Such a shame. I grew up watching him from The Sweeney, Minder, On The Up, etc... then most recently New Tricks.
I loved On The Up.
I still say, 'just the one Mrs Wembley'.
Dennis Waterman played the wealthy business man who started out from a taxi firm into a chauffeur driven car service, who was going through a divorce, the show revolved around his house, the house keeper, Mrs Wembley, His Chauffeur, Sam, his assistant, Maggie (who sort of had a crush on him), and various others that played parts here and there.
Mrs Wembley, fond of a glass of sherry.
Mrs Wembley would say, I think i'll have a glass of sherry,
Often, all at the table would say in chorus, 'just the one Mrs Wembley'.
MW: would you like a glass of sherry?
other: yes, that'll be nice!
WM: I think I will have one too, just the one!
other: just the one Mrs Wembley.
@Roadkilled Sadly, it does happen. I remember a couple of accidents where the drivers overcooked bends in the road or overshot intersections and shed their loads, but fortunately no-one was hurt in those instances. Collisions were a more frequent occurence and then there was the odd mechanical failure that would result in something like a grain trailer tipping at 100km/h on a country highway. You can imagine the mess that makes.
@shop-teacher original as in new old stock. He imported every available body panel from south America. He doesn't care about original to the car. He's all about using a better available piece instead of restoring a savable piece that came on the car. Not that any of this is bad it's just less restoration and more building.
@bloody-the-resident-shitposting-saffer I’ve always wondered whether we’re celebrating the fact that he failed or the fact that he tried. Guy Fawkes Day having officially recognised status (in some countries) suggests the former, but celebrating with fireworks suggests the latter…
@shop-teacher As the van slid sideways, the front right wheel was the first to go off the pavement into softer dirt. If the dirt was soft enough, the wheel would have dug in and acted as an anchor. The van sliding sideways would probably have rolled over that wheel regardless of the loading. (At least that's my guess.)
@pip-bip It doesn't look like the inflator fired fully. This probably wasn't triggered by the sensors. I'm guessing something else happened. The igniter could have been partially triggered by the vibration. Either the camera mount was very loose or there was something else wrong with the car making it shake like that.
@pip-bip I saw that video yesterday and it made me think of good and bad designs in the United States. In my town, the local shooting range, the Sportsmen's Club, is next to the schools. The targets are placed away from the buildings and it's set up for safety. It just means that you get used to the sound of gun shots. It's been this way for years and everybody seems to be reasonable about it. There are a lot of hiking trails near the range, but it's set up to avoid issues and it works. In other words, you can have a shooting range in the middle of an American city as long as everybody acts like reasonable adults.
@urambo-tauro No, no, I think what happened here is that the collision detection routine encountered an overflow error, and glitched by reversing the velocity vector. Game engines act weirdly sometimes.
@s65 I never worry about the level of overspend on bikes that are like family pets.
Bike painting, I think, is better done by those with real painting skilz. A hastily spray bombed bike almost always looks crappy. Guy in the video has many skilz.
