The front fell off? That's not very typical.

The problem is the nut holding the wheel.

It's ok. At least they're out of the environment now.

No cardboard.  Cardboard is right out.

Just tighten the Jesus Nut on them.
 
2013-05-23 03:20:22 PM  
So what went wrong?

Well, the front fell off.

There's nothing out there but the sea, some fish, some birds, and 20,000 tons of crude oil.

OK, fine, when the vehicles onboard sensors detect a problem, the radio will automatically start blaring yakkity sax.  Are you people happy?

Coincidentally, most of the problems I deal with at work are caused by loose nuts on the keyboard.

Clarke and Dawe? +1 if so.

I'm not saying the car is unreliable, it's just maybe not as reliable as some of the others.

"A Nissan Motor GB spokesman said: 'Over time, the nut that holds on the steering wheel can become loose."


Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.

 
2013-05-24 12:00:50 AM  
What if there was more than one nut, like maybe two or three?

I do not know if modern cars are different but when I have had to remove a steering wheel from an older vehicle it takes a special tool to remove it.  It was both bolted and pressed on to the end of the steering shaft.  Taking one bolt out would not affect steering enough to loose control.

I am so proud of the ABC, Clarke, Dawe, the Internet and Fark, that an absurd political metacomedy dialogue from the endpiece of a current affairs show (and which was only remotely related to the real-life stranding of a cargo ship) has become so well-known and beloved the world around.

And the part of the ship the front fell off of...
