    The stupidity od the Theory Test

    I have my Motorcycle theory test tomorrow and during my practise for it it astounds me how stupid it is. For example, on the 'hazard awareness' if you see a child wobbling on their bike who then turns into the road, the points don't start start until the child actually turns! So you spot a...

    Monumental Stupidity

    Yesterday I, along with my 13yo son, went out to change the oil and filters on the CLK and XC90. Did the CLK first as it is so simple. Showed him how to use the PELA pump to take the oil out, changed all the filters and got him to put the new oil in - job done. Turned our attention to the...

Written on the quote was " we are pleased to tell you that your premium has not increased this...

    Parking Stupidity

    I just nipped into town to pick up my wife from the in-law's house. Some moron has parked a large generic people carrier thing right across their driveway completely blocking vehicular access. Father-in-Law called the police and within 1/2 an hour there was a fixed penalty notice on it carrying...

    Parking sensor and pure stupidity

    Thought I would share how I have suffered for weeks and now feel slightly embarrassed, but it may help someone else with OAP moments. Brace yourselves! Shortly after buying my gorgeous ML55 the left hand parking sensor was constantly on. Driving me nuts turning it off every time I started...

    Clever MB electrics save me from stupidity

    I went for my first decent run in the CL500 this weekend, across the country to darkest East Yorkshire. Amused to see the trip computer range increasing on the motorway, I saw that earlier this year when I went to Goodwood with a friend in his 7 series Beemer, its as if you are making fuel...

    Criminal stupidity

    Friend of my son had an ugly experience early hours of this morning On rounding corner near his home was confronted by what he initially took to be white carrier bags in the road. Tried to avoid but sadly found out they were in fact white painted rocks of the type used to prevent parking...

    Wire free stupidity

    No.1 son has finally got the bits of his new gaming 'puter lashed together and running. Very impressive apart from the fact that simply could not get the wireless card to work. Hardwired into our router all is well, but no go on wireless. So I spend ages trawling through Linksys support...

    Distronic or just plain stupidity?

    E-Class is off the road for a few days so I'm back in the A-Class which although I love dearly is a completely different ride. Back home this evening on the usual commute which takes in a 7-8 mile stretch of winding up & down A road which is offically NSL but gives no real opportunity to...

    Keyless Go - Stupidity Question

    Hi All, Quick question on keyless-go. With this wonder of gadgetry it's possible to get in the car, start the engine and then walk away from the car with the key in your pocket and the car keeps running. If someone else (who didn't have a key) was to then jump in the car would they; a) be...

    Door lock - gross stupidity.

    Door won't open - Gross Stupidity Alert. Today I excelled myself in an act of absentminded muttonheadedness. The outer O/S rear door handle on my 190E 2.6 stopped working some time ago. Not a huge inconvenience as it still opened from the inside, so I figured next time it's in the shop they...

    ASSYST Sevice intervals: Con or stupidity??

    I am very, very annoyed. Many W211/S211 turbo diesel owners have noted that their miles between services are a lot lower than expected and differ from that of others. I recently had a “C” service and instead of the 12,500 miles start point (20k km) expected found that I ended up with 9200...
