|Thread: Have a Rant|
You can`t ban everything because some people have accidents.
Search some actual facts online instead of sensationalist headlines and you will see that even in the US, accidental Firearm deaths is a tiny proportion of the mortality rate, Heart Disease is by far the biggest killer over there, accidental deaths is a small percentage of the total. Firearms is a tiny percentage of the accidental total, with the majority Motor vehicle accidents, drowning, fire etc.
Sometimes you just have to accept Darwinism for the benefits it brings to society

Why should everyone there who owns guns responsibly be punished for one woman who doesn't put the safety on hers when its in her handbag ?
It was entirely preventable by her taking responsibility for a deadly weapon in her bag to be kept safe
Now you have to get yourself in massive debt to further your education, then end up working in McDonalds on a zero hours contract after you finish because there are no jobs available
It sometimes takes a couple of business days for the petrol station, especially when you pay at the pump, to even process the payment, (like with a direct debit where the money actually leaves your account 3 days before it gets to the other account) so bearing in mind since Wednesday last week there were 2 bank holidays and a weekend, your payment probably still hasn`t been processed on Tesco`s end and presented to the Bank
|Thread: Sourcing Teflon/PTFE tube for a canister joiner|
Demon Tweeks do Samco Silicone hose meant for motorsport turbo charger connections, you can select any ID and its supplied in 10CM lengths or any multiple of 10CM if you increase the Quantity, so for say a 30CM length put the quantity to 3 etc

For instance ive just bought some silicon hoses for my sons MX bike from the US on ebay
MSN Money puts the exchange rate at - 1.6113
Paypal rate was actually - 1.5640
They`re making an extra nearly 5 cents on every Dollar !
It is a difference in exchange rate from HK and Paypal, HK prices are not live, they only update their rates a couple of times a year and as you know the Foreign exchange rate is constantly changing, Paypal always use a worse rate than the actual one as they then skim an extra profit off that too
You are not actually buying from a UK warehouse and UK Laws / Regulations etc do not apply, you are buying from a Chinese computer, the Warehouse is just a postal location in this country they happened to forward some stuff from China to, to make it quicker to send out to your address
|Thread: mid wing fun fly?|
Fits the bill ?
I`ve got the older version of this - **LINK**
Its great for what I need, its quiet but powerful and comes with a variable humidistat so you set the RH you want it at and leave it do its own thing. If you don't connect it up to a permanent drain it fills the container about every 24 hours ( 10 L on mine I think ) so you know it does its job well.

|Thread: Have You Tried To Renew Your Vehicle Tax Today?|
Edited By Codename-John on 03/10/2014 17:27:18
You can buy 1 day insurance if you just wanted to drive the car home, as I did with my last car, it had tax on but as I was selling my van at the time I bought the car, drove it home and then stored it off road until I sold my van and swapped the insurance around properly ( couldn't afford to insure 2 vehicles separately )
With the new system, you would have to tax it for at least a month just to drive it home if you needed too, and if you don't and are caught then you face having your car seized and crushed if you don't pay the extortionate fine / towing fee. There is no grace period, you are liable for taxing the vehicle from the day you transfer ownership, if you don't pay it or declare SORN, an automatic fine is issued, £80 I last heard
Have you not noticed the extra little white Cameras being put up on routes in and out of towns, stuck to the side of lamp posts etc, I wonder what they might be for
the new system is the rip off, you are not able to pass on any remaining tax if you sell your car, you have to cancel the tax and the buyer has to tax it immediately, as you can only purchase or refund whole months, the WHOLE of one month will be taxed twice for the same vehicle
|Thread: S-FHSS Compatible receivers|
Len if you click on the link in my original post ( where it says KLMS in red ) it says they are no longer available, the Delta 8 ones A.A. Barry mentions are HERE for £19 in UK
Or HERE it says £14.25 but give or take on the exchange rate, from Hong Kong

|Thread: Fake or Genuine?|
If you look at their feedback, quite a few people seem to have bought one lately with no complaint
|Thread: Greenacres 2015 Mass launch Radjet|
Just looking at the ramp, with it only being plastic trunking and being mostly free in the air wont it distort with the weight as it moves up, Trunking isn't very firm at the best of times, it bends and wobbles about easily, possibly resulting in a disasterous launch if one of the servo covers hangs up if it twists, might some sort of bracing at the top to keep each side parallel and some stiffening lengthwise be a better design ?
|Thread: have you ever|
Aren`t wives supposed to make cakes ? what was she doing out of the kitchen to notice the paint tray anyway ?
