Mark:I've run that through my brain a few times and I can't quite understand what you are trying to say .. are we not allowed to see car tyres touching the floor ?

 

Oh ... is it "tyres" or "tires" in NZ ? :-)

 

 

 

 

Either works. I always leave enough gap so I can pull into an adjacent lane if the car infront dies or whatever. Has happened a few times and not having enough space to just move lane is the worst.

People who get their children to order when going through drive thru followed by parents who haven't decided what to get their kid when going thru drive thru because they mistakenly believe that a 4 year old can make up their mind without getting confused.

floydbloke: When you're on a slowish internet connection at work and you end up clicking on the wrong link because it takes that half a second longer for a banner ad to appear in the middle of the screen.  (I'm looking at you Geekzone wink)

 

 

 

And then you get a never-ending stream of targeted ads for erotic Chinese underwear.

Come on manufacturers, how difficult can it be?

People that ask a question and expect everyone else to run around and do their research from them instead of spending 5 mins on Google. This happens on GZ a lot!

 

 

 

* Whats the best TV

 

* Whats the best credit card

 

* Who provides the best insurance

in fairness to some of these queries, people are asking others for real-life, local, first-hand experiences.

 

Google may well be our friend, but it returns oodles of links to outdated, irrelevant and sometimes utter cr*p and lying articles.

Yes but to be fair real life experiences are often very different to the reviews and Google "Ad" sites. Example if one were to research Apple product X and came across

 

The Verge or iMore you would get the impression that Apple products were from the Gods and without fault.

No! No it doesn't! Tyres on a car are spelled with a 'y', becoming sleepy is spelled with an 'i'.

 

Which is why driving in Auckland with all the little yellow Drury Tires stickers in car windows drives me nuts.

 

 

 

ETA: its small, it annoys me, its on topic :-)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tire

 

A tire (American English) or tyre (British English)[1] is a ring-shaped vehicle component that covers the wheel's rim to protect it and enable better vehicle performance.

I don't like that there isn't a youtube insert button on GZ.  There's one for URL links and one for pictures, but not for youtube...

Yeah, why must people drive home this point about Drury being sleepy?

Or why someone with 55 jail terms from a 15-page rap sheet isn't just locked up for good.
