Karate-do: My Way of Life
Karate-do: My Way of Life
by Gichin Funakoshi
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 11 Jun. 2010
A great history of Karate, told through an autobiographical narrative. An insight into the meaning behind the art, what it means to be a karate-ka, and a life story of the Sensei who brought karate from Okinawa to Japan and the wider world.

A thought provoking, well written book for anyone interested in the martials arts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, strong, welll made key ring sized knife, 5 Nov. 2009
Robust little knife and scissors combo. Ideal for a keyring.

Note: The picture shows the scissors as having a screw-head joint - it doesn't. It's only got a metal stud holding the scissors baldes together. Inferior models I have owned have broken on this joint. Lets hopes this is not a design flaw on this one. Time will tell.

Kenwood CO606 3-in-1 Can Opener with Knife Sharpener and Bottle Opener, 40 Watt - Chrome
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great opener. Easy to use bottle opener. Knife sharpner great too., 28 July 2009
Great product. This is my second in 6 years. Only reason for replacing first is not that it was broken but we managed to strip off the chrome finish with agressive cleaners and I wanted a new shiny looking one.

Use Dettox not abrasives to clean it, and this will last for many years and work a treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value. Complete replacement. Better than just the twine alone., 28 July 2009
Works well. Adds new lease of life to old strimmers. Complete unit. Better than just buying nylon line replacement only.

Buy three or four of these and apply regularly over a couple of weeks. You will have no cat cr-ap to deal with for years to come.

Great product. Buy many. Spread regularly.


Bad Science
Bad Science
by Ben Goldacre
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book!, 17 July 2009
This review is from: Bad Science (Paperback)
This should be compulsory reading for all 14-16 year olds. If the population of the UK walked around with the level of science knowledge and insight that this book imparts, then the world would be a better place.

It gives the reader the ability to think critically and debunk nonsense presented as science in the media and advertising.

Without it, the airwaves will continue to be clogged by the utter fukwittery of Gillian Mckeith, media remtards publishing scare stories on topics they fail to understand, and it would shut down the sugar-pill-pushing 'health' stores overnight.


BOSCH ROTAK 34 LAWNMOWER- 1400W
BOSCH ROTAK 34 LAWNMOWER- 1400W

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cut. Build quality is good, 17 July 2009
Cuts a neat finish with multiple heights.

Few design niggles - the 'folder over handle' - supposed to make it easier to store, yet very cumbersome once folded over - still takes up too much room by sticking out. Also when driving this up and down the long overhang at the back of the handle makes for easy steering but not for tight space cornering.

No cable tidy. Once the handles are folded down the cable has to be wound round by hand to collect. Messy and gets tangled easily.

Grass box - no way of telling its full. Really need a perspex window or slot along the side to see the grass filling up. Only way to tell it to take the whole box off or watch it dump cuttings over your lawn.

Grass box is a wierd shape once removed - makes storing it a mare, since it's not flat and won't easily stay put on top of the stored mower.

That being said - I do like this. Build quality is good and cut is great.
