Illegally downloading films, games, Music - your views?

Tax avoidance isn't stealing, and our government isn't allowing tax evasion at all.

Illegally downloading films, games, Music - your views?

@mattywarr - arguning that downloading the film doesn't cause a loss to a studio because you wouldn't have gone to see the film is bollocks.  You benefited from downloading and watching it, thus the studio incurred a loss.  Even though yours is quite a long post there's an awful lot of stupid in it.

@Nayan - when they're on the road cyclists aren't, usually a menace to pedestrians.  However, you get the occasional nobber on the pavement (never yield to such a nobber) and the occasional moron who runs a red light.  Karma will get them one day.

@SRNLR - exactly.  Unfortunately, people are stupid and don't think ahead, so while someone who clobbers another road user (pedestrian, cyslist, motorbiker, etc) with their car may sincerely regret it later, that's too late.

Advice needed please

Many programmes are 16 weeks long, so you theoretically have time, but do you have enough time to spare to do the training now that you have a couple of monsters to look after, too?

Do it.

@seren - mine did - it arrived about two months ago, and is entirely in English.  I'll see if I still have it.

I'm not arguing where road funding comes from (I already know).  I'm merely making the point that arguing that it's not road tax with people who think is is pointless because it's called that on their renewal notices - an official document.

Besides, given that a bicycle is a zero-emission vehicle the tax duty payable would be the same as it is on some Audi A1s, some Fiat 500s, some .

Why did you have to jump out of the way?

Re. "road tax" vs "VED", look at the top of your VED reminder next time you get one.  In big letters it says, "Road Tax".

There's at least one knob-head in any group.  This morning I saw two knob-head cyclists (riding on pavements), one knob-head pedestrian (dropping litter), but I didn't see any knob-head drivers.

You're missing something.  You get several beeps when intervals are nearing the end and you need to change speed, and it beeps (differently) when you're above or below pace.

As Puffy said, check the speaker.
