My name's Dave, I'm 41yrs old, married with two children. I love poker, poetry and insightful debates that don't turn into arguments. If you can make one person smile every day of your life that life will never have been in vain, for the only truly wasted days are those where we didn't laugh.

  • Can you disconnect the automatic lights on a Peugeot 206?

    I own a Peugeot 206 and the automatic lights are are nuisance. Can the auto system be permanently deactivated? (I know you can hold the stalk button with the key in position 1 but mine is not working).

    I want to stop it functioning, mainly because they turn on whenever they feel like it and this has now caused a close call as another driver mistook this for me beckoning him out from a junction, i.e. flashing my lights.

    Any advice greatly appreciated, just to recap: I want to deactivate the automatic light control for a peugeot 206 (2002).

    Thank you.

  • Our Pink Convict Cichlids have bred successfully and we now have 100+ fry....?

    But we have been told that the parents may eat the young if we don't separate them?

    Fry are about 3 days old at present and the parents seem happy to nurture them but if anyone knows what would be best to keep the fry safe we would appreciate any knowledge you can send our way to help the process along.

    Extra info: One breeding pair, (Cavity brooders) approx 2 years old currently in a separate small tank (40ltr) as they couldn't raise their young in our main tank because of the other fish. Have had suggestions for a floating keep net for the young until they are older and a bigger tank will be required soon as well.

    As I said, any info regarding the breeding, keeping and safe measures to take for Cichlid babies most welcome. Thank you!!

  • A mate of mine asked if I'd seen Saw?

    I said I hadn't seen Saw but I had seen Saw 2. He asked why I'd seen Saw 2 before Saw? I said I've seen Saw 4 as well. He asked why would I watch Saw 4 before Saw 2 and why had I not seen Saw? I said it wasn't my fault and If I saw Saw 4 before 2 and I could still see Saw later. He said that no-one who saw Saw 4 before Saw would want to see Saw and Saw 2 but if they saw Saw before Saw 2 and Saw 4 they would want to see Saw 2, 3 and 4.

    I sort of see why I should see Saw before Saw 4 but does it matter if I see Saw 4 before I see Saw?

  • I have a Dell Lattitude D520 laptop....?

    Yeah, OK, stop laughing......

    Can this old work horse get an upgrade? It keeps popping up with 'Virtual memory too low' and having a slight heart attack if you ask it to do more than one task at a time.

    Can I upgrade the memory, RAM, etc etc and if so what would be the best solution.

    I appreciate it may just be easier to bury it and start again.

    All help appreciated, thanks in advance ladies and gents.

  • I don't believe in God, but nor do I deny his existence?

    I have never believed in God or any other deity, but as I cannot prove His non-existence, I am prepared to happily accept that many people do believe and gain strength and Comfort in that belief.

    My question is why have I found on my travels that few people share my attitude of live and let live?

    All I ever seem to see is either 'You're wrong, He is real' or 'God doesn't exist, Fact'

    No-one can prove His existence, no-one can prove He does not exist. So why not just accept that someone is right, but as yet we don't know who? Why does it need to get personal?

    I'm sure we all find out eventually, we die and then we know. maybe that's the way it's meant to stay. maybe we were never meant to know the answer.

    What do you think?

  • The name of this film?

    Thinking caps on folks,

    It was about a cop or ex-cop who somehow has a watch which can slow time in 10 second bursts. There's a scene in it when he does this during a shootout and moves people out of the way of bullets before they get hit.

    It's probably an eighties movie at best guess.

    Any help appreciated. Thanks.

  • how do you disable the double-tap on a laptop touch pad?

    My son is having a few problems with using the touch pad as he inadvertently double taps the pad thus activating the left-click function. I know you can turn it off so if you'd be so kind as to give me directions I can sort it for him.

    Thanks in advance to all who help me out.

    (he's only 8 yrs old btw, so still pretty new to laptop usage)

  • To all you Gooners out there.......?

    Firstly, I'm no gooner. In fact, I hate your team. HOWEVER.........

    I do support all English clubs in European games and just have to say (however much it sticks in my throat) that last night was pretty special.

    I was expecting a tight game with maybe 2 goals, not the total annihilation of one of the more difficult Euro sides.

    Fair play to you, your boys done good!!!

    Do you think you win it now???????

  • Is this just a coincidence, or a sign of re-hashed rubbish?

    Point Break - movie in which maverick-type guy is asked to become an insider of a group, falls in love with the girl he's using to get in with the group. She finds out, he proves his love by saving the day.

    The fast and The furious - movie in which maverick-type guy is asked to become an insider of a group, falls in love with the girl he's using to get in with the group. She finds out, he proves his love by saving the day.

    Avatar - movie in which maverick-type guy is asked to become an insider of a group, falls in love with the girl he's using to get in with the group. She finds out, he proves his love by saving the day.

    Is it just me or are stories getting so sadly predictable? your views?

    BTW, I'm not knocking the movie, just the tedious use of the same storyline again and again.

  • My answers have suddenly got quite harsh and spiteful?

    Just let rip at someone for something petty in their answer and thought afterwards....

    'Jeez, that was a little unnecessary.'

    Do you think it's because

    a) I've been drinking

    b) I've been on here too long

    c) I've been awake for about 36hrs now or

    d) I've become irrational, the little gimp deserved a roasting for posting such a pathetic response to a quite thoughtful question?

    Also it should be noted that I'm hungry and tend to get tetchy around this time of day anyway.

    In fact, don't bother answering, I think I know the answer already.lol

  • It occurred to me while answering a few questions over the past few weeks that mates can really drop you in it?

    On separate occasions they have:

    Left me alone in a restaurant after doing a runner on the bill.

    Burnt my hand with an iron because they wanted to do the 'put a mates fingers in warm water when they're drunk to make them wet themselves' trick, but had no water to hand.

    Locked me in fridge.

    Handcuffed me to a lamp-post.

    Sold me on eBay (or at least tried to before it was removed)

    Wall-papered my house for me. On the outside.

    Put five of those gizmos from greeting cards which make the annoying tunes when opened all around my house.

    You could be forgiven for thinking with mates like that I don't need enemies, but I still wouldn't swap them for the world. What have your friends done to you that is a) funny and b) requires revenge?

  • What's left for me now except sitting in a chair and dribbling?

    I'm going to be.........40 yrs old next week.

    I know, I know, it's all over bar the smell of piss, care assistants, moaning about teenagers and the weather, comparing prices 'when I was a lad', boring the hell out of people about the good old days,daytime TV and wondering if 7o'clock is too early to go to bed.

    With that in mind. . . . . . . . . . . . .

    If you could re-live just one year of your life....which would you choose and why?

    I'd have 22-23 yrs old cos we hadn't bought the house yet, didn't have kids yet, but went out all the time and had sex twice a day.

    Now I'm out all day and don't have time for sex. lol

  • Go ahead, make my day?

    Well this should be fun, ever wanted to really insult someone? Now's your chance. Let rip with a little tirade of abuse, insult me. You can't offend me, but the most unusual or creative will bag the 10 pts.

    No need to hold back, say it like you mean it!

    p.s. chose J&R as it supposed to make us laugh.

  • Does anyone else think this competition is incorrectly named? Champions League?

    Let's be honest, only about 12 of the 32 clubs are 'champions' anymore, all the others are second and third place. Should it be renamed something like:

    'European League Championship'

    European Super Cup'

    Whatever it is, just not champions league, because it's not just champions anymore.

  • Don't you just love the confusion caused by country specific questions?

    Every now and then, someone will ask a question that only those from there home country would know the answer to, whilst all the others have answers like:

    'What?', IDK, (and my favourite) 'I don't know what that is'.

    Why do they bother to answer a question in a way they just shows they know nothing about it?

    If I don't know, I pass and go onto another which I may be able to help with.

    Do most answer Q's just to get 2 points? Becuse I'd find that a bit sad.

  • I have been reading quite a few questions, and have decided on a few conclusions?

    1) Atheists will never accept the religious point of view.

    2) Those with religion will never accept evolution theory.

    3) They both believe they're right.

    With this in mind, I would like to ask the following:

    Would it be possible that God/Allah/Whoever created the Earth with just enough for life to start and then let it evolve into it's current position? A sort of evo-creation theory?

    I know this will provoke a lot of hard-liner denials from both sides, but the question is,

    is it possible? Not fact, not the only option, but a possibilty?
