    Renewable meet worldwide needs of energy?

    I wonder how much opinions have changed in the last few years? We can see now that renewables have increased in demand and popularity, with recent news in the UK and France about having an eventual outright ban on petrol and diesel vehicles. I've always thought it very interesting to assess...

    Steep Driveway

    A speed bump would just surely complicate matters? It's only going to make it more difficult to get in and out. Not sure there's really much you can do to make it better. Make it into a car elevator?

    Advice: Safety anchors for harness when cleaning roof

    Wouldn't let anyone on my roof! Then again, no way you'd be able to get onto it given its angle. Don't ever risk it anyway really.

    Canada takes top spot

    I enjoyed reading your incredibly response. No, we're sarcastic here too, it's just my fault for not getting it! You raise a very good point about Canada. Then again, I imagine areas of the US are a lot more pleasant to live in. At a basic level, climate is important and trust me when I say...

    Canada takes top spot

    Apologies if so. I've come across people with that exact viewpoint before so it isn't always clear - especially on an internet forum!

    Vacant house security

    Timer activated lights are a very good idea. If they're just left on constantly through the night, it wouldn't be hard for someone to realise no one is in. Security van would be too expensive. The idea about the cops isn't too bad though

    Canada takes top spot

    You realise how illogical your argument is right? You've literally just used a straw man argument to speak out against having a large state - something which the UK does not have. A lot of the things you speak about require choice. Energy providers, food, homes. They all vary in standard and...

    Toy stuck in bathtub faucet

    As with above, use an old coat hanger. If not, those picks look like they'd be a good investment. I guess it depends just how much of a lever you can get around the toy to pull it out.

    Canada takes top spot

    Shows you the quality of it if it's still underfunded and comes out best. The quality is second-to-none, but the UK simply needs more doctors and nurses, it's as simple as that. Our ranking may slip post-brexit if we can't attract nurses to the country. Big IF, but still a cause for concern.

    Canada takes top spot

    Look at the UK for healthcare. We pay through taxes and have a great system. The fact you have to have medical insurance is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong the NHS has problems and is criminally underfunded, but it's nice being able to get treatment for free no matter what your circumstances...

    Broken cord repair

    With above. Best advice I could recommend is simply buying new ends or replacement cord. Also either spray your cords with some repellent to keep your dog away or muzzle him otherwise he will not have a nice ending eventually. Or could you put protective casing around them? Worried more for your...
