  1. If nothing else it might provide some amusement on the forecourt watching the staff lugging around all the batteries. Hard to imagine that they weigh over 0.5 metric tonne.
  2. I was toying with the idea of getting an EV, but I'm waiting for the prices to drop. The faster chargers can draw quite a heavy current (possibly >30A for a single phase supply) so it really needs a dedicated supply. There used to be a grant of up to £500 available to have a charging point installed, though I gave no idea whether you can still get these.
  3. Has anyone played Greedfall yet? I've been looking at since it seems a bit like The Witcher in style, but it's a bit pricier than I would normally consider paying for a studio/developer that I'm not familiar with.
  4. I think when I first started doing it, Matchbook had a similar offer of 0% for something like 6 months. Fundamentally though, after an introductory period there will eventually be some form of commission or they couldn't exist, and unlike the bookies it's why the exchanges don't really care if you are matched betting since they make their money irrespective of whether you win or lose (though I believe Matchbook now only charges commission on winning bets). Back when I was doing it, I found Smarkets had a slightly bigger market than Matchbook, but I preferred navigating the Matchbook site.
  5. There is also Matchbook at 2%. I tried it for a short time, but don't really have the time to put into it (or perhaps more accurately I don't feel much inclined to make the time for it as I find the process somewhat of a chore). A lot of bookies nowadays have statisticians/AI systems scrutinizing betting behaviour. It doesn't take much to end up on their blacklist, and then you'll find all the 'special offers' dry up - whilst it's possible to still make money without these preferential offers, it becomes a lot more difficult.
  6. I bought one of those Samsung ecobubble machines a while ago and all I can say is it was one of the most problematic machines I have ever owned (maybe Samsung should stick to the televisions). I've got a Zanussi now, and while they are generally regarded as being one of the cheaper brands, I've not had any problem with it. I tend to get a lot of my larger appliances from AO - good service, but I hate the hard sell on pointless insurance cover.
  7. Just an extension and intensification of the cynical ploy behind the last rise in the pension age. They know full well that the longer people are pushed into working, the sooner they will die and they won't end up having to pay out at all. Not dissimilar from the 'carousel' of Logan's Run - except in Logan's Run at least people have forty enjoyable years before they were terminated.
  8. I just remember a coldness spreading up my arm and being asked to count to ten, then I don't remember anything. I think they wake you up after the op to make sure you're OK, but to be honest I don't even remember that.
  9. Despite the claims that Verstappen has improved in terms of maturity, I was somewhat expecting something disastrous to happen in trying to overtake him. Still, kudos to Honda in getting their engine working in the Red Bull so quickly (even with their experience with Torro Rosso). I wasn't expecting them to be anywhere this season.
  10. The light hadn't even turned green when he floored the accelerator. Absolutely in the wrong.
  11. Breaking away from the football dominance, personally I would say Hagler getting robbed by Sugar Ray Robinson Leonard *So completely unforgettable that I forgot the opponents name
  12. The accidents have got little to do with not being capable of driving at night (or any other time for that matter), but are more likely due to driving like Johnny Bigballs to impress the collection of other dickheads in the car.
  13. I was browsing around components a few weeks ago and was quite surprised at how much SSD prices have plummeted. It wasn't that long ago when I built my last PC and even low capacity solid state drives were stupidly expensive.
  14. I ended up rage quitting a few weeks back - there's not been a great deal on it that's particularly interested me for a while, but then I saw something coming up on Discovery that I wanted to watch (which is especially unusual since Discovery seems to be 99% crap these days) - so I put the box on to watch it, and all I got was a message saying that I don't have the rights to watch it. I later found out that it was one of those programmes you can't watch live, but can get it later on catch up. Anyway, I'll stick with my decision to quit it for a bit and maybe let a few things build up that are worth watching. I'm debating quitting my cinema pass on there as well, since there doesn't seem to a massive amount appearing that interests me.
  15. Big-ass cars, vans and lorries turning right at junctions and completely obscuring the view for anybody turning left
