    Jip. Never will a family admit, 'Oh, we treated the dog like ****, and we are not surprised it bit us, were waiting for it.' No No. it is ALWAYS that the family treated it right, such a good doggie blah blah. Meanwhile the whip lies in plain sight, dog is frothing around the mouth and is fed 2...

    This is a sensitive issue for me, i had 2 pittbulls in my life, absolutely loved them to bits, great temperament with children, loving and absolutely goofballs. Can they have an offday, pain somewhere, being startled or what ever and bite you. absolutely. The same goes for poodle, pomeranian...

    'It’s hell to live like this' - life in Mitchells Plain, where residents fill potholes themselves

    But if the improvement and fixes cost R5 000 000, we know by know it will be inflated by corruption to R15 000 000. And we know the tax base only brings in R4 000 000. So what do you do? The bit of money that comes in cannot pay for everything. SO you prioritise. And those priorities should...

    The Mazda CX-3 Thread

    I had to choose between the cx-3 and a hyundai Kona 2.0. At the end of the day the Kona won me over. The cx-3 just too bland, even in that red of mazda., the cx-30 is better, but a bit low for me, i want a bit higher drive, road conditions and being a big lad. Cost wide the cx30 was a bit too...

    Scale modelling

    My tirpitz looked like that. that dazzle paint was a bastard, lot of taping and spraying involved. My bismarck looks like that too, only need to finish the funnel section. That darkened stern and bow, with the white behind it. The idea was that the darkened section would be invissible to the...

    Scale modelling

    My bismarck built is a bit stalled at the moment, but many enjoyable hours sitting hunched over the bench. The color schema and patterns really impressive, especially if you get the meaning behind it. There is a theory that with the bismarck having it's 'smallship' paint on, that the hood and...

    Girlfriend killer who was out on parole arrested again for allegedly murdering new partner

    I can only assume that the sentence was 20 - 25 years (life?) and after 8 years he received parole. I know it is not what they say here, but it sound logically a bit better than 8 years sentences, being on parole now. his full sentence would have been completed in 2017 already, so no more...

    A day in the life of a tow truck driver

    Hmm, and what about throwing diesel on the road to cause an accident? Or, turning the robot's head 90deg so that the red side see's a green light and drive through. With my dad in the flying squad these are to examples we have seen quite few times. Arrested the oak who turned the robot...

    Idler pulley price

    You're right sorry, misread your question. Yeah, they push the belt into a shape that gives the most contact with each wheel that needs to be driven. Aircon for example is a tight wheel to drive, need much contact as possible there. Only reason i can think of.

    'Colonialist mentality.' Fury over UK refusal to recognise vaccinations done in SA, India

    Given out corruption levels, i would be hesitant to accept a document stating someone from South Africa had his jabs. Can be fraudulently bought easily enough.

    Idler pulley price

    Keeping the belt tight so it does not wobble about and screetch. Also, as the belt ages it stetches ever so slighty. tensioner keeps it tight for those old belt. Lastly, as the revs climbs that belt has a bit of stretch in them, the tensioner will keep that at bay as well.
