Quick Question Thread

It sounds very like Threads.

I've only ever heard of Threads through this forum and that sounds much more traumatising, although I suppose a live-action film made and set during a time of actual nuclear panic would feel more pertinent. One thing I do remember about Brother in the Land was two of the characters having having a baby post-bomb and it being born with no mouth. Nice image.

One for the P&B petrolheads; why is my car squealing when I drive? Just started the last 24 hours. Not when braking (or not only when braking at least), but when driving generally. Hard to pin down a cause or occasion, but seems to happen when turning right or accelerating.

Suggestions welcomed. I will, of course, take it to a mechanic also.

I have rolled down the windows, turned up the heating, sent my bank details to a killie fan and driven to 12 Ruel Street with my maw.

Got some in the boot, but no idea what to spray it on. Everything?

Sounds like a belt, possibly alternator belt. Does it give a loud squeal when started up cold?

It's the only way. 

I spoke to a mechanic about my right front tyre 'crunching' when I drive off after the car being stationary for any length of time. "It might just be a stone lodged behind the backplate getting lodged and then as you drive off, it'll come loose. It might fall out but it could be something more serious" 

I heard all that, all I've taken in is "it's a stone that's stuck and will fall out".

Got two job interviews coming up. The first is this week and I’d take the job reasonably happily. The second is in a fortnight and the one I really want. What should I do if I get offered the first one- 

a) accept the job but be honest about going for another job

b) accept the job and keep quiet about the second interview and bump them if I get the job I want 

c) ask them to wait a couple of weeks before giving my decision

No.
Could still be a belt, would inspect them and check they aren't loose or worn.

Do you have a Bjork CD stuck in the stereo?

Could be your power steering fluid needs topped up.

Is that something I can buy and do myself?
