When the page loads on my laptop it only shows as far as the Conversation Room so unless I think of it and scroll down I won't see the lit up head.
Over the summer I only managed to get as far as Dartmoor which was just a lot of grassy hills and horrible weather!
Well, oil balls, apple flaps, and non-alcoholic, peach flavoured, fizzy champagne replacement have been aquired, we're all set for new year's!
A happy and healthy 2019 to you!
In today's episode of 'Facebook is creepy to an extent I can barely even comprehend', I've had two posts appear in my feed today about dizraeli releasing a new album. I've had literally nothing to do with him outside of these forums, and I think the only interaction since I've had this FB account is that single post he made in the ct1m thread recently.
I was aware of that, but the extent of this example is insane. I've given my name before on here but my Fb account is in a slightly different name. There's a really circuitous route that's been taken to connect my Teflon Monkey account and my Facebook.
Glad to be off Faceblegh then...
On a different topic (and to attempt to give you other FB ads you don't want):
I went to the annual motorcycle convention, and got to test ride a NIU N GT:
An electric motorscooter with a top "speed" of a whopping 70 km/h! (40-45-ish MPH)
Personally, I think that top is a little too low for it to be used as a true motorcycle, but it'd be great as an urban runabout.
This particular make boasts a long range, due to it's state-of-the-art battery packs, which can be taken out to charge in your home or office, or connected to a charger while still in the scooter.
Even though I only got to ride it for two short laps, I really liked it.
The ride was a bit ferm on short bumps, but it was smooth otherwise, very stable in the corners due to the 10kg (22lbs) battery being underneath the running board, and quick and constant acceleration, because electric motors have ALL of their torque, ALL of the time.
I'm planning to test ride a 25km version (means: no helmet) soon to see whether it rides the same, and maybe buy it if circumstances allow.
