Why you shouldn’t drive slowly in the outside lane

If you drive on the correct side of the road like people in Ireland and a few other enlightened countries do, the outside lane is the right hand lane. The rest of the world bizarrely drives on the other side so they should avoid the left lane. 😉

As the AA says, there’s no such thing as the “fast lane”.

There’s no such thing as a ‘fast lane’ on a motorway. Traffic should always cruise in the left hand lane. The right hand lane is for overtaking other vehicles; it’s also used when approaching a slip road in order to let traffic join the motorway from the left. On a three-lane or multi-lane motorway the same rules apply. Keep to the left as much as possible. Traffic should never be in the right-hand lane on motorways if the left hand lane is clear.

First-stage landing | Onboard camera

SpaceX landed another Falcon 9 rocket last night and have already posted this 30 second video of the decent!

Hopefully we’ll see a normal speed video at some time too. Slowing this one down looks awfully glitchy.

How to turn off annotations in Youtube Videos

Youtube annotations are those sometimes useful but more likely annoying messages that appear over videos on that site. You’ve probably seen them when a video asks you to “Like and Subscribe!” or “Visit here for my merchandise”. They can be annoying.

The good news is you can disable annotations each time by clicking on the video settings through the cog symbol, but there is an easy way to disable them permanently.

Go to https://www.youtube.com/account_playback where you’ll see this page:

Simply click on Show annotations and in-video notifications to unset it and save your settings. Annotations be gone!

Winch Wakeboarding at the Lee Fields

Ireland experienced a deluge of rain, and it’s not finished yet, but for some it’s an excuse to wakeboard in a flooded field. 🙂

Nice to see Fergal out there taking photos. He’s not usually the one being photographed!
