Some are far more expensive tho. Mine is safe enough to use in f1
Don't wanna be a miserable git but most "experts" reckon you should change you bonce potty every five years anyway. That's why they have a date of manufacture on them. Both of my Arai's do.

Shocking idea! Bet he'd get a charge out of it.

You need to light a bonfire underneath the detector to check it out,dining room table and chairs is a good test.
Make sure the lacquer is not toxic as the fumes might kill you,Helen has already failed!

I don't know, first you won't 'lick your fingers' and touch the wires & now you're cooking the dinner. Snooky, you cooking the dinner surely isn't that rare an occurence is it? Don't forget that most women can multi-task, so thinking about whatever else whilst in 'the throws of passion' does come rather naturally. Before we know it ...it's over.....time for dinner

I knew it, you were trying on your new shoes whilst in the midst of passion. Did they look good against the light of the ceiling?

Cynical Moi?

Their large looking size was probably due to their close proximity to your ears

Maybe or may be not. It can be useful to have a free hand though
