Re: Maggie Twatcher

Rod, I don't think there's any serious scientific debate about whether humans or aliens built the pyramids. And if humans could build such large structure thousands of years ago, why couldn't all the other large ancient structures which are still around for us to see (and probably many which have de...

Re: Maggie Twatcher

I suspect that many radio stations will "censor" it, and for sure the BBC will. However, "censoring" records is nothing new, During the Queens' silver jubilee in 1977, the BBC wouldn't play "God Save the Queen" by the Sex Pistols and it still got to number one. The BBC also "censored" "Je t'aime" an...

Re: Purpose built shooting vehicle.

Anything that doesn't say Land Rover!! They are the most unreliable, most uncomfortable, most overpriced vehicle around. I shoot with 2 pals, each of whom has a Land Rover - we need 2 because one is always broken down. Frequently both are broken down - then we take my Nissan X Trail - not because it...

Re: Maggie Twatcher

You may be right, there may not be a "God". There was something though, there's just too much gone on unexplained. I believe Stonehenge, although built over several years, would have been impossible to build as there just wasn't the required amount of folk in the south ? All these temples etc abroa...

Re: Maggie Twatcher

Hartshot, Religion? - easy!! - it's not true - none of them are true, there is no sky fairy or whatever you want to call your personal deity. Believers who say "God works in mysterious ways" when they don't understand something in the natural world are simply displaying their intellectual laziness. ...

Re: Banning a member from here

Most of these pan and tilt units use AC synchronous motors, either 24V or 230V. and they are heavily geared to reduce the speed of the output shafts to just a few RPM It might be worth it if you can replace the 24V motors with 230V motors with the same output speeds because there's a huge choice of ...

Re: Banning a member from here

Declan,
I hope you win it - and cheap because it has 24V AC motors.
You'll need a 12V DC to 24V AC converter and they're hard to find, although you can get them from here

Re: Mangey Foxes

Got to agree with George on this one H. I've shot 4 in the last week or so and they've all been in good condition with no sign of mange.
Having said that, none were anywhere near a town.

Re: Banning a member from here

connect my watec camera and/or thermal to it, bolt it to the top of the truck connect it to a monitor so I can drive around in the warm and spot eyeshine/heat signatures then turn and shoot. Have a look here. http://www.nightvisionforumuk.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=2506 HaHaHa, I thought I recognised...
