My car failed the MOT today, one of the failures was emissions, the others were defective front tyres and a broken rear bracket that I only replaced last year. I have done the repairs and was told to change the fuel filter and give it a good booting up the motorway before taking it to the re-test, I have already put a can of Drive Clean in the fuel tank and have run half of that tank through in the past two days. In the meantime I'm getting pissed and the car can wait until tomorrow afternoon to go back to the test centre, I really need this drink after today's load of bollocks.

Good thing I still have four days MOT left on it or I would have been fucked for getting to places to get the parts.

Did a quick search on "Gnoo".......

Some odd stuff.

Korean Music
Art from the 1800's
and
A Welsh motor club?

A Gnoo is more like a Llama type of thing I think.

That'll be a gnu, which is a wildebeest to most peeps.

Good luck on the MOT front - those issues are minor though and shouldn't be too problematic. Cheaper than buying a new car after ramming a telegraph pole, anyway!

If I did that in the middle of Old Stein then at Least Brighton would have an interstin art feature for once.

Two extreme masses, one at origin and one at destination, should bring two points in spacetime closer together. Just step somewhere in between and get pinged from one point to another, well that seems sound in theory at least.
