I had an RC Sir Killalot as a kiddy, but we were too poor to buy the weird batteries it needed and the house was tiny anyway.

They do - you can buy particularly good all-metal RC cars, with gearboxes and all sorts on BangGood for less than fifty quid, shipped from China/Slough. If you like RC stuff, particularly cars, planes or drones, Banggood is good shit.

I've always really admired custom-built super-size RC jet airplanes.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOewW2_esBM

That takes some proper skill and dedication to your hobby. I saw a documentary on TV once about people like that. Because you cannot (or choose not to) build your plane from a kit, you have to get in touch with the airplane manufacturer and hope that they will kindly supply you data like dimensions and measurements so that your model plane is faithful to the original. If you want your plane to carry livery of a real-life commercial airline, it's best to contact them as well, if just to prevent copyright infringement hassles due to you using their logos and what-have-you. And then it still often takes weeks or months of obtaining special permits to be allowed to take your own photos of the real thing at an airport so you can adjust all the tiny little details of your model. All in all, that's why those planes like the one in the video can cost in excess of £25,000 to build. And that's not even counting the fact that without any formal mechanical training, you will be out of your depth at almost every turn.

So yeah, that's a hobby that has always fascinated me, but for which I will probably never possess the required level of mechanical skill, or just simply the money to build a plane like that.

I think you might enjoy Mark Evans' series A Plane is Born. He builds a light aircraft from a kit and learns to fly it. When he finally gets to take his first solo flight in the aircraft he built, it's really rather moving.

Hobbyking are also excellent for RC stuff. The prices aren't always as keen as Banggood, but they specialise in RC and have a much wider range.

Modern brushless/lipo vehicles are brutally powerful; the top end of the hobby goes well beyond the toy adverts and seems to defy the laws of physics.

My dad quite seriously injured himself many years ago and spent a long time in hospital. His own wounds were quite bad, but the fellow in the bed opposite had been doing something with his microlight when the engine started, with his arms still very much in the way. He still had both his arms by the time it was over, but they were about as much use as those chains moshers used to wear on their trousers.

The premiums shoot up only if you undertake 'hazardous pursuits' before taking out cover. If you have cover already in place and the premiums are guaranteed then you're golden.

You're also more likely to die during pregnancy if you create a pipe bomb for a gender reveal party.

I took out a life insurance policy after uni. Among the things I had to answer truthfully were if I was a smoker, if there were any known and frequently occurring hereditary terminal illnesses in my family, and if I engaged in pastimes and pursuits that posed an increased risk of injury or death.

I had actually quit smoking a short while before I signed the papers, and then went back to smoking within a year or two. I'm not sure if I would have had to notify them, but I then quit smoking for good about five years later and haven't had a single fag since, so I guess it shouldn't matter in the greater scheme of things.

All well and good, but if you lie on the form about smoking or dangerous sports, and then die from lung cancer while parachuting, they're not going to pay out on the claim; you won't care about this as you'll be dead, but the people left behind might.

You're not wrong in that insurance companies will try to cite any and all reasons that they can find to avoid having to pay out a large sum of money like that.

Your violation of the terms you agreed to still has to be substantial though and must have contributed to your death in an immediate manner. If you take up smoking and then one day you get hit by a bus in the street, surely your smoking had nothing to do with your actual cause of death. Possibly not even if you got distracted while crossing that street because you were in the process of lighting up a fag.

The insurance industry operates under the "utmost good faith" doctrine, even though these days the information asymmetry that caused them to do so has now reversed. As a result, if it's a non-trivial sum they'll try anything to avoid paying it.

It's a perverse incentive that turns up all over the place. Just as the insurance companies have entire teams dedicated to finding excuses not to pay out, train companies have entire teams dedicated to finding excuses to not be liable for delays.

I think all that is mainly because margins in the insurance industry have been dwindling for some time. Just like other easily automatable services like banking or travel, consumers are now able to compare prices online in a jiffy, and that has brought insurance premiums down. While the ability to sell direct-to-client has also saved distribution cost on the supplier side, i.e. for the insurance companies themselves, this kind of market transparency at a mouse click has made it harder to turn a profit against your competitors. And naturally, in a world of low interest rates, it becomes more difficult for insurers to invest their clients' money profitably.

It's not really that people live more dangerously nowadays. And with life expectancy and public healh still increasing steadily, the insurance risk shouldn't be greater than it ever was. It's the business itself that has become quite fiercely competitive, and if insurance companies find a way to cut corners, they usually will.

I got my car stolen over night once. I was out of town on a job interview in Maidenhead that I was scheduled to have the next morning, so I took a train from Manchester to Maidenhead the day before and stayed in a hotel down there. Then when I came back the next evening, my car was gone. It was fully insured and had a resale value of around £5,000 at the time. The insurance company thought it smelled a rat when I told them that I was gone over night, and especially when they asked to be handed my remaining car keys and I told them that I only had one other key. They insisted that cars normally come with three keys, and actually said to me on the phone that I shouldn't take it personally, but that they sometimes had people "who in the end couldn't really say for sure if their car had been stolen or not". In other words, they were actually fucking insinuating that I had my car stolen on purpose to collect the insurance, and/or that the whole thing was staged to scam them.

Luckily, I was then able to show them that the bill of sale from when I bought the car from a private seller three years earlier clearly stated that only two keys had been handed over to me with the car.

I then filed a complaint with the FCA against my insurance and told them I was accused of having my own car stolen, but it kind of didn't really go anywhere. At least my insurance in the end didn't get around compensating me, so I got nearly all of my £5K back. They still deducted about 250 quid because although I was able to prove to them that similar cars were selling for roughly that amount, and actually more than that in good nick, they said they had no way of ascertaining that my stolen specimen was really in a similar condition at the time of the theft. Bastards.

I'm pretty anxious about wintering my Dragon Trees and assorted Cactodes and Succulents. A couple of disasters happened last year where I managed to kill a five-stem Dracaena Marginata Tricolour and most of my succulents by giving them too much heat and water, and not enough light. I also accidentally propogated a load of Aloes the same way by letting them get "leggy", snipping the stems where they started going white, and repotting the cuttings after keeping them in my airing cubpoard for a week. The donor plants then just panicked and grew several pups in the same pots and now I have dozens of the fuckers.

Got some chestnuts from Lidl tonight. They're in the oven right now.

There was a time when sweet chestnuts were considered poor people's food. I think during Dickensian times especially. Sweet chestnut trees lined city streets and country lanes, and they were a free food source for the destitute who would pick the ripe chestnuts up from the ground in droves.

In pre-Industrial times, salmon was actually a poor people food as well. Because our rivers hadn't been polluted and the salmon fished to near-extinction, there was a vast abundance of salmon in British rivers and streams that was free for anyone to take, unlike the wildlife in forests and pastures, which was usually the personal property of the local Lord of the Manor. There are even accounts that servants complained that they were given salmon to eat every single day of the week, again because salmon was free and easy to obtain, and some cities actually passed ordinances that gave servants the right to a more diverse diet.

I love useless history knowledge.

I had some cracking ones at the Prague christmas market last year.

Nearly half of the ones from Lidl that I ate yesterday had the chestnut weevil in them though. It's a parasitic larva that eats the inside of the chestnut and then defecates into it, as you can see by the black spots it leaves. Not very appetising to look at, and the affected chestnut should not be eaten because the flavour of the intact parts of it will be ruined.

Don't knock them till you've tried them. They can be had in most supermarkets for a good price at the moment. They were 99p for 100g at Lidl yesterday, which is about one handful.

Put them in the oven for 20 minutes at around 200°C.

It also helps to carve an "X" into the outer shell before you put them in the oven, because that way, they are easier to peel when done.

Ordered some mixed wildflower seeds online so I'm taking a few days out of work to dig up the lawn before it gets too cold to sow. I've got a mix of Corn Marigold, Corn Poppy, Field-forget-me-not, Wild mignonette, Lady's Bedstraw, Field Scabious, Selfheal, Red Campion, Ragged Robin, Hedge Woundwort, Kidney vetch, Cornflower, Bird's-foot trefoil, Viper's Bugloss, Cuckooflower, Common Knapweed, Field Scabious, Wild Marjoram, Cowslip, Wild Red Clover, Tufted Vetch and Bush Vetch. I'm not going to chuck the turf, instead I've got some basic hugelcultur mounds going bordering the garden so just adding it to them.
Thinking I'll chuck the seeds around the exposed soil with a mix of fish blood and bone stuff then give it a good raking.
Considering nicking all the neighbour's garden waste before bin day to add in too, may be a risk of contamination from chemicals and disease but it seems such a waste that everyone's throwing out all the nutrients. There are horse fields around too, don't know if I could get away with stealing the dung at night.

One of the two varieties of succulent I'm trying to germinate has come up. Only three of the twenty seeds planted so far but I wasn't expecting to see any at all for another four days at least so that's all quite hopeful. A couple of houseplants on the way too, should brighten the place up.

I've brought an old electronic dartboard back to life that's been in my basement unused for over ten years. Had to buy a new DC adaptor because I couldn't find the old one. The plastic of the darts has become brittle though, they are kind of cheaply made and came with the board. The plastic tips broke off one after the other after a few rounds of playing and I'm going to have to see if I can get new tips from somewhere tonight. Or maybe just buy a proper set of new darts.

I think I will just buy a new set of mid-range darts. Seems like the most sensible investment. As I said, the ones that came with the board are shoddy quality as it is.

They all have the standard 2BA thread, so should fit any set of soft tip darts. The cheap long life tips below will work fine. Regardless of whether you buy new darts, I'd recommend getting plenty of spare tips - they sell them in bulk packs for a reason.

As an estate agent, you are not liable to tell people about the finer points of remortgaging, unless you've negligently and/or deliberately misrepresented facts in order to close the sale. But even then, a court could rule that the onus to double check all these things was ultimately on the buyer.

An estate agent's responsibilities don't really go all that far beyond accurately presenting a property to a potential buyer with all its flaws. Principles of negligence apply here as well, i.e. you must familiarise yourself in-depth with the property you are selling, but on the other hand, if you can prove that you as the estate agent and man in the middle were misled by the seller and passed on false information to the buyer in good faith that it was correct, you're not even liable for that.

Just under half the lawn dug now. It's starting to get easier but I'm not looking forward to finishing; it's nice to be gardening outdoors at this time of year, especially something this physical.

Lawn just over half-dug now. Getting blisters in some unlikely places which is the main thing slowing me down; my body's woken up a bit and my muscles are happy for me to do more in each day so I would if it wasn't for the skin falling off my palms. The trick is to get the turf up in unbroken pieces so all the grass seed that's laying on the surface doesn't spill onto the bare soil. May see if the neighbour has one of those long butane torches to run over the places where there's a lot of grass seed.

Snake plant arrived by post so I've re-potted that with a perlite topping and put it in the bathroom. Been throwing out less plastic so I have a huge amount of things I can use as pots but not so much I can use as the bowls for the pots to sit in.

Around the 3/5 dug mark now but the blisters are stopping me going any further, despite putting plasters and gloves over them.
Does anyone have any advice for how to heal them faster or stop them rubbing when I dig?

I don't know if they'd work on your hands, but I've used special blister plasters on my feet recently and they're miraculous. Maybe that's what you've already done, I'm not sure.

I bought some chestnuts from M&S tonight for comparison against the Lidl ones from the other week.

The M&S chestnuts are bigger and heavier, and more expensive, while disappointingly, they are less sweet and have less overall flavour. On the other hand, no sign of the dreaded chestnut weevil infestation on these here chestnuts.

Fucking burned my fingertips peeling one just now though.

I remember stumbling across a blog online once where somebody documented their bowel movements every day with a high-resolution photo of their poo in the bowl. I think it was actually supposed to be an art project. At least that's what they claimed without any obvious hint of irony.

With each Job interview, I am becoming more and more like Spud from Trainspotting. I just couldn't shut up. However, the intervew panelists did tell me that many of my answers were excellent (it was a competency-based interview). I just hope that they were the most excellent, because I'm currently earning less than a McDonald's employee for my 37.5 and I carn't facking cope.

Tell that to her family.


Also, she looks vaguely under age in the black and white picture on the left. So you're essentially knocking one out to underage pictures of a dead girl. Even Jimmy saville would probably think that's a bit much.

At work today someone received a bouquet of flowers and a helium balloon from Interflora as a first anniversary present from her boyfriend.

Everyone said it was a massive show of insecurity on his part and it's his way of marking his territory to warn all the men in the office to back off her. I've had a look online and the flowers cost over £50 and then extra on top for the balloon and vase it came in.

What did she reckon to it though?

I tend feel like as blokes, we disapprove of that kind of gesture because we don't like seeing some prat let the side down, by causing everyone else's bird to give them that "you never do that" look.

By the same token I feel like birds tend to downplay such gestures and pretend they're embarrassed, when secretly, nothing makes their clit tingle like all the other women in the office sat there with the monk on thinking "my boyfriend never does that."

I think she liked it. She seemed more surprised than anything.

For a bit of further information, this isn't the first time he's had flowers delivered to her at work and he's definitely punching above his weight with her. Also, when her marriage was falling apart she had a couple of brief flings with much younger men, although neither of them work here anymore.
