Don't get me started on the subject of motorbikes.............and before Jools gets on his soapbox, I'd invite him to sit in my car and we'll drive up and down our Dale one Sunday afternoon. The antics of some bikers would take years off anyone's life expectancy....and some of them appear to be older than me :shock:

There are sensible road users and stupid road users, irrespective of their age or mode of transport. The best advice i ever received was to be paranoid and treat every other road user as a psycopath out to get you!

That was my dad's advice when we started driving. Always assume that everyone else on the road is going to do something insane.

Mine said the same thing. Dad's are geniuses.

My Dad said something very similar.
Not having a Dad or Mum to talk to is an Abomination unto Nuggan :(

I've never had driving lessons (I have dyspraxia which effects hand eye coordination, and I've never needed to be able to drive)
But my dad did give me a kinda similar piece of advice upon going to uni: "You're going to get offered stuff, be sensible."
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

I was asked to visit a pensioner who was having a problem with her computer. It appears that a couple of days ago she went to see her emails and received some message saying there was a fault with her machine, and giving a phone number to ring.

She then spent around an hour on the phone to this "company" during which time she let them take control of her PC remotely. When they had finished, they charged her nearly £400.

I had to tell her that she had been the victim of a confidence trick; there had been nothing wrong with the machine; I removed some software that had been installed during this period, and re-installed her anti-virus software. I told her to contact her credit card supplier to tell them what had happened and to see if she could get a refund. Googling the name of the company brought up loads of warnings about its activities.

It appears that she won't receive a refund as what happened was not (technically) illegal, but her bank offered to change her credit card as it may now be compromised.

Such crooks are an abomination unto Nuggan. I just hope there's a particular Hell assigned to them...

I'm gobsmacked that this is not illegal. Can the Office of Fair Trading do anything?

Thou shalt not state that bacteria or viruses are smart whilst it is evolution that sorts out those unfit to replicate, for it is not only an abomination unto Nuggan, but to scientists across the planet. :evil:

Perhaps a bit specific, but it's something that's getting on my nervous. I'm having a course (more of a lecture than a practical course, which it was said to be) in microbiology at the moment. I hate when lecturers who should know better use terms like smart, cunning or anything to refer to bacteria, viruses etc. adapting to antibiotics, the immune system etc.
It so smacks of creationism.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss

'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!

Nothing wrong with specific. Abominations Unto Nuggan are often specific. ;)
