    This one was a rope that had been left in a tree for 19 years...

    I've got the portable metal cutting bamdsaw, if that's the one you mean, but from Aldi, not Lidl. Haven't used it yet, apart from testing that it works, and it does.

    What to do with a broken 346xp?

    Cheap fix and keep it as a stumper and for really dirty jobs, and as a loaner.

    Margaret Thatcher.

    Just out of interest, what is the result of the poll so far? (Never lived in UK so have no opinion)

    Yes, that's the one! It's in generic fly spray. It doesn't harm synthetic fabrics. Feet is not really effective against ticks I've read, but works well against midges and mosquitos. Deet is evil stuff. I bought some 96% stuff which is illegal in some countries. Used it to remove some graffiti from a utilities kiosk, and will never again use it on my skin. They recommend not touching your polycarbonate spectacle lenses if it's on your hands, as it melts the plastic and leaves a permanent finger print. For midges I've been using Autan Tropical, which is 20% Icaridine, which is a synthetic pepper, or something. I looked into it and seems much less toxic than Deet, and doesn't affect plastics or fabrics. Works as well as Deet, for me.
  10. It will be twice as slow but half as hard.

    Climate change anyone?

    Is it false though? You are not reading the message because you don't like the messenger. It's data - the IPCC have backpedelled. It's true, it's there in black and white.

    https://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/01/01/ipcc-silently-slashes-its-global-warming-predictions-in-the-ar5-final-draft/ The IPCC have actually admitted that their models have been wrong. (going beddie byes now)

    Ok, but we cant reduce the temperature without going carbon zero, and crashing our economies. The only way to avoid mass starvation in a global economic collapse would be global communism = more suffering. Either way, you can't avoid the suffering. Thats assuming your climate model prediction are correct. If they are incorrect, then you would be trading the most abundant and free period in human history for global communism - "just in case" The third option is let all the peoples of the world experience economic freedom in their lifetime in the 21st century, and let the chips fall where they may. If climate catastrophe happens, then we work and build our way out of it with hive cities, floating cities, whatever. If it doesn't happen, then we embark on the golden age. If its a bit of both, then we just roll with the punches, like we've always done. If someone can figure out a practical way to sequester CO2 that doesn't cost three times the GDP of Earth, then I'm all for it, why not? It's not like future generations can't produce all the CO2 the earth needs by vaporising limestone with solar energy as and when the atmosphere needs a top-up.

    Oh come on now, that's like something a politician would say. Give me some specific solutions - and solutions that don't just shift the suffering onto someone else, like wealth distribution.
