Re: A driving thread

Was between a Golf GTI and the Astra GTC 2.0 TDI, I opted for the GTC purely down to the fact I do 15k miles a year and I looked to be far more economical. 2 months in and I'm getting around 35-38 MPG. Was expecting far more. Could've gone for the bloody GTI after all! How o...

Re: What made you Lol Today?

Is the polymer that the new fivers made from not oil based? As in, petrochemical oil? Because once upon a time, that oil was animals too. Albeit zooplankton, but still - sea creatures.

Re: The food thread

+1 on HelloFresh. We get meaty boxes with usually at least one veggie meal in. Recipes are always really good, easy to make, and the quality of the meat they send is second to none. Probably accounts for most of the cost of the boxes.

Re: What pissed you off today

Sounds like you want a job in project management! A friend of mine (who at the time was a project manager) described the job as being very simple: ask people what they need to do to get the project done and then tell them to do it.
