  1. All well and good on smaller items, but when we think of it as buying a new car, buying from your local Nissan dealer even though he's charging 20% more than than another registered dealer 300 miles a way is surely madness? Similar numbers in the OP scenario i think...
  2. Buy local even if it means a massive cost implication? Never understood the attitude....
  3. I used to work for an incredibly straight laced, shave every day, kinda guy. One time a job had to be delayed due to the presence of a very large (and obviously quite amorous) shire type horse in the field where we were supposed to be installing some post a rail. Upon relaying the days events back at the yard. He made everyone choke on their brew by asking "how many hands was it?" Was the sheer surprise of it coming from him.
  4. As my other half is involved in this kind of stuff in a general kind of way, she often re-assures in slow soothing tones (using very simple words) that the average Joe has nothing to fear. They spend millions researching ways of monitoring people and finding ways to trap or con them. They are not likely to risk exposing their secrets by snooping on @Ty Korrigan's grinder history or whether or not you ordered an extra Naan with your korma. Mind you....i don't understand much of what she does, she could easily be in on the scam.....she is a bloody foreigner after all.
  5. prussic and a pulley on any bollard to pre tension
  6. Any job where the customers NEIGHBOR has a cat. Nothing quite like cat poo on a rope.

  8. Must be terrible to have money....
  9. Pretty much what you've outlined Also whether my new chainsawpants make my bum look big?
  10. Yea just look back a page or 2. Several posts incinutating that asking groundies opinions is a sign of incompetence.
  11. Seems to be a dislike for climbers communicating with the ground guy. I'm always asking my groundies opinion, doesn't mean I'm incompetent or incapable. It's a different viewpoint and a second opinion
  12. Go on then, what's the attraction?
  13. I had a similar experience, although I have the advantage that ALL of my first attempts at plastering fell off the walls in great big plaques. The evidence has been destroyed!
