People talking about Dublin trump.

I swear to god it must make up >40% of all current affairs radio chatter. There seems to be no place in the western world where you can be forced to observe updates on his latest musings. I'd actually move to North Korea or somewhere equally remote and subjugated (like Cavan) to just enjoy one week without hearing the f**kers name.

I've no problem with reports linking him to possibly ending the world with a nuclear war as i can see it's relevance  ;)

There does however seem to be an over facination with all things he says and does from people over here.

I like painting. It's the preparation and cleaning up I hate. :)

I feel the same about sex.

People that dont drive around a mini roundabout.
Driving out over the top of it or just cutting across before it completely  >:(
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

That's what it is designed for, hence the name mini roundabout.  You have f**king little to be worried about kid.

no, it's the same as a solid white line. You're not to cross it.
For some vehicles this isn't possible and so not enforced but the rule still applies.

Unfortunately not punt.  From the highway code...

188
Mini-roundabouts. Approach these in the same way as normal roundabouts. All vehicles MUST pass round the central markings except large vehicles which are physically incapable of doing so. Remember, there is less space to manoeuvre and less time to signal. Avoid making U-turns at mini-roundabouts. Beware of others doing this.
Laws RTA 1988 sect 36 & TSRGD regs 10(1) & 16(1)

It's designed so that it can be driven over, as it is a mini roundabout and some vehicles have to do it, else it would be a big yoke with trees in the middle.  Any bit you not following?

I'd say he's just about right.  The bit below was the clincher;

All vehicles MUST pass round the central markings

People talking about "ladies GAA." Until they merge into the GAA then there's no such thing, it's the LGFA and the CA.

And what grinds my gears more is people giving out about the GAA "discriminating" against women's games when the LGFA or CA make a pig's ear of something.

All vehicles can't hence it's design, so it can be driven over.

"Yes and no."

It can't be both. It's one or the other.

A 40' Lorry can't drive around a mini round about (Fact), in fact a car has difficulty doing a 360 around it. Technically you are supposed to deflect slightly off the main carriageway and go arund it and if it's set out properly it will not run straight with the carriageway but large vehicles will have to drive thru the middle of it...

Hope that settles your tiff ;)
