  1. @woolley Be careful, you're so far over you might fall off the right wing!
  2. Wow! What a way to Marshall your argument.
  3. “Honestly, the closest I can think of Planet Woolley, as well made as it is, with words and sentences doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks. It isn’t the discussion of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”
  4. Planet Woolley sounds like really horrible place. I'm glad its only an unrealistic fiction.
  5. That would be one hell of a by-pass!
  6. Gotta have that Big Star Energy!
  7. In the way it undermines your troll, obs.
  8. Actually it's not a trial at all. It's an investigation.
  9. Commercial road vehicles are currently subject to regular inspection so the situation in that sense is consistent with aircraft inspection. Aircraft regulation is a bit more complex in general, in that individual aircraft have to be shown, at inception and regularly thereafter, that they confirm to the aircraft model's certified Type Design, I.e, no trick exhausts, go-faster stripes or high-lift cams. Also, a significant portion of the certificate renewal process is about demonstrating through logs that the regular and preventative maintenance dictated under the Type Approval certificate have been carried out. I understand that the annual renewal process can be extended to up to 3 years if the aircraft is maintained by an independent (to the operator) certificated maintenance organisation. The aircraft regulation framework has been worked on over the last 100 years to get to a situation where one in every 3/4 million flights results in a fatality. It covers not only aircraft certification, but also pilot certification. Maybe the question to be drawn from the air regulatory framework is not the one you posed, but rather why isn't there a requirement for regular driver recertification when driver error is by far the largest contributing cause to serious incidents?
  10. Hmmm...have those chariots in the mid-distance been tested...?
  11. Now you've blown it, posting those default email responses. It was good* while it lasted, Rog! *It was not good
  12. Much better. Personal anecdotes that can't be verified. Perfect.
  13. Aye. But MF is not the place to look for freshness in political satire. "6 chinese banks", as a random example.
  14. The problem when trolling on a subject you don't actually know much about is that when you get verbose you start to expose your lack of knowledge and logical flaws in your argument. If I were you, I'd keep it to short, provocative posts.
  15. The convention in the Highway Code is that "must" means it is linked to a specific piece of law, whereas "should" is advisory, e.g.
  16. And that's not bloody surprising man!
