Don't move to the state of Victoria (Australia) where it's actually illegal to replace your own lightbulbs! Probably the nation's most broken law.
Yeah, it's much easier to make regulations that makes no sense in any situation

Qantas for a long time was a Boeing-only airline, and Australia's small aviation manufacture industry (only started really in WW II) has consolidated and is now a Boeing outpost. They make some bits for the Dreamliner in my town.

Getting back on topic... No K-3 here, had to replace the run and start capacitors in my ~20 year old air-compressor.

Fun fact:

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is made from about 2.3 million bits and pieces. Those pieces are manufactured and sourced from all over the world.

In contrast, the Boeing 737 is built from around 400 thousand parts.

That's almost 6x more parts!

Goooooood choice. I've been longing for some Bavarian wheat beer for some time - I know a couple of pubs that have some on tap, but I still need to find a supplier of bottles for my fridge. The local Tesco superstore has two aisles of beers from around the world, but no German wheat beers!

It`s a short hop across to Germany from where you are. Go and enjoy the real deal from the tap in some 1700`s beer-hause. Went there, did it, freaking fantastic

My dad was a wheat farmer, and I like a wheat beer, too ... I enjoyed way too many of them when I was in Munich! :-D

I always have Erdinger with my dad when I'm home in Germany during the summer holidays, so I get my fair share
