    See how Edd can speak not into the mic and you can still hear him while he looks at everyone of you as he does? Yeah take note, Alex. You look so forced and unnatural constantly speaking straight faced into the mic with almost every word you say. Just looks bad imo and again unnatural and forced podcast

    Yeah, it's good thinking to include past big names. But don't get too bogged down in this. One of you looked like he was sat in a hospital waiting room waiting to have a bowel camera; the other was just a stage prop. in a bath. Keep up those challenges!

    As far as the false asking prices on Facebook Marketplace, for some reason with Facebook's algorithm, it won't always let you list the exact price you want to because it will only allow for you to list around the Kelly Blue Book value of the car. For example, I recently bought and sold a Neon SRT-4. Now here in the states, they have a massive bro tax, and it's impossible to find one completely stock. So with all of them either modified to some extent, fully built out or rusted out completely, the blue book value is much lower than what they are being bought and sold for. If I search for a SRT-4, every single ad will be listed as $1,234. But when reading the ads, they'll be asking for anywhere between $4-6K. So it's not a matter of being sneaky, it's just understood that if a listing is $1,234, that's just a placeholder and not the actual price

    Re the petrol stations. Being 55, I remember when a garage sold petrol,diesel ,free air and water,inside they sold fuses and top shelf magazines . Nowadays it seems they are supermarkets that happen to sell petrol and diesel,and air and water (for £1) So now people,buy fuel,pop in to pay for the fuel,do their weekly shop,do the lottery,choose a bottle of wine ,all the time their car is parked at pump 3, with me sitting behind them gently loosing the will to live.

    My grandad worked on a construction site in saudi. one of their JCB type things had a runaway. They blocked the air intake and it stopped but the fuel + oil lines to the engine had been sucked flat from the strength of the engine turning over. Not quite sure about what caused it. Something about flamable gasses getting into the air intake. very scary though. Could have been dangerous

    On the subject of people sacrificing themselves for replaceable and/or insignificant things, I've seen so many people do this and I don't get it. I work as a mechanic, and I've seen people try to catch falling transmissions, I even saw a person try to "hold" a car on a hoist/lift when one of the legs slipped. Listen, you are never going to be able to keep that transmission from hitting the floor when it falls, you are never going to hold a car over your head on a lift, they are just going to crush some part of you, if not all of you. Stop trying to save replaceable items by sacrificing yourself. I've seen it on the roads, too. People swerving into oncoming traffic to avoid cats, dogs, squirrels (or skweerrills if you are British), etc. Just run over the damn animal, that's a better idea than crashing head on into someone else and injuring people rather than animals. I don't typically watch/listen to podcasts, but I had to watch this since Edd is a man of many interesting stories. I definitely was not disappointed.

    Bugger, only found out about the book giveaway after I bought the Kindle version halfway into the podcast.. still wouldn't mind a signed hardcopy :) btw @eddchina if you are still looking for procects for the new show, I have a VW T25 Campervan that needs a some (ok, a lot of) tlc (I'm constantly working on it..). An engine swap would be a good idea as the wasserboxer is leaking like a proper old VW.. won't mind a Subaru swap, or even electric ..
