cutting in reverse

Page 4 of 8  


If the clutch is in, why should it be in neutral? If I'm parked with it in 1st, I simply push in the clutch, start it, then drive off in 1st. Why would I want to change to neutral then back to 1st?

You're the one that gets upset when we don't snip quite enough for your liking. So PKB!

On one occasion I was going along the Kingsway (dual carriageway) in Dundee, which has many roundabouts. I had to stop at each one due to it being rush hour, and some drivers got rather annoyed at me starting it in 1st and jumping round the roundabout. The starter in that car seemed unnecessarily powerful for the size of engine and it took off rather quickly and unevenly.

Fellow I worked with cut off part of his grandson's foot with a mower.
When my son was small I would not let him out in the yard while I was mowing. Maybe I am over protective, but the way children run so fast they can get in the way in no time.

Perhaps more time should be spent teaching the kids not to be so bloody stupid.

Some believe that the world converting to the metric system would greatly simplify our measures. But look what would really happen to our old cliches:
A miss is as good as 1.6 kilometres.

It was a joke.
Anyway, we haven't change to SI. We still use both F and C for temperatures, although younger folk seem to prefer C. All our road signs are in miles and miles per hour. We measure a car's petrol consumption in miles per gallon, yet it's dispensed at the pump in litres!

There used to be quite a few hand and foot injuries before mowers required dead man switches. The only child I ever read about being a victim was a little kid who near a mower that kicked out a wire - think it was piece of coat hanger - and it penetrated his head, killing him. It usually won't make the news unless somebody is killed.

By all means sell mowers with those switches, etc, etc. IF the customer wants them, but never make safety mandatory.

snipped-for-privacy@comcast.net says...

There was a fellow at work that was between 50 and 60 years old that almost lost some fingers on a mower. He thought the blades on his riding mower may not be turning so like a dummy he stuck his hand it there to see if he could feel the blades turning. He was lucky the blades just nicked the ends of about 3 fingers and after a few weeks they healed.
I guess the dead man switch might have saved him if he had to get off the mower to check that out.

He wasn't worth saving. Protecting the stupid allows them to breed.

If it takes them 25 years to understand rotation, they aren't worth saving.
