  1. I only really listen to Talking Heads and the audio levels are the same on that - quieter than normal when Stu is talking but then when the adverts come on loud as hell. The worst one is when they connect down to the airport to the Scottish weatherman. With his accent and the terrible audio you can't understand a bloody word of it.

    TT 2018

    What controls are they then?
  3. Ah, a video of the typical TT visitor who will overtake you as you’re sticking to the 50 limit going up to the Gooseneck and then wobble around holding you up the rest of the way over the mountain.
  4. My theory is Jackson’s is to be the MOT testing centre. It just hasn’t been made public yet.
  5. Did you know...in the Isle of Man a motorcyclist does not have to wear a helmet if they are of the Sikh religion and are wearing a turban. True story.
  6. I don’t understand what people’s problem with this is. You drive up, press a button, take your ticket and the barrier lets you in. On the way out if both cameras read your number plate correctly it opens automatically to let you out. If it doesn’t open, put your ticket under the laser and it opens. What’s hard about that? I’ve been through hundreds a of times and never had a problem, although I did see the barrier come down on someone’s car once but that was their own fault for stopping under it.
  7. 9 times out of 10 when someone tailgates you it’s a woman.
  8. If you’re gonna speed at least be smart enough to look out for someone down the road stood wearing a bright green jacket probably next to a brightly coloured car.
  9. http://www.iomtoday.co.im still works but the others don’t.
  10. If the toilet tax gets any higher I might start using dog poo bags.
  11. What am I’m going to bag my rubbish up with now? Do I pay for carrier bags or buy bin liners instead?
  12. All caused by crap traffic light sequences. Where is Matt these days anyway?
  13. If you give someone the authority to close the road they will probably close it at their first opportunity to make themselves feel more important. It’s human nature.
  14. The UK is at risk of running out of gas in certain areas over the next few days according to the scary media. Hopefully our gas pipeline to Pully power station won’t get switched off.
  15. Most people buy a scratch card and take it home to see what they’ve won. I just ask the checkout person to scan it before I leave the checkout.
  16. Windy and Brandish don’t flood. Ever.
  17. I generally ignore Road closed signs because they’re usually only there because nobody from the DOI has been assed to remove them yet.

    Xmas lights

    Outdoor LED lights are old school this year. Laser is where it’s at now.
  19. Why do the amenity sites show their closing times (usually) as 16:30 but then underneath it says ‘gates close 15 minutes before closing time’? Why not just say closing time is 16:15?
  20. It looks as though the Isle of Man Government Senior Manager for baked potatoes successfully retired from their 80K position through the MARS scheme last week according to this news report. http://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/potato-ban-perplexes-parents/
  21. How much money could you typically get for scrapping a car these days?
  22. I saw some giant Cadbury’s Whole Nuts in there on Monday which I wouldn’t mind getting on the cheap.
