  • Once driving in rush hour around Amsterdam, I saw a woman with her phone in a cradle on top of the dash watching a Netflix show while on the motorway... Some people really should get their licenses revoked.

  • Ethan wtf! That is the worst attitude I've ever heard... A garage is specifically designed to put your freakin car in, not some shit stuff that is specifically predestined for a damn shed! So many people park their cars on the road even though they have a garage but that is then full of crap. Also, a garage acts as protection for your car. I could rant about this for hours

  • If you were in the Volkswagen factory, the car becomes a car as soon as an order is placed on the first part to join the assembly line, I think it's the floor pan that they then weld the sides and firewall to, because that's when they apply the tags to track the progress of certain cars around the factory in order to do all the just in time ordering of parts for the rest of assembly. For me it's the shell. It doesn't need to have doors, windows, or subframes for engine etc for me to call it a car. If there's a recognisable outline from at least 2 angles of the car it is to become It's a car to me. By that point it is committed to becoming a car and not a shelving unit or something in my opinion. A floor pan by itself is a part to be added to a car, you can replace a full floor pan in a completed car, but the shell is the point where 3 or more substantial panels have been joined to resemble the car. For body-on-frame cars it's a bit more difficult. The shell isn't itself a car in that case in my opinion, it needs a chassis to have suspension, wheels, engine, etc to be added to make it a car, but you can also have a rolling chassis that is fully kitted out with drivetrain components that makes that a car without a body shell mounted. If it's unibody, it needs to look like the body of the car it's to become, if it's body-on-frame then frame/chassis + body shell or frame/chassis + drivetrain components, 'rolling chassis'.

  • I think I've overthought the sand thing. You will distort the heap each time you remove a grain, and if you always take off the top you will eventually flatten the heap until it's no longer a heap but say 1000 grains spread across a table. At some point in between you will squash the heap when removing a grain to where it will no longer be a heap, say when the height falls below 50% of it's diameter/average diameter at its base while also being below a boundary between an inconceivable number of grains and a somewhat conceivable number of grains, all within context. A heap of sand in a quarry would need to be vastly larger than sand heaped on a teaspoon. Basically I think there is a point where removing a single grain of sand is the defining moment when the heap is no longer a heap, but more dependant on when the person removing the grains squashes the heap, and if you have several people watching they will each have a different grain in mind that made that difference from heap to not a heap.

  • If it's cars in a car park then 3-5 cars is a few, 6-11 is several, 12-21 is a good few, 21-35/45 is a brave ween, although it doesn't really have much of a upper limit until the car park is packed. Norn Iron (Northern Ireland) lingo is probably a bit different to England. You see 30 cars in a 90 space car park 'There's a brave ween o' motors in thon car park'. :)

  • I've reported a few can drivers to their bosses. Two were sacked the same day, one of them a week before Christmas - he narrowly missed wiping out a school bus whilst on his phone. Another guy who gave me the finger when I shouted at him to get off his phone, spent 3 days on a re-training course. I'd urge anyone to get and company names if possible. It isn't grassing up - some of these drivers do 50k+ miles a year.

  • As far as I'm aware vRS when it was introduced on the Mk1 Octavia was actually only RS. They're registered as Octavia RS turbos. The 'v' (lowercase) represents the chevron above the Š in Škoda when written properly. Recently however Škoda has decided the 'v' now represents 'victory'. The RS of course does stand for Rally Sport and Škoda did take the Octavia Mk1 rallying, even making a limited run of 100 'WRC edition' cars, with the livery and white rims, to be sold to the general public.

  • There are different kinds of delivery drivers. The ones you're referring to, the likes of DPD, Yodel, Amazon, Hermes etc are all multi-drop drivers and they have to deliver x amount of parcels a day within a certain time frame and are constantly against the clock, hence rushing around, plus for the majority, the vans are not their own. Others (where I fall in) are Same Day owner drivers, where we buy and run our own van and collect from point A delivering to point B whether local or distance across the country. We all get tarnished with the same brush which to be honest isnt right and hope this clears it up a little...

  • I drive for a big company and am contracted as employee. Dpd on other hand is self employed, I could be wrong but I think they just pass checks and get let on the road where as my company does training, has strict policies. assessments, speed limiters and speed tracking devices. I wouldn't say all are bad but companies that take on self employed people are to blame. Them jobs are disposable and that's how they are treated especially during lockdown when the need for drivers went up and anyone with a licence thought fuck it I'll do this for a quick buck.

  • Yes, some delivery drivers are awful; what I will say is having worked for a large online retailer in delivery. They constantly ride your dick to hurry up. Give you far too many drops than are actually possible. I now work for a decent company driving and witnessing some people’s ability (or the lack of) is so concerning.

  • I drive for Amazon and can say our drops have sky rocketed since March last year and we are in the middle of a battle with them to lower the amount we are expected to do in a day. Every driver I know doesn’t wear there seat belt or even turn the engine off at stops because we simply don’t have time. Hoping we get a victory soon so everyone can drive slower and actually take breaks. The bbc did a programme about this a couple weeks ago. We are not bad drivers just over worked and exhausted 🙃

  • this channel is crashing and burning, these talk videos are lowering your views for your bigger videos, doesn't anyone working at this company notice that or is this just a bunch of amateurs working together? Your channel views have been declining majorly since last year, around the time you started adding these type of videos, don't see the correlation lol. I run a channel with over 1 billion views for reference (not on this account obviously). Whoever is the main person in charge of ideas and running this channel needs to be replaced or sell it to another more qualified company

  • Parcel Delivery drivers are definitely the worst, especially DPD drivers. Was going to work with my cousin/boss driving up to Caffeine and Machine and this dick in a DPD local pulled out of C&M's front car park, fortunately my cousin could swerve as there was no oncoming traffic. He pulled over but resisted putting an axe through his aheadlights, but still got out and gave the bird, quite incredible the front end of my cousin's pick up ain't buried in the side of this DPD van. Released a few days later he's now our new DPD delivery guy and has delivered to my cousins house multiple times. 🤣🤣👍 The next close call with a DPD van was a few days ago when my dad was driving in town probably pushing 30mph and this DPD van reverses straight out of a junction. My Dad swerved around him while leaning on the horn, then the guy tailgated us cuz it was obviously our fault he reversed out of a junction on to a main road... Yeah DPD drivers are definitely the worst!! 🤬🤬🤣🤣👌

  • I rattle canned my Racing Beat front nose for my NA this past weekend as well (also silver) and it turned out great like yours, Jack. 2 cans of white self-etching primer, 3 cans of 3L Stone Silver paint from Paints4U, a very light sanding and a further can of 3L Stone Silver paint and finally 4 cans of clear coat and it's turned out brilliant. The colour match is spot on. Always a satisfying job when it turns out nicely.

  • 6 points and £200 currently. I've been a delivery driver for 16 years and have never used my phone on the open road. Tried using it on private land out of curiosity and I can see no way anyone can safely control a vehicle this way, even conversation with a passenger is distracting. I've trained as a driving instructor and have 26 years of experience, mostly good. Waiting to have a conversation won't kill anyone.
