    Yeah I've only seen this on Landrovers and terribly souped-up range rovers.
    The dub scene (for the modern ones anyway) is almost definitely perpetuated by grown-up couples who have L3 in their homes and union jack cushions in their campers with a huge television and built-in surround sound system.

    I must stop judging. Maybe tomorrow.

    Worked for someone many years ago who had this on a bit of paper taped to one of his kitchen cupboards. He couldn't have been a less likely character to fulfil this counsel though, and it gave me the same feeling you get when you see L3/wine mom etc. in some poor sod's gaff.

    My hot water smells of sulphur. A cursory google tells me it's likely caused by elevated levels of hydrogen sulphide and sulphur bacteria in the water. All the results are about replacing anodes in water heaters - however I don't have a water heater, just a combi boiler. On top of that the smell only comes from my kitchen tap, not the bathroom taps downstairs or upstairs. What kind of problem am I experiencing? I'm planning my #40kKitchen for early next year at which point I'll replace the boiler so ideally I don't want to have to shell out too much now.

    A combi just heats the mains water as it goes through, either your mains water is bad, or there's a tee off the pipe somewhere which has been capped off and is too long (long enough to hold stagnant water).

    Living where I do every other house is like that one andyp posted.
    The occupants are likely to say "all lives matter" and refuse to wear masks in supermarkets. Yes I am snobbish and judgemental and I don't care.

    Take it to a luthier and they may put a truss rod in, (or a non-adjustable carbon rod) to stiffen the neck up. Love a good archtop

    And this thread...proper lolz. I was wondering (in fear) about all this shit the other day.
    You haven't lived until you've been to a garden centre in the countryside (that's not a slogan) and seen swathes of the things. Example:

    Please tell me if there is somewhere where there isn't this diabolical landfill for sale to vacuous fuckwits and I will go and live there.
