You won't necessarily get an increased fine. A few years ago I got a red light offense in Vic (I'm from Qld). At the time I thought there...

There doesn't seem to be a clear consensus. Either way, we're not talking about $5k watches here, we're talking $100 watches that I cycle...

Personally, I just wind all my watches when I put my watch on in the morning. If they go flat then setting the time is trivial.

If it's just a spring pin then a steak knife works well - as the pins sits between the serrations. Steak knives are normally fairly blunt,...

When was the last time that happened? I've never been stopped. Iif I'm in a hurry I get a 600ml coke from the vending machine - because...

Petrol is generally more of a necessity than plastic drinking straws (exceptions exist).
22/10/2018 - 15:57
But if you buy them then they will buy more, so the manufacturer will make more.

Paper ones, if not waxed heavily, will act as a catalyst for the [de]carbonation of soft drinks. As you suck it through the straw it's like...

ITS: people who don't understand how active noise cancelling headphones work.

Why do you think so many parents give their kids Phenergan?
22/10/2018 - 11:58
Then how do meat drivers currently navigate them?
22/10/2018 - 11:54
Yes. I don't like Uber as a company, and I think some thought needs to be put into how to make sure the drivers receive a fair wage, but...

I always remember an exchange I had with a taxi driver about 15 years ago. I was walking home, right next to the main bus stop at UQ when a...

A good friend of mine is like that. He's single, has been an engineer for 30 years, and lives cheaply. He casually mentioned to me a while...

And this is why most lottery winners end up broke and unhappy. Having money does make you happier, up to the point where you're in the...

But no one in their right mind would choose older technology over newer. There's a reason why professional photographers spend (tens of)...

Yes, some people can take great photos with old cameras, but that doesn't mean that age means nothing. Taking technically good photographs...

> "Age" does not means anything in the world of cameras. What a useless statement. I guess it doesn't mean anything for computers, or cars,...

You obviously don't know much about them then. Those Cadisen watches use either a Seiko movement (from the Seiko 5 series) or a Miyota...

As long as you don't keep them in a sealed box I think they will keep ticking along. Just leave them on a shelf when you're not using them.

It's a 5 year old MFT camera. It's cheap, but for a reason. The clarity seems to turn to a hot mess once you get above ISO1600, so good...

There's a place for both. Automatics are interesting, ecodrives are accurate and reliable. I do wonder why they continue to use mineral...

Given that, technically, you have to be a qualified electrician to take the GPO off the wall, it's pretty hard to inspect it yourself.
18/10/2018 - 16:17
But that makes it easier, you can use the shoddy wiring to pull through the new wiring (assuming it's routed correctly).

They'll quote for $6900. No point in price anchoring.

Not sure about other states, but in Queensland I believe having no power falls under an emergency, and the landlord is expected to rectify...

Ecodrives are their own movement, they're quartz with a solar panel face, and a rechargeable battery.
18/10/2018 - 12:15
Ecodrives start at about $100, but you won't get a sapphire crystal for less than abtou $200. You can get the Q&Q watches for about $30;...

Any idea what movement the C1030 has? I like the look, but $50 for mineral glass and a Chinese movement isn't much of a bargain.
