What a load of irrelevant TOSH

In Topic: O/T - Corrie and Eastenders

12 January 2010 - 03:53 PM

Now then, let's get down to something serious.

OK, this is something that's always puzzled me, but can someone answer why Eastenders always seems to beat Corrie when it comes to awards and viewing figures? Being better is not an option, it's all down to personal opinion which makes it subjective.

I've a few questions I can't answer.

Is it because Eastenders is based in London and it's a parochial thing and that most of the media is based there?

Is it really that depressing? I only watch about 3 episodes a year, you know, Chrimbo at the in laws and such, yet there are never any laugh out loud moments that you get with Corrie. I do catch the odd 10 minutes here and there waiting for other programmes, but I never seem to see any humour

Are people down south so serious and struggle with the northern sense of humour?

It can't be anything to do with the actors as both seem to be splashed with good and very poor.

I never miss Corrie, Sky+ is my friend, but you can guarantee, no matter what serious story line is taking the lead, there is always something funny going on whether it be a script or a character, something I rarely see when I do watch Eastenders.

So, why do so many people watch Eastenders. If you watch Eastenders, why?

In Topic: Fiesta Mk 7 MPG

14 December 2009 - 09:20 PM

Having my new car for three days my miles per gallon have steadied at 33mpg, I know that's not particularly special but the engine is still very new, just wondering what everyone else is getting and if anyone is matching what Ford advertised?

As at present I do not own a Fiesta so can not give any direct mpg figures.
But what I do want to say is that since joining this forum I have seen many postings related to mpg and many people are not too happy with their results.
Overall it appears that for a small car the Fiesta is one of the poorer performers with respect to mpg.
What is it about this car is general, particularly the petrol versions that give uncompetitive mpg figures. Many other larger cars can do much better than the current Fiestas. I have heard/seen recorded that there is a software update that can improve this but little is recored on this forum.
Many people buy this car based upon the published mpg figures only to be disappointed when they try to achieve them in the real world.
Many be I've got it all wrong but in the present economic climate running cost/mpg do have a bearing on what to purchase.

In Topic: Adding USB to a MK7 with Bluetooth

Well putting my wife's fiesta aside, which luckily we ordered with usb. I have actually ordered the correct parts today to retrofit my Mondeo with USB. It is very well documented on the mondeo.org site.

Hope this info helps. Anything else i can try and tell you then let me know

Please could you give a link to direct us to this particular subject.
The Mondeo site is enormous and this link would save a lot of times.

Thanks for help.
