Believe it or not it the way we are taught as refrigeration mechanics on how to empty flammable gases from refrigeration systems. These are obviously smaller commercial and domestic systems but we attach a bunsen burner style burner and light the gas coming out. When the flame stops it is ready to work on such as using a oxy acetylene  torch to remove pipe work to remove compressors.

Anyone got a link to a betting agency who will take a bet on the race, I live in Australia and cannot fine a single betting house with odds.

wow lewis had some shit luck. I feel really bad for him. he looked crushed. he is going to need to win the remaining races if he wants wdc #4 this year. I'm not sure that will be possible with his bad luck this season.

 

it does look like ferrari has given up. seb was like oh well after the crash.

 

rb is finishing really strong this season.

 

 

Shit luck? When the other Mercedes engines are coming home and his are the ones that pop I would say that maybe they need to look a little further than the engine for the fault!

They may want to see if the connection between the steering wheel and the driver seat is faulty.

 

 

+1 on this observation

A fellow I worked with several years ago use to every year live and fish with the locals in Arnhem land every year for about 3 months. He told me the old school way of dealing with the crocs was they would catch it then bash the crap out of it. This would some how chase the croc away. This was how the kept them away from the watering holes.

It could have been a load of shit but he seemed genuine.

Steve Clark I absolutely applaud you. That was just brilliant, Thanks for the laugh.

Well done on the design, I hope it goes gang busters.
