Mini Cooper kept mum. So what if our manual is incorrect. no keys for you

Alas the possibility that a car company could do anything other than suck at customer relations remains as rare as rocking-horse poop.While everyone understands our position and regrets they can’t do more  the fact is the Mini Cooper manual says that the car can’t start without the keys in it.

Mini dealers and the Mini helpline say it can.  Ergo you lost they key and you need to buy a new one.  No one is concerned that the car starts without a key in it which is rather alarming. It’s not alarming the car didn’t give a warning that there was no key.

So what we have here is  a car that can be started sans keys  in the car. It looks like any elevation of the key greatly increases the distance at which the car can be unlocked and driven away and the sun roof is likely a big factor. So for fun some experiments will follow.

P.S. Letting us buy the key at cost was rejected. Ok  so for the sake of losing NO money. Result. That’s one less 2012 Clubman sold plus  way more public noise about their customer relations being poor.  Nice going  Mini.

This family thing, it’s a brand.  while they hadn’t fooled me with their story I would have expected they’d at least pretend that they were able to do anything than quote manuals ( incorrectly ) 😛  to me.

PPS Anthony’s managers  You have no fucking brains. Seriously  what the hell makes it in your interest to deny a reasonable request ( key replacement at cost) based on your erroneous manual which   some telephone dick told me to go read and understand.  What happened to, ah  I see that’s in error , let me find out rather than being a total  cock about it?

This kind of betrayal demands a special kind of living hell. Kickbacks for jailing youths.

Pennsylvania rocked by ‘jailing kids for cash’ scandal –

For the judges that sent kids to detention facilities because they got kickbacks?   Maybe, but the real culprits  those that allowed it go on. The public. Those that would even support a system that could allow jailing minors  for three months for creating a spoof site on MySpace are more of a problem then the idiots  that order it.  

It’s never been the politicians , it’s always been us.

Be seeing you.

The clergyman told stunned casualty nurses he fell backwards on to his kitchen table while hanging curtains.

He happened to be nude at the time of the mishap.

the dumb things Scottish cops say: stolen items can end up in hands of criminals?

Filed under Anarchy from the UK, state gone wild

In the Duh!  section of Today’s Scottish news it seems that  the theft isn’t as criminal as the “reset” of the item. Stolen gun 100%  in the hand of a criminal.

BBC NEWS | UK | Scotland | Highlands and Islands | ‘Success’ attracting crime gangs

The recovery of the guns was extremely important, following the break-in we dedicated a significant amount of resources to this enquiry, and it is always a concern when firearms are stolen as it is likely that they will end up in the hands of criminals.

Obeying the law can be fun, and work wonders. best civil disobediance ,ever?

Once more here are some links to a UK comedian, and activist, Mark Thomas.

  I brought him up last year in this post and holy  hell this is the follow up. The original audio feed has gone but there’s a You Tube version  Part 1,2 and 3  follow. I promise this is worth your time.   This is the realization of what “Tv Nation” could only dream of  on their most lucid day. 


Part 2  and Part 3 .

 Demonstrations  in the UK near Parliement without  prior permission was made illegal.  One person constituted a demonstration if there was , at the policeman’s disgression,  a  political statement.   Meanwhile the agents of the state continued holding events with out requiring, or being in fear which is where  came about.   Looks like the the law’s repealed  so his involvement seems to have had an effect.  Please give the first ten minutes  your consideration  and think about the fun you can have obeying the law.     Butler Shaffer relates a few suggestions from one of his recent articles.

Many cities have ordinances making it a misdemeanor for a homeowner to fail to cut his/her grass before it reaches a stated limit on height. Someone told me of an acquaintance who let his grass grow almost to the maximum height allowed. When one of his neighbors commented on this, the property owner went into his house, brought out a yardstick to measure the grass, then commented that the grass still had two inches to grow before reaching the statutorily-defined limit. He then reportedly asked the neighbor “you don’t want me to violate the ordinance, do you?”

A friend of mine told me of the practice of one of her male friends who was subject to the Selective Service System. One of the mandates of this agency was that those subject to conscription had to keep it advised of any relocations. This young man carried a stack of pre-addressed post-cards, upon which he would write: “I am now at the Rialto Theater at 3rd and Main” and drop it in a mailbox. After leaving the theater, he would send another post-card reading: “I am now at the Bar-B-Q Rib House at 10th and Oak.” 

Come on let’s be the bestest , most compliantest ,  citizens ever:D

With all due respect M’aam One can bite me.

 There’s one thing that I  can’t stand which is that there’s way more than one thing. There’s a myriad of things that I won’t stand for and in the truest sense of the phrase monarchy is one of them.

  Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

Loyalty oaths for kids are sad, really sad.  For adults it’s even worse as they should know better.  Despite the names changing to fit political expediency at the time ( Gee the British Royals changing their name  to something a lot less German) or the US pledge of allegiance which  added in the phrase “under god” in 1956 really are a part of the zeitgeist.    The obligation isn’t bi-directional  and  when you look at it from practical effects.     FED is your lord,   Tax payers are vassals and the difference between the two  is  better bookkeeping.

If children refuse to take part, he added, “are they then going to be told or taught that they are somehow less British or less loyal or less patriotic?”  (   Seems to work that way out here in the colonies)
