    Flashing At Traffic Lights Turn Them Green?

    if E=mc2 then wherever there is mass there is energy and wherever there is energy there is mass. Light has momentum it can never be at rest but theoretically if light is trapped in a box with perfect mirrors so the photons are continually reflected back and forth in both directions...

    Flashing At Traffic Lights Turn Them Green?

    <pedant mode> light does move. ;) But I agree the detectors would not pick it up.

    Flashing At Traffic Lights Turn Them Green?

    During the early nineties when I came back from living in the states I brought my Gul radar detector back with me. The thing was a bit over sensitive & it always went ballistic every time I approached traffic lights, temporary or fixed with a sensor box attached (middle or top), it did...

    Caught by a speedtrap! what would you do?

    Just harder to sell not impossible. If your buying a kit car or a specialist import then it will probably not bother you. But a normal UK car & most people think its had a chequered history and shy away without asking why its actually on a ‘Q’ plate. Quite a few years back my mate had a...

    Caught by a speedtrap! what would you do?

    It’s a number plate that starts with a "Q" instead of the age identifier. Means the car is of questionable age. Makes it a lot harder to sell

    Caught by a speedtrap! what would you do?

    I definitely agree with this. Also when your car goes for an MOT you would have to change back and then replace which kind of admits you know there was a problem with the plates. Ignorance is not a defence in court, a few years ago you could probably get away with it and given the benefit...

    UFC 66, any fans on the forum? (potential result spoiler within)

    Yep always watch UFC, Pride and K1 Last time they met I think Rampage has lost his edge and chuck has improved a lot since they last met. Chuck’s stance looks awful with his hands down by his side but it is very effective for him...

    Name the one option you wish you had..?

    The first thing I missed was cruise control I retrofitted that cheaper than the option cost. So I guess it has to be the sunroof my last Merc had one and I miss it now. :(

    Any Electricians/Plumbers out there?

    No they are protected. But legally you cannot buy a UK 3 pin plug without fuse protection built in and the maximum fuse you can buy to fit in this plug is 13 amps. The reason is we use a ring main circuit which is a complete loop of usually 2.5 mm² cable which is protected by a 30 A...

    Any Electricians/Plumbers out there?

    In the UK every appliance has a three pin plug with a fuse built in due to the the ring main principal in the US (where I assume your from) you don’t hence the confusion in the US you have individual breakers/fuses supplying each socket. The maximum rating of fuse in your washing...
