I discovered yesterday that a co-worker was being a clipe during lockdown last year when we were on furlough and a redundancy process was going on. On the phone regularly to senior management giving opinions on who should be made redundant and making recommendations that some roles could be made part time, and of course bigging up his own position. This behaviour also included telling them there was a WhatsApp group and reporting on what was being said in it. Luckily for him he’s since left for another job or I’d be having a word with him. All the while lying to the rest of us and pretending he was “ one of the lads”. Utterly disgusting behaviour and the sign of a total self centred *****. 

 

What a dick.

 

By 'having a word with' I hope you mean 'boot in the stanes'.

Folk who go looking for fights in a 5-a-side match. Unless someone has tried to properly injure you, you need to understand that a wee bit of physicality is part of football. To see guys in their 40s squaring up or looking for a fight because of a bad pass or a hard challenge is fecking pathetic.

Talking about seethe I see cancel Janey Godley is trending on Twitter. 
 

:sweeet:

 

I ****ing hate that advert. Whoever, thought that was a good idea should be fired immediately. That person is genuinely in a job they should not be doing.

 

Couldn’t stand her brand of comedy in the first place but now to have her screeching tones preaching with the eloquence of mentally challenged junkie, does not please me.

Bought a multipack of wispa gold's that turned out to be original wispas. :jjockio:

 

This made me laugh. I'm not really a 'seether' but something silly like this would have me going. Its the unimportance of it whilst still be so annoying and wondering how it could happen 😂😂 

 

 

I'm assuming it was normal wispas in the wrong pack and you didn't just pick up the wrong pack?

In the wrong pack aye. Even the individual ones were wrapped as Golds. Gave myself hope that it would just be one.... Or two... Maybe three... But no. So it was also a build up of seethe over a few days 🤣 

 

Sent the wife out to get me a proper one though which I enjoyed a few days later so all's well that ends well!

You should send in a complaint to the manufacturer, they’ll maybe send you a big box of freebies as an apology 😀

Thanks to this thread I now have to go to Tesco and buy some wispas!

 

Same when I read about food and drinks in novels, often end up craving whatever is being written about.

There’s a long description in The Pigeon by Patrick Suskind if the main character sitting in a park eating his lunch of fresh bread and sardines in oil that does that. And I don’t even like sardines but it’s so beautifully written.

I, for one, enjoy having a hole burned in my retina every time I pass one of those cars. Makes the rest of my journey less predictable.

She is as funny as piles ! Uses vulgarity and crude language in her “jokes “ . She’s been quite rightly shot down on Twitter due to previous tweets of a offensive nature . She’s just offensive , tacky and worse of all deeply unfunny

I was coming back into Edinburgh last night from the Queensferry crossing, going downhill towards Miller & Carter at Crammond Brig, the VW Toureg behind me had them and I couldn't see anything other than blinding white light in both me rear view and drivers side mirror's, I get that bright lights are good but they need to be directed much lower to the road on these SUV's, it's like VW have taken the lights out of a hatchback and just stuck them into the SUV without noticing that the SUV is 2 foot higher from the ground

LED is nowhere near as directional as conventional light sources we're used to as it's the lens that does the work of controlling and shaping the beam, as opposed to old school lights where it was the reflector. Basically the technology isn't quite there yet but the car makers are doing it anyway.

Does that mean they aren't adjustable? Like my older car has a dial to change the direction based on how many people in the car/load etc

They will be able to adjust the LED "bulb" itself but the natural characteristic of a single source LED is you can make a narrow aimed beam but there is a lot of flare around it as well. As an example I've got a pretty top end front light on my bike, when I'm on the cycle path at night I can point to so it's lighting the path in front of me for quite a distance but it will also light the trees either side of the path at about a quarter of the brightness of the tight spot area. Great if I'm on a country road late at night but not so good if anyone comes towards you. To such an extent decent bike lights have a function to quickly cut the power right back so you don't dazzle people. The LED lights I use in my job to light a stage are a lot better but I don't think people would be too happy at paying hundreds of pounds to replace a light if it went.

Izzat why, if you look away a little from a set of these modern headlights, you kind of see a blue halo just off centre? Sometimes think its an emergency services vehicle when seen from a distance. Or are my eyes just not fit for driving?

 A lot of the blueish ones are discharge lamps or early LEDs. All lights have different colour temperatures, measured in Kelvin. Basically the higher the colour temperature the colder a white you get, so halogen lights are around 3000k, daylight simulation bulbs are round 6500k and have a blue tinge. Thats why when LED and compact fluorescent lights for the home first appeared a lot of the time they were very harsh or cold looking as they were still working on getting them to look like the tungsten bulbs we were used to. A colder light is more effective at lighting things but less pleasant to our eyes. So when you are buying bulbs for the house the packaging will have. description like warm white or cool white on the packaging alongside the K number.  Lower temperature lights for areas like a living room where you want to relax, higher for real like. kitchen or an office where you want bright clear light.

Christ, my job means I have the most interesting facts.

She's a thoroughly unpleasant person too, in particular her behaviour on social media is particularly abhorrent. She likes to lead pile ons of people who either disagree with her or admit to not being that enamoured with her brand of "comedy". That, coupled with her attitude towards those with a disability, shows her true colours.

I've got full LED's in my Skoda Kodiaq and they're awesome. They automatically adjust and also vary depending on your speed. I wouldn't accept them if they were lower on the road as they wouldn't be sufficient for driving with then. I've only been flashed once in 4 years by a clown that thought I had the full beam on and that was because we were facing at an angle on a hill that made it look like that. He also blinded me but I wasn't daft enough to think he had his blinders on.

That's the problem, though. Unless you live on the plains of Iowa or whatever, undulating roads and cars with different ride heights are going to mean you are blinding people unintentionally. Not a dig at you, but the designers of such lights (and those who approve/authorise the designs) prove that selfishness on the road trumps everyone just getting where they need to get to safely.

You're not understanding. His ordinary Victorian era headlights also blinded me. He was only blinded by the angle, as was I. Nothing to do with any LED's.

I do understand. There are some occasions where this is inevitable and unavoidable. The Craiglockhart/Glenlockart junction in Edinburgh is particularly 'fun' for this. 

 

My point was that, more generally, LED headlights (or perhaps their positioning) can often cause vision issues for those who have someone coming towards them with them on even a normal setting (or driving behind them). It's a widely-held view: https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/news/motoring-news/new-car-headlights-present-unwanted-safety-risk-to-drivers/

My Toyota has an anti-glare rear-view mirror. Brilliant.

 

Fitting one over the entire windscreen may have adverse effects on my vision beyond the odd bit of glare as a I pass a Kodiaq 😜

My wife's preferred driving style, judging by the fact she seems to hit trees and bollards every time she gets behind the wheel. Now there's a seethe for this thread. If you have a reversing camera and you still manage to reverse into a tree, shouldn't you just have your licence revoked there and then?

I partially agree. My mother-in-law took down part of her garden wall with a hammer because she kept scraping the car along it. She doesn't understand that the wall was never moving and wasn't to blame. If you can't get out the driveway you've lived with for 50+ years you should just be throwing your keys in the hedge.

Where to start today in a city the charlatans at the CeC (main culprits McVey and McInnes) call a 7 day city!

 

Sunday lunchtime KO - horrendous for trying to use public transport unless you leave so early you could fit in breakfast.

 

Arriving at Tynecastle and attempt to enter the Wheatfield via the Gorgie Road end; something I have done very often and did for the Aberdeen game only to be told you can't  despite there being next to no one using the left hand set of turnstiles. So then I go to the Weheatfield entrance where the queue is doubled back from the bowling green corner!

 

After the game I decide to walk to Morrison St rather than get a bus and just as well I did. I'm in my 70s and not a fast walker but not one bus passed me on my 25 minute stroll - does anyone remember the days they used to put on extra buses on match days?

 

Had a couple of beer sin Thomson's and at 15:45 asked the barman to call me a taxi which he did. Stood waiting for 20 minutes until I gave up and walked to Lothian Road to get a 24 bus. Only stroke of luck today I got a 24 right away and eventually got home.

It's a seven-day city if you're a tourist looking for a cappuccino on George Street. Otherwise, they're not interested.

 

Sounds like we live in roughly similar parts of the city, so PM if you ever need a lift to/from a game, especially with the stupid KO times Sky force on us.
