  1. ColinJ replied to the thread The taste of cow slurry!.

    That sounds like a scene from I'llPuckerLips Now! Globalti: Smell that? You smell that? Lance: What? Globalti: Slurry, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. [kneels] Globalti: I love the smell of slurry in the morning....

  2. ColinJ replied to the thread Storm 'Doris'.

    I did an audax ride with SpuddyJones at the weekend and the forecast was spot on for the first 4 hours. It then said that we stood a good chance of getting caught in rain as we came over 2 big hills on the way back to Rochdale. In fact, we didn't...

    Which you had already posted, of course! :banghead: I can't keep track of all the different threads I am in and inevitably end up repeating myself. *** *** I do remember posting that somewhere else recently, but I can't remember where! :laugh:

  4. ColinJ liked craigwend's post in the thread Stupid things we all must have done.

    If you forget your lock & when you realise as you are visiting the dentist, it's not best advice to undo your quick release to catch any 'ne'er do wells' who may try & take said bike... & then forget you've done this after the visit. I got all...

  5. ColinJ liked Kestevan's post in the thread Stupid things we all must have done.

    I once had a Triumph GT6, and was working on the cylinder head on the edge of the bench. I managed to knock it off and stupidly thought trying to catch it would be a good idea.... I did learn two things though... I can't stop a falling 6...

  6. ColinJ liked Johnsop99's post in the thread Stupid things we all must have done.

    A couple of years ago arrived at Kings School Worcester in the van for an event. Had special permission to park in the "square" to unload. Tyres on sack trolley seemed a bit soft, good job I've got a footpump. Checked tyre pressure on side of...

  7. ColinJ replied to the thread 12 inches ?.

    Yes, but I don't use it as a rule! :whistle: Oh, sorry, you weren't looking for smutty jokes ... :laugh: The sizes do sound close enough to work; rubber inner tubes are pretty stretchy!

    Can you use Android 'screen mirroring' to Chromecast? On Android 5.0.1 (Lollipop) that is Settings/Connections/Connect and share - (scroll down) Screen Mirroring.

  10. ColinJ replied to the thread Cost of living.....

    I worked out the other day that I was earning £18,000 a year 25 years ago. I didn't feel particularly well-off at that time and the money just got frittered away. Despite a quarter of a century of inflation, I could now get by quite happily on...

    And here is the evidence: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/about-us/who/accuracy/forecasts Looks as though they get the forecast right most of the time.

  13. Joffey liked Drago's post in the thread GT85(!) Question.

    No problems here. My sweet lube sprays out my nozzle whenever required. And my GT85 does too.

  14. winjim liked Spinney's post in the thread Turned down for a job - possible discrimination.

    If not illegal, definitely dodgy. Once you've asked the question, how can you show that the information did not sway your decision. IMO anyone who thinks that being shown round the factory/school/whatever before the interview is not actually...
