had fleas.

Nope, never did, used a flea collar instead.

The only two things I've found to ever work are:
1) A comb.
2) A dish of soapy water with a 7W bulb above it.


Then you are too stupid to use a well designed flea collar.

Looks like you are not the first to have this problem:

https://www.overclock.net/forum/44-monitors-displays/1592651-cat-peed-my-tv-monitor-problem.html

Others mention similar cat problems.

I like the advice "upgrade from a cat to a dog". Trouble is
you
have
to
walk them.

Nope, plenty of them are happy to walk themselves. When I was
building
the
house, one of the neighbours dogs used to have a regular
circuit
every
single
day, regular as clockwork, around the same route, sniffing and
pissing
in
the
same places every day. Hilarious to watch.

Let them do that in the UK and the moronic authorities will
snatch
them
up.

When I walked back to the place to pick up my car after getting
a
wheel
alignment done,

Isn't that something garages do to rip you off? I've never
found
it
necessary.

I did, the tire

You spell it the yank way?!

I actually spell it my way, like I do with most ys instead of ies
too.

The trouble with putting a tire on your car is it's not
distinguishable
from running out of energy.

Of course its distinguishable from the context.

It still makes you look like an American dumbass.

Only to fools like you.

I use proper English.

I couldn't care less what stupid poms claim is proper english.

Do you also say aloominum, erb, stoopid, stoodent?

Nope, and I say tire the same way you do too.

But I know how to spell it properly.

I know how you poms spell it and arent silly enough to spell it that
way.

We invented the language.

Nope, you stole it from everyone else.

It's called English, because it's from England.

Wrong again, and it isnt from that soggy little
frigid island anyway, its stolen from all sorts
of places all over the world, even from the pakis.

We combined several languages


Had many fancy words imposed by those unspeakable
Normans with the worst of the grovellers to the Norman
invaders choosing to use norman words when english
already had perfectly serviceable words like fuck and
arse and dick etc already.

> and made the universal language that most of the world uses.

But had quite a bit of the world that used that language choose
to bin some of the sillier aspects of it and do their own.

And you lot have always had plenty of unique regional words
that hardly any of the rest of england, let alone the rest of the
world had even heard of too.

That's the way living languages work.

Only the stupid frogs have ever been actually stupid enough
to have a handful of stuffed shirts proclaim what words can
and cannot be used and how they must be spelt.

Quote:
Why copy a yank instead of a Brit?

I don't copy anyone. I do what makes sense.

That's why I don't fart around with ies and use ys instead.

I am logical with some words. I say and write pronounciation, because
it
comes from pronounce, not pronunce.

I couldn't care less where it comes from.

What matters is whether the individual reading it knows what I
am referring to, and they do when I spell it tire, from the context.

They also think you're a fucking idiot.


Only a few fools like you.

> Did you run out of energy when changing the wheel?

My energy doesn't have a tread or wear on just one side either.

Quote:
was wearing on one side and so needed to
be replaced sooner than it would otherwise need to be.

The alignment was well out and I don't get that effect
anymore now that the alignment has been fixed.

Ah, fair enough, I did that once too. What annoys me is garages
who
seem
to think it should be done every time you replace a tyre.

I've never had one do that but I mostly use the cheapest tire
specialist
when I need a new tire.

The one that wanted to align it was Kwik Fit. They also sold me a
brand
new battery which registered 4 volts, and didn't know how to change
a
brake calliper (we only do the pads mate).

Clearly an operation best avoided.

Most garages are best avoided.

I havent found that with any of them, but then I do almost
all of the work myself and only get stuff like the tires done
for free because I don't have the equipment to do a proper
dynamic balance or wheel alignment myself and can't
justify the cost of that equipment when I need stuff like a
wheel alignment so rarely. Just the once in 60 years in fact.
And it costs peanuts to get it done by a pro who knows
what he is doing and did a brilliant job. Cost just $66 and
he identified why I was getting a significant wheel tramp
at a particular speed which neither me or my mate who is
also an excellent mechanic didn't realise what the cause was.

I often went to SMS for tyres, since they have every size in stock and
fit
it while you wait without booking, just turn up, and they're cheap.

Same with the operation I use except I did notice that one customer
had to have their tires ordered. Dunno how common that is with
them. Cant even remember what those tires were for.

That can happen with sporty BMWs with unusual tyres.

I don't recall it was one of those, one of the smaller
asian things that someone had got for his daughter
and she turned her nose up at and signed up for a new
car just after starting her first job with a bank loan.

The point is, is it a rare car for that area?


Dunno given that I can't remember what it was.

Quote:
But if you have a car many others have, hey should be in stock.

Mine have always been and most of the time others have
showed up while I was there, theirs has been in stock too.
Not always tho. I don't care if they don't have some in stock
and so can charge lower prices for the common tires like mine.

How do those things link together?


If they keep stock of whatever they have ever been asked for,
that will obviously cost more than only keeping the most popular
tires in stock and ordering in the unusual ones as required. So they
will obviously be able to flog me the tires I use cheaper.

Quote:
One day I got them to fix my brakes - they charged me £93
(before labour) for a calliper I could have got for £30 on Ebay.

So you should have checked that before you got them to do that.

At that time the car was almost undriveable, I couldn't be bothered
taking
it back home and in again.

And you know so little about cars that you didn't know what needed doing.

Not everyone knows everything.


But most don't know as little about cars as you do. Or dogs either.

Quote:
Another garage, Farmer's Autocare, I took the car for an MOT, and they
gave me a list of what needed doing. I bought all the parts, handed
them to the guy, and he refused to fit them, he wanted markup on his
own
parts. I called them cowboys, reported them to a few trading bodies,
and
went to Foz Sports, who did the work without question.

We fit them ourselves.

I'm a shit mechanic. I've never even replaced a brake.

I've done a lot more than that, including wheel bearings.

Lucky you.


No luck involved.

Quote:
That mate of mine has just bought a Merc C180 for
just $1500 which had a bit of miss in the engine and
got the non genuine part needed to fix it for peanuts.

But after what Clare and 'Arlen' have said about high end kraut cars, it
will be interesting to see what else ends up needing fixing over time.

Him and his son had previously had 3 Hyundai Grandeurs
that also cost them peanuts and ended up with 2 good ones
and have cost them nothing because they have sold what
parts they didn't need themselves of the third on ebay etc.

Only German car I've had was VW,


Same here.

> that was reliable

Nothing like as reliable as the Getz which had no warranty claims what
so ever. The Golf did, and more than one as well. Important ones too.

But since my 73 Golf, things got much worse.

> and cheap parts.

Yeah, but the Getz is even cheaper.

Quote:
I go to Foz all the time now, the last visit, he replaced an exhaust
bracket (£3.50) and topped up the gearbox oil (a litre for £2), then
only charged me half an hour labour on top of that for both things.

came across a big alsatian out on its own doing something very
similarly with most of the trees and gates on the street verge,
and going right down the driveway of some houses and bailing up
the dog behind the gate at the end of the drive. Hilarious.

What annoys me is when people allow their dogs (while still on
the
lead!)
to piss on people's property.

You've clearly never walked a dog on a lead.
There is no way to stop that dog behaviour.

You pull the dog away from where it's pissing.

Doesn't stop it pissing on the next one.

Pull it again, if it continues, kick it.

Doesn't stop it, psychopath.

They prefer not to get beaten.

Thanks for that completely superfluous
proof that you have never had a dog.

Any animal or human will avoid what makes it be punished.

I'm not actually stupid enough to have a
dog on a lead when out walking with a dog.

Then I guess you have a well behaved dog.


I have never been silly enough to walk any dog like that.

Quote:
Some dogs are so fucking stupid that if you take them out without a lead,
they attack, maim, injure, or kill other dogs.


I have enough of a clue to be selective about the breeds I have.

Quote:
Why do you think people smack their kids?

Dogs work differently to kids.

No, they learn just like us.

Thanks for that completely superfluous
proof that you have never had one.

I know many people with dogs and have seen them train out bad behaviour.


Not pissing on things you havent. You'll
never train a male dog to never do that
when out walking not on a lead.

Or to not sniff things either.

Quote:
Why do you think you can make them sit, fetch, etc?

Because they like doing it with fetching.

And they like sitting?


Yep, do it regularly.

> And shitting in the correct place?

Plenty of dogs do choose to do what they decide that
their master wants them to do. Cats don't work like that.

> I doubt it. They do it because it pleases the leader of the pack (you).

That's not why they fetch. They like chasing things and bring
it back so you can chuck it again and they can chase it again.

Quote:
And can't teach a cat to fetch, for a reason.

Lack of dexterity.


Nope, they arent into getting humans to chuck
something so they can bring it back endlessly.

Some of them do bring you a present of something
they have killed. Dogs don't do that instinctively.

I find most cats are trainable. If you get angry enough, they
eventually stop doing things.

Cats tend to do it in flowerbeds. It doesn't get stood in, just all over
the hands of people weeding the garden :-)

Which is a lot worse than getting it on your shoe.


When you're weeding a flowerbed, you're paying attention to where your hands go.

Quote:
It's as daft as speedbumps, those that bother slowing down for them
were
already obeying the speed limit.

I don't.

Don't slow down for them or don't obey the speed limit?

Don't obey the speed limit but do slow down for them.

Are you one of those annoying people who slow down and speed up for
every one?

Depends on the bump. The ones down the
main street don't need to slow down much
and we only have one racetrack road which
has a 3 on it and those you don't have to
slow down if you are going at the speed limit.

Do you have those stupid square ones?

Nope, we arent that stupid. Ours are mostly part of the road.

The ones on the racetrack road are 3 big metal plates
bent in a hump bolted to the road. With those you can
center the car over the plate, have the wheels go down
each side of the plate and get no real bump at all.


That's what I meant by square ones. The only ones that could make me slow down are those which go right across the road. Even with those, a lot of them have a gap on the edge to allow water flow, so I place one wheel there and the car just lifts on one side.

Quote:
If you straddle them well, you can go about double the limit.

We arent stupid enough to have any like that.


You just said "With those you can center the car over the plate, have the wheels go down each side of the plate and get no real bump at all."

Quote:
And for any bump, if you accelerate as you hit it, you lift the front of
your car up and glide over it.

Bullshit.


Don't you understand the laws of physics? When you accelerate, the front of your car lifts. Angular momentum.

Quote:
It does make it easy to overtake though.

Nope, all of ours are on roads with only
one lane in each direction and the main
street is a fully divided road, no overtaking.

What do you mean fully divided?

Massive great double width carpark
down the center, with full sized trees.
https://goo.gl/maps/SWUsDGv3CP27Udsx7


That's a rather heavily built up area.

Quote:
Those buggers must be reading my posts,
the streetview has just been updated, 18
months after the car was visible here.

But only on the main street, the rest town is is still
11 years old. The camera must have broken while
zooming round town I spose because I did see it
where the street view hasn't been updated.


Maybe they're just behind schedule.

> That pedestrian crossing is one of the speed bumps.

We have speed bumps with no warnings. Nothing painted on the road at all, or it's worn off. And some are three times the size of the others. There's a road near here with a 20mph limit. All the bumps except one, you can go about 30-40. But that one is a nasty bugger, anything over 5mph and you scrape your car to pieces. It's literally a foot high. I can't understand how anyone with a Porsche etc (and it's a posh area so there must be some) can get over it at all. I'd love to buy an expensive car, ground it on a bump, then get the council to pay for the £1000s of damage.

Quote:
Nobody gonna stop me overtaking in a built up area.

They will there when the car in front of you is in the middle
of the road and they always are. There isnt room to get past.


Why would someone be driving in the middle of the road?

Quote:
Speeders like me ignore them and bounce over them.

And get to pay for the repairs to their cars.

Suspension is designed for that.

Wrong.

What do you think it's for?

Normal variations in the road surface.

It can handle much more than that.

Have fun explaining why potholes can fuck it.


Never had suspension fail on a pothole.

Quote:
The only time I've had to replace suspension was when it was old and
rusty. It can take quite a knock otherwise.

Thanks for that completely superfluous proof that
you are no mechanic. It has nothing to do with rust.

Its normally the shock absorbers that get fucked by fools
like you deliberately slamming into the road bumps.


No, every time I've had a shock replaced, I've seen the old one and it was rusted to hell. I've never busted a relatively new one.

Quote:
Even easier for you to work out which of your cats did it
given that even you don't actually have a hundred cats yet.

I use a camera and know what each cat looks like.

But dna is easier to do after the event. Its unlikely that you
will have the cat caught in the act of pissing on the monitor.

The camera runs continuously and has motion detection, so it doesn't
use
up the memory for a month.

Sure, but you are very unlikely to have the camera
pointing at where that cat chooses to piss.

They tend to choose favourite places.

Unlikely that particular cat did.

Why do you say that?

Because this is the only time its pissed on that monitor.

No it isn't. It's just the only time it seeped into the LCD panel.


Wow! It's shrinking! I guess it hadn't peeled off the polarizer as I thought. Must just be damp and shorting something. It's drying out, it's going away!
