1. Our politics:
2. Note the ever-so-careful, multi-covering diversity wording:
Hultgreen Curie Award candidate.
3. There’s gratitude for you:
4. I don’t like the look of her, don’t like the sound of her, wondering why she is a presenter, she’s not British and is appallingly ignorant. Yes, it’s Nungamuncher:
BBC News: ‘Have you learnt nothing?’ Matt Taylor takes swipe at Naga Munchetty over remark
BBC BREAKFAST weather presenter Matt Taylor appeared to be exasperated by colleague Naga Munchetty on today’s show after she expressed doubt over one of his weather predictions that did in fact come true.
She’s been in way too many controversies and has no sense of Britishness, no sense at all. Classless. Why do the BBC employ such awful women?
Contained within that url is the word outbrain. Yes.
Now to get down to tin tacks on this – it is not her errors per se, no. Heavens, I have a friend who tries to make as many as I do but I still think the prize is mine for the most stupid error-maker in life. My errors are just … legendary. And stupid.
It’s not errors at issue here with Nungamuncha, Ok?
It is her smug nastiness, the same with Newman, same with Maitliss, same with Swinton – were they male, we’d call them Richard Craniums, total tossers. It is her thickasabrickedness she’s entirely unaware of, thinking in fact that she’s just the ant’s pants.
That is the issue. It’s the combined nastiness and idiocy running through her, far worse than Caroline Lucas who now says she wants to run the country, having helped run Brighton into the ground.
And there is one more thing – something separating my stupidity and nastiness compared to hers – at least I’m willing to learn from the intelligent and from experience, willing to listen to wisdom.
These clowns, including Mad Cow on MSNBC, are actually a real and present danger, not just to themselves but to all of us.
By the way, by way of balance, did you see ex PM Brown come out of retirement to lecture the country about being nice to one another? Sheesh! And Khan on slavery?
5. Meanwhile, Microdave brings us this:
Noting that mechanical throttles are generally preferred because “they provide both immediate and tactile feedback to the operator.”
Even the bloody Vauxhall Agila I inherited from mother has an electronic “Drive By Wire” throttle, i.e. NO direct connection with the engine. It’s unprogressive, and has developed a maddening “hesitancy” at part throttle openings.
This has been looked at twice by the local Bosch technician (one of the top 2 in the country), and he can’t point to anything definite, so rather than spend a fortune trying various replacement parts I just have to put up with it…
Yep, it seems utter loonery but they’re the times we’re in.
6. We may have had this one – here it is again:
7. This one was sent to me with the question – how can you instantly tell it’s a model brought in and not someone within the industry?
