Google robo-car suffers brain freeze after seeing hipster cyclist

"incompetence is not a problem that banning cleats could solve"

No, but enforcement of the Highway Code would.

As would plates, insurance, testing etc.

Prove you're not an incompetent lunatic all the time - just like drivers and motorcyclists have to before they get out on the road unsupervised.

The sooner they ban headphones on the road the better, nothing worse than the cyclist wobbling side to side infront of you completely unaware of everything except the ipod blaring in their ears.

I have spent 20 years in audit (not all financial) and nothing sets my bullshit detector screaming as much as the fudging behind the numbers used by the CAGCC camp.

Re: "...you could put a (small) nuke plant onboard.."

or a (big) one at the end of the track and also power the infrastruture at that end, along with the town that would spring up around it to service the infrastructure.

Or put a big plant at BOTH ends, connect both ends to the respective grids and use the tunnel as way of selling excess power during off peak periods each way. Then all we need is to run similar grid links through the Chunnel, connect UK to Ireland, Ireland to the States, and we have a nice conductive loop running round the planet, what could possibly go wrong....

Solar storm anyone?

I'm sure there is a simple solution to that - circuit breakers and solar weather forecasts etc.

Re: And how many people realise goldfish can easily live to 20+ years if looked after?

Only those who realise that a goldfish needs a LOT of space - we have 2 in a 150L tank - filthy buggers - goldfish need water changed more often than most other aquarium dwellers.

And the damn things keep destroying the plants, even if we feed them regularly.

However they do keep the snail population down :D

Nappybags are a good way to dispose of the tissues and condoms, allowing snuggling/snoring without either of you staggering to the bathroom afterwards for cleanup.

First to go to the loo in the morning bins the bag.
