Funny that.... I've got an aerosol can of anti-fog spray for crash helmet visors and it cost me about £2

Stuffs crap for visors anyway

Where did you get yours ? I paid about £3.99 :-(
I really like it, and it works well on my specs, although as I only use them to drive I've mostly used the stuff on safety goggles, protective face shields, and the like.
It's good stuff :-) Before this, the bloody things would fog up in seconds.

Although I don't know if it could affect lens coatings on specs ? So anybody reading this, use at your own risk :wink:

I might get some. Hanging about motorcycle shops could give me some cred and help get me in with the biker babes I dream about.

I saw a sign in one of the tube stations in London detailing how many deaths and accidents there had been on that line... I found it a bit scary to think that one of my fellow passengers might take a leap then and there! 8O

I saw 'The Tube' on Sky3 and they had to deal with the aftermath of a 'jumper'
as they call them - walking along the tracks picking up the pieces... Image

I heard once that whenever you're on an underground train in London and they mysteriously terminate at a stop for no reason, thats why......

They do that all the time anyway :)

I saw one at Acton Town Station one night, guy was lucky to be alive. I tend to stand at the wall or the centre of platforms now.

I watch that show too, on sky travel, i quite like it.

Seen two episodes with 'one unders', first was a guy done it at south wimbledon, and it followed the driver coming back to work, she ended up not driving, other was a guy who had a 15yo step down in front of him, if the driver hadnt reacted as fast the boy wouldve died thru electrocution, as he put his hands on the live rails because the train stopped before it hit him

Must be a bummer when you try top yourself and survive


At least the guy tried to do the decent thing by attempting to top himself during the day and not at rush hour when I'm trying to get home!

Ok I'm a selfish ba**ard but not as selfish as throwing yourself in front a subway train

First time I've heard about a jumper for ages....doesnt happen on the glasgow network very often. Recent evidence shows you are more likely just to hurt yourself and piss everyone off

The London Underground has these things called 'Suicide Pits'. They're designed to try and prevent the death of any 'jumpers'. If you're really all that interested go here: http://www.bmj.com/cgi/content/short/319/7215/957
