      You can ring up the garage and ask what oil they used, have heard different opinions on whether you can mix oils but probably preferable to running with the light on. If light is not on yet not an emergency. Don’t overfill oil

      You can do a full oil change if you fancy, hour or so, borrow a proper torque wrench

      I think allowing people to vote from their own computers over their home networks would be a waiting disaster of almost epic proportions. The computers aren’t secure, many are malware or spyware compromised, and there is basically no way for the voting servers to overcome this.

      Roughly what kind of job? The places to recruit Node devs aren’t necessarily the same as C++ (for example). You’ll tend to have more success recruiting grads for trendy stacks too.

      Depending on what your company’s social media presence is like that’s been pretty successful for the last couple of companies I’ve worked for. Also, LinkedIn is great and almost more useful in smaller markets, like sheffield, where the community is relatively small and so a little exposure can get you in front of a most of the potential applicants.

      If ecigs are just as bad should they have the same level of restrictions on them as normal cigs?

      They’d have to try hard to be anywhere near as bad.

      Mind you I do wonder about harm – although not enough to do any actual research into it – I don’t know how many of the vast range of flavouring molecules used have been tested for safety when inhaling in quantities relevant to vaping. The flavour molecules are normally restricted to food stuffs for eating. Clearly the lungs and the stomach are very different organs. Certainly when you walk past someone huffing down their nicotinated cherry vanilla steam it reeks far worse than any flavour laden yogurt etc.

      @garygary I totally agree. After a long time with thought but no action I recently changed my way of life to stop eating meat unless I’ve caught/killed it myself.

      If I can choose the correct deer, and kill it quickly while it’s grazing totally free, I’ll take that any time over a supermarket steak. The process of shooting, butchering and freezing really drives home what you’re eating.

      The great irony is that I am a target for the general public as a person in the countryside with a gun. They dont stop to think I do it because I hate the suffering factory farming inflicts both to the eaten animal as well as wild species (foxes, badgers etc) … Personally i think if you can’t kill it yourself then you shouldnt be eating it.

      BUT Culture, upbringing, environment, all have a massive impact on a peoples characteristics. Spartans, Zulus, Maoris, Gurkhas; history throws up countless examples of nations who proved especially tough and resilient.

      Given the speed of cultural changes in the West over recent decades, it’s reasonable to expect demographic differences.

      Yep. I nearly got lynched last Sunday when I tried to throw a rotten (in my opinion and that of the flies) pear away from a 1920s woman that I was visiting. ‘ you’re just a wastrel’ is still ringing in my ears.

      online roulette games, I’m convinced they’re rigged to weed out exactly this kind of thing

      @flyguy I don’t think the major ones are – they don’t have to be. If they have lots of people playing, they’re raking in the house edge anyway.

      Now this rabbit hole is getting deeper.

      After freedom of Information, the BBC has discovered that 916 cases were dropped because of disclosure.

      This begs the question, has anybody been wrongly convicted and sentenced because of disclosure issues?

      And if there are, which based on probability, there will be I’m guessing any compensation claims will eclipse any alleged savings made ‘year on year’ with reduced resources to collect evidence for trials.

      I’d want to know how many pages were left in a book, how long a film was or how many miles I’ve got to walk to get back to the car. Why not how many years I’ve got left?

      We all know that we’re going to die, knowing when would certainly concentrate the mind, help us focus on what is truly important and promote a sense of perspective.

      Wishing to remain in ignorance strikes me as pure squeamishness.

      Don’t walk around the house barefoot. Get some footwear with a springy heel like cushion walk heels. You want something that has a small heel albeit a small one. You can get gel heel inserts from a site called Nuovahealth that are really cheap but effective. You can also get these arch support Strutz from the same site that you can wear around the house without having to wear shoes messing up your carpet which work well too.

      If you can go to a sports injury clinic they might be able to fit you with some orthodontics (is that teeth or feet??). Walking without supportive footwear, i.e. these ballerina type shoes with no heel at all is what causes the problem in the first place as well as being overweight (if you are) as you are placing more strain on your heels. Also having low arches causes it.

      @flyguy You seem very certain. The UN itself is much less so. See section B, particularly

      ““Agreements providing for the return by States of persons who have entered their territory from another contracting State in an unlawful manner should be applied in respect of asylum seekers with due regard to their special situation”.

      @flyguy Why? I do not see the relevance of your link to what I have claimed.

      It states

      “…there is no provision in our Immigration Rules for someone abroad to be given permission to travel to the UK to seek asylum..”

      If they aren’t allowed to travel, that implies their only option for asylum is in the first country they get to. (at least under UK rules).

      All those wanting all the immigrants in remember there are limits to how many people can be taken in over a given time period without overehelming resources and without undermining social cohesion.

      I think that limit is an order of magnitude higher than what the UK does, but I don’t think it’s high enough – nor can it be – for what may be coming. The international community needs to act swiftly – and violently where necessary – to prevent a country disintegrating to the point where most people want to leave it otherwise it’s really going to get unpleasant.

      I had an aura once, and that was followed after about 1/2 hour, by a short period, maybe 5 minutes, if not being able to form words (speech or written). Terrifying.

      I get aural disturbance that I think is migraine-related, which is very annoying for a musician.

      Usually, I get one-eye headaches, but without the aura or the nausea.

      If its HBA1C then it sounds like they made a mistake. You cant have wildly uncontrolled diabetes then well controlled diabetes the next day. However a one off test could easily have been a one off. Id ask for another HBA1C now to check

      This is totally a resources issue.

      @cammy could one assume that this “resources issue” with the Police and the CPS is not confined to three high profile cases, where the accused were innocent, that highlighted this issue?

      Think the problem was that every other item in the range was being modelled by a young white child. Then suddenly this one was being modelled by a young black child.

      Probably totally innocent, but obviously it looks terrible for them.

      @sarah Remember he only got in because of gerrymandering and the quirks of the Electoral college.

      Interestingly talking to some American conservatives I know this morning they have really started to change their views.. their defense was basically ‘I never liked him but he’s not Hillary”.

      Arguing for a competency based immigration system is a valid argument but this is just simply indefensible.

      Personally I think we can do both. I came over on the fiance visa system, the way people who have gone through that process, sometimes for a year or two and then to be denied due to their race is inhumane. Huge life changes have been forced on people purely because of their race. This US is looking disgraceful but its far from the majority who hold these views.

      As Oprah said some people just have to die. There is still a generation who are largely racist. It was the same in the UK but has slowly decreased. We still get pockets of racism but there was widespread racism in the 1950’s and 60’s in the US and those people are still in society.

      Sherriff Joe is running for senate and is yet again saying he has proof Obama is a kenyan.

      Well, the Standard’s saying nearly 250,000 people demonstrated. Even if not as many as a quarter of a million, it’s still a pretty big number for a workday. However, that being said the standard is a crap newspaper ran George Osbourne newspaper and an unreliable source full of fake news.

      I’m not sure bleaches and antimicrobial cleaners do leave much of anything behind, the 99.99% claim is more to do with what’s provable than what’s probable. Sure, there probably are some extremophiles that can survive in bleach or other cleaning products but they’re not likely to be found in your kitchen or bog to begin with.

      @angrydude its not up to your priest to decide that people are not Christians just because they don’t want their country being taken over by mostly MUSLIM economics migrants! These migrants who see the uk as an easy target and want to rape our country both metaphorically and literally. Yes there are genuine refugees in the jungles that need help but the vast majority just want to take advantage of the uk.
