What's Gripping Your Shit at the Moment?

We have a few interesting bridges, there is one that is often used as an off route trip for single deckers, they tried to send me that way once when I was covering a single deck route with a double decker, I just ignored them and went a different way. We have one route where two very different designed bridges are joined together and you would swear you can’t get a decker under but it will in the middle of the road, bit of an optical illusion. We also have a regular one that is 4 inches taller than a decker, for some reason trucks get stuck under it at least twice a year, I think they see us go under it and decide to ignore that they may be a few inches taller.

TFL said they were going to put a double decker under this during the Olympics, I said will it fit? They assured me it would. My next question was could I watch them try please? They said I could ride on the test bus if I wanted, but I declined. No idea height of DD bus so it may have fitted. I do note that since the Olympics the bridge height sign is 6 inches lower than before. It used to say 4.6m/15'

So it would fit if you let the tyres down and filled it with ballast.:classic_laugh:

It would fit anyway, the bridge is 14’6”

My mistake, inch to spare although an uneven road could provide a scrape or 2.

There's a formula for bridge height signs that errs on the safe side, so it is probably half a foot higher then that. But then some twat resurfaces the road and doesn't tell the bridge people who look after the signs that there is more or less room of course.

 

From Chapter 4 TSM

7.4.1.  The imperial figure shown on signs to indicate the available headroom should be at least 3 inches less than the measured height to allow a safety margin. If the resulting figure is not a multiple of 3 inches, it should be rounded down to the nearest lower multiple of 3 inches. Example 1: measured height 15’-2”: Step 1 subtract 3” to create a safety margin 14’-11” Step 2 round down to nearest multiple of 3” Step 3 sign as 14’-9”. Example 2: measured height 14’-6”: Step 1 subtract 3” to create a safety margin 14’-3” Step 2 sign as 14’-3” (rounding down not required as already a multiple of 3”)

Fucking pointless smart technology is whats gripping my shit at the moment. I was looking for a new jet washer this week and while doing some research i discovered you can get one that has a Bluetooth connectivity, why the fuck would anyone want that. all i want to do is it to point a hose at something and get it wet fast. My tumble dryer is the same i wonder if it will need therapy in the future because i cant be arsed to connect to it and i'll end up in court for neglect or some shit

People knew what they were voting for Bob!

Though you have to wonder what the rest of the world thinks when the PM has to declare that the UK isn’t corrupt, and Downing Street then has to declare that the PM is OK!

Just the declaration that its not correct poses the question of who brought it up that it is corrupt

There’s been a transportation crisis going on around Europe for weeks/months now, I talked to a couple of people in the industry today while trying to help a friend out. But how can you know of such a specific shortage a month in advance unless you’re just selling news out of scare mongering?
