Re: I.....am.......angry.

f***ing up a new, perfectly good tyre due to local councile negligence is something totally different and not to be expected. ...in Norway. Here in "the greatest country in the world", it happens all the time. :( Back when I used to live in the city, I would joke to friends that they should put up ...

Re: I.....am.......angry.

Ouch! If I did the conversion correctly that's about US$370... I've never paid more than about $150 for a tire. You definitely did the right thing though... performance of that mini-spare in snow might have been worse than the summer tire. It's also a little surprising/scary that the low-pressure w...

Re: I.....am.......angry.

It's also a little surprising/scary that the low-pressure warning didn't come on for 2 minutes even though pressure loss was probably almost instantaneous. My interpretation (might be wrong) is that the bang was a bump in the road that damaged the tyre, which finally burst two minutes later. And th...

I.....am.......angry.

Saturday, driving down town to pick up a copy of Car Magazine to kill time on the 10:00 o'clock ferry to Sweden, one needs to stock up on Akkevitt since the Yuletide will soon be upon us. Wife driving for once, then big BANG shakes the car. Two minutes later, Low Tyre Pressure alarm. Paid extra for ...

Re: Kidney Stones

When we burn pine it is with full airflow and reheat. Good procedure! Not a problem. Violation of fundamental CRM that it's important to monitor the chimney that the updraft is not too swift, hot or roaring. Also, cowboy, improvisational recklessness... Is your stove big, fancy, expensive and attra...

Re: Kidney Stones

I could be wrong, but it looks to be pine or some similar resinous wood. I always thought that was a recipe for a chimney fire due to rapid accumulation of incomplete combustion residues........ Please enlighten me..... Does Per have an FADEC stove? (50% sarcasm) Yes, she's called Margareth. 8-) Per

Re: Kidney Stones

I am informed that rumours that they can be dissolved with Akkevit are unfounded.
That may be true, but copious amounts of Akevitt makes the whole ordeal so much more fun.

I may have them. Discuss.
Not dangerous, normally, but very, very painful.

They should use manly diesel engines instead of those girlie hair blowers.

Indeed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnOSRCuZBkY
Those are high reving girlie engines operated by girlie girls.
A real man's engine maxes out at 125 rpm, a bit higher for generators.
